Instead of filling our site with the usual tedious drivel about the pre-Christmas releases - you can find that stuff ANYWHERE, and not one of us has played Black Ops 2 or Assassin’s Creed 3 - we’re going to fill our site with stuff that really matters this Christmas.
The true meaning of Christmas.
We’re going to bring people together from all over the videogames world and give out gifts to you, our readers, in the form of excellent content, all in the name of our Lord and Saviour that died for our sins (of annual sports games) - the Sega Dreamcast.
An amazing thing about this whole #DCember thing is that out of every single person we asked to contribute, or those who offered, not one person suggested the same game or thing about the Dreamcast as another. Everyone has their own unique attachment to this amazing console. Could it be one of the many awful but absolutely hilarious survival games? The devil-may-care approach to imports, and subsequently piracy? The best collection of fighting games ever assembled? Some of the bizarre peripherals, and the even weirder games that used them? The fact that a cynical, yearly sports game cash-in didn’t get anywhere near it? Or, just fucking SHENMUE? Our assembled squad of Dreamcast lovers are going to tell you what makes it such a rad machine.
As well as plenty of writers, we’ve also convinced photographers, video producers and even an indie dev to contribute in their own way to this. We’ve not set any guidelines outside of ‘it has to be about something Dreamcast’ and ‘no racism’, so expect all sorts over the next month. We will probably be throwing up one piece per day, so keep an eye on our ridiculous Twitter for updates.
It’s our very own Dreamcast-themed nativity! We’re all Kings, with gifts for YOU, our readers, as you lie naked, shivering in your mangers this #DCember.
