Zombies? Well Hell, what happened there? I don't even recall seeing Zombies in the game either. Perhaps there is another build of the game out there with the Zombies? Now it's time to see if we can dig this up. Perhaps there was another version of the game and they changed it before release. That ac...

Re: Probe, the lowest bidder?

Sorry to hear that PR for JagCD is a sloppy one. Especially as I believe it is pretty rare/expensive too. More of a collectors rarity I guess, huh? How does it stack up next to the 3DO port then? Do you happen know? We have actually talked about this extensively in the 3DO section and also tore it ...

Re: Upgrade cartridge?

All this M2 talk still makes me sad. I remember how excited I was when they were touting the system for the E3.

Ah yes, the old comparison videos. As funny as it is, I always liked the color schemes for the Saturn version of this game much better than the Playstation versions. I also think that the HUD and map look nicer on the Saturn as well. I guess you could say that the texture and color blending is a bit...

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: Upgrade cartridge?

Let us say that it did come out in the Summer of '95 and it only cost $100. Do you think it would have saved the system? That, indeed, is a great question. The answer is actually a very easy one in the end, it would depend on what games were released to support the add on. Historically speaking, th...

This was what EGM and many other gamers assumed the M2 was going to be originally. There was talk that the M2 would plug into the expansion slot of the 3DO system upgrading it to a 64 bit machine. If my understanding is correct, this was actually originally the plan as the 3DO was supposed to be the...

Unless your games are actually not working properly, don't do anything. All you'll be doing is risking causing further damage by trying to fix something that isn't even a problem in most cases.

Couldn't say for sure, but I think the 2 million figure is much more credible. For instance, consider the fact that the Saturn sold about 9.5 million units worldwide. If you take into account that the Saturn's market availability lasted longer than the 3DO's, especially in Japan, and the Saturn bei...

Re: Top Scratches, the bane of Retro Gamers and CD's

The label idea probably will work as well. My only worries would be the texture of the glue reflecting the laser somewhere else (probably not a real problem) but also it would make the CD's weight off center. That sticker, while not weighing much, will put the CD off balance. Yes there are clamps t...

I wouldn't know what to tell you about the CD's themselves.

AND, they also make Magazine storage boxes as well! So,...

I have gotten Audio CDs to work again by using a black marker on the top.

You know, after some research, I have come to the conclusion that you might be able to use silver VOID stickers on the tops of your disc to save the game.
