  1. I've heard conflicting reports on CD conversions of Mortal Kombat II. Some go back and forth over 32X and Saturn being best, though I've only ever played 32X and Super NES. Are the load times the main issue?
  2. One of the Dungeons & Dragons title required the 4MB cart though. Why not Street Fighter Zero 2, or Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo? Would be like a middle-finger to both Super Nintendo and 3DO.
  3. You're making a reference to Airplane!, aren't you? I approve.
  4. This is fucking awesome, man. Great to see that it has a proper title now. Looking forward to when it's released.
  5. LMAO! I have no idea, but.... Damn! Volcana's pure fire. Were there any pics taken with Buzzsaw?
  6. Not to just jump in here, but I love Ultra Vortek. Visually, it's like an Iron Maiden album cover come to life. Control wise, I'd sooner compare it to Virtua Fighter for it demands more precision than Street Fighter II. The music, 90% of the time, is fantastic. Heavy metal/industrial sound. The finishing moves are awesome! Just as over-the-top as Mortal Kombat, but with more of a sci-fi edge. Unlike Kasumi Ninja, you can't really 'jump kick' your way to success, excluding the final boss. He has no legs and jump-attacks are best served here.... Long and short, I'd say it's worth a try. I enjoy Kasumi Ninja in spite of its many - MANY - flaws, but Ultra Vortek is what I grab when I want a polished game with legitimate challenge.
  7. Oh fuck... Not Power Crystal. *shivers*
  8. I forget where I read this (possibly HardcoreGaming 101) but it's been said the creator of Another World didn't care for 3DO remaster either, though I'm not sure how accurate that is. I like 'em. Wouldn't want it to be my only option, but still. As for Thrusty, it's lookin' damn good. Very cool to watch how the project's evolved since that first test video. Wish more developers did this.
  9. Would've liked to have seen an update of Combat in the vein of Defender 2000. Digitized sprites for the background and tanks. Make a single-player mode so you can go up against computer controlled opponents. Provide a variety of tanks (I'd say at least four) with differing 'armor', 'power' and 'speed' stats. Include hazards like exploding barrels, pits of acid or flame, and road spikes. Power-ups that provide temporary invulnerability, speed boost, weapons boost, etc. Vibrant explosions. Also, rotary support.
  10. Perhaps. After having played the Genesis, SEGA CD, SNES and 3DO versions, Jaguar still looks the best of them all. Resolution's better and colors are a pinch more vibrant. Jaguar makes the rest look muted and soft. I mean, if it could have looked better - something a kin to 3DO's remaster of Another World - I'd be all for it. If I have any complaints with the Jaguar port it's the odd bit of slowdown in certain parts (SNES had a similar issue) and music's been shuffled about (again, much like SNES). Otherwise, it's the version I play the most.
  11. Accurate. @CyranoJ That reminds me, are these sprites 'final' or place holders? Forgive if it's been mentioned already.
  12. @Sporadic Dude, the work you guys are doing with Doom is phenomenal. You already know I'm loving the progress you've made with NotOutrun and Crumbs. I know you're gonna' knock this shit out the park.
  13. True, though I'd accept it, just as I accept Virtua Fighter on 32X. Doesn't live up to its arcade original, but it's still a blast to play. Kind of the same for T-Mek.
  14. It's either/or. I don't know. I'm not a coder. Does it really matter though? Say it's possible, then great! Who would do it? It's T-Mek. Haven't encountered too many people crying out for that one.
