I had wanted to help with this before but, I'm finally going to be able to make the time for it now.

Friday night @ hopfully 7pm CSt, there will be a meeting in chat where the current price guide controller, Simone *aka FTL* will be having a discussion on the guide & it's positive & negitive effects on here and many other places on the Net.

This session will be moderated so only those people in chat that I set as well as the chatroom Mods will be able to speak.

If you have a set of questions for FTL that you would desire to have him answer, then please PM me your questions for him so I can prepare them for the meeting.

I hope to see a good turnout & if possible I would like all egos checked in at the door seeing as I would prefer an open level of discussion in chat to make it more enjoyable for all of us.

Thank you for your time..

Superb. It's about time this was done. :)

Sadly my iMac doesn't like chat, so I'll send you a PM for you to speak on my behalf if that's OK with you. :)

Why would the chat not be open to anyone? Surely there's not all that many of us that would show up. It sounds as though only that "BigTymers/OldTymers/guys that have been collecting for 10 years will be voiced, I hope that's not true.

This should be pretty entertaining, I mean informative. :rolleyes: I do feel it will be a re-run of his posts here, just in real time.

Real time, unchecked chat would result in enough whining to beat the band. Sending in good well thought out questions will generate the same type of answers. Someone repeatedly screaming and demanding an answer to the question, "WHY ARE YOU JACKING PRICES?!? JUST TO SELL YOUR INVENTORY!!!," over and over again does no one any good at all.

If you hate the guide, then ask questions to that effect. If you want changes, send in that.

In a "room" where the speaker cannot choose from the raised hands he sees in front of him but must rather attempt to answer a barrage of questions simultaneously due to an unchecked user's ability to type, a moderated chat is the only way to do it.

I won't be able to type either. Stop whining and ask the questions for which you would like answers.

Ahem...that's why the chat is going to be moderated. Thus only those people who are voiced can actually speak.

Kids these days...they don't read.

The last big chat room meeting that I went to was when Nikke was answering questions about his decision to deal solely with Ray Young (the "assholes" that bought Nikke out, as Bonuskun put it earlier this week).

That situation was fucked up because it turned into an excuse to bash NeoGeo2k2 and lord Akidadus. NeoGeo2k2 made a mistake by not sendiing the money by a more secure means, but in the end it looked like an attempt to edge those two people out of the selling/service scene by a certain "assholes."

I don't think this chat meeting would be as "interesting." At least I hope not, because it wasn't very cool. I honestly don't see it as a very constructive action though, because regardless of what points are made, the guide will stay.

Hahaha... Neo.com moderated chats = Come one, come all so people can pretend they're important in the "scene". That last chat was so lame it wasn't even funny... Nothing beat eliminating the middle man and getting kicked for having name-change-conversations though...

/nick this_chat_sucks_balls

/nick you_are_not_important

Well just a quick update on this. I've been thinking a few things out & for one I won't have anyone doing subliminal nick changes.

meaning if you're being silly with stuff like /nick Turf_is_gay or /nick Rev_must_die then I'll have to enforce a kick once on a warning then a ban for the 2nd time.

RyoGeo,
In regards to your own position. You're a mod at NG.com so your status would also be the same in chat for the same reason.

I hope to see everyone here. I already have a few questions from some people for FTL which I'm composing now. Please remember that this is a discussion meant to hopfully give Simone & others the right to properly expressing their viewpoint.

I don't want any CAP LOCK threats of people price jacking ect ect because it's not going to accomplish shit if that happens.

I hope to see everyone there. :)

Well it's now 7:30 pm and no sign of FTL is to be seen. I'm guessing that we either got our times mixed up or he got busy with some other things.

Either way I'd like to see about rescheduling this for Saturday night instead of tonight. We had a pretty good turn out tonight & I'm happy about that so if you guys still want to come in for some solid discussion that's going on now, then you're welcome to drop in.

We have an old school guest speaker named SNK here talking about Neo*Geo related stuff and as always he must be worshipped so bow when you enter the room. See you there. :D

Wow, if GUI is there it might actually be worth going to... He's one of the few people who actually are important in the scene, so if he's talking we know it won't be someobody pretending they're important..

