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...

The Dreamcast had a decent size library of online games released during its lifetime; around 78 games total across all regions. This may not sound all that impressive by today's standards considering just about every game released these days has some sort of online functionality, but considering this was the first console to have online functionality out-of-the-box, it's certainly not too shabby. Sega didn't consider the system's online capabilities to be some sort of gimmick; they really pushed developers to include online play in their games. The number of online games surely would have reached well over 100 had it not been for the console's short lifespan and the resulting cancellation of many of the games headed to the system. One such ...

Shuouma has worked his voodoo magic once again! Although this time he hasn't really brought a game back online, because technically it was never "offline" to begin with, but Sega Swirl is now playable online without having to resort to a lot of technical hackery. For those of you who are unaware, Sega Swirl is a puzzle game which was included in certain Dreamcast web browsers, demo discs, and in the Sega Smash Pack. The game had an online multiplayer mode but not in the traditional sense where you would have a game server. Sega Swirl actually used email to accomplish this. You would set up an email account using PlanetWeb or your regional equivalent web browser and would then be set to Swirl with other players around the world. Un...

A mere month after the revival of Ooga Booga, another online multiplayer game has been brought back to life thanks to Shuouma! This time it’s World Series Baseball 2K2. If you’re a fan of "America's Favorite Pastime", this is definitely one you’re going to want to try out.

Without spoiling anything, there were some really exciting moments and a great...
