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 […]

When NEC launched the Turbo Grafx-16 in North America they knew they had to be different.  They had an uphill battle ahead of them and they knew it.  While in Japan they enjoyed quite a prominent position with gamers, in North America all bets were off.  We saw unique releases, for the market, such as […]

Scrolling shooters are a staple of videogames.  Don’t believe me, just go look at the catalog of games from the first days of videogames.  Asteroids was a shooter, so was Raid on Bungling Bay.  Defender- yep.  On the NES there were countless titles such as Gradius, Guardian Legend and more.  Scrolling shooters in general are […]

This is interesting news, especially considering that severe lack of information on the RETRO Video Game System.  CYBER Gadget Corporation is working on a console named “Retro Freak” which will purportedly play 11 different 16-Bit era consoles worth of games.  That is quite the backlog for many of us, and a chance to add to […]

Splatterhouse Jennifer Smells of Rot Indiegogo game movie 3

The Splatterhouse series was an iconic set of games that sort of lost itself as time went on (most do). The first game, released on the Turbo Grafx-16 in North America showed that NEC weren’t all that keen on keeping lock step with what gamers were used to from the likes of Nintendo. Even Sega’s […]
