You Really Don't Want To Take This Guy's Coin

The man's name is Donovan Murdock and he really likes his favourite coin. So much that he'll kick the arse of everyone in the universe to get it back. And that beatdown is a wonderful thing to see.

Made by Exit 73 Studios, this animated clip pays homage to the side-scrolling beat-em-ups of yore, throwing in the kind of moves and fluidity we couldn't even dream of back in the day. Aside from the obvious references to Double Dragon, I'm also seeing a sly nod to Portal too. What references can you spot in this three-minute display of awesomeness?


    Finally we get to see the Freeflow Combat system of Arkham Origins in action.

    That was some goddamn manly shit right there. Reminded me of Regular Show and Adventure Time.

    Top score, that.

    It looked like it was going to suck, but it turned out to be awesome! Very Paul Robertson-y.

    Is the Portal reference when he reaches his arm into a hole and a big version of his fist comes down, because I have a feeling that's more a Bayonetta reference.
