I finished watching these a few days ago. It's rare for me to make time for such a lengthy series*, but it's 100% worth it -- these videos are just jam-packed with inside information, funny anecdotes, cutting observations, technical knowledge...great stuff. I wish we had transcripts of them, can we hire a closed-captioner or something?
A lot of the questions that came up in the other thread were, as Martin III predicted, answered by the later videos in the series. But I'd still love to know more about that canceled project (Planet Hopper?), and the alleged myth of the $700 price point for 3DO consoles (you mentioned at one point that it's bogus).
I'd also love to know whether what I've read about the 3DO OS is true, i.e. that there's absolutely no way to bypass it and bang directly on the hardware. Some writers have claimed that the 3DO can't be pushed as hard as it might be because of the OS. Have you seen the page with the guy who overclocked a 3DO, and allegedly got better framerates from certain games?
BTW if it'd be useful, I have my notes from Level 10 for your prep work/pre-playing. As I recall, the lower-right (4:00) entrance on the inner circle leads to the talisman, and the upper-right (12:30) entrance on the outer circle leads to the exit. Everything else is a red herring, though the pair of southeasterly exits on the outer circle have a stash of health/ammo that can be useful if you can manage the enemies.
Oh, and while it was good to hear some discussion of the vibrant Atari 2600 homebrew scene, I'm 99% sure the VCS Doom that was mentioned in an early video is a total fake -- no one's done anything remotely close that I know of.
Also, in your discussion of the 3DO Zone forum name (which was like nails on a chalkboard to one or both of you?), I think you've overlooked a far more obnoxious mangling of the console's name: "Three-doo."
My fiancée and I will call it that as a joke from time to time, and even made up a little song to the tune of the Stonecutters' theme from the Simpsons...
*(I do trim off some time by downloading the videos from Youtube and watching them in VLC at 1.25x speed or so, which works well -- the speech is usually just as intelligible, and if I miss something I just go back and slow it down.)
