I would add, that a new 3DO is far cheaper than the going rate of Luncienne Quest. I would not hesitate to play CDR's. Just use best practices when making these CDR's. Burn at 2-4x, not 48x or whatever. Really? I got lucky on my deal but usually used 3DOs seem to go for $150+. Even at the Potland R...

Well there is no telling what might yet be with Duranik and the Jag. They say they are watching the Impulse X sales to see whether to move forward on the Jaguar. With what, I do not know. impulse X is a simple but polished looking arkanoid. Not sure many Jag people are going to jump on that. Perhap...

I'm slowly going through these monster manor vids. I love them! I'm on part 7. Or level 7. Fascinating about how they took the PSX version of NFS and dumbed it down to make it a different game. Does this also apply for the PC version? I can see now why the 3do version is considered a better game. Th...

I really love the Haunted Manor video blog. Very interesting! Especially how maps are built using a linked list type of setup and how the 3do can do this for free with its GPU and the PSX gets bogged down by this sort of thing. Fascinating these differences of these older systems. There are probably...

I have a lot of things to say on this, but not really in the mood so ill keep it to just one major thing.. Back then you had different games for different consoles.

Does anybody else think that the gaming scene isn't as exciting as it use to be in the late 80s early/mid 90s? I can't describe why but it seems back in the 90s with the new formats coming out like CDrom and 3D the industry was taking chances with new formats and gameplay and it was more exciting IM...
