22 April 2011: Space Channel 5 day
On 22 April 2006, Owen wrote the following on his blog, about Space

It is stupidly easy, but Owen didn't get to try again five years later.
Instead, I propose that we do.
So, get a copy of Space Channel 5. If you can't find a copy of the
original game, try the sequel. On 22 April, play it and try to get past
level 1. Come on to ugvm and post about it.
So I will be dusting off my dreamcast & crossing one game off my list of "games not played" for Owen
