    Panasonic were supposed to make a profit off the hardware, and to be fair to 3DO and its manufacturers loss making consoles hadn't really been a thing before the 32-bit generation. Also, I think the...

    Space Hulk might be a good example of the 3DO OS's multitasking abilities. On the 3DO and Windows versions you can bring up the tactical screen which smoothly expands and covers the 3D action while...

    Yeah, it can go higher as long as the thing's being scaled or rotated aren't taking up too many unique tiles. Games used tricks like vertical and horizontal flipping to avoid drawing too many.

    It depends on how many unique tiles of scaled graphics are being produced by the ASIC. AFAIK the main issue is that all graphics generated by the Mega/Sega CD have to be copied into the Mega...

    Mixed feelings about this game. The driving stages look nice and the soundtrack's really good, but the platform sections are quite cheaply designed gameplay wise, and they're grainy looking. Also, if...

    The big character change that stood out to me in ECCD (apart from Shadow's much more conservative costume) was the overhaul of Midknight's moveset. He was interesting in the cart version, and his...

    I just did a quick test of Grandia and unless it's something really subtle the logo looks pretty much identical on Mednafen, Xebra, and, from Youtube footage, the PS3. Does it display differently on...

    I agree, Mednafen's Saturn progress appears to have been the work of one developer. Stand-alone Mednafen's not exactly open source in the way a lot of emulators are anyway. Yes, the source for the...

    Unless I'm misremembering things in my old age, in one respect it's certain, which is what I'm referring to. If the AI taunts you, you lose the ability to do special moves as your inner strength...

    Yes. IIRC the cart version had basically no combo system, flagrantly cheating AI, and just didn't play as well overall. It's still a flawed game, but I prefer it to the original.

    The Mega CD Disc Format specifications. Some of the contents confuse me though; I'm not sure whether I'm being dumb, or whether there are some typos or translation errors.

    The Mega/Sega CD's spec for compliant discs is weirdly conservative. I'm not sure of the reasoning behind it, especially as some of Sega's own games exceed it. The documentation says that it's to...

    Also, Panasonic didn't own the 3DO or get much, if any, of the licensing fees. It had to be sold at a profit which was why it was so expensive initially, and would have limited how much money and...

    Never heard of this one at all. 20 minutes of FMV from the Firearm movie! A quick Google suggests the "movie" was only 35 minutes anyway.

    To be fair, those examples are all in the cyberpunk genre (or perhaps proto-cyberpunk in Blade Runner's case) while Cobra is not, so it won't have the same atmosphere or aesthetics. I really do think...

    I'm sorry, $129 is the cheapest option for new pre-orders? After the total fiasco this has been so far, are they joking?
