Dreamcast, form and functionality in one little white box... it's a thing of beauty!

Also mine hasn't turned tequilla yellow unlike many a SNES.

All valid points UT. My own personal use of Steam tends to be for Valve games and the indie titles. The indie titles don't require an internet connection, they play offline. Games like Defcon, Audiosurf, Darwinia and World of Goo, I picked them all up in a Steam sale where they were sold for peanuts...

I enjoy reading your anecdotes.

When I feel like I got it bad all I have to do is visit the 3DO Zone Forums to realise my life isn't that bad.

I don't stalk women, I don't lactate on ladies perfume and my personal hygiene is exceptional. I'm doing quite well :D

Steam started it by having PC gamers pay full price for just an ISO with no box, artwork, or manual. I love the old PC game big boxes. Those things are gorgeous. Now we have this. I find Steam and especially valve developed ware to be the one redeeming example of how games in the future should be. ...

I was looking at that exact auction! :D The power adapter is a standard molex connection, so no problem getting power to the unit.

Quick update here.

I just took apart one of the units and identified the hard drive as a Seagate ST11200N.

It seems to be a 50-Pin SCSI device so I'm guessing some form of Adaptor will allow me to hook this up to a modern PC.

3DO Dev Stations

So I have a couple of 3DO Development Stations which are in point of fact really really old Apple Macintosh Quadra computers circa 92' - 95'. I've tried to link them up to a display in the past but get no picture on the monitor once they're turned on. Any Macintosh types in here that can give me som...

Post 2008, the only game that really does it for me is 'Left 4 Dead' (PC Version).

I've never experienced on-line play in a game that had the drive and narrative of a single player. Left 4 Dead does exactly that for me, it's excellent.

Without being too specific and before I begin I should mention it's not a game!

I have a few protos that I'd never release, however it seemed prudent to stave off bitrot by making a duplicate on fresh media. Well worth buying a few CDr for!

That's probably a good policy for saving money! I've just started to question why I bother buying games on release.
