Uh-oh, he mentioned Shenmue. ;) **edit That's some awesome insight, by the way. I'm so used to seeing from the eyes of someone who has always been surrounded by videogames, old and new, so it's good to see things from a different angle. Speaking of the 32X "looking" more powerful, you got me to thin...

I don't get it. What's wrong with it? That those handful of awesome games you just played, are some of the only awesome games (and by awesome, I mean AWESOME) you will probably play on the system. That's what's wrong. ;) Seriously though, it has some neat titles asides from what you received in you...

Nothing like bumping a month-old thread.. (waits for the ban request) Since I busted out the 3DO yesterday, I was finally able to give this one a shot. Admittedly, I'm pretty lost as to what to do. I understand that your puck is always being sucked towards the drain, and you need to use your boost t...

All right, I received both of them in the mail today (Coincedentally, I hooked up the FZ-10 earlier in the day before receiving them). I didn't get to Shockwave, but I tested Gex before heading to work. For the most part, the game itself is the same as the US version (Title screen, score, lives, men...

Hey man, putting the cart cleaner on is cheating.. nothing passes through it. Oh, and the PBC has to go on the top, all that other crap on top won't work.. Maybe replace the Sonic 2 with a Sonic 2 SMS cart in the PBC, haha..

I will do some usual gameplay/talk videos, at least of Gex, so we will see if it's in English or not. :)

I think you will like the 32X, and you're right, it is an underdog, but unlike the 3DO, it doesn't have a LOT of at least decent to good (many borderlining "great") games, partially because the library is so small. It also has a lot of games that are half-assedly done, like slap-to-the-face half-ass...

So, if I'm understanding this right.. You sold your Saturn to get a 32X? OK, now that's out of the way.. Erm.. I think the usual good titles have been mentioned (Virtua Racing, Virtua Fighter, Kolibri, Shadow Squadron, Star Wars, DOOM). I also enjoyed Tempo, Knuckles Chaotix, Zaxxon's Motherbase 200...

Hm.. I guess I don't count, but I purchased a Goldstar unit from someone in '96 or '97, I think. It came with Bladeforce, Gex, and Super Street Fighter II.. Great games to start off with!

The seller claims they are, and the pictures seem pretty revealing to me. Let me know what you guys think.

Korean 3DO releases?

I was looking for 3DO games on eBay and I found two really cheap, complete, Korean releases. They had the long boxes and everything. I have never personally bothered to look into the Korean releases, and I am curious now--Are all of the releases "big box" games like our US titles, or are there some ...

Hm, IIRC, full-screen video is based on whether the game does it or not (like Icebreaker's FMV.. pretty sure that's full screen). Unless you are talking MPEG/video cd viewing (I guess that could potentially be different, but I've never used it on a 3DO). Not sure if it's worth picking up a Jap unit ...

Yes the DC controller was one of the best, but they could have just taken the SS "Model 2" controller, stuck a thumb pad where the D-pad is, and called it a day.

You mean this analogue controller? it wasn't a major triumph.
