Review of Double Dragon on the Wii Virtual Console

Double Dragon was first released by Tatio as an arcade game over twenty years ago. While the game has been ported to numerous systems (including mobile phones), it is the port for the original 8-bit Nintendo that most 80’s gamers will remember.

At its heart, Double Dragon is a simple side-scrolling beat-em up game. You play as Billy, a martial arts master. Your girlfriend has been captured by a gang that controls much of the city. In order to free your girlfriend you must kick, punch and bash your way through legions of enemies for a final show down with the Shadow Boss – leader of the Black Warriors. While the plot has been explored in great depth in future games, a (somewhat terrible) movie, and a (much better) cartoon series, it plays little role in the first game.

Game Play

If you have never played Double Dragon, the first fight screens may leave you wondering what all the hype is about. Keep playing. While you will initially be armed only with your fists and a simple kick, things quickly grow more interesting as you encounter armed enemies.

You will find that once you disarm an enemy, you will be able pickup their weapon and use it against them. There is something extremely satisfying about bashing your opponents with their own weapons.

The game also does a good job of incorporating the environment into the battles. You will commonly encounter items that can be thrown or use the environment its self to defeat your foes. One of the best examples of this occurs early in the first boss battle.

The room in which you encounter the boss contains a conveyor belt that drops anything placed on it into oblivion. With a little effort, you can maneuver the boss onto the belt and watch him plunge to his doom. In addition to environmental hazards and weapons, latter stages feature some basic platform jumping to keep things fresh and interesting.

The game also features a level based skill building system not found in the original arcade version. As you progress, you will collect heart points that will unlock new moves. Adding new game elements to make up for graphical deficiencies of a port was a common practice in the 8-bit era, and it works well in this title.

In addition to the single player mode, the game offers a couple of two player modes as well. Sadly, this does not mean co-op play. In the primary mode of play, players take turns controlling the same character. So when you use an FPS Tracker, you will see your standing in the game in the overall setting.  The other option is to brawl with each other or against the computer. These parts of the game have a tack-ed on feel and do little to add value.

Graphics/Sound

For its day, Double Dragon features solid graphics and sound. Sprite animation is severely limited by the 8-bit hardware, but it is still well done. Enemy and backdrop designs are creative and varied. The sound effects and music are solid and catchy. Even it was first released, the graphics where not what wowed gamers.

The Verdict

Double Dragon for the NES has aged very well. The simple addictive game play, combined with solid controls and varied challenges are still fun. Whether you grew up playing it, or have some how missed out, Double Dragon on the Wii Virtual Console is well worth the 500 Wii point asking price.

Improve Your Love Life with Feng Shui

Those of us who find our love life fizzling out may be lost as to where to turn to rekindle the passion and love they once had in their relationship. But some people have found hope for their love life through the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui.

Many Feng Shui followers believe strongly that placing things in the right space affects the type of energy you have and can improve your quality of life; including your love life.

The art of Feng Shui involves seeking out the ‘power spots’ throughout your home. Once these power spots are discovered, Feng Shui art involves activating these power spots so that love and relationship issues in your home can become strong and healthy. With Feng Shui you can actually turn up the volume on your love life by merely placing furnishings in the right spots.

There are experts that study Feng Shui in depth, and the art is considered to be intricate, and to fully grasp the concept of Feng Shui would require some dedicated study. But one of the basic theories of Feng Shui is that the power spots, known as ‘Kun Gua’ are located in the southwest side of your home. So the ideal spot for your bedroom would be in the southwest side.

You can also discover one of your home’s power spots by facing your home, coming into the entrance and identifying the room to the right and the room to the back of your home; this includes those rooms on all of the floors of your home. These rooms are also considered to be power spots or ‘Kun Gua’.

But the good news is that even if your bedroom is not facing the Southwest or is in the back right hand corner of your home, there are things you can do to increase your Feng Shui energy. It is important, according to Feng Shui art, that the bedroom be free of clutter. The room should also have good lighting and be spacious. Once you set the stage, with these minor changes, you will be able to add your Feng Shui objects of love.

The most important objects you could have to encourage love and affection in the bedroom are Chinese symbols of love or double happiness. Feng Shui artists also believe that red and pink are the strongest colours for promoting love and affection. If your walls are not bright red you might consider adding some pink or red candles to the room so that you can enhance some love power spots.

Although the idea of Feng Shui may seem a little odd, the subtle changes you might choose to make to your bedroom are inexpensive, they don’t take too much time or energy, and they may actually in fact, have a positive affect on your love life.

The house projects are always upvc windows, so similarly when it comes to love you would be needing that certain someone to fulfill the emptiness in your life.

Splenda is the New Sugar

I started using Splenda about one year and ten months ago. I’ve never looked back. There is no reason for me to believe that Splenda is not the new sugar; even if everybody doesn’t know it yet this sugar has proven itself as  CoolSculpting for the inner thighs would be a great choice to prevent your thighs from any type of skin disorder. Companies are putting Splenda in everything (even shit that already has real sugar). The Splenda motto is something like “made from sugar, so it tastes like sugar”. Well, I don’t know what that fucking means. Their motto should just be “Spenda, the boom-batty”. Yeah, I don’t know what that means either, but that’s how I feel when I take in a Splenda saturated product.

One of the biggest differences between Splenda and sugar is the mix-in factor. No matter how hard you stir (and I mean you can stir until half of the fucking liquid has swirled out of the cup), sugar always settles at the bottom. So, let’s say you’re a coffee drinker. You drop in your two or three scoops of sugar, stir and enjoy. Only, that’s not what actually happens.

What you ostensibly end up with every time you drink sugared coffee is 90% of a beverage that you’ve forced yourself to drink because it’s not sweet enough and 10% (the bottom) of a super sweet, sludge-like substance that tastes like liquid pixie stick.

Yeah, you should have used Splenda. Splenda doesn’t even need to be stirred. Just drop that shit in and it seems to disperse on its own; it’s magical. If sugar is a land mine than Splenda is fucking napalm.

I kind of feel weird championing Splenda like this; just as I feel strange using it public. Whenever I’m at Wawa, I look around before I put six Splenda’s into my 20oz. cup of chocolate macadamia coffee. Splenda (and any so-called diet products, for that matter) have a girlish connotation; I’m not sure why this is. All I know is that when I see some hard construction worker dude get a black coffee, I feel inferior as I pour fat free French vanilla creamer into my cup. I’ve actually stopped going to Dunkin Donuts because I can’t bear to order my drink in front of a line of customers. Clearly, I have issues.

But this isn’t about me; it’s about Splenda. Other than the noted female overtones, Splenda fucking rocks. I find myself putting it on everything (even hot dogs). And you want to know what the best thing about Splenda is? It’s Free!

Well, it’s not free as in “Splenda is legally free”. I mean, Splenda doesn’t grow on trees or anything like that. But it’s free alright.

Just walk into your local Wawa or 7 Eleven or Quickcheck; any place that sells coffee will do. Go over to the fixin’s bar and stuff 30 to 50 Splenda’s in your pocket. If you’re like me, that’s at least a week’s supply. Sure, this is “illegal”. But it’s one of those non-crimes; because, it’s like, those little packets are free anyway. If anybody gives you any crap, just say you like your coffee really, really sweet. The worst thing that’s going to happen is some overweight manager is going to ban you for life (no problem, just find another convenience store).

It’s worth it; for Splenda it’s definitely worth it. Besides, that shit is expensive in the grocery store. Fuck that shit, you hear? Gimme some Splenda!
