  Site News: Chat Room


We once again have a chatroom on the site, and unlike the older chats we used in the past, this one should be permanent. It's an IRC based chatroom, but we have a script on the site to make it nice and easy for the majority of you to access. If you prefer to use your own program like mIRC or similar, you can use the following details to login:

Server: Any dalnet server, default one on our script is serenity.ix.us.dal.net

Channel: #neogeoforlife


I idle in there most evenings after work (5pm UK time), so if you are on the site around that time, pop into chat and I might be around. I will be organising a chat meet very soon, so please check back for more information on that. The chat meet will be used to discuss a few things, and in general to have some fun. It also gives me another opportunity to listen to what visitors to the site would like to see from NeoGeoForLife.com in the future.


We also have a trivia bot that is in the chatroom 99% of the time. When you enter, type '!trivia' to start the quiz, and compete against the rest of us for the highest score. The current hall of fame is:

Kazuya_UK has the best score of 95 ; candycab - 82; Emo_Fairy - 82; sukotsuto - 30; Phry - 19; Anna_bot - 12

Think you can beat us? Jump into the chatroom and get started! So far we just have a general knowledge question set, but I am working on some SNK questions too, and once they are ready we might run a little contest one evening to see who can get the highest score! :D

You must be a registered member to use the chatroom plugin, but you don't have to register if you access it through mIRC or your favourite chat client.

  Site News: RSS Feed
While I wait for PHP Fusion to get its own in-built RSS feeds, I have installed an add-on that does the job for now. If you would like to subscribe to the RSS feed for our news updates, please paste the following link into your news reader:


http://www.neogeoforlife.com/feeds/news.php


If you click the link in Firefox it will ask if you want to add it to the toolbar, but I don't think clicking like that will work in IE7 right now (go get Firefox if you don't already use it! ;)). I'm interested to see if the RSS feed works ok for other people out there, and also what reader you use to lok at it, so please give me some feedback on this matter!


I'm going to set the MSN Alerts up again some time soon, as I know a few people used that on the old site.


  Off Topic News: Street Fighter II Remake
I needed an excuse to make a post about something in the "Capcom" News category I added to the site. As this is an SNK site obviously we won't be covering all Capcom news or anything, but if there is something interesting that we manage to dig up then I will post about it... and this will be of interest to 2D fighter fans, so here goes:


There are unconformed rumours flying about that Capcom is going to be doing a remake of Street Fighter II for the Playstation 3, and that it will be distributed via the PS3 Network. If this is true it is quite interesting, but what kind of remake will it be? I'm not exactly excited yet, but we'll see what shape it takes if it does turn out to be true.


I'll update if I hear anything else on this one! Feel free to discuss this using the comments thread!


  New Review: Guerilla War


Phry, one of our moderators, has written another retro review for us! This one is of SNK's old (pre-Neo Geo) arcade game, Guerrilla War (and yes, they did spell Guerilla incorrectly! ;)). This is the third retro review he has written for us, as he previously did Ikari Warriors and P.O.W. I hope you all enjoy reading the review, and perhaps it's time to fire up MAME and give Guerrilla War a playtest (or play the arcade machine if you are lucky enough to have access to one!). It's nice to look at the stuff SNK did before the Neo Geo was released.


Many thanks to Phry for the review, and also a massive debt of gratitude is owed to him for being awesome with helping out on the site while we were building the new design. It would not have been completed as quickly if it wasn't for him! :)

  Competition - Win A Copy Of SNK VS Capcom Cardfighters For The Nintendo DS



To celebrate the launch of the new NeoGeoForLife.com site design, we are giving away a copy of SNK Vs Capcom Cardfighters for the Nintendo DS. Please visit the competition page for more info on how to enter (it's nice and simple!)

  Site Update - Jukebox Back Online!
The Jukebox is now officially back online! This little script opens up a Winamp style media player (using flash) that plays various music from SNK games. You can even open it up as a small popup window if you wish, and listen to music while you browse the site!




This script stopped working on the old site due to my host, but now we are hosted elsewhere I managed to get it up and running again. I still have a few music requests to add to it when I get time, but if there are any other tracks from Neo Geo games that you would like to see added, please let me know in the comments thread! (link at the bottom of this article!)

  Funnies: Samurai Shodown Beatles???
Just found this image while randomly surfing - thought it might give you all a giggle! It's the Samurai Shodown Beatles!!! Click to enlarge! :)



Gotta love it! Credit goes to the original artist for a novel idea, I'm not sure who made it though. It was found at this site.


So... any ideas on what songs the Samurai Beatles might sing? ;)
