It's the long-awaited episode about the one system that gets brought almost every episode: The Dreamcast. As Sega's last console, the Dreamcast had to dig the company out of the financial hole the Sega Saturn had put it in and it aimed to do so with the latest technology and incorporating the internet. As the first console of the sixth generation. In this episode, we talk about why this all mattered, how it created the foundation that Xbox Live was built on. And we do it all with the help of Charles, a friend of the pod with a background in games and love for the Dreamcast and Shenmue.
