Maybe NCS won't have ANY neogeo carts

Adol

The French Connection, ,
I just got news from an important Hong Kong supplier..as far as i know,they were going to furnish Video Game Depot,but i'm not sure..and they don't furnish NCS,but whatever..

they can't have any stock,because SNK themselves haven't ANY...it was NOT a clearance sale,it was a kind of "preorder"..if they got a BIG asking,like 5000 pcs/titles ( VERY BIG indeed ),they'll
make repressing.
All the titles are not old stock, they just try to get enough order (>5000pcs/titles) to make re-release.


so i guess we won't have anything..

well

if thats NOT true
if them things you said are all bullshit
then may all my ghosts come back to haunt you

cos,you being a fuckin vendor and all
you prolly are HAPPY they wont have the carts

so you gonna sell the ones yer still have yerself at sky high prices,eh?

that certainly wouldnt surpise me

but if you were american,spanish,japanese,
chinese,whatever

i'd be like
fair cop mate
we're like cows,go on
here's a grand for yer


but you're french
so bugger off

so thats it
far as you're fuckin concerned
thats fuckin it

adieu

if them things are true
then
FUCK


fuck


fuck


fuck


fuck

fuck


personally
tis so called "neo-scene"

it is a bloody dump
and a sad place to be
and i'm sick to the back of me teeth

like..
i want to tell yer my story

i like burning fight

yeah,that "not even average" clone of
final fight

but somehow
and i DO NOT know how

i seem to like it

not loads

but enough

so about a month ago or so i was like
fuck it,gonna find it and get it,like...


yeah

not only it was bloody difficult to find it
and when i did find one,
tis person i was ( am ) dealing with

y'know

he said 45 dollars

then said he sold the game (!!)
(like,what the fuck,are you fuckin retarted?,
didnt you fuckin realize that BEFORE telling
me you wanted forty five dollars?)

then said wait i still got the game

then said he was gonna sell it for 60

then he wanted 50 but only cos it was a
different burning fight and wasnt mint

fact is

this is just an example

seen games like samurai spirits or art of fighting 1 sold on e bay for like....

MAD prices


people are all gone mad

meself INCLUDED for fooks sake

now

we all should pack our stuff
packed lunch and all
a fair amount of ambre solaire and shit
all in our rucksacks

we should all go together...like
in Tibet

for 3 months or summat

we should let things cool down a bit

right now if you want a neo game,
you're only puttin yerself in the right...

in the right shit

i speak for meself

but heard MANY MANY other stories

i cant lose my mental sanity over a stooopid
game like burning fight

i cant and i dont want to

if thats true for burning fight

i dont even want to imagine what id have
to do to get meself....

erm....


KIZUNA US,yeah??


( i wonder why that was the first one that
popped up in me mind,eh??? )

no,
right

kiddin aside

what i wanted to say is that i've had
a fuckin tiring day

i was all happy n cheerful
about shoock troopers 2 for 220 bucks

and tis bastard comes here and tells me
all bout his fookin friend in honk kong

my dream's in bits now!

bastards !

tis AINT FAIR


and now

some people are gonna be like
you scally !

i cant be arsed....................

* changes topic *

tis aint an attack
just commenting on what i see

i started to post me shit on here in september

and seen a few people....i wont name em
cos i cba

but they're fuckin creeps

you know who you are

like
someone'd just go
in the wanted section
lookin for kof 95,meself

and these fuckin idiots
they'd always reply
"shawn got it in his for sale page"

: ) ) )

with that stooopid smilin face underneath

like
go sort yer head out under a tree or summat

we aint fuckin blind

creeps

shawn,
and this what i like about the geezer

he really cant be arsed bout all this
he does his bit

y'know

and 'a dunno if i'm makin fuck all sense or what

NOTHING IS SACRED ANYMORE,yeah?


and it don't matter what none of you say, 'cause I'm having a great time


and I like tis post o'mine already
though I do realise that I shouldn't

yer right but...

I'm so rock n' roll it's unbelievable
Or maybe not...

and i must have got wrong end of the stick ?

whatever

i think i got me point across??


rock on,eh?
 
That's kinda wierd do you not think Adol...

I mean if they were going to rerelease or make a second run of carts why would they pick older titles or common titles? It would make more sense if they were to rerelease titles that are in a higher demand like Blazing stars, Pulstar, Metal Slug, Twinkle star spirits,Samurai Shodown 4, ff real bout, Kizuna Encounter, the last blades..etc..etc. instead of Samurai Shodown 2, or real bout 2 etc... I mean if they were going to take the time to make new carts then why spend the time with the ones that will not sell as much. Or maybe I am misunderstanding what you are saying

No I got the same message about the post Bruno. The same thoughts came to my head when I read that... why would SNK republish stuff like World Heroes and Nam? Makes sense to me that they would press stuff like you said.

