I do not understand Kageki. It just appeared one day at one of my local arcades. I watched the attract mode, and couldn’t really tell what it was about, but felt oddly compelled to play it. What I do know is that you play some kind of brawler, and you have to beat up a series of people in a gang. When you beat one, the next one comes in, throws the one that lost in the sewer, and then you have to fight him. This apparently continues until you can beat everyone. Then you win!

The problem I had with this game is that I couldn’t hit anyone more than once or twice before the computer completely unloaded on me, knocking me out almost instantly. Watch this video to see what I’m talking about. He turns off the invincibility cheat toward the end.

I was only stupid enough to play this game two times. One to figure out what it was, and one more time to convince myself that the controls weren’t as bad as I thought. This is the kind of game that I just don’t want to spend the time to get good at, if such a thing is possible.
