Re: Running out of ideas for a 3DO homebrew...

I find the 3DO lacks in a couple genres that were so prominent in the generation just before it: Run and gun games Shmups (both horizontal and vertical) JRPGs Overhead shooters Beat em ups Devs back then weren't content with just making a quality game, it instead needed to push the tech, but alas th...

Re: Review - Strahl

Nice review! I keep meaning to sit down with Strahl and give it a good playthrough. How many different endings are there? There are 48, good sir. And they depend on which order you clear the stages in. You also get different "cut scenes" telling you about your civilization's progress depending on s...

Re: Recent 3DO Purchases

Agreed with your description of Mazer. At the time it struck me as something like a cross between Smash TV and Shadow: War of Succession. It's a bit janky but very playable. I have fond memories of that game because just as I finished it, my wife got home from a church sale with ~10 boxes of qualit...

Re: Recent 3DO Purchases

Is this double-posting?

I just got in long boxed copies of Iron Angel of the Apocalypse and Mazer. Mazer is actually sort of fun. It's like..... Isometric Smash TV with a heavy dose of Mortal Kombat in its presentation.

Re: Review - Blade Force

Thread is dead for 9 years, but I actively looked for the Blade Force review to remind everyone that this is the single most over rated game on the 3DO. (Or it might be on par with Captain Quazar...but I feel like the latter did not get as much hype) Not that it's bad, but it's clearly a frustrating...

Re: Review - Strahl

I got my hands on a mint copy this year and I had a lot of fun with it. I like that the controls are displayed on screen. I wish Space Ace did that. I was _stumped_ after realizing I had beat the game in one sitting. Took me about 20 minutes. But I ran through it 3-4 more times and it was just as fu...

Latest acquisition: Creature Shock.

I had been looking for that one for a while. Now if I could only find a damn Casper in long box

Re: Introduce yourself.

Hey guys. It's me. We're probably on 12 different 3DO FB groups and sub-forums together :) I'm the one who posted reviews of reviews on AtariAge and Facebook if you seen those. So I'm a 37 yr old 3DO enthusiast hailing from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Had an FZ-1 as a kid, so I have that nostalove for...
