In episode 74 of the DreamPod, Andrew, Tom, Lewis and newcomer Martin speculate about a future where Sega's trusty swirl-embossed box of wonder could have succeeded in the war against big bad Sony and their mighty PlayStation 2.

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
