Whilst it is similar to the Gamecube at first glance, the Dreamcast is reclusive and, though it is a capable combatant against most of it's competition it's secluded lifestyle means it simply cannot compete with the more numerous Playstations and Gamecubes, relegating it to scavenger status.

Sadly, this beautiful beast is endangered and may soon die out completely, the last of it's family-chain. Virtual-reality is cruel.

The Dreamcast was in the same generation as PS1 and the N64, not the GC. GC is the next gen alongside PS2 and Xbox.

It was released two years before the gamecube in 1999 (late 1998 in Japan) which places it closer to the release of the Gamecube in 2001 than the N64 in 1996 and the PS1 in 1994.

Because of this I see the Dreamcast as in the transition period between consoles as opposed to belonging truly to one generation or the other. Technically it was more powerful than the N64 and PS1 and it did okay before the 2000s when the Playstation came out (and the XBox in 2001) which were leagues ahead of it and jammed the final nail in the poor SEGA Console coffin.

That was the problem, by the time it came out people were like "Why do we need you, everyone already has a playstation/n64?"

And then anyone late to the game would have been like "why do we need you, we can just wait for the GC/Xbox/PS2?"

It's like being so late for a birthday party, you're a couple of days early for next years. You've turned up with a card that says "happy 20th birthday" and he's like "Why the **** do I care? I'll get ones that say "21st birthday" soon. And if I wanted 20th birthday cards, I've got ******** left from last year. GTFO of here"

Quite the steal too at £25. Which is about $30.

Nice! My friend and I drove to Nashville, TN in order to find me some memory cards. We found some cheap knockoff things for $5 and decided to buy them. They fit the slot, but I think they're back-ups or something? Not sure.

Either way, I play Soulcalibur every now and then. Like to kick ass and take names with Kilik.

I'm more of a SCIV guy. I had the original and boy was I pissed to find there wasn't any map-mode to play through (because RPG elements are so last decade, right?) but for the actual combat I much prefer VI. Maxi is still a skill-less spambot but all the others really come into their own and with a few painful exceptions like Hilde (whose vertical attacks are as ranged as Kiliks but her horizontal attacks are as short as Talim) I enjoy mixing and matching who I play as.

I hear ya. I own SCII for my PS2, and I forgot if I own one for my PS3.

I haven't had much time to play many games recently (after I get home from work I just play LoL and lurk this site for trending animes to watch).

I read those, too. It's just that when I start something I like to finish it before moving onto something. I'm currently watching Fairy Tale, with Attack on Titan to follow.

What are your suggestions?

Hrr. That's a toughie. For one I'd say read the Shingeki no Kyojin manga when you're caught-up on the anime (but that-said the Animé is overdramatic as hell. Seriously, the stuff that happens is really important and impactful but sometimes it gets really distractingly overdramatic (even for anime.) However, the Shingeki no Kyojin story in the manga is currently at a really great place and sufficed to say the story keeps throwing you for a loop with twist after twist. You'll also get to elongate your Shingeki no Kyojin exposure.

After that I'd suggest Kingdom. It's a manhua as opposed to a manga (i.e. made in china) and it shows in the differences in the art-style as well as the naming which can be distracting at first. However it manages to be some of the tensest and most realistic action I've seen in a manga. Granted, the protagonists still cut through their enemies with reckless abandon but you get to see a great amount of detail put into the tactics which is so rare these days. The tactics aren't linked to using magic or hitting their weak points so much as using what's around them to survive and Shin (the protagonist) is one of the most genuinely likeable shounen battle protagonists I've ever come across because everything he does in the manga feels like he earned it and it's always a hard-fought battle.

That's 160 or so chapters at the moment but after that I'd suggest Battle Angel Alita. It's a criminally under-appreciated manga that should be getting a live-action adaptation in a few years by James Cameron. It's heavily episodical and has pacing problems and it's obvious that the ending was forced upon it as it kinda hastens the climax. (However Battle Angel Alita: Last Order is a great retcon of the ending, bringing the series to a monthly-release battle manga that is still going today after so many years of publishing so there's plenty to enjoy in the Alita series.)

That's a lot of manga for you to digest but manga move faster than anime so... yeah.

Thank you very much! I'll try to get to those as soon as I finish (or catch up on) everything else I'm reading/watching.

Other than watching Fairy Tale, I'm also reading Because I'm Not Popular, Daily Life with a Monster Girl, and watching some weird anime I stumbled upon called Devil is a Part-Timer! ... Yea...

It's homemade. There are lots of tutorials if you are an electronicsfag.
Gamecube portables are hard. The NES portables are less challenging. I would recommend starting there, before raping a perfectly good gamecube.
