Nothing really new, just the character names are in English, and so is the metal slug page, and the neo geo games section. No new characters announced

There's something strange here... Some of these games are supposed to be MVS-only, not to mention a hack and a proto... What's up?

Hmm... 8 Shit games and very few good ones.

Who cares?

They have the rights to sell those POS to the 3 people who still buy games from them.

I'm sure that will be propped up in front of the world to see, but mysteriously, the other 100+ SNK games that they WEREN'T allowed to sell art for will be passed over quietly.

Funny.

I just don't understand why you would buy rights to games like Puzzled, WS '96 and the other crap games. What do you stand to make off of it? It certainly won't make you money unless you're an idiot and they wave WOTF in front of you. (Which is pretty shitty anyways.)

This is interesting. I was expecting something more from Playmore on the NGF issue. Hmmm, it took Playmore about 5 moths to put that information up. I wonder what the whole big deal was about. They forgot to mention Zed Blade, Bang Bead, and some others I think. Also, Warlocks of the Fates is not the only prototype that should have been listed. I don't see a mention of Crossed Swords 2 or GhostLop anywhere. I think that there should be a revision to the list of games. That's all I have to say for now.

Man this is kinda disappointing. I was expecting so much more harm to the freaks. Honestly, I think they bought the rights to those few crappy games just as a cover up. Maybe to make SNK shut up about them fucking up our games with their stupid stickers and stamps. I still can't believe I bought a US Motw just to find a fucken stamp on the back of the insert. Still can't find a new one :mad:

No, it didn't. Try reading the .pdf document (http://www.snkplaymore.jp/information/img/playmore.pdf) of the Stipulated Permanent Injunction. The settlement conference may have been held on 6/18/03, but it wasn't signed off by Chris & Dion until 9/29/03, by SNK Playmore's attorney until 9/30/03, and by the Judge until 10/14/03. That's where the delay came from. SNK Playmore isn't going to post in June a .pdf of a document the Judge didn't sign until October.

I was referring to Diggerman as a hack, is not an official game, it is homebrew. Actually they used the code from another game and made the new game from it.
