Dreamcast Version of Resident Evil: Code Veronica X Now in English!

Code Veronica X was the updated port of the original Dreamcast game released for the PS2 and GameCube by Capcom. They also released it for the Dreamcast in Japan only as Biohazard Code: Veronica Kanzenban.

The updated version of the game contained several new cutscenes spliced into the main story, along with several other minor gameplay changes.

Well, now you can play it from start to finish in English thanks to truemaster1 of the Assembler Games forum.

Head over to this thread, download the necessary files, and read the instructions thoroughly.

Yakuza 5 is Free with PS Plus header

Yakuza 5 is Free with PS Plus for August!

Great news if you’ve been putting off the last great American PS3 release! Yakuza 5 is free with PS Plus during the month of August!

That’s right! The game I thoroughly enjoyed can be yours for absolutely nothing if you are already subscribed to the service. All you need to do is dust off your PS3, make sure your controller is charged, and get ready for a great experience!

Is the game worth the trouble? Well, yeah! After all, I did sum up my review with the following passage:

If you needed a reason to either pull your PS3 back out or fire it back up, then Yakuza 5 is it. I don’t think I’ve ever played through a better crime drama in video game form. The fifth entry in the series is an intriguing thriller that keeps building until it’s climax and then leaves it’s players with plenty to do afterwards.

Normally, the game is priced at $39.99 for the digital download. Paying for even one month of PS Plus at $9.99 to grab and enjoy this wonderful game is a bargain! It’s most definitely capable of filling in your one month of service if you shoot for platinum!

25th anniversary of streets of rage header

25th Anniversary of Streets of Rage

Today marks the 25th anniversary of Streets of Rage‘s original release!

Bare Knuckle cover

Of course, the game was released originally in Japan as Bare Knuckle with this fantastic cover gracing it’s case.

Where were you when you first encountered Streets of Rage?

My Uncle was in his late teens while I was 9 years old in the fall of 1991. He had obtained a Sega Genesis fairly early and I always looked forward to trying the latest games out when we visited. It was at his house that I first experienced Altered Beast, Golden Axe, and many other classic Sega games.

Somehow the arcade games simply had not been available in my area, with mostly Capcom and Namco machines filling the spots in the entryways of grocery and corner stores. You know, the usual places a young man would find arcade cabinets in the late 1980s in rural America!

So it was on an all-too short visit to my Uncle’s house that I would first discover Streets of Rage. I recall having seen some coverage of it in magazines prior, but the printed page and text simply could not communicate the experience that this game offers.

As we all know, the game is great. A wonderful rival for Capcom’s Final Fight with aesthetics and a soundtrack that blows it’s competitor away.

How do you feel when reflecting on 25 years of pounding asses to thumping music?

I feel… wonderful!

I’m Back – Back and Ready!

It’s been roughly a month since my last upload of any kind due to real life commitments. Here’s a short video to announce my return!

New videos coming shortly. I’ve been mulling over how to break the seal on this return and decided to just make it happen! I hope some of you old farts get a kick out of Ray Wise or the Shinobi stuff.

See you again soon!
