The NEC PC-FX! Cooler than you'd imagine

Recommended Posts

 

Considering there is no sub-forum for PC-FX (no surprise there) I figured I'd start the convo in here in regards to my foolhardy attempt to make the PC-FX cool!

If you can read and understand Japanese then it's an 'ok' system I suppose (if you like that visual novel kind of stuff), but for English only speakers it's pretty bad.  There are only a handful of games that have been translated or don't have much text and of those only one or two are good.  It's a system for the hardcore collector or weeb.

It had a good version of Der Langrisser but that was later ported to other systems.

Fun fact about this PC-Engine successor: Its V810 processor also powered the Virtual Boy.

It's too bad that NEC could not find a way to include some sort of backwards compatibility for PC-Engine titles.

Huh

Successor is a stretch even if so true tecnically.

 

Beautiful 2D graphics but used for nothing but couple rpgs and FMV fighting game.

 

Battle Heat I think came with free. 

 

Was supposed to be 3D system but they decided to stop for some reason make it 2D only.

You're right that there is no subforum for PC-FX or even Turbografx-16/PC Engine, for that matter, as this is the "High Score Club" sub-forum, but there is a Turbografx thread within Classic Console Discussion:
