In April of last year I asked you what your favorite online Dreamcast game was, but since then we've had five new games brought back online and the number of online players has increased substantially. Bringing these factors into consideration, I'm sure the results today would be much different. So let's find out! Tell us what your favorite online Dreamcast game is! The poll will stay open for two weeks.

Today I would like to bring to your attention a major issue facing our world today... the crazy number of people that haven't set their Dreamcast Now username! Are you one of these people? If you are, let me ask you one question: Do you want to continue being a nobody? Just some schmoe that plays Dreamcast games online and doesn't have the courage to shout their name out to the world? I implore you, don't be a nobody! Be a somebody! Be anybody! I don't care! It's time to tell the world who you are!

Alright, so with that inspirational speech out of the way, let's get down to the brass tacks. How do you set your Dreamcast Now username? Well it's rather simple. The first thing you need to do is find out your DreamPi's IP address. To do this, ...

Is there a better way to start off the new year than another online Dreamcast game being resurrected? Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Worms World Party is online once again thanks to the amazing Mr. Karlsson! Efforts to try and get this game back online have been going on for a long time now. Just getting to the game lobby proved to be fairly simple but actually being able to start a game was something else entirely. Fortunately we have a genius in out midst in the form of Shuouma who managed to finally track down the final piece of the puzzle. The game is now fully playable online and it's awesome! I must once again give a huge thanks to Jonas for reviving yet another piece of online gaming history! Who knows what the rest of 2017 wi...

The Kickstarter campaign for Militia Studio's Dreamcast-exclusive first-person shooter, In the Line of Fire, has begun! I've been following this game from the very beginning of its development, being in awe of every new screenshot and video released. Unlike most indie Dreamcast titles which are 2D and released on multiple platforms, In the Line of Fire is a fully 3D first-person shooter that was built from the ground up to be a Dreamcast exclusive. This means it will be taking full advantage of the console's hardware; pushing it to its very limits. Judging by what's been shown so far, it could very well be up there with some of the best looking official releases on the system!

At the start of the single-player campaign you play as a SWAT of...

Kazade has released version 1.6 of his DreamPi software. The biggest addition to this release is the incorporation of software developed by Shuouma which will fix the GameSpy-based games (Starlancer, The Next Tetris, and PBA Bowling) for some users. This release will also fix some bugs for anyone using a serial modem or Wi-Fi. You can grab this new release from the Downloads section.

Here's complete list of changes:

  • GameSpy Fix - Incorporated software called dcgamespy by Shuouma which modifies SYN/PSH packets and removes the PSH flag blocked by certain ISPs.
  • Serial Modem Fix - Reduced the modem communication rate which may help with serial modem compatibility.
  • Wi-Fi Bug Fix - DreamPi now waits for an internet connection before doing anythin...
