Dreamcast Marathon Online

Greetings!
So some of you may be aware of a 24 hour "Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon" that the now defunct group once known as Sega Addicts once put on. If you haven't heard, well, it's a Charity event that the Sega Addicts put on once a year around the anniversary of the Dreamcast! (That's September 9th, for us U.S. folks!) Some of us ex-members have decided that we'd like to continue this event as it's own thing.

For our first official year, we are being hosted by Sega Nerds/Mega Visions Magazine and the charity will be for the Pittsburgh Children's Hospital in the U.S. and will be holding it on the weekend of September 1st, 2018. We'd like to try and do a few online games with the community and we will be live streaming all 24 hours on Twitch! (http://twitch.tv/MegaVisionsMag)

This is where you all come in! What times would be good for you all and what games would you like to be broadcast to the world? Please let us know in this topic if you would like to participate, your times available, and the games you'd be interested in.

Start time for the marathon is September 1st, 2018 @ 8AM EST!

Since there will be multiple of you in the stream, maybe play one of the games that supports two local players like ChuChu Rocket or Ooga Booga. Of course PSO is a given as well, especially since you're playing on Saturday when a ton of people are usually on.

Greetings, all! I am hosting this insanity from my house and am very excited to see the response on here! As TJ mentioned, we are trying to gage the interest in organizing some online play during the Marathon.

We also have weekly updates posting on Reddit. Feel free to swing by. Next week's post will be very relevant to this site with "What Game Do you Want to See its Online Reignited?" Be sure to keep an eye out!

Thanks, everyone!
