  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!



  Site Hacks Etc.

Well I'm sure that many of you will have seen that we were hacked again over the past day or so. I won't go into what happened exactly but to put it simply someone decided it would be fun to totally nerf the site. I took steps last time to stop it happening again, but I missed something and it seems they took advantage and managed to do it again, but a little more serious this time.


You may notice some glitches (missing images etc) at the moment but I am currently in the process of re-uploading all the content which is taking a while as there is a lot of stuff! If you spot anything that isn't quite right please post a comment using the link below and I'll make sure it gets sorted out asap. We are also missing any posts that were made on the forum on the 28th of July (Monday), so if you posted that day I'm sorry but there wasn't much I could do to save those posts. Not too much of a big deal though I guess, the main thing is that the site is back!


Like I say, if you do spot any glitches (anything at all) please let us know so it can be fixed!



  Facebook & Myspace / YouTube

This one is for all of you social networking type people (myself included!). Shiny setup an official NeoGeoForLife.com Facebook group today, so if you are a member of said networking site then feel free to hop on over and join us on the group! If you have anyone on your friends list that might be interested, then invite them to the group as well as the site itself and introduce them to the wonder that is SNK and the Neo Geo!




I may as well mention that we also have a Myspace page and a Youtube page. They haven't been mentioned too often in the past so you may not have seen them yet. Any videos we upload are always put onto Youtube and will also be uploaded to the new Facebook group in the future! I've finally added links to them all on the navigation panel! :)

  •   Game of the Week - Twinkle Star Sprites

    Another week, another new games to discuss! This time it's yet another often overlooked classic... Twinkle Star Sprites!




    It's a very unique game and there's certainly nothing else like it on the Neo Geo! Head on over to our discussion thread for media including screenshots, videos and music!

      Cute KOF 3D Renders!

    I felt I should share these really awesome (and insanely cute) KOF renders made by Emo Fairy! Click the image for full size.




    Let us know what you think of them in this forum thread! I'm sure Emo Fairy would like to know what you think of them, and as she is currently making some more you could possibly even request some new ones that you would like to see! :)


    These are actually a follow up to ones she made last year. You can view those at the link below (her official site).

    The Neo Geo is 100% the best 16 bit system! Just felt the need to reaffirm my love for the system.
