GOG release a bunch of SNK NEO GEO classics, all with Linux support

Posted by , / 5997 views

In the mood for some classic gaming? GOG have release eight SNK NEO GEO classics, all but one support Linux.

These are on top of the classic games they already have that support Linux, so it's great to see our collection with GOG become a little more complete.

What are the titles?

I'm almost certain they're some of the same (likely exactly the same) builds as seen in the Humble NEOGEO 25th Anniversary Bundle and the Humble Store. GOG sent me over a copy of some of them and after checking over, it seems they include the neogeo rom files and things like that. They are the builds done by DotEmu and they even hilariously include a "Humble.png" file which has been changed to the GOG logo, I'm guessing they couldn't get the filename changed for that one.

Jokes about the Humble image aside, it's good to see them on GOG so people have more choice in where to get them from.

Will you be grabbing any of these?

Hi ! Did anyone compare those versions with the emulator ones, in terms of input lag & video rendering ? Using Lakka/RetroArch + KMS + pixel shaders combinations, one can get amazing results.

The HB versions have the same exact ROMS that are found on the net with the exception of KOF2002 it's the 2nd version from the b model of the arcade release.

I wish they'd give Windjammers this treatment, but I doubt they will given the Playstation remaster that just came out. They want to milk that version for $$$ and probably won't take the time to port that to Linux.
