Battle Chess question...

During the battle sequences, do you control your piece, or just watch an animation play out??

If you are gonna play Twisted solo, I've found it best to just let the computer pick a row or column on the gird. That way it's a surprise like it would actually be if you were playing against a friend. Just let the time run down, and one will be picked at random. It's not the perfect setup but at ...

Can you play Twisted: The Game Show single-player?...

I've had this game since I've had my 3DO (it came with it), but have never tried it out. I just watched a video on Youtube, and it seems like it's multiplayer only.

So, is Deathkeep really bad, or just not as good as Slayer?? Depends on who you ask. Heck, according to Racketboy's list that was just posted, Deathkeep is better than Slayer! The sense I get from listening to Deathkeep's detractors, though, is that they find the game not so much bad as just too ha...

Yeah, there isn't any gameplay in these instructional discs. Most are also very short.

The Meat: A great deal is made of 3DO's high hardware price, but this mistake is overrated. First of all, the initial street price was $599, not higher myths that are often reported. Within a few months, I negotiated with Panasonic to bring the price down to $499. i call bullshit on this, it was $6...

Quarantine looks like a really sweet game, from the footage I've viewed on Youtube, but I've heard that the steering controls are slippery-and that would not be a good thing.

Star Fighter was a bit easier with the flight stick when I tried it. The regular controller input is just way too sensitive and the framerate too low. Bad combination. Even so, all the games are easy enough with a regular controller, and I don't like the hassle of getting out the flight stick and c...

How much does the 3DO flight stick benefit gameplay??....

I'm curious as to whether or not there would be any improvement using this flight stick in a game like Shockwave, which is brutally difficult, IMO. There are a lot of 3DO games where you can use the flight stick, so I'm wondering if it would be worth getting.

Mass Effect question...

I have a 360, and REALLY want to play this game, but am personally turned off by some of the sexual content that is in it. So my question is this: can you avoid it in the game, or is there a mission (like in GTAIV) where you have to go through something like a strip club?
