i'm looking forward to this... are you covering the japanese side of things? or just sticking to your side of the pond? our PAL version wasn't anything to write home about, there were no native PAL releases for a start, just the US versions that ran a little slower... although mine was modified from new to play US or JPN carts, i still ended up buying a PC Engine so i could run games from my everdrive at full speed (i also prefer the small footprint of the Japanese version)
Woohoo, a TurboGrafx podcast! I've got your show set up on gamebygamepodcast.com using the information you've provided so far, and I'll see if I can get you an audio submission in time for the first episode.
i started listening last night, but had to pause, because sleep... love your take on the obligatory-podcast-robot-corrections-voice, nice touch just got to Ferg's submission, so i've paused again to drop a quick note to let you know that i'm really liking what i'm hearing so far and i'm looking forward to the podcast being carried on itunes (i'm lazy and i like my podcasts to show up on their own and surprise me while i'm listening at work... also, when i download them and play on my laptop, i get distracted very easy and end up pausing them a lot... like now...) again i'm gonna wave my hands in the air and encourage you to cover japanese releases, it'd be a crying shame to only touch the US releases, especially considering the ease of playing them, either with an everdrive or in emulation...
i'm assuming you already know about these, but on the off chance that you don't, i can HIGHLY recommend Chris Bucci's TurboViews series on youtube, he's been reviewing and playing through the TG16 library for nearly 10 years now (i was following his pinball reviews before that because they're so well made, and he definitely he carried that quality over to the TG16 reviews)
anyway, loving your work, i appreciate the effort that all podcasters put into the hobby, and you have yourself a regular listener, keep it up... and thank you
It was a terrific episode. My podcast was going to be Atari made games only right before I started, so maybe there's hope for Bryce covering the Japanese stuff (as long as there's translations, I suppose).
If it wasn't for disappointment, I wouldn't have any appointments.
Bobbi, I will definitely give the PC Engine side some thought, it just seems overwhelming to say I'm going to tackle that library out of the gate, especially since I'm not sure if I'm going to like doing this long term. I know Rondo of Blood will be covered for sure, but beyond that I'm not sure yet. Just browsing the list, I'm very interested in the Sega ports, some of the Konami stuff (Gradius, Salamander, Parodius), Ninja Ryūkenden (Ninja Gaiden), Tatsujin (Truxton), and others, but I'll have to sit down and look through the game list and make sure what I pick has US translations available, or make sure the title isn't language dependent. Stay tuned!
Shinto, thanks for adding the show to the Game By Game website! And thank you to both Shinto and Ferg for the Episode 1 feedback, and Shinto for Episode 2 feedback; I really appreciate it!
I am still trying to decide if I want to do a website, and if I do how I want to host it... I'm contemplating a retro-90's style site on Neocities at the moment, but hand coding HTML is somewhat time consuming, so I might go with some blog site (ala Ferg's Blogspot page) or Wordpress, something easy to configure and slap content onto. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on that please let me know.

You know what Bobbi, an idea just struck me... do you have a greatest hits list of PC Engine stuff you would like to see covered? If so just drop me an email with a list and I'll start looking through games.
I also forgot to thank you for the tip about Turboviews... I have watched a lot of his stuff and loved it! I was desperate to get some idea of what to play when I first got the system, and his videos helped me out quite a bit. I'll remember to reference his stuff when I can when working on the episodes.
i don't have a list as such... i tend to treat the japanese games the same as the western ones, i give em a play and if i understand wtf is going on and enjoy myself, then i play it... tbh, i wouldn't for a second suggest you attempt to cover all the japanese ones, just the ones without too many language and/or culture barriers... i'll keep a notepad next to my pc engine and scribble down some suggestions as they occur to me...
(you could possibly do the occasional "tokyo-tastic" episode, in which you cover 3 or 4 japanese games, instead of a single western release, but in less detail than a regular episode? this could give you a break from doing deep research on one title, but still allow you to throw an episode out there if you're pushed for time or enthusiasm... just a thought)
i think mainly due to a lack of anything constructive to add, that wouldn't already be covered by a podcast's host(s)... i'd have to have an interesting story to impart and i'm not sure i have many of those in me... i won't say never though...
