Christmas 1994, I awoke. I had on my special cunty pyjamas (Nothing), my Dad had his big cunt pyjamas on (Also nothing), he unlocked my room and carried me downstairs. It was then that my world was opened up to a cavalcade of kind of 3D awesome-ness. My present for that year, besides a dead hooker, was a Panasonic 3DO Interactive Multiplayer.
Even with all of those faults, I loved mine. Here is why.
3D-Oh My God, People Actually Played This?
It wasn't a shit machine but failed in the market for a simple reason. It was over priced. £500 is a lot for a console now, let alone in 1995. Between that and a lack of quality titles, it gave way for it's competitor to smash it in sales; The Sony Playstation.
It did well in Japan though. Kind of. Well okay, it just became a receptacle for fuck loads of porno laser discs.
I first discovered Road Rash on the Mega Drive. It was exhilarating. It was fast. Plus, I got to smash people in the face with a chain while riding a motorbike. What else was there to love? Well, the 3DO version ramped it up. The graphics were better, the music was amazing, it was faster and it blew my mind.
The Need For Speed
In The End...
