Now i have a 3DO...

Post by JetSetWilly » Fri Jul 25, 2008 4:47 pm

what games can anyone recommend?

i like shooters, puzzlers, fps's, anything, really. but i want to get some games missus JSW can play too. so any recommendations will be welcome (and no, I'm not selling it, SirClive, you cheeky little git!!! :lol: :lol: )

another couple of questions:
a) was Burn:Cycle ever released for it? My mate had it on the CD-i and it was really good fun. if so, how much do you think it would cost?

b) Wing Commander. i already have heart of the tiger for PC, but can't get it working. Is it worth getting a copy for this and flogging my pc copy?

c) Kether: is it any good?

and finally d) was Policenauts and/or Snatcher realeased for the system and are they uncut?

cheers.

I have (and am selling if Sir Clive doesn't want them): Killing Time, Pataank, Samurai Shodown, Phoenix 3, Theme Park, PGA Tour Golf, Off-World Interceptor, and my favourite game of all-time - Star Control 2 (it's a spare copy).

I also have but am not selling: Star Control 2 (again :P), Star Fighter, Gex, Battle Sport, Cannon Fodder, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo X, Road Rash, Need For Speed, John Madden Football, Return Fire (plus Maps O' Death disc), Star Blade, and Captain Quazar, all of which I can recommend. :)

how much were you looking for each?
thing is, i wont want Theme Park as i have 4 versions of it already (Amiga, Snes, PC, PS1).
PGA Tour golf...i might be interested in, but i've got it for the MD.
and whats Star Control 2 like? (i saw a copy on the Fusion bootie and the bloke wanted 2 quid for it....should have bought it really!!!)
also, what are the other like?
and can it run video cd's?

Get Road Rash , The Horde are well worth it and MAd Dog Mcree is always good for a laugh (if you can get a gun0

If I hasd a 3DO , I certainly would get WC III , as I'm also unable to get it working on PC , but one very interesting fact I've only just found out is that Super Wing Commander was also released for the 3DO (see below linky) , and it makes me want to go and get a 3DO and a copy of the game!

there seem to be a efw copies of SWC floating around on ebay (theres a couple from JAPAN and USA.)

looks like ill be getting WCIII, then. I think ill go for Killing Time as well, as it looks interesting (wikipedia, i love ya!)

also, I've got Road Rash for PS1, MD and SMS already. dont really want too many versions, though i've heard its meant to be the best of the bunch...and i really want to get PO'ed again, as my brother had it on PS1 (until he got rid of it) and i loved slapping arses with frying pans.......erm......... :oops: :oops:

and i might need a control pad, if anyones got one spare :wink:

SSF2T is an arcade perfect port on the 3DO - just make sure you have the 6 button pads - otherwise it's a nightmare to play.

Would a Megadrive 6 button pad be compatible on the 3DO?

i was thinking that too just now. but i would imagine so, if it had the same connector with the same amount of pins.
