The great Shuouma has done it again! POD SpeedZone (or POD II if you're in PAL territories) has been resurrected from the online multiplayer graveyard! Having the online functionality restored for this game is fantastic as it was designed from the ground up with online multiplayer in mind. In fact, POD has little in the way of offline content. The single player "Arcade" mode is essentially nothing more than single practice races with no real objective. Going online is where the game really shines. Not only do you have access to more gameplay modes, but you also have an additional track and extra vehicles unlocked after jumping online for the first time. I guess you could say we can once again play POD SpeedZone in the way that Ubi...

Shuouma has launched an updated version of the Monaco Grand Prix Online server which adds Classification (rankings) in addition to several bug fixes and improvements. Here's the full list of changes:

  • Host Switching - If the host quits or gets disconnected, another player will be chosen as host and the game will continue.
  • Classification - The in-game rankings now work. Classification only for now. Hall of Fame is still being worked on.
  • Championship Points - Points from Championship races will now be recorded.
  • Record Database - Lap and track records will be recorded to a database from now on. These records will show up in the Hall of Fame once implemented.
  • Player Timeout Removed - Players will no longer be kicked if the server doesn't re...

Shuouma is back with another online game resurrected! This time it's Monaco Grand Prix Online (or Monaco Grand Prix: Racing Simulation 2: Online if you want the ridiculously long official title). This is a version of Monaco Grand Prix that was released exclusively in Europe and added online multiplayer. It's actually a very rare game so you may need to break out the CD-R spindle if you want to give this one a go.

The game features 17 tracks, two modes, and supports up to six players. The modes include both single race and championship. The latter will likely appeal most to hardcore fans of the game as it can take up to an hour to complete. The game also has online leaderboards so if competing for the fastest time on any given track is your t...

Phantasy Star Online is a great game and it's also one that you put a lot of time into. I've personally racked up over 300 hours just on one character and that's a lot of progress that can potentially be lost in the event of a corrupted save. This is why it's a very good idea to keep backups of all your favorite PSO characters. So how do you do this? Well the obvious way is by simply copying your PSO saves to another VMU (this is a great use for one of those cheap 3rd-party 4x memory cards). This is a bit more complicated than it needs to be though as PSO saves are copy-restricted, which means you're not allowed to copy them to another VMU. There is a workaround however, and that's by using the awesome Dream Explorer utility which has a ha...
