Re: Wireframe Polygons

I think the 3DO is going to be able to do a wider variety of texture maps because it has 1gb vram which is faster than regular ram and the Jag has no vram. I dont believe it would be able to do as wide a variety of textures as well. However I think if the Jags HS:CD were really reworked to max it ou...

Re: Soccer Kid

Can anybody make a side by side comparison of the Jag/3DO games? Like they do with the Saturn/PSX? I would love to see that. I want to get Soccer Kid after Ewhac and Gammadev were playing it. One of them really loved it and so now I want to get it.

Re: I confess ... Cybermorph is actually good.

Its a decent shooter/flyer game IMO and back in 94 it was impressive with all the polygons flying around at you. There was not much like it at the time. And some of the bosses they put a little thought into with their weaknesses and such. I remember stopping at one spot where I had gotten where the ...

Re: Review - Ruiner Pinball

That is about it as far as demonstrating any sort of console strength though.

Not bad single player once you get into it either. As for the graphics, they are bitmaps which is why they are m...

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...
