Re: Need help with Japanese 3DO FZ-1

Hrm. Could be the drive motor, if the disc isn't even spinning. Maybe some people here with more experience with the system can give some better advice. I personally would take it apart and see what it's doing (and not doing).

Re: Need help with Japanese 3DO FZ-1

Well then hypothetically it should be working. I'm guessing your laser is shot. Perhaps. Hrm.. does the disc drive spin up with you put a disc in? Do you hear it trying to read? Does it make any weird noises?

Re: Need help with Japanese 3DO FZ-1

Basically you're saying it doesn't play discs at all? Sounds like a bad drive. Can you play a music cd? Also, what country are you in? There's a chance the system isn't getting the right amount of power, if you're using a converter.

Re: 22 Prince of Persia versions

I'm late to this thread, but I finally checked out the video. I've wondered for years which version of the game I actually played back in the day. Turns out it was the SNES version. However, looking at all of them, it's amazing just how good the game looks on every single system. I understand why, b...

Re: Road Rash getting back into it.

I'm a pretty big fan of the Road Rash series, and this one is my favorite. Well, the 3DO-developed version. I put tons and tons of hours into the PC port of it. It is as good, or better, than the original 3DO version. Unlike the Saturn/PSX ports. I used to play it with an flight stick, oddly enough....

Not sure if you guys are familiar with it, but The Cover Project is a great resource for printing your own covers and stuff.

Re: ebay - WTF Man

Found an article from 1999 announcing those exact CD-Rs coming out. Also found a thread talking about buying them on sale at Circuit City (RIP) from 2001. So that gives you a timeframe on these discs. Earliest it could've been burned is late '99/early 2000. Which means it was obviously not original...

Re: Panasonic M2 Game console

I ran into something similar to this a few years ago. A guy had a copy of a thought-to-be-lost album of a band I'm a fan of. He just sort of lorded it over us. Even went so far as to do a cover of one of the songs on it, saying it sounded pretty close to the real thing. So we'd "get an idea." Eventu...

Excellent. Thanks for the suggestions guys. Question: About Wing Commander III, does it require you to have played the previous games to completely understand and get into the story?

Best story on the 3DO?

Stories in games are a big thing for me. It's part of the reason I play games - to actively take part in a story. Some people seem to think having an excellent story in a game is a "new" thing, mostly relegated to the last decade or so. That's total crap. Some people also think FMV games can't tell ...
