A Sega Dreamcast Development Kit was dropped off at RE-PC in the Seattle area for recycling. Thankfully they saved it and got it running along with prototype and development software plus design documents. It’s a cool piece of Sega Dreamcast history and is now on display at the Tukwila store! Check it out: http://www.repc.com
I should add that the museum parts of RE-PC are completely FREE, so swing by if you are in the area and check out their cool stuff!
JohnRiggs – An NES prototype for the unpublished Days of Thunder was found on several floppy disks, the game’s code manually pieced together and made playable thanks to the Video Game History Foundation and Rich Whitehouse. This unreleased Days of Thunder for NES is completely different from the one that was officially released.

Holy cow! This was way more complicated than I ever expected… oh…and did I mention that 3 more rare blue dev disks showed up after my last video!? Thankfully Tony from @Hard4Games flew from Detroit to Seattle to help me discover what is on my mystery blue disk, whether there was anything on the other 3 disks AND backup the firmware of the drive itself! It’s an epic tale full of mystery, intrigue and excitement!
Behind the Scenes w/ METAL JESUS ROCKS in Seattle! – H4G
Tony: Had an amazing time in Seattle with Metal Jesus Rocks! For those unaware, he had found an ultra-rare American N64 DD unit. It’s so rare that it’s the only one known to exist. He generously flew me out to shoot a video, show me around Seattle, and ultimately preserve the contents of his discovery. Amazing time. 10/10 would Seattle again!
