Has anyone here tried C&C4?

I've heard it isn't very good, although I probably wasn't going to pick it up anyway based on seven words stamped on the front of the case that will kill my interest in any game: "Continuous Internet Connection Required To Play Game"

I need help from you Super Collectors

Does anyone know if Shockwave Operation Jumpgate had a real manual, or just an instruction card?

I'm working out a deal with GameCubed right now, and the copy he has just has the card. Neither of us knows, so I thought I'd ask you guys.

Did they have any games to go with the system? I don't know about where you live, but around here 3DO stuff almost never shows up locally. If you're trying to collect 100% complete copies of games then 3DO can be a real nightmare to collect for (worse than TG16 if you're trying to complete US games ...

They most likely moved on to the new cesspool of bad acting and terrible sets with zero production values: SyFy Original Movies.

It was a PC port of the 3DO port of the PC game. It had all the voices and the added features of the 3DO version, but none of the FMV, so while I technically beat it, I still don't know what happened. :(

I still think the Orz/Androsynth stuff is really creepy.

Did anyone else keep Fwiffo with you to the end of the game?

I got into it way later than you guys. I played the free Star Control 2 copy that came with an issue of Retrogamer, loved it so much I decided to track down the 3DO version and a system. The only system I could find was a mangled FZ-10 (which I later sold) with a huge crack in the casing. It came wi...

I've been thinking of tracking down a Phillips CD-i, but I don't know a whole lot about them. I know there are numerous models and that only a few were meant as game consoles. I also don't know of any worthwhile games for the system (other than the infamous Mario and Zelda games). Can anyone recomme...

Baldies for Jaguar CD.

Great strategy game where you control the bald people and must wipe out the people that have hair. A lot of fun but you'll need a Memory Track cartridge to save.

Iron Storm for the Sega Saturn.

The best WWII strategy game I've ever played. It's a massive game with a large amount of depth and decent customization. It even contains what-if scenarios for Germany and Japan where they invade mainland America and Canada.
