Welcome once again to the Super Play Corner. While I play through this week's games (only got ActRaiser to play through now... and I'm trying to figure it out... it's a strange one, that's for sure!) here's some news that was brewing around about the same time.

Here's all you need to know about the different "chips" that enhanced the graphics of Super Nintendo games, including the brand new (but mostly unknown) "Super FX Chip."

It's interesting that before anyone even knew about Star Fox, the Argonaut guys were talking about using the chip to morph and scale sprites, which was eventually what it was used for in Yoshi's Island.
So how's your retro knowledge? Eight games were released with the Super FX (or Super FX2) chip in the cartridge. How many can you name?
