That looks like the outline of a table-top arcade machine to me.

Siracha brought that up in chat and I gotta agree ya both, though the control panel in front looks like it angles off too much.  Maybe it's a tease and that's a separate stick in front of a monitor?

I wouldn’t mind 8man, so I’d be stoked!

Of course, you are mocking my tastes!

When I bought my AES, Eightman was one of the first games I picked up.  This game was at a Super Saver Cinema near me and I loved it in the arcade.  Years later when I saw people had a negative opinion of the game online, I was absolutely shocked.

Yeah, I played it all the time in college at arcade... I loved that I could get far on a quarter (frugality!).

To be quite honest I don't consider the games I listed as "bad" either.

I'm curious.  I never had an Neo Geo as the prices were astronomical back then for the console and games, nowadays the prices on this stuff is insane.

The Neo Geo X was a mini console. It had AC in, HDMI out, full sized joysticks, etc. You must have jumped on the hate train before realizing what it was. It even has a fake plastic shell that looks just like the original but is smaller. Remember?

The issue with the X wasnt it being a handheld or a console (it was both)  but rather quality in key areas. No matter WHAT this thing is there is ZERO reason to suspect this thing wouldn’t suck just as bad in key areas making most of what’s good about it pointless. Sure, one could blame Tommo for the X but who do you blame for the software SNK is releasing these days?

I hope it’s great. I hope it’s as good as the last Neo Geo Pocket game they squeezed out, I just doubt that it will be. These types of produce are for people too young to remember the quality of the original.
