The latest giveaway post has arrived! In honor of the recent revival of all the Visual Concepts sports games, I figured it would be fitting to give away some of them this month. The more astute of you may have notice that I said "some" and "them", which if you're up on your grammar, are words that insinuate more than one. That's right, I'm giving away not one, but TWO games this month! Two shiny brand new games to boot! Up for grabs are brand new copies of both NFL 2K1 and NBA 2K1! Whether you're into basketball or football, you're covered here! On the other hand, if you're into neither of these sporting genres, you still have nothing to complain about because they're FREE! Get over it! :-P

When it comes to online games on the Dreamcast, Europe had a few exclusive titles; these games included Monaco Grand Prix Online, Planet Ring, and Toy Racer. Toy Racer is probably the most well-known of these due to the fact that it was a spin-off of one of the most loved titles on the Dreamcast, No Cliche's Toy Commander. Toy Commander is in my opinion one of the most creative and unique games on the console; which is saying a lot considering creative and unique is what the Dreamcast did best. Sadly Toy Commander didn't make use of the Dreamcast's in-built modem and so multiplayer was limited to local split-screen. This is where Toy Racer came in to save the day. Toy Racer took the racing segments of Toy Commander and put them into their o...

You didn't think the excitement was over with last weekend's NFL/NCAA revival did you? Shuouma has now officially revived every Visual Concepts sports game with today's announcement that the NBA 2K series is back online! This is a major milestone for Dreamcast online game revival as not only are all the western sports titles playable online again but this also brings the total number of games playable online over 20! This number has doubled in the last couple years thanks to the amazing work of Jonas Karlsson. Well done good sir! Well done!

The Dreamcast's online library is constantly growing and as a result, the regular Game Night rotations are getting a bit crowded. Due to the large amount of sports titles, it wasn't logical to add them all to the Game Night rosters, although I am consolidating the NFL/NCAA games into one night so they're at least in there. It was suggested in the Dreamcast-Talk forums that we have a Game Night specifically for the sports titles, which is a wonderful idea! Say hello to Dreamcast Live's newest weekly event: Monday Night Sportsball! Join us every Monday night at 9:00PM Eastern for some intense sportsball action featuring NFL 2K1/2K2, NCAA 2K2, World Series Baseball 2K2, and (coming soon) NBA 2K1/2K2! Check out the official forum thread here a...

Are you ready for some football?! Shuouma is back with not just one but three more online Dreamcast games revived! NFL 2K1, 2K2, and NCAA 2K2 can now be played online once again! All of these games have essentially the same network code with some minor differences so reviving them all at once made sense. In our tests, the games ran extremely smooth online with almost no lag at all which is great, especially considering Shu and I are in different countries. Of course these games support up to 8 players so it remains to be seen how well they'll perform with a full roster. Regardless, it's fantastic to have three more games added to the list of online games playable in 2018! As usual, a huge thanks goes out to Shuouma for all his work and dedi...

When it comes to the Dreamcast's online capabilities, I don't think a lot of people give it as much credit as it's due. The ability to play games online wasn't just an afterthought, it was part of the Dreamcast's DNA. In fact, the "cast" in Dreamcast is short for "broadcast" and refers to the console's ability to bring players together with the power of the internet. To Sega, this wasn't just some sort of gimmick. They knew online gaming was the future and they wanted to be the first to bring an out-of-the-box online gaming experience to consoles. With this, they truly did succeed.

Why do I say the Dreamcast doesn't get enough credit in this area? I can't tell you the number of times I've heard people say that the Dreamca...
