Mmmm, doesn't sound right - pretty much every samsung tv sold here in Australia from the late 90's was NTSC compatible

Most likely a promotions/marketing tool to showcase elements to other arms/branches of Time/Warner and partner companies - an absolute brilliant find - it's unknown stuff like this turning up that makes 3do collecting so rewarding

Damn! How'd I miss this thread? What a "twat" - and yes we still use that term in the colonies :lol:
I've got to go all patriotic and say Shakey Jake as my preferred character - and as for that auction maybe bitrate could elaborate on the item?

All agreed , most people just didn't "get" the intended feel of the game - I still play it now and consider it one of the purest and best racing games ever.

I feel exactly the same about their sister mag - Next Generation .It was an intelligent breath of fresh air and a healthy indication the industry was growing up.However, I can never ever forgive Edge for their glowing review of Rise of the Robots. From that moment on they could go die in a hole.

Most common problem on goldstars is the ribbon cable - see my thread on it. Goldstar did release an Aussie version - but you'll pay around $ 100 , nice buy though if only for the amount of games. Let me know if you run into problems.

Unlike Underground the Run has country and snow sections but retains a cheesy storyline.
