  2. Brent, I totally agree with you about the Turbografx-16/PC Engine sound. It's very crisp sounding when compared to the Genesis and SNES. In fact, it was my favorite sounding console (music wise) during the 16 bit era.

    So far, this is my favorite episode of new season. Thanks for giving the Turbografx-16/PC Engine a whole episode to itself. Hope there's a part 2 down the line.

  3. There's a part in New Adventure Island that's nearly identical to part of the Beatle's "Back In The USSR".
