Re: Why has 3DO Zone disappeared from Google?

Took me a while to find this forum again after a hard drive malfunction, I was able to do it from a link I found on the 3doplanet.ru forum.

The goldstar controller looks a bit better but its actually not that good compared to the panasonic controllers. If remember right the manual for Samurai Showdown or SSF2T actually recommend using the old 'loosen the controller screw near the Dpad' fix to get the Dpad to be more responsive. I love h...

I completely understand that making good youtube videos isn't the easiest thing to do, it would just be nice to see someone go through the game to show how to play it, that it can be done and on the 3do instead of the very similar Win95 version. I know its brick hard and doesn't have a difficulty sl...

Such a good game if you spend time with it.

Probably the most rewarding game of all, what a great feeling it is if you manage to successfully complete the campaign.

Its just superb.

I just remember my mate being non too pleased with his PSX version at the time, he had been spoiled with my 3do before jumping on the Sony bandwagon.

I know the 3do is bit older than the Saturn and Ps1 but did the newer consoles support Pro Logic surround sound for their titles?

Rayman definitely

Command & Conquer

X-Com

Blade Runner

Any NHL Game

Liberation (CD32)

Resident Evil

As many SNK Neo Geo ports as possible.

I like to think the 3DO could do these titles justice.

When I say it just like the Playstation the 3DO memory manager is more of a list of game saves rather than a block of icons. I dont think the 3DO has any system options, like change language so its time to learn some Japanese my friend.

So long as you have tested other import consoles on your TV it should work fine its only the really old sets that cant display NTSC in colour and I think its safe to say that all the HD tvs display NTSC no problem. You'll need a step down transformer, that you plug the 3DO into, that converts your l...

Outlander on the Mega Drive is still bags of fun to play. Its basically The Road Warrior where you have to make it across a wasteland picking up fuel and ammo as you battle the lawless road gangs. Its great being able to shotgun the bikers thru the side windows whilst driving the car.

Electro Cop on the Atari Lynx is worth a good look, for an early title it shows off how impressive the Lynx hardware is.
The game involves hacking doors jacking into computers and blasting bad guys thru the many levels of the Megacorp building as you hunt another robot. Check it out.