If GUI is there, I'm so there.. Assuming the chat will become unmoderated at some point. Because I'm *obviously* not important enough to speak in a moderated chat...

Name change conversations rule.

It seems Simone won't be able to be attending tonight due to personal reasons. I just found about this now so this meeting will be postponed until 12:00Noon CST seeing as Simone will be able to fully attend.

I Apologize to anyone in advance for this apparent waste of time.

I love ya to death man but this was originally Simone's meeting and it should stay like that. Not trying to disrespect ya buddy but Simone should be the only person speaking for himself.

It would look bad on Simone if he couldn't speak for himself which is the point I'm trying to drive home. :p

It was indeed VERY late here in Italy and I was really tired after waking up early in the morning.

I know Fran share my point of view and his work is great help to keep the price guide updated.

I was also sadly informed that a LOT of spamming was up in the chat at the time scheduled for the event and none trying to stop it.

Seems that it was not a good idea.

Thanks anyway to all who emailed suggestions and appreciations for our work on the price guide.

INFACT,many people are behind the price guide,Shawn,me,Fran,Shito,Buster and ALL who emailed suggestions supported with facts.
Price guide is made by a big part of neo geo community .

Tonk :

i bought my neo in 1991

a decade ago,more or less

nothing to do with investiments,really

or wait,
just because i have more than 10 home carts,
i obviously immediately become

"a dirty collector pitch in it for the money" ?


i was buying neo games in 1996,
when 99 % of the people here were too busy with the psx to even care

people were calling me crazy back then

well,
guess i'm in it for the money

for the "INVESTIMENTS"

yeah...

I think most ppl brought the neo geo home system and carts back all those years ago so they could play the games not to be a collector as Fran said

maybe things have changed now but i know for sure when i got my aes i played the games to death to get my moneys worth


lets hope its third time lucky for chat today

I couldn't afford to keep my AES System?

I still have it.

Anyway, let me elaborate.

There are a lot of people in it for the money.

Bryce, I can't say you are because you do sound like a fan who plays his games. Fran, you are an avid collector who has never bragged about your collection.

I'm sorry you guys took so much offense to my statement.

Obviously you guys need another hobby besides videogames.

The reason I sold my games is the fact that they were worth so much to other people, not me.

I'm in it for the gameplay, which is why I own "ports" of my favorite games.

And I'm not that much into videogames as you guys are.

I live my life outdoors.

I have every right to participate here even though I own 1 authentic AES title.

And I'm entitled to my own opinion.

You don't like it? Too bad.

Honestly I have no problems with any of the guilty party, but TonK is right, maybe you do need more hobbies outside of videogames.

And, seriously, who cares who has more money... Some people have less money and work 10 times harder than others to "keep up" with the growing prices for this hobby... :rolleyes:

anak

what you just said is right


the thing is


its something between me and caris


it all started because i said
neo geo motw is better than the dc port


he took offense


started calling me a dig and all that,
aes fanboy blah blah blah


well,its a board DEDICATED to the neo geo after all,eh?

i would NEVER join a dreamcast board to call DC owners fanboys or dickheads


but hey,thats the norm if you're a troll,i guess


so anak


what i said was in response to caris previous post


i wasnt being serious

in the sense that i dont believe in what i wrote


hes just a jealous kid

so if you start attacking me,
saying things like


"you like the neo geo,you're an avid collector and you're a cunt"

well,fair enough


then its fair enough for me to reply with

"fuck off,you cant afford aes carts,diiig"


its all part of a silly,childish game

frankly,ive had enough of it


one last thing:


tonk,this is neo geo com

i love the neo geo

avid collector? pheraps

you have all the rights to post here

i have all the rights to post here

it just feels kinda strange

because i dont have to justify what i do

i dont have to justify a thing


if i want to buy ten copies of maruko,
fuckin hell,more power to me

its called freedom,or something


SPECIALLY because its a board dedicated to the NEO GEO


and,again,its just weird


i love the neo geo,
i buy neo geo games

and there are people attacking me for that?

on NEO GEO COM ???


the world is always full of surprises

FeelGood
06-16-2002, 08:09 PM
Fran, I love your way of thinking.

