Thanks to the S&P control argument it seems you guys missed out on whats coming out in the US store this monday:

FATAL FURY (NEOGEO, 1-2 players, rated T for Teen - Violence, 900 Wii Points): Released in 1991 and one of the longest-running series in the fighting-game genre, this title introduced players to Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi. Select one of the three and visit many locations as your chosen fighter engages in numerous street fights around the fictional city of South Town. If you're good enough, you'll eventually take on Billy Kane and then his boss, the notorious crime lord Geese Howard. Use each fighter's own finishing maneuver and battle in two different planes on the screen, one in the foreground and the other farther away in the background. The game also features a two-player mode that is well known for its unique setup, which allows fighters to both fight and help each other. Do you have what it takes to win the King of Fighters tournament?

WORLD HEROES (NEOGEO, 1-2 players, rated T for Teen - Animated Blood, Violence, 900 Wii Points): A fighting game released in 1992 featuring eight characters, including Hanzo, Janne and Rasputin, modeled on historical figures from throughout the ages. The fighters compete against each other to become the world's toughest combatant, with players using a setup consisting of only three buttons (one each for punching, kicking and throwing). Adding to this unique system is the fact that the strength of your offensive blow depends on how long the button is pressed and held. Along with regular match styles, Death Match mode is also available and features mines, electrified ropes and other dangerous objects in the battle arena that can change conditions during the fight or damage players. Enjoy the wide range of combat forms as you take on history's best!

ART OF FIGHTING (NEOGEO, 1-2 players, rated T for Teen - Animated Blood, Violence, 900 Wii Points): This fighting game, released in 1992, began the story of the Sakazaki family and Robert Garcia, further developed in two later sequels. Yuri Sakazaki has been abducted by Mr. Big to punish her father, Takuma, and her brother, Ryo. To rescue her, Ryo and Robert must take on numerous enemies around South Town, eventually reaching the mysterious Mr. Karate. The passion of the game's creators is evident in the unique game-play elements introduced. These include an energy gauge that is depleted every time a fighter uses a special maneuver, Desperation Attacks that are usable only when a fighter's health is low and camera zooming that adjusts on the fly as fighters move around the stage. All these features ensure that players use strategy and tactics, rather than simply mash buttons. Adding to the mix are little touches such as characters showing cuts when they are injured and voice-over samples during cut scenes. Can you perfect the art of fighting and save Yuri?

Looking good B)

The usual stirrers? Whenever I come into this thread, you seem to be at the heart of it.

I can't help it if you can't cope with a post that is anything other than a Nintendo gush-fest. There's actually quite a lot of useful information in my posts which some people may be interested in. If you're not interested, then just ignore it.

Yeh I can't cope, that would be it!

yes but all your posts are completely negative and just bemoan how the latest VC release is raping your childhood.

Linking to a solution for people wanting to play N64 games on the pad they were designed to be played on, and singing the praises of and offering gameplay advice for Sin & Punishment is considered negative? Anyway, back on topic, I've finally had confirmation about the N64 adaptor cable I linked to several pages back. The maker of the cable has confirmed that both button mapping configurations can be programmed in and activated individually. Here are the full config details for those people interested:

Config A1 (Default)
GameCube N64
L Z
Z L

Config A2 (Activate by holding L button when connecting the controller)
GameCube N64
L L
Z Z

Config B1 (Default)
GameCube N64
C-Stick Left Left C-Button
C-Stick Right Right C-Button

Config B2 (Activate by holding R button when connecting the controller)
GameCube N64
Y Left C-Button
X Right C-Button

Excuse my ignorance, but apart from Metal Slug and all these fighting games, is there anything I should be looking forward to on the Neo Geo?

From my days pumping coins into a neo-geo multi cab at my local snooker club I would say 'the side on football one' (Super Sidekicks 2?), 'the frisbee one' (Windjammers as mentined) and 'the isometric rally one' (which came in two flavours, neither of which I can remember the name of)

I'm just hoping that if I wail about it enough, my wish will come true, like when I was a kid and I used Mother Shipton's magic petrifying well and got a police siren for my bike.*

*true story!

SMB3 and SMB RPG will surely be released alongside Super Mario Galaxy?

I wish they'd stop doing that. See also: Super Metroid.

What makes them think that I want to play three Mario games all at once? I'd rather they spread them out. Give us classic Mario or Metroid games a couple of months before the release of the new instalment so we can build up anticipation and actually find the time to do the old games justice.

They released Super Metroid the week before Corruption, didn't they?
