Legacy of Kain: The Lost Worlds for some fascinating shots of the cancelled Dreamcast port. Interesting news snippets report the development of Midway's Arctic Thunder, that Shenmue 2 would span a massive 6 GDs (it didn't), and that Sonic Adventure 3 was already in development for Dreamcast despite Sonic Adventure 2 not even being finished at the time of publication.
Virtua Striker 3 shots are shown for the first time and there is an interesting story in the Japanese news section that details Sega's plan to incorporate a 'special chip' into DVD players that will allow them to play Dreamcast games. Whether this is a slightly misinformed nod to the ill-fated Pace set top box (read our previous article here for further info on that) is unknown, but if there's any truth at all in the report, it begs the question: why not just add a DVD drive to a Dreamcast rather than try to do it the other way round? It's a moot point now, of course...but it just beggars belief if there's even a modicum of truth in the story. Oh, and you can see our Sega Spud Dive article here.
Other previews in issue 17 cover Alien Front Online, Headhunter, Crazy Taxi 2, Sega Marine Fishing, Sonic Shuffle, Black & White and Skies of Arcadia; while reviews cover Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, Tokyo Highway Challenge 2, Mr Driller, Army Men: Sarge's Heroes, 102 Dalmatians, Chicken Run, Capcom Vs SNK, Tomb Raider Chronicles, Frogger 2, MTV Skateboarding, KISS Psycho Circus, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis and Donald Duck: Quack Attack. Anyway, enough bollocks from me in text form - your reward for getting this far is even more bollocks in audio/visual form:
Once again, apologies that it isn't HD. I spent 24 hours (literally) trying to upload in both 1080 and 720 but my terrible Sky Broadband would allow it. Moving providers in a few weeks so hopefully the next video will be 1080.
