20 Years of 3DO - in Brazillian Old Gamer Magazine

This is the cover of the next edition of the Brazilian magazine OLD GAMER.
the picture speaks for itself. However the article, rather than the one that 3dokid recently written on the same subject to the Retrogamer mag does not appear to be pro-3DO at all.

I did my pre purchase and will receive on the mail half of this month. I can scan and post the article here if you guys are interested.

WOW, I LOVE that cover! I hope Retro Gamer has the same one. If not I'll kindly ask for a 300/600 dpi scan. I'll have to wait to see if the covers match though.

PS. Any idea how much it would cost to mail a magazine from Brazil to the United States?

You can count on it, this is a promise :wink: .

About shipping costs, you can calculate in the website of the Brazilian post: http://www.correios.com.br/internaciona ... efault.cfm

I was gonna say the same thing. It even beats the snazzy cover used for the North American versions of Gex. (And certainly kicks the snot out of the covers they made for the Japanese versions. **shudder**) Sorry to hear that the article isn't pro-3DO, but I guess there has to be balance in the press. Plus, I can see how Brazilian perspective on the 3DO would be much less positive, since a huge percentage of the 3DO's games are either very USA-oriented (e.g. Gex, Snow Job) or very Japanese-oriented (e.g. Tetsujin, Oyaji Hunter Mahjong).

Well guys, I'm happy to say I was wrong. The article is totally pro-3do, and I must say very complete. The report covers from the first movements of Trip Hawkins in apple, until the bitter end of the project 3DO and the M2.

There are 32 pages full of information. I promised scans of them, but I found a PDF version of the magazine, complete with great resolution to you download here (this way you can even try to translate) :D : https://mega.co.nz/#!89QC1QKK!NHTYRQzMX ... SfD67FWv30
