    I LOVE YOU!
    I LOVE YOU!
My favourite console EVER, has it's 20th Anniversary today :D. In celebration of the truly momentous event, SNK Playmore have opened up a Neo Geo Museum site.  
 
The museum site features a history of the Neo Geo platform, a title catalogue of all it's games, scans of a various adverts, as well as other cool stuff to make Geo fans go gaga. Like a cool selection of "Neo Geo 20th" emblazoned T-shirts!. I've never been happier placing an order on T- shirt before, I'm so tempted to buy the Sam Sho 2 one also.  Anyway, the whole site, including the very detailed history section, which is produced by Japanese Bible Arcadeia Magazine, is available in English, so do enjoy!.

Make sure you give yours some loving tonight! Major celebration shiz taking place here later tonight. 

I am fucking awesome, and I always will be

Oh my. I didn't realize it is that old. I was first introduced to the Neo-Geo by this guy.
 

  That memory card technology was WAY ahead of it's time. I just wish more arcade machines used headphone jacks as well.

If I was both old and insane enough to own a Neo Geo, I totally would, not only because those cartridges are mammoth but also because owning a system that is at least 70% fighting games appeals to me on some psychotic level.  Happy birthday Neo Geo!

I enjoy NEOGEO games a lot!
 
Of course I'm just 'borrowing' them, but it certainly has a lot of great arcade games. 
 
Last Blade, KOF, Mark of the Wolves, Metal Slug, Money Puzzle Exchanger, Samurai Showdown, Magical Drop, Waku Waku 7... the list goes on!
 
I shall play some Neogeo tonight!

I would have loved to own one. Sadly the console and cartridges were too damn expensive. Never understood why, can anyone explain, is it just because they're rare or what?
