I’m sure many of us remember those Saturday Afternoon Kung-fu flicks. It’s difficult to look at films like Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon, Dance of the Drunk Mantis, and Five FIngers of Death and not see the inspiration for modern day fighters such as Tekken and Mortal Kombat. Hell, look at Fei Long and all the other Bruce Lee look-alikes you see in various fighters. Kings of Kung Fu and Shaolin vs Wu-Tang is a pair of fighters from jae Lee productions that pay tribute to these old movies. For a pair of independently developed fighting games, these aren’t half bad. [Read the rest of this entry…]

Injustice 2 is hitting stores May 16 of this year. Today Injustice released a trailer going into more depth about the games story.

Four Horsemen Studios has teased their fans with a video letting us know about a Kickstarter campaign for the next offering of Mythic Legions action figures. The Kickstarter is slated to start January 27th, 2017, titled Mythic Legions 2.0: Advent of Decay.
This Kickstarter will likely feature many of the figures we saw at SDCC 2016. That display can be seen below in a photo from ToyArk’s coverage. Notably, most of the figures in this display are female, which should help supplement the current all male line-up.
In addition, one of the Horsemen posted a picture on Facebook showing off the Mythic Legions Trolls in packaging next to a normal size figure. The Trolls are in their warehouse and being prepped for shipment.

Vlambeer’s (Super Crate Box, Luftrausers) 2013 mobile fishing game, which is an enhanced version of the company’s flash browser game Radical Fishing, is perhaps more famous for the developer’s battle with the developer of a cloned game. To make a long story short, shortly after beginning work on a mobile version, developer Gamenauts released Ninja Fishing, an game that had a similar style of play. The game became an instant success, and this discouraged the developers to a point where they temporarily scrapped the project. However, after winning awards for their game Super Crate Box, the team decided to scrap everything and rebuild Ridiculous Fishing. Thankfully the game was a success, and is one of the best games available on mobile platforms. [Read the rest of this entry…]
Double Dragon used to be one of gaming’s biggest franchises during the Nintendo era. It spawned a movie, comic book, an action figure line, and animated series. However, since its heyday, it’s been outsourced to different companies for re-releases and remakes. A few years ago we got the all new game Double Dragon Neon from Majesco/Wayforward which was fairly well received. However, Arc Systems Works (Blazblue, Guilty Gear) now holds the rights to the franchise, and next month they’re releasing Double Dragon 4 for PS4 and Windows 10. This game’s direction looks like it’s inspired by the NES games rather than the arcade originals, as the sprites and backgrounds will have an 8-bit look, similar to Mega Man 9 and 10. The game will feature single player and co-op modes as well as Japanese text. Old school fans are gonna wanna check this out when it hits on January 30.
