Have you made a purchase from the Dreamcast Live Shop? If so, were you satisfied with the transaction? Was it the absolute best purchase you've ever made in all the time you've existed so far? Or maybe it was the opposite and you were absolutely outraged with the despicable attitude of your sales representative (sorry, I tried :-P). Whatever the case, you can now leave reviews on the shop page! Any and all reviews are appreciated! Thanks in advance!

If you've been following the progress on Dreamcast-Talk or Twitter, you'll know that I've been working on my own Dreamcast VS Link cables and promised that I'd have them for sale soon. Well the wait is over! Starting today, VS Link cables are now available in the Dreamcast Live Shop for $39.99 each. If you're unfamiliar with what a VS Link cable is, it's a very rare accessory (I'm talking $200 rare) for the Dreamcast that allows you to connect two consoles together via the serial port for multiplayer on dual screens. This will work with any games that are VS Link compatible. F355 Challenge and Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram were the only two games released in the west but there are three additional VS Link games that were released exclusivel...

Ever wanted to play a Dreamcast game with the original developers? Well now's your chance! Visual Concepts has been hooked up with a DreamPi, courtesy of Dreamcast Live, so they can join us playing some Ooga Booga online. Some of you might have already played with them if you were online between 8:00PM and 9:00PM Eastern last Wednesday (they were "Player_05604"). A Dreamcast and DreamPi are now permanent fixtures on the desk of one of the Ooga Engineers so they can jump online at any time. Just keep an eye out on Dreamcast Now for "VisualConcepts" if you'd like to take on the devs at their own game. You can also check this forum thread on Dreamcast-Talk for scheduled times when they'll be online.

Today is a momentous occasion and one I've been waiting for for a long time now! Wait for it.... Ooga Booga has been brought back online thanks to the one and only Shuouma! Speaking as someone who is probably the world's #1 Ooga Booga fan (I even have what is likely the only signed copy of the game by the original development team), this makes me extremely happy. Even though the game is fully playable offline, it's still amazing to be able to play it with Dreamcast fans across the globe. The frantic, boar-riding, shrunken-head-throwing, spell-casting, ridiculousness that is Ooga Booga is a treat to play online and can be absolute mayhem with 4 players. If your Dreamcast is online (as it should be), this is an absolute must-play game. Althou...

This past year has been another great one for the Dreamcast online community. Not only do we have more and more players every day connecting their Dreamcasts to the internet but we've also had an increase in the number of games we can play online thanks to Shuouma. We now have a total of 14 games that can be played online with hopefully even more to come in the near future. So of these 14 games, which ones are the best? The cream of the crop if you will. Well we're about to find out. The people have spoken with over 160 votes in this year's poll. Here are your top 5 online Dreamcast games!

Quake III Arena was and remains to this day one of the most popular online Dreamcast games. It's no surprise considering the massive following the Quake franchise has had since its debut. Naturally getting the latest game in the series ported to Dreamcast would be a big system seller for Sega's latest console, so that's exactly what they did. Not only would it be a good showcase for the pixel-pushing power of the system but it would also be a trail-blazer for online gaming on a console.


I was fortunate enough to be granted an interview with the game's Senior Producer, Scott Hawkins who not only worked on Quake III Arena but also happens to be the creator of Sega Swirl. In this interview you'll get a behind-the-scenes look at the development ...

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...
