OOOH. THE NEW ONE? HOW IS IT? I really wanted to see that one but I couldn't ever get the time to swing to the theater. I love the Muppets.

I thought about seeing it until I saw all the hype around it. Maybe I'll wait until the end of its run when the theaters will be empty.. :lol: Seriously though, it peaked my interest slightly. Gave me the notion that maybe it was sort of an Americanized "Battle Royale". Man that movie was messed up...

Anyway, what did you think of the flick then, Trev? I haven't heard what anyone's opinions are on the movie yet. Much better than I thought it would be actually.

I'll probably end up seeing it at some point in the near future. A buddy of mine absolutely loved the books and he's been pumped about the movie for a while. If I hadn't heard of the books and they used the same trailer that they are now, there would be no chance in Hell that I was see it. The trail...

Sports Games

So I've never been a big fan of sports games. I've got nothing against them, I just can't play them very long without getting bored. From what I've seen, played, and heard from other people though, the sports games on 3DO are generally pretty good. I've played FIFA and Madden and I used to really en...

I'm a really big Futurama fan. It's probably one of my favorite television shows that's ever aired. Among the many fantastic quotable lines from the show, the following little conversation has always stuck with me. Fry: Why is everyone wearing those rings? Amy: Guh!

In short, developers had to adhere to limitations and standards imposed by 3DO in order to ensure that the games they developed would be compatible on every 3DO unit. I think that's how it went, anyway. Huh! Ya learn something new every day, I guess. It makes sense, I guess. It's probably the only ...

A couple weeks ago I payed for a 3DO and a bunch of odds and ends. About 10 controllers, 2 mice, 2 joysticks, a bunch of boxed games (only one sealed: Immercenary). 80 games in total. I'm unsure which are of significant value. The main reason I got it was for the joysticks. I'm going to try to emul...

Re: Games that could reach 3DO's limit

But SNES port is downgraded one... could 3DO handle with arcade perfect? And maybe I'm wrong and SF3 / Garou aren't impossible for 3DO after some sacrifices? I'm really not too familiar with arcade hardware or anything, so I can't say either way that Alpha would be tough, but it'd be a heckuva lot ...

So could 3DO handle with early full 3D shooters like Quake, Terminator: Future Shock / Skynet, Goldeneye 64, Jedi Knight or Turok? Or at least, with the most adv...

But I was reading up on it some more and seems that some places will not sell games if it does not contain a rating.

This is just speculation, but I would assume that the law had not been put out that require the games to have ratings. It was probably right around the corner though and it would probably be better at that point to show that you support the idea of game ratings rather than do nothing. Not only that...
