Is it even worth having an Atomiswave anymore?

Quite honestly, is there a reason for me to think about investing in an Atomiswave setup now?

Great, who wants to bet this will be announced for the U.S., but never actually released? Damn shame too, ah well maybe I can hope for a good fighting game to come out that isnít a rehash of a previous installment or wait for Capcom to do Darkstalkers 4Ö

Is that Hiroaki's work or is it the guy that did the win pose illustrations?

Nah, that's Hiroaki. From what I've seen, I think the artwork for the winposes look horrid. =|

because ports suck!

I dunno, I picked up the port of Rumble Fish and its a little better than the Atomiswave one. [which I also had] Haven't played the Neowave port....cuz Neowave sucks.

The NeoWave port is good. The graphics are better than in the arcade. Not so pixelated.

i was in two minds about either getting an atomiswave for this game once the price goes down or waiting for a port, whatever turns out to the cheaper, and IF this game does get a european release and i say a big IF, after what other ex neo game games habve only been released in japan then a ps2 i shall get

i think it would be cool to get a world wide release as then when you mention the neo geo name to someone, they might of actually heard of it :)

my friends only heard of it because of metal slug 4 being ported

In the cover art, Ai seems to be readying herself for some doggy action. Wink wink, nudge nudge. ;)

Nice cover, though just having Ai and Yuki doesn't really showcase a game with a crazy cross-franchise roster.

Violent Ryo

Yeah, especially since they arent NeoGeo characters, but its still a nice cover and great art nonetheless.

The other promo art would have been a better choice tho.

As much as buying a Neo-Geo since the DC has been released = no reason at all.

You had a great time playing your arcade-perfect ports of the Samurai Shodowns and Real Bouts on Dreacast, eh? And that DC Ninja Master's was even better than the original... You jackass.

you might have to wait forever

unless there's some news I don't know about

Sorry but I gotta disagree there. I dont think ANY of the DC ports even came close to being correct. Always had command lag, bad loading, missing animations and such.

But honestly investing in the AW seems kinda pointless at this time b/c everything that I would want to play is getting ported.

OFF TO PRE-ORDER NGBC PS2!

The comment about the DC is nonsense, but it does seem fair to say there is little point in investing in an Atomiswave.

You really wanna bet something? I bet it will need more than 3 months to get a xbox live port after the PS2 Japanese release.

KoF2k1 on DC is perfect. PERFECT, except for a few graphical differences which I don't give a flying fart on, but gameplay is absolutely true to the original. I have both the homecart original and the DC port and have put hundreds and hundreds of hours into both, but I'm unable to spot any gamplay differences (I play both versions with my old-style, btw.).

IMO, if you play the game on two different consoles/systems with different controllers, there really is no point in trying to find differences between both versions, you have to compare them on the exact same setup (same TV, same controllers, etc.).

To stay OT, I will definitely pre-order NGBC, can't wait to play it... I'll buy whichever version comes out first (probably the PS2 one).
