    I picked up Double Dragon IV for the Switch last week and have put several hours into it since. Amazingly fun game and I don't get the general distain for it by most people. I don't know what disappointed people were expecting, they went for a NES-style DDII sequel and delivered above and beyond exactly that. It has quite a few levels, an endless survival mode, modern or retro soundtrack, and the ability to play any mode in the game with every single fucking character. I can throw $7 in the garbage and not miss it. I guarantee if they shoehorned this into a real NES cart and charged 7 bucks for it people would shit and rub it in their hair.

    In perspective it costs like $1 more than NES Double Dragon II sells for on any Virtual Console platform, and to me delivers a hell of a lot more than the $30 3DS River City sequels.

    I agree it's a very good game. Just picked it up for PS4. Graphics wise it did make me balk at getting it right away, but the controls feel amazing for a NES style game. Dunno if it's better then the overclocked Super Double Dragon or Gameboy Advance Double Dragon, but it's up there.

    Thor: God of Thunder on the NDS. There's a LOT of air juggling combo potential for a beat-em-up, which I like, since Thor has a pop-up uppercut and he can jump two screens high and throw his hammer in any direction. I only finished the first two chapters, but I'm digging it so far. You can find and equip a variety of runes too, my favorite thus far is the one you get early on that adds a shockwave effect, around Thor, when you throw the hammer, which is great for clearing crowds and wrecks the bosses' shit pretty good too if you toss Mjolnir at close range.

    Been jamming on Caddilacs and Dinosaurs. Having trouble with some of the combos. Can someone chime in on this Mustapha combo?
    May not post properly but its around the 1:36 mark where he starts a punch combo into a throw into a flip kick.

    They're just doing a combo with a backwards throw ender (down) and cancelling the throw animation with up+ attack. It just takes a little practice timing it. But everyone knows, the real way to play mustapha is dropkick, dropkick, dropkick.

    Just like playing Hannah is all about that knee ... People who have seen me play eventually have to leave the room, because Hannah's "Haaaa!" accompanying the knee attack gets too annoying. You can combo her rolling attack, just like Mustafa's flip kick, but it's too weak, and leaves you open to opponent's attacks during the roll.

    I finally got the mechanic down, the timing is tricky. When I started playing it like a SF Guile flash kick it became much easier.

    Any tips on the boss of the garage stage? He destroys me each time, similar to how I always get kicked in the teeth by Rolento in Final Fight.

    Well, I've done like only 3 runs of C&D in about 2 years, but my strat is pretty much the same as the one linked in the michaelpf08 video. Uzi + drop kicks + trying to anticipate the boss's dashing slash by comboing him instead of drop kicking.

    Snabbed Raging Justice for the Switch and put a little time in it, went in with low expectations and it seems to be alright so far. I expected something along the lines of a 360 indie title like Streets of Fury or Burning Fists of Rage so I was happy to find a halfway decent playing game.

    Leaderboards for both the regular game and survival mode give it some replay value. I don't really care too much for having a dedicated grapple button in 2D beat 'em ups and having that be the method to pick up weapons is not something I'm a fan of (at least the regular items automatically pick up).

    My biggest complaint is the art style. The devs really stroked themselves over it but I've never been a fan of prerendered 3D sprites. The character models are absolutely hideous, they look like some ugly joke bullshit from 15 years ago. Immediately reminded me of State of Emergency, 187: Ride or Die, or Final Fight Streetwise.

    So far it looks like it will be worth spending some time with but if they would have opted for regular spritework instead of looking like a Flash game it would've been much more appealing.

    The boss fights are so tedious. They have such short periods when they actually can take damage and they call so damn many adds. I like the basic minute-to-minute, but the bosses grind the game to a slog.

    Finally beat Madworld last night.
    It's only taken me seven years.
    But I stuck to it and prevailed.
    This game is so lop sided same as with many games by Platinum. If it had normal joypad controls, better camera, and slightly less stiff animation it would be perfect. Character design is fantastic, best 3d fighting game along with Die Hard Arcade.
    IggyP rules ok

    Took me 31 years but in Double Dragon I just now noticed you can hold and release the kick button to roll barrels across the screen at enemies.

    You should try God Hand.

    Bought Double Dragon Neon while its on sale. Never played it even though I love the DD series. I think the negativity at time of release made me not play it.... I gotta say, its fairly OK, deeper than it looks on the surface with some nice combo setups.