It's my honest belief, that come next week(which I believe is the scheduled date), we will all see those carts at NCS and VGD... just my personal feelings on the matter.

Backstock from SNK makes sense... a rerelease of those in particular dosent... probably just a bad piece of info.

BTW, Fran, youre fookin halarious

Fran,
It’s ok. We were not offended. You are free to say what ever you like here. You do have very unique posts with unusual content. You provide the forums some variety of voice.

yeah also if you think about it selling a cart for $40 or so on the older ones, the parts alone for a rerun would cost more. No it has to be old stock on the older titles. There is no way some company would make a reprint of a cart to loose money. Unless SNK had a bunch of prefabed boards laying around and rom chips, boxes etc. and someone bought them at a real cheap price from then and are puting them together for resale. now that I can see, but to reprint from scratch with out prefabed parts would cost to much to make a profit.

I agree. It would not make any sense to reprint these old titles. The games were most certainly old stock. However, I've gotten a little nervous about VGD. Last Thursday, they made it so you could no longer place online preorders for any of the games, even the ones that were not designated as being sold out. Maybe they did this because they were not sure of how much stock they would be getting and wanted to play it safe.

No offense Adol, but your story sounds unlikely to me. I agree with others here, it wouldn't make sense for SNK or Aruze to remanufacture older carts like NAM 75, Ghost Pilots, Cyber Lip, etc. I agree with others here, if they were considering manufacturing brand new carts, they'd look at Metal Slug, Blazing Star, Pulstar, Last Blade 2, Garou MOTW, Samurai 4, etc.

I'm not saying that this whole deal might now fall through, that's possible, but the theory about making new carts based on demand makes no sense at all given the carts being offered.

Well i recieved an E-mail from NCS today confirming my preorder, and they will be their next week! taking into account the holiday does't fucken delay them. and this bull about SNK and Aruze going or even considering making new runs of any game is bullshit. viewpoint and if their others was the only one that they made more then one run. Iv'e been sending e-mails to SNK in the earlier days to make fucking reruns of the harder to get carts and all it did is fall on deaf ears. Now it's the game of how much money you want to spend to get a copy of MS-1 or NM. it's a friggin shame what this hobby has turned into,MONEY! the best thing that could happen is aruze turn out the most wanted games at a fair price, but then again why did they buy SNK in the first place? this would drive the price of these games down to where everyone can enjoy the pleasure of owning and playing the BEST gamesystem in the world PERIOD. NOT JUST THE RICH.

you're too right,brother

too right

its a shame
its a crying shame

and when i say things like
its madness
a game like twinkle star sprites
CANNOT and shouldnt be sold
at that price

i always get misunderstood
and i'm tired of that

but yeah
we just want the games,yeah?

we just want to play,eh?


or are we simply doin this with the neo carts because we know they're rare,
expensive,and cool?


this is the question we all should answer

in our heart and that


i wanna be honest


for me,bit of both

in the sense that from a gamer point of view
i'd only have 15 / 20 carts

but when you have a neo geo
you cant help it

you're like...
hmmmmm
itd be GREAT to have many of them big expensive colorful carts

thats why i bought samurai 3

thats why i bought art of fighting 3


they're both shite games

but y'know

the collection......bla bla bla


d'you know what i mean??


i'm afraid i'm makin fuck all sense again
and after what happened yesterday

i just wanna stay silent and never say
a thing again


so thats it

take care bro

see you in the next one,
have a good time

No Fran
you just speak your peace,cause their is quite a few of my friends that are hard core
gamers that feel this way. hell most of the guys i know are over 40+ except a couple. you know it's funny how know one can get an inside connection with snk or now aruze and start piping some input into those people and let them know what the hell we want. heck if i had the time and money i would be over there right now busting their BALLS, but has to be a better way through the internet! just my opion. hupplark_39

well

nothing's gonna change

the times are not ripe,
things will only get worse
this aint a revolution
and i'm not marchin already

i aint moving,fella

its a bit like a bubble
it grows and grows and grows
it becomes fuckin huge

and then explodes


the mad thing is
i bought mark of the wolves in april 2000

it was expensive back then
and i thought
fuck it its gonna be the last fatal fury game

lets go for it

i was really disappointed
the game aint very good
i'm not sayin it is crap

but i was probably expectin too much
or maybe not?


who knows

but the truth is
it lacks...
it lacks that snk style that made me such
a loyal neo fan

that aint snk

thats snk tryin to copy capcom
or summat

and no
i'm havin NONE of that

i paid 300 $ for it
more or less


now if you want it,
you gotta have 500 dollars in yer hands

the only thing i say to meself is:
thank god i already owns that not
particularly good game

and thats it
and no
i never ever said

i'm double happy the prices are rising
cos i dont give a fuck,i already have motw

never

so where do we go from here?

i really dont know
