Ringing in 2020 with Double Dragon part one


It's New Years Eve! You've probably guessed just like Christmas last week that the holidays have disrupted things and you're totally right! Just like I'm you doing a mix of enjoying the holiday breaks and being completely confused by my odd work schedule during this time (I have no clue what day it is). But thanks to scheduled posts I can plan out in advance having SOMETHING on the site during this weird time.

During the 8-bit and 16-bit gaming eras I loved pouring through the games instruction manual. There was nothing worse when a game had a half assed manual included, because so many had great ones. More than just the basic instructions to play the game, the better ones would have all sorts of world building fiction included. The games back story, info on various items and power ups, and often little blurbs about the characters. I loved these and would read them over many over and over. Under the break (for non-mobile users) is a few from a old school favorite of mine, Double Dragon! Screen capped directly from the NES versions manual itself.

Check back later for the second half of this post and the rest of the character bios from Double Dragon's game manual.
