Another New Game For Dreamcast?



The video above was made by PH3NOMDC and is a demonstration of bullet collision in his custom 3D engine.  In the video he is using a map from Quake 3's Total Conversion True Combat.  I had asked if he plans to release this for the Sega Dreamcast and low and behold I received a reply.



It seems we are finally on our way with receiving new 3D games for the Dreamcast.  Hopefully PH3NOMDC will allow others in the Dreamcast community to use the engine so we can see a large library of games.  Of course you can see his progress of his 3D engine for the Dreamcast at the following link.

Game Reviewify Classics: Dirt 2 (Windows PC)


On this episode of Game Reviewify we reviewify Dirt 2 for Windows PC.  Yes since its release there has been three Dirt games released which include Dirt 3, Dirt Showdown and Dirt Rally.  I had played the first Dirt which was pretty amazing and played like a lot of classic Rally racers.  Then of course Dirt 2 comes out and its not to bad but a lot of people complained about using real Rally Racers in the game.  That got fixed in Dirt 3 however they added Gymkhana and that got a black lash in that game.  Then of course Dirt Showdown got released to tell players that Gymkhana will be a spin-off series hense the release of Dirt Showdown.  Then Dirt Rally got released however its in its early stages and I don't have much information on this but its supposed be like the first game without Gymkhana and the usage of real Rally Racer influences in the game.

You can grab Dirt 2 at the following link for Windows PC and console:

Game Reviewify Classics: Test Drive Unlimited 2 (Windows PC)


On this episode of Game Reviewify I review Test Drive Unlimited 2 for Windows PC.  I know I said I enjoyed the game and to this day I still think its pretty good however yes there is a lot better games then this.  Of course even racers at that time period would kill this game.  I haven't played this game much since the review which kind of clarifies my point of view at this date and time.  However its good to give a go of you want to check out the awesome multiplayer community.

Android Isn't As Stable As I Thought


Alright i'm sure you guys had seen my post about Android x86 and how hyped I was about it. Today I don't feel as hyped as I ran into a problem which I can't even identify at this moment. I do have a few suggestions of what could have caused it to happen but they aren't even really definite ideas. I guess at this point I can't really say the OS stable enough to keep as a daily machine and I may have to go through some more tests just to see what the issue actually is.

Anyways I'm sure you all are dying to know what the problem was. Well you see that screenshot above well of course that won't show any definitive problem. But the actual problem is it won't get passed that screen and I was forced to reinstall the OS. Now of course this could be related to a few things. I had adblock installed on the OS which I use on web browsers so I don't see the ads on my blog so I don't run into any issues where I accidentally press one and get into loads of crap.

Well Adblock doesn't work to well with Android x86 and who knows if the software is buggy with other Android equipment. What ends up happening is web pages will no longer load and I guess the software just doesn't work. I ended up having to uninstall Adblock and everything worked again.

Next up I thought I'd give Kodi a try and while hardware encoding doesn't work and makes the software completely crash setting it to software encoding seems to solve the problem indefinitely. So of course I was able to watch a few things before passing out and going to sleep. Of course we know what happens when I wake up.

One other issue is the keyboard I'm using has a busted USB cable so at times it doesn't get read properly by the system. What ended up happening at boot it kept looping through trying to boot through the keyboard option. Of course I couldn't get to the logo or login. Rebooted the laptop and was finally presented with the Android logo which wouldn't boot to the login. I even tried pulling all devices out of the laptop to see if it was related to that and it wouldn't work.

I had also tested a command which was requested by Android x86 users. Change the following command from "androidboot.hardware=android_x86" to "androidboot.hardware=x86". However that didn't solve the problem either.

So all and all yes its not completely stable so be careful messing around with the operating system and time to do some more tests.

Game Reviewify Classics: Spiderman and Venum Maximum Carnage (Super Nint...


On this episode of The DCeric Show I show you Spiderman and Venom Maximum Carnage for the Super Nintendo.  To me this is hilarious considering Acclaim has been known for making bad games and Spiderman hasn't had a good game since the 90's.  Anyway's the Spiderman series has spawned sequels and spin off's for many consoles but the classics will forever been known.

Spiderman and Venom Maximum Carnage is available at the following link:
http://www.ebay.ca/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR11.TRC1.A0.H0.XSpiderman+and+Venom+Maximum+Carnage.TRS0&_nkw=Spiderman+and+Venom+Maximum+Carnage&_sacat=0

Android x86 on my Laptop


So for the longest time I have been waiting to take advantage of another OS one that of course has been made available thanks to the Open Source community brought to you by Chih-Wei Huang and his amazing team of engineers.  Of course the operating system does come with a lot of bugs and that is to be expected considering the OS is still in its early stages and is being ported from Android Tablets and Android Mobile Phones.

