SEGA’s most iconic console has turned 30 years old this year. With that comes their Mini console that celebrates the legacy of the hardware. Myself along with Neo Hazard will be dual streaming the device on Sunday at 7PM Central, 12AM GMT. We’ll check out Retro-bit’s 6-button controller compatibility, check out the region swap feature and test other functionality to see how it stacks up with the competition.

Cure Your Dreamcast Hangover With This Look Back on Sonic Adventure’s 20th Anniversary

You might’ve heard about a certain console’s 20th Anniversary (in the United States, yes yes we know.) And like the rest of us, you might’ve busted out your own beige white box to play some of SEGA’s final games as a console company. We here at Retro have many different opinions about Sonic Adventure, but deep down, I think we all still love it in some way, shape, or forum. We’re not alone either! One of our own front page writers, MykonosFan, has put together a loving tribute about why he loves the first big, 3D outing. Give it a watch and remember, yes, the Dreamcast was always that loud.
