I don't know how normal people thought of the system, but as a kid I always though it was "that cool system I'll never get" because of the price. I put it up there with the likes of big screen TVs, and surround sound stuff. It just wasn't gonna happen.

I got mine at a local shop here in Murfreesboro TN called Game Trader. I usually go in there browsing for Sega CD games, when I saw a 3DO hidden behind the counter (not on shelf). I asked how much it was, and he said it was $60. It didn't come with a controller, but it came with Demolition Man, Shoc...

I think back in those days, people didn't grasp the concept of using a game machine for more than just games. It wasn't worth the price for this "newfangled hi-end media thing". As far as mainstream acceptance goes, I think. I don't think people really warmed up to the concept of a console doing mor...

Resident Evil 5 is pretty fun. I'll echo the popular sentiment though. RE5 takes the "evil" out of it. There's hardly any more puzzles, and it's not as dark. (it was never too terribly scary in the first place, but at least it was dark.) While it's a fun game, I think they've left behind some of the...

Are you using S-video?

I have a 20" Philips set to 4:3 mode (so it won't stretch things out). It doesn't look GREAT, but you can tell it was pretty spiffy for its time. :P

You will see video evidence. However, they have the option to cage it up, so I'll be doing that.

The things are kinda expensive under my budget.

Representing 3DO locally

In about a week, we will be having an anime convention called MTAC [Middle Tennessee Anime Convention] and there's now an Import Gaming room. In the thread on the official forums regarding that subject, I joked around saying that I could bring my 3DO with the import Sailor Moon game. I got an email ...

The policenauts pilot disk is kinda neat. I don't know any Japanese and I was still able to test out all the little features and see character art, and some interviews.

I'm not sure what the "Game" tab is for though.

New 3DO owner, what do I need?

I've only had my 3DO for about a week, and I don't really know much about the thing. I'm not really part of the whole 3DO fandom , nor am I a hardcore collector or anything. I suppose I'm making up for things that I missed out on in my childhood. Get me started. I have a decent selection of games al...

Youtube seems to respect copyrights for "other things" like music artists and such. If you did get enough people together, I'm sure they'd HAVE to do something!