Of course the main issue here is that the operating system is being installed on a different architectural product that runs completely different then your average Android product. Some of the problems are that newer games have graphics that don't function properly cause perhaps that part hasn't been implemented yet or may work on different laptops.  This of course has happened with games like Beach Buggy Blitz where most of the textures were blacked out which of course made the game unplayable.

(Beach Buggy Blitz screenshot)
Of course you'll find other games look like they will work cause everything is intact except of course the mouse and keyboard controls which then make the games completely unplayable because they don't work at all.  Games like Temple Run 1 & 2, Paper Monsters, Sonic Dash and a few other select games have this issue.  Its quite sad cause everything is there and the games look like they would run at a decent framerate.  This I believe has been an issue with every release of the Android x86 system so far.  But hopefully with future progress of that issue will be fixed.

(Sonic Dash screenshot)

So as far as gaming goes there is still a few things that need work but progress is looking good for future use when demand for an easy on the go OS like Android will become more useful for people to use on their laptops or computers.  As far as the system goes it runs pretty good pretty much all apps that have come with the OS out of the box.  Sometimes an app may crash or the operating system itself will crash but this doesn't happen all the time.  Crashes seemed to happen for me when I tried to change the volume during game play and that would either crash the game or the system itself.

But needless to say that is pretty much the only time that had happened.  But again some apps aren't compatible with the OS and may crash.  Sometimes even though all graphics are in place there is artifacts now I'm not sure if this is related to over heating but something tells me its just an issue with the OS compatibility at this point of time.  I currently I don't have a screenshot of a game to show you this problem and can't remember any of the games that had the problem but this has happened to about 3 games I downloaded.

So as far as other hardware complaints the webcam seems to work but its upside down so that doesn't really make it good for a Skype conversation.

(a picture of myself with my awesome upside down webcam)

The mic works very horrible and I'm not sure if its cause the mic that is part of the machine is bad or its just badly implemented in the OS itself.  I did come across a small issue today where when I used the Chrome web browser flash crashed the web browser during flash game play.  I hadn't tested Youtube within the web browser to see if Flash is the full out issue or it was just the gameplay.  As for things like Facebook, Twitter etc. it works fine.

While some of the most advanced features may not be fully implemented for a web browsing experience you can get apps from Google Play that will solve that problem.  Apps for Facebook, Messaging services, Youtube etc. will solve the problem none the less.

There is of course one other issue and of course anybody that knows Android well enough some apps require being used vertically.  By that I mean the display for the game or app will be displayed vertical and the only way you can play is have your head tilted.  But of course there is some apps though available on Google Play that solve the issue for some games and apps while other games and apps it still doesn't fully solve the problem.

(Striker 1945 vertical gameplay using a screen orientation app)

One of the games I believe it worked for was one of the Striker 1945 games.  The reason why I believe it worked for that game is when you play the game in fullscreen it only takes advantage of the 4:3 layout of the screen.  Where that basically tells me the game when run in vertical view takes advantage of the fullscreen.  Now where games aren't completely compatible with the screen orientation they either ignore the option and go into vertical anyway's or gets so squished in widescreen you can't use any of the options to play the game.

Well with that being said that operating system I still think is great for people who need something small and want to have a little bit of their own "ME" time.  I'm simply amazed and enjoy the operating system even though there is the bugs I had mentioned.  Its still a pretty stable OS and should get better for future use.  If of course your not as advanced as me for installing an operating system you can download Bluestacks which is a Android emulator and will allow you to play tons of apps and games with little to no problems unlike the Android x86 OS.  But of course to enjoy Bluestacks fully you have to pay some money where Android x86 is completely free and for future usage should remain free for its lifetime. 

Now I will leave you with a few games that I had got working.  This of course isn't a full list there is tons of other awesome games but I don't have screenshots for them.  Anyway's for the games that do work they include Jetpack Joyride and Tom Hall's Cooking Dash 2016.  I will only say that Jetpack Joyride had one issue and that is when Google Play sign-in features get prompted it slows things down but that only happens at the beginning of the game so for the rest of the game it totally works out like it does on any Android product.  Cooking Dash 2016 I had no issue at all it plays flawlessly.

(Jetpack Joyride running on Android x86)

(Cooking Dash 2016 running on Android x86)

For those of you who want to give the operating system a spin and test it out on your laptop give it a go but hey don't blame me if it messes up your system read the documents and get some information which also located at the following site:

Game Reviewify Classic: Welcoming the Dreamcast SD Adapter


This was one of my favourite videos I did for the Sega Dreamcast which was kind of a trailer and introduction to the SD Adapter for the system.  The video was released on Game Reviewify then re-released the DCeric channel.  A lot of people have been having issues trying to find the SD Adapter but if you search real hard on Google you might be lucky.

