I wish I could say I was cool and had one
but I didn’t
Love the hyrogliphics
excuse any misspelling please, late and tired
Happy 9th birthday, Dreamcast.
May you rest in peace. u.u
Happy Birthday, Dreamcast. I miss you. May Sega honor you in the future with proper sequels.
I recognize Soul Calibur on the upper part of the hieroglyphs (which is strange seeing how that is the most recent design of the blade and it didn’t look like that back then), and Super Monkey Ball on the left. The car and the angler I don’t recognize, and the prayer is referencing Skies of Arcadia and Daytona USA.
Car = crazy taxi. Angler = Seaman.
The car is Crazy Taxi, still much-beloved even after Dreamcast’s death.
The fish is the weird and innovative Seaman, where you literally play a man-faced fish. Slightly Sporelike actually, to put it into perspective.
I’m just glad he mentioned Skies of Arcadia.
the angler is seaman
The fish on the top right is Seaman, the car on the bottom is Crazy Taxi.
The hieroglyphics are great. Soul Calibur didn’t look like that until Soul Calibur IV was released in July, though. You’d think hieroglyphics would be more outdated.
That’s funny, I didn’t recognize Soul Calibur, and I didn’t even think of Super Monkey Ball for the far left, but I think I recognize the taxi and the fish. As far as I can tell, they’re Crazy Taxi and Seaman, respectively.
Also, great comic — but that’s no surprise.
If there is a Dreamcast 2: Electric Boogaloo that hits on 9/9/09 I will buy it even if it is complete rubbish. This is how much I trust you, Dreamcast.
The fish in the upper right is from the game “Seaman.” The thing in front of the fish is the peripheral that was used to play the game, which was a microphone. It was a pretty quirky game for the Dreamcast, which makes it all the more tragic since Sega probably wouldn’t dare make a new IP like that ever again. However, there apparently was a sequel being developed for the PS2, which hasn’t been brought up in a while. It’s probably vaporware by now.
Oh, and the thing in the center is from Crazy Taxi.
Third post, sorry about that. Seaman 2 came out back in 07. Oh Sega, why do you do this to us?
I think the angler is in reference to Seaman, and the car refers to Crazy Taxi.
The car is Crazy Taxi.
Is that a Game Gear? I miss those more than the Dreamcast.
it looks more like sega’s nomad (portable genesis/megadrive)
Ah the Sega Nomad, yet another forgotten denizen of the video game land.
It can’t be a Game Gear – too many buttons. It could be a Nomad though. I don’t know of any other portable with six buttons on the front.
Actually, it’s a Nomad.
I think it be a Sega Nomad vidcon.
Looks like a nomad (portable genesis/mega drive)
Never will I forget…good night, sweet prince.
DC, the console that was killed by hype.
It’s a sega nomad.
its a sega nomad. portable Gensis.
Its a Nomad.
It’s the Sega Nomad.
AKA the portable Genesis.
The Game Gear only really had two buttons, IIRC.
It’s a SEGA Nomad, the portable handheld that played Genesis games. The most brilliant part of the comic! A wandering Nomad, dedicated to a fallen prince.
It’s a sega Nomad Silly… and he is a Nomad… get it?
No it’s a Nomad – the Megadrive/Genesis portable… very clever.
HEY GUYS, I WONDER WHAT THAT FISH IS DUH DUH DUH. COULD SOMEONE EXPLAIN IT FOR ME?
I think the Handheld visiting the dreamcast might be that 20-1 portable mega-drive Tectoy recently released in Brazil…
Is the heiroglyphic on the left really of Monkey Ball? Didn’t it first come out on the Gamecube?
Great comic though!
The car is from Crazy Taxi, the angler is from Seaman.
…I wanted to memorize it.
Okay, we get it! It’s a Nomad, Crazy Taxi and Seamen. Good lord….
Looks like comment moderating means any question will be answered thirty times before anybody realizes it’s been answered even once.
It actually debuted in arcades, but yeah it moved to consoles on the GC. I can’t actually find ANYTHING linking SMB to the DC… the heck?
Do we have the wrong game?
a truly bittersweet memorial.
There was never a Super Monkey Ball for the Dreamcast.
Super Monkey Ball first debuted in arcades, and Dreamcast was considered an “arcade console”. So maybe that has something to do with it.
I’m guessing it would be too much of a stretch to say that the one on the left might be Sonic?
Well, maybe I got SMB wrong but I looks like a helmeted monkey in a ball.
I can’t imagine it being anything other than a monkey ball, but it makes it or Soul Calibur the odd man out. Because Soul Calibur is not made by Sega but was a Dreamcast staple, and SMB was made by Sega but never appeared on the Dreamcast…
@Channing – YES!
yes indeed nomad, daytona let’s go away
Guys it’s a Sega Nomad. The car is from Crazy Taxi and the angler is from Seaman.
completely awesome guys! we’ll never forget you dreamcast =’(
I had one briefly. My friend gave me his. That was my first time with Soul Calibur.
What, no reference to Jet Set Radio?
I wonder what he meant by “Daytonia, may we go away….”?
I know that its a reference to Daytona USA but that sentence sound incomprehensible.
I thought the sword was a granasaber from Grandia 2
This one still gets me, even after all these years.
