Sega is really being cool to PC users today by giving away for free Jet Set Radio, Golden Axe, and Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit.
Thanks to EPG reader @timfinity for the heads up! <(‘.’)>
I loved playing Jet Grind Radio on the Sega Dreamcast. I herald it as one of the system’s funnest games.
Looks like all you need to do is visit the links above and purchase the free games through steam.
It appears Sega is also including the Hell Yeah! Pimp My Rabbit Pack and Hell Yeah! Virtual Rabbit Missions DLC for free.
I never played Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit, but I hope Xzibit is in the DLC Pimp My Rabbit Pack!

GameStop has been working on getting back into the retro game market for a while now. When it was first announced, there was mad speculation on how this would affect the retro video game market. Would it trigger the burst of the retro video game bubble? Or would it cause games like Chrono Trigger and Earthbound to climb so high, you needed to take out a second mortgage to play it? The store is now live and the prices are…. Actually reasonable. Chrono Trigger is listed for 90 dollars, 4 dollars below the average 94 listed from pricecharting and Conker’s Bad Fur Day is 80 dollars, 3 dollars below the average 80 listed on pricecharting. Of course both of these items along with other desirable titles are listed as out of stock at the time of this article. One surprising item – the NES top loader was listed for 60 dollars. Well below eBay’s going rate.
9/9/99 – Sega Dreamcast hit the North American market with much fanfare. It was truly a next gen console that obliterated the competition. Playstation and Nintendo 64 were aged considerably compared to the Dreamcast. The system had a built in modem for online capabilities, an available keyboard and web browser. Futureproof they said. The framerate on the games was very smooth and the new controller, although bulky, allowed for a new memory card known as the Virtual Memory Unit (VMU for short). The VMU allowed you to take a mini game with you so that you could play on the go. The Dreamcast also had 4 controller ports for local multiplayer. It was ahead of its time and did everything right. But its demise was planned well in advance by Sony who announced that the bigger, faster, DVD playing Playstation 2 would be releasing November of 2000.
