    Hi guys,


    Back with Scarlet Sprites with more of his awesomeness. Let's listen in on what he has to say about NGDEVTEAM and Kraut Buster shall we?


    zOQDhuWV_bigger.jpgScarlet Sprites@ScarletSprites NG Dev's Kraut Buster & The Dilemma https://youtu.be/JnNRl18WDMg
    And now the video.
    From the description,
    "NG Dev's latest Neo Geo game Kraut Buster is an interesting homage to Metal Slug, but it's a pricey one. With recent offerings beginning to find their way to the Nintendo Switch I question whether it is worth it to continue buying expensive new games made for old hardware."




    I'm a big fan of Scarlet sprites, I do think the ng dev team games are worth the initial offering ($500ish). I also can't blame him for selling his copy to get a big blue arcade machine. I do think kraut busters is a great game though..

    Hi guys,

    We're delighted to announce that our SNK books – NEOGEO: A Visual History and METAL SLUG: the Ultimate History – now each come with a free PDF version when ordered direct from Bitmap Books. A huge thanks to SNK for allowing this to happen. 1 of 2 #bitmapbooks




    Thats a very nice looking metal slug book, I think the art is metal slug is some of the best looking art on any video game ever....


    What metal slug game do you guys think has the best visuals? I really think metal slug 3 has some gorgeous ocean art!

    Hi guys,

    Alpha Mission II (ASOII #ラストガーディアン) shoot them up by #SNK 1991 Neo-Geo MVS, Neo-Geo AES #ネオジオ #arcade #RETROGAMING #NeoGeo



    I love aso II (alpha mission 2), such an awesome game with fantastic music. Yes its a bit bare bones compared to the later neo geo shoot em ups, but it was also an early game and still a lot of fun! This is one of the first aes games i ever bought!

  4. That's pretty crazy Joe cracked his controller from the top like that. I have my eye on a custom stick that a guy on the neo-geo forums make, i may get one before the year is over! 


    What Neo geo stuff have you guys broken over the years? The worst thing ive done is crack a tray on one or two aes game cases from being careless around my girlfriend's old cat. That was like 8 years ago before the prices skyrocketed... Now i treat all my aes stuff like a fine pieces of rare art lol.

    They both look great for their ages Zack. So glad to give a helping hand to you and now that you have them in your collection, we hope they give you many years of enjoyment. :)



    Thanks Anthony, I’ve gotten a ton of enjoyment out of metal slug 4 already!


    What do you AES collectors use as a memory card the neo save masta, original memory card, or something else?

    Maybe it's been posted, but I just found out:  Sadly the husband and wife duo behind the MAS sticks/superguns have passed in a fire. They were without doubt the biggest name in American-style arcade sticks to the point where I can't name a second one.  They greatly slowed down production after the 90's and early 2000's, but they were still making a few. I still have their Ebay store on watch to this day. (news link)


    Their remaining family has set up a (gofundme). I've been in the fire situation before, and it's rough enough without funerals to do too.


    Here are my MAS sticks, the left one has been and probably will always be my main controller for just about everything.  Neo Geo, Superguns, NT Mini, etc. I never new who was behind the MAS name until this news.


    I remember those massive MAS sticks and have used them often at buddies house back in the day. Very sad that they passed away and by fire, what a tragic way to go... I will donate and hopefully they can reach the goal in order to have a nice resting place.

    When it comes to Neo-Geo AES titles Zack, pretty important. I figured if I'm going the distance to spend good money on an AES game, I would like to have it complete. :)


    I'm really looking forward on seeing that 8 Man game from you bro. That game is fun to play. :)



    Yes I do think its important as well just so hard to get a decent deal on AES games these days... Thats why I consider things like buying without a manual, a thing that I would of never considered buying 10 years ago...


    I will post a picture of 8 man as soon as I get it in this thread. Its not far now as its in the US already in customs so probably a week or two at most! It's crazy to see another english original metal slug for sale again...

  8. How important is the instruction manual to have your AES games complete ? Out of my 19 aes games only 1 is missing the manual , Would you buy a high end AES game that is authentic but missing the instructions (I know its almost impossible to get a manual for a game that isn't common or somewhat uncommon and if you do find one its overly expensive)


    I know its not ideal but its a game I want badly so its something I'm really considering it..


    p.s. ive got a dog tag 8 man on the way ill post pics when it arrives :)

    New source for Neo Geo feet: https://retrofrog.net/products/neo-geo-aes-controller-rubber-feet-4-feet


    My Neo Geo slides around quite easily since I pulled the feet off to cut the motherboard, so I need to get some new feet for it. The feet on my AES controllers are also not very effective, so I want to get some feet for those as well.


    I somehow doubt that I'd do very well... besides, I spend so much money on games that I can't afford a decent camera!

    Thanks for the link Steven, I've been needing to replace the feet on several original controllers and its great to have a source.

