It's about time I got around to interviewing this guy! Luke Benstead a.k.a "Kazade" has become somewhat of a household name in the Dreamcast online community. He's the inventor of the fabulous DreamPi software which enables gamers to play online Dreamcast games much easier than with older, outdated methods. In addition to DreamPi, he's also created a fantastic website/service called Dreamcast Now which allows DreamPi users to see who's online and what game they're playing. Without a doubt, DreamPi and Dreamcast Now have given a big boost to the number of players taking advantage of the Dreamcast's built-in 56k/33k modem. As of just recently, Dreamcast Now has sneaked past 100 registered users and that number just keeps increasing...

It's been almost three months since ChuChu Rocket! was brought back online and while the online mutliplayer has proved very popular, Puzzle Land has remained barren with the exception of a couple test puzzles.

Show off your puzzle-creating chops by going up against other ChuChu Rocket! players in a battle to build the most creative and ingenious puzzle! The contest will run until September 27th, at which point I will put up a poll where you can vote for your favorite. The puzzle/player with the most votes will win a plaque in the Hall of Champions!

This isn't too surprising since it runs on virtually identical server software to Tetris and Starlancer which are powered by GameSpy. Only minor adjustments were needed to get PBA Bowling up and running.

Many of you might be scratching your heads thinking "I've never heard of this game." and that's because it was never released, at least not officially anyway. Bethesda (yes this game was developed by the Elder Scrolls/Fallout guys) shelved the Dreamcast version of the game most likely due to the discontinuation of the console but an unfinished build of t...

Sonic Adventure's online functionality has been restored thanks to the efforts of Jial, S4pph4rad, and Dan (DR TEAMCAST) of Assembler Games and Dreamcast-Talk. While the game lacked any sort of online multiplayer features, it did have the World Rankings which could be accessed through the in-game Internet option. The World Rankings allowed you to upload your best scores for the various levels in the game and see how you stacked up to other players around the world. This gave players just small taste of how the Dreamcast could connect players around the world with it's built-in 56k/33k modem.

While the Sonic Adventure website was mostly restored earlier this year, the restoration of the World Rankings feature makes the website 100% feature ...
