Merry X-Mas 3DO Fanatics!

Post by 3DO Experience » Thu Dec 25, 2008 6:26 pm

Merry Christmas to all 3DO Fans! (regardless of religious pref)

I hope your holiday is a great one. I know mine's been. I just broke the 300 game mark on my 3DO collection!
May all of your collections prosper and be plentiful!

Your fellow fanatic,
_______________3DO Exp.

Merry Christmas!

I spent Christmas modding my 360 with a new clear case and a firmware hack for a new 120Gb SATA harddrive.

And I edited my Policenauts play through on the old 3DO blog.

I also cooked some pretty awesome Yorkshire puddings!

Years from now people will gather round the yule tide log to remember Christmas' like this :)

Nice work Kid! Hey Lemmi, PM me when you decide.

Now how's this game for a ball buster, I got Guitar Hero: World Tour w/ another guitar for Wii, a red DS lite with Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia & LEGO Indiana Jones, 7 3DO games and... Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution. Naruto? come on! *sighs* Well maybe I can get the reciept and trade that one in. Lots of great games and then I was like "huh?". Ok I've seen people play this game and it's good but I just can't get over the whole Naruto thing. LOL :lol:

Merry Christmas to you all - one of the few things we get in Australia first is Christmas Day due to the Time Difference!
Lemmi - PM me anything you want to sell/ trade any platform.

3DO Experience congrats on breaking the 300 mark (I'm jealous)
I'm just about to reach the 150 mark
I'm looking for a Jag toilet (cd) in good condition to buy - they're not easy to come by in OZ
Thanks to 3DO Kid & Trev for their unwavering support
Thanks Vance for the educated arguments!
Bitrate - you rock! (mags have just been posted by the way)
Nike X your trolling of youtube puts a smile on my face
Unholy for keeping the revolution alive
WK - what a great gift to the 3DO community is your M2 work
Pits for pushing up the price of everything on evilbay :wink:
I know there are others out there who deserve a mention but I've had too many Christmas lagers sorry

Thanks to 3DO Kid & Trev
You wouldn't be thanking me if you knew your package still sat in my to-do pile :oops: Free cd-i game is yours if you want for my slowness (pm me) But thanks for the kind words!
ggggggrrraaaaar! You know I want that! hehehe it makes the Jag look like a toilet.
Don't suppose you'd trade 3DO originals eh 3DO exp? I haven't used my jag cd in prob 2 yrs.


Here is hoping '09 is an awesome yr. for gaming! Who knows, maybe lightning will strike and we'll even get some new 3DO releases.

Not sure just what I have left for extra copies. I know I have Hell & Dragon's Lair. You'll have to wait until I get home, if the right box is close to the door.

I know I'm a little late, but Merry Xmas to all !!

Another great year here at 3DO Zone (well... with the exception of 3DOKid switching sides to some other console... hahahaha).

Our numbers here continue to swell, and we seem to be getting back some of our older members as well.

Let's make 2009 even better with more Playstation... err... ummm... I mean, 3DO game reviews and 3DO hardware/software finds :D

While 3DO Kid was playing with the 360, I was playing with sealed copies of Bust-A-Move, Burning Soldier, and Guardian War.

How do you play with sealed games? Wouldn't the shrinkwrap and cardboard get in the way?

1st rule of engineering - EVERYTHING fits if you force it
2nd rule - If it doesn't - use a precision alignment tool (sledgehammer)
3rd rule - see rule No.1 :wink:

The same rules apply to most surgery and jigsaw puzzles
