PlayStation and Saturn aren't the only gaming news: Virtual Boy, Nintendo As any game jockey will tell you, the best ones leave you slobbering at the screen for hours on end. With VB -- Nin-tendo's much-promoted, $180, 3-D gaming console -- this is impossible. First, the table-top eyetrap is an ergonomic nightmare, creating instant neck cramps. Second, for safety reasons the games pause automatically every 15 minutes. (Among the written warnings: The system could permanently damage the vision of users 7 years and younger.) I suffered dizziness, nausea and headaches, despite repeated adjustments. Worse, the games aren't worth the trouble. Galactic Pinball wastes its 3-D effect on a mostly 1-D pinball game with four ordinary tables. Mario's Tennis would have seemed cool in, oh, 1986. Red Alarm is fairly promising: Fighting a sentient defense machine in a tech-wing craft, the player pilots through a cool 3-D environment. But it's all done in hollow vector graphics, creating a confusing, gossamer-webbed world. Teleroboxer is a basic first-person fighter with an opponent that's too easy to figure out -- but the sight of a fist flying directly at your face does add some, how you say, visceral tension. Three more titles are expected soon; The best is Waterworld, in which you blow enemies off their watercraft -- and then finish them off while they flounder in the waves. Interested in VB? Hold out for more and better titles -- and a cure to that hangover problem.-- Bill Frischling Jaguar CD, Atari Atari's 64-bit Jaguar, long the most advanced and least respected combatant in the video game wars, adds the Jag CD to this season's gamefray. Will the $150 add-on to the $150 base unit bring the platform the big installed base of followers and exclusive killer apps it needs? A recent look at the four included titles suggests otherwise. Vid Grid and Myst are ports of PC hits, nice to help Jag fans keep pace but not likely to draw anyone to the platform. Blue Lightning is a fast-paced Afterburner-style jet fighter game with good variety, engaging gameplay and excellent cinematics between levels -- a solid title, but hardly a breakthrough. And the techno-rave music CD soundtrack to the Jag cartridge game Tempest 2000 shows off the platforms's Virtual Light Machine -- which projects swirling light patterns, "playable" with the Jag controller, on your TV. But killer apps? We look forward to the next crop of releases.- Steve Marsh CAPTION: Nintendo's Virtual Boy packs a punch-and a hangover. CAPTION: Jaguar CD's $150 add-on brings enhanced sound and graphics to the Jag 64-bit system.
