Nectaris looked promising. The opening cut scene seemed exciting and the name was unfamiliar to me at first. A few seconds into the game I realized my mistake — this PC Engine game was known in the U.S. as Military Madness. It’s a turn based strategy game where you move pieces around a map and exchange fire in an attempt to achieve the map’s objectives.

I’m not a fan of this style of game in general (with the possible exception of Mega Man Battle Network) and I’m less a fan of playing them in Japanese when I can’t understand the options.
