Retro Diary – 23/9/12 – "HA! Beat THAT!"

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

Monday 17th September 2012

I’ve completed Sleeping Dogs today! It was an epic game! I really hope they make a sequel!

I got a 6-pack of AA Batteries because my TV remote needed new batteries as it wasn’t working, or so I thought, they don’t work, so that means the remote is broken, so I can’t play any console games until either the TV gets fixed, or I get a new one. The batteries I got came with a free download of the London 2012 game for the PC, well, a demo of the game, but you can only get it through getting the batteries, so I did that, gave it a shot, and I have to say, I wasn’t entirely impressed, the game seemed average.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD is now on PC!!!
Sure, it’s only a download game, sure, it’s a remix of an old game, and sure, the reviews aren’t brilliant, but it’s the first time in years a new Tony Hawk game has come on a platform that I have!
It’s been years since I’ve had that feeling of getting that new Tony Hawk game near Christmas time! Just to get that feeling again, I might just get it!

Before I write anything, Happy 5th Birthday Gamerstorm!

I’ve been trying out this thing called “Game Gain”, which is supposed to improve performance for your games, I’ve tried this before, on Stranglehold, but didn’t see any difference, but that was a bad game to test it on, as it ran on 60+fps normally. Since I have a lot more games that can’t run 60fps on high settings, I thought I’d try it out again, and I actually noticed a slight increase in performance, nothing major, but it’s impressive how they improved performance at all with the same specs as before.

My Copy of Space Station Silicon Valley for N64 has arrived, too bad I don’t have a working TV to use to play it, I ordered the game before I found that my TV is broken…

I’ve tried out the F1 2012 demo, because I found that along with FIFA and PES 2013, people were buying F1 2012, so I thought if there’s a demo, I’d try it out, I really enjoy Codemasters’ racing games, not just because you can select Scotland as your country, they’re genuinely fun games, and also I like F1, not the sport itself, as it more for the money, at least these days, but I have a lot of F1 games so I thought combing the two, it should be good.
Initially, at the country selection for your profile, it was at “United Kingdom”, I thought, “That sucks!”, but then I found you can still select the countries in the UK, so that’s good, but why anyone from the British Isles would choose the UK, which isn’t a country, over their actual country, is beyond me.
I’ve only tried the tutorial stages of the game so far, and first impressions are good, like all Codemasters games I’ve played on PC, it’s very well optimised, it can run 1080p on high settings on my PC easily, and the game itself is quite fun from what I’ve played.

As if by a miracle, my TV started working again! So I had a shot of Space Station Silicon Valley, and it’s great fun, but after seeing the first cutscenes, I had to make this!:

Saturday 22nd September 2012

Pro Evolution Soccer for PC has arrived today!

I’ve just opened up the box, and the manual and disc look really cool!:

The manual is also in full colour! Which I haven’t seen in years! It feels so good to not be reading in black and white:

I’ve played the game itself, and it’s the same fun game as last year only… the same, it controls and plays the exact same! Oh well, Hopefully next year’s game will be different/better with their new Fox Engine

Sunday 23rd September 2012

It’s PS2 week this week.

I played a couple of levels of Transformers until Giancarlo and/or Steven came in.

Then I played a couple of games with Giancarlo.

Then we played Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam.

Then we played a few fights of Mortal Kombat Armageddon.

Then we and Steven played a few games on Timesplitters 2, then me and Steven played two levels (Wild West & Atom Smasher) in Co-Op Mode.

Then we played 4, (yes, 4!) games of Horse in Shaun Palmer’s Pro Snowboarder, The first two Steven had won, then we decided to change the handicaps around (usually I’m set to lowest and he’s set to highest) and I won that time, so in the final match, we set both of our handicaps to +5, and it was good fun, we were both equally matched, I say that, I mean he still annihilated me… Although the horse name then was “YASSS”, making me a YASSS, YASSS!
It’s 17-8 to me, he’s catching up, I see this as good, I love a balanced battle.

After that, we had to go.

Next week is Xbox week.

Retro Diary – 16/9/12 – "Great shot, CPU! Oh, CPU, you idiot!"

Sunday, September 16th, 2012

Monday 10th September 2012

I was a G-Force after college today (No surprises there.), and I bought 3 Sega Saturn games, Sega Worldwide Soccer 97 and 98, and Virtua Fighter (1).

