Double Dragon IV Review

Double Dragon IV perfectly replicates the “old school” look and feel of the series’ origins. It’s the latest throwback to the neon-tinged 1980’s, as game developers continually peruse the catalog of dormant franchises.

Trophy Whores 288 – Army Of T-Rex’s

That is a mouthful.  That’s what Tricky said.  I couldn’t resist.  Tricky loves Wendy’s chicken parmesan sandwiches.  Truly, to Tricky, it might as well be filet mignon.  Have you seen a man stick an entire sandwich in his mouth?  It isn’t for the faint of heart.  We can’t unhinge our jaws like snakes.  I’m surprised…

Trophy Whores 286 – Octagonal Kiwami
