No justice in this world.

When I got my 3DOs recently I also got a good handful of games and these included some doubles. I thought I'd sell the doubles on eBay, basically to make some money to buy more games. I sold a copy of Road Rash, with complete box, inlays and instructions and it only sold for 99p at auction. However,...

Well I've done some reading on here and 3DOkid's blog (both reviews lol) and I've deleted JPI from the current list! It was a big box game and I love the franchise but it can wait until that time many, many years into the future when I'm filling gaps in the collection ;) I'm only starting off now, s...

3 stupid questions for a Thursday morning.

Ok, I think the subject line covers this so I'll get straight into the questions 8) 1.) I can buy games from anywhere in the world and they'll work on my 3DOs, I know that much. But is there any benefit in making sure I buy the UK PAL versions? Or will the resultant game be exactly the same played t...

Nintendo had also decided to stay with carts at this stage with the N64. Yes they'd looked into a CDROM add on for the SNES with Sony, but had decided to stick with carts and the N64 was still a success, despite the CD format taking off for everyone else.

It's a shame, as I think the Goldstar is a lovely machine, but I think the Sanyo is a beaut too and it's being ignored :cry: But then again I did go with the FZ-10. Every 3DO machine is a lovely creation in my eyes, but we can't pick them all ;)

Do you mean the remodelled PSOne? It definitely looks like both PS1 models, but in particular the PSOne. But anyway, yeah I think the Goldstar until came first. But then again it would be typical Sony to rip off everyone else's ideas and pass them on as their own :wink:

It's only a 28" screen, but due to it having huge speakers down each side it feels a lot bigger than it actually is. My favou...

Haven't played 9 or 10, yet ... I may download them on VC eventually, but there are a couple other Wiiware games I'd want first. Had a check there and I was right, it's a download on WiiWare (not VC though, as it was a brand new game so you'll need to go to WiiWare instead): http://www.n-europe.com...

The early games were classics for their time ... but the series has been milked something fierce w/little innovation. The first three are certainly worth checking out.
