    A Turbo lookback!



    To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of NEC's TurboGrafx-16, 1UP's Kevin Gifford takes a nostalgic look-back on the days when Bonk was every (rich) kid's hero, and shooters were on every gamer's plate. Interestingly enough, Gifford points out facets about the system, its ambitions and what it hoped to achieve in its short lifespan, relating some very curious similarities with a more recent console...

    Click the link below for a very good article for those who had the system, or were/still are at the very least curious about it.

    Secret best console ever. Love that it's getting a new lease on life on the Virtual Console.

    I can't agree with you more! I'm still waiting for Legendary Axe though.... even when I was still buying games for it back in 1990, I never found myself a copy.

    I've got no affinity to the US name.... Its PCEngine FTW for me!

    Though I never really owned one... It was always renting this near my place. I think the going rate then was 20 pesos an hour. I would play all afternoon!

    I only played (and finished) those must-have then. But unfortunately I was hooked with the super famicom soon after. But I would visit that place every now and again.

    That's such a cool reminisce, jem! I remember going to Cash n' Carry to pickup, what looked to me then, like a TurboGrafx-16 game called Shadow Warriors. I mean, it was a card, plus it had NEC & Hudson on the card! So my bro & i tried it in the store, saw it, bought it, took it home, tried it...to no avail. I only discovered a few years after about a little thing called, region-locks. Doh! Foiled! So I had to bring it back and get a refund.

    I can't believe Legendary Axe still isn't on the VC (let's forget LA2 even existed, shall we?).

    Here! Here! (Though I must say, the intro is pretty darn cinematic!) I still have mine, and get stuck in the water-falling stage. It's a maze beyond belief! Not "amaze"... "A (freakin) MAZE!"
