Review: Double Dragon (Wii U eShop / NES)

Double Dragon (Wii U eShop / NES)

Solo komodo

Double Dragon is notable for a whole host of reasons, among them that the NES version bears one of history's most misleading game titles by being a solo adventure with nary a dragon in sight. It also opens with an iconic, if anachronistic, bang — or, more specifically, a pow. A gangster brute socks a woman in the gut and carries her...

Mixing it up

During what is likely to be the final Nintendo Direct of 2013, there were a few surprise game announcements.

RUSH (Wii U eShop)

No need to block this one

The Wii U eShop is gradually building its library, but for the large part has been populated by relatively substantial games that cost a decent amount of change; while that's absolutely fine, this is a platform also suitable for inexpensive experiences either quick-fire or simple in nature. RUSH, like its Two Tribes...

Review: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

A link to perfection

It's no accident that when Nintendo decided to do a direct sequel to a Zelda title — well, as close to a direct sequel as the series is ever going to get — it chose The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past as its reference point. A Link Between Worlds is set some years after the events of the 1991 SNES classic, but it uses a...
