Hey, did you get that E-mail I sent you? Anyways, is Shin Megami Tensei and its numerous ports on your list, or would that be too much of an endeavor?

Sorry man, I get hundreds of mails so you'll have to be a bit more specific than "Did I get your mail?".

As for the Shin Megami Tensei games, one will appear on Battle of the ports at some point.

 

This week a game many love on Battle of the Ports

The myth possibly born from the supposed dummy cabinet Taito had running this? 

 

Just had a PC Engine inside? 

 

 

I'm not a huge fan of this one and the ST Port was over ambitious and suffered for it.

Very possible.  That and a language barrier for sure.

My favourite story regarding Parasol Stars relates to the C-64 version. The story was at the time, the programmer had suffered a break-in, they'd taken all his drives and backup discs, and work was too far along to start again.

 

In actual fact, him and his wife were mid-separation, and she smashed all his stuff up in a fit of rage while blind drunk. Oops.

I remember Parasol Stars being a really good showing title for the TurboGrafx-16.  Definitely a fun game for sure.  Take care and keep up the great work.

And one that should of stayed in the Arcades. 

 

 

Far too shallow in terms of gameplay, far too demanding for the hardware of the time and to think a 7800 version was planned..

One of my local arcades had a Steel Talons cabinet. You mentioned that when the player was hit, a speaker in the cab would bang loudly. I remember walking in there one time and someone playing got hit. The speaker on the back of the cab pinged so loud I jumped! I knew then I had to play it. I remember renting it on the Genesis after playing the arcade game and it being unplayable to the point that I questioned why they even bothered making it.

What's going on with the 2600 version in your video?  It looks corrupted.

 

I can't believe that the there were only two released ports of Turbo.  For some reason I assumed that the various computer systems got ports.

It's an early beta so it doesn't run well.

Unknown to me, there is actually a great 2600 homebrew around now.

 

New video today. - 7 inch IPS emulation station

It is a prototype, but the screen shouldn't be flashing like that and the roadside buildings shouldn't be all corrupted.  Here's what it should look like (I'm the one who first reviewed it):

Time for a Remastered Battle of the Ports.   This new video runs at twice the originals frame rate, higher resolution, features more games and has a voiceover.

Hi guys, new Battle of the Ports up now featuring a PS4 port.  We don't see many of those on the show.

This little box really packs a punch and as of writing this post, it is under 50 USD.

Gotta love Bonk.  Definitely a new addition to the franchise would be welcome I would think considering how long it has been dormant.  Still, at least we have all that was done on the PC Engine / TurboGrafx-16.
