Does it matter where I buy an S-Video cable from? Radio Shack has them, but they're a lot more expensive then what I can find on Ebay, for a similar length.

So, how well do other consoles from this period-like the Jaguar, PS1, and Saturn, handle 16:9?? Good question. Often, it depends on the game: On systems that support it which may be all 3, some games have the option, some don't. I found an awesome article on Racketboy that details 16:9 for the Sega...

Re: 3DO HDTV picture quality...

With my 3DO hooked up to my HDTV, I can use the 4:3 ratio, but the picture quality is not as good as it is on a CRTV. I can live with it, but would, say, buying an S-Video cable (my HDTV has an S-Video out) smooth things over? Or should I simply stick to the CRT when playing 3DO games? It's an LCD ...

Cannon Fodder on the 3DO vs. the Jaguar version?...

I assume this game is about the same on both consoles; I did look at a scan of the manual of the Jaguar version, and it does not use the keypad. I don't know when I'll get a Jaguar, so I'm wondering if there are any problems/shortcomings with the 3DO port.

I have an XBOX 360, but I am a solo game player, and have heard to stay away from the Gears of War games in single-player, because (so the argument goes) the games stink without another person to play them with-so, you'll be constantly reviving the other guy, and so forth. BUT, I LOVE third-person s...

You need the DVC to play Dragon's Lair on CD-i. The game won't run w/out it. It must be said though, that the CD-i version is better than the 3DO one. The DVC can't be beat when it comes to games like this and Space Ace, the ALG games, etc ... The CD-i version also has a few scenes not found in the...

I LOVE Novastorm on the 3DO, and I love Psygnosis shooters. So, I'm wondering if the controls, and the game play in general, are as good in Microcosm on the 3DO as their are on Novastorm. As long as the controls are good, I will put this on my to-get list.

I've viewed the 3rd pattern-the one you're supposed to use-on the video, but the problem is that it gives you a top-down view of the pattern. When you're...
