Why don't we play together? This month's DreamPod is all about playing the Dreamcast online, which is something you can still do in 2023 thanks to the efforts of some very talented members of the Dreamcast community!
In this episode, regulars Laurence, James and guests Harvey (aka Pizza Hotline) and Holsten talk about their love for playing Dreamcast online, the best and worst games to play online, as well as the games they hope to see be made playable online again in the future. Finally, Laurence attempts to exact revenge on James for last month's quiz with one of his own all about the Dreamcast online. Will the guys survive? You'll have to listen and find out...
Also, “BBA” is an acronym for “Broadband Adapter” the peripheral for the Dreamcast.
