    The next PCE game I have to review is awful and I’m pretty drunk right now (hey, it’s Thursday, right?!), so instead of a real update, here are a couple of lovely Nico-videos:

    A collection of ads from the early era of the PC Engine, circa 1988-89. You’ll notice that NEC (a) likes needless English (b) has a sense of advertising style that rivals Sony Computer Entertainment’s.

    It sticks in my craw, for some reason, that Victory Run received 15/30 from PC Engine Fan readers. The game I have to review next, which (like I said) is one of the crappiest titles in the entire library, scored two points higher. This is completely unfair. Victory Run was nothing new by the time it was released, but it was solid, had peppy music, and was that perfect mix of difficult without being frustrating. Give it at least a 20, guys, good God. Check out what happens when you win the entire race in this ~20-minute video.
