I first played Gex on the ill-fated 3DO... the same system where Gex was supposed to be kind of the mascot of the 3D0, since Crystal Dynamix was first making games for the 3DO & produced some half-way decent games.
Same here. My friend had a 3DO before his sister took it to college and we never saw it again. :( That game was sweet, we got a real kick out of the random quotes he would say during the game, though it was probably because we were younger kids then. :p The only other Gex game I played was for the Game Boy, which was OK, but it was massive and I never got to finish it.
Now people ask... Who's Dana Gould?
Haven't a clue. :p
