This week we focus on the small-ish library of role playing games for the Sega Dreamcast. The Sega Dreamcast is a very special system for both of us. It had some great games, but they were also taking risks with some crazy ones. It was also the system that was around just as the arcades started disappearing, so it makes the Dreamcast arcade-ports that much more important. This episode runs a little bit longer because we have so many personal stories about the system, games, and of course, the music.
