You're probably going to forget about Double Dragon: Neon

[Update: My mistake, I read the date wrong in the press release. Double Dragon: Neon is actually coming out in September. Far better timing than the blockbuster month of November, with the exception of Borderlands 2 and Kirby...

NBA Baller Beats: A lesson in humiliation photo
NBA Baller Beats: A lesson in humiliation
by Tara Long

Despite what my vampiric complexion and freakishly strong arms would have you believe, I'm no sportswoman. In fact, as this video clearly demonstrates, I can barely dribble a basketball much less dribble one on beat with four other moves thrown in, all while looking up at a screen. What am I, a wizard?!

Well turns out I'm not a wizard, just a woman with very little shame. I'm also never one to turn down a humiliating experience, so I threw what remaining dignity I had aside after this year's E3 and stepped on the court for some quality NBA Baller Beats time. My conclusion? Well... it's not terrible. Watch the video to hear my impressions!

NBA Baller Beats a grim portent for home furnishings

Majesco is making an NBA licensed game for Kinect called NBA Baller Beats which uses a real ball. Above is a teaser narrated by rapper Common which promises a gameplay demonstration this June at E3.  I have just one question: Did nobody at Majesco have a mother to tell them not to bounce a ball in the house?

PAX: Double Dragon: Neon is Double Dragon-y photo
PAX: Double Dragon: Neon is Double Dragon-y

As you may have heard, Double Dragon: Neon by WayForward is being showcased on the PAX show floor. Now, Double Dragon II on the NES may just be my favorite co-op brawler of all time. I have a lot of good memories of my dad and I whippin' the Shadow Master in that epic final battle. Of course, checking out Neon was in my PAX plans.

I can honestly say that it plays like a Double Dragon, and that can be a good or bad thing depending on how hard you get playing a really, really, really bare-bones brawler pulled straight from the 80s.

Tara Long's Kinect Fitness CHALLENGE! photo
Tara Long's Kinect Fitness CHALLENGE!
by Tara Long

As co-host of The Destructoid Show, I consider it my prerogative - nay, my mission - to embarrass myself on a near daily basis. It's not something I typically take issue with, as long as I can say that at the end of the day, it was for journalism. Needless to say, when I pitched the idea of a Kinect-themed fitness segment to our producer, I was immediately met with an incredulous, "Are you sure you want to do that? People are going to see this, you know."

So, after some heavy reconsideration and one too many gin and tonics, I decided to go for it. Who needs a future career in politics anyway, right?

Check out the video above for my run-down of some of Kinect's top fitness games, including Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012, UFC Personal Trainer, Zumba Fitness Rush, and more!

Nano Assault: Infections are sexy now

If I had known that fighting viruses was as fun and gorgeous as Nano Assault makes it seem, I'd almost certainly have studied medicine at university instead of drinking. Thankfully, you don't need a medical degree and a massi...

Review: BloodRayne: Betrayal photo
Review: BloodRayne: Betrayal
by Jim Sterling

Very few people can claim to love BloodRayne as a franchise, and there's a reason for that. The original titles were critically derided, the series of Uwe Boll movies are particularly grotesque, and the comic books are obscure as Hell. However, when someone's looking for fans of BloodRayne, they need look no further than myself. 

So, when news of a new BloodRayne game dropped, I was beyond excited. The fact that it appeared to be taking its cues from Castlevania was an added bonus, and the stage was set for a game that would finally make BloodRayne a respectable series as opposed to an eternally guilty pleasure. 

However, this game's name -- Betrayal -- is stunningly appropriate, because I feel like I've been stabbed in the back.
