Is this style of fighting game still made? eg. Streets of Rage, Double Dragon, Final Fight

Walk around exotic locales and beat everything up.

Mother Russia Bleeds is the most recent beat 'em up I can think of, but it wasn't very good.

Paprium, formerly known as Project Y is due for release in a few weeks for the Sega Genesis. It looks pricy on Watermelon Games' site, though.

I doubt it's worth anything. There are very few games that I've regret actually buying when on sale for cheap, but that is definitely the one I regret the most. It doesn't even run full speed. The battles are slow. It's chock full of memes. If they can't do an RPG, I'm not surprised if they can't do a beat em up either. The $70 is also nuts but it is on a cart for Genesis, so I'm not surprised they charged that much. Unholy Knight was like $50 on release, though now it's $35 on Amazon.

Vanillaware seems to be one of the only AA companies who still make 2D Beat Em Ups. They're making a mecha game at the moment. There was that Millia Wars DX eroge which was a beat em up. Though it was a shoot em up if you played as the Metal Slug character. Though it is a vore game just to warn you.

That precise style of game has pretty much faded over in favor of the general action platformer genre. I think of it as a natural evolution more than a disappearance.

Well, there's River City Ransom Underground, and the two new games for the series on the 3DS (Tokyo Rumble, and the Medieval themed one)

Also, you can check the OpenBOR engine forums, there's some crazy shit there, embed related

This looks nice and fun to play, gonna look into it. Thanks user.

There was a godawful "Double Dragon 4" that Arc System Works shat out a year or so back. 2D brawlers are pretty dead though. They either turned into character action, Souls clones, or Metroidvania games. I know they're basically a relic of the arcade age, but I still enjoy replaying Double Dragon or Streets of Rage once in a while.

He shows it off at 0:24 but you can use the Knife in a lot of tricky ways to move around during aerial combos, and launch enemies while you're in the air. Don't know why it hasn't caught on more, it's one of the better action games I've played in the last three or four years.

River City Randsome got remade. I haven't played it so I can't say if it's any good or not, but it's out there and might be worth a look. Came out in February, was a KikeStarter.

Luis Wilson

That's actually a sequel (sorta) to River City Ransom. They polished up the combat a bit, added some bosses that weren't just "really tough normal enemy," and gave you a lot more special moves.

Samuel Morgan

Streets of Rage Remake is still the best beat em up that has been released in many years.
I wish it had online.

If you want online, try Fightcade it has quite a few good beat em ups such as Battlecircuit, Alien Vs Predator, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs…

If you want one of the best beat em ups with online and 4 players, get D&D on steam. If you're really thirsty, the newest Gauntlet may fill you in that gap but it's by no means a beat em up although close to those classics.

Does Holla Forums not like Streets of Fury EX? To me it's the best beat'em up released in years yet I never see it mentioned even in fighting or beat'em up threads.

Guardians 2 is an awesome beat 'em up with combos and multiple characters

Demolish Fist is a noteworthy 3D beat 'em up

only one mention of Dragon's Crown
This thread can still be salvaged. Let's talk about Dragon's Crown. I made the mistake of playing Dwarf while my sister was in the room and now she's teen pregnant, so I'm trying to learn how to play literally any other character. Any anons in here know how the Fighter works, or either of the spellcasters? I generally play offline, so I'd like to avoid support-focused builds unless they're the kind that work with AI allies.

Sorceress is more support than Wizard, but her food conjuring spell is useful. Gamefaqs has a good breakdown of the skills. Are you on PS3?

William Butler
William Butler

I'm on PS3, though I'm not sure how current the old skill guides are–the last time I played, Elf and Amazon could stomp everything in the game without a problem, but there have been a few balance patches since then and I've heard that there were some shakeups. I'm used to spamming throws, flexes, and power smashes to get through most fights, so suddenly worrying about mana management and a lack of reliable hitstun are a jump for me.

Nathaniel Myers

That's intentional. The art style is a throwback to those 1990s arcade games with digitized sprites.
With default settings the game does go a bit overboard with chromatic aberration effects that I suppose try to mimic shitty arcade monitors, but these effects can be disabled in the options menu.
I love the gameplay and it has a great synth soundtrack.

Because it's not good, it's just ok with a really horrible netcode that makes it impossible to playcoop unless it's local.

Am i the only one that thinks that capcom should stop trying to make Fighting games with the Street Fighter cast and just make Beat'em ups with the cast with a more in-depth combat?

