My stepsister contracted COVID-19 from her mother-in-law who contracted it, unknowingly, during Thanksgiving. My step-sister has type-1 diabetes, her kidneys were failing, and she was taken to the hospital and was put on dialysis.
She was in the hospital for two days, but she is now home and her kidneys are functioning again, but it’s still going to be a fight.
Unfortunately, her husband’s dad died of COVID-19 a day after she got out of the hospital. So, it’s going to be a bittersweet Christmas this year.
Please, everyone, wear a mask, stay at home this holiday season, and be safe.
Those games include Alice Sisters, Arcade Racing Legends, Astro Port Collector (includes Gigantic Army, Zengeki Warp, Satazius Next and Wolfflame), Rocketron, Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser, and Tough Guy. Satazius Next and Wolflame are also available outside of the Astro Port Collector collection.
Other games include Gigantic Army and Zengeki Warp. These are available for sale in a collection with discs for Satazius Next and Wolfflame. Only Satazius Next and Wolflame are also available for pre-order separately. The other two are only available in the collection.
The other game available is the previously teased (and already available for pre-order) three-dimensional arcade-style racing game, Arcade Racing Legends.
That brings JoshProd’s upcoming 2020 games to nine. These should make sure everyone’s Dreamcasts keep thinking for a while. 😉
Arcade Racing Legends, a 3D arcade racing game for the Sega Dreamcast developed by Intuitive Computer and published by JoshProd/PixelHeart, is now available to pre-order in PAL, and US, and JP style cases.
You can pre-order it at the PixelHeart shop. It is currently scheduled to be released this month, although it’s possible that it will ship later, as has been the case with other JoshProd/PixelHeart releases.
ScummVM is a program that recreates the engines that run various adventure and role-playing games, enabling them to play on many different systems, including the Sega Dreamcast. They are once again participating in the program that pays students to code for open-source projects during the northern hemisphere’s summer months, the Google Summer of Code. This year there are three students working on ScummVM projects (and one on Wintermute for ResidualVM, but the Dreamcast port for RogueVM is woefully out-of-date, so I won’t include that here):
Macromedia Director support:
Students: Nathanael Gentry and Dylan Servilla
Unicode and BiDi support (allowing for right-to-left text, among other things):
Student: Aryan Rawlani
Sorry all. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to post any news here.
So, to catch up, back in May Dreamcast Live reported that Mobile Suit Gundam: Federation vs. Zeon is back online. This includes both the original and updated DX versions.
Inada-s reverse-engineered the server for the Dreamcast and PlayStation 2 versions of the game. The re’d server was originally intended for use in an emulator, but Shuouma adapted the code to work on real hardware as well.
This is the twenty-fourth multiplayer game to make it back online (including the unofficially released PBA Tour Bowling 2001 and Internet Game Pack as well as Sega Swirl, which is played through e-mail). It is also the first Japanese-exclusive title to make it back online.
RushOnGame now has the five Dreamcast games available for sale as part of JoshProd’s Series 4 release: Magic Pockets, Captain Tomaday, FX Unit Yuki: The Henshin Engine, Armed Seven, and Finding Teddy.
They are available separately for €34.90 a piece, or as part of a five pack for €169.90. They also have Volgarr the Viking, which was released as a free download, but the license allows for commercial releases at a reasonable price. It’s available for €19.90 or as a 6 pack with the series 4 releases for €189.90.
