Greetings all! I'm Trev, from the States. I am very excited about this new forum, and hope it takes off like the cd-i forum has. Although 3DO is my fav system, I love all videogames. I own over 20 systems, and counless games. For 3DO, my game list is 100+ and growing. I love the fact that 3DO has n...

Hi 3DO Kid, great job on your blog site, I found out about it through that RetroGamer magazine issue. The games I've got probably aren't rare by your high standards, so unfortunately there's no Firewall or anything like that in my collection, lol! I've got a fw Japanese games such as Virtual Stadiu...

I gotta ask, don't you think Space Hulk crosses the line from challenge to frustration? Don't get me wrong, I like the game, but It is one of the most difficult I've ever played. ....mumble mumble.

but even if you prefer the latter it is worth playing on 3DO, since many of the missions are altered. That would be a reason for me to not even try the 3DO version. ;) I only ever played a demo of the 3DO version, the full version is sitting on my shelf, still factory-sealed. :D OPEN IT. NOW.

I am bidding on this game right now, so hopefully I can do a direct comparison soon. Any ideas what this game fetches? What is a fair price? Anyway, I happen to agree that there is more than a passing resemblance. I got a copy recently. Ahem - don't look into that too hard - when did I cover it on ...

Re: Saved games & The Horde

I was looking at copies of the Horde on Ebay, but I remember reading that the first batch of discs that were released had a bug that deleted all the 3DO's save files. Anyone know how to identify the fixed version (short of trial & error) I just can't bring myself to purchase the Saturn version. ......

Re: 3DO/CD-I ports

Since many of us here are part of the cd-i forum also, I'm curious what your thought are on games that appeared on both platfroms. Which system has the best version of each game & why? I am most curious about Mad Dog I & Creature Shock, which I thought were awful on the 3DO (Mad Dog because of the ...

Yes, I'm sure. I'm a big fan of the Wing Commander series after all. :) The PC version can be played in 640x480 and looks amazing then compared to any other version. Might be that the 3DO version had better quality FMVs, but that's hard to compare, as artifacts caused by a video codec are much easi...
