Retro Gamer Magazine - 20 Years of 3DO

Hey all, I just found out that Retro Gamer Magazine will be including a "20th Anniversary of the 3DO" special in their September issue (#120) releasing on 9/19/13 in the U.K. and should start showing up about three weeks later in the U.S. The preview for the special mentions an interview with Trip H...

Killing Time vs. Escape from Monster Manor

How would you say the frame rate compares between Escape from Monster Manor and Killing Time? Is Killing time more laggy? If so, by how much? I was playing KT today and the frame rate seemed borderline unacceptable to me. I know there is ALOT more going on technically in KT than in EFMM and maybe I ...

B.C. Racers - Version Differences?

Hi all, Just picked up B.C. Racers (for the 3DO of course). Though the game can get quite pixelated (especially while zoomed out), I was actually impressed by the character designs, background art style and how vivid and clean the colors were. The game chugged a little in 2 player split screen, but ...

From 3DO... where do you go?

So, inevitably it'll happen. Eventually, at some point you finish. You reach the goal. Collection complete. You could be like me, attempting to assemble a complete U.S. 3DO library. Or, maybe you're into the Japanese scene and are going for a complete set from that region. Maybe you have a predefine...

I too would keep the FZ-10. The memory manager alone makes it worth it. I have had a disc tray burn out on an FZ-1 and it was a real heart break. The pop up lid of the FZ-10 makes me worry less about having to part with my 3DO. Keep the controllers of the FZ-1 though so you can do the cool headphone...

Now THAT'S interesting. So the majority, or at least, a healthy amount will not have resolution issues? No wavy or scrolling lines when played on an NTSC system hooked up to an NTSC television?

Like Elitegamer, I collect by the mantra of why buy it if you're not going to play it. With a caveat... Employing a practice that is sure to revile most other hardcore collectors, when I buy a vintage game, I usually spend the extra money to purchase a sealed copy, then immediately open the game, pl...

This is a good question posed by Elitegamer. I think the likelihood of finding 3DO items may vary by region. I lived in California for many years and 3DO stuff was nearly impossible to find in stores. Everything had to come from Ebay. Recently, I moved to another region of the country and was surpri...

FZ-10 has much more internal storage space then the FZ-1. With my FZ-1 I would run out of space after 2-5 games. With my FZ-10 I believe I have about 12 different titles saved and I have only eaten up about 3/4 of my memory so far.
