Hello everyone!

First of all, I think it's very charming that every member is encouraged to write a post here - it's really nice:)

My first memory of Neo Geo is from the local snooker/pool clubs, and fish & chip shops in the 80s, here in England.
We used to have 4 slots everywhere. I remember being with my Dad picking up dinner from a local restaurant and being mesmerized by the sound and sights of the arcade.

There was a rumor that a local boy at our school had a Neo Geo AES. He was very rich and everyone spoke about it with envious voices. I didn't play an AES myself for about 20 years after that.

My next experience with Neo Geo was the Pocket Color. In London, it was quite well stocked at HMV. I bought a blue camouflage unit and a ton of games like Pac-man, King of Fighters R2, Sonic Pocket Adventure and my favourite Pocket game, the wonderful Match of the Millennium.

At some point, I misplaced my Pocket and was devastated but quickly replaced it with a silver unit. I then found the original camouflage one and gave it my girlfriend. She wasn't my girlfriend forever and sadly, I never saw that camouflage Pocket again!! Mistakes were made!

When I went to university, I managed to buy myself an arcade cabinet to keep in my room so that I could play Super Street Fighter 2.
At this point, the arcade bug bit me and I bought a brand new MVS 1-C, KOF 94 MVS, a brand new KOF 2002 MVS kit, Rage of the Dragons kit and a Hyper Neo 64 with Samurai Shodown 64 Warrior's Rage.
Later I sold all this stuff and it's something I look back on with fond memories and a lot of regret. I wish I had never sold this Rage of the Dragons kit especially. (And the Hyper 64, I thought it was a lot of fun.)

Fast forward, almost 20 years and I still have this silver NGPC and Match of the Millennium (as well as the rather nice official carry case NGPC!) but that's it from my Neo Geo collection.

I started playing Samurai Shodown 2019 on my Xbox Series X recently and my son loves it. He always asked me to play it and this kind of inspired me to start looking at what is happening in the Neo Geo scene at the moment.

Right now, I'm thinking of picking up one of the Samurai Spirits Zero Perfect repros Atomik/NCI (repro doesn't seem to fit really fit in this situation..) and an AES.
Seems a little crazy to start on AES now but I think if I don't get Atomik's SSZ Perfect now, it will never happen.
Also thinking about getting Garou MOTW from Atomik - the artwork is lovely.

Anyway, that's it from me.
I'm starting out again, I'm English, I work as a game developer and I enjoy playing fighting games on my old Sony BVM. <3

Thanks for being friendly guys!

Hello mate and welcome on board cheers

Just to say so you won’t be disappointed, Atomik has closed the sales for Garou and SamSho and will not be producing them anymore. The next release is a Metal Slug Repro I love you

Hello RagingAvatar,

Welcome on board. You were lucky in the UK to have access to so many video games systems. I remember that HMV had many console back then. It is there that I spotted the Jaguar for the first time.
Wish you good luck for your quest of AES and games.
