I love the pal Jewel cases! Some of the art is far superior to the long boxes we'd get in the states.

Awesome 3DOKid! I was hoping to one day take a look at your stash. Your magazine lot looks pretty minty too.

Thanks mighty high-praise-indeed from you :)

The Magazines are pretty good. You have to read them from issue 13 down to issue 1, because otherwise it's just too depressing.

C'mon folks - show us you gear !

7th pic down, low left hand corner, I want this game complete for the case! Plus did the cover of Digital Dreamware remind anyone else of (the arcade game) I, ROBOT?

I don't even consider this a collection or consider myself a collector. I got all this stuff used probably from ebay except Star Fighter. I was able to snag a new copy of that from some liquidation site. I have the long box elsewhere. I also have the oldergames discs but I feel ashamed to have that collection of CDRs :( even though I have copy 10/50 of the decathalon disc, it doesn't even mean anything really. They prolly just burned up a whole pile more of them. Ok I'm going off topic here, this is is all I have.

ok I pruned a bunch of posts with us just babbling on, and to satisfy some of those posts requests I bring you um... boxes.

Image
Black folder is a 200 disc and he blue one is a 60. I found a longbox for Imercenary after I took the photos.

Image
Memory unit on the very top (on a Saturn box), the white box on the bottom with Jap text contains a Sanyo 3DO.

Image
Thought I'd give you a quick shot through the door of what will become my game room, I didn't feel the need to shoot the rest as it's mostly boxes full of stuff you can't see.

Well I did more work on the room and there is grave news, the majority of longboxes were ruined. I had a leak in another room this winter and I thought they were safe but they are soaked and covered in mold. So the only longboxes I have left are the ones I already had out. Those in the photo and Imercenary & CPU Bach are the only remains.... *sobs* but on the bright side I had pulled the games out of them already.

Even some of my Nintendo boxes got damaged.

*runs away to cry*

Space Hulk is safe (thank the 3DO gods) my Road Rash box became mush along with the manual, the others I never had the long boxes to.

Well I just started mine up again last week so all I have is the following.

All the games except Myst and Wing Commander 3 came with the system in a lot on ebay.

On a side note, I read somewhere that the games play better/worse on certain 3DO's. Is that actually true? Are the Panasonic's better than the Goldstar? Is the FZ1 better than the FZ10?

Goldstar unit has been known to have issues w/a few games. Most notable is Space Hulk (close combat has been known to freeze it up) EA offered an exchange option back in the day on that game.

Perhaps a couple others, but I never had any specific issues w/games running on my Goldstar unit ... although its life expectancy does seem shorter than either Panasonic model.

FZ-1 seems to be the unit of choice on this forum.
