Double Dragon punches its way onto Virtual Console

We can't even pretend that we're really excited about this week's Virtual Console release, Double Dragon, or that we didn't play it a year ago in a sexy high-res remake on XBLA for the exact same price (500 points/$5). We love us some side-scrolling and punching, but even we have limits. But maybe...

Castle Crashers GDC '07 impressions

Castle Crashers is a chaotic storm of spinning swords, overly aggressive primary colors and the occasional (but never displeasing) decapitation -- which is why we like it. Though the GDC demo boasts only a few notable changes from previous iterations, it still warrants a look. A long and loving look...

Video: Double Dragon in action

While we know Alien Hominid HD is coming to Arcade this week, barring some freak weather storm, so we get the opportunity to look forward to future titles, or just Worms.
