I remember coming upon CGR guy's reviews back when they were posted with those salsa dance videos non-stop. Then I made a joke about tasty dog yum yum yum for me eat and he blocked me so I couldn't be subscribed to him anymore. Oh well, so much for that.

I'm not so sure about the 3d rendering on the 3do. I admire your optimistic view on the 3do and if it could've done more in regards to 3d. When i go down the list of specs I see a system built to push pixels and not polys. The hardware polygon count figures don't appear in official documents, maybe ...

I think some people overestimate the graphical abilities of the 3do. It was a beast at debut. But by the time it bowed out, the launch games for PS (Battle Arena Toshinden, Ridge Racer) and Saturn (Panzer Dragoon, Virtua Fighter) were beyond 3do. No doubt though that the 3do could push some 2d and v...

The scaling in the neg-geo version is just sick, so smooth. It makes the 3do which isn't bad look choppy. I remember one of my friends bagging on the 3do version I bought back in the day. I said, is it better than playing in on Genesis? Yup. Paid like $40 for it, didn't regret a cent of it back then...

This is the way to go with emulators from the get go. Especially something with such a limited fan base as the 3do. Peoples interest goes up and down, I would imagine it is the same with coders, you just get tired sometimes. Way to go Johnny!

I'm not sure if any software would have helped the 3do. It had plenty of software, you could always have more of course. I think the price and competing manufacturers killed it more than anything.

Thanks for that little bit of gold.

Best Doom port discussion I've read in awhile.

Interesting fact, bringing up Doom for Saturn in a "but the Saturn was never properly programmed for" flame war is a bit of a sore spot in that camp. :wink:
