Imagine if the first opponent you meet in a game is a boss. Can you say "Bambi Meets Godzilla"?
My personal code of honor now requires that I throw the game into the corner of my living room.
Update: My second attempt was more successful. Two colossi have bitten the dust. (Sorry, Tobe)
More update: Here is an interesting, a-ha, perspective on the game. Everything is sexy if you look at it the right way.
