Re: Another problem identified with laser sled FZ-1 & FZ-10.

I discovered a crack in this gear in one of my FZ-1s, a few weeks ago. It was definitely preventing the lens from moving properly. I just ended up swapping out the whole CD-ROM assembly from another unit, but I'd like to fix it, if possible. Did anyone ever find a replacement gear? And for what it's...

Nintendo was very willing to bargain on repair prices when my Wii took a crap. I stopped getting any picture from it.

I usually use Video Game Critic if I want to quickly skim through a platform's games to get an idea of what's available for it and pick out a few good games.

As for Night Trap, I've actually been thinking about getting it. Is the 3DO the definitive version, or would that be the 32X+CD version?

I bought this game yesterday because I remembered seeing a few posts praising it here. I have to say, it's great! I'm really impressed with how fast and silky smooth the action is. On top of being a nice technical demo for the system, it's just plain fun.
