Found 8th Nov 2008
Thought I'd buy one earlier for some reason (from gamestation)and I am now wondering what games to get..

I am currently downloading Sonic Adventure ATM (I don't have any games with it) but I can't just play 1 game so what games do you lot reccomend?

Also anybody/anywhere cheap where I can get VMU's to save stuff too?

Really depends on what type of game you likes to play...my Dreamcast favourites were Metropolis Street Racer, Rush 2049, Capcom vs SNK, Shenmue, Crazy Taxi and Grandia 2.

I got a couple of controllers with VMU's from gamestation for £1.99 each. They usually have them tucked away in the back rather than taken valuable display space up so worth asking, same with original xbox controllers.

I'm guessing they are in the back then now as they had loads of PS2 and Dreamcast memory cards in a small cabinet right next to the tills acouple of weeks ago..

It's an RPG but not in a conventional sense as its very realistic, it won't have the impact it did originally with there being many open games but at the time the ability to go into most shops and buildings, play on arcades etc. was very impressive. In the game your Dad has been killed which you have to investigate to avenge his death, you control your character on a day to day basis (shops open and close, it gets dark etc.) going through the town to piece it all together.

You can also train martial arts through scrolls you find and much more! Highly recommended

It's kind of hard to simplify the game...the bit I remember most was getting my job as a forklift driver and earning trophies in the race before starting work each day

i remember doing it and it being fairly easy...

do you have a boot disc or is your dc modded?

The DC didn't need to be modded nor did it need a bootdisc, it could boot CD-Rs without issue.

Yes, the Dreamcast was rather infamous for its unsubtle disc grinding noises and at times noisy little fan.

John

Get Street Fighter III Third Strike.

Good recommendation, the DC was such a great console for 2D fighters.
