so everyone knows about SF3, and SF3 Third Strike is the only game in the series that got a serious competitive scene, etc. BUT. there is one amazing tidbit about the second game of the SF3 series that just blows me away 24/7: it was programmed with a widescreen mode built in!
this isn’t just an aesthetic change, oh no. the playfield actually becomes that much wider. it could potentially have a big benefit to zoners/fireball characters - who knows??
as an aside, I find the aesthetics of 2i to be far superior to 3s, it’s a much nicer looking game even without widescreen. although remy is cool. anyway.
my dream is to buy a big HUGE Android TV - this is a TV which has android OS built in - and run sf3 2i widescreen on it 24/7. kind of like how an arcade machine would be always on.
note that this setting is available in the big SF compilation that was released for consoles a few years ago.
does anyone else share this obsession?
edit: oh my a team spooky 2i tournament from a year ago. sadly, not in ws
