In this episode of RGDS, Garron & Matt are joined by special guests Sam Dyer (Bitmap Books) and Frazer Rhodes (@NeoGeoCollector) to discuss their brand new book.
The boys have being dying for an excuse to discuss Neo Geo on RGDS and this was the perfect time. Sam & Frazer go into intimate detail on the Neo Geo project, including scouring the world for perfect condition box art to photo, a few tough negotiations with SNK Japan and of course… playing some awesome Neo Geo games!
If you’re a fan of this great console you’ll love this show, and even if it’s just a curiosity there is much to learn in this episode.
Bitmap Books have kindly made one of the Collector’s Editions of the book available as a prize to RGDS listeners, so please stay to the end for further details on this great competition.
