Re: Double Dragon Gamegear?

To me the 1992 Sega Game Gear Double Dragon was the strangest of all the DD games. (and yes, that includes "DDV", Neo Geo Double Dragon, PC Engine "DD2" and the Game Boy DD games) The graphics look great, reminding me of Tecmo's 1988 Ninja Gaiden arcade game meets Konami's 1989 a...

Re: Double Dragon IV (from Arc System Works)

Hi guys!!! I watched some reviews and some playthrough videos. Would have loved if this was released on 3ds to buy it. I don't have PS4 and too lazy to config the laptop to Steam (also I dont have credit card so unable to buy it). I agree and specially I UNDERSTAND your comments guys, but here's my...

Re: Double Dragon IV (from Arc System Works)

I watched two complete playthru vids on youtube by different players, as well as a playthru of the tower mode. I'm trying to make sense of what Arc Systems was going for here. I can definitely see where reviews calling it a weird rom hack fan game come from. The game's graphics seem to be a bizarre ...

Re: Double Dragon IV (from Arc System Works)

Been seeing this image lately on the Arc System's Kunnio/River City Rampage promotion.
Not sure if its a mode within River City Rampage Tokyo Rumble or another teaser

Re: Double Dragon IV (from Arc System Works)

The original team is behind it? Damn. Well I will say, these promo graphics do have me excited http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/dd4_shinchaku_thumb.png http://www.arcsystemworks.jp/dd4/assets/img/top/doubledragon4.png http://static3.gamespot.com/uploads/square_medium/15...

Re: Double Dragon IV (from Arc System Works)

Also torn on this. When I saw someone post about a DD4 trailer on social media, I thought it was a fan project at first. My gut reaction is, I really don't like curated fake NES era graphics. It's what they did with the new River City Ransom/Kunnio games, where they have the NES sprites but then the...

Re: Arc System Works Gets Rights To Double Dragon/Technos

Oh man, yeah a Double Dragon game in that style would blow my mind. Closest we've gotten I think was the Game Boy Advance game Gekido, as far as anime-ish side scroller beatemup. (Then again I liked PS1 Gekido and Fighting Force, polygon 3d wise) I'm actually a fan of Neo Geo Double Dragon 1995, but...

Re: New Double Dragon Video

Haha loved this video. Probably my fave youtube review of the original. Yeah it's crazy how much slow down was in the original. Final Fight was only what, 2 years later and it felt light years ahead as far as moves/design/fluidity. But there is a funky magic to the clunkyness of DD. To this day I di...

What Was The Point Of The 1993 Cartoon/Toy/Game?

Not sure if this has been addressed before, but I never understood the point of the 1993 Double Dragon cartoon series, Tyco figure line and "Double Dragon 5" fighting game based on the series. They use the 1987 logo, they call the main characters Billy and Jimmy Lee, but that's about the o...
