Cube magazine

This might be a long shot (actually, there's no "might" about it, it's a long shot!) but does anyone happen to know where I could purchase copies of the UK's Cube magazine? It was a brilliant GCN magazine and I've only been able to find these sites, albeit they're very good: http://gamesworldbodmin....

Re: Wii U

Just reading through some old threads and I'd be interested to hear what the Wii U owners are feeling these days? Still got the love? I sold mine last year but it was a tough choice. But, to be honest, even though I had a few games the only reason it was a hard decision was because of Lego City as I...

Re: If EA came out with their own console...

It's interesting reading back over the 3DO Magazines how much they raved about Electronic Arts. In this day and age they're known for next to no originality and recycling games year after year, but back then it was completely different! They were at the forefront of new gaming ideas. How times change.

Games recoded for PAL

Hi all Well my first 3DO system this time around is again going to be a PAL machine. I know the first Alone in the Dark is meant to have been recoded so that it ran full-screen and at a faster rate, and the 3DO Magazine mentions one or two others. Basically, I love those big boxes and would prefer t...

You know something? I have my old CRT upstairs, I may just have to have two TVs in my living room. One for actual TV, movies etc. and one for 3DO.

Yup it's quite amazing how good of a picture the 3DO puts out with S-Video! Back in the day I just used the standard composite cables, I'd say about 5 years ago I switched.

I prefer his Type A over C.
I agree with this too, though I do like all three, but 'A' just wins out for me, not sure why... brighter and more welcoming. That doesn't make sense. I should've just said "aye, I agree".
