Dreamcast Version Of Half-Life Ported To PC

Did you know that there was supposed to be a Sega Dreamcast version of Half-Life? Probably not! First of all, you might not even have owned a Dreamcast, which means it’s your fault the awesome system failed and Sega was turned into a third party game developer instead of a hardware competitor. So apologize for that, jerk. Also, Half-Life for Dreamcast was never actually released, probably because jerks like you failed to buy Dreamcasts. But the game was actually developed, and it was almost completed! Demos were even sent out, which means even now, there are physical copies of the aborted (and incomplete) game available if you’re enterprising.

Too bad you probably don’t care about it enough to buy a used Dreamcast and then track down a copy of Half-Life for Dreamcast. Seriously, what is it with you and your Dreamcast hate, anyway? But if you really must know what the classic would have looked like on Sega’s gone, but dearly missed final console offering, you’re in luck. A team of modders – Revenant100 aka Marphy Black, Barnz and Besli – have cracked the source code and painstakingly ported it to PC. It is Half-Life, however the Dreamcast version was intended to be subtly different from the PC and PS2 versions, with exclusive NPC models, unique props, modified levels and adjustable difficulty. It’s more curiosity than anything else, but it’s definitely a must-play for dedicated Half-Life fans. Download it right now from GameFront. And then check out our look at some of the best Half-Life films.

I remember playing aero wings on my dreamcast. By far the best flying game on a console ever made. Except for aerowings 2 :)

The Dreamcast was awesome. Unfortunately, Sega is the worst hardware maker ever.

haha i think i used to have one and maybe it broke somehow i dunno, but i had the little digital memory card that you could somehow load games onto it and thought it was the coolest thing.

I kind of miss my DC…Got it around the time the ps2 came out. Hoped it would be the winner when I got it. Alls I know is that one game with the mic…with lenard nemoy as the voiceover, where you had a weird fish with a human face that you had to teach and take care of…that was pretty sweet