I saw a model 1 Mega Drive with a Mega CD attachment, it had no price tag, so I asked at the counter how much it was, and she said if it works (they had yet to test it), they said it might be £60 for both, which sounds really good. I liked it up on ebay, and to buy model 1 Mega CDs on their own on eBay costs £240! I’m getting that Mega CD out of G-Force as soon as I can! I know the guys won’t be interested in getting it before me, I trust you guys, but you’re wanting it, I’m not overly fussed, the race will be on!

I came home to be greeted by 2 parcels! One that looked like one that a strategy guide book would go in, and the other was actually pretty big, but it had Japanese writing on it, so I knew exactly what that was!

The guide was the Sleeping Dogs strategy guide that I ordered alongside the game, I only do that to games I really want.

The game was Digimon Tamers Battle Spirit 1.5 for the Wonderswan Colour, the box was actually taller than a Black & White Wonderswan game, it was actually the size I initially expected them to be, the rest of the box was just paper and bubble wrap, it seems the Japanese aren’t big fans of the environment.

I’ve played Battle Spirit, and it’s brilliant, even better than I hoped! Visually, it looks amazing, just like a GBA game!

Tuesday 11th September 2012

It’s worth mention first, R.I.P. to those who died in 9/11, it’s been 12 long years.

Remember when I said I saw a Model 1 Mega Drive+CD there and said it might be £60 once they’re ready to sell it? Well, I went back there today, and they had it for sale for £100, but it came with 2 6-button controllers and 3 games, technically 4! I was a bit sceptical at first, but they mentioned that they do a 3-month guarantee, which isn’t too much, but with an old console, you’d be lucky to have a guarantee on it at all, it also means if it breaks within those 3 months, you can take it back and get a refund, which sounds alright. They also mentioned that chances are, it’ll go in a couple of days, they rarely come by, hard and expensive to find on eBay, and it’s on high demand.

Believe it or not, £100 is a good price for a Mega CD, To buy one on it’s own, without the Mega Drive itself, any games, or controllers, would cost you a whopping £240! and that’s not including delivery! £100 doesn’t sound so bad now, does it?

So I decided to get it, if it doesn’t work, I could just take it back, so I might as well give it a try.

As I bought it, they were explaining to me some things I would need to know about the Mega CD, like that it uses it’s own power, that the reset button opens the tray and start closes it. I knew all of this, but it was awesome that this shop hires people who know what they’re talking about. Unlike a certain other store…

The console works perfectly, although the display is a little off, but it turns out it was the Mega Drive itself with that problem, because I get the same display quality when playing a cartridge game, which of course doesn’t require or involve the Mega CD.

The games I have for it at the moment aren’t that great, except for one, I got Prince of Persia, Jaguar XJ220, Cobra Command (Which, sadly, sucks! ='(), and Sol-Feace, which is actually pretty fun.

Now that I own a Mega CD, that opens doors for me to try out those really bad FMV games, like Night-Trap! I can only get Sonic CD, with the proper music the EU/JP version had, as opposed to the US one Gems Collection had.

I downloaded and tried out the FIFA 13 demo for the PC, I downloaded it from Origin, because, where else? The game’s just as fun as FIFA 12, maybe slightly better.

Wednesday 12th September 2012

I got Space Invaders for the PC today out of CEX, expecting it to be just like the PS1 version, only supporting bigger resolutions, sharper graphics and a much higher framerate, well, only 1 of the 4 are right…

Transformers for the PS2 arrived today, and it’s just as good as it was when I first played it years ago!

Friday 14th September 2012

Black Mesa is finally out!

I’ve been looking forward to it for years, and I’m not disappointed, it’s a great game!

Sunday 16th September 2012

It was a Mystery Console this week, I didn’t reveal it until my cousins had finished their lunch and came in, it was the Sega Dreamcast, to make up for thee fact we didn’t really play it last week.

Steven brought back my copy of Stranglehold that I let him steal, after he completed it.

Me and Steven started things off by playing Chu Chu Rocket!

Then we had a few games of Metropolis Street Racer, Steven and Giancarlo had a game as well. I changed my name from “CobrbDB”, which I probably put it there for a joke, the misspelling came from Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the Wii, to “Cobra!”. Steven changed his nickname from “Steven” to “CobrbDB”, which is practically his new nickname, and we changed Giancarlo’s name to “Ya555555555”, which is mostly what he uses these days.

Then me and Giancarlo played Virtua Fighter 3TB.