Game Reviewify Classics: Jetmoto 2 (Playstation)


On this episode of The DCeric Show I show you Jet Moto 2 for the PSone.  Jet Moto 2 is bar far one of the greatest Jet Moto games in the series.  The only thing I think that sucks is that competition mode was removed and the greatest hits version only contains 4 players instead of 8 from the original Jet Moto 2.  Jet Moto 1 contains I believe 16 players in a race but I don't think it was that important.  Jet Moto 2 contains new tracks as well as all the tracks from Jet Moto 1 so you get a trilogy in one game pretty much.  Jet Moto 3 was then released and I didn't enjoy it the first time I played it but maybe my perception of the game might change at this point.... I don't know.

You can grab Jet Moto 2, Jet Moto and Jet Moto 3 from the following link and you can get the games from PSN:

Card Collection of the 90's




So I went through a card collection that I had as a young child from the 90's. I have lots of sports cards and lots of great ones but I didn't know I had gaming related cards as well as comic book related cards. Of course there is some pretty funny ones in there that as a child I only collected just to have them. I'm happy though that there is some Nintendo and WWF related ones in there. Anyways here is the collection enjoy them. The card above was the last one scanned I decided to throw in an old bookmark and an old Energizer magnet.

Unreal Engine 4 (demos)



I'm sure you have seen them scattered all across the web but incase you haven't here is some screenshots from the Unreal Engine demo's.  The reason why I did this was to see if my old Geforce 480 GTX could handle it.  The cave demo I got around 24 up to 50fps.  The rest were a lot better but as you can see from the photos the cave had a lot more flashy effects then what my 480 GTX could handle. Now if you like what you see you can get the demo's in one package from the following site.

The DCeric Show: Super Mario All-Stars (Super Nintendo)


Here is the first episode of The DCeric Show.  Of course I did it on Super Mario All-Stars one of my games for the Super Nintendo.  This of course was in my early stages of video game reviews and sounds a little bad but still watchable.  The problem is that when using Audacity I didn't think about doing line per line instead I recorded a full show doing one line and that is why there is a few screw ups.  Well none the less its not that bad a lot of people seemed to have enjoyed it and I hope you do to.

The DCeric Show Trailer (Final)


Here is the final complete trailer for The DCeric Show.  At some point i'd love to do another episode but I'm confused at this point if it would be a good idea.  The concept and ideas used for the show were great but I just found with what I'm doing currently is pretty easy and a better way to show people more information.

The DCeric Show trailer


This was a prototype trailer for my show on Youtube.  The font makes everything and this obviously didn't make the cut :).

Troy Re-released for Windows (update)


So I already posted this before but I had no clue he put the original Troy in the same location as Troy 2000.  James Saito made this for DOS back in 1996.  So the only other way to play this was using DOSbox. I made it so Dosbox is used as a front end but you won't have to do any commands.  You just open the game like any other Windows game or app and it will play as soon as you open it.  You can find the original Troy at the bottom of the page.

Troy for Windows features the following:

  • compatible with all versions of Windows 
  • compatible with the Xbox 360 controller
  • compatible with all monitors 
  • plays in 16:9 format but also should be compatible with 4:3
  • has a nice icon

Dreamcast SD Adapter Compatible: Linux Shuffle Lander


Linux Shuffle Lander was ported to Dreamcast by Indiket.  In this game you have to land your shuttle safely on the planet.  For some reason its as difficult as Linux Lunar Lander where you have to guide your shuttle safely to earth but for some reason as seen in the video it never works out well for me.

Dreamcast SD Adapter Compatible: Linux Lunar Lander


Linux Lunar Lander was ported to the Dreamcast by Indiket.  As you can see in the video I didn't make it safely to earth.  I don't know if this game is that hard but you have to make it to earth at a good and decent pace.

Dreamcast SD Adapter Compatible: Graf Orlocks Bat Hunt



Here is an old Dreamcast homebrew game created by OneThirsty8 called Garf Orlock's Bathunt.  I guess for its time you could have called this interesting and if i'm correct this game is a little buggy and not really that exciting. In the game you have to grab 10 bats once completed game over. Apparently though things can get a little tough cause if your not quick these bats will destroy you.  I believe the reason why the developer created this was for testing purposes.

Dreamcast SD Adapter Compatible: Space Dodger



Space Dodger was released in 2005 by Pineapple Soft.  I believe this is another game using the Fenix engine.  If I can remember I knocked this game when it got released and I think that offended the developer.  However if he ever sees this I would like to send my apologies.  I'm not a big fan of Fenix games but this game seems to at least try and is more playable then the others.  

Pineapple Soft's archived site with dead links: http://web.archive.org/web/20050507184151/http://pineapplesoft.xoopiter.com/
