Yeah, the PC Engine/Turbografx-16 is great little system. I played the crap out of The Legendary Axe, World Class Baseball, and R-Type back in the day.

Has Konami announced any dates for pre-orders/release?

I would put Legendary Axe up there with some of the best 2D games ever. It's that good to me. I didn't care for the sequel that much though.

I'm not sure they could put anything on the system that I would want that I don't already have. HappyConsoleGamer mentioned some unreleased in the United States titles. If they do that then I would get it.

I totally agree with you. Other than the stupid way the game centers your character when you walk to the left, it's a great game.

I liked the sequel. I thought the music was way better, and that crazy ass ending in the Japanese version with the topless woman (she has a red shirt in the US version) attacking you while you're sitting on the throne laughing is such a great WTF moment.

My favorite music track in Legendary Axe 2:

Also, just wondering if you got your copy of Bloodstained? I just got mine in the mail today. Can't wait till the weekend to play it.

Legendary Axe was pretty much the filled out home game version of Jungle Hunt / Jungle King to me. I remember watching one of the original commericals with the game and seeing the final boss, that I didn't know at the time, and thinking that you have to fight that? I think the final boss was one of the original large screen bosses that surprised me back then.

Actually, I can't remember finishing Legendary Axe 2. I know I got to the last boss and had trouble with him. I remember another reason I wasn't too fond of it was because it didn't have that jungle setting and the game had a darker theme. I do remember liking that first stage music and a few other tracks. But I prefer pretty much everything about the original game over the sequel. But I'll go back and play them again one day. I know I still own both of them.

Yeah Bloodstained showed up today. I don't know if I should be pleased or shocked that they shipped it in a box that says Fangamer and Bloodstained. But I'm keeping that box as part of the overall package. I haven't played the 8-bit game yet. I might wait for the complete package in August before getting started on all of it. But I'm happy that it's here. Also that Ayami Kojima artwork is pretty good. And we are getting a poster of it too which is cool.

Looking foward to this one next month on PS4 and Switch since it has that Contra Hard Corps look to it.

Too bad the port of Bloodstained for the Switch is so godawful.  I guess I won’t be playing it.

Yeah, I totally forgot I had pre-ordered it on Amazon. The frame rate and weird glitches really mess up the flow of the game. Hopefully they can iron out the glitches with firmware updates. But until then, I'll just continue to play it on the PS4 Pro.

After seeing this ported to the Switch, I immediately cancelled my pre-order for Raiden V because I know it won't run at 60fps.

Wish I'd have known about these issues a day or two sooner. The physical version I ordered just arrived. Hopefully those promised patches come quickly...

I tend to default to PS4 myself. Not that I don't like Nintendo games. But I seem to only get games made by Nintendo on Nintendo systems these days unless it's the rare exclusive. Xbox is more complicated since Microsoft and their scratching and breaking systems is why I'm still behind on playing a lot of older Xbox games.

I'm about to clear out the games that I want to play on portable systems. I mentioned before that I was never really fond of portable systems. Or portable versions of games. Now I think I'm around just a few games that I want to play on portables that never received console upgrades or are specifically on 3DS for the 3D effect. I just think it's ridiculous that a lot of games I grew up playing are regulated to a tiny screen when I used to play them on at least a 20 to 24 inch TV. Games I never played on PSP like Persona 2, I'll get for the PlayStation TV.

I'm getting it but the game list comes off a bit lazy. Untranslated Japanese games for an American release? Especially something like Snatcher. And no Legendary Axe, Splatterhouse, Valis series, and others. But English and Japanese Ys Books 1 & 2. Just strange.

This is something to watch.

Also look who is back.
