The NEC PC-FX console itself was considered a failure in 1994, but then came this FXGA version for MS-DOS PCs. Not only is it the full video game system on a 16-bit ISA card, but it also adds a 3D graphics chip and software development options! Also dragonfly dinosaurs.

That dinosaur animation vs the PlayStation dinosaur animation

Such an odd bit of gear. I reckon a TV tuner in the PC with the PC-FXGA plugged into it would be cool to see as well.

I bought an NEC Home Theater receiver back in 1988 and it was a very advanced unit. NEC was ahead of their time. Enjoyed the video, especially the dinosaurs and dragonfly sequence. Thanks for another excellent video!

It's really weird seeing computer chips branded "Kubota", because the most common thing that company is known for making is farm tractors.

Man, ... there is no good reason for this to exist. It’s just an obscenely over complicated CD-ROM interface that has the side effect of holding your computer hostage while it’s in use. Like... why?? Haha 😄

I can only imagine how the guy that lent you this was sweating when you said "and now we are going to try these" while showing the sealed CD cases.

The fact that they went through the trouble of making this thing and then they didn't bother to convert the signal to digital so that users could at least use the same monitor is baffling. Also, as a member of a half-japanese household, it makes perfect sense.

That card feels like a development machine made commercial. Theoretically, you can load your own PC-FX builds onto it, and have pretty much a full PC-FX console ready to go on a second monitor. It would be like instead of a Net Yaroze PS1 being a separate, stylist black console you connect to the PC, it's just a card you slot in and plug into your TV. Funky.

A Dragonfly

"You crushed my flower, dinosaur. I'm gonna lead you off a canyon, somehow become five times my normal size, catch you on my back mid fall, and introduce you to my family."

I never thought today would be the day I saw a T-Rex riding a Dragonfly...

We need an HD remaster of A Dragonfly immediately.

Did they ever port Doom to this thing? I'd imagine it would be more like HDoom.

The T-Rex and dragonfly animation is what sent this episode over the top
