If you go on a retro-gaming kick . . . emulators or real-deal . . .

When you get to the NES, look into securing yourself this game.

River City Ransom beats the pants off of Double Dragon.

River City Ransom, Nintendo 8-bit Entertainment System.

Here's a map link I found. It details the whole set of levels, and it comes with a shopping list.

If you're completely into realistic fighters, then obviously you'll be disappointed, but you knew that. Few games on the NES were figthers which allowed you to pump-up your guys.

Few fighters were as good as this one.

It looks like him to me as well. I thought that as a kid, too.

I'd stare at it, and I'd be like,

"Shit, this is just like Emilio Estevez from Men at Work. It looks like him! Man."

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks this.

that game rocks. They are redoing it on GBA, i cant wait to get it. I'd even go for a copy of the NES one, but its like 20 bucks if i can find one.

Unless it's a non-opened copy, it's not a collector's item. It should be waaaaaaaaaaaaaay cheaper than 20 bucks for a non-rare NES cart . . .

I'd like to see them re-do that format in a 20-something "Rated MA Mature: Read: Nekkid and Violent" version for the Xbox and the 'adult' platforms.

Not too many NES games has a nekkid guy's butt in a shower scene, small sprite-frames or no. They beat out "NYPD Blue" by a good number of years. They were the jet-set trend-setters, lol.

Seriously, they could make a huge following by taking the RPG and Action-Fight parts of the game and doing it up with bump-mapped characters and a much better new-millenium feel.

I really like your bio gif...i was just watching "enter the dragon" at work the other day! I just bought 10 Sonny Chiba movies for like $20...it has "street fighter" on it which ive heard was bloody brutal! NES emulators are heavenly, they bring me back to the happy feelings of my childhood!

Thanks! A friend made that for me.

Growing up in Detroit, we had enough films to pass the time. Bruce Lee was always my favorite. In terms of on-camera speed, controlled rage, there's nothing like him.

I have two things I'd like to do with films, off the top of my head:

1) Cut-together the Evil Dead series into one long film

2) Burn just the chapter of Game of Death where Lee fights K.A. Jabbar. "Lo vs. Hakim."

God, I just looked up that film.

User comments, first line: "This was the very first Bruce Lee film I ever saw!"

What a shame, lol.

Reply to:

1) yes...i loved Evil Dead 1 but 2 was a number 1 all over again...that needs to just be put together as one!
And Army of Darkness could be added too!

2) HAHAHHAA, every movie needs it's "sports-stars attempting to act and think they're actually doing good at it" characters! I just wish, hope, and pray Sammy Sosa doesn't get into the biz (he already tried with commercials...let's just say i would have watched 3 hours of those public access demon healing church speakers rather than having to watch that commercial with him in it AGAIN)!
