Just curious as I haven't seen any forums or topics regarding the arcade format.

I'm a big Neo Geo fan . . . bought the home system when it first released in 1991 for like $600.00, and picked up almost all the games on home carts and MVS formats. Used to have a 4-slot cabinet, but I sold it a while ago.

Some of my top favorite games for the system are the entire Metal Slug series, the Samurai Shodown series, Last Blade 1&2, Garou: MOTW, the King of Fighters series, and the Fatal Fury series. I also love some of the shmups on the system like Alpha Mission II, Pulstar, Blazing Star, Viewpoint, and Strikers 1945 Plus. Shock Troopers is also a classic top-down soldier-based shooter, which is fantastic. There were a lot of great games released on the Neo Geo, and fortunately some of them are on PSN at least, so people can check them out on PSPs or PS3s.

Just picked up a boxed system this summer with eight games, and I'm loving it. Was never able to get it back when, as the price was just way too high for a kid who had to buy his own games, but glad I was able to grab it later in life. I did get to enjoy the arcades back when, as there was always a distinctive mix on the 4-slot cabs.

Nice man. I only have two games though so far (World Heroes and The Super Spy). Super Spy has taken my time tremendously though I look forward to obtaining more games in near future : D

My MVS collection is here.

Absolutely love the MVS. I got a 1-slot off Craigslist a few months back, and, started picking up all the essentials. I only need 10-15 more games before I can say I have all the MVS games I really want.

Very nice collection Rig. I'm trying to obtain one of those MVS adapters for AES as I unfortunately don't have the space for a cabinet besides the fact it's more cheaper for MVS games then AES games. Hasn't been easy at all.Besides the fact I need my unit unibios'd as I have a Japanese version

Someday I want one of those big red 4 slot MVS machines that used to be in every 7-11, Pizza place, laundromat, and arcade in the US.

In the meantime I do have a pretty good collection of CD games and a few essential AES carts.

EDIT - I still kick myself for passing on Samurai Shodown V Special brand new for ~300 when it first came out. That shit got pricy in a hurry.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I bought a AES when I graduated high school in 95. Have 10 games for it including the best 2d fighting game of all time, Samurai Shodown 2.

Picked up a Neo CD this summer and have almost every game released for it on cd. They're difficult to find so I only have Samurai Shodown 3 and 4 in original form. Would love to get them all but even the "common" ones are hard to find for a decent price.

I also have Neo Geo Pocket Color and I believe 20+ games. SNKvsCapcom Cardfighters is one of my favorite games ever.

I would love to spend more time collecting Neo Geo stuff, but it is painfully expensive... :(

Just made a deal for Garou Mark of the Wolves and World Heroes Perfect. Down to about six more "must haves" that I need before I can say I'm good.

Then, I'll be after a candy cab or two.

Neo Geo fans also owe it to themselves to check out this trailer for Gun-Lord from NG: Dev.Team:


The Turrican-esque shooter is coming to MVS this year, and AES and Dreamcast next year. Pre-order bonuses will be made available as well (details on gun-lord.com)
8 Bit Horse has way too much information about 2D games

Wow - nice collection Rig. I like Neo Geo games but I'm not a huge huge fan. They do get a fair amount of play on my MAME cab though.

Definitely a fan, but the only Neo stuff I own is a NGPC.

I am aiming for a 4 slot cab sometime within my future, hopefully sometime next year.

Big fan of SNKs games here. I've had a Neo Geo since 1995. Don't have it hooked up now though. My collection has dwindled, because I've sold some games, but I have a few.

I play Classic compliations like Vol. 1 on PSP and Metal Slug anthology.

FYI, NGDEV is keeping both AES and MVS alive

http://www.ngdevdirect.com/

MVS - Fast Striker, Gunlord, LHPB
AES - Gunlord.

There's a plan to bring Fast Striker and LHPB to AES later next year. I understand the prices are steep, the alternative is Dreamcast version, they just got reprints of previous 2 titles.

Oh, my collection -

Recently I have added MVS carts not released on AES to complement my AES collection, glad it's still going

I am a huge Neo Geo fan. I got a Neo Geo AES, Neo Geo CD, Neo Geo Pocket Color, and a consolized Neo Geo MVS. I would love to get a MVS cabinet, but I currently don't have much space in my gameroom at the moment. :cry:

I should save up and get one of those arcadeworks ones. $515 + shipping for cheapass MVS games on modern TVs is a pretty doable deal. I mean, I've wanted an MVS convertor for my AES system for years but since it's an unmodded AES system, using it on an HDTV isn't a great option. Thanks for the links.

Yeah I was thinking about getting one of the MVS Converter II's to play on my AES. I decided to go with a CMVS though because I heard there is some scaling issues with some games with the converter like Last Blade.

Just for a quick update email from NGDEV, but their message can be viewed here

http://www.neo-geo.c....=1#post3275650

Pre-orders for Fast Strikers and Last Hope:Pink Bullet will open soon.

I'm only surprised by the low numbers of productions, AES should be at least 200, MVS 100. I guess for small companies like NGDEV, they need to recoup the cost quickly and can't afford to sit around stocks of games.
