Unreleased beta Dreamcast games get released

So before the Dreamcast finally went to rest it seems there were still some games in development for it. Some of them are even floating around on the internet as full betas! Awesome right? Well in celebration of 11 years of Dreamcast fun, the folks over at the PSO archive have released the beta versions of System Shock 2 and Thief 2 that were in development for the system before it’s unfortunate crib death.

But there’s only one problem with this. The betas aren’t quite, well, playable yet. That’s why we Dreamcast fans need a hero. A hero to step in. To take on the challenge. You can do it. Make these playable on the Dreamcast and bring joy to the world once again! The files can be found here, you brave soul. Reach for the stars!

    We need a hero. We are holding out for a hero till the end of the night. He’s got to be strong and he’s got to be smooth and he’s got to be larger than life
    Heh, all jokes aside, this is astounding news. I am going to have to find a way to get my hands on a copy for my Dreamcast whenever someone actually fixes the beta for it

  • If someone actually gets System Shock 2 into a playable form I will be a very happy man indeed. It’s a game I’ve never had the chance to play and although I could get it for PC I would really like to see what it would play like on my trusted Dreamcast.

    Oh its an awesome game. I had it for the PC for a while, and it scared the life out of me when I played it until late into the night. I have only one recommendation for you when you get your hands on it, do not try and do both path (as in the guns path and the basically Jedi path). Your characters ability to proceed in the game wavers after a bit and if you are fully going half and half after a while you just can’t continue at all, since you aren’t good enough at either

    ^ Same as Alex. I can’t think of any places that System Shock 2 is a digital download today but I certainly would take a run through it if I could get it for Dreamcast in a minute.
