THE BUZZ: For PS3 and PSP owners who love SNK’s classic Neo Geo games, this is a good week to pick up some games.

EGM’s TAKE: From today until January 24th, all Neo Geo Station games will be 50% off. Here’s the list of titles this sale will cover:

  • Alpha Mission II
  • Art of Fighting
  • Baseball Stars Professional
  • Baseball Stars 2
  • Fatal Fury
  • League Bowling
  • Magician Lord
  • Metal Slug
  • Metal Slug 2
  • Samurai Shodown
  • The King of Fighters ’94
  • The King of Fighters ’95
  • The King of Fighters ’96
  • Shock Troopers
  • Super Sidekicks
  • World Heroes

 

I’m a long-time SNK / Neo Geo fan—in fact, I still have my Neo Geo home console—so I might have to pick up a few titles from this sale. Sure, I already own Neo Geo collections in various ways, but it would still be nice to have a game like Shock Troopers around in such a capacity.

I do, however, have to complain a bit about the selection. It seems like SNK Playmore was trying to almost go for a “complete library” type of release schedule, which is great–unless their plans slow down, which they seem to have done. As much as I can appreciate having some of the above games available, I’d prefer SNK to concentrate on the games players really want.

You know, stuff like The King of Fighters ’98, Samurai Shodown 2, Metal Slug 3, Mark of the Wolves, Last Blade 1 + 2—games like those.
