    New member from France

    Hi everyone, I'm 40 and I live in the South of France. At the beggining of the 90's, I remember many magazines talked about the black goddess, I was only able to buy a Megadrive. There was a huge gap between the two consoles
    I eventually bought an AES one year ago and I'm so proud and happy to own it. I prefer US version games and i have around a dozen of them.
    I came here at first to buy a NeoSaveMasta ! But this forum seems cool and really instructive, I'm happy to be a member.
    By the way, I wish you an happy new year

    Thank you for the New Year salutations and congratulation on your purchase!

    Your Mega Drive and Neo-Geo comparison is interesting, but in my opinion a gap is a two-way street and there's more than one between those consoles. The MD is inferior, sure, but on the other hand, the variety of games its library has, lets the Neo bite the dust instantly.

    An arcade machine won't have action-adventures (Landstalker, Story of Thor, Light Crusader etc.), no RPGs (Phantasy Star), no strategy (Herzog Zwei). It's tougher to pay for a license (think of all the Disney games you'd miss), you can't have as many ports of other arcade games, as you have on a commercial console. And does the Neo have a brawler like Streets of Rage including a masterful Yuzo Koshiro OST? You know the answer...

    So, if there's an audio-visual gap between the MD and the Neo, then there's undoubtful another gap between their libraries and don't forget that the former gap was not as much between both consoles, but between the carts. All those expensive custom work wasn't just for show, although Neo carts really look awesome ;).

    That said, welcome!!!

    I want to know more about this 'black goddess' you speak of.

    As a rite of passage here you must appease our Lord Rot and in this case I think you have a good chance to pass the 1st test if you can elaborate on that first part about the black goddess.

    Your point of view is right too. the crazy thing during that period of time was the "bring the arcade to your home " thing, when I started playing arcade machines I had a Sega Master System. I was about 10, it was so impressive for a children who owned an SMS ! When I heard about SNK Neo Geo AES development I turned mad ... and soon after I saw the price

    The black goddess expression speaks by itself : beauty, power and upsetting ( graphics and game size ).

    Hi Rot, we talked about Neo-Geo.com on our french Forum called Neo Geo System, planning on buying a NeoSaveMasta. I think that's why you received so many French new member requests.
    I wish you good luck for Baby Sitting

    Just tell them not to register behind a firewall that hides the IP....

    I'll delete any account with an IP I can't trace... that's FYI..

    PS. Have fun on the forums...
