I've been looking on evilBay for about 8 months now and no luck. Yeah, it is fairly difficult to find. Do you own a copy? Have you taken any pics of it in the past whilst it was out of storage? Here is a picture. Luckily, I have it in a box that is close at hand. I quite like the artwork for the Ja...

Old 3DO Receipts

I was going through a lot of my long-box 3DO titles a while back and every once in a while a receipt would show up. I thought it was kind of interesting as it provided a sort of snapshot of time from when 3DO games were retailing on store shelves. The receipts also help to establish a rough timeline...

Japanese Wolfenstein exists, but can be difficult to find. Japanese Doom did not make it out.

How can you post a vid of it on Youtube if you don't open it? :wink: He's right ya know! I second this.

Okay, so what is it? I don't know. It's factory sealed and I was hoping not to have to open it. :D Google found site of Katsumi Mimura, who participated in development of this game in 1995. My expirience in English isn't good, so let's compile list of questions and e-mail him. Nice find. I'd settle...

Ekiden

I picked this up recently. This is another 3DO title I wasn't sure existed. There doesn't seem to be any information on it. Like Oilman, I can't even find a picture. It's been on my "might exist" list for years. I think the only other place that even mentions it is 3DO Today's "The Incomplete 3DO Ga...

I disagree with that it has "stayed true to its arcade gameplay, by deliberately shunning the realism"... The game STARTED as a fairly realistic street racing game. I feel no "arcade racing" when i play NFS on the 3DO. Exactly. This tells me that they didn't play the first Need for Speed on the 3DO...

What is the item (jewel case) second picture down, top left corner of the picture? I can make out "Killing Time" and the 3DO and Studio 3DO logos, but not much else.

I'm not sure about this at all, but I seem to recall that the second game was said to be better because it allowed you to race.

If things weren't such a mess around my house right now I would pull out my copy and try it.
Maybe someone else here owns the game and can chime in?

I have not tried either of the two games, but I do believe I read somewhere that the second one was the superior game.
It is a very old/vague memory, though.

Over 1700 dollars for that game on evilbay. Are they serious? What in the blue blazes is wrong with people? Congratulations to the seller and an look of absolute horror and shock at whoever paid that much for a non prototype, one of a kind only game. I shudder to think what his maximum bid was. 2k?...
