I need a 3DO

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, but i don't see any selling/trading/marketplace forum on site. anyway, I was forced to sell my FZ-1 last winter when I was unemployed and desperate, and I am looking to get it back. I prefer an FZ-1, but I'd be happy with an FZ-10 too. If anyone has one of ...

These are educated guesses from decades of experiencing video game markets: Publishers watch trends and some types of games sell better in some parts of the world than others, and right or wrong, ALG figured sales would be poor outside the U.S. becuase those foreign markets aren't profitable for FMV...

I'm a fan of Mega Race, never tried the sequels (are they PC). But "race" is a misnomer, it's sanctioned "road warriors" on tracks instead of open road, kind of like the re-make of Death Race 2000. Not original, the same type of games were around on the older 8- and 16-bitters I'm sure, thought the ...

Jaguar cartridges save preferences to sound on/off volume, etc. To reset your cartridge to default (music on) press the pause and # and * keys at the same time. Pressing pause during gameplay should allow you to access volume and other stuff by pressing the a. b and c buttons while paused.

Hey guys! Sounds like I'm needed here. Yeah, some guy was claiming to be the best in the world at NFS on the 3DO and I had to prove him wrong. I am. And willing to prove it anytime.

Almost exactly a year later I bought the Jag CD. Then I found out t...

2D shoot 'em up. A R-Type clone. Amazing, considering the popularity of the system in Japan, but not one decent 2D Shooter made it on to the system. Sure, we have Jurassic Parks galaxian clones and Puropon World had a 2D shooter but what I wanted was something like 1942 or a pre-cursor to Ikuraga.....

No games age badly to me, they are either good, bad or average to start with, and stay that way permanently. I hear you, I do.
