@borgmaster: On the one hand Shanghai is such a low impact thing that I'm almost embarrassed by how much of it I've played. But on the other hand, I see the Japanese Mega Drive box art for Shanghai II: Dragon's Eye and a part of me stirs.

The Turbo Ratio will start to matter a lot more beginning next week, when we enter genuine cross territory release stuff. Worth noting the cards themselves are not interoperable, which I will need to stress in that entry or at some point. And you could use adapters to get around this but those are human horn hard to find now.

Congratulations, you're now the main character of Giant Bomb. Your Certificate of MC will be arriving by DHL in the coming days, and will require a signature upon arrival.

My only addition here is that, beyond HG101 (a website with which I remain somewhat affiliated) Cassidy's Bad Game Hall of Fame page for Virtual Hydlide is simultaneously detailed and concise. Well worth yours or anybody else's time.

@borgmasterFunny you mention that... You might want to subscribe to that feed just in case Something Happens.

@chamuraMan those GT units don't go for cheap these days! Even though every single one of them needs some capacitor work about now. I paid to have my PCE recapped professionally and it was about $150 just for how much of a hassle it is to swap all of them. Also thanks for the enthusiasm, I hope I can deliver.

@manburgerRondo of Blood is very good, and the first year or so of the system's life is an eternity away from that game. We'll see if I make it that far!

@borgmaster: Fun fact about me: I work at a social science computation center at an R1 in the United States. Some folks are still using LaTeX, but all of our upper undergrad students just use the knitr package in R to submit work. R monoculture has been a wild thing to watch form over the last decade. Also misspoke above and would have written quintile had I not been a fool; it works well as the launch year of the PC Engine contains exactly five games.

I can't wait for Deep Listens to cover an Ys game, it's almost a certainty next year.

@mento: I intend to look at as many PCE/TG16 games as I am willing. It doesn't take long into the system's library (about four years if I'm being generous) to hit a point where an absolute majority of games are unlocalized Japanese disc games. A weekly blog where I just copy paste "This looks cool, too bad I can't read it" is not of much use to anyone.

Told you about The Fats, bro. I'm probably buying a Japanese copy of Side Pocket 2: Densetsu no Hustler just for the soundtrack alone, much less the wild shit in the story.

I don't say this lightly, as I really like these posts and want you to have fun.

You need to play more Minnesota Fats than you may expect. It goes places.

Here's hoping you develop a taste for Mike Alstott and other fine fullbacks in the fine American football games you'll be playing.

So you like these games, eh?

You should absolutely play Zork, but you should even more absolutely play Deadline. Wildly underrated forgotten text adventure from Infocom.
