I'm pretty sure the game is almost entirely pre-rendered video, like say Rebel Assault and Cyberrace. You can control your path down the track a little but not much. A lot of 3DO games work like this. It was part of the times, and I think 3DO was built to run this kind of video more than it was desi...

I suggest you all watch the TekWar TV series. It has to be the ultimate mid '90s experience. :D :D

The outfits. The VR stuff. Every other sentence includes "cyber" and "surfing". :wink:

A lot of people thrive on urban legend and don't like to think for themselves or go against the grain, of course. Evidence of that is everywhere, not just on the web. I don't know very many people who have even used a 3DO. I'm an all around gaming fanatic so I try to sample everything. But I don't r...

Kolibri on 32X is the finest shooter of all time so 32X beats Jaguar, I'm sorry. That game is just pure curiosity while at the same time being surprisingly fun. :) 3DO is the embodiment of all that was wrong with many game developers during the early/mid '90s so it has a special place in my heart du...

Well it's not like Saturn was a really great design. :D Sure it got the job done but wow just the dual CPU setup alone was a huge pain in the ass. Even today they can't get multithreading going very well in games and today you have every platform needing it and have insanely more advanced software d...

It looks fine on my giant plasma. You just have to sit at the proper distance for these huge TVs and hope the TV does deinterlacing of the signal in a decent way. I giggle at the thought of what somebody from 3DO's time would have thought of playing consoles on TVs as big as they come today, and wit...

I'm running one on a 50" Samsung plasma TV. It's surprisingly good IMO. It deinterlaces the output well. I have to use composite instead of s-video because my TV lacks s-vid, but I've never noticed an improvement with s-vid anyway. Are you on a giant CRT TV? That's the only way you should have scanl...

I have some more info on this old game. I was following it closely back in the day as I am a trek fan. I got all of the other Spectrum Holobyte TNG games and wanted this one pretty badly. http://thumbnails25.imagebam.com/6755/b9e03c67549310.gif http://thumbnails26.imagebam.com/6755/396b2267549314.gi...
