Review: Double Dragon Neon

When I was a kid I remember going to a local store and dropping quarters anytime I could, to play Double Dragon.  It was pretty much the quintessential beat-em up genre game of the 80’s  Like any great 80’s game, they made a horrible 90’s movie loosely based on it.

Want a free dozen Krispy Kreme donuts on 9/19/2012?!

Who doesn’t!?
I’m going to start by saying Nerd-Base.com is not, whatsoever endorsed by Krispy Kreme (seriously though, that would be rad…one day the site will be big enough…maybe). Also, I am not a fan of the pirate fad. What self-respecting geek doesn’t love tasty junk food and coffee? Anyway, I do love their donuts and signed up for the mailing list because they often have fun specials like this. This is seriously pretty ridiculous and I just had to share.

Seriously. That’s kind of awesome.

So, because I find this so amusing, if any of you decide to go the full-blown pirate route, and go to a Krispy Kreme all dressed up, send me pictures and I’ll post it on the site and link to your blog/twitter/ect just because that’s kind of awesome.

Have fun!!

Other writers and people in the industry would sing the praises of this Eisner nominated comic.  It got to the point where I felt I couldn’t read an article about Brian Michael Bendis without Alias being brought up.
Recently I decided to see what all the fuss was about.   Continue reading
