OUR DREAMCAST IS STILL OUT!
Look, it's there, right next to the PC so we can use it with the VGA Box. Scroll down to look, then scroll back up again, it's important to read this in order.
All our other games machines had a fair run. A few years at the top, then a happy ending when they were spent and out-classed -- EXCEPT DREAMCAST! It should still be on sale today. It should be, like, 89.99 with a copy of Metropolis Street Racer 2 and 79.99 for a standalone system. It just ISN'T FAIR!
COMMODORE 64, 1984-1992
A sensational eight years "out" for the C64, and it only got put away because it broke and we were 19 and starting to think that the reason girls hadn't had sex with us yet was because of the computer games obsession thing. It wasn't, but that's a whole other update.
MEGA DRIVE, 1992-1997
Five years "out" for Sega's hardware masterpiece. It got put away for the next Sega console, and because it was starting to take up too much room because of all the add-ons. That's how it's SUPPOSED TO WORK :(
SEGA SATURN, 1995-1999
The old Saturn was a failure, but still home to at least eight of the best video games of all-time. When it died we put it away for three reasons; (1) Because it died a brave death fighting Sony (it KNEW it would die yet STILL fought on) and deserved a proper burial. (2) We'd just spent £340 on an imported Dreamcast that was going to make Sega great again, and (3) Ian, who we were sharing a flat with at the time, only had one SCART socket on his TV.
It's STILL OUT! Where's the CLOSURE? It had better games than PS2. We can say that now looking back in cold-hearted hindsight. Jesus, it STILL DOES. The mighty Ikaruga came out when PS2 could only offer us Need for Speed Underground.
It's like an old, sick dog that can only lie on the floor and poo and wee on itself, but we JUST CAN'T PUT ROVER TO SLEEP. Is your Dreamcast also still out? If so, send us a photograph of it. We can probably be friends.
A site about games and game paraphernalia and how nothing's as good as we remember it, probably because we used to inhabit a FANTASY WORLD.
What are we half-heartedly skimming RIGHT NOW?

12 years of wheat and chaff in one vast and impenetrable mass.
Some updates weren't universally hated by the entire world within seconds of being uploaded.
Links to that blog of yours you started up and were excited about for a whole weekend.
Some people we might've MET. Or at least seen in a room and been near.
Other sites we are happy to officially endorse without requiring Adwords spend.
Having one is compulsory, apparently. Ours is here. It is not meant to be funny.
People off the internet. Quality and commitment levels may vary.
It came with the template. Maybe in 2014 we'll jump on board the Twitter train and put that in here. Or a radio. That'd be nice.
