Not impressed with either of those games. Is there only one weapon in Monster Manor? If so that is pathetic, I couldn't play that one at all.
My random 3DO post...I bought the system specifically for Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo and built a home arcade cabinet using a 3DO just for that game. I took apart controllers and wired them into arcade controls.Some of my favorite times on the system included:-Alone in the Dark (great music, and I just thought it was fun. In hand to hand combat you could cancel a kick and punch into each other for a 3 hit combo). This game was like a cross between the Kings Quest games and Tombraider.-Star Control II (two player melee battle was a lot of fun, pick this up and play against a friend if you haven't)-Return Fire -Doom (yes it had a low framerate, but the music is spectacular, just far better than any other version. PS1 Doom is really great however, but different, and I enjoy both versions) Doom was simply so much fun on all the platforms.-Battlesport (playing with friends)-I had fun with the pack in games Crash 'n Burn, and Total Eclipse.-Need for Speed was fun-Playing music CDs on it and watching the visualizer play.-Having a headphone jack on the control was a great idea I thought.And the game that was SUPPOSED to come out, but never did, The 11th Hour... I really wanted to play that game.
So, this must be the first demoscene demo for the 3DO.I am one of the programmers and I am happy to announce, after working secretly for it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UhHLPjJCWsISO hereI am new to the 3DO and I am also looking for more resources. I might either do more demos but thinking seriously about homebrew gamedev. I am really curious right now to see how much the hardware can be pushed, I identified many bottlenecks and faster ways to do things, burning many CDs on the real hardware (because the emulators do not emulate at all the bottlenecks of the GPU). There are still many things I don't understand, and I was thinking to join some of the forums and discuss about programming. I joined the 3DO Zone forum but I still wait for activation. Also the Freedo forum the same thing and I can't even read the messages there. So, anyone responsible for these forums that can do something about it?
Excellent stuff, possible a story line that hasn't really been touched on in true deep capacity as regards to some of the great companies who produce some great games, this been one of them on the 3do. Would make a great collective feature I would most definitely read.But for now the piece of excellence will have to do. Cheers Shadowrunner for revealing it. :113:
