Video: Let’s Play Double Dragon (NES)

with 2 comments

By popular demand (and my own personal affinity toward playing games on a capture card), here’s the Let’s Play of Double Dragon on the NES.  I do complete the game but I cut my many attempts at Mission 4 for brevity.  If you guys prefer to uncut versions in the future, that’s fine but it’s going to be really repetitive.  This definitely demonstrates many gamers’ frustration with the blatantly unfair nature of the final mission.  Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments below.  More to come very soon!
