I have a pretty longstanding history with beat 'em up style games, and for the most part I have enjoyed the genre. Double Dragon still ranks as one of my all-time favorite arcade games, and I would guess I played through Double Dragons 1 & 2 on the NES several dozen times each. I am one of the lucky few who still has the arcade version of Double Dragon on my Xbox Live account as well. So it is safe to say I was more than a little excited when I read about Double Dragon: Neon several months ago, posting about it here at the time.
Like everyone and their mom yesterday and today, I have been pondering the various Wii U announcements and trying to figure out just what my thoughts on them and the system are. I have come away decidedly mixed at this point, but then I have been since the beginning I guess. I plan to get one more post up for the weekend by the end of the day (a review of a new game release), but I figured I'd hop on the Wii U conversational bandwagon real quick this morning.
It would seem like with me regularly working 55-65 hours a week over the last month, my dad visiting from Florida for a couple of weeks and the kids starting up on school again that I would be struggling to find time to play games, but that really has not been the case. I think what I'm sacrificing (other than sanity) is sleep as a result.
Kalypso media has released some good, ambitious games in the past. Sometimes however, their ambitious outstrip their resources I think. Dungeons was a title that I thought had a great premise, but a fairly poor execution as I said in my review. When I read about the 4X strategy title Legends of Pegasus, I immediately liked what they were trying to do - but I also was a bit worried that the game itself might come out a bit lacking in the end.
