    Fantastic stuff, RvR! Quite a hard-fought win -- it must feel so satisfying to have it knocked out -- thank you for persevering. :D

    Battle Golfer Yui finally got that fan translation. Goati rates it very, very highly! I guess the story is bonkers, and the gameplay quite good.

    Oh, yes, I should have mentioned that Chessmaster was a very early -- and, I suspect, rushed -- title for the SNES. I suppose it stands to reason that a chess title, with its inherent lack of visual...

    Interesting -- did Sega Chess have a knight and rook (and king) against a lone king for Chessmaster? If so, that should be a quick win, and it'd be very weird if it couldn't find the checkmate.

    The Chessmaster GG opening book appears to be broken, sadly. Or, more correctly, it seems to be only one move deep.

    On NES Chessmaster, I can get as much as 10-11 moves deep in certain openings...
