At the moment I've got nothing. I just (yesterday) sold a PC Engine. I tend to have overly fond memories of both the Neo and the Engine, i'll buy one, then realise they're 20 years old and maybe not QUITE as good as I remembered!!! I've probably had at least 10 Neo Geos in my time, and even more PC Engines!

I think my next one will be a PS3 with Grand Theft Auto, although I think I may be getting too old for computer games!

Looks like there will be several neo geo games available on the PS3. Art of fighting was my fave. Which may be enough with that and blu ray to convince me to buy one.

Never mind consoles. Last week we had to visit the outlaws. Years ago I gave the mother in law my old table top games in order for her to have something to do. Once again the house was ringing to the little ditty that Caveman plays whenever the dinosaur cooks the caveman who is trying to steal its eggs. Also heard the stereo (unbelievable levels of technology) of Firefox F7 sounds for the first time in twenty years!

Memories!
