You can still do it but you have to start with the phone off. You cannot power it down obviously unless you can see the screen. You can however let the battery die, plug it in to the charger and then try it. If you decide to try it you should end up with a screen like this. The 5th choice down will do the factory reset.

Here's the full article just in case you decide to do it. You've got nothing to lose but yeah, these days it's easy to go out and buy another phone.
