    My Hyper Neo series - Samurai Spirits 64 2 - 5/5












    Since it's the NG.com forums, I expect to get beat up and flamed for all the videos, but that's part of the charm here right? lol

    But anyway, I was foolish enough to complete a Hyper full set, and figured why not make a series on all seven games and the associated hardware.

    This is just the intro. Nine more videos coming up every Tuesday.

    So go watch. You can't make fun of me if you don't watch and find something to make fun of

    I love the Hyper 64. BURIKI and SamSho 2 get tons of love at my meet ups.

    Looking forward to this!

    I have ffwa dual'd in a cab in my daughter's room. Doesn't get that much play, but it's in a cab and hadn't been sold. That says a lot, lol

    Looking forward to this series. Correct information is quite scarce for this platform. The games are much better than people think.

    One of the videos I have planned is a comprehensive overview of the hardware itself. Chips, what does what, etc etc. The info online isn’t even clear as to what does what (ive heard a lot of “each game needs its own special motherboard, when in reality you can swap the I/O across any motherboard and “convert” the pcb to play whatever the hell you’d like)

    Plus the games are all fun. Driving games are good, fighting games range from good to great, and I f’ing love Beast Busters.

    First video did well stat wise. Hopefully more people are interested in the Hyper than anyone would assume. I can’t keep doing these weirdo platforms if they don’t get traction haha

    I love SamSho 2 64 (Iíve never played the first), and was pleasantly surprised to see SamSho 2019 (PS4, etc) give more than one nod to the Hyper game.

    I have SlipStream, and am currently negotiating for a Rad Rally.

    Rad Mobile,OutRunners, and Sega F1 Super Lap are on my radar.

    Iíd love to see your treatment of this this slice of gaming!

    Iím sad for what couldíve been. The most powerful 2-D hardware developed, without a single 2-D game on it.

    Carts bigger than many consoles.

    Oh, the possibilities!

    Right? Iíd have just pivoted the platform to 2D. It has a ton of capability in that direction

    So much this. It was always unfortunate that we never saw a fully 2d masterpiece on this hardware. Some of the 2d assets in the two samurai spirits games on the HNG64 give us a small glimpse at what could have been, but alas, it just never happened.

    It's a wonder why they even bothered with developing the HNG64 in the first place. They were late to the party with it, it underperformed and it had first party titles that sucked in comparison to their NG counterparts. Nevermind the competing titles from other developers of the time.

    Gee I wonder why they ditched it and went back to what was still bringing them success in the market.

    I think it was a PC-FX situation. Designed a platform, sat on it, released it too late

    Round Trip RV. Honestly after spending days making a PC wheel/pedal set to get this running, I donít think Iíd do it again. Fun game for sure but making it work at home is a pain in the ass. But all the same...play it in arcades if you ever see a cab!

    Thanks for this. Very nice to get a closer look at this game. I have to agree, I'm not sure what SNK was thinking here. I played it at the Mall of America when it was new, and Sega Rally 2, not far away from this machine, looked worlds better. A big part of the problem was the lack of anti-aliasing. I do remember enjoying the Neo Geo-ish music coming from the speakers behind my head though.

    Sounds like your setup doesn't have the audio wired for the sound effects?

    Added Buriki One. It still amazes me how good this game feels 21 years later. SNK was onto something with the control scheme. Sadly we never saw them use it again

    This is a great series! Certainly makes me interested in the platform. Hope I can get one eventually.
    Alright, back again with THE IMMORTAL JOHN HANCOCK

    I have just brought a copy of Buiki one and Fatal fury to go with my HNG 64

    Looking forward to trying it out once it comes.
    Such a bizarre control scheme I just know I am going to be trying to move with the stick!!

    Making this work at home is a PITA, but in the end its worth it. Fell in love with this game in 2005 while out in Vail, Colorado, and knew one day I'd own it. Took til 2019 but worth the wait