As for Tonk, he's only here for the drama. Every other week he makes some snide comment about how he's moved on from the neo, and no longer cares about it. So why stay? He just wants to see who's fighting who, and then give some pithy line about how spending money on Metal Slug aes is for retards. 100% funster attitude.

As for Drift King. I think he's really bored. If he had as much money as many of the other people on these boards he'd be whistling a different tune, because frankly, only a few neo games are better off the neo geo hardware, and none of them are fighters (twinkle star sprites and the magical drops, and maybe metal slug 1).

SO true

Ok where to begin.

It seems that having this meeting is turning into more of a task than I had hoped it would be.

Simone,
Weather or not you want people speaking on your behalf is fine but, you are the PrIce Guide analyst which means you have a responsibility to speak for yourself. This isn't me trying to be a hardass or a jerk to you but, if you're doing something for the 'Price Guide' then you should speak up about it.

Having anyone speak for you would almost be akin to saying that you don't care to listen or even worse are afraid to speak for youself.

As far as this supposed Chaos going on in chat I think the 'person' who told you that seriously blew it out of context. The more & more I anazlyze this it seems that this person only has a problem with this other person and neither of them are man enough to suck up their dislike of each other and bury the issue.

So this said person tries to rationalize that chat is ruined because of the person giving him a headache.

It should be noted that this person when in chat is usually almost never there but elsewhere on the server talking normally, without being rude or nasty & generally understands the rules and moral ethics of being able to have the privilage of chatting on IRC.

To the other person who I know will read this, I checked things over & over again and to be honest I think this is probably a mistake you made on your own when you came in and couldn't access any of your commands. There was no problem whatsoever so to be honest I had no idea what you did wrong.

I think you & this other person need to grow up & move on because this arguement hate between you two will never be resolved as long as you're both too proud to admit that you both made mistakes.

As far as the meeting goes otherwise, It can be done & it will be done right. Moderation means as such that the channel can be silenced and made to where only a select few people can talk. This is a switch in IRC that can be turned on & off at my whim.

If you're going to join chat then you shuld be prepared to handle a live enviroment. This isn't the forums like I've said many, many times. This is a place where if you're going to get into conversations then be prepared to keep up.

Moderation is just for those times when chat sessions are going on or people desire to speak thier mind.

I really wish you would come back but I won't force you to do something you don't want to do. Just remember what I told you on ICQ about why I didn't do what I did & maybe you'll understand that sometimes I have to make a sacrifice for the greater good of the Neo*Geo fans, collectors & gamers that visit chat.

I've never been accused of being an abusive mod but, I don't intend to start now. Chat is meant to be an enjoyable experince for everyone but you shouldn't expect your hand to be held when you come in either.

Simone,
I want to try & sincerely make this work. To do that I want nobody to speak for you expect yourself. If you're in agreement to this then i will help you in any way possible to make this as fun & informative for you as possible.

Thank You...

This is quite sad indeed.

This should be a place for Neo Geo worshippers to worship freely. Because of the cost of this stuff, there's so much strange bickering and jealousy going on. I think it's really simple:

If you've got wads of cash, and are interested in the whole collectible angle, you go AES and get the pretty artwork and inserts/manuals.

If you aren't obscenely wealthy, you go MVS and still get THE EXACT SAME thing, only without the purty packages.

If you have lots of free time and just don't give a shit, or want Pulstar and Turf Masters cheap, go CD.

I've only been hanging around this board for a little over a year, but this whole jealousy/pissing match over who has what and how much still blows my mind. I bet if half of you spent less time on here and MORE time playing these games you supposedly love so much you'd all be far happier people.

This isn't to say I haven't had my scrapes or talked my share of shit. I've been involved in a lot of flame over Slug 4/KOF2K1 and my poor opinion of both those games. But at least it's debating the merits of a game.

Fran, I know from your posts that you are simply a sincere devotee of the AES and have bought these games solely on their own merits. Even if the bottom dropped out of the market tomorrow, you'd still keep your shit.

