Re: 3DO Total Eclipse vs Playstation Total Eclipse Turbo

PSX, Saturn, DOS and even in a few cases Genesis/CD/32x/SNES comaprisons are some of my favorite topics here on the site. Gex, Need for Speed, Road Rash, etc. What I'm most curious about recently is the Saturn version of Lucienne's Quest, or Sword and Sorcery as all versions are known as in Japan. I...

Re: Fright Night.

What about Fright Night 2? I heard the DVD and even the VHS are out of print and rare so fingers crossed the remake will inspire a re-release. As far as I know, Fright Night 2 is quite good and does anything but fall for the tradition of sequels (particularly in the 80's) not living up to the origin...

Re: Games that could reach 3DO's limit

For someone who isn't an expert on the 3DO's hardware such as myself, you'd really have to use the existing games and how well they run as evidence. Doom doesn't prove anything because the graphics in Killing Time are at least as good as Doom's and that game runs very, very well. The system could ha...