    Hi guys,



    The video


    From the description,


    Now what do we have here? A rusty hulk of a door stop? A pretty paperweight? An extremely rare prototype? Or a retail rom on a strange cartridge? Well...it's a prototype / beta of the retail release of Samurai Shodown 64. Presumably it's from the AOU 1997 show / location test phase of the game. It has a lot of differences in the colors, art, camera and heads up display. But it's still an awesome 3D fighting game...that's for sure! and it's not every day you find a Neo Geo prototype. This is gameplay from Galford. The other nine characters will come in the next nine Thursdays "




    Wow Anthony awesome that you found that video and info. It does look pretty different graphically than the finalized version. Have you ever played the hyper Neo geo 64? I've never come across one but I have looked up all the games and I've played metal slug 6 on the metal slug collection for original xbox.

  11. Does anyone here have a Cracked or chunk or plastic missing on your personal AES systems? I've had two American and one Japanese systems over my Neo collection obsession and only one had a small chip missing. However a decent amount of systems I've seen for sale over the last 5 years have a chunk or crack in the shell body.


    I've been told a certain period of AES production consoles plastic bodies where more prone to cracking or chipping. However I've forgotten it if was the early, mid, or later system serial # ranges..

    Hi guys,

    La news à retenir today ? PixelHeart a récupéré les licences VISCO CORPORATION et tous les jeux NeoGeo AES sont réédités en version Japonais et US, à des tarifs abusé : c'est 400€ pièce. Oui, vous avez bien lu, 400€ pièce. Juste le jeu, zéro bonus contrairement à Pix'n Love.

    Holy smokes! I am definitely getting andro dunos 2 as it kind of reminds me of lightening force +andro dunos 1 ( thunder force 4). Now I've also got to grab Andro dunos 1 from them as well. It's going to be a real expensive purchase I better start saving now!


    Steven p- I too pick Terry as my main fighter for all the fighting games he is in. He is probably my favorite Neo geo character for sure. I hope you are enjoying your new game! It's always a good day when you get a new Neo game.

    lol yeah, I have AES Garou: Mark of the Wolves now. I've wanted this game for a while now, but the rarity and honestly mostly the price of it prevented me from getting it, but I found this copy in February and saved some cash over the past 2 months or so to get it. Thankfully, it didn't end up getting bought by someone else, or worse, bought and then placed on ebay with a significant price increase like the last copy that I found. This copy is in beautiful condition and far nicer than the one that I found earlier that's now on ebay (and still unsold, for that matter), so I'm actually glad that I missed that other copy.


    Now, I don't buy games to collect them, I buy games to play them, as they should be. I have not played it yet, but it's time to fix that right now~




    My Terry hat is too big to fit in the picture, sadly, but everyone knows that I have it. Getting Terry to sit down without falling over/off my desk is also really difficult, so I kind of have to prop him up on my AES and stuff. His hat comes off, too.

    Very nice pick up Steven! Thats the type of game to be proud of when you find it at a good price. I have also had something similar where I missed out on a game by a few minutes and later saw it on eBay for an inflated price. It really sucks but eventually you will find a nice condition game at a fair price if your patient enough.


    Do you play with any other characters besides Terry or is he the main player you pick over and over?

    Hey Steve, Undecided,Pancho, WRCN.


    Believe me the Hori Neo Geo Fighting Stick is really fantastic. To show you what I mean, Here's a video from lukemorse I posted years ago on how he refurnished and mod one, while discussing about these heavy duty bad boys. Enjoy. :)


    P.S.... WRCN, these were 3rd party sticks. Very well made and heavy as well to take abuse. Not cheap sadly. But well worth owning. :)





    Yes I’ve wanted one due to the turbo function which would be awesome for shoot me ups that require 1 button push each shot.


    I was looking for one a couple of years ago but most of them have rust  on them. At least all the ones I was looking at back then did..?



    I have 3 original aes fight sticks and I’m going to mod 1 with sanwa buttons to make it easier to mash on shoot em ups!

  15. Happy belated birthday to the Neo geo tread! Sorry im late to the party but my grandma was visiting at my house this morning and got super sick and we had to call the paramedics, I watched as they had to carry her out on a stretcher... She is the oldest family member at the ripe old age of 86 and I'm so stressed out ive been looking for a new dreamcast game or two to help me cope..


    I would like to thank Anthony for all the info he uploads and his love for the Neo geo. This thread really makes Atari age that much cooler! Thanks

    I'm up to the idea fellas. It's been a while since I done any Neo-Geo but here's my old pics of NGDEVTEAM and Neobitz collection. In fact NGDEVTEAM even posted it up on Twitter.







    The Official NEO-GEO Thread! - Page 714 - Classic Console Discussion -  AtariAge Forums




    Very nice ngdev team games Anthony! I'm hoping to grab one of their games soon, I believe they said they where gonna reprint one of their shoot em ups this year but I forgot which one..
