Where did 3DO go???

Can you guys believe it?! I think 3DO websites have been disappeared for too long and no one were reestablishing it. Why won't 3DO open? And why doesn't even www.3doeurope.com work? Some of us are in need for them, of course. It's like they've abandoned us.

'Cause 3DO is dead dude... well I think they are, wasn't it them who made heroes of might and magic 1/2/3/4? Because if it was them, then I think I remember something about them getting into financiel trouble... now that I think about, there seems to be a lot of companies as of lately, that has been getting into finaciel trouble.

If you guys are hesitating about what happened with 3DO, I'll find it out and let you know.

Awful games? Heroes 3 ruled (and still does). Heroes 4 was ok, but not as good as 3.

Ignore CS2x.
He's still a rascal in the forum.

Of course, I love Might & Magic games. I even have a best custom mod for Heroes 3 Shadow of Death: In the wake of gods. It makes Heroes 3 feature more things like Heroes IV have, even new things available.

And even, CS2x said 3do made these games? New World Computing developed Heroes of Might and Magic, of course.

They made more than Army Men. Their other games were crap, but Heroes of Might and Magic was brilliant.

Okay, I've read the DirextX news that 3DO was split because of bankruptcy. But their products was given out to several companies by auction. For example, Might & Magic products were given out to Ubisoft.

Excellent news, Darkflame! Wonder if there ever will be an MMORPG in the world of Might & Magic.

Crusaders of Might & Magic, Legends of Might & Magic, Warriors of Might & Magic... They're all in the world of Might & Magic.
