Fatman tongued

That's the most horrible post title I think I'll ever write! I had a bit of extra PC time last night, so I played a couple of games quickly. Tongue of the Fatman was without a doubt one of the worst fighting games I've ever played. The control system was the real problem - it was all on the num keypad and gives me hand cramp just thinking about it. There were some nice bits like being able to bet on the outcome of the fight and being able to buy items to help you in between bouts, but the actual fighting itself was so atrocious that I couldn't continue with it. Good graphics, good atmosphere with loads of really quirky characters...just writing about it does make me want to give it another go, but no, I don't think I can face it. (And just so you know, that title screen image is actually animated - he does indeed sit there and rub his nipples.)

So, I went for the next game on the randometer. This time it was... Face Off! Nothing to do with the John Woo flick, it's an old ice hockey sim. I'm going to stick to one game per post (for screenshot reasons), so I'll be back in a mo' with my thoughts on the game.
