Concluding a 2-part solo series focusing on obscure and failed CD-based consoles, Ed takes his 3DO off the shelf, dusts off the cobwebs, and delves into some of the music from games exclusive to the platform. There’s a lot to be explored here, with some extremely unique and memorable tunes that you may be hearing for the first time! From games with rockin’ music like Autobahn Tokio, the atmospheric dystopian beats of Iron Angel of the Apocalypse, or the playful industrial of Gridders, you’ll find a bunch of surprises and maybe a few new favorites!
