Either way, it's a message board. It's not a life or death situation like high school lunch room seating, so I say we all just relax and enjoy hating Plumbers Don't Wear Ties together. Hating on Plumbers Don't Wear Ties always makes me feel relaxed. :wink: To clarify, just cause someone doesn't sha...

Re: No Profits

I heard a rumour, no doubt on here, that no company (EA, 3DO, Crystal Dynamics, etc) made any profit on any 3DO game. Hence the battered and rushed conversions to other platforms. Is there evidence anywhere? Back on topic though, it seems odd that if the companies kept making games for the console ...

Well, I'm pretty sure Plumbers must have made a profit. I mean, even if they only sold 1 copy for $50 bucks thats gotta be lik $45 profit.
And it still makes them crooks.

Try Big Rigs over the Road Racing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mB1zWEhgrLs I could pick out more polished, but maybe even more boring games.

Okay, so I'm working on my 3DO collection, slowly picking off the games I missing and so on, checking them off on a list. I'm trying to get some of the less common games right now so I can pick up whatever I'm missing for cheap later one. The other day on eBay, I won a lot of "4 adult 3DO Games." I ...

Not to detract topics, but how hard is it or would it be to port over or resign a game (pc/cd-roms) to be recognized by the 3do's OS? Theoretically it would seem to be a chance and at least a good idea. I really want to understand why they made the hardware virtuall impenetrable! In lieu of the hom...

The fps sections of Demo Man were probably the most impressive at the time (they still are to an extent) They don't play quite like your typical Wolfenstein type game though, so fair warning.

I also think Demolition Man for the 3DO is pretty good. The level of polish really help bring the whole package together.

I always thought it was kinda cool that they managed to port it to the aging SNES hardware. Do you know if Nintendo censored or edited anything in it?

From what I have experienced, Neo-Geo fighters are often times even more strict than Capcom's games in terms of the rigid nature of timing and how combos are performed. This is especially true of the King of Fighters series. This is so true. My brother is a hardcore SNK fan. Watching him play the K...

Smash Bros. is more of a button mashing brawler. Smash Bros also has a lot of heavy random chance with the items dropping on the field too though.

I still remember trying out Primal Rage when it was in the arcades. Probably because I've rarely (if ever) felt so gypped at an arcade. The game looked terrific, but the gameplay was so horribly shallow that it felt pointless. Needless to say, I've never been tempted to pick up any of the console v...

Would you really call Sly Cooper a mascot though? I mean, sure, he's a platforming hero but he's in a different league from Mario or Sonic in their prime. I'm not sure I'd even put Sly Cooper mascot level as high as Chester Cheetah or Joe Camel.
