Subscribe to Mistah MegaManFan for new content daily! Today we’re taking a look at Hudson Soft Vol. 8 on The PC Engine Files, better known as YouYou Jinsei Victory Life. For gamers in the U.S. it would be better understood as The Game of Life, which it is very clearly based on and works in almost the exact same way. If you’re not familiar with Life here’s a shorthand version — it’s Mario Party without the mini games.
You spin the wheel, you move your piece around the board, and whatever event you land on either takes away or gives you money based on a real event (tax refund, car repair, marriage, casino winnings, et cetera). It’s not the most interactive PC Engine game you’ll ever play but if you just want to spin and watch cut scenes it’s okay. Thanks for watching!
