I bought my FZ-01 in '93 and the controller works just fine, so does the others I got from trades and sales. The Jaguar controller can be good but mostly it seemed to be clumsy, especially if you don't have the overlay, personally I've found the best standard controller (not counting joysticks and ...

I have never had a problem with the Panasonic controllers. I hear about people saying they had to loosen the screws but they've always been fine for me. Maybe it was a European thing? Actually, the original release 3DO controllers were a bit stiff, but they seemed to get a little better later in 3D...

I would put EYE OF TYPHOON just below SAMURAI SHOWDOWN in terms of playability, but equal to Sailor Moon on overall graphics.

I think Freedo suffered from the same fate as DreamSNES did. A lot of really impatient people demanding results makes it less and less fun or interesting for the programmers to do. Other projects and (god forbid!) real life get more and more attention until it just makes perfect sense to kill the pr...

Nice collection, I've only been about to find about 10% of my mags so far.

Character Icons

Just a quick thought, anyone interested in a collection of user icons from Eye of Typhoon? As you can see from the one I use, they're quite detailed. Converted them a while back, and they've just been sitting on my HD.

I found the PC version of the 3DO HAS Steering Wheel. Convertible if you want to take the time. Mostly just misc games I've found at thrift stores and flea markets. But I did find a 3DO beta on a CD spindle at a garage sale. Just a ROAD RASH beta, but best 10 cents I spent that year probably.

I believe there are either 3 or 4 more. Sadly the last one (which I believe you have, I'll when I'm home tonight) is mostly faked up, with poorly drawn images regarding the coming m2.

The MadCatz 6-button is my fav of the 3do controllers, my only complaint about it would be it feels brittle in your hands, though it's surprizingly durable.
