Neutopia? That's 8-bit. Technically speaking, the TG-16 was never actually a 16-bit machine, it just used two 8-bit processors in conjuction and called it 16-bit(cuz 8+8=16, rt? )

Ah, so NEC used the same standards as Atari.
I'm not convinced, it sure looks and sounds like a 16-bit machine (whereas the Jaguar clearly did NOT look like a 64-bit machine), I'm gonna look this up.

Edit:
The TurboGrafx-16 featured a 16-bit custom video color encoder chip, 16-bit video display controller, and an 8-bit CPU with an integrated custom programmable sound generator.
Ah, that's why it looks and sounds as good or better than the other 16-bit machines.
So 16-bit didn't mean dual-8-bit CPU, it just meant 16-bit GPU.

Guys. You know how in Zelda 2 there is this infamous quote: "I Am Error"?
Well, the meme's getting old, and Error is that person's name, it's not a mistranslated quote. That's all I felt like saying.

Hey all,
Long time reader, first time poster! lol

I just finished Kid Icarus last night. I found it pretty hard.

Anyway, once I finished it I happened across a video review, and learnt there were power-up like a crystal forcefield, and long arrows. Furthermore, you could free other angels and stuff. I had absolutely no idea!

It looks like it would be a fair bit easier with all that kind of stuff. I thought only feathers and health worked, because they happened automatically when you bought them.

Ah well... might have to try blast through it again!!!

@noblo.... Welcome to NL... you found Kid Icarus pretty hard. Pretty Hard? Its one of the hardest games on the NES I finished it without codes and had the same reaction though. Oh that would have made things easier lol.

@slapshot82 Haha hey dude, the beginning was so so unbelievably ridiculous hard, but after the first world I found it got tonnes easier. The bosses were fairly easy as well. When I beat the 2nd boss though the lava changed colour to the colour of the health pools so I jumped in and by the time I realised that my health was getting sucked away i was dead. That was frustrating!

That said, the game was so addictive that I always felt it was wanting me to have another crack.
