Which version of Gex stands out above the rest?

Playstation vs. Saturn vs. 3DO

I've only ever played Gex on 3DO and briefly for the Saturn. I remember being impressed with the Saturn port although I still prefer it on 3DO version. I heard the PS1 edition was lacking in certain areas. Thoughts?

Could 3DO hang with Saturn ports of the Vs. Series & SFA

As I play my copies of SamSho vanilla, SSFT2:GMC, I can't help but wonder what Street Fighter Alpha 1 & 2 would've been like had Capcom ported them over to the 3DO. I would relish in the prospect of enjoying the X-Men: Children of The Atom on the Real Interactive Multiplayer. Get chilling Virtual Au...

I never considered Optical Out for anything else besides my 360 which is currently attached to the television.

Playing your 3DO via converter/upscaler/line-doubler?

If so name the device or brand of adapter used to channel video through your Real Interactive Multiplayer; or Sanyo or Goldstar, which ever 3DO faction you belong to. Here's mine.

Console: Panasonic 3DO FZ-10
Converter: XRGB-3 unit (Micomsoft)
Method: SCART RGB > VGA

If your burns are crappy but still manage to play than yes. But lets face it, the chances of a poor burn working on a 3DO are pretty slim. Everytime I tried to play SSF2T it sucked. It would or wouldn't start and if it did play, it would skip after long durations of gameplay. I burned this game a c...

Didn't realize the 3DO hardware was so fragile. Looks like it's strickly 3DO pads/Sticks for me. Does Hori produce custom Arcade sticks for 3DO? I recall reading this on a forum some where.

Can a Sega Mega Drive/Genesis Controller be used for 3DO?

They have about the same lead points. For experimental purposes I plugged the Genesis cable directly into the 3DO and it fits. Only problem is the controls aren't registering, how to make it work? Also, can a Genesis/MD Arcade Stick function on the 3DO by extension? I want to play fighting games in ...

Super Street Fighter II' Turbo/X:GMC looks better on 3DO via RGB mod than it does Dreamcast. Dreamcast is missing Gex too along with Need for Speed, Sailor Moon, Crash N Burn, Eye of Typhoon and a few other gems. On the other hand 3DO is missing the good stuff in DCs library. :( Also, I'm not sure b...

Guess that settles it then, there's nothing unique about either of them outside of the text (winscreen/endings) and title name.

I'll just play my American copy. Though it is odd they would leave out the blood for Panasonic's system and not the other versions.

Both of you should fire up the Panasonic and insert your Japanese copies of SSF2X:GMC. Press hard/fierce punch on any character and see if blood comes out. That ought to do the trick. I would pick Vega/Balrog and Blanka (Headbite Grab ==> + HP) just to make sure. Chances are I'll stick with the Amer...

So your on there too Austin? This is great we are long lost brother-shmupers! XD

Shmups are great, I tend to play casually as to not wear out this genres novelty. Ashame they didn't release any single disc shmups on Panasonic's flahship legacy hardware. That would have been epic.

For whatever reason when I insert a burned game now, it takes me to the CD insertion screen. Last night the console allowed me to play as many CD-R's as I want.
