  1. I need this in my life!!!
  2. Not yet, is there a way to order the special edition?
  3. It’s OK. Streets of Rage was better. Mutation Nation was better. Sengoku 3 was absolutely better.
  4. Just picked up a copy of a Japanese only game Ragnagard off the streets believe it or not, known in Japan as Shin-Oh-Ken (神凰拳 lit. "God Phoenix Fist"), is 2D arcade fighting game developed by System Vision and published by Saurus for the Neo Geo arcade, Neo Geo CD and Sega Saturn. The game's characters are all based on Shinto deities. It tries really hard to be Killer instinct although it isn’t. I kind of like what they tried here but this is not a very good game. The only reason I got it because it was super cheap as it goes for $600-$1,200 on eBay and price charts have it around there as well. I was spooked as the PCB’s had two different color pin outs and after inspecting the cart it had some marks indicating it had been opened. Turns out the board is legit and so are the chips so there was a good chance this was sent back to SNK at some point for repair and they used a different board. I can’t say I recommend the game but it isn’t terrible, just not as good as it should be. It’s extremely hard and your opponents perform super desperation movies at will and their defense is so good that killing them fast is only reserved for expert players. Like all SNK games the depth is incredible and these types of games can be appreciated only after some serious practice as each character has specific moves and defenses that make not one more powerful than the other so it’s quite involved and a different style is needed to beat each character, spamming will get you killed right quick.

  6. Recent pickups of 3 Neo Geo games. I got these from the original owner for real low cheap. He was a kid when he got them and still has his system. Just one of those unicorn children that had a dad who bought them Neo Geo like it was Nintendo. So amazing. Look at the original prices!! None of the games came with manuals so if anyone has them please help me out!!!!!!!!!
  7. WOW this thread is still going!!! I've been neglecting you guys so I am back. Ill post up. I used to love this thread until Photobucket held the world hostage. Recent pickups of 3 Neo Geo games. I got these from the original owner for real low cheap. He was a kid when he got them and still has his system. Just one of those unicorn children that had a dad who bought them Neo Geo like it was Nintendo. So amazing. Look at the original prices!! I recently picked up a WII U Smash/Splatoon Combo in the box for $50 so I am enjoying that system a lot. I got that Starfox game for $13 shipped and it's actually two complete disc games which is nice. Gravity Rush was a gift and is extremely Japanese I have no idea what to expect with this game but from what I have seen it's a girl that moves around like she is being blown by a huge wind and you see up her skirt. She also has a cat that follows. Akira was also a gift and I imagine unplayable as it is in Japanese and is a RPG of sorts. It'll look nice on my shelf.
  8. I've been lucky finding bags. Be careful there are fake ones on ebay and are obvious to Neo Geo fans. Phot0bucket is back up so I'll be posting a lot more again
  9. I need one of these, how do the shoulder buttons work? Are they mapped for certain games?
  10. Sweet!!! Sell me some carts you must have doubles!!!
  11. Some random pickups out in Philly, always need more Neo Geo bags, this is my 2nd one. Turbo MVS controller is absolutely necessary for Viewpoint. My fingers almost fell off and you have to switch between turbo and not for charge shots. This game is impossible.
  12. It’s been a while since I posted but Photobucket finally caved last may so I think hosting is free again. Let's hope it stays that way. Just got back from Vegas and visited a nice game store that also had a small arcade. Good selection albeit small. This fighting game ain’t bad, lots of great moves and varied characters. Colors could be better, seems a bit washed out for my tastes but it appears to just be a styling choice. I had the Sharp Twin for a while but got me two Monitors; they take Composite, S-Video, and RGB. Score. Build in speaker too and also a pass through.

My fingers almost fell off and you have to switch between turbo and not for charge shots. This game is impossible. Pickups from Sage Mantis in VA, I 100% completed Super Metroid and I am convinced it is a perfect game. What a masterpiece. Lester not so much. Got the power. Nice Craigslist finds. The game gear stuff was so cheap like $5 a game. I was so lucky. This thing was nuts. It was like $10,000 brand new. I just paid $50 for it from some old lady who has hundreds of games in her garage. Also picked up two Namco guns and Point blank for the PS1 as well as Time Crisis. You hook it up to an XBOX/XBOX 360 PS2/PS3 or any PCvia USB and it simply makes you sweat bullets. I played NFS most wanted on it and you are so sore afterwards, very responsive and amazing.
  13. I'm back after a while!!! I love this thread!!!
  14. I got me one of these. So loud and clicky. I love it!!!
  15. Some of my recent Neo Geo pickups. Great games to have and get them while they are worth less than a Honda Accord. Samurai Shodown IV. Amazing game for the CD and incredible Grafx/Animation. So many different fighting styles to keep the replay value for years. Metal Slug 2. Absolutely better than X after a recent play though. I am thinking of having it modded to reduce the slowdown. Waku Waku 7, what a weird game!!! Crazy fighting mechanics and style. Beautiful game and is now a staple in my cab.
  16. I had a few pickups these last few months and figured I’d update my finds. Famicom Classic. Essentially the as the same exact thing as the NES classic but readily available so anyone looking for a NES Classic should get this. Slightly different games but everything is playable, Mega Man is Rock Man, Zelda still in English. It has two hard wired MINI controllers and they are TINY. Some games like Metroid & Zelda actually go through the Famicom Disc System and have loading screen and the extra audio sounds. I also bought the Disc System Stand that is essentially a drawer. Samurai Shodown IV. Amazing game for the CD and incredible Grafx/Animation. So many different fighting styles to keep the replay value for years. Metal Slug 2. Absolutely better than X after a recent play though. I am thinking of having it modded to reduce the slowdown. Waku Waku 7, what a weird game!!! Crazy fighting mechanics and style. Beautiful game and is now a staple in my cab. Garage Sale Pickups of PS1/PS2 stuff. $1 each. I think I did good.
  17. My recent pickups. I'm Super excited for KOF99.
  18. I just got Joe, what a terrible game!!!!
  19. Just got these guys the other day. Real Bout is a fantastic series. Haven't really tried thrash rally yet. Love collecting Neo Geo
  20. How much was that Multicart? How does it work?
