Urgh, I like a challenge but bugger off doing this.

This is E1M1, pistol and shotgun, infighting didn't help thanks to that sodding achvile.

Run to the end you say?

I am making a bartop cab for it so have to test every thing about it

Picked up Vektor Wars for 0.97 and found a surprisingly decent TRON-themed arena shooter. Really good fun, especially at the price, highly recommended. Also Ghouls n Ghosts on MD Mini.... at least I'm trying to play it.... I was never great at it, 4th level was my best back in the day, but goddamn, I'm struggling to move off of the second at the moment.
Quick google reveals this was also on the wii-u - who knew???!?

Final fight street wise
Its
Decent, not awful
Escort missions are a bit annoying, especially when you fail thanks to the bloody NPC RUNNING TOWARDS SOMEONE WITH A GRENADE!!

I actually sort of enjoyed this in a so-censored-it's-entertaining way. The bizarre comments that NPC's in the streets come out with are hilarious. Like you say though, the escort stuff is awful (there is a horrible one right near the end of the game) and the end bosses are just dumb and so out of place.

Also, I liked the fact that you can fight Cammy in Streetwise. I quite liked her look and wish it would come back as a costume in a Street Fighter game but I doubt Capcom want to ever reference Streetwise...

As for me, finished Anarchy Reigns again. I've owned this game from new but it was only last night that I redeemed the Bayonetta DLC so I may play through some of the stages again with her. Reminded me that I have both Bayonettas on the Wii-U and have yet to play them. I don't understand why because I f****** love anything by Platinum.

The last boss on Final Fight Streetwise is Belgar's brother the old man in the wheelchair with the crossbow from Final Fight.. Belgars ghost comes back as the last boss on the Saturn Final Fight.

I heard allegedly you fight Poison after you beat Cammy this was on Gamefaqs so take that with a pinch of salt

You don't get to fight Poison, unfortunately. She and Sodom were both planned for the game but ultimately cut out.

It's just a weird game. By the end, you are fighting mutant/zombie style enemies and the bosses are more Resident Evil than Final Fight. Plus there's loads of swearing and a central theme of drugs (Cody is controlled by Belgar's brother via drugs).

But that's what made the game interesting and reasonably fun imo. It just needed more polish, a better fighting engine (perhaps like Capcom's own Beatdown: Fists of Vengeance) and a different name other than 'Final Fight'.

That’s what I hated about non stop swearing (dropping enough F bombs to start WW3) drug use and generic GTA enemies. Guys a Yakuza who runs China Town as I remember fighting a rival all female gang in Chinatown for guy all very contemporary boring street thugs then it brings in monsters and Zombies and becomes fantastical

The live action Final Fight with that UFC Champion as Haggar was miles better Poison, Sodom and Rolento who looked spot on. And Hagger pile drives a Mad Gear lackey through his majors podium.

Played a little of the Goldeneye 007 remake single player, it actually still looks very respectable using a component cable with the Wii.

Started the first Bayonetta and am about 3-4 chapters in. Really fun game even though I'm not that great at it. The set pieces are mental though (just completed the fiery stage where you are running up the walls of collapsing buildings and everything is topsy-turvy) and that familiar Platinum craziness is there. Really love Bayonetta as a character though and the hilarious cutscenes!

Im on the last boss
He's a bit of a git, it all seems to be down to luck, with where he starts and if he actually hits you.
It also dont help when I press b to pick things up and then get knocked down or he just dont
Pestilence was annoying, till I found the trick

King of the fighters allstars
Its pish.
It drains my phones battery
It needs to be always online (don't help)
And it slows down to a crawl

Its one of those loot crate games where extra characters are unlocked by "Summoning them"

New Super Mario Bros 2 on the 3DS. It's good , if unremarkable. I see the NSMB games a bit like level expansions anyway so that's fine.

I'm bussing it to work at the moment so I'm showing the other commuters how it's done, playing some proper games on a dedicated handheld, instead of mobile crap.
