Bought a Panasonic FZ-10 in '95. It came with Pebble Beach Golf, StarBlade and Twisted: The Game Show.

Bloody hard to come by here in OZ too, I can tell you.

MGS - Best. Game. Ever. (on PlayStation). MGS2 - ok but would have been better without Raiden MGS3 - Hideo Kojima redeeemed himself on this one. Much superior than MGS2 with a better storyline and a lot of new features and hidden stuff to find. MGS4 - :( *sigh*. The game has about 10 hours of cutsce...

I remember rushing home with my brand-spanking new Mega CD II and playing Road Avenger! I was playing a cartoon! Wow! Of course the FMV cutscenes in Road Rash on the 3DO made the game worth playing and who could forget the annoying opponent in Need for Speed? Why on earth he was removed for the terr...

Interesting (and probably true). Here in Australia, the best multi-format gaming mag at the time was 'Hyper' magazine which is still going believe it or not. It was the only magazine in Australia to do 3DO reviews and they rated the system and the games very highly. In fact, it was through Hyper tha...

There's a lot of features in PO'ed that were quite advanced for the time ie the ability to look up and down, the jetpack, the ability to jump etc. As far as I know it pre-dated Duke Nukem 3D on the PC which had these features but I could be wrong. I know the first time I played it in the mid-ninetie...

Reading Mattyg's post about the pizza shop reminded me of a similar story. When I was in my late teens/early 20's (back in the 90's) the bloke who ran the local video shop was a bit of a gaming nut and had Neo Geo and 3DO games and consoles for rent! Absolutely unheard of in Oz where both those syst...

Headphone jack

I was playing my good ol' FZ-1 the other night with my headphones plugged into the headphone jack on the controller and I thought to myself - why don't the current generation consoles have this feature? Something to do with the controllers being wireless maybe? But what about the PS2, Xbox or even P...

Of course I'd love to see direct comparisons of psx/3do ports. Yes, please do 3DOKid! There's so many games originally released on the 3DO then ported to PS1 that were ruined. Just off the top of my head there's Need for Speed, Shockwave and of course the abomination that is WCIII on the PS1. Just ...

Wing Commander Saga

Has anyone tried Wing Commander Saga yet? It's free to download here http://www.wcsaga.com/content/view/23/46/ It's runs on the Freespace engine. So far they've only released the prologue but it's certainly faithful to the WC universe. Best thing is it's set in the WC3 timeline :D I know there's bee...

Assault Rigs Basically you drive around in a futuristic tank collecting gems within a set timelimit in an arena. Good graphics for PS1. There are other tanks, turrets etc trying to stop you. There's some good weapon powerups, I particularly like the missilecam :)

Another Aussie has just joined! Hi, my name is Puggsy - great to see a 3DO forum for all us fans.
