Jett, Mat, Jon, and I are back with a brand new episode of Boss Rush. If you weren’t able to tune in to the live broadcast, check out the entire show below!
Since I started playing video games on the NES there have been side-scrolling beat-em ups. My beginnings were with the Double Dragon series on the NES, which then evolved into the Genesis classics Golden Axe I and II. The love affair took off from there, with every generation producing unique and worthwhile entries in the genre. Though there has been a decline with the recent consoles, a spare brawler rises out of the ashes of nostalgia and captures my heart all over again. The following games aren’t in any sort of order. They’re all just games that are entirely worth your time.
Multiplayer usually plays second fiddle to character progression and storyline in RPGs. Games like Castle Crashers and Dungeon Defenders are the exception to the rule, offering a solid RPG experience while giving players mountains of replayability with friends. These multiplayer romps are few and far between, and the ones worth your time even less so. Put together the addictiveness of a good co-op RPG with breathtaking visuals and a deep leveling and combat system and you have the trimmings for the next great action RPG.
