Re: Recent 3DO Purchases

Congrats on getting Iron Angel of the Apocalypse, too. I played that one via emulation, thinking it wouldn't be any good, and it became one of my favorite 3DO games. Since then I've been looking to buy it legit, but I've yet to stumble on a reasonably priced complete copy.

Re: Was There Ever Supposed to be a ShockWave 3?

Interesting question. Without further evidence it can probably be assumed that the developers hoped that there would either be a third game or an add-on pack like Operation Jumpgate, so left the ending as a sort of cliffhanger. Did EA want one though? Well, they didn't even bother to port 2 to the ...

Re: Magazine tidbits

To be honest, you have me wondering if you're one of those people who calls gaming magazines unreliable because of changing release dates and such where they're simply reporting what the game publishers have said.

Re: Review - Strahl

Yeah, and the endings are all extremely short. Plus, if I remember correctly they're all simple variations on three main endings, but I could be wrong about that.

At any rate, it is the most fun QTE game I've played, not that I've played a ton of those. Was worth getting for me.

Re: M2 Games: Killing Time sequel?

I forgot to follow up on this, but the January 1997 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly confirms that Battlesport was coming to M2. From the sound of it, it would have been an enhanced port. I still haven't seen any screenshots of the game, though, so most likely it didn't get too far along in develo...

Re: Magazine tidbits

Some more info on 3DO games which actually turned a profit... Seems that Battlesport was one of them. The April 1997 issue of Next Generation tells the tale in a feature on Cyclone Studios. Here's a link to some scans of the article.

So I finally got around to installing 4DO on my new computer so I could get some screenshots for my 3DO reviews. The trouble is, in apparently still further confirmation that Windows 10 is the least functional operating system ever created, 4DO won't boot. Not even an error message; the wait icon sp...

IIRC constantly shooting drains more energy and some of the enemies that can hit you drain your energy too. I don't remember exactly how far into the game is level 6.

Guess it's time for a new thread on this game since the old one hasn't had activity since 2007. I've popped in this newly acquired sucker and have been having a blast with it. The sense of speed and near-constant need to watch for the next turn is exhilarating. The cutscenes are painful to watch, bu...
