I also updated the link / preview pic on the sidebar (I always enjoyed doing this, by the way). If in the future you wish a certain picture for the preview or if you even want to learn how to do it (it's in the settings of the "Sidebar Redux" Plugin) we can further communicate on this.
Thanks for advertising the next monthly chat meet Murikov. I'm looking forward to it. The first two were a big success. Everyone is very welcome.
I've added some more content to the Downloads section in the 'other downloads' category. Big thanks to AmigaJay and RiKo for their contributions. Probably in the future I'll add a separate section for NGCD downloads.
If only We get about 30-70 people more viewing the site over the 24 hour period after I promote it with a Tweet. That's gone up a lot from when we had less followers. Basically people will then join if they want to. But in a way we are also competing against Twitter. A lot of people are just happy being there and don't necessarily want to join a forum...yet The bigger NGF gets and the more cool stuff we have, the more of a pull it will exert
It's a really great, friendly and welcoming community here. Hopefully the forum grows and finds great success (I'm sure it will), you have have all done an amazing job!
Thank you for the kind words!
I have a bit of news. Two reviews by yours truly are now posted in the review section. Hopefully they prove worthy of your reading time. (Note: Don't put too much stock in the ratings; I don't think I'll be able to get the numbers calibrated correctly until I'm at least several reviews in.)
Also, a note for the mods:
I added that little bit at the bottom as proof of authorship. You won't be able to navigate to those (or any other) Neo Geo reviews on my website through normal means/internal links. Basically, you'd have to come here to find them. (There's also a link there to get back to the relevant page here.)
I didn't think it would be an issue having it, but if it is, please let me know.
Awesome Boogie! I love the reviews and they look great too. I haven't actually put much time into FF2 but I would def give FFS an 8/10 so agree with your review score there
Yes that plane system is divisive. Sometimes I wondered if they came up with it originally just because only Neo Geo could do that (with the scaling).
Only comments I would have is to maybe put an exact figure on the number of playable of characters in Fatal Fury Special (I think it's 15 or is it 16?) You did mention it was big but just so people know when reading the review. Because I think that was impressive for the time - having that many playable characters. I think anyway - I could be wrong. The other thing is that the AI is very very tough and also a bit cheap. That is the main thing I always notice when I play FFS compared to other games. I think it comes into it's own more in 2 Player mode tho. Anyway just some suggestions. You might not agree with them and the reviews are great as they are.
pimsbury: Sounds like SNK is thinking about anoth err Art of Fighting!

Murikov: Dear NGF bros, don't be surprised about the "Recent Threads" box below this shoutbox. I'll leave it there for testing purposes for a whole week, and if it works, we'll maybe enable it for good for this site.

pimsbury: Minecraft sucks...... you in.... whether you like it or not. Especially if you're playing survival mode. I spent a month on one map just trying to build a cool castle, but ended up building a giant rail system with huge bridges that linked up the mines

tuxedomarty: Welp, I'm doing something I never thought I would do in a million years. I am actually going to try out Minecraft for the first time ever, and it's all because of the TMNT stuff that was recently added as DLC.
