    I actually think this one and Gunlord are actually worth having... at a reasonable price.
    I had both of those and agree they are pretty good. As you said though at a reasonable price, yes. $100 ok, $500 you can punch it up your ass.

    Wait....they fit perfectly in the NEO GEO library then!

    I happen to love Fast Striker, it's one of my favorite of theirs' - I get the complaint about the background animation loops, but I played the hell out of it when I had it.

    A big part of the authentic Neo Geo experience is paying too much money for an ok game.

    The one system i would really like to see more homebrew on is the PC Engine/TG16. Especially the HuCARD format instead of the CD's everyone tends to do when they make TG16 games. HuCARDs are so rad. Sadly i doubt programming PC Engine games is nearly as financially viable as other platforms

    Well put, though the arguably bigger part was paying too much money for an authentic arcade experience at home and since non of those Neo Geo homebrew games officially saw an arcade from the inside, they'll never be able to hold this experience for those who'll play them.

    Last Resort is indeed excellent. That and Blazing Star are my favorites. Glad to have been able to snag MVS copies of both for cheap.

    That would be awesome. Unfortunately, when it comes to being financially viable, I think you're right. I don't mind more CD games. The soundtrack to Lords of Thunder kicks ass.

    Knight's chance is the only game that I regret not getting. The feel, the production values, it just feels 100% legit. The NGDev games just feel like they are 'almost' good enough to buy but eh. Not at those prices, at all.

    The never ending delays don't help neither.

    We must keep in mind that it's a very small team but still.. After years of dev times, you would expect the gameplay to be better than this.

    Even as a ballpark figure, this game falls within the realm of NGDEV pricing. It's a tough sell I guess.

    Knight's Chance really does feel like a game SNK or Alpha Denshi would have put out in the 90's for the Neo, the only thing that betrays it is the Neobitz logo and copyright date! Yes it is a video poker game, but you can feel the effort and passion put into it regardless.

    Chips on Steroids wants all the glory and fame, and also the NGEV money, without putting in the effort. Hell their pseudo company name proves that without even looking at what games they're releasing, who boldly claims they're experts in the platform with a title like that, with zero prior experience, aside from scammers and delusional fucks? With the money of the collectard-y NeoTris release they could easily hire someone to do art of Knights Chance caliber and at least have a pretense of a good game for their wobbly space shooter, but no, that would be too much effort for something people will gladly buy anyway.

    I really like Pink Bullets. The only bad thing about it is the bosses are all a bit static and similar to each other but otherwise it's a good game overall. Great soundtrack too

    NEO XYX is the best vertical shooter on the system. Everyone should buy it. Looks way better than any Amiga shooter. It's pushing sprite limits on the Neo Geo

    What's funny is that Knight Chance is basically a mini-games collection. I personally rate it and like it but I guarantee if NGDevteam had made it - they would have been slaughtered.

    Comparing the Neo Geo with a computer that only handles 8 sprites at a time + bobs is really wise...
