This may sound stupid, but there is probably a text document that comes with it telling you exactly how to have it set up. I haven't done it myself, but I hear it's not difficult.

But how is it bad compared to the even setup? Neither seems more difficult to control than the other. Two analog sticks and a bunch of face buttons regardless, heh.

I just bought a 360 (again) last week so now I'm looking forward to the new Castlevania and Splatterhouse games. It's still up in the air as to whether these will actually be good, but we will see..

The quality of the video on some of the 32X CD games (Corpse Killer in particular) was quite good. Unfortunately, the CD games themselves were just ports of games that weren't very good to begin with. It's really too bad considering they had announced non-FMV 32X CD games like Alone in the Dark, Des...

Coincidentally, the local independent shop happened to have a complete copy of this game. I went ahead and snagged it.. Honestly, it looks nothing like I remember, so I was apparently thinking of a totally different game. Not sure when I'll be able to give this one a go, but I'll be looking forward ...

I should try this game again. I don't recall having fond memories of it, but it's been so long since I last tried it that I don't even remember what it looks like (and what I do see via screenshots looks completely foreign to me). With all the praise it gets here, it wouldn't hurt to try.

Yeah, I admit to resetting the game a few times before figuring out this is how the video is *supposed* to be. I seriously thought I kept accessing a hidden option by accident.

I always tend to feel a bit of peace when my cell phone breaks or dies. It's like it's one less thing to keep track of. Of course, being so used to having it on me at all times, I get it replaced quickly.

So, the main difference seems to be a code not working properly. Not a biggie, I suppose. One of the first things I noticed in the PS version is the overall framerate being smoother. I don't mean the 3DO version is choppy, though. I suppose the best comparison I can make is, say, watching an America...

Gex - 3DO version versus ports?

So, I hear a lot about how ports of 3DO games to other platforms are rubbish. From the details I've heard, it makes sense. However, Gex is usually lumped into that category as well. I've been playing it for the PlayStation these last few days (first time I've played any port outside the 3DO game), a...
