Killing the competition 3DO is a tank cruising down video game history and blowing up a few things along the way (like angry
parents for yelling at them for making AO titles) but it kept chuggin' it seemed unstoppable in it's day with it's 3D graphics,
CD sound, and some cool games. It was even designed to be upgraded into an even more powerful machine(i.e. the M2) but this
never succeeded. This was also the brick wall in the 3DO tanks way. Cruising straight for it not knowing just how much ammo
was left and if there was enough to blow it away.
3DO began firing, Panasonic sold M2 to electronics giant Matushita
(or something like that), this was supposed to be extra ammo for the tank but it turned out there was really nothing but blanks
left. The tank had made dents in the brick wall but hadn't blasted through. Blasted just enough to see through to the other
side. The other side was the glory of being successful and being the most popular gaming platform ever but instead of all
this 3DO's tank crashed and burned.
It was still a little functionable but a couple moments later Sega's tank came
rollin right over good ol 3DO. Then Sony's flippin' nuked 3DO basically in the incarnation of Playstation.
3DOers have resurrected the tank and have fit together peices of it but it will never again function as a whole apocalyptic
machine killing everything in it's path.
But wait!! A beacon shines yonder far with a message."Fellow 3DOers
you can ressurect the 3DO tank completely if you get enough support!" Good Deal Games will help in the fight but will
probably never make a new game unless 3DO gets more support. 3DO's future looks bleak with the coming of the XBOX, Gamecube
and the already Playstation 2. And in the retrogaming part Atari seems to be dominating. So 3DO is going into a down hill
spiral and only you can save it. 3DO sites constantly are shut down, including many M2 sites and 3DO review sites. All of
this saddens the 3DO communinty. SO I, Ryan, have seen fit to the best of my ability to help completely resurrect 3DO with
3DO 4 LIFE. There are still a few 3DO sites out there but most haven't been updated for years. And not in the near future
but one day my site will end as well because sooner or later I will have covered everything 3DO. This is very far off though.
Heck look at 3DO TODAY almost never updated and yet he has all those games and doesn't review a one.
The 3DO community
on my message board is starting to flourish, but all the other message boards have little to no messages.
