gonna give emulating another chance

I figured I would download the FreeDO emulator one more time and try and see if maybe I can get it working with some games this time. I only have one question though, where is the best way to get ISO images or cheap copies of games to try out?

I used a Sony Trinitron Wega for my classic gaming consoles when I was still buying consoles it actually was a kick as tv for old school gaming it had S-video and component inputs. It was also good for my Laserdiscs playback. Currently I do all my gaming on my Toshiba Laptop and the built in screen ...

and people are constantly porting 16bit and 32bit era games down to NES so why can't it go the other direction? I think it goes back to the 3DO not having the same following as Sega and Nintendo which is why you see Sonic on SNES and Mario on Sega but and everything else showing up on NES even Super...

Anything is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. depending on how you set your 3DO collecting goals, 3DO can be easy compared to other platforms. Say you just wanted PAL releases, 3DO would be a doddle compared to Saturn, SNES, PS1 etc... Well for me it would be very limited, first I would ...

OK keep in mind I had the Sega CD version I don't know if there are any differences but that could be a factor. All I remember was I never did figure out how to play it or I kept dieing too much either way that really is all I remember.

I am not really that familiar with the different models but I will say my most favorite brand associated with 3DO is Panasonic as they are one of my favorite electronics makers next to Magnavox, JVC, and Sony.

my primary interest is in Betamax, Super VHS, LaserDisc, and CED with VCD and Super 8 coming in close to last. For video games the most obscure stuff I am into is TG16, 3DO, 32X, and the Atari-Era stuff like Intelivision, Colecovision, and the like.

keep in mind that was how I felt about the console back then, when I was 12, not how I feel about it know. Honestly now being such a huge nostalgia nut and a major Atari fan I think I would love to go back and revisit Jaguar now. Or sometime down the road.

No it isn't that the way it works is you HAVE to link your Wii to a Nintendo.com account, as long as you do that they will transfer but most people are too lazy to take the extra step and register with Nintendo online. That was what they told me anyways. I did go through the steps of linking my acco...
