    Goddamn, this sure went places.

    My previous comment was coming from similar place to what Gohan said earlier. You're describing the system as a great mainstream type solution for "normal people", but even a less flawed NGX would have had a tough time breaking out of its niche.

    The average person is mostly better served by the ports that have existed since SNK walked away from the platform. They're going to have a much better experience out of something like Garou on PS4 @ $15. For those that become more interested in the library after a modest start, there are plenty of convenient official and unofficial emulators that can deliver a great experience at a small cost.

    Ultimately, the NGX is just a shame. Squandered potential. And because of this, it will continue to leave a fairly sour taste with most people frequenting this place and others like it.

    Good response, I agree it was mishandled by Tommo. I have all the releases on PSP, Vita, and other platforms but have been playing most of them on the NGX. It just feels the best to me and my nephews. YMMV.

    The NGX is garbage, plain and simple.

    I quit paying attention after all the bitching I read here as the whole original massive thread on the device, then hacking it devolved into pure hatred. Did anyone ever come up with a custom firmware or custom build of the stolen emulator to make things right on the system? I recall you can get access to such things, but none of the details as I was just lurking back then. It makes me wonder, if someone could throw a proper working emulator into the NGX, and have that nice converter card you can throw whatever ROMS you want on so you get the full (or full enough of a) library going, maybe it wouldn't be so bad. It's a big IF though because if the emulator still sucks, no amount of other fixes is going to make it suck less where it matters.

    I ended up viewing the device much like the current Genesis ATGames flashback handheld, it works, many won't realize it's a problem, but anyone familiar enough will consider it annoying to grating. Unlike Tommo which got their ass handed to them, at least this year ATGames is scrapping that firecore piece of shit and going with a new system setup that fixes the broken audio, graphics problems, and lack of saving among other issues if anyone here is a Genesis fan.

    Tanooki, do you have a link to additional info about this new improved atgames genesis release? Their genesis unit was region free and I would love to be able to finally play my yuu yuu hakusho cart without a game genie or japanese megadrive hardware...

    I really wish that SEGA had handled this one internally, like Nintendo did with the NES Classic... Sure, there are some plusses to the ATGames (e.g. cartridge slot, price) but it's a bit sad on the quality and passion department. I spotted this link in these boards yesterday and was just floored. While the NGX and others of its kind haven't quite done this concept justice, the promise of a well put together classic micro console is still damn enticing.

    EDIT: Found it --> http://atariage.com/forums/topic/259...cks/?p=3651557

    I had found a story on another website, someone had talked to an ATGames employee who let the cat out of the bag about the 2017 lineup so I asked him knowing he was an employee. I had written: I got word next years Flashback for Genesis (both style) will scrap the broken GOAC setup for an emulation box like Coleco/Int/Atari uses. All the things that piss people off with ratty audio, sketchy gfx fails (like Contra being unplayable as stage1 BG won't scroll) and other oddities are a thing of the past. I'll buy that, no questions asked on that one.


    And to save you having to click links here's the post:
    "For those of you who collect these things from AtGames, you'll have your hands full in 2017. We're talking at least 7 traditional hardware SKUs, though there will be some redundancy there. We're also considering some other hardware-based products that don't use the traditional plug and play format.

    And yes, Tanooki, your rumor source is mostly true in that most of the hardware products will be moving to new hardware platforms that will no longer have the legacy issues (although, as I stated elsewhere, new issues may be introduced, but certainly nothing related to AV), but it's not quite as straightforward as that. In any case, there will be significant feature boosts, both in terms of hardware and software performance, that I think will make everyone happy. I think the only potential disappointment for some fans is that we're not going to add a cartridge or SD card slot to the Flashback 8 series, although that will see a big boost in game count, among other extremely enticing features."

    Hehe you're funny. If I respond I'm a cock, if I don't respond I'm invalid. Typical neck beard stuff. Its illogical to debate with someone who insults with profanity, rages, and flip flops as to how they expect someone to respond. Again, have a great night.

    No, WHEN you respond you're a cock. When you can't defend the statements you yourself make because you're argument doesn't have a leg to stand on, then you're invalid.

    But, hey, it's cool, that elitist attitude you got there fits you.

    For the price they are now, I rather use the money to get a dank ass fightstick I can use on any computer and emulate. That is unless you don't have a decent computer for emulation, then rip.


    he spends hundreds on scarves, of course he's a fag and then ChuChu Flamingo preserved the aftermath in a plastic case making sure it wasn't exposed to unstable air
    You're just upset that you're too goddam stupid to understand the games and whiff infinites.

    He spent some 50K on a fake Porsche, naturally there's no room for a decent computer within his budgetary margins... that's "the result of the last two and a half years of his life".

    I haven't kept up with this thread - I just keep seeing it get new posts and can't help but think "WHY ARE PEOPLE STILL TALKING ABOUT THIS?!" But seriously...this is like having a thread that goes on for days about an android handheld.

    Your the one who made the bold Statement calling people who buy Neo Carts and original hardware on aes or mvs are Elitist. So let's all be like you and sell off all the stuff we own or like and replace it with knock off shit. This is not a knock on people who own a Neo-Geo X, I honestly could care less how people play Neo Games.

    Stick to making Steering Wheels bro.
