This is last night's mail call! I'm stoked with this purchase. I got Cannon Fodder Under the usual prices I'd see it at and BC Racers is just a rare game to come across. It's not great or anything but at least I have it.

​I already had Return Fire, just not in the box so this one comes in at a perfect time and I'm eager to try the new missions in Maps O' Death which I never played before.

​Iron Angel of the Apocalypse The Return is the sequel (duh) to Iron Angel of the Apocalypse. I don't own the first game nor have I played it. I'm on the line to decide if I'll wait to play the original first because I heard the 2 had noticeable différences in their engines and I don't want to "ruin" the experience of the first game by playing an improved version first.

​Show me yours, 3DO lovers!.

Nice haul!

 

I haven't bothered to get into long box collecting for 3DO but this is a nice looking set.

 

What is the Iron Angel of the Apocalypse game? I'm not familiar with that one..

I haven't played Iron Angel of the Apocalypse (Tetsujin in Japan). It's a slow-paced first person dungeon crawler RPG. Here's a vid

 

​The sequel looks like it moves faster, it might be a more action oriented FPS. I don't know yet. Here's another vid

I sold off all my long boxes and only have the cd case ones left for sale currently. Been waiting for "watchers" on ebay to finally buy them. Those are some pretty good ones above!

What do you have for sale? The boxes?

The ones I have are Crash n Burn, Myst, Alone in the Dark, and Doom. All are the CDs near mint in their cases. These are the ones that I don't think came in long boxes.

I have beaten through Iron Angel and the sequel "The Return" and both were fairly bland and easy, but still were fun to play! I know a lot of people love Return Fire and I need to read the instructions to figure out what to do once you eliminate all threats on the level. I liked playing with the helicopter so you can fly over water!

I have never played any of the iron angel games but will eventually.

 

I recently picked up both Return Fire games so will look to get into these soon. I played back in the 90's with a friend and they were a lot of fun.

Very nice. I went to Retropalooza this weekend & was able to replace my damaged copy of Bladeforce in the long box for $14.00. Also got a loose copy of Flying Nightmares for free.

My buddy recently came across his old 3do at his parents' house, and didn't really want it. So we made a trade, I gave him a Nintendo mini and a stack of classic rock records (we're both vinyl hounds), and we're both happy with the deal. I hadn't played any 3do since hanging out at his place as teenagers in the 90s, so I've been pretty geeked up about it. I had actually preordered Forza Horizon 4, but haven't played more than a couple hours of it this week because I've been so hooked on Wing Commander III. This was the initial haul:

In the meantime, I informed all of my local gaming buddies that I was in the market for 3do games, and was able to pick these up from a friend of a friend and a couple of local game shops. I already owned the Brain Dead, but the others I just picked up this week. I don't think there's much more 3do stuff in my neck of the wape, but I was definitely happy to find these locally:

I'm pretty dang pumped to finally own one, and I've been having a blast with it so far.

That's a really solid starter lot. I loved Wing Commander III. I wish I could find really anything 3DO related locally.

Great lot!

 

Some titles there are really representative of the 3DO spirit. There's happy times there for sure.

Nice haul.

 

I have bought only a couple of games recently as have been getting into the Megadrive and Mega CD again.

 

Panzer General - £5 on amazon but didn't realise it was discs only. Still a good price and shipped free from Germany.

Shock Wave (small box)

Quarantine - Long Box and the Disc/case within is still sealed - £5 from Amazon and shipped free from Germany.

 

I am loathed to unwrap Quarantine as it is sealed but dying to play!!

I had wanted to do a longbox collection but it is now becoming out of my financial comfort zone. I may just settle on disc only and print up some quality DVD case inserts instead. I just hope the emulation gets better. :D