Then me and Steven had a game of Virtua Tennis.

Then we played Virtua Tennis 2, Giancarlo joined in after us realising you can have 3 players, the game was just pure madness! I think we have found our new favourite multiplayer game, at least on the Dreamcast!

Then me and Steven had a game of Horse on Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, we played on the Skatestreet level, the “horse” was “RJIBYAHHBZ”, Steven lost, with me having “RJIBY”, 15-5 to me!

Then we played Le Mans 24 Hours.

Then we played Sonic Adventure 2, our- well, my favourite! We had a race on the Go-Karting, which he won out of us 2. We had a couple of shooting battles, We both won 1, then we had a 2 races, again, we both had a win.

Then we played Ready 2 Rumble, our reality that live and Australia, and they were watching us play this, he loves to watch boxing, we had 2 game, I think we both won 1 game each.

At this point, we were aiming to have played all of the game we had, we almost done it before, but this time we had much more time, we it was possible.

Then we had a game of WWF Attitude.

Then we had a race of Sega Rally. Which I lost!

Then we played Sega GT.

Then we played Mortal Kombat Gold.

Then we played Re-Volt, we had a race, which he won, somehow…

Then we played NBA Showtime, we had no choice to play as a team, and we lost by 10 or so points…

Then we had a game of WWF Royal Rumble.

That was us played all of the games, so we celebrated by playing some more Virtua Tennis 2! We played doubles, both of us on separate teams, but most points were by either the CPU being good, or them making a stupid mistake!

It turned out that we missed a few games, we played some UFC, the graphics were fantastic for a Dreamcast game, it looked stunning, but the gameplay kind of sucked.

Then we played another horse game on Tony Hawk’s Skateboarding, this time, the “horse” was “GLQTEZWZY”, for some reason, we could change it this time, last time, we had to stick with “horse”.
Steven got GLQTEZWZY, but I ended up getting a G, was this the glimmer of hope Steven needed? Nope, He got a Y right afterwards, I win, 16-5!

Finally, we had a game of ECW Hardcore Revolution, which I won.

That was certainly an active week, next week is PS2 week, WWE All Stars time!

Retry Diary – 2/9/12 – "CobrbDB! My arch nemises!"

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

Monday 27th August 2012

YES!!!! For years, I wanted this handheld system called the “Wonderswan”, or more specifically, the “Swan Crystal”, because that’s the last in the line of Wonderswans, so I can play all wonderswan games, that and it has the clearest and best screen.

I ordered (Kaze no) Klonoa: Moonlight Museum for the Wonderswan a few days ago, I forgot exactly when, because I am a huge fan of Klonoa, and this game was rarely comes by, but I found an item on eBay, and got it, despite not having a Wonderswan, that is until now.
I saw a Swan Crystal in eBay yesterday, in that “Crystal Blue” colour I wanted, it was £50, so I made an offer yesterday of £40, and they accepted!

Like I said, I wanted a Swan Crystal for years, but never found one until now, I guess it’s true when they say good things come to those who wait…

Wednesday 29th August 2012

Nothing of note really happened on Tuesday, so I’m skipping to Wednesday.

My and my brother played a few games (or “Duels” as the game calls it) of Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, 4 games to be exact, and I lost all 4, 2 of the games my brother went on medium while I went on easy, he still beat me…

I tried out both the Driver and Dri3r demos on PC, Driver 1 ran great, even on high settings, although coming from a 13 year old game (Jeez! Is it that old!?), I didn’t expect any less!

Before I get to the Driv3r PC demo, I have and played the PS2 version, and also played the Xbox version, the PS2 version had a choppy framerate it ran awful! The Xbox version ran more-a-less the same from recollection, maybe a bit better.

I was worried that perhaps this was one of those games that ran at this same framerate regardless of the hardware you’re using or what your settings are, like Reservoir Dogs or 007 Quantum of Solace.

Luckily, it wasn’t, and it ran beautifully on PC, bye bye Choppiness!

Friday 31st August 2012

I think I have become addicted to GTA IV, because I’ve noticed that that’s all I’ve been playing, and according to Raptr, when I play it, every time it’s for at least 2 hours straight! Who cares, though, it’s a great game!

I am officially done with Nightfire for the PC, not because I’ve completed it, but because for some reason, at this one level (Elevator Action), it’s become so buggy and laggy, that’s it’s unplayable, seriously! I don’t even know how they managed that, since it’s all the same engine, it should stay the same for the whole game, but apparently not.

