I'm at least experienced in 4-5 of the games on the list. Sweet, random gaming paying off.

How do you get raptr to track your achievements? I downloaded the app and everything and still can't figure out how to get it to show my achievements, but it did say wait 3 hours after I clicked refresh something.

So, anyone try Double Dragon Neon? Its so...odd, that I actually kinda liked it.

If it ever hits 400 points I may pick it up.


Note that the game diverges a LOT after the demo levels. There's a lot more to it enemy variety-wise. Teleporting ninjas, mages, jetpack assholes (Imported from SoR!).

I WANT to hate this but I actually like it. The soundtrack is, as usual for all of Wayforward's games, great. Virt is better than that company deserves.

There's nothing from any Double Dragon beyond 2 in here, and even then only the sprites from 2 show up on the map screen. Else, it's Double Dragon as imagined by someone who beat only the first two levels of the original DD.

In fact, it isn't even really Double Dragon. This is Bloodrayne Betrayal transposed into brawler 2.5D, the mechanical style is almost identical. The freedom of a traditional brawler is gone. The stiff-as-hell dodge mechanics are there, with much more of the game relying on your ability to duck-dodge for a brief damage boost and stat grinding those stupid tapes.

That said, the gameplay works in ways Betrayal's half-baked level design could not support. I like it despite myself but I don't think it's a great example of a traditional beat-em-up, but it's not quite the half-breed Dishwasher is or Betrayal wanted to be...

It was a smooth ride.

Hmm, KungFu Strike gets much better when you unlock more combos and upgrades. Shame this happens way after you beat the game - to get new moves/ally's/upgrades you should replay the stages a lot of times. Strange design decision if you ask me. Most of the people would never bother to grind them out.
Got my first two S ranks. ^^ Pretty sure i can get few more after purchasing the next Chi upgrade (cost 20k o_O).

Good to hear people are enjoying Double Dragon Neon. I should finally redeem my code today.

Oh, and Fuck IGN. One of the worst gaming sites around!

edit :Anyone played Red Johnson's Chronicles? Is it decent?

I like it too, more than I thought I would. I thought Skullmageddon's voice was a little too cheesy but at the same time I like the goofball psuedo-retro vibe/presentation. The lack of online co-op sucks big time though as I feel like I'd enjoy punching faces more with another player.:boxing:

I'm really not feeling DD so far. The humor is wack and the gameplay feels clunky as hell. I only finished 2 levels before I fell alseep but I really hope it gets better.

No online co-op = no buy for Double Dragon.

The combat is also incredibly slow and clunky.

Double Dragon Advance is still easily the best in the series.

Yeah what is this trend a lot of XBLA's to ship with local only co-op? It's bullshit really..

Raptr: I had to change my gamertag there as I had changed it a while back and never logged into Raptr since. So I changed it and it reimported my achievements, I think correctly, but the play time is whacked. It says I only play Trials HD for 3 hours. That is not exactly right. LOL. Fortunately it got Trials Evo with a much higher number, and puts me as Dedicated. Now that stupid promotion needs to finally switch from someones bizarre definition of "soon", to "now".

I'm enjoying double dragon more than I thought I would. It's not perfect, but it has the right hooks for a modern beat em up. Only thing that I find jarring is the lack of grapple moves. That was a hugely satisfying part of the original games, and would have been an easy way to add some depth to the combat. Oh well, I'm looking forward to online coop. Also, this goes without saying, but the soundtrack is god tier.

Fire Pro Wrestling comes out next Friday. I can't believe that game is actually being released. I thought it had become vaporware.

I wrote it all out on the SlickDeals thread, but if you head over to account settings, under the Identities page you can force Raptr to refresh your 'cheevements & time logged. It gives you a message about possibly taking a couple hours, but sometimes its quicker.

I couldn't believe this either when I first read about it, I hope it plays well.

As to Double Dragon, I should have been more clear. While I do like the game more than I thought I would and am having a decent time with it, I wouldn't pay anything more than 400 (600 if you're a genre/80's/nostalgia fan). This is especially true when it doesn't have online co-op. I'm totally fine with playing it for free on 'that other console' though!;)

Double Dragon Advance doesn't have online co-op either. In fact, you have to have two GBAs, two copies of the game, and a link cable, all locally, to play multiplayer.

It does suck that Neon launched without online co-op, but at least it's coming, and in less than a year, unlike Scott Pilgrim.

I just looked into the Raptr Zuma Revenge reward where if you play it to Noob status on Xbox Live, you get the original for the PC. Went on to Amazon and saw the prerelease price for the disc version is $19.99, but it's only 800ms pts on Xbox Live. Strange.

Too bad it's not included in this PopCap sale as well.

EDIT: I suppose it also includes Bejeweled 3 and Feeding Frenzy 2, so it's actually cheaper than all 3 games at regular price.

It is too bad that it is not included in the Popcap sale, but if you just want it to get the free PC copy you can play the demo to raise your raptr level to newbie.

I didn't know The Walking Dead was getting a disc. Thanks for the heads up! I'll try to pick it up if it drops below $20, which these discs tend to.
