Thursday’s Download: Double Dribble 2: The Revenge.
Well, it looks like the Virtual Console is refusing to stay down for the count as yet another new title was added to the service today. That’s right, this means that the VC has been updated in some form or another for five straight weeks now, some kind of record to be sure. Today’s retro game is Double Dribble 2: The Revenge for the NES, Acclaim’s action fueled 2-player sequel to Konami’s classic NBA game. This entry marks a truly odd departure for the series, finding what we can only assume are two former professional basketball players on a quest to rescue someone’s girlfriend. Apparently these two guys are also martial arts masters as players will quickly find themselves administering every flavor of pain known to the Earth upon anyone unfortunate enough to walk past them on the sidewalk. It’s pretty simple stuff but a lot of fun and if you’ve got a buddy to play alongside, easily worth the five dollar admission.
