You could always swap out another 3DO power supply. The FZ-1 was built modular, so it simply unplugs. Slap in a new one and you're good to go.

Howdy! --------------- First off I have seen links for an adapter that allows you to use your PSX/PS2 controllers on your 3DO. Which brings me to my first point/thought. Do these things work??? If so, is there a reason why we couldn't hook in a standard generic light gun (say for the PSX) through th...

Third World War was a cross between an RTS and a 'business-sim" Panzer General is a more straight forward strategy game. The biggest up is there are alot more vehicles and the maps are bigger. The interface needs work. Perfect General was ok, but not thrilling and pretty easy by comparison. The ligh...

This game is quite fun for such a simplistic game. Twinkle Knights at the 3DO Collective The power of an item is based on the 1-10 system. 1 being weakest, and 10 being the strongest. However, 10 is countered by 1. So even if you use a 10, if your opponent has a 1, they'll beat you. Taunting (the LI...

LOL! It's true. Though there is a code for the SNES Game Genie to re-enable it. It just couldn't be fixed by the time the game went to press, so they just disabled the move.

Sad, but much like with SHADOW's manual, CLAYFIGHTER's packaging went to press before the game was done.

If you look at the actual program for SHADOW, it's even more laughable. Very basic input, and very shabby overall design. Why? Because it's unfinished. Even the music is unfinished.

intresting that you're so intrested in it. The only thing that seems to link the two is the advertisment. Other than that, it seems like a bunch of fan drawings. Now production stills and working preview video, that would be intresting. As it is, it's not worth 1/5 the price.

Intruiging. There are so few AO games from Japan that are worth your time. However, you should probably look into the Photo CD adventure titles. there are TONS over there. Interactive, or just slideshow.
