Having a list helps as well. Especially one you can access from your phone.

Which editions do you need? I have 1 complete set but a lot of duplicates, probably even with CD's.

Yaaaaaayyyy.. Well, except that the seller thought it would be a good idea to slap Priority Mail stickers on the cases (the one on Striker doesn't even go across where the case closes! Slacker!!).

You need to do one of your video reviews of 3DO Defcon 5. Unlike most people, I really like that game.

I've already contemplated that. :) I'd also like to tackle some other 3DO obscurities, like Short Warp and Flopon World.

I will need to give this one time and really try to figure it out. I had it for the PlayStation back in the day, but like most people I couldn't figure out what to do and didn't care for it much. According to a few posts I have read here though, apparently it becomes enjoyable once you start making progress.

Just found a relatively cheap copy of Ultraman on eBay, so I'll hopefully be receiving that one in a couple of weeks as well (coming from Japan, so it will take longer to get here). :)

I'm looking forward to finally trying it out! The series has always been somewhat cheesy, but strangely enough I do actually have fond nostalgic memories of the SNES version. I also had the Saturn version, and while it was a lot more goofy than the SNES one in comparison (clearly modeled to look like the TV series), it was basically the same in terms of gameplay execution, which surprised me. Looking at videos of the 3DO one, it seems like it too is along the same lines, and pretty similar to the Saturn one. :)

Yea I grabbed a copy as well seems to be a seller with some good deals on this game.My copy arrived quick and popped it in right away,I spent the night blowing through most of the game modes.

I found the game pretty tough on its normal setting but too easy on the easy setting which I was dissappointed in the balance there.At first the controls are pretty horrible and dont get much better,but you cant button mash you have to time your sluggish moves in order to get any fighting enjoyment out of it.

On a side note I give this game a 2 out of 5 Goldstars.
-The FMV footage is lenghty and satisfying.
-Ultramans finishing Death Ray is awesome.
-Ultraman getting all up close and personal to your screen before each battle is a trip.I usually make myself laugh by shouting out funny remarks to this.
-2 Players (cool)
-Fighting Mechanics are near unbearable
-Fans of Ultraman,Cheesy fun or Collectors should warrant a purchase
-Others steer clear as this may not be the gem your out for.

** Sorry went into a slight review of the game, but its cool that our 3DO zen brought us together.lol **
Here to stay.. ;)

If you don't have the booklet/cover & need it I believe I have an extra somewhere.

It should have it, but it doesn't quite look perfect. This is the one I purchased: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ULTRAMAN-POWERE ... 46040309c7
