:help:

Anyone enjoying this that didn't necessarily care for Fast Striker? Just curious because personally I was excited for FS based on the trailer, but pretty underwhelmed when I finally got a chance to play it. I'm hoping that's not the case for this game.

I think I can count myself in being in that crowd. Neo XYX just feels like a better package overall, despite seeming to have less content at first glance (no different modes, just one playable ship...). But it's more focused, has better graphics and I prefer the scoring system.

In fact, I´ve been wondering why no Neo game does that. Even Super Nintendo games had all kinds of processors/special chips on many of the games.
maybe the Neo Geo was awesome enough on it's own? AFAIK the extension chips on the Super Nintendo were supposed to prolong the life of the console and keep Nintendo present in the market while the N64 was delayed and Sony as well as Sega challenged Nintendos position with their new consoles. Don't know if there was a similar situation for SNK/the Neo that would have called for a hardware boost...

So there is a second CPU built into the PGM carts?

Man, so theoretically you could boost the Neo to the Moon like a second 68k@12MHz and maybe a second videoprocessor via the carts Programm PCB. With cartsizes in GigaByte regions there would be literally no limits.

That's why the neo should have a killing driving game "outrun" style.

It actually does strike me as sort of odd that the Neo Geo never did get a vertical game. I bet they considered it with Strikers 1945 Plus. PGM and CPS systems saw vert games, even though their libraries were predominantly horizontal, likewise for Naomi and countless other multi-game setups. XYX being the first vertical game on the system is kind of odd now that I really think about it.

Exactly, since Neo can shrink/reverse shrink the whole screen with all moving objects it would be interesting to see such a game.

@Buffi, hmm this big sqaure chip seems to be a support processor, nice.

neo xyx AES has sold out already!

Much sooner than I thought. They're still planning another run of 50 or so copies without the goodies as an option later, the JPN AES cover is the best by far.

nice write-up; I've only put in a few credits worth myself, but hope to get more time in this weekend. I have to say playing in hori mode on my gold cab is really detracting from my overall enjoyment of the game. I thought I would be able to look past it, but it is quite disorienting. [top down sprites w/ hori].

question, did the game release at 1.0 or 1.1?

1.0, 1.1 is a beta patch. 1.2 could be interesting if there's JP player feedback.

I'm still on the fence about this game for whatever reason. It looks like a fun game and I'd like to own it but for some reason I'm a little underwhelmed when I compare it to Fast Striker. I remember being blown away when I saw Fast Striker for the first time and I'm not really getting that same feeling with this one. There are 5 more MVS reprints available and one of those may have my name on it but I'm just not convinced yet. Maybe I'll wake up tomorrow feeling differently, who knows.

That is exactly what I thought when I first saw it. I'm not 100% convinced. Otherwise I would have preordered instantly. Maybe I'll get the DC version who knows.

Well, with a tate setup that some of the candy cabs have I can see people playing the mvs cart. But does that hold true for the homecart or DC versions as well?

Got mine this afternoon, set it up on the Egret II. Great little game this one, all you guys sitting on the fence should get on this. Will post some pics of it setup in my cab tomorrow.

Blows fast striker away, not even in the same ballpark.

That's nice to hear from a couple guys whose opinions I respect.
Cheers for the videos and impressions, fellas.

I assume you're referring strictly to the gameplay because visually it doesn't hold a candle to Fast Striker from what I've seen. The gameplay does look quite good, I have to admit.

It definitely screams for multiple parallax layers of scrolling.
