    I loved the double dragon on gba. I wanted to like the one on xbox live with it's hd ness and all, but it fell flat after playing the far superior gba version. I'd rather have a homage than an hd-ified carbon copy.

    Wow, I just bought the GBA remake last week, too (which is awesome!).   That screenshot doesn't look quite like what I was expecting from WayForward, though.  Hopefully it plays well, or at least better than the coat-of-paint-on-a-mame-rom we got in 2007 :)

    Wait, wait, wait, wait.

    The real story here should be that Majesco still exists....apparently

    I will give any Wayforward title a shot. I haven't hated a single one yet, so I guess I am looking forward to this.

    Hope they can find a.... 'way forward" for the Double Dragon series in the current era of gaming that works.

    Eh? Anyone? ;)

    I am down for everything WayForward does. I didn't even give a shit about BloodRayne before their game came out.

    Just have some really good 2D art and some really good 2D animations, and I'll be good.

    I wish it was in 2D, but that does look promising.

    Graphics look bland and outdated. And why would you want to reboot the series? Why not just a sequel or a remake of the original? Idiots.

    Earlier I bitched about this not being Streets of Rage. But Wayforward coupled with a Big Trouble in Little China reference set me straight.

    Every time something Double Dragon related is announced, I cross my fingers and hope that perhaps it'll be based on the 90's cartoon:

    No Caption Provided

    Once again, I am disappointed.

    I spent as many quarters on the old Double Dragon arcade machines as the next guy, but that screenshot does not look enticing to me. I'm hoping it's just a mockup at this stage, with plenty of time for refinement.

    I always wondered why she just stands there in the road and takes that punch to the gut.

    Oh the amount of time I spent with DD on the Master System back in the day... now that was a game. Best part? The final boss. You know why he's the boss? Cause he is the only guy in the whole damn game that has a gun. Best part also applies to the music. And Abobo... who we always called Mr T. Except the green one... we called him the Jolly Green Giant. Oh the 80's...

    The graphics don't look great but i'm willing to forgive that if it plays right. The problem with side scrolling fighting games is the pace doesn't feel quite right anymore. Even going back to playing more recent classics like streets of rage, modern games just play a lot faster. I think its the call of duty effect.

    I don't really want to hit the same guy 50 times to kill him, instead there should be 50 guys you need to hit once and time perfectly. Thats what it takes to feel like a badass in a video game now. Precision and speed.

    Loved super DD on my SNES all those years ago. A surprising amount of depth for a beat em up. Interested to see how this one turns out.

    I like the visual style they're going for, but if all this is is a prettied up version of the same old game, it won't be enough to lure me in. I think it'd be great if they found a way to refresh the game play, similarly to how they revamped Pac-Man when they came out with Pac-Man CE DX.

    But maybe that's just the neon in me talking.

    Could be great. I loved the remake of part one on GBA. If they can top that I'm all for it, but seriously where the hell is my Streets of Rage remake/sequel!?

    That game looks like it's in alpha, the graphics look unpolished and generic, though it's Wayforward so I'm remaining optimistic :P
