What does it say about me that the first thing I noticed about this photo was that these guys are playing a Dreamcast game?

I mean, it's great that they have visible abs, nice enough legs and an acceptable taste in underwear, but what I really want to see is: Which Dreamcast game are they playing?


I'm guessing it's something "typical" like SoulCaliber or Dead or Alive 2. They'd earn my undying respect, though, if it were ChuChu Rocket! or even one of the Power Stone titles.

That's a tough call...did ChuChu Rocket use the rumble pack? I'm going to go way out and put my money on Pen Pen TriIcelon.

By the way!! Sorry I never responded to your comment about the labels I was making a couple weeks ago, I didn't get a notification of it(or didn't see one--never really used blogspot for anything). To answer your question, I have indeed made more labels since Binary Land and I just started a new blog for them right here: http://simply-awful.blogspot.com Give it a look if you'd like to see more of my stuff, maybe you can be my first and only subscriber haha.

I never had a Dreamcast, but boy, those Powerstone games were fun! I think I was almost 17 already, the first time I played one (I had a sad gaming free childhood, except for playing adventure games at my father's office... and lots of solitaire and minesweeper.. *sigh*) - err, anyway. Hell yeah, I'd approve if those two were playing Powerstone! :>

I didn't even know there was a PSP port until I clicked on the Wikipedia link... let's see if it's available ont he Vita as well. :D

Let's say it's ChuChu Rocket. Swoon.

Hello again, Nightmare Bruce! I would say, yes, they're playing with the rumble pack. Or, well, they are in my mind :)

Pen Pen Tricelon! That's a surprising suggestion! Have you ever played it? I'm sad to say I haven't. Not sure why. I remember liking the looks of it back in the day, but I think it fell off my radar after initial reviews were kind of ho hum.

Thanks for letting me know about your new blog, by the way. I'll check it out as soon as I'm done responding to comments!

Oh, yes, miruki, I love the Powerstone games, too. I just noticed that I no longer have the original for some reason, so I guess I'll have to make my way over to eBay soon and pick it up.

As for the PSP port: I knew it existed, but I've never heard much about it. I wonder if it's any good?

Bryan Ochalla said...

Oh, Justin. We're often on the same wavelength, aren't we? :)

miruki said...

I'll let you know as soon as I get it, but I'll probably wait til next month, since I already spent so much money on clothes today *g*

I read it has some improvements, but I can't imagine it being as fun as playing against a friend on the Dreamcast. ;>

Bryan Ochalla said...

Oh, that's great, miruki! Honestly, I'd probably go with the original DC version no matter what, as I prefer playing games like this on a big screen, you know?

I have played PenPen! But not during the Dreamcast's day, I saw it and it didn't look like something that would be worth blowing 30 bucks on as a teenager. It's actually a really interesting and manic type of racing game with different play types and unique tracks (I like Horror Land best). It's an interesting look into what American cartoons would look like filtered through an already weird Japanese developer.

If you can find it cheap (and you probably can) I definitely recommend checking it out at least once just to see what they did. It's clunky but fun with two or more players. Most DC players probably know the game only from its bizarre cameo in Blue Stinger.

Thanks! I gather you're into ChuChu Rocket too so I think you'll get a kick out of my latest post.

The sad truth is they're probably not playing anything. Sob!

Bryan Ochalla said...

OK, Bruce, I'll try to locate a cheap copy of PenPen soon. My DC desperately needs a few more games, so why not go for a weird-but-fun one?

As for your latest post: I already say it. Amazing! Actually, all of the stuff I saw on your blog while scanning through it the other day looked amazing :)

Sadly, Anne, you're probably right :(
