    Need some advice...

    What are some good beat-em ups for the wii? The ones like the old double dragon for NES, or like Golden Axe? Some also call them hack n slash.

    Like Simpsons or Turtles arcade games.

    Any thoughts?

    Well...I suggest you take a look at toadking's mame emulator. It's kinda basic, but it plays those arcade beat 'em ups quite well (asterix, turtles, x-men, vendetta, simpsons, ...).


    For modern ones, I can only think of samurai warriors 3 right now.


    (well...there was that 8 bit GTA-parody I saw a spoiler from...retro city rampage, iirc. But that one isn't released yet).

    That new Batman game does look good!

    Also, I seem to be having a problem with toadkings mame. I downloaded it directly from the home brew browser, and tried fromt eh website. Every time i try to start it, it kicks me back to the home brew channel. I dont know if it is a problem with hbc 1.08 or what...

    Would love to get it working.

    No more heroes, anyone? Werehog?

    If you're looking for a 2d one, beats of rage has you covered!

    Thanks for the ideas on the emulators. I do have all of them installed and working. (nes, snes, genplus, hugo, except for that darned mame i cant get working).

    I will check out Madworld, and beats of rage.

    Thanks all, keep the ideas coming!
