Neo Geo Battle Coliseum - PAL Version
Kazuya_UK
Well, it's out now.... not officially, but a copy is floating about the net. Any other UK/Euro people that have tried it? I'll be getting it really soon, so I'll post impressions asap. There better be a 60hz switch (sure there will be), and I'd be really impressed if they decided to fix up the loading times on the UK version, but I guess we'll see. Will be nice to have everything in English though. Wonder if the PAL version works on HD Loader?

Buy this game if you can, I want to see more UK releases personally so I know I will. Plus it's at the bargain price of 14.99 - can't grumble at that! Grin

'tis indeed a bargain and definately going on my xmas list (though I'll prob buy it first! Grin)....must....use...willpower....must......not...order!Wink

If Ignition's Metal Slug releases are anything to go by (don't know about their KOFs tho) then it's bound to have a 60hz mode. They may be a small publisher (who can't stick to a release date) but in doing snk stuff it shows that they know what hardcore gamers like. Hopefully they've sorted this loading times delay thing given the extra time they keep holding back releases by.

I've not played NGBC yet but let's say that there's not one part of the game's title I don't like. Grin

Oh, and here's a little something that you may find interesting. Another bargain but a long way off (already placed my order though)Grin

Woo hoo!

That is indeed a bargain, but so long for the release date:(

This part made me laugh however:

Where would Orochi's force finally land once the seal is finally open? Will Chizuru and his friends still be able to seal Orochi? And just what is Ash Crimsons' true plan?


Did play.com write that or is it copy/pasted from somewhere else? Bit of a mistake methinks! Grin

lol! So true. However, like all good retailers, they didn't write the copy themselves, instead taking it straight from Ignition's press release.

Whoops! Grin

lol Smile

PAL version doesn't work on the HD. Now, I may be dreaming, but it seemed to me that it loaded slightly faster than the Japanese version. It's been a while since I played that properly, but there definitely seems to be some improvement, unless I'm imagining it. I need to run them side by side to compare if I get the chance.

Either way, it's nice to have the game in English! Grin

What happened to PAL NGBC? Everywhere I've looked are either allegedly out of / awaiting stock, or never had it in the first place. Was it only a limited release?

Btw, saw that Neowave is out too now.

Amazon have it, same price as play but you'll have to pay postage unfortunately... strange that everywhere seems to have sold out though. It must have sold reasonably well, but I guess they probably didn't put too much stock out there just in case it didn't.

Is the 60hz option included ?
If so, i might get one too lol
 
Kazuya_UK
Yes it definitely has 60hz! Grin

It's well worth getting over the Japanese version due to the English translation, and as I mentioned before it does possibly seem to load a little faster than the Japanese one, but that could just be my imagination playing tricks on me! Wink

God, I wish they would release this in America. Sony of America seems to have a very strong anti-2D attitude. We rarely get releases of the best 2D fighters or shooters.:( Looks like I'll be importing this one as well...

well, my, you guys are getting a way better looking cover.

Not sure of where you could get it in the USA/Canda, I got mine from play.com:

http://play.com/G...oduct.html

Unfortunately they only ship to the UK/Europe, I will have a dig around to see if I can find a place to order from for you, but if you have massive difficulties, as a last resort, let me know and I can probably order it and get it sent over to you.

I knwo you have HD Loader, which unfortunately this won't work on, but do you have a way to play import games on your PS2?

Yeah i do, ive put a flip-top cover on my PS2 so i can use the swap magic disc without forcing the tray

But a small came to mind, the game is PAL, my TV wont take it....
If the game would have worked on HD Loader, i could have resised the screen size of the iso and play it
Edited by Daaren on 04. January 2007 21:06
 
Kazuya_UK
Yea, I was thinking about that to be honest, you'll need a converter or something to get it to play. It sucks that HD Loader doesn't like it really, but it sucks even more that no company in the US has picked it up for release (or maybe SCEA doesn't want it released). I'm sure plenty of people out there would want it.

Just thinking about it... I'm sure NGBC PAL has a 60hz option. Have you ever tried playing a PAL game and switching to 60hz mode? That might work ok, I have heard of people doing that. Best to try another game that has 60hz options first though, before you buy it.
