After making my return to neo-geo.com earlier today after an 18 year absence, I realized I didn't belong here if I didn't own a Neo Geo (I'd sold mine a decade ago to help buy a home).

So I went to the local game store down the street tonight and bought one. US AES with original hook ups, one stick and a Japanese copy of Samurai Shodown. $999.

Going to start hunting for a second stick and more games. It's been a great day. Thanks for all the insults in the other thread. Made me feel welcome.

Pro tip: ya don't need a fuckin $1000 US AES to be a member here but you did buy an all inclusive pass to being assfucked for eternity

Now I see what the issue is.

You mistakenly believe I paid $1,000 for a US AES.

Don't worry! I paid under $1,000. All good buddy.

Stop responding to the people writing to me? It must matter to them to bring it up in the first place.
You won't last long here with that attitude.

Anyway, the price seems a bit high to me for one without the most important part of a US console: The box. But what do I know? I'm not keeping up with these crazy prices anymore. As long as you're happy. I think you probably paid a bit of a premium to buy it locally.

Well that's really the issue here. A bunch of people who haven't been keeping up with these crazy prices anymore have been arguing with someone who has been keeping up with these crazy prices very very closely.

So while I understand people being shocked by how much US AES have been going for, the market is what the market is. A system with two sticks, no games, no box just sold for over $1,300.

There are very few US AES being offered for sale and unless pieces are cracked off, it's gonna sell for double of a Japanese unit.

No the issue is you and people like you are retarded and we're all trying to tell you you're retarded but because you're retarded you don't get it.

Yeah, if you address every comment you'll get bored quickly.

Pick and choose

Everyone will be happier.

Thanks for the advice buddy! If you have any other advice in the future, I'll be sure to let you know I read it.

Got something been meaning to pick up for a while. JBA: Heritage for the Future.

Fucking LOVE JoJo! Been re-reading Stardust Crusaders recently and came across this for a song at Tops Games so I considered it serendipity.

No CD version, so it's more or less a dedicated board, but I don't like TS so there ya go. 🤷 Chuffed as nuts right now.
