Time waster of the day: The PC Engine Software Bible’s YouTube Channel

I don’t know about you, but I’m very much a “try before you buy” kind of guy when it comes to games. At the very least, I like to see a game in action–in person is great, but via video will do–before I spend my hard-earned cash on it.

When it comes to PC Engine games, though, I often rely on screenshots–shared on sites like The PC Engine Catalog ProjectThe PC Engine Software Bible and Video Game Den–to sell me on a particular title. At least, that’s what I did until yesterday–when I discovered The PC Engine Software Bible’s YouTube Channel.

Until then, I’d never seen Horror StoryGotzendiener or Sorcerian in action. Now I have. Will I buy any of those games in the future? Probably not–thanks to what I saw on said channel. On the other hand, the videos have piqued my interest in Gomola Speed, Pop ‘n Magic and Volfied.

Anyway, I highly recommend checking it out–if you have a bit of time on your hands.

  1. That’s funny, I just did up a review for Gotzendiener myself like a few minutes ago. And I do believe you chose wisely in deciding to avoid it. 🙂

    I like Horror Story, though. I’ll try to do that one justice in a review at some point. Pop ‘n Magic is great.

  2. Oh, so now you’ve got me rethinking my decision to avoid Horror Story. Damn you! (Just kidding.)

    Actually, the video(s) I watched today made the game seem interesting, though the main character definitely seemed a bit floaty. You’d recommend it all the same

    Anyway, I look forward to reading your review of that title — whenever you can get to it.

    As for Pop ‘n Magic — I definitely plan to get it at some point, as I love that type of game (Don Doko Don, Rainbow Islands, Parasol Stars). There are a few other CD games I want to get first, though — namely all three of the Tengai Makyo titles 🙂

  3. Well, I just read your review of Gotzendiener. What a disappointment! (The game, not your review.)

    I’ve always kind of liked the game’s graphics, but if it’s clunky and there’s nothing to do … Ugh.

    Oh, well, I’ll just spend the money I would have spent on Gotzendiener on something more worthy. 🙂
