DNF (Did Not Finish)
- Apr 25, 2011
Not seen anyone mention this... but yes... yet another Mini in the works.
Where did you hear it's using Linux on MIPS?Had internal details about that since a few weeks already, but I'm not that fond of it.
The Mini Arcade is nice, but not really usable if you want to play games.
I think it would be better to release a table-top NeoGeo machine with proper arcade controls.
Let's hope that the two USB joystick ports at least support a standard controller so you can use arcade sticks.
They're using Linux on a MIPS system, so that's neat
LOL, Yeah I've been following that project for awhile and it was always at the top of my list in regards to a mini cab. I like the smaller size of that item vs. larger ones, but having a Pandora/Pyra, there isn't much need for me to have a lap/handheld style device. I'm not that big a fan of joysticks over a d-pad, so even though I could use the Starforce pretty much anyplace, it's not likely I ever would. But then opting for one of the bigger DIY table top models, I probably wouldn't use that much either. As those take up counter and or table space, and I really don't have the room. So something like that would end up in the closet never to be used more than likely.This kinda makes me wish that Starforce Pi thing had been released instead.
The list of games were leaked also. I would copy /paste them here but I have only seen them on YouTube videos. ETA Prime has a video on his channel that lists them, it is actually a really good list.There can't be enough NeoGeo. Question is, which games are included. And how you play the 2-player games together, so basicly almost all NeoGeo games when I remember correctly.
Yeah, the sad thing about that is, there are more classic SNK game on the NS than actual "N" ones. And what's even sadder, is that will probably be the case for the life of the NS.If I was into Neo Geo games more (and didn't wanna go through emulation), I would probably play them on the Nintendo Switch. Have you seen how many games are on there (and other consoles, to be fair)? I've been tempted by Garou/KoF, Samurai Shodown, and Metal Slug games.
WOW, I didn't even notice that, as that must be the reason I actually got the message in the first place. When I got the email I just assumed it was because I back mostly gaming related stuff, so I got an email for a gaming item. But now looking back, it wasn't one of the typical "you might like this product" emails, it was specific to just the one campaign. Normally when one company is helping another(in crowdfunding), you get an email from one saying to help support this different project, but I didn't get that, so I wonder what part they may be playing in these Coleco units?
