Reminder that PC-8801 is actually one of the most content-rich and influential platforms ever.

On the Otaku no Video special DVD booklet, there's a timeline between 1982 and 1985 that shows the most important events in history regarding general world news, cinema, animation, manga and technology
They mention both the Famicom and PC-88, not anything else. I think those 2 are the most iconic systems for the japanese.

Wasn't there someone in the OVA playing an 88 game?

Honestly weird they glossed over pc engine but ok.

>> No.5851979

Cool but how do I play this thing and its games? And in a language that isn't cryptic symbols?

>> No.5852420

gif is perfectly acceptable. It's capable of displaying 256 colors simultaneously while the PC88 only used 8 colors. If you look closely you'll see that nearly all games in the chart use the same 3bit RGB colors even when they nominally had the expanded palette of V2 mode at their disposal.

Just because it is interesting or important doesn't mean you'd actually want to play the games on it. It is still an 80s home computer, with the sort of responsiveness and framerate you'd expect.

You can play the games on a PC-98 emulator, if you don't believe me.

>> No.5852445

You download the games:
You get a PC88 emulator for your OS, for instance XM8 or M88kai.
You insert disk 1 into drive 1 and disk 2 into drive 2 and restart the system. Try 4MHz V1 mode first and switch to V2 mode if requested.

You might be able to tell based on the picture.

he asked to play them in a language that wasn't cryptic but thanks anyways.

>> No.5852556

Are you blind? Where is the cryptic language for Sokoban, DoorDoor, Dragon Slayer, Hydlide, Thexder, Xanadu, A-Train, SeeNa, Blassty, Final Zone, WiBArM, Silpheed, Valis, Ys, The Scheme, Final Crisis or Popful Mail in the image?
Now obviously some of them like Ys or Popful Mail actually have Japanese text in the game but you should be able to find out that much yourself.

>> No.5852558

Nice macros, where did they come from?

Bouken Roman remains my go-to recommendation for anyone wanting a great PC-88 action-platformer. It's a long-forgotten precursor to Commander Keen, but from an alternate universe called SystemSoft Japan.

The thing that's really good about these old japanese computers is that most of them are uncontaminated by western filth unlike the consoles.

It's a weird game. They tried to transfer strip game logic to a RPG so the girls you rescue in the tower become less and less dressed. You don't have sex with any of them.
Chaos Angels, where you fight and ravish monster girls, and Rance, where you can rape almost every girl in the long run, did it better.

This suggests at most they're the most iconic systems for otaku in the early 90s. That's a sub-subculture of "the japanese".

Thanks, dude
Which emulator would you personally recommend for Windows?

I assume the issue with .gif is more that the file could be animated and include a jumpscare.

Princess Tomato was dropped from the list since the original platform was PC98.

What do you mean?
The PC-88 was also 'iconic' for Japanese salaryman, as it was a popular office computer.

It came out for the PC98 four months before the PC88.

Oh, interesting. I thought of it as an iconic PC-88 game.

PC-88 is super comfy, a z80 and lovely FM synths. Dragon Buster is a particular favourite of mine.

What would you suggest were the most iconic systems released between 1982 and 1985 for non-otaku japanese, then?

PC98 for its role in business.

Actually, I think I was wrong, and the booklet mentions PC-98, not PC-88.
