The month of March brings us Blue Stinger, a decidedly bizarre survival horror title and one of the first games ever on the Dreamcast.
Blue Stinger (Dreamcast)
Sixty-five million years ago, a meteorite crashes into the Yucatán Peninsula, subsequently wiping out the dinosaurs and paving the way for humans. Now, in 2000, an island emerges where the meteorite is thought to have landed, and is granted the name "Dinasaur Island." A biotech corporation then takes up shop on the island. In 2018, Eliot Ballade, an elite member of the ESER (Emergency Sea Evacuation and Rescue) forces, is vacationing near Dinasaur Island when something falls from the sky and leaves the island sealed under a mysterious dome of energy. When a mysterious, ethereal being called Nephilim shows up to chase Ballade, he takes it upon himself to solve the enigma of Dinasaur Island.

Here's a quick tip for you guys: when Dogs meets up with you, there should be a crate nearby that he can push. Push it near the building in front of the gate leading to the next area, then climb on top of it to reach the roof of the building. You should then find a key card that opens up the security door. Inside is another key and a hand gun, as well as a save point. ~ Snarboo
Once you enter the staff room, everywhere is out of the supplies you need except the second floor of the shopping area. You're going to have to get those emergency shutters open - which since its kind of completely illogical - is a control panel in storage room 2 that is accessed through a box puzzle. ~ KaL
Ah, I figured out the trick with the Wrestling shirt: You have to press the attack button while standing about two feet apart from any given enemy, wherein Dogs busts out an actually pretty powerful dropkick. Alsof you put a great distance between yourself and an enemy, Dogs rushes at them with a shoulder tackle. ~ Sotenga
