My High Score: +16

As @Gianna said, this was my first time to actually sit down and enjoy my new Neo Geo! Neo Turf Masters was one of the top reasons I wanted to get back into Neo Geo, it's a fantastic game. I used to have a Neo Geo years ago but just couldn't get it into it as I'm not that big into fighting games. But I LOVE arcade games in general, and once I got a broader sense of what the Neo Geo can be, I saw there was a ton there for Atari classic gamers to enjoy! I'll take a deeper dive into this in upcoming topics I'm sure. Neo Turf Masters was just awesome, and it played great on the original Neo Geo arcade stick with new Seimitsu LS-56 joystick, Sanwa micro switches for the stock buttons, and AES button PCB from Taitoc labs.

Hoping to get a few more rounds of golf in before we close this Squad Challenge out. More to come!

My New High Score: +6

 

Upped my game last night with a better performance. I'm really enjoying Neo Turf Masters. Although I was the one who nominated this game specifically, I should credit @RickR with nominating the general idea of us playing a Golfing game in HIgh Score Squad to celebrate the Masters Tournament. This has been great.

I do love me some sports games!

This is completely unrelated, but I wanted to share anyway.  I've been playing an NES baseball game that I've never even heard of called "Bad News Baseball".  I don't think it would make a good high score challenge, but the game really got me thinking about NES vs. 7800 arguments (as in "the 7800 was just as good as the NES if they'd just written good software").  This game will really make you rethink that opinion.  The game has a level of polish that I don't think the 7800 can do.  The sounds (3 part music + speech + baseball effects) are astounding.  The quality of the text for scores and such (they look like an arcade machine).  The little cut-scenes (between innings, and my favorite -- the high-five line when you get a homer).  I honestly don't think the 7800 is capable of any of this to this level of quality.

My New High Score: -6

I've been playing one round of golf a night. Seeing steady improvement. This time I was able to become the winner of my tournament.

This is a very cool golf game! I'm glad all of you have been able to join in on this one.
