Old Chat is back!

By popular demand, we've rolled back to Old Chat. Lacks a lot of bells and whistles of the new chat, but what good are bells and whistles if they don't work right? I'll be continuing to try fixing the new chat, but for now, it is back to tried & true.

Work is underway to add collection management to the game pages, as well as some retooling of other game page features and javascript throughout the site. Since I'm too lazy to set up a non-production test server, things may look a bit wonky or break temporarily until I'm done breaking things.

Attention DuoPhiles: In the not so distant future, you will start seeing new features appear on the pages in the Game Database. One of which is the ability to flag a game and its constituent parts (case, manual, etc...) as "in your collection".

Are You a DuoPhile?

What is a DuoPhile? How can I tell if I am one? Am I contagious?

Exposure to TurboGrafx-16 or Turbo Duo console gaming may result in a number of distinctive behavioral traits which are characteristic of a DuoPhile, such as:

  • Compulsion to collect anything even remotely related to NEC or TTI, even loose copies of Deep Blue or Timeball.
  • Obsession with amassing encyclopedic knowledge about video game history, particularly of the 8 and 16-bit eras.
  • Difficulty maintaining conversations about topics other than TurboGrafx games and the virtues of the platform.

While there is no cure for this condition, a rewarding and fulfilling life can still be had. If you have experienced any of the symptoms above, we encourage you to take advantage of the DuoPhile.com support group and informational resources to learn more about living with your condition.

  • 144 cataloged games...
  • ...are tagged 1302 times in...
  • ...834 page scans from 37 magazines.

Be advised that DuoPhiles are in fact highly contagious and the associated behaviors are easily transmissible to other gamers. Please practice responsible gaming.
