Hey Mom, I want Mortal Kombat for X-Mas!!!

/ 9 years ago

Oh the joy of Christmas! You wake up, run downstairs and see ALL those gifts! You run back up and wake up mom and dad with a series of “MOM MOM MOM MOM!!!!!!!1111”. Your parents saunter down the stairs like zombies and will not let the gift opening commence until they have their coffee. You sit their like a crack addict rocking back and forth, looking at the gifts just HOPING that game you wanted is under the tree. You FINALLY get to open gifts and…

A Tiger handheld?!!! Your parents look on with smiles thinking they got you EXACTLY what you wanted and their faces soon drop as they notice you are not happy. Yeah, good old Tiger electronics!

Altered Beast (Tiger Handheld)

I think they made one of these crappy handhelds for every popular game. Altered Beast being one of my favorite Genesis games, not so much in Tiger form (the handheld, not meaning when you turn into a tiger).

Sonic 2 (Tiger Handheld)

Even Sonic was not safe! Looks like Sega was fine whoring out their property to Tiger to make these games (which were all pretty much the same game play with slightly different layouts) but Nintendo never gave rights to their properties…

Double Dragon II (Tiger Handheld)

Nintendo game? Yes, but this is a Konami game. I am guessing Nintendo itself would not give the rights to Tiger to put out Mario and Zelda games like this since they had the Game & Watch series which was pretty much the same kind of games.

With the memorable release date of 9/9/99 the Dreamcast hit store shelves in the USA. I remember there was quite a bit of buzz about it and could not wait to get my hands on one! I remember walking through the perfume wreaked halls of the local Macy’s to play the Dreamcast demo unit that they had on display.

It was a smaller counter top version than the one above and I would make sure to go into Macy’s every time I hit up the mall until release. I remember me and my older brother got the Dreamcast as a VERY early Christmas gift. We would usually ask for one big gift each year with Dreamcast being one, Snes being another, and Turbo Grafx 16 being the other system that I can remember getting.

Sonic Adventures was and still is an excellent game. Anyone that had a Dreamcast knows this, but my favorite game was BLUE STINGER!

Blue Stinger was a 3rd person sci-fi game that looked BEAUTIFUL for it’s time!

Other Dreamcast items of interest I found:

The Resident Evil system! Sega put out ALOT of different Dreamcast consoles (mostly in Japan of course) but this one hit shores here as well. Thing that sucks is that most Dreamcast variants were just a different color and a different box just as this one is. I wanted it back then since I am a huge RE fan but looking back, I see that it was nothing special.

A decent lot for sale. Price is not bad but game selection is a little lacking but at least it has Sonic Adventures and Crazy Taxi 1 & 2!

A cheap system posted up. Looks like you can get them pretty cheap on eBay if your just looking for a system with a game or 2.

Oddball Auctions:

Ok, I found 1 Dreamcast item that I did not know existed until today (since it is a JP exclusive that’s not surprising) and thought it was hilarious!

Yeah! Karaoke adapter! I just read up that the unit used to use some dial up service (that was in Japan only and is long dead) to get the songs but from what I read it seems like it doesn’t store the songs or come with songs making this unit completely useless outside of just a collection piece. Pretty interesting to see that this was actually made though.

This one I just posted for pure comedy…

Ok, can anyone tell me what is wrong with this image? They listed this image in the auction to show that the unit has been “Tested and works!”. I must have missed the day they released Zelda for the Dreamcast! Not to mention that the html code for the austion was posted and looks awful, yet people still bid on it…  Great work guys!
