    The Dreamcast is a very beautiful console. I miss my old one very much.

    The Dreamcast was just ahead of it's time that's all. Kind of like Van Gogh.

    Just yesterday, I found the will to install and try NullDC on my newish laptop to see how more recent builds perform on my hardware.
    It was a blast.....60fps all the way with almost everything I tried, near perfect video rendering, only some minor shadow issues here and there, but on the plus side, the games are rendered in HD and I managed to configure my xbox 360 controller to play it.. which is an amazing feat, as I must admit, as much as I love my DC , the controller is pretty crappy, especially the analog stick...

    So yes, the Dreamcast lives on, I'm having so much fun today to play it, as 10 years ago when it was brand new and the most powerful system out there !
    I whish I had the space to hook it up on my TV, but frankly, between the inconvenience of the cables,vgabox, inferior controller and a dodgy disc drive laser, I'll have to stick with emulation for the time being.

    Thank you for not being grammar Nazi's with my post and pointing out my mistakes.

    Also, spare a thought for the Vita...even in this thread people don't want want talk about it.

    Same here.

    I'm starting to save for the Vita but, if it's another console with a short lifetime, I don't know what i'll do, I mean. The Dreamcast died out once the PS2 was made, didn't it?

    Although TBH people really jerk off over the Dreamcast now.

    It's also, in retrospect, regarded as ahead of its time and as a "hidden gem" of a system.

    But I'm not a hipster cunt so I just want my Vita to be like my PSP.

    The Vita can only wish to sell as well as the Dreamcast. ;o;

    PS Mortis.

    No.

    Mortis is the wrong declination of the noun. If anything, you're interested in the Nominative Singular form, which is Mors. Mortis is Genetive Singular, which answers the question "Whose?", so Mortis is "Death's", "Of Death" or "Belonging to Death" (or corpse's, or annihilation's). Alternatively, Mortis could be Accusative Plural, but let's not get into the fun details.

    It's not funny when your witticism is incorrect. http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/mors#Latin
