In a perfect world, I would be writing a glowing review about the new Predator movie that’s out this week. But we’re in this timeline, and the actual film is a half-assed attempt at capturing the nostalgia and action beats of the first two Predator films.
Happy 35th anniversary, Mario!
The Super Mario titles from Nintendo are arguably the most influential and iconic games around. Anyone who tells you otherwise is probably lying through their teeth.
Without the mind of Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto at the helm of these mothership games, there wouldn’t be a Nintendo at all in the late 80s and the 90s. In fact, Nintendo and Mario were the sole saviours of the video game industry; countless retrospectives have mentioned this, so there’s no history lesson here.
Rejoice, beat-em-up fans of 90s video games based after The Warriors! Streets of Rage is making a comeback with a fourth instalment (fifth if we count the equally-awesome Streets of Rage Remake fan game). It’s going to be created by DotEmu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games (of Streets of Fury fame).
It’s bearable, to say the least. Sorry.
Do you love to thrown people down from the sky to the ground? Do you relish in picking up fools and tossing them down and let gravity sort out their bones and skulls?
If you answered “no” to both questions, what’s wrong with you?
Fine, there are safer ways to dispose of the competition: fireballs, guns, the occasional bowling ball. But there’s a lot more reward in blazing through the opposition, scooping them up, and then tossing them down in style and with full force like the ragdolls they are.
In our very first Last King Decree feature -where we royally state cool awesome things which are totally facts – we present thee with THE definitive top 20 grapples and throw moves in video game history.
