Funny you should mention Neo Geo, I saw one, for the first time in my life in the flesh (so to speak), in a Cash Converters store today. It was the AES CD version and was £150!

Ok, here we go.

I was honest and said I only got into Nintendo with the GCN and I love them, I simply meant I remember it all but wasn't a fan back then. I take issue at being told I'm not as big a fan just because I became one with the GCN and not earlier. Since then I've collected old games and consoles, as have ...

Well I won the cheaper one, which comes with the manual and Victory Streak but no cards, but by the sounds of it they're not essential. £7.99 plus £2 p&p sounds like a bargain to me! Looking forward to saying goodbye to my social life again.

Thanks everyone, especially 3DO Experience for the offer.

Oh don'tt worry the new system uses Wii Remotes as well.

The name doesn't bother me, haven't read any reports on that from newspapers and magazines and the like, but I know I didn't like "Wii" to begin with, but it grew on me rather quickly. Still, the controller itself does reek of them almost doing a u-turn themselves on their motion controls. I really ...

WCIII - reference cards?

I'm currently watching two eBay listings for this amazing game, however only one of them mentions that the box contains "reference cards". Both listings have the two manuals, but can anyone refresh my memory of what the reference cards were? Any scans available if they're important?

The "HDCP" column is the handicap of the hole, not your own individual handicap. The handicap of a hole ranks its difficulty in comparison to other holes on the course. HDCP 1 is the hardest hole on the course, 18 is the easiest. The red numbers don't seem to be directly related to your score. I'd ...

Retro Gamer's "Perfect Ten Games" for the Jag

So after putting up the magazine's rather strange choices for the 3DO, backed up with 3DOKid's knowledge that the person putting it together didn't actually research too hard into the so-called Perfect Ten, here's the ones they've selected for the Jaguar. I have absolutely no idea what these games a...
