    Episode 129: SEGA SATURN, SHIRO!

    Episode 129: SEGA SATURN, SHIRO!

    In the most exciting crossover since Jay-Z and Linkin Park did Collision Course, Brian and Lewis are joined by two stalwarts of both the Sega Saturn and Dreamcast community: SaturnDave and Patrick (TraynoCo) of SEGA SATURN, SHIRO!

    SHIRO! originally started in 2017 as a podcast dedicated to the Saturn, but has since grown into a website, YouTube channel and community dedicated to spreading the love of Sega's misunderstood 32-bit wonder, and later the Dreamcast. In this episode, we go into detail about SHIRO!'s origins, the present and future of the Saturn, the strengths and similarities of both consoles, and much much more. We also put SHIRO! on the spot and ask them to name their top three Dreamcast titles.

    Episode 124: Celebrating 25 Years of Dreamcast - A Retrospective

    The Dreamcast Junkyard's "The Top 200 Dreamcast Games... Voted by You! (2023 Edition)" is available now! Check it out now on the website: https://www.thedreamcastjunkyard.co.uk/p/the-top-200-dreamcast-games-voted-by.html

    On this day, 25 years ago, the Sega Dreamcast was launched in its home country of Japan - nearly an entire year before it released in the West. It was Sega's follow up to the much misunderstood Saturn, and sadly their last console before moving to being a third-party developer/publisher. In this podcast retrospective, Andrew, Brian, Mark and Mike cover everything to do with the Dreamcast's 28th of November '98 launch, and discuss what it was that made Sega's swansong console so darn special.

The best retro gaming podcast, period!

It doesn’t matter if you know much about the Dreamcast or not, this is a solid retro gaming podcast with some really talented, funny, and well informed hosts who have amazing chemistry and are always full of interesting information and facts about the thriving Dreamcast scene. I’ve listened to every episode and I’m always looking forward to new ones coming out :)
