Hi. Would you tell me if Evil Twin will still be released for the
Dreamcast? I've been anticipating this title ever since Rayman 2.
There's still 8 million Dreamcast owners out here and I'm sure a lot of
us would buy Evil Twin even as Sega pulls the plug on the Console
Business. I read that's its due for the PS2 in Feb or March.
Yes, Evil Twin will be released on the Dreamcast but not in North America. It will be available on the PlayStation 2 on our shores but not on the Dreamcast. If you wan't to still purchase the game, it will be released in the UK (in english) on February 22. You can check it out here.

Just wondered if this game was ever made available to the
UK market. If so can you shed any light on where I can locate
After I received your letter I searched across the net to see if I could find anything on a UK release of Sega Marine Fishing, but I came up empty handed. The GameSpy Store has the game, but I'm not sure how compatible the US version would be with your PAL system.

I've always wanted a Dreamcast but its been till this December that I could afford the price, and who couldn't at $50. With all the great games that were released I couldn't wait to buy them and play them on my Dreamcast but there seems to be a problem. I now currently own 8 games, but the Dreamcast will not load Sonic Adventure nor Grandia 2. I've also had problems with Shenmue and other games but they seem to be sporadic and unpredictable. I even took Sonic back to BestBuy to get a new one that also didn't work. By looking in forums it also seems like this is a common problem, what should I do? I'd hate to miss out on Grandia 2.
Subject: Games Not Loading
Hello, i am looking for a site for some info on the sega machine. My son's machine runs but when you load the games and it says press start button--it does not start the games. I was wondering if there was some sort of troubleshooting I could do or a place that I could take it to be fixed. Please reply.
Thank you, Flori

Subject: ISP # Help
Hi! I cant go online with my dreamcast. When i write in the dial number, it says Check your ISP Number because it is busy even though its not!!! What do i do? And how do i exactly find out what my ISP # is?
When they are referring to your "ISP #" they mean the phone number that you are dialing. So when setting up your browser make sure that the phone number you enter is correct. To help you even further, Sega has made available a help page for setting up your Dreamcast to go online. You can check it out here. Hope this helps. :)
