The Neo Geo Pocket Color has the best library of cancelled games of all time.

Jordan Scott

Here's a list of games, in case Holla Forums isn't familiar with any of them. From left to right, top to bottom:

Faselei: Strategy RPG and mech programming game where you control one mech and preprogram its actions every turn as you go through and blow stuff up.

Ganbare Neo Poke Kun: Humorous tamagotchi kind of game and amazing minigame collection. Very surreal humor with great artwork, tons of animations, and some minigames that are on the level of full retail games. Great stuff.

Dark Arms: Beast Buster: Top down action-RPG with a gothic theme and lots of guns.

Melon-chan's growth diary: A raising sim with adorable artwork where you raise a girl over the course of 12 years.

Cool Cool Jam: Rhythm RPG. Really unique game.

Nigeronpa: Very cute RPG where you collect allies, but they all have different personalities. If they disagree with the things you do, they can get fed up and leave you forever.

Puzzle Bobble Mini: It's mini puzzle bobble, and that's great

Delta Warp: Super stylish puzzle game with awesome music, developed by IOSYS. Videos and pictures alone don't do it justice, it's way more fun than I anticipated.

Densha de go! 2: It's a train sim, but strangely relaxing and fun. Great graphics, and overall a very worthwhile game.

Super Real Mahjong: 18+ strip mahjong game with very high production values. I know most people would ignore it for being a mahjong game, but it's probably the only official handheld eroge ever made, the story is hilarious, and the music is great.
cart-only games

Metal Slug: Actually completely different from the arcade games, it's way more open and varied. It's more like an action adventure run and gun game, except the action is consistently on par with the actual metal slug arcade games.

Tsunagete Pon! (AKA Puzzle Link): Cool puzzle game where you link up any panel to any other panel of the same color to start chains. Good stuff.

Comment too long, so I'll stop there.

There's topic on /vr/ that haven't been bumped sine 2016, nobody's going to post on a board that slow. Here, have a pocket color video.

This is a board for 15 year olds, they've never even played a single neo geo game in their life much less owned a neo geo console.

That's why I made a topic about it. I have access to every game now, so I thought we could get a topic going.

Are there any good emulators for this console? I've been really wanting to try out Sonic Pocket Adventure and the SNK vs Capcom game on it.

discussion is bad because I don't want teenagers to step out of their 8th gen box
Eat shit.

Eli Butler
Eli Butler

I'm sure there are going by the youtube videos. If there were an accurate emulator on 3DS that would be best. For the time being I'm just playing on original hardware since the thumbstick is so good.

SNK vs Capcom

Probably the best game on the system. The mini-games alone are worth it/. there's a fan translation of Card Fighter's Clash 2 if you're interested.

Man I recall getting this early 2000's. Ended up trashing it some time in 2012 when cleaning out my garage. Fucking stupid of me, should of sold it at least

It was a damn good system, to bad it had next to no games for it.

Adrian Robinson

Fucking nobody owned this thing
The console was out for less than a year before all the units were pulled from shelves and scrapped to be turned into chinese garbage

Isaac Cox
Isaac Cox

and scrapped to be turned into chinese garbage

They were turned into blister packs. Funny enough, a few games like Faselei & Last Blade were both in production at that time, so they produced the carts, but not the boxes. A few years later people thought they were never released, & out of nowhere these blister packs showed up at EB games with ESRB stickers proving they were just about to some out. Those two titles are really expensive for that reason. They made almost no copies.

There was a topic on the autistic neo geo forums, where they couldn't find a physical photo of a Neo Geo in a store for display in the 90's. the general consensus being it was so rare you really could only order them from magazines.

Google search is giving me nothing. I'm betting it's engrish. Most SNK games were forced to have english & Japanese on a single cart, regardless of if the developer knew english or not. This led to all the crash translations you see in Neo Geo games. that's part of their charm though.

Isaiah Roberts

No, Willow is a type of magical candy in the Cotton universe. I literally own like 500 dollars worth of cotton collectibles alone, I know this stuff.

