Dreamcasting Ikaruga

Ikaruga is perhaps my favorite shooter of all time. I own an original Japanese copy of the game for the Dreamcast.

It’s rare. Like hundreds of dollars on eBay rare.

Years ago, in a fit of madness I sold my used Dreamcast on eBay but kept Ikaruga. My original intention was to create an arcade cabinet, but I just didn’t have the room. I do now.

Well, today is a new day. I just bought a BRAND NEW Dreamcast from Thinkgeek for $100!


  1. So tempted, but I don’t want to repurchase all my old Dreamcast games.

    Fortunately, the best games I played are mostly out as Gamecube, X-Box, or X-Box Live Arcade games. Too bad the Gundam: Rise From the Ashes game was never ported.

  2. Nice. I still have about 3-4 Dreamcast units (I’ve found a lot at garage sales for peanuts) and a stack of games. The only thing I never got was the light-gun. I do have the fishing rod though!

  3. That fishing rod always cracked me up. I don’t get plain-old fishing, so video game fishing baffles me.

    So Nat, are you building that arcade cabinet now?


  1. […] had previously mentioned that I was able to pick up a newly sealed Dreamcast from Thinkgeek last week. I wanted to share with you, fine readers, what you may have missed almost ten years […]
