The Wizard? Double Dragon? These s...

Re: Hot Topic - Best Double Dragon arcade game

When my brother & I hired DD3 from our local video store for my NES back in the early 90's what followed (after a 15minute BMX ride home) was the best co-op experience we'd ever had on any computer or console up until that point. Good Times :)

I can pretty much single credit Street Fighter 2 Arcade on most days, but when it comes to SuperSF2 it just kills me. Does anyone know if the...

There is a chunk of arcade stuff in Retro Gamer but i'm surprised theres not more, specially when surely 99% of us used to play on the classic arcades in our youth. Would much r...
