Neo Geo Launch Titles – Episode 086

New year, new miniseries as we dedicate our next group of episodes to answer a question posed years ago: “What Neo Geo games make it in the Podouken 4 Slot?” This episode is a gimme as the Neo Geo launched with four titles in the US: NAM-1975, Baseball Stars Professional, Top Players Golf, and Magician Lord.

What are the hosts’ first memories of the Neo Geo? Did Mr. SNK skate regular or goofy mongo? What are the four games currently in the arcade’s Neo Geo 4 slot?

We also answer some questions posted on the Podouken Discord like how we started an arcade, what it’s like dealing with hurricanes on the regular, our most troublesome games, and our favorite arcade-to-console ports.
