I have heard (and seen) conflicting information regarding the Virtual Console on the Wii. My suspicion is that the VC titles are emulations from the original release ROMs, as I noticed that all the bugs and glitches that were specific to Super Mario Bros on the NES in 1985 are present in the VC edi...

I just read about it at http://www.Oldergames.com. It is on the main page. I think all of the forum members should support this. Even if this particualr title isn't that exciting (I wasn't a huge fan of the original Icebreaker myself) it can open the door for other new or unfinished 3DO projects, m...

Me. I'm interested. Are they American Mags? I love American game magazines. We get a couple here in the UK but not many. I always think that American Journo's write more to the reader, where Euro mags speak to a crowd - if that makes sense!

... Of all the systems I've owned, I'm most fond of the 3DO, which is the one platform I've maintained a large gaming library for. I'm not particularly sure why, but the thought of the 3DO just makes me all warm and fuzzy. The moment I popped in Road Rash the day I brought the console home, and hea...

Hi, Just found this forum through 3DOKid's posts on AtariAge. It would be great to have a few more consoles at the Jagfest this year. I've just got started on the 3DO.

Ah yes, I read your thoughts of the game on your blog. Honestly, I have not spent enough time with it to form an accurate opinion, but I think it has potential. I really think you should play the game more than once :roll: before writing it off. Possibly. I think I gave the game a fair crack of the...

I'm kind of interested in this. I remember reading that it would only work on his 3DO dev system and he would be happy to let others play, as long as they are happy popping round to his house.

I guess things have moved on - which is great news.

Do you have a link?

Thanks!

I have the D2 demo that came with:

3DO Live! Disc 10

and that's it.

Disc 10 is by far the most revealing of the ones I have!

We could do.

I've always found it hard getting Game Guru to do anything. Even with the advanced cheat. I tried to get Alone in the Dark 2 to give me more life to no avail.

I don't think any of the Admins will ban people for reviewing hardware in the game review area :)

I don't have much hardware. I have a few consoles and VCD player but that is about it. I'd be interested in some points of view on things like the light gun and the mouse etc!
