Re: 2017/9/4: 3DO: Twisted The Game Show

Always glad to see more 3DO reviews, even if it's a re-review. I remember having a modest amount of fun with one of these sorts of games on the 3DO, but I don't recall if it was this or Zhadnost. (Probably it was Zhadnost.)

Re: Nokia N-Gage/Tapwave Zodiacs it the Sega 32X/3DO/Atari Jaguar of portable gaming?

ThePixelatedGenocide, there's always room for disagreement about this stuff, but you don't need to repeat "The 3DO was badly designed" over and over again to us as though you're lecturing a roomful of idiots. Please be civil and courteous; it's not like the world needs more of the opposite...

Re: 2017/8/12: Super Nintendo: Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter

Unholy Night looks pretty awful, I'm sorry to say. Kid Shoryuken on YouTube has a scathing review of it, which I found out about via his review of Shubibinman Zero, another recent release (though dating from 1997) that seems like a far more rewarding game.

Re: Nokia N-Gage/Tapwave Zodiacs it the Sega 32X/3DO/Atari Jaguar of portable gaming?

But according to Digital Foundry John Linneman, he said the 3DO had trouble with 2D games at 60FPS which was unusual at the time because of the frame buffer issues, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ni13xjHvwu4 95% of 2D games during that era where 60FPS FYI. So that meant the 3DO hardware was diffic...

Re: Nokia N-Gage/Tapwave Zodiacs it the Sega 32X/3DO/Atari Jaguar of portable gaming?

3. Even though the N-Gage and Zodiacs handhelds where more powerful, they where all more difficult to program for then the GBA/DS/PSP which where much easier to program for/had better optimized hardware. The same thing was for the 32X/3DO/Jaguar compared to the SNES/Genesis/PS1/N64, etc. That's not...

Re: Guide to Removing Smoke Smell

Unfortunately, for some of us the odor of dryer sheets is much more offensive than smoke smell, because the perfumes used in those sheets can trigger migraines, itchy rashes, or other illness. It's probably not likely to happen with a manual since I don't wear it or bathe with it, but fabric softene...

Re: Aladdin Deck Enhancer (NES)

Actually I reviewed both Dizzy games, not realizing I had already reviewed one of them. I'll probably meld the old and new versions together. Ah, got it! Well, it might be fun to include information about the differences between the two releases of Dizzy the Adventurer if you're up for it, as they'...

Re: Aladdin Deck Enhancer (NES)

So it looks like you've already reviewed most of them, basically speaking...? To elaborate on this: Bignose Freaks Out - already reviewed (review itself seems to suggest it's the Deck Enhancer version) Dizzy the Adventurer - already reviewed (Deck Enhancer version) Fantastic Adventures of Dizzy - n...

Re: Aladdin Deck Enhancer (NES)

Based on this page , it sounds like the Deck Enhancer games are essentially identical to their standalone cart releases, except for Dizzy which has faster character movement and more stars to collect, plus the 10-inning bug in the Quattro Sports baseball game. So it looks like you've already review...
