My MVS is an OG MV-1 so it's enormous. I'm always looking at the smaller newer ones thinking I might buy one sometime.

. Man, that thing is gigantic xD. The purchases aren't that interesting, 4 games (Puzzle Bobble, Fatal Fury 2, Shock Troopers and Neo Geo Cup 98) are from a admin from Neo Geo Europe on Facebook, really cool dude
. The Neo Turf Masters and the CD controller is from eBay. The console is also from eBay too and from arcade_in_da_house but yeah, he used quite a bit of hot glue and wiring is also not good, wanted to open a thread where you post your CMVS so people can better make decisions if the modwork is good enough for them. Yeah, I could have asked the seller to show me the mod so that's on me. Will probably fix that up in the future by myself.
Here are my opinions on the games: Puzzle Bobble is quite fun and it's a great game for casual or non gamer. I don't really enjoy puzzle games except the really simple ones like tetris columns. Never really played Puzzle Bobble before, good to kill 20 min and getting a new highscore
Shock Troopers is really amazing, lot of charm, hard and fair gameplay and the soundtrack is also nice, was quite surprised to hear a drum n bass soundtrack because I'm used to it on the N64 and PS1, but not 16 bit systems. It seems it didn't get a lot of love, quite a shame. The second game seems not that good but I will get it too, luckily it's not too expensive either.
Fatal Fury 2 I played the least, I first need to learn all the moves and in general I don't play fighting games very often. But man are the sprites gigantic, pretty impressive. I don't really see the use of the 2 planes systems but I don't really put time into the game so yeah.
Neo Geo Cup 98 is at first overwhelming but just click through stuff that seems fitting. First I needed a bit of time to get to used to the controls but then it works well. Shooting a goal feels really good because you need to work for it and you're not 100% if you get it so it quite exciting. Want to get super sidekicks 3 also, heard this and Neo Geo 98 are regarded as the best soccer games on the systems and wanted to give Sport games on the system a chance and so far im happy that I did. Man, I play Neo Turf Masters the most, so damned addicted to it xD. So far I'm very happy that I bought the Neo Geo, had a lot of fun