Before this level, it was functional, maybe boring at some parts, and the levels drag on, but it was fine.
However, once I reached this level, it was full of bugs!

For starters, it didn’t auto-save once the level started, like the other levels, which was strange, but that’s only the icing on the cake. Sometimes I couldn’t move, the mouse lags, the aiming sometimes lags, and what I mean by that is that it constantly switched from zoomed in to normal, the camera does a similar thing, for one frame or so aims the opposite direction, some enemies at some times are you can’t kill, even if they’re in a wide open space, not behind anything, and you’re pumping mountains of bullets into them.
Worst of all, and I know this for a fact that’s it’s unbeatable, there was a part I was stuck at for ages, I consulted the trusty Strategy Guide, and it said I was to use the grappling hook, but guess what… you have no grappling hook! I read back to see if I missed a part where I was to get it, but nope, it didn’t mention it until that point…

That’s f*cked up! Did EA even play test this level!? Probably not, because hiring play testers would’ve involved EA spending money…

There are even several patches to the game, but none of them bothered to fix this problem!

Like I said, the rest of the game is fine, so why suddenly now does it glitch out on me.

Saturday 1st September 2012

My Klonoa: Moonlight Museum game arrived today!

Since it was from America, it came in one of those US parcels, I thought it looked cool, since we obviously don’t get them here in Scotland. So I took a photo, here it is:

One thing I have to say about the game, or rather the box itself is…. it’s tiny! I expected the box to be a taller version of the Game Boy and Game Boy Colour boxes! Here’s a size comparison:

See what I mean?

Unfortunately, I still haven’t got my Wonderswan (otherwise I would’ve mentioned.), so I can’t try it out…

Sunday 2nd September 2012

I decided to bring the N64 over the Dreamcast (I was struggling to choose between the two) to gran’s this week.

I was going to show my cousins my Wonderswan, but it hadn’t arrived, but as mentioned earlier, a game I ordered alongside it did, so I just brought that and showed them that.

I mentioned also about the US parcel, and me and Gaincarlo had a little interesting conversation about, you could say, Exotic parcels? Well, he mentioned he ordered a Zelda: Minish cap off of eBay, and the seller was from Hong Kong, so his parcel was has a lot of Cantonese writing. I kind of hope my Wonderswan will come in a parcel that’s got Japanese writing on it, being that it’s from Japan, it probably will.

I played a mission on Mission Impossible.

Then me and Steven played WWF Attitude, had a few games, funny to play as always.

Then we played Goldenwhy! (Goldeneye), we had 2 games of that, I won 1, and he won the other.

Then Giancarlo joined in to play Perfect Dark with us, we had a few games of this, I was played a guard with Shigeru Miyamoto’s head! Steven took the alias as “CobrbDB” referencing a typo I once made in a game, although I forgot which, maybe Steven could tell me… Throughout the time we were playing, he got the most kills, so I declared CobrbDB as my nemesis!

Then me and Steven played Riiiiiidge Racer 64, then after a few races, Giancarlo joined in.

Then me and Steven played Tony Hawk’s Skateboarding for the N64, we had a game of horse! Instead of horse, though, it was “EQUSFEZAA”! I won the match, but he did manage to get a letter or two out of me, and he said that was enough for him! Fair enough, it also made the game look less one sided. Even at that, it’s 14-5 to me now, the whole thing looks one-sided, and I’ll be honest, I don’t like that, I hope Steven steps up his game and gets himself a few wins, maybe we’ll play the games he’s good at…

Then finally, we played the Pokémon Stadium mini games, it was first to 5 wins, and he won…

That’s it for this week, next week we’re back on schedule, it’s PS2 week!

Retro Diary – 12/8/12 – My birthday week

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

Monday 6th August 2012

I saw the Dark Knight Rises today, and it was brilliant, it’s my favourite film this year, and seeing how brilliant all the other films I’ve seen that came out this year, it’s saying a lot!

I’ve downloaded the Batman Arkham Asylum Demo today, but at first, it didn’t work, but I manually installed a patch for it, and it worked just fine, and I loved the demo, I am without a doubt getting the full game as soon as I can, preferably the Game of The Year Edition!

Tuesday 7th August 2012

I’ve finished Stranglehold today, and what an epic game it was! As I keep telling you…

Wednesday 8th August 2012

I went to a Basketball summer training camp with my friend, Jamie, or “Midfield Maestro”, as he likes to call himself. I’m mentioning this because he’s staying with me for 2 nights after that, when we got home, the first thing we did was play FIFA 12 on the PC, the second thing we did… was play more FIFA 12! Then we played PES 2012 on PC. Then FIFA. Then Fronte Del Basket 2, Then FIFA 12, then NBA 2k12, which he somehow beat me at, his big ego never shuts up about it, then FIFA 12, then we watched some videos, and finally, some FIFA 12! Finally, we watched some Fawlty Towers.

Thursday 9th August 2012

Both me and Jamie watched some Spongebob Squarepants, just thought I’d tell you that.

We played FIFA 12 all morning, then one of my old friends came up, it’s been years since I’ve seen him, and he hasn’t changed one bit! For this purposes of the blog, and since I don’t have permission to use his real name, I’m going to call him “Rydo”.

The three of us played FIFA 12 and PES 2012 on PC for most of the day, then my cousins came along, and we played a bunch of games, I forgot the order we played them and we played some of them at the same time, a couple played one, while the rest played another, here’s what we played:

  • Metropolis Street Racer [DC]
  • Mashed: Fully Loaded [Xbox]
  • The Sims 3 [PC]
  • Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 [GC]
  • FIFA 12 [PS2 & PC]
  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 [PS2 & PC]
  • Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater [N-Gage]

I got a lot of Birthday money today! As well as that, my cousin, Giancarlo, gave me a couple of games he got from CEX, I got The Broken Sword Trilogy on PC and From Russia with Love for PS2.

My mum got my birthday cake, she showed it to me, at first, I expected, since I was 18, it would be about some rubbish about beer/alcohol, even though I’ll never drink, I hate the idea. However, it turned out it was a cake modelled into a PS1! Brilliant!

Friday 10th August 2012

It’s my birthday!!!!!!

My mum said she would give me my “Main” present early, it was a 160GB Ipod Classic! I always wanted one of them! What has it got to do with this blog? Who cares!

I got an Atari Flashback 3, what that is, click here.

I got a whole bunch of games and Sims 3 expansion packs, which are:

  • TimeShift [PC]
  • Grand Theft Auto IV [PC/Games for Windows]
  • Dead Rising 2 [PC/Games for Windows]
  • Strong Bad’s Cool game for Attractive People [PC]
  • Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures [PC]
  • Sims 3 World Adventures [PC]
  • Sims 3 Late Night [PC]
  • Sims 3 Generations [PC]

I’ve been playing them pretty much all day.

Sunday 12th August 2012

Instead of going to grans this week, since she was at England, along with my cousin, Giancarlo and his family, to watch the closing Olympic ceremony, my cousins came to our house for a barbecue, a perfect opportunity to play some games with Steven, and anyone else who might want to play games.

We played some Atari 2600/Flashback 3 games first, Starting with Combat, then Sprint Master, and finally Maze Craze.

Then we played WWE All Stars for the PS2, we played a few games.

Then we played a 10 minute game of Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64, then unfortunately Steven had to go, he wasn’t there for long…

Before he left, I gave him a lend of both Stanglehold and Blood Stone 007, since they were DRM-Free (Well, DRM in the anti-used game sense.) and I completed them, he said he had always wanted to play Blood Stone, but was waiting for a Steam sale (All digital gamers are the same!), so I gave him a retail copy to borrow!

Next week we’ll be back at grans, instead of doing PS2 week, I’m brining a mystery console, I haven’t decided on what it is yet, so as of now, even I don’t know what it is!

Retro Diary – 5/8/12 – "Sega of Antartica!?"

Sunday, August 5th, 2012

Monday 30th June 2012

I’ve downloaded the TimeShift demo last week, and it didn’t work, no matter what I did, it turns out that it’s because my CPU is quad-core, the game was designed for Single and Dual-Core, and the company that made the game went bust, so there is no fix as of yet, I’m going to find a way to run my CPU on 1 or 2 cores to get this game running.

At that time, I cancelled the order for the full game, but just today, the idiots sellers dispatched it, they should have been checking their inboxes…

Tuesday 31st July 2012

Since it’s Dreamcast week this week, I decided to play a game on said console right now to make sure it’s in full working order, so I popped in Metropolis Street Racer and had a game or two on it, and the Dreamcast was working perfectly fine, thankfully. (Touchwood.)

