Turbografx 16

Post by DQ187 on Tue May 10, 2016 4:46 am

Figured i would start a little thread dedicated to this little gem of a system since we were talking about it. Its a system I've really fallen in love with over the last year since I've owned it and feel it needs some lovin and needs to be discussed more! That system is of coars the Turbografx 16!

I will admit, i was drawn to the system originally because of all the great Shoot Em Ups! The PC Engine (what the Turbografx is called in Japan) in general is known for its great line up of Shooters and i have been way into playing and collecting them over the past 5 years or so. Some of my favorites on the Turbo are Soldier Blade, Air Zonk, Blazing Lazers, Dead Moon and Super Star Soldier.

The system has more to offer than shooters of coarse, everything from great platformers like New Adventure Island, Bonks Adventure and Bonks Revenge to RPGs such as Cadash, Dungeon Explorer and Ys, and a great little strategy game called Military Madness! Neutopia should be mentioned also as its the Turbos answer to Legend of Zelda and plays alot like Link to the Past and actually came out before that game!

There are some great action games to offer as well. Some notable ones would be Ninja Spirit, a sorta Ninja Gaiden/Shinobi-like hack-n-slash game that actually stands on its own even against those. Bloody Wolf is a pretty awesome run-n-gun game similar to Ikari Warriors and could be considered the Turbos Contra. Legendary Axe is another fun side scrolling brawler worth a look! Plus the Turbo has an excellent version of Splatterhouse!

Should also note all the great Puzzle games the system has to offer such as Boxyboy, Parasol Stars and of coarse Bomberman! The system also has one of the best Pinball games of all time! Devils Crush is so fun and addicting! If you like Pinball games, you owe it to yourself to sit down with this game and learn all of its intricacies! The prequel Alien Crush is great fun to and Time Cruise should be mentioned here as well!

If you haven't checked out the Turbografx and are interested, alot of the games mentioned can be found in the Wii store for pretty cheap prices compared to what some of these games go for now adays. If you are into Castlevania, i highly recommend checking out Rondo of Blood also known as Dracula X. The PC Engine had the original version of the game and its pretty amazing! That can also be found in the eshop. I also Highly Recommend Lords of Thunder if you have ever liked a shooter at all its an amazing one and is in the eshop! Go looky!!

If you dont have a Wii, i know at least Soldier Blade and Super Star Soldier can be found on PSP, PS Vita and PS3 in the store. Great Shooters!

Anyways, hope that gets you guys a little hyped for the system and what it has to offer. Thats just sorta scratching the surface and the truth is, theres not alot of bad games on the system. If you are into retro gaming at all and havnt given the Turbo a look, its never too late! Smile now for a few pics of my Turbo collection!

Heres my game line up. I have most of the good shooters for the system and quite a few other fun games as well! The one PC Engine game on top is Spriggan which i cant play yet due to not having a CD attachment but i will eventually.



Heres the few boxed goods i have. All a little rough around the edges but the systems are in excellent shape and play great!



And heres the Turbo itself in all its glory! Got the Turbo Tap hooked up and ready for some Epic Bomberman battles! Can actually play up to 5 players on this bad boy!



And here'sthe awesome Hu-Card close up! Such a cool format! Roughly the size of a credit card and still 16bits of aweome! thats my entire library of games in that little stack! So cool! Snes cart for comparison.




Wanted to add, i dunno if you all are into Video Game music but i love a catchy game tune. Theres some great tunes to be found on Turbo. Air Zonk and Soldier Blade stand out to me. Both are not only 2 of my favorite games on Turbo but 2 of my favorite games period and i love the soundtracks. Heres a few stand out tracks from those 2 games:

this takes me back to simpler times
also Panzer Dragoon. Ooooh
Those cards I'd be terribly afraid of damaging them.
I notice, all the TurboGrafX games on top of the PS4 Mad
I wanna play every retro game few have played before one day
I can't imagine where i'd put it but i'd still want one
