I hate Army Men...

Post by Martin III » Fri Mar 29, 2013 1:47 am

No, not the games of themselves - I've never played any of them. What I hate is that it seems a lot of Ebay sellers categorize games developed by the 3DO Company as being on the 3DO platform. So when I browse Ebay for games playable on my 3DO, half the results are Army Men games. It makes going through the listings very tedious.

Has anybody figured out a way to get around this when doing your 3DO shopping?

Isn't there a way to exclude words? I think if you go into Advanced Search, it gives you the option.

I've never played any of the Army Men games, although I heard the Air Attack ones were decent.

I also had the same idea as you.
:?
It is very difficult for searching.

If I search in "3DO", I will make "3DOOR CAR" often hit... :cry:
Because I make a note using translation software, I think that it becomes a poor English sentence.
I'm sorry.

If there is rude expression, please point it out.
Thanking you in advance.

what you are saying is, this is not an accessory:

The only suggestion I have is to search for "3do -army -men" instead of browsing.
