  • Dreamcast is known for having the best port of the game. If you already own it and couldn’t use your PS3/PS4 stick with it now you can with the new Brook converter.
  • There have been several videos this week about early previews of 30th anniversary. There were many concerns about game speed in all those videos and the lack of training mode.
