Re: How's your TurboGrafx 16/PC Engine Going on

I need a recommendation(s) for a possibly last PC engine game:

But 1st, my modest, but satisfying collection:

US Turbografx 16 games:
Bonk's Adventure
Bonk's Revenge
Blazing Lazers
Dungeon Explorer
Keith Courage
Legendary Axe
Military Madness
Neutopia
Ninja Spirit

Jpn PC Engine games:
Armed F
Bomberman '93
Dragon Saber
Dragon Spirit
FinalBlaster
Galaga '88
Space Invaders
Super Star Soldier

I just want 1 more worthwhile but inexpensive game to fit in a 9-card holder for my import set.
Any suggestions?

Probably not interested in the Sega ports, other Bombermans, Devil's Crush, or R-Type, as I have other ports or options for them. But I'll hear reasoning for anything.

Okay you want an import specifically?

My obvious pick:

We have almost the same PC Engine games. My suggestion would then be Shubibinman 2, 1943 Kai, either Alien or Devil Crush (Crash), or perhaps Air Zonk. I never owned Valkyrie, so I can't attest to it, but it always looked cool. Some people like Tower of Druaga, but I never got into it. It's cheap though. Final Soldier would round out your Soldier collection.

I do have Namco Museum Vol 5 in PS1, so I think I'm set on Valkyrie.
I know Dragon Spirit is there too, but that's a special case for me (I love the home ports of that in particular).
Without Namco Vol 5, Valkyrie would be a must have for me.

Yeah, I am considering Final Soldier or Alien Crush (as I passed up the US version).
Shubibinman 2 is a new one for me though. Looks fairly unique.

Really, my import hu-card set was going to be a bit odd anyway. My last one might just go to whatever I find the best deal on.

Thanks for the recs so far.
I'm in no hurry, but gives me cards to look for.

Alright Bone, I'm getting Valkyrie anyway 8) . I figure it's different enough from the arcade to justify (maybe) and I think I have enough regular shooting games (even if some are a little basic).

So there I go.
I may well end up with another Soldier game or Alien Crush one day (and do another set of 9 while I'm at it), but I'll have to wait for a good deal there.
Of course, everdrives/etc and ports suit me well too, so maybe I really am done after this.

Cool little system and I have no regrets passing on the mini and concentrating on the real deal.

The kids and I played some PC Engine the other day. Mostly Ninja Gaiden for the TR thread and some Bomberman 94 for quite a while after.

I started up Cho-Aniki when they left. My youngest came by again. At first he looks incredibly perplexed and asks, “What is THIS?” After a couple of minutes he says, “Oh I know. This is someone’s weird dream, right dad?” and he wandered off. It gave me a chuckle.
