PostSubject: ACA Neo Geo Series   Sat 4 Mar 2017 - 12:31

The Japanese publisher Hamster Corporation has been releasing loads of old coin-op classics/oldies/fossils on other consoles as part of their Arcade Archives programme, and that's now including the Switch. There's five remastered Neo Geo games up on the eShop already at 6.29 a pop. It's not the Virtual Console, true, but it's a decent substitute all the same.

For some old school gaming, has anyone gone for Metal Slug 3, Shock Troopers, The King of the Fighters '98, Waku Waku 7 or World Heroes Perfect yet? I'm a fan of Shock Troopers, and I can see myself rooting about Waku Waku 7 soon enough. It seems inevitable that the likes of Samurai Shodown, Fatal Fury and - everything crossed! - Neo Turf Masters will follow in the next while as well. Dance

These seem to be the ones coming Cappa (Copied from the big game list) and the PS4 etc keeps getting new ones (but some seem to be exclusive to systems) that I think the ACA will just continue to grow beyond these:

Alpha Mission II TBC
Fatal Fury TBC
Metal Slug TBC
Metal Slug 3 March 3rd
NAM-1975 TBC
NEO TURF MASTERS TBC
Samurai Shodown TBC
Shock Troopers March 3rd
The King of Fighters 94 TBC
The King of Fighters 98 March 3rd
Waku Waku 7 March 3rd
World Heroes TBC
World Heroes Perfect March 3rd

Metal Slug might see a look if I'm struggling for something to play.

I actually thought this was Nintendo kicking their Virtual Console off at first and I was pretty confused as to why they'd pick the Neo Geo. Laughing

The game shop on my road has just hooked up a Metal Slug 2 machine, so I can see myself downloading that after getting the taste.

It was just a couple of days ago that someone on here said that Mario Golf on the GameCube was the best golf game ever. After reading that, I called the police (on 999, and then on 101 for good measure) because they made a very false and damaging statement, that should almost definitely result in a lengthy custodial sentence, or maybe death.



That's coming out tomorrow, and it's the best golf game ever.

See I've play Mario Golf Toadstool Tour where Turf Masters, I've only played on NGPC as even I've not owned a AES.

So I'm interested in where you've played it before Cappa and anyone else who has?

It's had a few re-releases over the last half-decade or so - I've played it on Wii Virtual Console, Windows and on Android.

We'll have to see how it stacks up against NES Open Tournament Golf. Wink

METAAALL SLUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGG



It's might be the best run-and-gun shoot 'em up ever, either this or Gunstar Heroes. Any of the Contra games are absolute fucking dogshite compared to either of those. The third Metal Slug came out on the eShop a few weeks ago, but it's a bit weird. This is the one to get, if you're at all interested. 6.29 on the eShop later this week - quality. Thumbs Up!

Hamster Corporation announced the next bunch of ACA Neo Geo games last week, but they're a disappointing bunch, with stuff like the first Art of Fighting, the first Fatal Fury and the first World Heroes. Remember when SEGA would do some amazing 3D Classics on the 3DS and thenm immediately follow them up with a load of bollocks that wasn't good in the first place? I think this is a bit like that.

Yep, this went right onto my watch list on the eShop to pick up at a later date. It's been ages since I've played Metal Slug but I remember having a goddamn blast.

Was it the third one that had you start off on a beach with loads of mental crabs looking to have a go?
