    My 3DO games:
    Gex
    FIFA International Soccer (supports 6 controllers!)
    Out of this World
    Road & Track presents The Need for Speed
    Road Rash (remake -- had the original on SEGA Genesis)
    Samurai Shodown
    Space Hulk: Vengeance of the Blood Angels
    Super Street Fighter II Turbo
    Supreme Warrior (2-discs)
    Syndicate

    These games pre-dated the original Playstation by two years in some cases.

    Shit that's nearly as old as some SNES games.

    Playstation-quality graphics in the SNES heyday was a big jump. The muddy mess of pixels that is Need for Speed felt photorealistic!

    It was very good on the PC... being limited to SDTV resolutions would have been a setback.

    That was 1 year AFTER its initial release on the 3DO!

    Believe me, when NFS debuted, the graphics blew everyone away.

    Best magazine cover faux pas I can think of is back in '97 when I picked up a copy of Official Playstation Magazine with Parappa The Rapper on the cover. MY roommate's son who was in the car with me looked at the cover and said "Parappa The Raper, what kind of fucking game is this?" I pointed out the extra P and he shut up and promptly sunk low into the burgundy leather seat of my '87 Olds Trofeo.

    So I buzzed through Arkham Asylum and started up my playthrough of Arkham City.... such a good game. But I encountered something really weird yesterday (7/4).
    In the basement of the courthouse is a man in his cell called "Calendar Man". I approached him and he started talking about having bombs to set off to get him free and how that would be appropriate for Independence Day. And some more 4th of July references after that.

    Basically, he does that for every big holiday. Just a weird coincidence my first interaction with him in the game was on a holiday.
