  Site Downtime...

My bad! I kind of forgot to renew the domain name for NGFL as well as the domain for Enchanted Elysia so over the past week both sites have a had a little downtime. I awoke from a post Halloween party hangover of epic proportions to find the site was down. It did take a couple of hours for it to come back on so I do apologise if you couldn't get on for a while.


I did this once before and forgot to renew the domain... so it's yet more proof that Kaz = stupid! :)



  SNK Gets New President

SNK Japan have released the following statement saying that they have appointed a new company president, who replaces he outgoing president Koichi Toyama:



"To Whom It May Concern; Date: Osaka 30th October 2008

I am pleased to inform you that as of today SNK PLAYMORE CORPORATION Board of Directors has appointed me, Soichiro Hosoya, as President.

I would like to emphasize that I will focus on continuing business development in order to surpass all expectations.

As you know SNK has strong Intellectual Properties that will continue to be used in the Pachinko-Slot machine business and Video Game business. In addition, SNK will ramp up all current projects for the new growing stage and I promise to do my best with vigorous dedication.

I have appointed the following Director Board Members.

Thank you very much for your support for SNK PLAYMORE CORPORATION."



Interesting. I wonder if "ramping up" means we will see the rumoured Metal Slug HD a little sooner, and also what other projects there are on that we don't yet know about? I'd love to see a continuation of certain series (Last Blade & MotW are the obvious ones of course), although heaven knows if that will ever happen. What I would also like to see however is a fresh new series. Judging from everything we have seen of KOF XII so far they do have people onboard that are capable and talented enough to give us the games we want, that's for sure.


Still... bring on KOF XII for the home consoles I say! May be a while yet but I still cannot wait!

  New Chatroom Installed

I have just installed the newest version of flash chat that is available. I have been thinking of trying other chat clients that are around and possibly even going to another IRC client as the flash chat has been a bit slow and unreliable at times, but I want to give it another try with the new version. It may or may not work better but it's definitely worth a try.


I'll try and idle around in the chat whenever I am online, so pop in and have a chat if you see myself or any other members in there. You can check by looking at the panel on the left! I would appreciate peoples feedback with regards to speed and reliability, especially if you have had problems with it before!



  Game of the Week - SNK Vs Capcom: MotM

Finally, it's time to have a Neo Geo Pocket game as our game of the week! I was tempted to do Last Blade, but seeing as we haven't covered either Last Blade for the Neo Geo yet, I thought it was better to do this other classic game first!




If ever there was a game that needed to be covered in the Game of the Week it was this one. Truly a classic and still plays great now; I still dust off my NGPC for a game or two every now and then. I just wish I knew someone around here that still had a NGPC so I could play someone on it!


Head over to the discussion thread to talk about it!

  Site Chat Meeting

Further to the post below, I would just like to mention that we will be holding a chat meeting this Sunday at 6PM onwards (UK time). I will be in there from that time (perhaps a little earlier) and all members are welcome to join in (if you aren't registered then what are you waiting for?). If you are not in the UK then check the difference in time zone, but 6PM onwards is going to be early afternoon/late morning for many US visitors and seeing as we'll hopefully be in their for a while most people should be able to jump in and chat at some point if they want to.


There's no particular topic of conversation this Sunday but it's likely to be the usual mix of Neo Geo and SNK talk with a little added madness from certain members (myself included!). It will just be good to get the chat room going seeing as it's not been used much lately, and I'm sure if anyone wants a few rounds in a game using GGPO or even Xbox Live (SS2 anyone???) we'll be able to do that. I'm up for a game or two anyway that's for sure! Hope to see you all there, hopefully there will be a reasonable turnout!


Remember: Sunday 26th of October at 6PM UK Time!



  Game of the Week - Zupapa

I'm going to try and not comment about how late this is, or how Twinkle Star Sprites turned into more of a game of the last 4 months rather than a week. I'll just say that a new one is here and normal service will now be resumed.. and I will stop being stupid! ;) A new one will be posted very Sunday once more... please leave a comment on this news post if you would like to suggest what we should use for the next one!




People suggested this game a while back. It's a good fun game although it is extremely cutesy and dated so it's perhaps not to everyones tastes. If you have played the game before, head to the GotW thread to post your thoughts on the game and discuss it with other members, and if you haven't played it checked the thread for a variety of media for the game and go give it a try!


I am thinking about doing a chat meet next week, seeing as the chatroom is not used as often as it was before. I'll post details here asap, but it will most likely be a week from today (Sunday 26th).

  Samurai Shodown II For XBLA, Released 10th September!

Yep, you read the headline right... SNK is finally releasing Samurai Shodown 2 onto the Xbox 360 via Xbox Live!!! So many of us have been patiently waiting (or not so patiently in my case) for the game to get a release date for what seems like the longest time, but it is finally coming!


UPDATE: Contrary to what is written below (which was taken from Microsofts official site and other sources), I checked XBLA this morning and the games price is 800 MS Points. The official sites page has been changed too. Hmmm, something is not quite right here. I have downloaded the demo, but I'm going to hold off on purchasing it for a short while... looks like 800 is the real price folks...




This is where it gets even better though... according to the official page on Xbox.com, the game is going to be just 400 MS Points! That is an absolute bargain, especially considering the other classic SNK released a while ago, Fatal Fury Special, was 800 Points, and I felt fine about paying that price. It's a really good decision by SNK, so I hope all of you Xbox 360 owning fans will be purchasing it to support them! :) Also, judging by the screens on that page, the game isn't censored. I really hope that is the case as the lack of blood in the 360 version of Metal Slug 3 was a major annoyance!


There are a couple of rumours going round that it isn't going to have online play via Xbox Live, but I checked out a list of the achievements in the game, and they seem to prove that is not correct as 5 of the said achievements list "online ranked matches". Here's a full list for those interested:


1 Round Perfect (5 points)
Complete a perfect round in single player arcade mode.

The Samurai (15 points)
Complete the single player arcade mode.

The Perfect Samurai (30 points)
Complete the single player arcade mode without losing a round.

Man in Black (10 points)
Kuroko appeared in game as enemy (CPU).

Point Hunter (10 points)
Achieve over 200,000 points in single player arcade mode.

Straight 5 (20 points)
Achieve 5 straight victories in online ranked matches.

Straight 10 (35 points)
Achieve 10 straight victories in online ranked matches.

Victory 10 (10 points)
Achieve 10 victories in online ranked matches.

Victory 50 (20 points)
Achieve 50 victories in online ranked matches.

Victory 100 (35 points)
Achieve 100 victories in online ranked matches.

Big Apple (5 points)
Ukyo Tachibana throws big apple.

Am I Cute (5 points)
With any character, enter the "Super Deformation Moves" command to become the doll-like version.


You can find some screenshots here. I'll be getting the game tomorrow, so if anyone wants a game be sure to shoot me a message via the forum thread for the game, which you can find right here! -->


Thanks to THX-1138 for the news!


Other Stuff

It's no secret that I haven't been posting much here as of late, either on the forums or in form of news etc. I just want to say that this doesn't mean anything is going to happen to the site; I'd never want to close it down while people are still interested, and I haven't lost interest myself either. I have however suffered from a bit of a lack of motivation to do stuff recently, but I'm still here and not going anywhere... you can't get rid of me that easily! :D

This Samurai Shodown 2 release and the news about KOF '98 UM for XBLA, not to mention the fact that we'll hopefully be seeing a LOT more of KOF XII in the very near future have given me some more motivation though! Like I say though, the site is certainly going nowhere!
