This intense FPS game allows you to play online with others and test your skills. This game allows up to 4 players to battle it out online. There are still many servers that still support the Dreamcast game system running today (yes, 2008 still rocks for the DC). There are still yearly tournaments hosted for the Dreamcast online.

Phantasy Star Online

CONNECTION TYPE: BBA & Dial-up modem

This role playing game, with a little relation of a first person shooter, allows you to create your own character and explore different areas on the planet of Ragol. There are three different classes of characters: Rangers, Hunters, and Forces. Each character has its own advantage to leveling up in the game. For example, if you are a hunter you might have better attack power, if you are a ranger you might have better accuracy.

Phantasy Star's offline mode, offers a conspiracy theory. When you first start off in the game, you meet the principal, scientists, and the principals secretary of Pioneer 1. Then behind you would be a green transporter you would warp threw to Pioneer 2. There, is where your missions take place. You may also take on quests in the Guild, which also helps you to figuring out more pieces of the puzzle as to what really could have happened to the departure of the pleasure boat.

The pleasure boat was given the name: The Gran Squall. It was suppose to depart and join Pioneer 1 and 2 together. However, after the departure, there just happened to be a huge explosion. As a result, Pioneer 1 had lost contact with Pioneer 2. Then you are given the job of resolving the conspiracy, it is up to you to find information, and put it together and solve the mystery! As you are running around on the different areas of planet Ragol, you will find messages on the ground that will light up yellow, these messages are put in almost every part of the areas, this is where you are to find most of your information. These messages are left behind by none other than, Red Ringed Rico, who happens to be the principal daughters. She is a big part of the story board.

CONNECTION TYPE: Dial-up modem/Netopia

Starlancer requires the DNS of your connection method to be set to The Dreampi DNS:

Starlancer is a flight simulation game that feels like a motion picture space battle epic (ala Star Wars). Countries from around the world form an alliance known as the 45th Volunteers Squadron to defend the Earth and solar system. The phrase "defend" is the key in this game as you find yourself always in defense mode. Despite the fact that you are on the defensive, sound mix is bad and the story-line is weak, it does not take away the fact that this game has great graphics as well as great game play from the DC controller.

When playing online, it differs greatly from the offline game play. Some differences include power-ups and a confined arena. One difference between PC and DC is the DC version does not have a cooperative missions mode.

Maximum Pool contains 12 game modes including eight ball, nine ball, rotation, cutthroat, pocket and carom billiards, and snooker (as well as a unique game of Pocket Poker).

There is virtually no lag online as you face pool hustlers who will take the shirt off your back. You can also face PC players online just like in Quake 3 and PSO.
