Hello, I am thinking about buying a turbo GRAPHX 16 but would like to know if it is worth the money. I know that there are some good games like the bonks, neutopias, and bomberman. Can someone tell me if the turbo graphx 16 is worth the money

What's a turbo duo

It's basically a TG16 with a super cd player built in it. Hence, it plays the impressive cd rom games plus all the orginal card games.

Why not just get VC games? Much cheaper and easier to find.

The vc doesn't have some good tg-16 games available like Legendary Axe, Aero Blasters, Raiden, Parasol Stars, and side arms.
Parasol Stars is released on the vc in Japan. The catch is Working designs localized the game in North America. Working Designs no longer exists as a company.Working Designs localized the following Hu Card and Cd Rom games for the Tg-16.
CadashParsol StarsCosmic Fantasy 2 -can't be released on the vc in Japan either. Telenet Japan went Bankrupt in 2007.Exile- Can't be released on the vc in Japan either. Same reason as Cosmic Fantasy 2Exile: Wicked Phenomenon- can't be released on the vc in Japan either. Same reason as Cosmic Fantasy 2Vasteel
There are other companies that made tg-16 games but can't release on the vc because they no longer exist, or the Company doesn't support the vc.

It's worth the money-if you have a lot of it (and time) to spend on it.Some of the better TG-16 games are pretty expensive and tough to track down, so I guess that depends.

Turbo Duo consoles are notoriously unreliable, especially the sound capabilities on them. After going through three of them, I finally invested in a PC Engine CoreGrafx 2 system and added on the Super CD-Rom attachment to it with the Arcade Card Pro. I've had it for almost three years and it still works perfectly.
As was stated, some of the better PC Engine/TG16 games are expensive and difficult to find. I've spent years building my collection. That being said, it was a hell of a lot of fun doing it. Still one of my favorite consoles.

Corbie you would know about the Turbo, all SHUMP fans should!

I say its worth it because the console has a out ragious number of shumps (shoot em ups) Most of them are very good
