    That page is actually pretty damn cool.

    It's a mini celebration of Sega's history. In other words, Sega is not turning its back on its history like certain other famed Japanese developers.

    Huh? You literally said your job is more dangerous than catching a virus with a 2-5% mortality rate (it's actually more like 1%). I just wanted to know what you did that was so dangerous. Don't blame...

    Sorry to burst the bubble here, but this probably has nothing to do with Virtua Fighter.

    The URL says "segashiro", so it's probably a Segata Sanshiro origin story or something like that.

  19. Info on the SVP (or another use of a Samsung DSP?) from Hideki Sato
