Striker/world soccer

Guy must have meant to put 99p start price instead if buy it now

Also Atsushi Onita Frontier Martial Arts Wrestling, which is actually a vs fighter and looks a bit ropey

But its Onita! And was cheap and unusual looking

King of Fighters 95 for the Neo Geo AES :mrgreen: My plan is to slowly grab the KOF Neo Geo games over the next year or so that I'm missing.

I've got all of them on the Neo Geo CD but don't have 96,99, 2002 or 2003 on AES.

The last two are pretty much off limits being too expensive.

I have them all on the Neo Geo X, Android devices oh and PS2! :lol:

I've got the later ones on the Dreamcast and PS2, however the ports (especially 98 on the DC) was never perfect which is why I ended up with an AES. So far I have 94, 95 and 98. I'll end up with 96 soon enough and 99 doesn't look too expensive to track down. 97 shouldn't be too bad either. The rest though I expect will be pretty expensive to track down...

How does the Virtual Console version of KOF 98 fare? It seemed to be quite solid, and noticeably the shadows work perfectly on the characters, unlike when used on MAME.

No clue, I'd not even realised Neo Geo games were even released on the Virtual Console. That's cool :D

Still slowly getting the hit squad releases on the Speccy. Had 5 come through the letterbox (well, the posties hand to mine): Batman The Movie, Batman the Caped Crusader, The Untouchables, Fun School 2 and Hyper Sports. Bought Green Beret last night and won Ghostbusters II for 99p and about 2 quid postage. And I've just got Another World on XB1 for 3.20, even though I have it on the amiga, PS3 and now this
JSW's Guff Emporium! <- My bit of t'internet.

^^^ Love those boxes David. So much better than the dull PAL versions and being from Japan, in much better condition too I'll bet :)

Myself, I finally got around to picking up Vampire: Darkstalkers Collection on NTSC-J PS2. Bought it from a Japanese ebay seller who I buy from quite frequently and it's in superb condition. Really pleased with this.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

It says you can get discounts for bulk, but i have never bought from abroad and wasnt sure how customs worked so asked him to send seperately so it wasnt a high value single package

Didnt get any customs charge and each package was marked as 600 yen value, so i guess he has marked a low price to avoid charges


Will definitely use him again
