I still do. I wish people would stop thinking it's just another racing game. Watch and listen to this video to understand why Stunt Race FX is unique.
If any one of the cars from Stunt Race FX appeared in SSBB as playable characters, then I would believe they would punch and kick with their tires, use their "honk + jump" move as their UP + B move, and use their turbo boosters as their FORWARD + B move. Some other things in the game can be used as their other moves. Even though, cars aren't really suitable enough to fight, these are cartoony cars. SEGA made one for Fighter's Megamix, which is the Hornet stock car from the Daytona USA series.
I still love Stunt Race FX - it was one of the games I picked up for the SNES off ebay recently. I played it briefly when I was younger and then later I tried playing it through a dodgy emulator.
But the actual game is great. I remember the reviews of the game when it came out and really wanting it. The clay models of the cars were brilliant and I wish I had one ;D
But I simply love the characterisation in the game. The 3D was a step up from StarFox (but as usual the PAL conversion suffered from huge black bars obscuring most of the screen).
I seriously doubt the cars would show up in SSBB as fighters, but I would love to see a trophy or two commemorating this excellent little racing game. Too bad it's unlikely we'll ever see a sequel since Mario Kart moved into 3D as well.

I absolutely loved Stunt Race FX when it came out! There were so many cool modes, and the track design was brilliant. I played it all the time, despite its shortcomings.
I'm not usually one to complain about frame rate issues, but even at the time of the game's release, it seemed really choppy to me. And thus, the control, too, was sluggish. These were faults I was able to forgive at the time, but I hate to say the game hasn't aged well for me. I'll always have fond memories, but I can't enjoy the game now.
Of course, if Nintendo ever decided to make a new one, I'd be all for it!
Man.... all those animated commericals from the 90's make me wonder why there wasn't a TV show for every Nintendo game on the SNES. The Super Metroid and Zelda shows could've been live action.... and Mario and such could be animes...
Nester the Lark: ^ Reminds me that Xanadu Next also had a randomly-generated post-game dungeon. You needed to go into it many times, getting a little further each time, but it was different every time you re-entered. It was very grindy. I never did finish it.

nocturnal YL: DIVA FT Meiteki Cybernetics EXEX perfect. Finally got it.

Spud: Lol, Imagine spamming a sleepy little forum like this.

nocturnal YL: I have a tendency to dislike a game because it's popular, or at least, I give popular games a harsher, more critical look.

Nester the Lark: ^ I think I do something similar in that I tend to favor less popular things. It's not something I do intentionally or even consciously; I think it's just part of my personality.

nocturnal YL: Official pairings in games sometimes surprise me. Like <spoiler> in BLUE REFLECTION 2. Or Astrid and Makalov in Fire Emblem 10 which is less shocking but still unexpected. For a non-romantic example, Meta Knight and Dedede in KF2 work so well together.

nocturnal YL: BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light is a… shocking experience. I'm at the start of Chapter 9 (so 3 more to go), and considering the side quests and maxing out character Talent Points, I'm about 70% done.

nocturnal YL: I'll say this: I'm glad it's not a popular game. I don't need to worry about spoilers. Is it worth playing? Yes for story, no for other elements. An overall huge yes for me, because I really like the story so far.

nocturnal YL: Almost anything I can say is spoiler, and I really think it's best to jump into it blind, not even reading the official website. I'll probably write a review on it, so stay tuned.

nocturnal YL: I was done with BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light… two days ago, actually. It's quite difficult to put my thoughts in words, but at the same time, it's similar to what others would say about the game.

nocturnal YL: My old computer died, on the same day I got my new one. The timing isn't exactly a coincidence, as it started showing symptoms a long time ago. I got very lucky that I did my backup and bought the new PC today. (Game review about 1/3 done, by the way)
Apr 24, 2022 15:10:51 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Now I'm not sure if I should post the review as is. I basically typed out the whole story, but that's exactly what I don't want potential players to read.
Apr 25, 2022 10:39:45 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Writing too little would make it difficult to appreciate why is the story good, but writing everything out would defeat the point. Umm…
Apr 25, 2022 10:40:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: And it's done! I decided to cut most of the story and only leave in a few examples. The cut part is even longer than the full review, but if anyone wants to know the story they should play the actual game or at least watch videos of it.

Nester the Lark: I like that we keep posting cameos, even though Fry has no intention of ever updating the site again. But I guess the forum is still an archive.

Shrikeswind: Looks like it's been a minute since TV Eye's been here, so I'll go post that in the thread as well. It looks like he made it to around the halfway mark, but now it's been 4 years.

Shrikeswind: I was thinking about it because the thumbnail for JRose11's Red/Blue Dugtrio-only run reminded me of Hidden Depths' Dugtrio.
