Re: Recent 3DO Purchases

Not 3DO, but 3DO-related. I found Icebreaker and Return Fire for PC for $1 at a Goodwill last week. Now I have Return Fire for three different systems, and I don't know why.

Re: Question about Shelly Duvall's It's A Bird's Life

I'm gonna guess there was no manual. Everything's printed on the inside of the box, and there's separate cards with warranty and Fun Club information (see here).

F1GP will run, but will you want it to run? Autobahn Tokio is at least kinda playable.

This Prism Entertainment apparently owns many of 3DO's old properties. The president used to be general counsel with 3DO.

MobyGames says PO'ed uses SlaveDriver, but that doesn't make any sense. I don't see anything else that says that.

As you'll see here, there's no score in the traditional sense, but it tallies up your enemy hit rates.

Re: 3DO MAS Super Pro-Stick

The 3DO Today guy has one with turbo and slow switches. That makes three. How many of these do you reckon are out there?

I actually find arcade sticks to be a little uncomfortable; they make my hand cramp up.

3DO MAS Super Pro-Stick

Last year, I found a 3DO MAS Super Pro-Stick at a rummage sale. Today, I decided to take some pictures for posterity. The front: 3domas_001.jpg The plugs. Top is for plugging in another controller, the bottom goes into the system. 3domas_002.jpg The bottom. Having some issues with the screws and par...

Re: Road Rash getting back into it.

Does this have anything to do with the 2x disc read speed option you can toggle in the PS2's bios/menu? I don't have those options turned on. There are very brief moments, especially in valleys, where it gets pretty smooth. I don't remember noticing that on my PS1, but I guess I'll have to dig that...

Re: Road Rash getting back into it.

Is it my imagination or does PS1 Road Rash have a higher framerate on the (slim) PS2 than on a regular PS1? Anybody want to corroborate? (Off-topic, but G Darius feels the same way, too.)

Re: Recent 3DO Purchases

Anybody know anything about MAS Super Pro-Sticks? I found one at a trailer park yard sale, and at this point I'm pretty sure it's for 3DO. (The guy said he thought it was for Genesis.) There's two plugs - one looks exactly like the one on my 3DO controller. The other one must be for daisy chaining. ...

Re: Alone in the Dark vs. Resident Evil

My Saturn is unmodded, so I have to use an Action Replay cart to play imports. Deep Fear is one of a handful of multi-disc Saturn games which, due to the mechanism used for saving progress between discs, cannot be played to completion using the Action Replay cartridge. That's why the PAL version go...

Anybody know how to get through mission 6, where you have to destroy the air base and deal with enemy radar? Is this the final mission? Thanks.
