...all this talk about NeoGeo AES/MVS...


AES/MVS < NeoGeo Pocket < Atomiswave


...nuff said.


No offense, but the Neo Geo Pocket was junk; I still have mine and some games for it, but it was much worse than the GBA. Non-backlit screen plus almost no games released for it = fail.

Also its funny you think Atomiswave is better than the MVS/AES, a console that had over 100 games, many all-time classics. I think you got your arrows mixed up!

Finally got around to checking out Ninja Masters this morning. It seems pretty cool for a fighting game but I still like Samurai Shodown 2 and Fatal Fury better; although I assumed (and kind of wished) it was a glorious Neo Geo beat 'em up by the name and the cover art for the game. I am totally oblivious to this game as I never heard of it before until the Neogeo X was released. Was this a game that was released in the arcades on the Neo Geo? Or was it made specifically for the Neo Geo X? Was it released on the AES console too? Also, what are other's thoughts on the game? Do you like it? Hate it? Or in-between?


Ninja Master's was a rare game that didn't get wide distribution, but it did get released for both the AES (home) and MVS (arcade) Neo Geo systems. It is rare on the AES and commands very high prices. It isn't as polished as Samurai Shodown, but in my opinion its an excellent little gem of a fighting game that was sadly overlooked.

It's one of the rarer titles for the system. There's AES, MVS (arcade), & CD versions of the game. A US AES version recently sold for over $1500 on eBay.

I've supported it by coming on this forum to tell people out there the thing is worth getting if your into this kind of thing.. something I would not have been able to do had I not purchased the system

In addition I also plan on buying new game cards on amazon, does that allow me to say I support Neo Geo X :roll: ? lol


Buying used + "will be" buying new game cards does not really equal "supporting the system", but whatever floats your boat. I think you're annoyed because you got called on bragging a bit self-righteously about supporting a system that you had in fact bought second hand for half of retail.

Contrast with this guy below...

I'm a huge NeoGeo fan and I supported this with a release purchase.

I agree. I owned the NGP hoping to recapture the Neo Geo in all of its glory but at a cheaper price of the AES console, but it just wasn't the same. When putting the Neo Geo X side-by-side with the NGP, the Neo Geo X blows away the NGP by a HUGE margin.

Thank you so much for the information. That's crazy how rare it is, as another guy put it, it sells for $1500 dollars. Geez!! Glad I finally got to play it and see what it is all about without it putting me into bankruptcy. :lol:

I have it for Neo Cd and its a capable fighter. Played it a little on the NGX. Not broken, nothing special. Nothing compares to Samurai Shodown 2 though. I don't think there was ever a finer 2d fighter released. Sure, Street Fighter 2, MOTW, and even Last Blade 2 are incredible, but SS2 just did everything right. (with the minor exception of some Engrish....:))

Was close to buying this but ended up picking up an MVS board and samurai showdown 2 for less than this thing.

Nope. Amazon now has it listed for May 30th. Gamestop is still saying August and they haven't even opened up pre-orders yet. The handheld only version of the system also got pushed to August per Gamestop.

The Neo Geo Pocket Color was released in 1999, only one year after the GameBoy Color. At that time, backlit screens hadn't become a standard yet (although it would've been nice). For 1999, the NGPC was a very capable little system. It boasted an impressive lineup of fighting games, generally charming art styles, and two completely excellent SNK vs. Capcom titles - one of which is a card game. Point: let's not bash a system out of context.

Well in Chimpmeister's defense, he was just defending the Neo Geo Gold X console due to the guy he quoted above who was bashing it saying that the Neo Geo Pocket was a better system out of the two. So technically his reply was not out of context.

Nice post. The NGPC was killed by its lack of 3rd party support. Aside from the Sonic game, I cant think of anything that wasnt made by SNK or ADK. It was never embraced by retail stores either, sadly.

EDIT: Looking at my collection, I see Activision had a Shanghai game, a company called YUMEKOBO released Puzzle Link and Biomotor Unitron and a company called Sacnoth released Dive Alert Matt's Version and Becky's Version (Though that game was terrible.)

Card Fighters Clash remains one of my top 5 favorite games of all time. Samurai Shodown 2, Match of the Millennium, King of Fighters R2, and Fatal Fury First Contact are all very solid fighting games. I never managed to get Last Blade (DAMNIT!) And I only recently found Gals Fighter, which I played and finished only once. (the end boss is spectacular though!:D )

The System had a solid Golf, Soccer, and a baseball game. Actually the soccer game is excellent if you're into soccer... And you can't forget about two amazing versions of Metal Slug.

I find it difficult to knock the NGP. It was clearly niche, and unfortunately didn't have enough support, or longevity, but it remains one of my most appreciated handhelds ever. Now, to get Faseli!

I would kindly buy any number of these things that you could produce for $29.99, as I could easily sell them all for twice the price.

You're obviously not the target audience for the Neo Geo X if you are comparing the purchase price to the 3DS. This is meant for old school gamers or people who enjoy the golden age of gaming and want to relive it. Hell, you can buy almost anything else for 130 dollars. Why just stop at the 3DS? You can buy an Xbox360, PSP, PS3, etc for that price too. :roll:

Believe it or not you can still be the target audience being an old school gamer and and thinking theres more value in something more current.Shocking isn't it ;)?I was comparing it to the price of a 3DS with the handheld competent and similar price ranges and it having stronger hardware.I'm just saying,when talking about the market, there was a reason people didn't seem to snag this up at 200$,which was why there was a big discount to 130$ and I'm not so sure if the market is there at 130$ either and although a good deal,just seems like there might be one more price drop down the road.Hope that clears it up so you can understand :lol:.
