HI The title your are looking for is called "Nissan Over Drivin' GTR" And was released on the sega saturn , I think the 3DO version is just the Japanese version of N4S. I own "Nissan Over Drivin' GTR" and can say that it is fun if you just wanna drive nissan cars with need for speed tracks. I guess ...

Wow, you guys really know your games

I'll take a wander around the virtual house when i'm feeling mellow. I have a stack of other weird named titles that i'll try, like N.O.B. which i'll have to comment on.

I predict an entire evening of 3do game testing ahead

Love Bites, Life stage, the game?

Hi all So i noticed that i own a game? called love bites. I'm not reviewing but just mentioning. Does anyone else have this cd? I got mine from a collection i bought years ago and thought i'd test it last night. It seems to just be cheap nasty FMV of hookers dressed as vampires. Anyone left this one...

Yes,

I own Mysteria and played it through. It's actually a pretty good rpg which i got years ago in a box of titles, for $10. Give it a go with a bit of patience as it is a bit slow to start. Actually i'll put it on tonight and revisit,,,

The worse game ever? In the arcade, it was this 3d character in a prism with mirrors on all sides, I forget the name but it sucked big time. It kind of looked like indiana jones, the gameplay was non existant, just a 3d tech demo. MTV Skateboarding for the Dreamcast , Any Tony hawk skating fans out ...

Does anyone know exactly what laser an FZ10 takes? I'd love a replacement for my ntsc model.

Also, any links to schematics etc. No-ones successfully done a 50/60hz mod, as we know, some pal games suffer the worst letterbox effect ever,

Hi

Ive listened to what the members here have said and ive gotta say the Silver TDK's work perfectly, and i've also noticed it make no differnce on my FZ10 if i burn @ 4x or 52x.

Maybe the rule is don't use golds or real cheapo's that look virtually transparent

Hi Even when they where new, it was more common to buy an NTSC model from the states. Many people i know don,t even believe that I have a PAL FZ10. I was lucky to have bought one years ago, They are definately a rare machine here and the games more so. I was also lucky to get 19 titles from ebay. Ac...

Australia is a PAL zone but my tv can handle ntsc just fine. I share the same psu with both and im guessing thats the problem. Since we r 240 volts i switch over the psu from the pal one to the ntsc one. Im taking a guess that the voltage on the pins to the mobo may be different? And thanks, i can e...

long time owner, less time user

Like totally hi to 3do ppl

Right, just found the forum so thought i'd join up since ive dusted off the 3do. Addicted to the horde, excellent title.

So, 3do has to be your favorite console to join up? News to me but apparently the 3do is now my fave console,

Great site, useful posts
