    Thumbs up Hello from Portland OR.

    So I noticed I now have the privilege of creating new topics and decided that my first should be an introduction thread.

    Life long nerd and my love affair with the NeezyGeezy is detailed the "Why do you love Neo Geo" thread. Up until a few years ago I was in the military and as such lived a cramped and transient life. I kept gaming, but using the backpack friendly emulation+laptop combo.

    About 8 months ago I got in position to start collecting for the first time in my adult life and started out just picking some titles up off of ebay then migrated to some internet forums/making trading friends off of instagram.
    I stayed away from Neo Geo because I am but a mere peasant and sticker shock kept me away. I recently discovered cmvs and have been edging my way into that. My first pick up was Last Blade 2 and I couldn't have been more happy. I never thought growing up that I would own Neo Geo games the joy of actually owning LB2 was amazing and I was hooked. Even if it is the low rent scummy mvs version.

    Anyway. I am now here. Let the friendship and rainbows commence.

    I own a few flannels and a bicycle. But those are things I have owned for 20 years now. The real reason I moved to Portland is much worse than longing for a Xanadu Hipster Uptopia. I moved here for a girl. Shittiest of all maneuvers.

    I met this really hot dude that was born in England but raised in France. He had a sick accent & also had a pretty sweet car.
    He moved all the way to Portland for a girl he met that was vacationing in France at some time, they got settled down, and they broke up after a few months.

    There's no moral to this story. Enjoy all the micro-brews and strip clubs.

    The amazing thing about starting up a NEO GEO collection in 2017 is that because of the prices and rarity I still get the 12 year old joy when I get a new title. Its really a substantial system to collect for and holding a case and game in your hand feels like a trophy and accomplishment. There are very few retro systems that can provide that sensation of being back in the early 90's when you acquire one single game.

    Wow.
