Multiplayer Gaming

Multiplayer gaming. That's when you and your best friends crowd around the tube on your console and play games right? Not any more. The new consoles can handle the internet. That means the next time you're zooming past your buddy on the straightaway in Speed Devils Online Racing, the guy behind the other wheel may actually be in Japan. Thanks to the power of the new consoles, lots of your faves are now internet worthy.

The Good:

Playing multiplayer games across the net let's you hook up with thousands of people without leaving your couch. You can play anytime you want, even in the middle of the night. There's always someone to play with.

It's more fun than playing against the computer which can get boring after a while. People online try new moves, do weird things and say crazy stuff. They're a blast!


The Bad:

You've gotta be careful. If you're playing against someone named 'Ed' from Milwaukee 'Ed' could be anyone at all. 'Ed' may even be dangerous. Never let anyone know who you are, where you are or how to get ahold of you. If anyone starts asking weird questions, let your folks know and stop playing - even if he's a good player.

How to:

All the new systems can go online, here's the specs on what it'll take:
System Dial-up Broadband
Dreamcast Buit-in Nope
PS2 Optional Optional
Xbox Nope Built in
Gamecube Optional Optional

Optional means you've gotta buy the parts for it.
Dial-up means it works everywhere.
Broadband is faster but might not work in your area.


To Start:

The first time you play a game online, you're gonna get beat and you'll probably get beat hard. It happens to everybody. Playing against people is usually harder than playing against the computer. When you get online for the first time, don't worry about winning. See what you can do, talk to folks, make some friends and just have fun.

Some Slang:

  • Newbie - A new player
  • TK - 'Team Killer' Someone who kills their own team, a loser :oP

  • More slang? Right through this link.

    I'd rather just die, but I suppose ketchup since I can not stand mustard in the slightest. >> Would you rather live forever or pass on just to know the truth of what exists after death?
