By consequences, I mean that there are four drug-addled street fighters rampaging through the streets and crushing any zombie, gangster, or pig-masked gimp that strays into their path.  Based on what I've seen of Russian dashcam footage, I can't really tell if this is any different than your average day in Russia.  Those of us who haven't ventured east of Latvia are guaranteed a new experience, at the very least.

As of this moment, Legend of Dungeon is available to purchase. The 2.5D sidescrolling roguelike takes a page from old school brawlers like Double Dragon and wraps everything in a moody, dynamically-lit RPG shell, complete with randomly generated content. The result is a challenging and great-looking game that throws everything at you from snakes to crawling things that latch onto your face.

Ska Studios has slowly been releasing pieces of concept art and screenshots for its upcoming Xbox Live Arcade beat-em-up RPG (brawl-PG, if you will) Charlie Murder. The most recent piece shows Lester Deth's transition from shirtless punk with pale skin to a shirt-wearing punk with darker skin. Actually, several of the characters seem to have started out shirtless, including the band's manager and hypnotist, Kelly Skitten. Don't worry, though. Resident massive human, The Rexecutioner, is still brawling and drumming topless.

The retail version of Code of Princess, the RPG/beat 'em up hybrid for the 3DS, was released back in October. Just recently, however, the game was put up into the Nintendo eShop for those of us who just like to download our games and jump right into them (or have a fear of boxes). The eShop allows 3DS owners to purchase the game for $39.99 with either their credit card or a Nintendo pre-paid card.

If there's one thing the good people of Atlus know how to do, it's promote the heck out of a game. Case in point: they've just released a third trailer for Code Princess, the 3DS beat-em-up/RPG that's coming in October. Okay, Atlus has another specialty: beautiful premium packaging and bonuses for launch copies of many of their titles. Code of Princess gets the deluxe packaging treatment too, providing a nice incentive for fans to preorder.

Though beat-'em-up games are pretty common even these days, they are less frequently seen on PC and Mac. Does the Asskickers kick some ass, or does playing it feel like a kick in the ass? Find out in our co-op review.

  Harken back to my golden age of gaming, a time when the Sega Genesis and SuperNES were head to head in the console wars.  There was a game genre that sparked my love of co-op, one that seems to have all but disappeared.  From Altered Beast to Golden Axe, Streets of Rage to Double Dragon - the co-op beat em up games were the cream of the crop in co-op experiences.  The concept of these games was simple - partner up with a friend and punch, kick and attack everything in your path.  They were challenging, fun, and over the top; but once 3D games became popular they all but disappeared.
