Saru Interview – Henshin Engine

We don’t see a lot of new PC Engine, also known as Turbo Grafx-16, games come across Kickstarter.  That is why when I saw Henshin Engine I knew I had to write it up.  Write it up I did (here).  What we have here is a new action platform title that is now coming to […]

Henshin Engine Hits Kickstarter Bringing PC Engine Turbo Grafx 16 Action Platformer Home

New Turbo Grafx-16, also known as PC Engine in Japan, games are not all that regular today.  Fans have become accustomed to maybe one new game for this console per year, if that.  Compared to the Sega Genesis and Atari 2600 new game output by independent developers, this is rather sad.  Someone didn’t tell Sarumaru […]

Top 10 Profitable Turbo Grafx-16 Games

The Turbo Grafx-16 Entertainment SuperSystem (to give it its full title!), also known as the PC Engine in Japan and France, was designed to compete with the NES at the time, but it failed to break into the North American market and sold poorly, which means that many of its games are rare and profitable!

Best Turbo Grafx-16 Games You Need

The Turbo Grafx-16 turns 27 later this week (the 19th) so it got me to thinking what are the best games to own on it?  This list was not easy to come up with because there are so many great games.  I did not pull the old trick of padding the list with multiple titles […]

What if – Atari Released Their 3DO Console?

It is no secret that when Atari released their Jaguar console that they were going up against the 3DO.  In some markets there were other options such as the CD32 (Amiga based) console and other lesser known platforms.  This was all prior to the launch of the Playstsation (which would kick everyone in the butt) […]

Micro Transactions Could Save Arcade Games as we Knew Them

Back in the day arcades were king.  This was in the 80’s up to the early 90’s when home consoles were still underpowered.  When the Playstation and Sega Saturn came out though, while still underpowered by comparison, the quality of ports was much better.  This spelled the downfall of arcade games.  Gamers were no longer […]
