That's such a great power. And with a great power, come a great responsibility.
Yep. Been playing a lot of Spudder-mun of late.
Yep, of course it's not 3D, it doesn't have any special chip like Virtua Racing.
It is just drawn in a way to make it looks like a 3D graphic and I think they did a good job.
Sad thing is 32X is the one who's supposed to produce many 3D games due its special chip but no companies want to invest their time and money in that due to its bad sales.


Do you think this chip could have worked for the Game Gear?

It won't be pretty, the battery's life would have dropped very quick. Even 32X needs separate power outlet.

Oh yeah. The energy requirement would have been immense. It wasn't until Game Gear Advance until handhelds could support 3D games.

(Well, Faceball is perhaps the earliest 3D game I know on the original game Boy.)

It would've been cool if Game Gear could at least got Subroc-3D.
Sega's Subroc-3D released in 1983 was the earliest 3D arcade video game.

Trivia : Sonic the Hedgehog and Final Fantasy VII's Sephiroth share the unique similarity of critically damaging or killing the final boss of the respective Super Smash Bros. game they debuted in.

I regard it more 2.5D but still very impressive for it's time.

Sonic is just too powerful for the Smashverse. Won't have it any other way.

Too fast too. Sometimes I died by myself when playing as him because I braked him too late.

Yes, but just because it was trademarked doesn't guaranteed it would be released.
Still at least there's planning for that.

Back when I used to play Brawl a lot, I tried to master a style of playing as Sonic where you not only attack aggressively but evasively as well. This also includes areial, over-the-pit combat which is a rather "high risk, high reward" playstyle.

I haven't played Smash since.

I was purely guessing that acronym! Wow!

Switch, WiiU, and 3DS version Sonic is kinda different than Brawl.
Personally I prefer WiiU and 3DS version.

When I started out playing as so Sonic against a friend, I was beaten a lot. But wanting to "represent" Sonic in a Nintendo-dominant society, I got good. Though I guess doesn't matter now.

So my guess for the acronym was right/ Wow!

But why Virtua Fighter 3? Why not VF5US?

It might not matter now but it's still at least mattered back then. That fact wouldn't change.

There was already VF5US arcade (called Virtua Fighter esports).
It's using APM3 cabinet, same with what's Virtua Fighter 3tb Online using right now.

It even had the official tournament periodically ... in Japan.

Well, other countries also had the tournaments too but they're not officially endorsed by SEGA.
