    • Return to the Forbidden Planet – The Saturn has been almost universally slammed, but some of its games were actually rather good. These are the ones we’d like to see updated for Dreamcast.

    The Dreamcast was probably my favorite Sega console and the only one I owned when it was active. Like most consoles, it had magazines dedicated to it. DC-UK, as you might imagine, is a U.K. based Dreamcast magazine. The December 2000 issue includes:

    Features

    • From Geek to Chic – Ex-Edge editor Jason Brookes explores how videogames suddenly became an okay thing to do with your mates rather than a stigmatizing bedroom hobby beloved of lonely boys. From DJ culture to the cynical world of licensing, Brookes assesses the individual elements with the intellectual rigor of a rocket scientist. If you want to know why it is that you’re playing games rather than, say, hanging out at that new win
