Dreamcast Junkyard @ Photobucket


It's been up for a little while now, but there's enough content there now to let everyone know about it. I've set up a Dreamcast Junkyard account on Photobucket where I will be placing as much official Dreamcast related images as I can find, so long as they are of high quality. The bulk of the account so far is something I've been working on for a little while now, getting high resolution scans of every Dreamcast game cover. Some of them are 600X600 pixels but a majority of them are a whopping 1400X1400 pixels a piece, the biggest available scans of these game covers that I know to exist on the Internet (of course, I could be wrong, but you'd have to do some deep searching to find any bigger than that).

I'm providing this as a resource for anyone to use. For example for articles on this very blog you could just go straight here rather than having to hunt for them on Google image search where you'll most likely find crappy small scans with nasty watermarks on them. There is also a bunch of artwork and wallpapers on the account in from the likes of Samba De Amigo, Jet Set Radio and Space Channel 5.

You'll notice this rather huge scan above in the covers section of the rare gem Cosmic Smash, one of the few games to come in a DVD case. This will be because I recently got my hands on it via good old Ebay, and I'll be writing an article on it sometime soon. =)

While I'm at it, here's some of my favorite covers from the games in my collection. Admittedly most of them are the Japanese covers as they always seem to be the most artistic to me. The PAL Crazy Taxi cover is a minimalist work of art, though. Click on them to see them in all their high-res glory.



That last one? I'll have to explain what that game is at some point as well..

Wow! Really awesome Gagaman(n)!

"most of them are the Japanese covers as they always seem to be the most artistic to me."

No crap man I was complaining about the cover for "Draconus: Cult of the Wyrm" aka "Dragon's Blood" about a year ago. The Japanse cover rocked and the North American cover just sucked.

Japanese covers are just cooler like 90% of the time. I dunno why the hell they change them so much for North American and PAL releases.

Great idea !
I'm making a bunch of articles which sometimes need this kind of stuff (I'm thinking about the logos mainly).
By the way I can soo not quit playing Cosmic Smash, this game rules so hard...

Another stunning post and another sterling example of the Gagman(n)'s commitment to making this site the best on the 'net. A frankly brilliant resource!
