Advice on selling 3DO stuff

I've got a bunch of 3DO stuff to sell, since I have a lot of duplicates or games I simply don't care about. I'm unsure how to go about it, though. Perhaps someone would be kind enough to offer some advice? :) Should I sell it all in one big auction? I don't intend to throw the 3DO itself in there un...

Alone in the Dark 2, obviously because of the dramatic shift from the first. I still like it, though, after getting over the ol switcharoo.

Thanks! I indeed spent a considerable amount of time on it. There were some long nights! I've stepped away from active development, and I'm happy to report that I didn't get any hate mail over this. 4DO's in a very good state to either continue development or use as a resource for new emulators. I'd...

Wow! I had no idea this was true! That sucks! I had tried several different buttons but could never keep track of all I'd tried, so I assumed I missed it.

I think Player 2 gets different color schemes, are those also ineffectual?

It's a very good port. However, they changed the game's theme quite a bit. Instead of the RTS Puzzle-Platformer cover-based shooter MMO it used to be, it turned into this weird, vapid Choose-Your-Own-Adventure. Right? I can't believe they left out my favorite cut scene on the YouTube version! The p...

I don't know if you're in need or a way of identifying arbitrary files or discs, but would the "game Id" system from 4DO help your efforts at all? I could help you recreate the logic if you're interested.

Lost Eden is a great game that should be in any 3DO owners collection. The only possible knocks I could give it is that it gets repetitive, and it is also very easy (especially with a built in hint system that basically tells you what to do) But it's worth it for the visual splendor, the incredible...

Some would say that FMV were the death of the console. Honestly, I thought the FMV games weren't the worst part. A lot of them were pretty darned inventive. I liked them at the time and even today I don't seem jaded by ones I'd never played before. Well, except Wacky Races; good god what a bad game...

Star Fighter was a bit easier with the flight stick when I tried it. The regular controller input is just way too sensitive and the framerate too low. Bad combination. Even so, all the games are easy enough with a regular controller, and I don't like the hassle of getting out the flight stick and ca...
