3DO To Go / 3DOh No!


3DO To Go was a series of bite sized videos about the oft forgotten 3DO console of the mid-nineties. The series was mostly reviews of games along with the occasional specials detailing interesting trivia and history of the 3DO. Produced in partnership with the now defunct 'Rising Stuff' import website, Season One was released between November 2008 and April 2009.

3DOh No! is a new let's play series started December 2016 in conjunction with Nerd & Tie.

3DOh No!: Shock Wave (1994)
3DOh No!: Shock Wave (1994)On this episode of 3DOh No! Trae tackles the classic 1994 Electronic Arts title "Shock Wave." Of course, since this is 3DOh No!, it's the Japanese version he has to struggle through... and he's rather terrible at the game.

This is a shorter episode because of it.

This was produced for Nerd & Tie
3DOh No!: Theme Park
3DOh No!: Theme ParkOn this episode of 3DOh No!, Trae tackles a Japanese import copy of Electronic Arts' "Theme Park" (1995). Because even though the game was originally made in English, that's not the version we ended up with.

And, as such, chaos ensues.

3DOh No!: Theatre Wars - Goraku no Dendou
3DOh No!: Theatre Wars - Goraku no DendouIn this installment of 3DOh No!, Trae tries out the Japanese game "Theatre Wars: Goraku no Dendou" (1994). It's apparently a Theatre/Theater management sim by "Hamlet" for the 3DO, and the game is just as realistic as you'd expect it to be.

I other words, "not very."

Produced for Nerd & Tie
3DOh No!: Montana Jones
3DOh No!: Montana JonesWelcome to the first installment of 3DOh No!, a Letís Play series where Trae takes a 3DO game and plays it with zero foreknowledge of what the heck it is. On this episode, he tackles the 1995 game "Montana Jones," which is apparently based on an kidís knock-off Indiana Jones anime series. Also the whole game is in Japanese.

And Trae doesnít speak Japanese.

This was a terrible idea.

3DO To Go: Paddock Note '95
3DO To Go: Paddock Note '95In this entry into the ongoing depths of the strange world of gaming that is the 3DO, I look at Paddock Note '95, a Horse Racing Simulation. It was released in 1995 by Fuji Television and was a Japanese only release. Because of that though, the entire game is in Japanese... a language I neither speak nor read.

Produced in Association with RisingStuff.com.
3DO To Go: FIFA International Soccer
3DO To Go: FIFA International SoccerIn this installment I pull out FIFA International Soccer which was released by Electronic Arts in 1994. It's the first game in their long running FIFA series of video games. Really, this is a game for people who want to play a game... about soccer.

3DO To Go: Pyramid Intruder
3DO To Go: Pyramid IntruderIn this episode I review Pyramid Intruder, a 1995 Japanese only release by Taito. Pyramid Intruder is one part remake, one part adaptation of Sega's LaserActive title Pyramid Patrol from 1993. A simple shoot-em-up, Pyramid Intruder is a flawed but fun import game.

3DO To Go: Zhadnost
3DO To Go: ZhadnostThis installment of the show now dubbed "3DO To Go" we look at "Zhadnost: The People's Party." It is a 2-4 player party game released in 1995 by Studio 3DO. Zhadnost is a game show with an ironic sense of humor with a Cold War twist.

3DO Game Review: Escape From Monster ManorIn this installment of 3DO Game Review I look at Electronic Art's 1993 First Person Shooter "Escape From Monster Manor" (also known in Japan as "Virtual Horror - Norowareta Yakata").

3DO Game Review: Comparing 3DO Models
3DO Game Review: Comparing 3DO ModelsRather than review a game this week, I decided to take a look at the vast multitude of different 3DO models instead. Which 3DO should someone trying to get into this lost world of gaming attempt to track down?
