Re: Upgrade cartridge?

http://i.imgur.com/IBhG0bW.jpg To clarify, the unit being held in that photo, while it may look like an add on, and may have originally been designed as an add on, was actually an empty shell of the complete system M2 prototype. It was used at invitation only preview sessions at CES where a 5 minut...

Not entirely true. Years ago, a fellow took apart his FZ-1, and upgraded the memory. I forget if he soldered in a board or replaced the chip or what, but he did and it worked. If I remember correctly, he renamed it the 3DOX and painted it silver.

If you want a game that'll likely piss you off, try Vay for the Sega CD. I got near the end and then the difficulty ramped up to such a degree that I threw in the towel and quit.

The wonders of translation.

So I was translating some titles in a 3DO auction, and the translation for one of them comes up as Mean Bitches of Satan. If anyone tries to outbid me on Mean Bitches of Satan, we're gonna have to get into some fisticuffs. If they sold that title at Babbages, there is no way the 3DO would have faile...

I don't think the title was screwed up, but I found it the way I usually do. It was either "3do import" or "3do japan" Actually I don't think it was listed as Korean. I don't think I was searching for Korean specificaly then.
