LOL! Props to you LadyFriendJay  :P  for having a sense of humour about it though, aka being adult about it, by not taking it as a personal attack on you because I dared jesting about a company you enjoy/enjoyed owning products by. If only the rest of the internet were thus...

can't wait to get them. I must say I've not bee blown away by Splatterhouse so far, I find it fairly linear and frustrating so far

Great comparison video!

Great video Laird! Splatterhouse for the Turbo seems to me to have held up well against the arcade.

have to give it another go soon but so far I find it more irritating than enjoyable.

I've done my Turbografx system overview vid I just need to upload it for Zap to look at I guess. I'm not sure how great it is, its 20 mins or so but I think its ok, I spend about 7-10 mins talking bout it then another 8 or so showing games

I should post my views on the PC Engine since I'm getting it out again right now (the PC Engine I mean heh heh). It's a marvellous machine that was so far ahead of its time and in its original 1987 Japanese incarnation is one of the most beautiful looking systems ever made. I don't know how many hours I played Space Harrier on it, or Klax, or Out Run, or Pacland... Then there were shoot em ups like Gradius and R-Type (I preferred Gradius), and too many others to mention. I'll never sell it simply because it's not worth it: too many great titles/conversions and it doesn't take up much space. Only criticism is too many shoot-em-ups that become very familar once you've played a few of them. I just wish a few other games had been ported from the arcade, like Paperboy, Xybots and Marble Madness, because the PCE had the potential to be the definitive arcade conversion specialist for the 80s.

Very true, the Mega Drive kind of took over in that respect.

I am still surprised though at the amount of games Sega licensed for release on the PCE given they had consoles of their own at the time.

No need to get my approval fella. I trust your judgement, so go for it.
