Well you're not gonna find this to buy in regular places. It never came out on the DC. However on the PC it came and the servers were connected, which is the reason you can still play.

You'll have to find places to download it if you want it right now. But otherwise you'll have to do a lot of looking and meeting people, or wait till christmas when lordnikon does his free giveaway.

When you, or anybody else gets this game, give me a message. i'd be happy to play with you. I only went on about 5 times with a friend i sent the game ot (which some reason I can't get a hold of him anymore) The game not great, but it's worth playing.

It is not homebrew. it was made and was supposed to come out on the DC. When the DC died it didn't got released.

So since the pc version is copyrighted material, i would guess it's illegal to have the DC version. But I'm no lawyer, maybe the DC version is legal in some sense because it is on the DC or something.

But anyway, it may be illegal, but it's the only way. No one is losing money on it, not even people on ebay or other store companys, so I really see no problem with it.

i don't find it to be a problem as we pay for the net we pay for all the dreamcast games so we should get a buggy most likely bad frame rate leaked version free lol

I have PBA Bowling 2001 on DC, and unfortunately, it could have been a much better game than it is. But, on the positive side, I guess it's better than not having a bowling game at all, right?

I was looking last night on Gamespy for the game and couldn't find it, so now I know to look under the PC section. That's good to know.

Since we're talking about a sport worthy of late-night ESPN2 coverage, I think Sierra's Maximum Pool and Hoyle's Casino would have made ideal online games for the DC. I have both of them, and I would love to have online pool tournaments or an online casino for poker or craps or something.

Any thoughts on this?
