Top Scratches, the bane of Retro Gamers and CD's

Hell Yes, you read my title just right, Top Scratches are HELL! How many here buy used games? Be careful or you may get yourself a disc with top scratches. Know how to tell? hold the disc up to light with the label side away from you. If there is a part of the silver part of the disc you can see lig...

Re: This is driving me nuts... (3DO Samurai Shodown port)

I can actually understand SNK's rationale. Licensing ports to other consoles earns you money, but on the other hand, you don't want to create your own competition. But while I understand it, I don't think it really makes sense. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't get the sense that a port being arcade-per...

Overall, its simultaneously frustrating and damn well annoying :? Word! :lol: Back to the Soldier Pad. I wonder why Capcom chose the color schemes for the separate ...

Re: Killing Time PC patch for Windows 7

Hmm, I have never actually played the PC Version of Killing Time. Perhaps I should track it down and try it. I know I have seen it and checked out the differences between it and the 3DO game, so might be worth playing anyway. Having a patcher like this is useful except that I am running crappy Vista...

Re: Doom on 3DO

A lot of the homebrew scenes idolization in the Jaguar community comes from largely, such a small library with so few good titles so anything that does come out gets gobbled up quick. Maybe the 3do does not attract much homebrew is because there is a relatively large and excellent library for it. A...

Re: Giving Killing Time another chance

I agree with T2KFreeker. Killing time is an excellent game from what I've seen so far. I was initially put off buying it as is seen it described as a pseudo sequel to Escape From Monster Manor. So I bought EFMM first and thought it was more a tech demo than a game, I got bored of it very quickly. I...

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

Well, after playing D last night, I can tell you that my set up isn't exactly perfect. It was cool to play the game again, for sure, but on this set up, the game is Ugly as Sin!

Re: Doom on 3DO

As much more popular this system was than the Jaguar I am surprised there is not a more active homebrew scene. It looks like even the Jaguar may soon have Chocolate Doom ported to it. How accurate are the emulators for 3do? From what I understand, they are pretty good, actually. I wouldn't know as ...

Re: Seal of the Pharaoh
