Re: Best picture quality? How do you 3DO?

Yup it's quite amazing how good of a picture the 3DO puts out with S-Video! Back in the day I just used the standard composite cables, I'd say about 5 years ago I switched. What a lovely picture it now has. 36" Sanyo CRT.

Re: Blade Force?

Ok so I gave Blade Force another try yesterday and I'm finally making some progress. What I needed to do was destroy these small box-like objects that cause walls to disappear. Once I figured that out its been plain sailing. I've managed to defeat 4 bosses already so I reckon I should complete it t...

Re: Total Eclipse

3DO TOP FIVE. I love this game. The graphics and soundtrack were SO ahead of their time. The control is really pretty decent and it has a fair difficulty level. I purchased this game right off the store shelve almost immediately after it came out. I was completely and utterly floored at the quality ...

I would test the cord first... make sure that it's giving power to the console properly. Just test for continuity (make sure it's not plugged into the wall of course). You'll have to open it up and look for the power circuit on the motherboard. See if anything appears fried, see if there is a blown ...

Welcome! My opinion is that WCIII is a great game. For it's time it was un-believable. It blew my mind. The acting is also really good for a game of it's time. Had several good actors in it too. Had FMV followed in this direction I think it would have been more succesful.

Haha nice. I remember sitting in Mythology reading a game magazine. They had an article with pictures on Need For Speed way before it even came out..

That's interesting about the 3D Zero SNES adapter. I have one of those and it seems to work perfectly well on SSFII. You just have to map your buttons. I just got mine a month or so ago, maybe they fixed a bug or something. What it's not good for though is games that you cannot change the controls e...

I don't know much about the technical specs on the two consoles, I just know what I see with my own eyes. And honestly, the graphics between the two consoles both seem about the same to me.

I honestly think the 3DO could do anything that the Saturn could do. Panzer Dragoon? Sure. Especially a 2D fighter. The 3DO could do just about anything 2D really. Now I don't know all the technical specs and everything and the programming involved to do Alpha. But I am pretty darned sure it could d...

I think the D-Pad on the 3DO is ok for most games. For SFII I think it's atrocious. The Goldstar pad is even worse for SFII even though it does appear at first to be a nice pad. I honestly think the 3DO controllers kind of suck. I wish I still had my SNES adapter that I had back in the day. That fix...

How many polygons can the 3DO display per second compared to the Saturn? It seems to me that the 3DO has smoother graphics and less jaggies.