Me and my brother watched Batman Begins on Blu-Ray, never seen it before, but I’ve seen The Dark Knight, and Batman Begins was brilliant, in fact I thought this was better, but that’s just me, everyone else seems to beg to differ.

Thursday 2nd August 2012

I finally got the TimeShift demo to work! Although if I wanted to play the game now, every time I do, I have to change my CPU to run on single or dual-core, reset my PC to make the changes, play the game, make the CPU run on all cores again, and reset again, it seems like a lot of hassle for just one game, I’m trying to find a better solution.

I watched a bit of The Dark Knight on Blue_Ray with my brother, but I wanted to go to bed about half-way though, seriously, that film is way too long!

Friday 3rd August 2012

I was going to see the Dark Knight Rises in theatres today, but me and my brother had a row (that he started, honestly), over a stupid sock, sound ridiculous, right? Well, tell my brother that…

I asked about the TimeShift situation on Yahoo! Answers, and I only got one answer saying that the method I did was the only way to get it to run, but mentions that the game is worth it, I decided that I’d only play it then if there’s nothing else to play… then I realised that, that’s kind of what happening right now, I want to play something, but don’t have a game at my disposal to play, except maybe Stranglehold, but that didn’t occur to me at the time, so I decided to set my CPU to dual-core, reset my PC, and played through the demo, and holy sh*t, was it awesome! I might go as far as to say it’s one of the best FPSes I’ve ever played! Seriously! I’m glad that full game has been dispatched, and arrived!

I played a bit of Soldier of Fortune on the Dreamcast, again, to check if it’s functioning properly, and it still is!

I found out that Telltale games made a game based on Wallace and Gromit called “Wallace & Gromit: Grand Adventures” and, like most TellTale games, had a compilation of all episodes (Yes, all 4!) on a physical DVD, so I decided to try out the demo of episode 1 before I get the full game(s?), and like all TellTale games, it was brilliant, so I’ll be getting it for my birthday!

I’ve decided to watch the rest of The Dark Knight, and it was just as awesome as the first time I watched it! While I was watching it, I thought I wouldn’t make through the rest of the film in one sitting and that very soon I was going to turn it off for another time, but nope, I sat still, and watched it.

Saturday 4th August 2012

I tried out the demo for Batman: Arkam City for the PC, just to see how it ran because according to both Game Debate and Canyourunit, I don’t meet the recommended requirements and wouldn’t be able to run the game on high settings, I put all setting on high, and it ran just fine! In fact at some points it goes up to 60fps! Maybe my CPU and RAM make up for the graphics card… ?

I played a bit of Le Mans 24 Hours to check if my Dreamcast was still in full working order, so I did a simple 3 lap race, which lasts about 10 minutes, and it was working perfectly fine the whole way though!

Sunday 5th August 2012

It’s Dreamcast week this week, however, for most of the time, we were just watching the Olympics.

I played a bit of Shenmue II, progressed a tiny bit further, as in I now know what to do and where to go, hopefully I won’t forget that, because I don’t play it often.

Me and Giancarlo played a few races of Metropolis Street Racer.

Then we played a game of Ready 2 Rumble Boxing, which I surprisingly dominated, only got knocked down once, whereas he got knocked down constantly.

Then me and Steven played Metropolis Street Racer we played a few normal races, then we had a shot at “Pursuit”, where within a time limit, one player has to catch up with the other, I was the one running away, and he was to catch me, and I lost…

The we had a few games at the Kart races on Sonic Adventure 2, then a few Sonic/Shadow action stages, then we decided to give the Dreamcast a rest, as it was getting too hot.

As we were playing those game, I mentioned to them, that apparently there exists a Sega of Antarctica, no, you did not misread that, I mean that continent at the bottom of the world that has virtually no population.

There’s no website about them, but they are a few articles floating around recently about them addressing a rumour around SA3.
It’s probably fake, I mean obviously they wouldn’t gain anything from having a division in Antarctica, but I’ll probably pretend it’s real for a joke.

After the Dreamcast got it’s “rest”, all 3 of us had a few games of Chu Chu Rocket.

After that, Steven had to leave. Then me and Giancarlo played Virtua Fighter 3 TB.

Then finally, we played Re-Volt, we had 2 races, I won one race, he won the other.

Next week is PS2 week, what games do I have that we play on PS2?… Oh yeah, WWE All Stars!
