Hmm, the graphics sure looked good, but then again we are watching the
footage in a tiny window. Wonder how good it will look when blown up to
the full TV screen... (footages for previous games looked equally good
when shrunk to the same size). I can't help but feel that the Dreamcast is
once again doomed, after Sony went public with their plans for the
PlayStation 2. While the technology involved provides a paradigm shift,
it seems like character (human) oriented game would benefit the most from
Sony's "emotion" technology, but real world physics model of gravity and
distinction between different materials sure could help make a Gundam game
look and feel more real than what you could accomplish on the Dreamcast.

I guess I'll wait until the Dreamcast becomes a clearance item at TRU, like
the Saturn...
