Well Clement, it just struck me that for those who believe beat em ups are
symple there should probably be an explanation.
Were I my brother, and thus more interested in the competative and strategic
aspects of gaming rather than it's plot and general detail, I'd have
probably already bought a ps3 or similar just for the 4 or 5 strategical
beat em ps on it, ---- my brother for instance does play the marval vs
For me though, the stratogy is secondary to achieving a goal in the game.
even back in the early 90's, where as my brother would play one character to
perfection on a game like street fighter 2, I'd try and work to complete the
game on as many characters, seeing as many endings as I could.
Thus, beat em ups only make up a fraction of the games I'm interested in
playing generally, and so I wouldn't buy a console just for them
specifically, ---- in fact on my gamecube, I own only two actual gamecube
original games gc games, mk da, soul calibur 2, however I then own a hole
bunch of collections of older games like the Mega man aniversary and x
collections, and a huge range of gameboy advanced games, most of which are
arcade or exploration plataformers like Metroid fusion or Omega factor.
This is basically what I'd want a console for, and why i'm more interested
in the Wii owing to the amount of classic games playable on it, beat em ups
alone just don't do it for me.
Beware the grue!
