Beast Busters: Second Nightmare - Game of the Month
The Game of the Month goes into the second round! This time we cast a glance at a rather obscure title on SNK's short-lived Hyper Neo Geo 64 hardware. Beast Busters: Second Nightmare is SNK's second installment of the Light Gun trilogy, which took its beginnings in 1989 and even got its own spin-off RPG for the Neo Geo Pocket.
The Beast Busters series was indeed one of SNK's rather unremarkable achievements. Although they were absolutely solid games for their time, they totally remained overshadowed by the similar House of the Dead series. How does the second Beast Busters title hold up to Sega's rivaling counterparts? Discuss this and much more in our monthly discussion thread!
Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000 - Game of the Month
Let's celebrate the return of our now monthly presented GOTW (that makes it a GOTM actually) with a rather remarkable crossover title which was released on the Sega Naomi hardware and eventually found its way to the Dreamcast and PSX. At the time of its release, Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000 used to be the wet dream materialization of many SNK and Capcom fans who always wanted to see characters from both franchises beating the crap of each other.
Does this game justice to Capcom and SNK fanboys? Does it even beat the awesomeness that the prior released SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium was on the NGPC? Let's discuss this and more in our finally resurrected GOTW/GOTM thread! Don't forget that HSC requests are always more than welcome.

NG Dev Team have just announced their next Neo Geo release: a horizontal shoot 'em up called Razion which seems to be inspired by games like R-Type and Pulstar. Razion features six stages, novice and normal gameplay modes and the scoring system involves 'growing gold cubes' and using the beam.
The MVS version is due to be released in Autumn 2014 with an AES release to follow later. Pre-ordering for the MVS version has already opened.
Always exciting to hear about a new game being released for the Neo Geo!
