We’re making some changes here at Dream Cancel. We’re evaluating some of our current features and constantly working on new ideas.
As part of this evolution, expect to see more online gaming events. We’re working to make sure that all online networks will be included in our events, including XBLive, PSN, GGPO, Supercade and ArcLive. We’re also trying to cover as many possible SNK game series as possible. Our first two events will cover KOF 2002 on GGPO and NeoGeo Battle Coliseum on XBLive. We’re going to host some open XBLive parties as well. In time, we hope to cover KOF 98 and 2002; Last Blade 2; Real Bout 2; SamSho II and IV; and any other games the community is interested in.
We have more ideas in the works. As they say, The Future is Now!
