Experience the “Giga Power” as we discuss all things Neo Geo with Bitmap Books’ Sam Dyer, plus his new book on the brand’s history.
The future is now, ARGonauts! We welcome Sam Dyer of Bitmap Books on the show to give an audio companion with his new book Neo Geo: A Visual History talking about the console family under the brand name, favorite games from these platforms, and whether or not Nintendo stole the idea for the Nintendo Switch right under SNK’s nose.
ARGcast #84: The History of Neo Geo with Sam Dyer of Bitmap Books
We leave the news section for the end, but expect discussions on Housemarque sadly moving away from arcade style games, Nintendo’s billion reasons to keep supporting the Switch, and PlayStation’s showing during Paris Games Week. Oh, and the controversy swirling around “hard-hitting” trailers? That’s covered too.
The Stage of History this week keeps with the Neo Geo theme by welcoming war shooter NAM-1975, and chibi fighter SNK vs Capcom: Match of the Millenium. Robert then busts loose with old school manga turned game 8 Man in Obscura. Don’t miss out on our game giveaways (as well as our iTunes review game giveaway!)
