Been playing Neo XYX the last couple of days, albeit on Dreamcast.. It's a decently made game, but it's a little buggy.. the small medals don't add up at the end of a stage, and I've had three different instances of the game completely freezing on me.. Buggy release, it seems. :|

That's a bummer to here. The quality of new DC releases are going down. After the Dux/Redux disaster, I don't think I'm goign to be dealing with NGDev or HuCast. At least Sturmwind was excellent. Hopefully it doesn't prevent others from releasing for the DC, because...

 

 

That's correct Vince!

 

For those that aren't familiar with this product. Knights Chance is a new gambling game that is during the medieval time period  The game will be soon released for the MVS system . Its also been mention that an AES release will debut shortly.

 

Jeff Kurtz (JMKurtz) at Neobitz is a popular and a respect member in the Neo-Geo community. He is a great programmer and trusted by many on the forums and outside the community. Unlike some members on the forums at neo-geo.com that have a checkered past, Jeff has gained the confidence from the Neo-Geo members overall. If you have questions on Knight's Chance, please contact him regarding this game or if you have questions regarding the Neo.

 

Here is a Youtube video to view it for yourself!

Any idea if this is going to be made for the DC?

 

Edit: Or NGCD or another 5th gen system, since it looks like it could be ported to those, too, graphics-wise.

I would like to see more of these Neo Geo releases being made available on the Neo CD. Last Hope is a great example that it is possible, and that one in particular also showed that you could have excellent visuals on the Neo CD, without long load times.

As far as I know. Its going to be for the MVS and AES! But you can e-mail Jeff and ask if its possible!

Hey I just got into neo geo this year by picking up a neo geo cd unit and been buying games to build my new collection.

I was wondering is last hope available for the neo geo cd?
If so where could I buy one at?

Thanks!

 

 

The original version of Last Hope was available on NGCD. I haven't seen it on Ebay for a while and it was going for over $100 the last time I saw it!

 Yes, some of the members were complaining about that on neo-geo.com forums as well. But I think the MVS version didn't have those types of problems. The reprints for XYX is going to improve their bugs for the MVS version (from what I heard) using wooden shells this time. ;-)

As an avid MVS gamer, I'd be a lot more excited about this thread if it didn't seem like an NG:Dev promo disguised as a Neo-Geo appreciation thread.

 

Maybe not enough NG owners? I know I only own a NGCD and NGPC. Perhaps a mod could split out the promo-y material into a separate thread.

I'm pretty sure this thread was designed largely as a catch-all for the promo stuff.  It just happens to be done in a way that's broad enough for everything else too.  Previously Neo Geo discussions popped up every now and again in the arcade section where nobody saw them.

 

Since I'm already posting, I recently snagged a buy-it-now for KoF 2003 MVS.  $56 shipped, with shockbox.  Because I'm such a cheapskate, I have very few shockboxed games and even fewer complete kits.  There were only two licensed games made after this one, so it will be the newest, and largest, Neo Geo game in my collection--I can't wait for it to get here.  What I'm reading suggests that it's a pretty big departure from the standard KoF gameplay.

Hi guys,

 

Was watching a review from "Classic Game Room" on Youtube about the Hyper Neo-Geo 64 system and the review on Samurai Shodown 64. Pretty good. Enjoy!

03 is one of my favorites in the series. It's got good move lists, good animation and graphics. The story is pretty weak but whatever.

Inexcusable. They had ample time to get it right.

Hi guys,

 

For those that are new in collecting for the Neo-Geo, here is a nice video that can help give you a general idea on what to expect. It was done in the Summer of 2013 by "Project COE"

 

On their Youtube About section, "Project COE is a one of a kind group. We pride ourselves in delivering quality reviews"

 

Enjoy this neat video.

I see that you live in NYC. Have you tried going to Chinatown at the local mom & pop stores in the local areas that handle video games!?

There is a place in the Bronx called Fordham Game World that I purchased my NGCD years ago. They relocated a few blocks over from the 4 line subway station.The guy still works there and fixes games systems and he did the lens for it! If you goggle the store, the number will pop up! I think he offers good rates!
