Hello Mate! Welcome to the forum!aoinightsatan wrote:HI! to every 3do soul
i'm a new 3do fan that was hiatus for some time
thanks to the 3do kid my interest for the 3DO grow so i finally arrived here and after reading some topics in the forum (i read everything in this one) i decided to register....it's a pretty cool community that you guys have made congratulations for keeping alive the 3DO legend
thanks to guys like you the classic gaming will never die and for me that's enough to be proud. that's why i'm here at least...there's another 3do follower registered in the forum haha so for statics it's good isn't?
about myself, i'm from Mexico, Mexico City to be exact, i guess i'm the only one from mexico?....who knows haha
i can say i'm a collector....but someday when i make some money then, maybe i will began to buy stuff....although i have a lot of stuff i guess....i have consoles like sega saturn, pc engine, dreamcast, NES,SNES, master system, ps2,xbox (my bastard child), gamecube(yeah well...f-zero was nice) sega cd, 32x, coleco, atari 2600 and 7800 and well some more i'm looking forward to get an amiga cd32 and a neogeo AES...yeah of course i got a 3do FZ-1 and FZ-10
shame on me but i bought my first 3DO in 2003 on a flee market....here in mexico there are some "types" of flee markets where they usually sell garbage haha...really! so when i saw it, i can't believe my eyes! a 3DO FZ-1 and seems in perfect shape!...i bought it very cheap...for about 15.00usd without controllers.....that's funny because the first thing i did to test the console was with a game i downloaded from the net...the console was working but now i needed a damn controller....here is damn hard to get anything 3do related...i wouldn't say impossible....but sure damn hard yeah!
so i had to wait like 6 months when finally a friend of mine went to japan...i knew that in japan 3DO accesories are easy to find so he got 2 controllers thank god! (and yeah i could buy some controllers via ebay leave me alone!)
haha that's the history....i always want to be able of experimenting the 3DO, so i'm doing it right now...pretty cool software so far, but thanks to the press i was blind about the quality of games that a 3DO could offer....is a little similar with sega saturn...the press was very bad with that system....saying that the damn console couldn't do 3D and silly stuff like
i don't know why, did you guys think that sometimes the video game magazines could be anything but not informative
well i guess that's all and sorry for my spelling and grammar...my english is very bad
I think you are right - i don't believe we have anyone else from Mexico - we have one person from just about everywhere else though!
You're right about the Press, in some respect they did all jump on the 3DO, the low quality of some of the games didn't help either. I'm glad you are enjoying it and welcome to the forum!
