Sacrilege

Regular visitors to the 'Yard will testify that the Dreamcast is still the greatest console that you can get for under 30 notes - the Gamecube just doesn't come close. Furthermore, the DC's games library is without a doubt one of the greatest to ever grace a console - why else would Sony have shamelessly plundered so may titles for conversion to the PS2? However, it would seem to this keen-eyed gamer that the folks at Microsoft are also guilty to some extent of raping the DC for their own ends...The 360 controller is a blatant fucking rip off!!! Look:


This isn't the only console similarity I've noticed either:


So what if the Pippin is pre-Dreamcast - just further proof that the excellence of the Dreamcast transcends not only space, but time too.
In the spine tingling and immortal words of Jeffry Maning: "...the Soul still burns."

Speaking of Space and Time, I watched Treasure Planet today. What a great film...and that ending...I was fighting back the tears. Oh, and yes...I've discovered how to do links. He He!

...And before any wise ass explains that the reason for the similar button colours is because they are contrasts...I already know.

Christ! Put your knob away!! The Dreamcast's (or 'DC' as you so lovingly project it) popularity was a direct result of the all conquering, Man Utd place putting season that the mighty 'Gunners' achieved circa season 00/01? As your persona depicts that of an embittered 'Salford Red Sock', I suggest that you stop trying to wheedle your way into favour of your superiors and try instead to ensue the rapidly disappearing virtues of Vodaphone!! (Hello, God? What, you mean that there aren't any left!! Oh well if the cap fits...)

Bad news on my dreamcast releted buying adventure :(

the first shop i cam eto was gamestation and there it was a dreamcast sitting on the shelf w/box btw for £17.99! i grabbed it picked up four games (sonic adventure, virtual fighter, resident evil : code veronica and chu chu rocket) i was so happy, i went up to the counter with the items, the staff member said he would go get it out the back, he brought back nothing and told me that he had already sold it! i was really annoyed! Why would the person who brought the dreamcast not want the box?? very odd indeed! i then dragged my friends around 4 other shops with no luck, i did find the worse ever condition version of shenmue even it had the cardboard but not one of the sides, crazy, and at a crazy price 2 £12! anyways no luck yesterday i will try again next month in cambridge!

verbalabuser: er...what? This is a blog about the Dreamcast - what's Man United/Arsenal got to do with anything? I believe you've had far too much Fosters and Billy...

Randomesque: er...Ok.

Squall: Have you tried Cash Generator? They always tend to have loads, although beware - stuff from CG either doesnt work or is covered in filth. One other thing - older DC's have a bit of a bug, as I found out thrice before I realised how to fix it. Its something to do with the joypad controller board and a little resistor that is prone to short out meaning that your new DC will not recognise any pads plugged in. If this happens, take the lid off the console, look for a little resistor on the joypad board with F1 written next to it and tie a piece of wire around it's legs to bypass it. Hey presto - it'll work again. Just wanted to let you know because I had 3 DC's that did this.

Tomleecee said...

Wesley is my brother! Postin non sensical replies under pseudonyms because it's 'funny.' HHe's not bothered for a few months so I think he got the message!
