Neo Geo Tribute is Suitably Epic, Features Lots of Sexy Hardware
Posted by Damien McFerran
The feel of gorgeous hardware is one thing the Virtual Console can't emulate
Thanks to the wonder of the Virtual Console, we've seen a few choice slices of Neo Geo goodness on the Wii. Titles such as Metal Slug, King of Fighters '94, Magical Drop III and Samurai Shodown II are true classics of video gaming history, and when you consider how incredibly expensive these games were back when they were launched, the fact that you can get them for chump change these days is something we should be very, very grateful for.
However, there's a school of thought that says you can't beat the experience of owning the original hardware, and that viewpoint is certainly supported by Aaron Nanto's jaw-droppingly gorgeous Neo Geo: Bigger Badder Better movie.
Nanto - who is a professional photographer and movie-maker by trade - is a total video game junkie, having already professed his undying love for NEC's PC Engine range of consoles. He's spent months cooking up this SNK-flavoured project, and the results look amazing - as you can see for yourself below.
