Shantae and the Pirate's Curse delayed for a 'couple more months'

Remember when we reported that Shantae and the Pirate's Curse for the 3DS was "almost done?" Well it appears as if it's not really all that nearly done, as WayForward has further delayed the game for a few more months. WayForward has its hands full with this and Half-Genie Hero, the latter of which has no release in sight. WayForward [Twitter via Nintendo Life]

Review: Double Dragon: Neon photo
Review: Double Dragon: Neon
by Patrick Hancock

Beat-’em-ups are quite the strange genre to me. I grew playing many of them: Simpsons, X-Men, and Turtles in Time in the arcades were my jam. In fact, I’d say they are still my jam. That said, it’s easy to recognize their faults, which are really faults of the genre as a whole, even if those faults seem to melt away when playing with some buddies. Lining up attacks can be a chore and they’re generally painfully simplistic when it comes to actual gameplay.

Double Dragon: Neon is a carefully crafted love-letter to a genre and a time period. It is an '80s beat-'em-up through and through, but with one caveat: it has some of the best gameplay to ever grace the genre.

Double Dragon: Neon now available on Steam photo
Double Dragon: Neon now available on Steam
by Conrad Zimmerman

The zaniest adventure of Billy and Jimmy Lee is available for PC players today, as Double Dragon: Neon arrives on Steam. You may now purchase it for the perfectly reasonable sum of $9.99.

Setting aside all of the awesome music, goofy plot line, and absurd villains, it's still my favorite Double Dragon game. There's a satisfying technical depth to be found in the combat and the addition of the game's collectible progression system has kept me coming back over and over. If you're into brawlers and haven't played this yet for some inexplicable reason, you should probably get to it.

Dead or Alive, Cubone and panty sniffing w/ Cristina Vee photo
Dead or Alive, Cubone and panty sniffing w/ Cristina Vee
by Jonathan Holmes

Last Sunday on Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) we were treated to company of Cristina Vee, voice actress for League of Legends, BlazBlue, Tekken: Blood Vengence, Skullgirls, Pokemon Origins and many other games and animated films. She is utterly charming, almost to the point of inducing speechlessness.

On one hand you have her compelling underdog story -- learning to overcome shyness through discovering anime and its surrounding fan community,  getting discovered online for singing anime theme songs, getting her first job in the industry as a teenager, and finally making it to the success she's found today. On the other hand, you have her personality -- a mix of wit, shyness, and slightly unhinged creativity. Over the course of the show she became Pokemon Cubone, sang about Rainicorns, and auditioned with me for the role of Marie Rose, the new Dead or Alive fighter. I made up lines for her to read on the spot about bunk beds and Burger King for her to read in-character. Her performance was flawless. Tecmo Koei would do well to sign her for the roll ASAP. 

We also talked about what it's like to be typecast, the growing attention that games are getting from Hollywood actors, what its like to to do voice acting for perverts and sex secenes, and so much more. Thanks again to Cristina for appearing on the show, and please tune in tomorrow at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we kick off Adult Swimbemer with Soundodger+'s Michael Molinari.

Review: Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon (3DS) photo
Review: Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon (3DS)
by Chris Carter

I remember my first episode of Adventure Time. It randomly came on the TV one day and I had no idea what it was -- but I couldn't stop watching. There was something about the show that kept my eyes glued to the screen, watching best pals Finn and Jake battle the "evil" Ice King to save princesses from all across the Land of Ooo.

Years later and I've seen every episode of the show, and I still can't predict what will happen on any given week, or what new endearing character I might meet. To me, that's the mark of something special.

Sadly, the new Adventure Time 3DS game is the opposite of everything the show stands for.

Review: Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-Bit Land
by Chris Carter

Regular Show is one of my favorite programs on TV right now. It took the simple Beavis and Butthead setup of two slackers getting through their day-to-day routine, and added a bit of '80s and retro sheen to it, alongside a cast of likeable characters.

Imagine my excitement when I found out that WayForward would be handling an old-school 3DS platformer called 8-Bit Land with the Regular Show IP, which is pretty much a perfect fit. After playing it however my excitement has been tempered considerably, but it still has a few tricks up its sleeve to offer the most hardcore of retro fans a good time.
