In DreamPod 73, Lewis and Mike deep dive into one of the most obscure and niché corners of the Dreamcast's game library: visual novels. You've heard of them, you've probably seen them.

In this episode, Lewis and Mike explain what these games actually are and clear up many of the misconceptions surrounding them. They also discuss the best of this genre that the Dreamcast has to offer - there's bound to be something worth checking out!As a bonus, the two also cover some of the insane collector's editions that these visual novels (as well as some non-visual novel releases) received on the Dreamcast!Dreamcast games mentioned in this episode:Sakura Wars (aka Sakura Taisen - series)KanonAirEver 17: The Out of InfinityNever 7: The End of InfinityComic PartyReal Sound: Kaze no RegretBaldr Force EXEBlue Submarine No. 6Kimi ga Nozomu Eien (aka Rumbling Hearts)Love Hina: Smile AgainLove Hina: Totsuzen no Engeji HappeningNon-Dreamcast games mentioned in this episode:ClannadPlanetarianUtawarerumono (series)Tears to TiaraAquapazza

Regular DreamPod hosts Tom, Mike and Kev are joined by bonafide YouTuber royalty in the form of not one, but two special guests: Adam Koralik and Max Shockley (aka DreamcastGuy). As ever, topics of conversation veer wildly from the point, but we know you’d have it no other way! In this episode, topics include our favourite surprises from this year’s E3 convention (and Adam’s experiences at the event), the Atari VCS debacle, Shenmue, the new Dreamcast VGA to HDMI converter boxes from Pound and Beharbros, upcoming video projects from both Adam and Max, and there’s even a special (and totally unscripted) appearance from Kev’s infant daughter. We were intending to have some questions from our Facebook group too, but time restraints meant we couldn’t squeeze those in sadly. On the plus side though, DreamPod episode 60 offers two special guests for the price of none, so it’s not all bad!
