Check out the screenshots on the original sampler discs, or some of the CES material, it was very ambitious, but not really a console game.

Vivi's Salon (The manicure) caused major crashes/errors in the game. Version 1.1 was Readysoft's fix. Between the delay in BD13's release, the cost in replacement of the defective games, and the poor reception of Robinson's Requiem, it's small wonder why Readysoft went the way of the dodo.

Look for the demo disc that has a few of Killing Time's concept art shots and original name "Time 2 Die". There is a stand alone disc, and a video version on a multi-game demo.

Are we just wanting Western unreleased titles?

There is an adapter that allows you to use Genesis/Mega Drive controllers on the 3DO. I've only ever seen them sold in Australia and certain South East Asian countries. Works really well. IMHO it makes the Genesis 6-Button pad the only way to play Way of the Warrior. Even the Sega Activator worked.....

Are you using CD-RW discs? A LOT of systems I've got hate them.

When backing up my discs, Gold Kodak CD-Rs seem to work the best for me. Even a temperamental Sega CD model 1 has no issues with them.

Do you think the DC could do a 3DO emulator? ;) DC could probably handle it, but we're probably long off from it happening.

This isn't making fun of 3DO, it promotes the Dreamcast version coming out, but mentions the 4 already released versions (Sega Saturn, 3DO, etc.) and in the subscript of panel 2 the upcoming Playstation edition. A kawaii mockery of the glut of Street Fighter II spinoffs.

It's a good collection of different genres, agreed the fighting segments are bad, but better than "Shadow: War of Succession".

Lucienne's Quest was actually made rare in the US when it was recalled from stores by Panasonic on the death of the system. Its a much more common title in Japan as "Sword & Sorcery".

Not to my knowledge. Not even US testers units will boot them in either mode.

The Korean 3DO I have does boot them, but Twinkle Knights seems to have graphical issues.

Blue Forest story does require Japanese kana support. So, if your console is doesn't have it, BFS won't play. It joins the ranks of games like Twinkle Knights, some J versions of Alone in the Dark 2, and others.

Kind of sounds like 'Rise of the Dragon' for the Sega CD. The 'getting busted for not being dressed' gag was used in several games (mostly PC titles though) back in the day. Was it live action or just cartoon/anime graphics?

Eye of Typhoon is certainly a better upgrade (control-wise) from Samurai Shodown, but it's honestly just a mediocre fighting game. Very 90s Neo Geo. Load times are long for 3DO, but nowhere near Mortal Kombat for Sega CD. As noted on the YouTube video, I trimmed them down a bit so that I could inclu...
