What of all time happened to that unfit table we used to phone call the Sega Dreamcast? Why did it quickly vanish after 2 years of production? Was the command up to your neck in brainwashing our minds same in George Orwell's 1984? All these questions will be answered as I do research the Dreamcast's annihilating decrease.


In the opening it was perfect.
