For the next 72 hours, Humble Bundle is bringing back its NEOGEO bundle in quite the encore.
25 games total, from Metal Slug to Blazing Star. The games are split into the usual three tiers. All except for a couple of The King of Fighters games come with DRM-free versions, and nine of them come with Steam keys. I’ve taken the liberty of italicizing the games with Steam keys, cause I know how important such things are to people these days. I know I know. I like watching my Steam Library grow infinitely larger, too.
For whatever you want you can get: Art of Fighting 2, Fatal Fury Special, King of the Monsters, Metal Slug 2, Samurai Shodown II, Sengoku 3, The King of Fighters 2000, Baseball Stars 2, Blazing Star, Ironclad.
For beating the current average of $6.26, you get: The Last Blade, Pulstar, Metal Slug, Metal Slug 3, Shock Troopers, Neo Turf Masters, The King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Final Edition, Twinkle Star Sprites, Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers, The King of Fighters 2002. There’s also a Neo Geo 25th Anniversary Soundtrack.
The $10 one offering up: Shock Troopers: 2nd Squad, Samurai Shodown V Special, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Metal Slug X, The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match.
For anyone yearning to relive the NEOGEO days, the bundle will give you plenty to tinker around with, especially if you’re kicking yourself for missing out on the bundle the last time it was available.
As for me, I know me. I know me quite well. Every time I buy a classic game, I play it for roughly three minutes before forgetting it exists for the rest of time. It doesn’t prevent me from buying most bundles that show up, but it does cause me to question the philosophical significance of existence. I’m a walking existential crisis.
