well maybe little is a misnomer as it's actually pretty damn gigantic but I do love the PC-FX and I am hoping this series does well and more people get into it!

Great video, probably my favourite failed console out there, its quite sad the console never gained any momentum in Japan as it had such great potential for 2D games, and its quite difficult to get into without knowledge of the Japanese language.

Very excited to see the whole series though, hoping to learn something new, as there isnt too much coverage about this system out there. :)

Yup, thats always the saddest thing with these failed consoles with short lifespans to me, we never got to see the real potential of them, and I would expect that at least in the case of the PC-FX, homebrew support is non-existent

yeah there is zero PC-FX community and thats a bummer because the SDK was literally sold with the PC-FXGA, so all the software needed to develop for the PC-FX is readily available
