So it’s the ninth of September, marking the 11th anniversary of the North American Dreamcast launch, and I’ve not done well with my goal from last September.
I had planned to, over the last year, finish up my Dreamcast backlog – that is, sit down with the curiously non-ergonomic controller in hand and slip GD-ROM after GD-ROM into the thing. I actually did get off to a decent start at this when I started – I played through three DC games in the space of a couple of weeks – but I fell off the horse fairly quickly, seduced away by more modern consoles.
The biggest problem, of course, is that the games I have remaining are fairly lengthy games, not knock-out-in-a-weekend sorts of things. As of this moment, I’m looking at having to play through all of these:
- Jet Grind Radio
- Record of Lodoss War
- Resident Evil: Code Veronica
- Shenmue II
- Skies of Arcadia
Six games, including two 40+ hour RPGs.
Oh, well, let’s give it another year. 🙂
