Indeed, i tried Propeller Arena some years ago, it was really good.. it’s a shame that it was cancelled, i’m sure that it would have been fun to play it online on the Dreamcast
Why users still use to read news papers when in this technological globe the whole thing is existing on net?
I supplement what I read in the newspaper and what I watch on TV with some good sources on the Internet and not a bunch of hearsay. So the newspaper is still important and people still read it whether in the paper form or the online form it has been converted to. Plus, not everyone in the US can afford Internet and not everyone around the world can access it because in some countries sites are blocked. That is my answer.
I never had a Dreamcast since I was very international growing up in being in many Latin American countries. So I am sad that many games have been cancelled but when it comes to the game developing business it is a cutthroat word. Sadly, some games never get the green light whether for good or poor reasons.
I meant world not word. Oops.
