Ever wondered how I became interested in old Japanese PC's? It was largely thanks to this game! Glad I was finally able to make a proper tribute video. Let's talk about the sequel to the two Dragonslayer games on the Turbo!

Noice.  I've only played the PSP versions of the gagharv trilogy, so it's great seeing the earlier ones.  The PC-98 one is great, of course, and look like something that'd be at home on the PCE, but the uniqueness of the Saturn version has a certain charm too.

As always, 'twas a fun watch.  I hope you someday get tear of vermillion and song of the ocean.  :pcgs:

I'm on the lookout for the Saturn port (which is an entirely different game) but man those Hudson tunes and graphic style has my interest peeked!

New video! You may know Enix for the Dragon Quest series, but did you know they also made a similar turn-based RPG on the NEC PC-88 in 1991? Watch to learn all about it!

Hahhah, I love the controller hookup part. That made me laugh. It's rare when a puzzling concoction like that works, and I'm glad you figured it out!

The game looks pretty cool too!

Yep. I was surprised it worked. I was half expecting the PC-88 wouldn't be able to provide power to all of those devices through the keyboard port or something like that would prevent it from working.

Great episode! Always love to see early Enix works.

Your entire PC-88 Paradise series really is fantastic. I can't quite bring myself to go down the retro PC collection rabbit hole, but each video nearly convinces me to. So grateful to be able to experience each of these pieces of gaming history vicariously through you!
