Here's a big "What's the deal...?" I've been playing the Arcade game "Wild West C.O.W.Boys" arcade game on MAME, and I've noticed a few things.... here's a video of 4 player game play. Okay... remember the bootleg Lion King game where the game over sequence has Simba, Timon, and Pumbaa all committing suicide for no reason? Well, if you watched the gameplay footage above, it's a very uncharacteristically dark game. First off, when a player dies, he turns into a well cooked steak with his initial on a toothpick. EEK. The mini-boss who's in a small battle Hot Air balloon, when defeated, swallows a stick of dynamite and blows up. Yikes. And in the window of the ghost town, the building that burns down and reveals a cow version of Slimer, before it engulfs in flame, you can see the silhouette of a cow with a knife about to stab someone Norman Bates style. Now, if anyone remembers the cartoon, there was a lot of behind the scenes problems with censorship, and the Wild West C.O.W. Boys couldn't use guns (because Glob forbid we show that kind of weapon famous in westerns) with the exception of Marshall Moo's sheriff star shooting non-gun that he rarely used anyway. And the video game got away with some surprisingly morbid crap. I'm going to ignore the fact they do indeed use fire arms, as it's basically just a kiddy licensed version of Sunset Riders...but turning into a steak when you die? Such a turn from barely being able to attack the villains.
