Actually, as far as I know the 3DO had the best FMV of any version. I think the pc was only half the screen size (think early sega cd, but w/higher resolution)

I would pay a king's ransom for the last 2 issues of 3DO magazine (wanna sell, fish? :lol: ) I've always wanted to read their reviews on Luciene's Quest & Robinson's Requeim. Were they rated highly? What other info is in the last 2 issues?

Game reviews

I just posted a game review and would like some feedback. Is anyone interested in these? I have several written from earleir that I could post if there is an interest. I have a few import reviews also. Is anyone else writing game reviews?

I never knew that about the Goldstar machines. How do you tell which version you have? (I'm guessing I have the latter since mine runs problem free) 2 machines in 1 yrs time ... no wonder Goldstar stopped production of their 3DO model!

A few that I recall off the top of my head are Myst, World Cup Golf, & some of the ALG shooting titles. If you have any of the 3DO Game Secrets books, they list which titles are compatible (I'll have to check to see what I am forgetting) I do use the mouse from time to time, but If I was not a colle...

All awesome games (although I think you really need 2 players to get the most enjoyment out of Return Fire) A since Fifa was mentioned again, I gotta say I prefer it much more than Striker (not a bad game mind you) I just think it is better looking & more playable.

I agree, Microcosm & it's sequel Novastorm both stunk up the 3DO (although Die Hard Game Fan gave the latter it's shooting game of the year award :? so some evidently get a kick out of lousy games) This is the first time I have ever heard of Daedalus beig on cd-i ...

3DO/CD-I ports

Since many of us here are part of the cd-i forum also, I'm curious what your thought are on games that appeared on both platfroms. Which system has the best version of each game & why? I am most curious about Mad Dog I & Creature Shock, which I thought were awful on the 3DO (Mad Dog because of the s...

Saved games & The Horde

I was looking at copies of the Horde on Ebay, but I remember reading that the first batch of discs that were released had a bug that deleted all the 3DO's save files. Anyone know how to identify the fixed version (short of trial & error) I just can't bring myself to purchase the Saturn version.

If the results could be similar to what has happened w/the Atari Jaguar, than I think it would certainly be worth it

I am bidding on this game right now, so hopefully I can do a direct comparison soon. Any ideas what this game fetches? What is a fair price? Anyway, I happen to agree that there is more than a passing resemblance.

Wasn't 3DO magazine a European publication? It was/is a great source of 3DO info, much better than it's American equivalent, 3 magazine.

I've heard from some that the Goldstar player has trouble reading certain discs. Has anyone ever encountred this? Sometimes my Japenese games take a few attempts to load (mainly Virtual Stadium Baseball) but I've never had a game not work at all.

I gotta ask, don't you think Space Hulk crosses the line from challenge to frustration? Don't get me wrong, I like the game, but It is one of the most difficult I've ever played.

Maybe because early on, both Cd-i & 3DO were focused on being more than game machines. Both had 'interactive' in thier names. Much of the early software were not games, but other titles. For 3DO, it was Software Toolworks informational cds, the Learnign Cube cd's, video cd's like Toon Time & Woody W...

After months of drooling over pics of all the hot EA & Studio 3DO games, I finally got my FZ-1 in late '95 or early '96 (can't remember exactly).
