"Phoenix" Emulator 2.3.1

I've been looking into another emulator that was very recently updated. I believe Altmer (originally from FreeDO) is the main contributor to it. http://www.arts-union.ru/node/23 I don't know Russian, so I've had a hard time using this properly, but I have been able to get a game to load. If I've rec...

Re: List your top 3 sound tracks for 3DO

1. Lost Eden
2. Guardian War
3. Alone in the Dark 2

Lost Eden stands out above the others, in my opinion. It doesn't fit into the typical adrenaline boosting music. It had the benefit of being a slow paced game, I suppose.

I like most of the others mentioned too.

Yep, Killing Time 2 , you're in a haunted South American hotel built with Nazi funds (yes there is at least one in Argentina) , unravelling the secrets of the Mayan calendar along the way , only to inadvertently start the end of days. I'd play that. Seems pretty good to me! The Mayan idea is a good...

I'm really liking the "Kid Soccer" idea. POed 2: the angry chef has taken yoga classes and evaluated the error of his ways through introspection. Therefore he is no longer POed, and we use a new title: "Remorseful". If we do Immercenay 2, we can't go back to Perfect. It was destroyed! So we'll have ...

The type of content in the videos is definitely going to make it harder to discern which has better video quality. I think both systems (Saturn and 3do) supported 320x240. Unless someone knows better, I don't think any of the 3do videos made use of the pseudo 640 resolution option. I think that for ...

Half-baked Sequel Ideas

Has anybody ever dreamed up half-baked sequels to 3DO titles? For example: Blade Force 2: Everyone's favorite helicopter-powered police officer takes to the skies yet again. Play in two player co-op mode with the strong-and-sassy female counterpart (with a pink suit). Beat the game to unlock the Bla...

I've noticed a difference in quality between 3do games for sure. The bad quality videos you see might just be because of the amount of compression used for the video. I know there were also several different video formats available for 3do developers to use, but I'm unsure if this accounts for any q...

I played through the game to completion about a month ago. I get the feeling I never beat it before, because it goes on for a very long time.

Pics are up. I kind of missed out on FMV games, myself, as I did virtually no gaming from 1992-1997. (Yes, I know we had FMV driven games before 1992, but there were relatively few of them, especially high profile ones.) I didn't end up discovering such games existed until a few years ago, so I'm s...

Urg. Don't do Quarantine until you already have enough respect for 3do to ignore how unsettling it is.

A wild guess is that it may have been Immercenary.

I thought the term sounded familiar, but it was off just a bit: the term "Psi Warrior" gets used once in Immercenary.