I would love to play a Beat'em up where Sakura and Karin go through the streets of some random city beating the crap out of gangsters or some shit, all the while using their signature specials, cancels and supers.

I dunno, maybe i'm a idiot, but i think it would be a cool idea.

Leo Reed

It's alright. I'd say it's a solid sequel to RCR. My main gripes with it are the character designs for the playable characters kinda suck except for some alt-costumes and the special move list kinda goes overboard. The focus on specials doesn't detract from the classic RCR formula, and there's online co-op. Worth a pirate, or see if you can snag it on sale.

No problem! Some 'chase this person' sections can be made easier with special moves that dash forwards, like the boxer's charge. You hit those guys once and you're gold.

I was really disappointed by Mother Russia Bleeds. It was a broken mess. Early on in the game, you need to escort an NPC to unlock a door for you. If he gets the shit kicked out of him, and you refuse to revive him, you can walk through the wall that the door is on that he has to unlock, but it doesn't move you forward. You see a little bit outside of the level as a result. A few levels on, there's a part where a guy has an AK behind a barrier and is shooting at you. If you die at this segment and continue, your character can't heal properly, and is stuck in the animation. If you die again after trying that heal animation, your character completely disappears next retry. I couldn't get passed this part because of this. Absolutely broken.

Dragon's crown would be a good beat em up but the rpg shit on top of is kind of gay, lest not forget that Little Witch Academia's tie-in game is a beat em up.

It's hardly basic. The enemies are a lot more reactive than Capcoms AIs and they have interesting skills like the bullrush.

You can emulate that on your PC now through RPCS3

River City Ransom Underground
I played it and its shit.
Dragons Crown is defiantly a beat'em up. The only drawback is the find loot/open chest/Rune gimmick with Right joystick pointer. It just feels award and slows down the otherwise great game.
I doubt my old GTX 750 can run RPCS3 very well. I have trouble emulating many PS2 games let alone a PS3 emulator.

Cooper Reyes
Cooper Reyes

I doubt my old GTX 750 can run RPCS3 very well
Actually RPCS3 isn't that heavy on GPUs for now, as long as it supports vulkan and your CPU isn't too shit (recent desktop i5) it should run acceptably and likely even fullspeed.
It's also probably one of the lighter games you can play on it.
Honestly give it a try, it's probably the only way you'll ever get to play that game again without a CFW PS3.

Robert Cruz
Robert Cruz

the GTX 750 has very lousy vulkan support unfortunately. Most games actually performs worse with Vulkan enabled. I'm afk so off the top of my head if I'm not mistaken my CPU is a AMD FX-6300 which I got for dirt cheep. I'm basically in PC limbo atm where its not so bad that I feel like dropping the money to upgrade but its not fast enough to confidently run demanding games. I am thinking about getting a GTX 1070 and just hopping my CPU doesn't cause too much bottle necking but I also sorta think I could hold out a few more years (playing some games on console if necessary) and just build a better machine from scratch. Its not that I can't afford upgrading, I'm just a cheapskate and have so many games that investing in an upgrade seems unnecessary. That said, I guess it couldn't hurt to give RPCS3 a try.

I agree about the rpg cruft in Dragon's Crown. My autism meant spending 30 minutes in menus between dungeon runs. I agree with Nahil from

I'm tired of exp, level, customization, skill trees, perks, stats, loot, lore, collectables, quests, etc. I just want to shoot, slash, and dash my way to victory.

Eli Lewis

If not for the right joy stick crap, could Dragon's Crown work on an arcade stick?

Eli Wright
Eli Wright

Well it uses the D-pad as a item shorcut and the left and right Triggers. So I guess if it was a Arcade stick with 12 buttons. The Right Joystick crap seemed more like something that would have worked as a wii mote gimmick .

Camden Ortiz
Camden Ortiz

^that is off the top of my head. I can't remember all the buttons. But generally its a Classic beatem up with a few bells an whistles. Similar to Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara.

Sengoku 3 is a great example of a game that's too fucking long for its own good. If you take your time it's like 3 hours.

This game is pretty fucking awesome, if I could manage to take it off my PS3 with the DLC and send it to you guys, I'd definitely do it just to try the multi shit.
lmao the creator of Scott Pilgay is actually even more of a pussy, wish I knew before I got really into the series. Thebestgamers managed to make him shut down his dA page because of "hateful bigot comments" and he's still butthurt no one is reading his comics anymore.
