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 Project, The 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 Story, Gotzendiener 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.
