Re: Recent 3DO Purchases

Anybody know anything about MAS Super Pro-Sticks? I found one at a trailer park yard sale, and at this point I'm pretty sure it's for 3DO. (The guy said he thought it was for Genesis.) There's two plugs - one looks exactly like the one on my 3DO controller. The other one must be for daisy chaining. ...

Re: Alone in the Dark vs. Resident Evil

My Saturn is unmodded, so I have to use an Action Replay cart to play imports. Deep Fear is one of a handful of multi-disc Saturn games which, due to the mechanism used for saving progress between discs, cannot be played to completion using the Action Replay cartridge.

It also had a lot of weird Japan-only releases. Most of your major players released SOMETHING for it. And yet, no shooters.

It's from Burning Soldier. It's also in Wangan Dead Heat/Highway 2000 for the Saturn. They really got some mileage out of that music.

Trip'd is a hidden gem. Not so hidden maybe, but it doesn't get a lot of talk and it's good. Yeah, Trip'd is pretty good. Unfortunately, 1P solo Trip'd is almost coma-inducing. As soon as it starts getting intense, you move up a level, the bottom rows are eliminated, and everything slows back down.
