I'm building a custom arcade stick for 3DO currently. I was hesitant to even mention it at this point because I'm insanely busy, so it's VERY slow going right now, but I do have the directionals soldered up already, and I've got most of the components I need. I'll post up a complete how-to once I fi...

Hi, Use the search function to search this site for "3DO Blaster". I'm sure it was here that I once found a very detailed list of all of the components and how to configure them properly. I gather that it's a ROYAL pain in the buttocks though. If you want to play 3DO, I'd say go buy a bundle off of ...

Plumber's Don't Wear Ties!!! Sorry...couldn't resist :P Are you looking for a Christmas themed game, or just a good game to play this time of year? I can't think of any Christmas themed games. Christmas is always a time of nostalgia for me, so... If you just want some good old fashioned nostalgic fu...

Demolition Man...Gamegun?

Ok, so I've had a Gamegun since they came out. I got a copy of Demolition Man around the time of it's release, but to my disappointment, it didn't work with my gun. I traded in the copy of Demolition Man years ago because...well...it kind of blows with the pad. However, just now, (while noodling aro...

Re-Volt for the Dreamcast. It might have been available on other systems, but I had the DC version, and it was good. It's an RC car racing game from a behind-the-car view. It features a very imaginative track set that has you racing through everything from museums to neighborhoods and all the while...

mattyg, you make a good point. They teased you and enticed you with promises of greatness, and delivered you a swift kick to the groin instead. You had reasonable expectations, and they used them to crush you like an instect. I had a similar 3DO experience. It wasn't the same because I had no previo...

JJ & Jeff and Tricky Kick were my favorite games for Turbo Graphics. For anyone who doesn't know, I was thrilled when they released JJ & Jeff on the Wii Virtual Console in the US. Grab it if you get the chance, it's well worth the $8. A genuinely imaginitive and funny side scroller with goofy music,...

I always found games like Night Trap, Mad Dog Mcree 2, Corpse Killer etc. to be an artform unto themselves. They represent a style all their own. Interaction with FMV was thought to be the future of gaming at the time, and 3DO was at the front of the pack in the genre. If movies are art, then being ...

Hey Trev, thanks for the warm welcome. Incidentally, I tried popping in BC Racers again for the first time in years, and although I was still able to win most of the races, I found that it gave me horrible motion sickness. I get that every now and again with some first person shooters, but this was ...

I never had this game for 3DO, but a friend of mine did. I distinctly remember it giving an absolutely unparalleled sensation of flight and maneuverability. I actually recently ordered a copy, and I'm just waiting for it to arrive. Get this, I ordered on the 2nd, and it said "estimated delivery betw...

I'm sorry to resurrect an old topic, but I wasn't around here the last time this post made it's rounds. I've had my 3DO since just after launch, and never played Plumbers until yesterday. Good...god... Now I must rant... Look, I know BC Racers wasn't a great game, hell it wasn't a good game, but bac...

I'm new here + Question

Hi Everyone, I'm new here, and so I just wanted to say hello. I'm usually not much for posting on forums, but it's really cool to see a place like this devoted to keeping the 3DO alive. I spent my life's savings on a 3DO when I was 13, and I always wanted to see the video game future that 3DO foresh...

Hey, I realize that I'm way after the fact in replying to this, but I'm new to the forum, and was just searching for Light Gun topics. The little black button is a start button, and on most American Laser Games it takes you to a screen that will allow you to calibrate your aim. You can also most oft...
