That's a good way to put it I suppose, some of the golfers do kind of look fairly cheesy, but what really is, is that horribly amusing female voice belting out ON THE GREEN.

 

Honestly if the Switch were a primary handheld to me I'd buy it, but with the Switch facing my arcade cabinet on the opposite wall I just can't see a reason.  I did get it on ios for when I'm stuck on the go, and I have a dump of the arcade board on my android tablet with neo.emu. :)

Wrong! If you like something, or have ever liked something in the past, you must buy it AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.

At least that's what the voices inside my head are saying. Because I'm not gonna spend all my hard earned money on clothes or books, dammit.

So the Switch was getting me excited to get a Neo Geo, but after looking at prices I think the Switch may have to do!  $7 dollars sure beats paying $7000 for a game...lol

 

So far I have Metal Slug and Turf Masters,  but would like to pick up Metal Slug 3, Nam 1975, King of Fighters 98' (not really a fighting game guy, but i've heard this is one of the best, and Shock Troopers

 

I'm also interesed in Alpha Mission II, but have heard there are much better SHMUP's on the NEO GEO so think I will hold out. 

 

I hope HAMSTER just keeps on porting these things until the best of the library is available

 

I'd really like to see:

 

-Blazing Star

-Metal Slug 2

-Spinmaster

-Pulstar

-Aero Fighters 2

-Ghost Pilots

-Magician Lord

 

What else would you like to see on the eshop from the NEO GEO?

Good selection. I've got your entire like to see list other than pulstar which I tend to find a bit annoying.

Hamster is crushing it with these Neo Geo ACA ports...

 

The Switch is more or less becoming my portable Neo Geo machine at this point.  I hope they keep them coming!!

Their online social media account said so far over 200K games sold just on Switch alone and growing.  Given the very few titles they have on there compared to the stuff Sony has and being on the eshop market about 6 weeks now that's impressive.

No doubt. It was cool to see Blazing Star on the eshop today.

For sure.  Purchasing that one at my earliest convenience.  May not need Pulstar with a great horizontal shooter like that available..
