  Ragnagard - Game of the Week

System Vision... Which video game developer was that again? Known for few SNES titles like Chester Cheetah or Deadly Moves, they approached SNK's flagship hardware in 1996 and made diligently use of their pre-rendering methods. With the help of Saurus they eventually released the fighting game under the name Ragnagard, or as Shin-Oh-Ken in Japan.



Ever played this one? Don't let the graphical presentation fool you and give System Vision's only contribution to the Neo Geo a fair try. On this occasion you could perhaps demand a High Score Challenge as well, what speaks against this?

  Battle Flip Shot / Bang Bead - Game of the Week

1998 was indeed a good year for our Neo Geo, great titles like The King of Fighters '98, Last Blade 2, Blazing Star or Metal Slug 2 hit SNK's console like a bombshell. Of course there were other, less attention-grabbing titles that came out in golden '98. Visco, mastermind behind Breakers or Neo Drift Out, almost secretly brought out a competitive game in the tradition of Pong, just during that golden era of the Neo Geo...



As you may realize I covered both Battle Flip Shot and its pseudo-sequel Bang Bead in this GOTW thread. Although there are some differences between both games, they are still obviously similar to each other.

  Guerrilla War - Game of the Week

Another pre-Neo Geo game by SNK? And with no less as Fidel Castro and Che Guevara as main protagonists in it? Released in a time when the Western world still was in Cold War with the guys behind the iron curtain, it seems quite ironical that Guerrilla War actually made it to the United States and furthermore was quite successful.



Have you already played SNK's arcade hit about the Cuban revolution? Do you think portraying real historical, controversial persons as video game protagonists is a good idea? Discuss it in our traditional GOTW thread and think about a High Score Challenge as well. It might be fun...

  Stakes Winner - Game of the Week

Horse racing games on the Neo Geo? Developed by Saurus, the mastermind behind the Shock Troopers series? Who would have thought that? After releasing other obscure titles on the Neo Geo like Quiz King of Fighters or The Irritating Maze, Saurus responded the call of Japanese horse racing enthusiasts and therefore brought out Stakes Winner...



So what's this game, disturbing us while on our Easter holidays? Find out in our traditional Game of the Week thread or tell us what you love/hate specifically about Stakes Winner. A High Score Challenge isn't out of question, although I believe that there is much interest.

MOAR SCANS! It must be Christmas or Easter or something.

NGFL is becoming THE place for magazine scans. We must be close to bursting at the seams by now but I'm sure we can squeeze a few more in there. All round top bloke RiKo has been a busy boy and you can read the fruits of his labour in the gallery.



Give a big thanks to RiKo for scanning them all.

  The King of Fighters 2001 - Game of the Week

The pessimists who thought that the KoF franchise died for good after the insolvency of SNK, were positively surprised in 2001: SNK's successing company Playmore (today known as SNK Playmore) didn't give up on their probably most popular franchise and released the eight installment for the trusted Neo Geo hardware.



Another week, another GOTW. Let's discuss Playmore's first attempt of continuing the KoF series and bringing the NESTS saga to an end. As the game was received quite controversially, I expect a deep discussion and some High Score entries as well.

  Fast Striker - Game of the Week

The year is 2010 A.D. The gaming industry is entirely occupied by large commercial corporations, releasing consistently garbage for next-gen consoles. Well, not entirely... One small developer team of innovative Germans still holds out against the invadors, and is still releasing 2D games for forgotten systems like the Neo Geo or Dreamcast...



Of course we're talking of NGDEV's Fast Striker, a vertical Shoot 'em Up in the style of Mars Matrix. Some of our members already got their hands on this very game, so let's share our thoughts and experiences about this Neo Geo indie gem!
