I think thats the problem... I don't like the fighting game genre. Never have. So that rules out about 90% of the NEO GEO's output to me.
If you're a fighting game fan, then I'd imagine it's be right at the top of your favourite console list.

Really? I absolutely loved the controller.
So did I. It's second only to the Xbox 360 controller in my eyes.

What? not one single game.
I can't think of one. There may be one I haven't heard of that I might like, but I've never seen a game for it that I wanted to play.

Thank you. Will take a look at Atari versions, as quite like the idea of Targ.

Re: What's Your Favourite Exidy Arcade Game?

Very quickly had another look at your recommendations Pepper II to me looks like a copy of Amidar/Qix. Venture I just don't like the look of. However on a very quick replay I could see myself quite liking Venture - although it is a bit of a Berzerk a like. Targ could be fun, I like the idea - like a...

Re: What's Your Favourite Exidy Arcade Game?

Exidy weren't really very good were they. I suppose if you played one in the day then you'd have an affection for it,but they don't really stand the test of time. Having just MAME'ed those on the list there are none I'd vote for. They all look a bt 'budget' rip off a like. The K-Tel of the arcade w...

Re: Are you backing the Spectrum Next

FPGA is just a chip that can be told to be like another chip - you configure it so the logic gates and stuff are the same as the chip you want it to be. The serious tech heads will try to convince you it isn't emulation, but it is, just emulated by the hardware rather than software. True, emulation...

Re: Doctor Who Community Buzzing With Rumours

Not bad so far, Bill's looking to shape up as a good companion. Felt that the last episode could have been a two-parter, more room for the ending. I agree, the first two episodes of this series have been very good. I was sceptical about watching it, as last series was awful and nearly put me off Dr...
