While it’s been possible for a while to get Sonic Adventure DX on Steam, it’s not necessarily the best versions of the game to get. To be more specific, it has problems like there being borders around the game and it having a low screen resolution. Which might have something to do with it being a port of the XBLA version, which was a port of the previous PC version, which was a port of the Gamecube version, which was a port of the Dreamcast version. So yeah, it could do with some improvements.
And it might finally get them, as SEGA announced today in a Steam forum post that they’re working on improving these Dreamcast Collection games over the next few months three years after they’ve been released. Among these improvements are added achievements, which can already be seen on the store pages of the games. Hopes up that this also means that they’ll finally add the Bad Religion back into Crazy Taxi.
Dangit, and just now i finished this game with all 130 emblems on steam.
I’m always raring to play a SONIC game and I can’t wait to exp. this updated version of 1 of my FAVORITE SONIC games 🙂 thank-you SEGA for caring
Is the XBLA version getting these achievements too?
It’s had them from the beginning. Achievements are a requirement for Xbox 360/XBLA games.
>Hopes up that this also means that they’ll finally add the Bad Religion back into Crazy Taxi.
I hope that happens too, it’s hard to play Crazy Taxi without hearing YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH
In addition to achievements I’ll assume this means:
* Everything goes up to supporting 1080p res
* Crazy Taxi has analog control done correctly
* Crazy Taxi has all its original music (this is true for the phone port, no?)
* SADX is no longer just upscaled 640×480
* SADX super ring powerup textures no longer misaligned
* That One Texture in Windy Valley works again
UNLIKELY BUT DANG IF I WOULDN’T WANT THESE:
* SADX has gouraud shading so, say, Sky Deck has the effects from the DC version
* Chao Garden restores chao missing here from 2004 ver, allows multi-chao racing
And, hopefully, widescreen…
They could update Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 while at it.
Trading cards please.
I meant the new achievements -_-
There are no new achievements, the Steam achievements are the same as the achievements of the XBLA version.
Who cares about bad religion!
The Offspring is what’s iconic about Crazy Taxi! They need to add ALL the music from the original version back.
