My Dreamcast died. Won’t boot. Tried everything I could find online and it’s a no-go. This means that I now can’t play Metropolis Street Racer – the best console racing game of it’s time. A game that was superb in every respect and which M$ then bastardised for the inferior PGR/PGR2. So that was one bad thing.
Then the PS2 finally died. It’s been groaning and grinding recently, but with patience it would boot. The gameplay / sound effects were skipping a lot but some games (like Tempest) were perfectly playable. But it too has whirred it’s last.
Two consoles gone .. add into that a headache from hell most of the day and it’s not been the best recently. Now I’ve got to talk J into the purchase of a new PS2 and I can’t see how I can right now….
