UT online forever! Okay, I'm pushing it, but seriously, I'd love to see them all go online. NFL2k2, Mechanic and I will battle on who is the Eagles.

It's not like this is xbox live arcade where 2 or 3 games come out per week. And there are only a few more games to be brought back online unless Shuouma can bust open some Japanese titles.

I heard Shuouma just purchased a Ginsu knife from ebay Japan. I wonder why he did that?

From the further replies it seems unanimous that people feel it will bring more players and want more games. This is a good sign.

Don't take this topic the wrong way, it wasn't an invitation for an argument. I felt it was something that should have been mentioned to see other peoples thoughts.

I agree with Anonymouse that there is a risk that the player base might not be large enough to support lots of games online simultaneously. However, as we can see, there aren't all that many online Dreamcast players these days period. There are 235 players in total according to http://dreamcast.online/now/ , and though that doesn't count everyone, it is a good approximation.

That being said, getting enough players is why we organize game nights - to focus the player base at a particular game. As long as the game nights continue, there should be enough people playing online. Hopefully one day we will have enough active online players that many different online games can be played any hour of any day of the week.

Besides, PSO all by itself gets monotonous.
