Ep. 99: 9/9/99 – Launching the Dreamcast (Again)

Dreamcast Junkyard veterans Tom Charnock and Brian Vines join us to share their knowledge and experiences of the Dreamcast’s launch in both the European and US markets, respectively, and even a little on the Japanese market’s launch. In this episode: bonding over our strict video game upbringing rules; doing our darnedest to NOT derail into a Geist Force investigation; why the packaging differed; a deep dive into swirls; various lawsuit threats toward Sega; and many of the similarities and differences between these two market launches.