To everyone else, the health of the scene depends on all active members to get back to the business of just enjoying these games, instead of bashing swords about prices. If everyone quit paying so fucking much, the prices would drop, and it truly is that simple. Let the collector wankers enjoy their lucite shrines and mint baggies and circle jerk themselves to death. The rest of us, let's just fuckin' beat each other down in KOF '98.

As for Tonk, he's only here for the drama. Every other week he makes some snide comment about how he's moved on from the neo, and no longer cares about it. So why stay? He just wants to see who's fighting who, and then give some pithy line about how spending money on Metal Slug aes is for retards. 100% funster attitude.

Fran, you better cut this shit out , I swear to god. This is freaking scaring me, this stupid shit.....


I fucking agree with you.

And I can put some stock in what DKEX says.

With the DC, you can get really good ports of Neo games, so good that the differences are minimal at best and do nothing to affect gameplay or 99% of graphical enjoyment.

I played the PSX KOF99 for a while yesterday, and I can tell there's animation loss. On MOTW for DC I don't notice any, but fuck it , if there is who cares, it's not that noticeable.

MOTW DC = $10
MOTW AES = $500
MOTW MVS = $100
MOTW Mame ROM = *Free

I think the DC is a great way to play a great game, and no one should rag on anyone if they say that's how they want to play the game.
Hell I don't think people should bitch about the ROM being out, but that's another argument.

HOWEVER, you have an AES, you have money, you love SNK. If you want to own MOTW on AES, hell if you want to own multiple copies, then I support you. I think you're insane, but we all are in some respect. You have the right to do whatever you want to do.

And you know what, you're on Neo-Geo.com you should be able to talk about Neo geo games on any format. I don't care if it's about KOF99 on PSX or on AES or MVS.

As for this price guide, it's obvious. It slows the decent of AES cart prices. They are falling in most cases, but not by much, and they are doing so slowly.

Now I'm not accusing you of anything FTL, cause I honestly don't think you or Shawn or anyone else is trying to fix the prices of the AES market. But earlier you said that someone could find Samurai Showdown 4 AES Jap, for $15. Tell me where I can find that, and I'd really appreciate that. Cause even the price guide says that it's over $200.

To be honest, I don't see the AES as a viable gaming platform. There are plenty of AES collectors who are gamers, but I don't think that the majority of Neo gamers are on it. Just because it's just too expensive. Now like I said there are probably TON's of gamers who are on AES. Hell I'd be deathly afraid to play Fran at KOF98, cause he's probably played it about 342983647 more times than I have. But I still hold to the fact that the majority of people who play and enjoy Neo games don't have an AES.

They have a MVS, CD, ports, or ROM's. I can understand people with job's and money buying AES stuff. But there are kids out there trying to get some of this stuff, working the entire summer to buy a AES and 2 games. I mean that's just sad in my eyes. I mean at that point you just want to slap them and say "You just want to play the games, buy a DC and some ports and GO TO TOWN!"

I don't know, maybe cause now I"m scrimping money to save for a house, and I hate to see people spend so much money on what I consider to be so "little", but everyone has a right to do with there money as they see fit.

But I swear if I see people think they're elite cause they have an AES and someone has a CD, then I will truely be there kicking some ass.

So I say fuck what you're playing it on, play the Neo and enjoy the damn games people! That's all that matters!

Peace

i m a poor pitch with common games.
diiiiiig your thread.
<img src="graemlins/veryangry.gif" border="0" alt="[Very Angry]" /> <img src="graemlins/veryangry.gif" border="0" alt="[Very Angry]" />

who cares anyways.
the price guide is for fools that dont know in the
first place.
i know where i get my games and i get it from
people that often times sells them for well under
the price guide.
you ll find most of these guys
that fuck it for others though is people in it
for the short term and want all the uncommon
games right now and are willing to pay more then
the norm. thats what makes the price guide dumb.
its idiotic in any ideal that you conform a price
guide to nuerotic ebay bidders.
i dont care either way though.
i dont go by the price guide like i said.
keep on argueing and bickering though.
sometimes i think some people can only find happyness
in fighting and argueing. it keeps their blood pressure up i guess.
btw. DC motws is okay.
but its not by anyways or means perfect.
its a dam good port is all.
and i posted all i wanted to say in the motw thread.
