greeting from an old member
Hey gang,

U may remember me from a few years back I used to use this site alot. I still pop in a few times to have a look at discussions, this is one of the loveliest communities on the net Smile

I was living in a single room for years that made gaming difficult esspecialy with playing the big old aes. I then moved in with my gran for a few months where I could only play the 3ds and neo geo pocket colour and gameboy. However I finaly have my own flat and have a nice set up of xbox 360, ps2 and my favourite the aes Smile Ive been playing my fighters so much lately after so many years of them gathering dust. so im very happy

I was wondering if any of you could help me out. I have a Japanese aes mint copy of matrimelee, it sometimes but very rarely resets when playing. but thats the only drawback to it. Ive noticed on ebay that someone is selling it for £750 roughly. Is this a fair price? what would be a fair price for a slightly faulty copy these days? if its in the £500 mark i might sell it as it would help me financialy.

however I have been playing it alot today and still love it alot chinnen for the win Smile

let me know what you guys think and what I should do. all help very appreciated.

I hope to contribute more to the forum again

thanks and peace be with u

Powerwave dude!

ironically, I've only just made a miraculous re-appearnce myself after a (pretty much) 2 year hiatus!

I received a copy of Matrimelee for the AES sometime ago and mine too has the same problem. I'll just be playing away and *boom* I get the exception screen (with all the text etc) and have to remove the cart and try again.

It's seemingly temperamental unfortunately. Might just be an issue with certain carts. I thought it was just mine tbh so (I'm afraid to say) I'm quite happy to hear that it's not just mine Pfft

The game isn't worth ANYWHERE NEAR £500... let alone £750??! Not sure where you got those prices from? It's worth around £270 - £300.

Just checked eBay's completed listings. Here you go: http://www.ebay.c...&rt=nc

I wasn't too far off, huh?

Where on earth did you get £750 from??!?!! Shock

Good to see you round and about buddy. Hope your ok (health etc) Smile
hey ninja nice to hear from u, are you collecting aes games now? I remember last time I checked here you were given the aes as a present.

well on ebay at the moment theres a guy trying to sell his matrimelee for 750 quid i thought it was to good to be true. im quite happy its not worth that much as I now feel i can keep mine Smile I only got mine for £60 which makes me feel very happy Smile

im ok ninja thanks hope ure dandy too

@DvdXploitr thanks man ive been playing my system on a hard floor lately and the resets seem to have gone. so maybe ure right, thanks for the help Smile

Ah, I remember you, Powerwave.

Weren't you the one who started that infamous " SNK porn " thread, where some members posed mostly naked with their favorite carts covering up their lewd bits?

Glad to have another old timer back in the ranks.

I hope your AES problem is fixed. Having something wrong with your Neo can indeed put a damper on one's happiness.

Hi Powerwave bud Thumbs Up pleased to hear you have your own place with an awesome games setup

£60 is amazing for Matrimelle, I thought mine was a bargain. I can't remember how much I paid for it now but it was definitely over £150

Good to hear you are sticking around. Now we just need to get Ste C, Kaz and Shiny and the other Cat back

Welcome back, it's been a long time. Good price for Matrimelee, I bought it brand new a long time ago for 200 Euro. The resetting isn't due to dirty contacts, it's a bug that's in Matrimelee itself. I think some carts are worse than others because I've read about carts resetting regularly and mine only did it twice in all the years I've had it. I even had to return a used cartridge to a shop because when I played it on my PAL AES, it was buggy as hell (not to mention the crappy generic music), I've traded it in for the brand new sealed one.

Hi guys just had a quick look at Powerwaves thread and saw my name mentioned so thought I better say hi to you all. Glad to see many of the old timers are still about from the NG4L glory days. Aye the SNK soft porn was a good laugh. I do still check on the site on a regular basis and apologise that I don't post much but I have ordered my copy of NeoXYZ for Dreamcast so will let you guys know what I think of it.
First... Ninja, then Powerwave and NOW... STE?! Nice, very happy to see "Legendary men return..."

STE's quite clearly Terry... Andy practices some form of Shiranui style Koppojutsu of some kind (practically, a ninja) and Powerwave is rocking a headband!

I think we can pretty distinguish a who's who of Legendary Men Return(ing)... Cool

Pretty cool too see all this going off in this thread. Have noticed that the forum isn't as lively thought as it was prior to my technologically forced retreat :(
Welcome back Powerwave! Nice to see you posting again. Smile
Quick someone stop Ste escaping!

Seriously welcome back! Bob

Hey old friends can I say thanks and respect for remebering me, I as well as other former regular posters do feel humbled by you guys saying nice things about us and being understanding about our absence. I am really sorry about not posting as much as I should but I do check the site on a regular basis.

Although I haven't been a regular poster the last 2 year's due to me falling back in love with modern gaming and getting a gaming pc + being happy with the quality of games the last few years I have not played my MVS for a while. Still I think its a healthy thing to take some time out..

For about 18 months this site as well as all the wonderful friends I made this was possibly (apart from my marriage) was one of the most important things in my life and really helped me through some bad shit I was going through as well. It was a great and golden time in my life which I will always cherish so I thank all of you for making it so special for me. The likes of Riko2D,Priest,merlin,ninja,SGX and you other guys are the lifeblood of the site and my life and gaming knowledge has been rewarding by your friendship. So my 2014 resolution is to not be a stranger + with new NG/Dreamcast games I will have some topics to discuss with my old buddy's.

I am a gamer for life and the NG holds a big place in my heart. Never in my life have I ever felt so accepted and it made me realise a world exists outside this cold northern city I live in, a world of guys just like me. The fact that you guys still mention me despite a long hermit existence in NG4L gives me a warm glow.

NEO XYZ is looking amazing so lets get behind it come Jan and discuss it.

Reading last posts, gladly I made the right choice to take part of this community instead of madhouse
A very warm welcome back STE C and to you Powerwave. It's been way too long between drinks STE C, hope to catch you in chat sometime soon.

I wonder where my arch nemesis boogiepop is these days?
Wow, this thread is pretty awesome already! Feels like a welcome back party or something! Grin
Supergrafx: You haven´t been that active on NGFL lately. It´s good to see you too aroundThumbs Up
