Re: Recent 3DO Purchases

Sewer Shark! I forgot that I've been looking to get that game for the 3DO. It's funny how you mention it being a big step up from the Sega CD version... I read a vintage review of another Sega CD-to-3DO port which concluded with something along the lines of "Now if only we can get a 3DO version of S...

Re: Documenting 3DO Game Contents

Don't think there's any need for you to retake pictures, Arjak. After all, the purpose of this thread is to simply make an inventory of what's in each game. Which you've done nicely.

Re: Anyone willing to give up worn out or broken controllers

I like the ALG gun, but it would be nice to have an alternative light gun for the 3DO, if only because it feels a bit weird to be using an old west revolver with games like Demolition Man and Space Pirates!

Nice. Guardian War is really a very good RPG. It's got lots of interesting gameplay twists and the graphics are quite impressive for their time.

Sounds good. I had a check on GameFAQs and their listing for the game says the music was indeed by our good old friend Mr. Trieschmann. I'll have to keep an eye out for a reasonably-priced copy.

Captain Quazar

Still haven't completely decided whether I should get this game or not. So I idly check out some gameplay footage on YouTube, and the musical style immediately rings a bell. After about two minutes I realize why.

Burke Trieschmann did the soundtrack for this one, didn't he?

I haven't played the 3DO version of the game, only the Saturn version, so the following may not apply to your version. That said... I've found that the beetles' appearances seem to be timed somewhat. In a 40 minute quick run of the game, the only beetle I saw was the last one, which always appears i...

its a phenomenal game. It's somewhat comical how long it took them to get the controls down. Not as long as it took me.
