    Talking Neo Geo/Classic Gaming in Portugal?

    I am going to be heading to Portugal for a few days at the beginning of May, and while I'm there I would like to find a few gaming shops or arcades that have some Neo Geo games to play or buy... also looking for other things for PC-Engine as well. Can anyone make some suggestions?

    If the "fun" has disappeared from the Neo Geo and its games, it CERTAINLY isn't SNK or Playmore's fault. It's the over-crazed fanbase that is trying so desperately to add some value to their shallow lives by adding unnecessary value to an item that is only intended to bring entertainment, not stature. Wake up and become part of the reconstruction... not the future demise.

    Don´t mind my friend Codeman. Everytime he opens his mouth, the only thing that comes out is cheat.

    Yo! Nice choice Vinylboy.

    But if I was you, I'd rather go in the summer. way better for you to enjoy.

    The place Atro lives is quite cool in the summer, but rather dead the rest of the year. Jully would be more the best for you. I shall go to Portugal visit Atro too after I comeback from Switzerland.

    Are you staying in Lisbon ? Are you in vacations or on a job trip ? smirk

    BTW Vinylboy where are you going to stay? If it's near Lisbon then maybe we can arrange a small neo-gathering, what do you think?

    --------------------------------------------------

    Tsubasa, this thread was about a fellow neo-gamer coming to Portugal.

    If you have anything personal to say to me then PM'me and stop spamming this thread.

    I didnt find that post even remotely funny.

    Next time pay attention and think before posting lame crap like the above, I was only joking with you in case you cant tell by the smileys, so in your own words stop acting like an assel.

    Talking

    Hey guys... WOW! Lots of responses... Portugal definitely representing!

    I'll actually be in Portugal from May 1st to the 4th or 5th, maybe a day earlier. I'm going to be DJing at a couple of clubs in Lisbon & Porto on the 2nd and the 3rd, so during the downtime and in between a little sightseeing, I will be looking to play and maybe purchase some games. We're working on the hotel accomodations through my manager and the booking agency, but it should be somewhere in Lisbon. I'll let you guys know via PM if interested.

    I'll make sure to pack a few Neo items along with me. I've been thinning down my AES collection to go to MVS, but I still have Kabuki Klash & ROTD on AES as well as ever y KOF except KOF 2002 (but will own it soon). And I have Garou and World Heroes Perfect, two games I previously owned on US AES, now on MVS. If any of you have a PC-Engine or TG-16, I can also bring you the Neo Geo ports of Fatal Fury Special and World Heroes 2 to look at. They're really good for 8-bit ports.

    Also... I'll be bringing my NGPC and will look forward to finally play MOTM or Gals Fighters against someone.

    More news to come soon... if you'd like, e-mail or send me a PM.

    WOW!!! so you're a DJ !!!

    Be sure to send us some invitations to see your shows.

    From my personal knownledge, nobody of us ( South Portugal members ) have a PC Engine, we had some TurboGFx but no Jap PCE.

    Sadly, you won't be finding anything for sale here related to Neo Geo or PCE. But you will surely play against us!! eheh!! If you can, you can come to our town wich is near Lisbon. Otherwise... We'll have to go heavily loaded with AES Carts to your Hotel!!! loco tickled

    Let us know !

    Shhhhhh... don't tell anyone! Everyone else just thinks I'm crazy.

    I think that can be arranged... I'm supposed to be playing at Club Mantra in Porto on May 2nd and Club Industria on May 3rd. Not sure what to expect from either of these places, but I saw some movie clips of the clubs in action and they look great.

    From my personal knownledge, nobody of us ( South Portugal members ) have a PC Engine, we had some TurboGFx but no Jap PCE.
    I only have a TG-16 w/ CD attachment myself. I just refer to it as the PC-Engine since it was much more popular in Japan and I pretty much buy nothing but imports for it now. I have a converter and an Arcade Card Pro so I can literally play any game that I want, except for Altered Beast.

    Sadly, you won't be finding anything for sale here related to Neo Geo or PCE. But you will surely play against us!! eheh!! If you can, you can come to our town wich is near Lisbon. Otherwise... We'll have to go heavily loaded with AES Carts to your Hotel!!! loco tickled
    I'll look forward to the challenges... hope I get some time to get my KOF skills back in order.

    Hi.

    Fisrt of all, I do have a japanese PC-Engine!
    A Core GrafX, though I don't play it much 'cause I don't have that many games...

    Second, if you're going to be Porto that week you MUST check out the "Queima das Fitas". It's the students big party. Every university has its own and it lasts a whole week. Every night concerts and lots and lots and lots of drinking...

    It's better to check it out in a week day 'cause it's just too crowded at the weekend. Also in the week days there's almost only students or former students. It's just better.

    Though not Tuesday wich is the day of the "Cortejo" (parade through the city) of the students. All afternoon people getting drunk and partying and at the end almost everyone goes to the "queima" at night, and the night is dedicated to the portuguese "pimba" music (wich is a mix of popular music and very bad singers...) it's just crap music, but everyone enjoys it that day...

    Anyway, there's the "queima" in Porto from 4th May 'till 10th may, and in Coimbra from 1st May 'till 7th May.

    Though the basis is the same there are some differences between these two "queimas" and I advise you to check them both if you can.

    Also, check the program for the day, before you go. In Coimbra the first day (1st May) is only dedicated to the "serenata" (serenade), wich consists of some students singing fado. But it's a different kind of fado from the one that is sung in Lisboa. In Porto the "serenata" is in the first Saturday, but there's party later.

    There partys last from the begining of the night, around 10pm until the rise of the day, everyday!

    As for the Neo Geo gaming scene, there's only us guys here... The system was never sold in Portugal so It's hard to find stuff here. The same goes for the PC-Engine.

    In arcades you can find lots of MVS games, but we don't usually have those cabinets labeled with the SNK brand.

    And finally, the clubs you're going to be at.
    I'm the only one here that is from Porto (the others are from Lisboa), so I can tell you something.

    I never went to "Mantra", so I can't tell how it is, but "Indústria" is one of the oldest and more renowned clubs in Porto. It's great!

    About those invitations... it would be great if you could get some...

    Anyway, I hope you like it here.

    p.s. What is your nickname as a DJ?

    Hey guys and gals... just a small update on the upcoming trip.

    I was originally planning to travel this weekend, but due to some scheduling conflicts with the clubs I was pushed back a week. That gives me another week to get my things together before I head over to Portugal. I'm speaking to the promoters to figure out how many names I can submit for a possible guest list for Mantra in Porto (May 9th), and Industria in Lisbon (May 10th). Send me an e-mail or a PM if any of you would want to come out and hear some music. I promise... a special musical surprise for Neo Geo fans will be played.

    Afterwards, I will be in Lisbon till May 13th, so if you'd want we can try to get together for a few hours and play some Neo Geo at one of the neighboring arcades.

    Oh, you'll be at "Indústria" in Lisboa. The original "Indústria" club is in Porto, so I though you were talking about that one.

    I never went to that "Indústria" club in Lisboa.

    Will you be able to access internet while you'll be here ? I would galdly be happy to meet you in person. I live about 45Km from Lisbon, so it shouldn't be a problem to me to get there. Be sure to give us your phone number by PM or mail when you arrive. It'll help sort things out.

    See ya on Industria pal!

    Hey Vinnyl, where the fuck are you hidden ?

    I asked some hotels about an "american DJ" , and all they told me was "we have a lot of american people spending their nights here, but we don't know if they're DJ's" .

    Hell! You even have not said your real name!

    What a pain in the ass. How can we find you man ?
