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!

I haven't played all the way through the MSX version, but yeah it looks like it might be a little better, with the more clearly marked secret passageways, and the fact that the enemies get knocked back when you attack them. I should really play all the way through that one too someday.

So glad to hear you enjoy our videos! I have another one for you today. Here's the sequel, XZR II. The game that later became Exile on the Turbo!

I just finished up the xzr videos; 'tis good fun seeing how they started out before becoming the Exile I know.  I like how the hidden forest passage was removed (except for a short trip to find Yuko) but it would've been nice if they removed a bit less of the other bits and not shortened the game up so much.

Yeah, it really is a shame how short Exile is. Otherwise, it is a near-perfect TGCD game.
LOL, I like how you called Rumi "Yuko". I assume that is a reference to her voice actress Minaguchi Yuko, right?

Today I watched the Ys 3 one.  I'm surprised how nice it looks, not all that far off the TG-CD version, though I'm sure watching on my little phone screen helps.  Also, more yakkitty sax please.   :lol:

Nah, I'm not clever enough to come up with anything like that.  I was referencing how Yuko (from Valis) is hiding in the woods (on the path to the lost sheep) in the Turbob version; she does quick costume changes in and out of her school uniform.

Yeah. Ys 3 for PC-88 is actually really impressive!

Oh is that lady in Exile supposed to be Yuko from Valis? I never noticed that. I kind of wondered why that random lady in the town has a face illustration, and why she's so unnecessarily cute. Guess now I know why.

Hey guys. Today I made a video about the soundtrack for the SNES game "Actraiser", which was originally composed on the NEC PC-88! I thought it would be an interesting topic for this series. Enjoy!

That was really cool!  Crazy to think how good an Actraiser port on PC88 could've been!  I actually think the chiptunes sound more similar to PCE than Genesis tho. :)   :bonkthis:

An Actraiser port on PC-88 would've been terrible! The music would have been fine but the graphics and gameplay would have been nearly insufferable for sure.

Thanks for watching!

That's neato.  I like that he saved his working files for years and eventually shared them, when so many people only want you to see the end product and not talk about how it they got there.  Then again..... not everyone wants to see how the sausage is made.   :pcgs:
