    Exa-arcadia, the new neo geo?

    Any opinon or impression about exa arcadia first games line up?

    Some shooters seem cool and even sunsoft is making a game for the system.

    This game look like Blazing Star on Neo-Geo

    But this hardware it's more Taito style, instead of SNK.

    Neo-Neo-Geo? Hardly, lol. That's just yet another arcade board (and probably some filthy x86-64 PC board at that).

    edit: to be quite honest I'm warming up to the idea after reading more about it. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Filthy x86-64 PC? Bug off. The Neo Geo is a sack of shit compared to a 15 year old refurbished Dell workstation.

    Exactly.

    I wouldn't consider this the next Neo-Geo, since the Neo-Geo was relatively affordable. The Atomiswave had the potential to be the next Neo-Geo, but just didn't see the support (though I doubt any arcade hardware will have the longevity of the MVS platform, it would certainly have to be less expensive).

    The price is because it's for operators not home use. Let's not forget that MVS kits were in the 7-1000 range for ops back in the day. We'll see what happens second hand.

    I was ready to write this off until I saw Daraku Tenshi/Fallen Angels on the game list. I assume this will be just the arcade release of the Daraku Tenshi update/“complete version” they are already working on since that release was stated to be planned for both consoles and arcades...

    Yeah, but still, imagine paying close to 5k to play this:

    Yea some of the titles aren't really catching me. But, from what I understand, Steam is not a big thing in Japan, so these titles are just filler. Even Aka to Blue started as a mobile game and I think that's their biggest game.

    I actually demo’ed these in 2018 at CalExtreme, and at the very least The Kung Fu VS Karate Champ was simply awful. I played with another guy and we were just dying laughing at how shit the game was. They basically had all the knock off martial artists of any fame in the game, and the gameplay was weak as fuck. I’m actually surprised to see these actually coming out. I do remember one of the bullet hell games being decent, but I’m no expert on those games so it could be amazing or terrible I don’t know. Hard hard pass for me.
    Shit I may still have one of their pamphlets from CalExtreme laying around.
    Whose mouth do I have to shit in to get some respect around here?

    It looks cool but pretty expensive. You could buy a serious computer or even a car for one of these kits. Sure, you could say that about many Neo-Geo AES games today but none of them originally launched with an MSRP in the thousands range.

    It's almost impossible to recreate that wow factor of the Neo-Geo though because back then home conversions paled to to the perfection of the AES releases. The Dreamcast was the last system to still have that wow factor as playing arcade games at home goes.

    That and you were 11 years old.

    Arcades are done as we knew them. Stop trying to make it happen again, it’s not going to happen. The roller coaster has moved on.

    Exactly. The system is even cart based.

    IIRC back in the days you didn't actually "buy" the cab/game, but you rented it and paid royalties on each quarter the machine got which, some people say, it's what caused the premature demise of many arcade businesses.

    Exa's business plan seems way more profitable than the ones back in the days.

    EDIT: profitable from an arcade operator point of view.

    The EXA platform operates off of a specially designed and secure PC platform. Features include:

    Comparable in power to the Playstation 4 Pro or Xbox One X game consoles.
    JAMMA compatible using the JVS I/O standard.
    Compatible with both 16:9 LCD and 4:3 CRT monitors.
    Can hold up to four game cartridges
    No internet is required to use the EXA board – once you buy the platform and the game kit, it is yours. There is no need to connect it to the internet to access your game content, nor worry about sharing revenues with a manufacturer or even a distributor like Primetime Amusements.

    There was an option to rent from "distributor operators", but back home, there were three arcades and they bought their machines so it was all profit. But mini Marts had to rent them.

    Interesting, never knew you could buy the actual cabs. Guess that for small places it was more profitable renting the cabs rather than buying them upfront.

    An extremely expensive product. The content offered does not justify that disbursement of money.
