Re: Memory Unit - Worth it? (nevermind, it's mine now xP)

Worthwhile thing to have. Prices seem pretty stable. Got mine unboxed and somehow using it resolved an issue I had whereby the internal memory would not save gex. Now it does and having things backed up is always good. One question, the connector on mine that goes I to the 3do, the metal part is how...

Re: Review - Return Fire

I just got it and I love it. Agree the lack of being able to tell which maps have been completed easily is a little annoying but overall it's superb. Anyone know if the pal maps o death second release works on NTSC consoles? On back of pal case it says note this game plays in letterbox format on pal...

Re: Saturn QUAKE

Been after it for a while. I believe pal copy will run fine on NTSC machine unlike duke nukem which runs but is unplayable really/clips and misses out the ammo info etc. Anyone confirm this? Bought exhumed pal and it runs fine but the cutscenes are out of sync can live with that.

Re: New to Atari Jaguar

Love the colours and large sprites and music on the jag. After a japanese version for the 3do never seen one but one day I'll get it hopef...

Also can be played on 360. I do have fonder memories of Shenmue one on the DC however this is an excellent game a...

Re: Seriously, why no new port of DOOM?

It is worth getting if you like doom but it is a very poor version of the game. Playable but only just and ideally with the screen size fairly low. Music does just about save it from being pointless but it's poor when compared with the superb jaguar game.

Re: Stepdown transformers

If you use memory manager disc it will be in japanese or check if it has an rf out on the back if it does it's not japanese as they didn't use that connection by then. I think. Can't actually move mine where it is easily to check but I am fairly sure only USA and pal machines have rf on back.

It will not play a pal copy of alone in the dark or wolfenstein and I believe it does not have an rf out on the back while the USA and pal ones do.
