This week’s review is now online! And boy, have I got a treat for you if you’ve never seen this game. Even if you have, I’m pretty this is one those gifts that keeps on giving whether you want it to or not.
I was in contact with a YouTuber not too long ago who was selling his TurboGrafx-16 console and some games and I got a deal I think. I was never really into the console before, although I thought it could be fun, I definitely consider myself a fan of the thing now. So I played all the games I got with it, along with several others through Magic Engine emulation. But then I saw the amount of Japanese games for the thing and got curious.
I whipped out the ol’ Wii and got to perusing the Virtual Console for import titles to buy and play. The PC Engine itself is a bit cost prohibitive at the moment, especially with the CD addon, and I wanted to play some games on my TV so it seemed natural. Then I ran across Cho Aniki (sometimes referred to as Chou Aniki) and… wow. Just simply wow. Watch and learn. I thought Parodius had some crazy stuff! And it does. But this is a bit more balls-out “in your face”, I suppose. And there are like, sequels which get even better/worse. Japan, tsk tsk.
