I know the over all mood of the forum has been quite goofy lately (almost too much for my liking), but when someone is lookin for help dont leave them hanging like that. They only have two posts in and they dont know you are joking. I only said it because of this http://3do.cdinteractive.co.uk/view...

Wow Rock N Roll racing had a planned 3DO port? That would have been awesome! I loved that game on the SNES. I am almost sad I read that list! I could just imagine how awesome the 3DO version would have been with the actual songs being played instead of a 16-bit rendition. I hope a beta of that is d...

3DO Saved Files Question

When I bought my Goldstar 3DO it had several saved files on it for some reason I don't want to delete some of them without loading them up and checking them out. (lol I know it's weird) But some of the games I don't know what they are. Here are the files I am wondering about Drive (172 blocks) Gex_V...

I can see how the Neo doesn't appeal to everyone. Although I've always wanted one, the machine really doesn't have much in the way of games w/depth. Arcade games have their place, and again I am a fan, but if you want to hunker down w/an epic rpg, a classic point n' click, a real sports sim, a long...

I know I've played Metal Slug and quite a few other Neo-Geo games on an emulator. I don't know why but I just have no interest in owning one unless I fo...

Neo-Geo is one console that I have never had much interest in. Perhaps the fact that I'm not that into fighting games might help that. I don't know, I've just never had any interest in owning a Neo-Geo.

I have to say the 3DO is one of the best video game purchases I have made! I play it all the time, it was WELL worth the $5 for the system and $10 for the brand new Panasonic controller. $700 worth of fun for $15 you can't beat that!

What is your preferred 3DO console?

Just wondering what everybody's personal favorite 3DO console model was. Personally I own a Goldstar model and that is the only model I have tried, but I really do like the design of the Goldstar the best. The FZ-1 is close though. If you select other please explain.

Is it true that the early Goldstar units had the CD drive built into the tray and the later ones just had a standard CD try like a computer drive? I have the one with the drive built into the tray.

So Wolfenstein 3D loads the entire level into RAM?

I was playing Wolf 3D today and ejected the CD to play another game. I noticed that even without the CD you can still play the entire level that you are on with sound effects and all. The CD is only needed for the music once the level is loaded. Probably not too awful interesting for everybody here ...

I'm looking for a site that has screenshots for basically every 3DO game. I have been to VGMuseum but they only have screenshots for a handful of games.
