MS has announced that 3 Classic Dreamcast games will be making there way to XBLA, Rez, Ikaruga and Triggerheart Exelica.
Keep em coming.
Rez is one of my all time favs, can't wait till it comes out!
Dreamcast games on 360 = heaven
should be a good download
thats a guaranteed seller
I think I need to upgrade my HDD. All these great Arcade games coming out is killing my 20 gig.
I wanna see CHU CHU ROCKET!!!!!!
The 360 is the spiritual successor to the Dreamcast. Got a huge head start, with Peter Moore at the helm and the controllers bear some striking similarities. Clearly all of gaming has been influenced by the Dreamcast to a point that not many people realize. I salute MS's decision to bring DC games to the Arcade and I can only hope the trend continues in the form of:
Jet Set (grind) Radio
Space Channel 5
Chu Chu Rocket
Marvel vs Capcom 2 with online = must buy.
I give you props for bringing up Toy Commander. That was truly a classic. I have it on my PC under emulation.
I am so glad to see Ikaruga being rereleased it truly is one of the best shooters ever. I would place it at number 2(with Radiant Silvergun being number 1 of course.) For anyone who has never played the original Radiant Silvergun it has been added to Mame and runs at a decent framerate. If not it is available for import on Sega Saturn.
XBOX Live really is bringing a lot of great IP to the table. My props to Microsoft for making Live an even better experience.
I still have my original copy I purchased right after release. You gotta really get into the game to appreciate it. The controls are pretty complex for a realtively simple concept and I think that threw alot of people off. Oh well, it's still a must-own in my book. I just recently bought my 2nd Dreamcast, just for back-up purposes, so I can rest assured I'll be playing Toy Commander, and all the others, well into the PS5/Xbox 1080 years.
I will be purchasing Ikaruga and REZ for sure. Wonderful news!!!
Great news. I loved the dreamcast and was sad to see it go. I hope more dreamcast classics can make it. Its not really the typical game you'd see on xbla, but being able to replay Shenmue on the 360 would be awesome.
shenmue 1 and 2 on xbla would be great, but releasing shenmue 3 would be even sweeter ;)
