Welcome to Octurbo

Greetings, fellow webizens of Immense Incendiary. As you may already be aware, I've been posting screenshot LPs of TurboGrafx-16 games throughout the year as part of a feature I tentatively dubbed TurboMento-12, a name it got stuck with in lieu of anything better.

The goal of TurboMento-12 was twofold: A) I wanted to show off the library of a console very few of us ever got to see, either due to its age, its non-European exclusivity or everyone's wise decision to stick with their SNESes and Mega Drives during that era, and B) Because I wanted to see for myself what I had missed out on. I don't feel like I've quite managed that with the paltry nine games covered so far, even adding in the three more to come.

Look at this enigmatic thing. Is that a cupholder? What's with all that junk in the trunk? Does it really come with turbo toggles as standard? (Well, I suppose that's explicable for a console called the TurboGrafx.)

So what Octurbo is, is an excuse to quickly run through a whole mess of TG16 games that are still out there. These won't be full playthroughs: I'll probably stick to whatever constitutes the first "world" of each of these games and then hastily move on. Through this I can show off a lot more of the TG16 library as well as hopefully narrow down the three final games I want to beat for TurboMento-12.

I apologize in advance for spamming your notifications with new blog alerts. I have no clue how many of these I'll get through, but I'm going to be pretty busy with them this month.

Just so I'm not constantly copy/pasting tables, I'll link back to this "Table of Contents" blog after each entry and keep track of them all here:

That's all thirty! Have fun in moderation, kiddos. Maybe I'll do this all over again next year. I've done stupider things.
