Japan has given us
a bevy of fighting games over the years. Unfortunately, theyíve been
largely off-limits to me because any move more complicated than
ďquarter-circle forward + punchĒ is pretty much beyond my means. In
fact, any fighting game more advanced than Yie Ar Kung-Fu is likely
to end in much cursing. Still, all that ineptitude has not prevented
me from bringing you another bit of electronic ribaldry. This time,
the game in question is Power Instinct 2.
I have no idea why the assembled fighters are battling each other.
The whole game seems to take place in an amusement park, which is
dotted with pictures of a strange-looking old woman, perhaps the
theme parkís mascot. Among the fighters are a handful of old people,
a guy who looks a lot like Axel from Streets of Rage, and a chubby
Japanese kindergartener/exhibitionist named Kinta Kojuin.
game, he wears some kind of smock with a bear head painted on the
front to offset his Moe-from-The-Three-Stooges haircut. Not a
particularly dignified outfit to be wearing to a fight, but hey,
heís just a kid. He canít be counted on to dress himself properly.
Then again, what kind of parents would send their kid out looking
Anyway, heís got his dukes up, and heís ready to fight. When the
fighting actually begins, things really go downhill for him. His
fighting repertoire includes using his ass as a weapon and giving
the player a peek at his hindquarters. Behold:
Unfortunately, as is often the case, the pre-teen nudity did not end
with a few instances of ass-baring. Whenever Kinta gets knock
backwards, you get to see a critical design flaw in his fashionable
afraid your eyes do not deceive you. Whilst he is flying backwards
through the air, you get an eyeful of Peter and his two friends.
This marks the second game Iíve covered in which a wee lad does full
frontal, and frankly, itís a streak that Iím eager to break.
And so this
concludes our journey into some of the most disturbing pits of video
game hell. On behalf of myself (-RoG-), Dr. Boogie, and Pjalne, we
hope you've enjoyed the tour. As stated earlier, this will be an
ongoing piece, so if there's a video game with a sexual moment that
you'd like to see us do a write-up on,
let us know about it!