Ohhhh ok. You have the SEGA genesis Tea cups then? I've always wanted those. The NGP port seems kinda rushed. I thought there would be more music. Nothing plays during Tea Time at the end of a level.

Easton Reed

just like the original

I own two teacups (original & cotton 2 magical night dreams), the 1998 arcade poster for cotton boomerang, an official manga, magazine clippings for the US turbo duo game, and the "complete" 30th anniversary 4-cd soundtrack.

the US turbo duo game

I thought the U.K. version of the NGP game was the only cotton game ever released in english? what did they do, make 500 copies of cotton in english on the turbo duo?

Looking for pictures of a Neo Geo for sale in the U.S., not japan.

neo-geo.com/forums/showthread.php?271909-/

Here's the topic. They were looking for proof the actual system was for sale on shelves at toys R s, etc. I'm sure it was, it's just that nobody bothered to take a picture. If everyone had a camera phone back then I'm sure something would have popped up.

make 500 copies of cotton in english on the turbo duo?
something unfortunately low like that. Cotton 2/boomerang also had English-Arcade releases. I sadly missed an auction in April for a Cotton Fantastic Night Dreams arcade board for only 42 dollars in April. It's important to check regularly for the things you love. It's one of those $300-500 turbo CD games.

Gavin Collins

Yeah I was joking. I did see it back then in a store once in a while, but it was rare. I even knew one very rich kid who actually had one and literally everything else in the first week of release.

Speaking of handhelds and Neo Geo, does anyone know if the games that were ported to Switch are decent? By that I mean did they do a good job porting them.

Jason Barnes

I always wanted to know if this obscure handheld was any good was thinking of picking one that was with a final fantasy game but dropped it because I was more interested in obscure DS games.

I need to get a supergun one of these days so I can collect arcade boards. Would love to own a PCB for some Jamma games.

The DS is better for sure. Nothing beats the DS. If you're an SNK fan though it's a must have.

They're ok, but they're ports so the color isn't going to match the originals. you get what you pay for. They're like what, $5 ports?

You need yourself a Neo Geo CD controller. It's like a big version of the pocket stick.

Well it was either pay 70 bongs & have every game on one cart, or pay 300 bongs for an english copy of cotton (seriously, where do cotton collectors get their money?) The english version of Evolution is also retard levels of expensive.

too late, already replied.

I own physical carts of both shock trooper games. Really need to sit down with them one of these days. I bought them months ago & haven't had a chance to play them.

You might not like it if you've played newer fighters, but do so. Start with maybe Fatal Fury 2 or Special, then play Art of Fighting.

They get worse the further back you go, but they're all generally very good.

Best: Garou: Mark of the Wolves
2nd Best: tie Between Real Bout, Real Bout 2, & Real Bout Special
3 & special go here
Nobody plays the original game or the sequel

The pocket game is better than the first 2 games in the series, so you can tell how badly those first 2 aged. There's also a 3D game on PS1 you can ignore.

WS has bigger library than NGP but most of it is either ports or spinoffs. Only really original stuff I can think of is Riviera, Lumines and that rhytm game with girl in frog costume. Maybe also the DJ series but only because of the controller addon.

Luis Jenkins

Not Lumines but Gunpey, my bad.

It was only slightly more expensive than the Saturn, which was being retailed for FIVE HUNDRED AND FORTY FUCKING DOLLARS at Toys R Us at launch. Besides, people use some magical thing called "layaway" or "installment plans" to buy shit they normally couldn't afford in one go, over time.

The focus was on the NGP(C) and the Neo Geo AES. If you have a Wonderswan boner, the onus is on you to talk about it.

Brody Jackson

Even Babbage's wasn't offering it for much less at the time. The problem with using the Internet as a source is people often repeat shit that they didn't personally witness, and espouse it as absolute truth. All retailers had to do was offer it as a cheaper alternative to the 3DO.
