Quote from: SunGodPortal on February 07, 2017, 04:42:46 AMYeah, screw Double Dragon III as well.
Quote from: Spooniest on February 07, 2017, 04:47:07 AMDouble Dragon 1 was the first NES cartridge I ever owned, bought for me by my mom when I was 9 (RIP Mom). I was thrilled. Me and my kid brother had played it in arcades for years, and I booted it up...oh. It's only one player. Hm.
Quote from: SunGodPortal on February 07, 2017, 04:58:57 AMI always wondered what was so "double" about a one player game. A more fitting title would have been Alternating Dragons. Or Double If You Play the VS Mode Dragon.
Quote from: Spooniest on February 07, 2017, 04:33:04 AMReally, it's telling that Mega Man 2 is a much more balanced game. It's not easy, but it's a walk in the park compared to the first game.

QuoteIt's like the AVGN says, that game is like what would happen in real life if you decided to take on that many guys. You'd get your ass handed to you.

Quote from: Spooniest on February 07, 2017, 05:20:59 AMIn hindsight, many video game titles could have worked as extremely hardcore porn movie titles.
Quote from: Bregalad on February 07, 2017, 07:15:26 AMThe worst part about Double Dragon III is that the game itself would probably be totally awesome if only it had more lives and more continues.
Quote from: SunGodPortal on February 07, 2017, 06:56:24 PMThe same could be said for "the hardest game you've ever played".
Quote from: Gi Nattak on February 08, 2017, 03:45:25 PMA classic game that was the hardest I ever played... I'll say NES Batman. And NES TMNT 1.
Quote from: Bregalad on February 07, 2017, 07:15:26 AMIt would be awesome if a game was titled "alternating dragons". I am not 100% sure but I suspect they wanted to have 2 player mode but couldn't due to time restrictions for development.
Quote from: Synnae on February 08, 2017, 08:58:50 PMThe hardest one? Tough question. But I'd say The Combatribes (arcade) is among them. It's also by Technos. Yes, the same creators of Double Dragon and River City Ransom.It's also a beat 'em up. There are 6 levels total, and you start the game with 150 hit points. Thing is, you carry on that HP through the ENTIRE game. There are no means to regenerate it, and clearing a level doesn't heal you either - you begin the next one with the same amount you had after finishing the last. Enemies are pretty aggressive and it's really hard to avoid getting countered when you're hitting them, and nearly impossible against bosses. Plus, on the last level you have to beat ALL previous bosses in a boss rush. You only have 500 seconds to do that, and they have quite a bit of HP - making it also a battle against time. Heck, the final boss at the end is brutal enough...So yeah, It's a harsh game. Even for arcade standards. There's a video of someone beating it on YouTube, but they save-state'd their way through (the final level was cleared with only 11 seconds remaining, btw). I don't think it's humanly possible to beat this with 1 coin legit.
Quote from: Azkadellia on February 08, 2017, 09:36:02 PMIt's possible. It just takes hours and hours of practice. I watch people on Twitch practice arcade games to 1CC them all the time.
Quote from: SleepyFist on February 07, 2017, 05:41:07 PMI was gonna, but I decided not to, really I Wanna be the Guy the Movie the game is more fair than F-Zero X at least you don't have to literally fool the AI into letting you win, I made it halfway through IWBTG which is more than I can say for F-Zero.
Quote from: MegaManJuno on February 09, 2017, 11:49:32 AMI don't recall having too many issues with X. GX though... that was a different story.
