Re: DAMN RIBBON CABLE IS THE BAIN OF MY EXISTENCE !!! GRRRR

I had a total of 3 Goldstars and 2 Sanyos out of action - these cables have fixed 2 of the Golstars and one of the Sanyos. Well, it seems from the thread that if you can find a correctly fitting ribbon cable, and the ribbon cable is indeed the problem the console suffers, then it is a good fix ;) T...

Re: Recent 3DO Purchases

Dunno if mine is 'Japanese' but it came from Japan and looks like all the other 3dos. None of the printing is in Japanese and it doesn't appear to be regional.

Re: Let's Play - Phoenix 3

This should be especially interesting, since it was the reverse for me. I thought the platforming sections had potential, but found the space combat to be very weak and boring. It'll be interesting to hear your take on it. Well they both had potential from what I seen. The platformer seemed less de...

Re: Road Rash getting back into it.

I'm working through both the Saturn and 3do version simultaneously. I've had the Saturn version for years and never finished it. Mostly because I take a break and in the interim the damn backup battery in the Saturn goes dead.

Re: Blade Force?

I just got this. I haven't had a chance to play it much. Got through the training and working on the first level. Been wanting to play this game for years.

The new local store has Starfighter as well. They got quite a bit of stuff at competitive prices for being local.

Re: Prince of Persia

It will be interesting to see how the Chahi endorsed Jaguar version of OOTW stacks up to the 3do version in terms of gameplay, not cut cut scenes.

If they ever manage to ship it.

Re: Review - Wing Commander III

Here in Beaverton Oregon a new Retro Gaming shop opened. They have WC3 there for 3do along with tons of other retro systems. They have it for like $22 with other games for just about every system. I'll be pissing away a lot of money there.

Re: Need for Speed ports - video comparison

We have not looked into it but we briefly raced 2 player. I think they had all the A.I. enemies included in the race. I hate it when its lone races with no A.I. in the mix. Thats what I liked about World Tour Racing on the Jaguar. Even in two player split screen it had the full compliment of AI oppo...

Re: Need for Speed ports - video comparison

I grabbed this at the PRGE for my cousins PS2. (The original, first version). I was going to get the 3do version but they wanted $35 for a either one of two copies. Both look like they had their long boxes crushed. The one that had a manual looked like it had been used for toilet paper. So I passed....
