Subject: the $4,200 pc engine game


this is my second time trying to send this to the list.  i hope it gets 
through this time because i have not included a picture.  anyway,  i 
have found the ultimate in rarity and incredulity.  i was at trader 
last week in akihabara doing some price shopping for those of you who 
were interested and sent me lists in time. there is a game in a dvd 
sized case for the pc engine.  i couldn't read the whole title but i 
did catch the part that said "indo no honou".  folks,  $4,200 US.  can 
you believe it?  can you explain it?!  i've never heard of this nor 
have i ever seen a price like this for any game.  to give you some 
basis for comparison: 
darius alpha- $680
dracula x- $115

    what's going on? please explain.  thanks, george

This is undoubtedly:

Akiyamajin no Suugaku Mystery- Hihou Indo no Honoo wo Sisyu Seyo
(NHCD4001)

I was a promotional only sort of title, very few copies of it
were made (hence the extreme rarity and high price that it fetches).
Last I heard it was getting $1,500 per copy.

It has 2 parts, one is an interactive comic, the other is a quiz
sort of game.  Both parts appears to have math problems in them.
Of course they are completely in Japanese, so soem knowledge is
needed to get anywhere in them.

As far as I have been able to get in them with my limited Japanese 
language skills, it is rather well done.  Certainly not going
to unseat DracX for gameplay, but the style and animation used in the
game beat a lot of the "less advanced" PCE games that hit the markets.

(I would love to see any images, if you can email them to me
I can put them up on pcecp.com -- I do have a copy of this title,
it came in a jewel case with no manual, only backing art, so I
do not know if it is 'compelte' or truly missing the manual since
I have no idea how it was actually distributed.  It is included
on PCECP, but I have not had a chance to uplaod images for it yet)

Anyone else care to chime in and fill in the missing details ?

Subject: #pcengine debuts on Internet Relay Chat's EFNET


I am proud to announce the debut of #pcengine on the EFNET IRC network.

Gabe is the bot for this channel, and I am usually known as gabex.  Feel 
free to discuss the NEC Turbo/PCE systems, games, and programming scene (or 
any other games and systems), but try to avoid religion or politics (unless 
no one's talking!).  People who speak all languages are welcome.  Basic 
rule:  Don't ask where to get copyrighted software.  You may discuss using 
your own backups of copyrighted software but not where to obtain software 
you do not own.

If you are unfamiliar with IRC, check out the following programs:

Windows: http://www.mirc.com
Mac: http://www.ircle.com
Unix/Linux: http://www.xchat.org

A good server to use is irc.easynews.com.  Once connected, choose your 
handle by typing /nick YourHandle at the prompt, and then /join #pcengine.

There are plenty of IRC primers on the Internet.  Remember, Google is your 
friend!

Look forward to seeing you there,

Gabe Green
