Prophecy - And Privateer Online! - Ships Appear in Voodoo Advertising (September 18, 2022)

Long Live the Confederation!
I love hardware ads where assets from a bunch of games are hanging out. We've got spaceships! And scantily clad ladies! And monster trucks! (PC Gamer, May 1998)





I am finding so many of these that it will require a deep dive... but look at THIS ONE which features a Vaktoth from Privateer Online!?!?!?!?!?





So it looks like there were four of these paste ups for the original Voodoo cards in 1997. No Wing Commander in the first one!





Then two more for the Voodoo 2. After that there’s not such a focus on advertising how much developer support 3dfx has…






Just way more butts up there than are usually in one of my posts.


I had the Canopus Pure 3D and it had *6* megs of memory instead of 4. Still have no idea what that even did.
