Actraiser FM Synth OST video is up (PC-88 Paradise!)
« on: April 15, 2021, 08:22:32 AM »
After a few years taking a break, I finally decided to get back to reviewing NEC PC-88 games on Youtube. This time I'm doing an RPG that we all know and love on our Turbo. I compare the PC-88 version to the Turbo version several times in the video. Hope you guys like it.

Pretty cool - thanks for sharing.  The provided tunes are okay, but I like how you can play CDs instead.

I reviewed the second game as well.
Please check it out if you ever wanted to know about all the crazy stuff that happens in the sequel that we didn't get in English. (Spoiler warning included.)
Thanks for watching!

I made another video in the series. This time, it's not turbo-related, but hopefully you guys are interested in classic shmups like I am.

Oh, we are! Keep it up, I've been enjoying the Basement Bros come back. Always thorough and I learning something new everytime. It's great not to watch some jackass yell at his laptop camera from their moms house with a wall of game behind them :)

Great to hear it! Yeah, we've had a bit of extra time lately to make videos, but each one is still pretty time consuming. I should be able to make another soon.

Very cool, I love the packaging on those old PC-88/98 games as well.  You were paying a lot back then but it definitely felt like you were getting your moneys worth out of them though.

Hey guys. This time I made a video about a game called Mirrors for the NEC PC-88 CD-ROM. The CD drive for this system is the same drive as the PC Engine.
Not a directly turbo-related video, but hope you find it interesting. Thanks!

That was pretty cool for ancient 8-bit CD Rom games, and kind of reminded me of JB Harold. Would love to see the Marty version someday, it does look fun!

Thanks for the upload, great work like always!

Thanks for watching! The graphics do, indeed, have sort of a JB Harold vibe, don't they? The similarities pretty much end there though.
I believe the FM Towns version of this game will run on the Marty (if you have a mouse). Haven't actually tried it with my Marty though (I think it's at my parents' house, lol).

Just added a video on Ys 2 for PC-88. Please check it out!
Of course the Turbo version is best, but how does it compare to the original?

I'm finally all caught up!  I love seeing ol' Ys in its birthplace, and the "will it doom" segment really made me smile.

Thanks for making these; they're a ton of fun.

I'm really glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for watching!

Just now I've posted a video on XZR, the game that came before Exile on our beloved Turbo CD.
I hope you'll find it interesting learning about the game that came before...

One of the best things is getting new Basement Bros videos!  This one is really incredible and it's amazing how secretive this game seemed to be.  I wonder if the MSX version is a little more accessible for players.  Like they aren't total jerks expecting you to find all of the holes/doors by checking every pixel, lol.  Still really cool to see that you suffered for all of us to enjoy!

Can't wait for the next one!
