    Would be terribly funny if it uses the Neo4All emulator wrapper around the Neo Geo CD disc image.

    I dig Breakers and have no problem with it being made available to Dreamcast owners, but I'll stick with the MVS cart.

    edit

    check out the start of their description:
    Breakers is a good, polished yet generic, mid-tier 90s beat-em up'

    "At least it's a good port though, right? Well...not particularly. It would be a stretch of the imagination to call this a port by any criteria. What you're getting here isn't really a port at all. It's a ROM of the Neo-Geo CD version slapped onto a disk running on an unofficial fan made Neo-Geo CD emulator for Dreamcast. Yes, if you're reading this, you're probably more than capable of burning this onto a disk yourself, leaving it feeling like little more than a repro. While certainly more than playable, due to the emulator running on Dreamcast, the frame rate can't keep up to the blistering 60fps of the original version. In fact, a far more accurate experience would be had playing the game on MAME or any number of other emulators on PC or more modern consoles. Even the original MVS cart regularly sells on eBay for only marginally higher...leaving me wondering, what on earth is the point?"

    Er, no. A fighting game that can't keep up with 60fps and it's already available on MVS, NeoSD and so many emus? No thanks.

    It's time we put a stop to all those people exploiting us "shelf queens" LoL for selling an emulated game.

    Even ignoring all the other problems people have already brought up, why go with Breakers instead of the sequel? I always thought Revenge was considered the better game from a competitive standpoint.

    Strange choice of game to emulate and seems very overpriced for an unoriginal homebrew/repro. I love the fact people try to keep old consoles alive but this is just taking the mickey. Still someone must be buying otherwise they would not bother I guess.
    This isn't life, it's just stuff. And it's become more important to you than living. Well, honey, that's just nuts.

    Breakers Revenge was never ported to the Neo Geo CD, that's why.

    Nobody who buys an emulated port with major slowdown is doing so to play it competitively.

    Pretty much the only difference ive seen is Saizo isn't in this one and you can select the boss character Bai-Hu (lol using boss characters). Character portraits seem different too along with backgrounds. Don't quote me on this but nothing changed for the characters in relation to their frame data, which is both hilarious and lazy.

    Breakers is a good, polished yet generic, mid-tier 90s beat-em up'
    Breakers revenge is a beat em up? News to me!

    I wonder how bad the emulation will be.


    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.

    I think the objective is to exploit the DC collectard scene. DC Engine Memories.

    Pretty much the trend with anything in regards to "retro" gaming these days. Hipsters ruining everything ...

    At this point SNK should just start making MVS carts again. I have no idea who this is suppose to be marketed towards. Collectors won't want it for being a shoddy port, & other people could just emulate it. Isn't this on a bunch of compilations already anyway?
