I finally got around to testing some systems, two of which are officially being added to the 2010 Underdog Chamber exhibit.
To start with, I obtained a Panasonic FZ-1 3DO system from the GOAT store. While it still will go through a bit more testing, I’m satisfied at this point to add it to the 2010 show. This wonderful and true underdog system from 1993 now joins the Underdog Chamber, and I hope it receives a warm welcome from the public in March. Some interesting 3DO games will be on display, from the original Road Rash, to Blade Force, Gex, Out of this World, and a few more.
My old favorite (still after all these years), the Odyssey2 officially is in the UC exhibit for 2010. I was play-testing an old and rare game early today (like 3 am) and also playing some classic Odyssey2 games as well. It was such fun to be playing games on my favorite classic console again. This system from 1978 will be on display with a wide range of games, with some new ones as well (yes, new). The new 233-multi-cart will be on display, along with Route 66+, and much more.
Lastly for this early morning, I have been finally testing the //e MicroDrive. I have successfully tested the enhanced //e kit, and put in the drive into slot 2. It is working for now, but I need to get some game images loaded onto the drive before I officially announce that the //e with be in the show.
Till then, more testing to come, probably starting with Mac systems for this years return of the Quake LAN (more to come on that).
Oh, and a happy Xmas to all you gamers out there. Hope you get some cool new (or classic) game(s) with your gifts this season!
