Love the Bosconian, River Patrol and Xevious.
Ha...bring back heaps of memories from high school with MAME..such nostalgic stuff that I use to pay 10c or 20c to play back then....
It definitely brings back memories and they are a blast to play! Even though the joystick is $100 it should pay for itself fairly quick considering the cost of arcade games these days
I've been downloading a bunch of NeoGeo games today and they play great. The XArcade joystick seems like a nice piece of hardware, my only complaint is that you need a PS2 keyboard connected to it when booting otherwise Windows doesn't see it - for me anyway. Also, it came with a broken button. Since I ordered a HotRod joystick online I'll just return the XArcade one when the other one arrives.
I got my friend hooked and now he wants to get a 4 player joystick. He doesn't have the proper tools to build one himself and the only 4 player joystick I saw was from slikstik and they want $700
