EAB Multi Platform League - Round 4 - Game Vote

Voting starts now (30.03.2009) and will end on Monday (06.04.2009) :

- Vote for five games.
- Your first choice gets 5 points, second 4 pts, third 3 pts, fourth 2 pts, fifth 1 pt.
- Last rounds winner (TodaysForgotten votes get doubled (1st = 10 pts, 2nd = 8 pts, etc.)
- Remember to choose games suitable for competition play. If you don't, then you will get the treat of a PM from me, asking you to change your vote. If you still don't change it your vote will be discounted. If you aren't sure feel free to ask.
- Edited votes will be discounted (unless you are told to edit it, and even then you can only edit the game(s) that aren't suitable) - so think before you post. Also you cannot vote for games that have already been played.

(Courtesy of Graham )

The system you can choose games from for round 3 is : TurboGrafx 16 / PC Engine

Gentlemen, vote your games

Hmm... well okay. Maybe you take the time to decide first (like I do ) and then post your choice It's not like you don't have the full week to vote and you already have the two times bonus, so you don't get extra points for a fast vote

I... I don't know about any games for these platforms.

I know hardly nothing about them...0_o

All I know is there is Devil Crash ( or Devil's Crush if you're not from Japan...) for TB16. That's good.

Err... Anybody know if the TB16 has got something like HoL or Lemon? That would be nice, help me pick out something.

What kind of games are you into Predabot? TG16 was known to have a lot of arcade ports to it. That may help some. I dont know of any resources like HOL for the TG16 but i could probably give you some names of games when i know what you like. This was one of my favorite consoles as a tike.

i have attached a list of games from my computer if it helps any.

All right! I'm wading trough, and I think I've found some titles lads. Thanks for the intel.

1. Devil Crash
2. Operation Wolf
3. Dracula X ( gotta' love Castlevania)
4. STRIDER!! ( yeah, the arcade is the awesomest, but maybe there's something to gain from the PC engine as well)
5. I've got nothin'... Ah what the hell... R-type!

If the PC Engine CD is included I would've chosen Rondo of Blood, too. But that's another console, right (@TCD)?
Like the Sega Genesis and the Sega CD are different consoles...

Yup, please no CD games Can be a pain in the a** to get them and also our friends from Oz would thank us for the 400 MB downloads So we would only play cartridge based games (though some NeoGeo roms are rather big too...).

There are zips of these PC Engine CD-games and Sega CD-games with the audio tracks converted to mp3s. That's supported by every emulator and reduces the size of these games to less than 100MB.
For example Rondo of Blood is only ~60MB.

Still it's a different system (and 60MB are still quite large)...

Cool, here's my opportunity to *FINALLY* try this console as I always failed at some point into getting it working in the past...
You guys choose a nice game for a noobie to try and fell into, please, I'll post my votes later when I'll check yours

I can really recommend this PC Engine-exclusive little gem called "Turrican".

To be perfectly serious now...
My point of view on this is as follows: If a game is available for various platforms - choose the Amiga version if it doesn't have some kind of a huge FLAW that makes it very bad.
To really experience a different platform - always choose a game you had not played before.
So I'll not be with you on this, sorry
