    Default I put my money where my mouth is

    Yep, just to prove SoCal wrong I have picked up a used copy of Virtua Tennis for the Dreamcast so as soon as it arrives I'll give it a whirl.

    can't see me changing my vote though.

    Dude, if you don't change your vote, I will be very surprised. And make sure you play it more than once before making a decision. Play it a few times and you will start to see why nearly everyone else considers this one of the best sports titles of all time.

    If the house is quiet I could record while I play it for the first time.

    OK I played it, and recorded the session too.

    My thoughts?

    Guess you'll have to wait for the show to find out.

    Now thats what they call in the business, A Tease.

    You'd think you'd give the dedicated forum member a little taste of the action, but we'll wait with the common man :-)

    Kidding of course, can't wait for that segment, should be good!

    I'm surprised by one major thing that wasn't mentioned in the podcast, given all the Virtua Tennis discussion.

    If you happen to have the fishing controller for the Dreamcast, you can use it to play Virtua Tennis. You can actually use the motion controls on the fishing controller to swing the racket. It may look weird, but it works great.

    I didn't know that and I have a fishing controller. I will have to try it out.

    Thanks for the tip.
