Hideous side projects

I don't know why I am surprised, but the last boss in Fist of the North Start is total bullshit. Three stage fight with no health recovery items, giant environmental hazards that the bad guy can juggle you off of, plus he can become completely invincible for not so short amounts of time and if you don't have the right special move equipped all you can do is run away (guess who didn't have the right move ready). I tried about four or five times before calling it evening and resolved to give it one more try today - on easy. This will not be the first time that I have wussed out on a game just to get to the end. Dragon Age is the greatest offender, as I did not know until after the fact that I could have been calling allies in for the whole fight. Prototype was another, but that was dropped down to easy about an hour in and was a much better experience for it.

Once Raoh is defeated I am done with this game. There are several other characters who each have their own story mode, plus a dream mode that let you play as bosses, so it looks like there is a lot more content. Every level looks exactly the same, and sections of areas are revisited constantly. There are only two or three different small enemy types, and maybe three different big guys, and about three different boss types. So really, why have I been plaything this?

I have been trying to avoid thinking about MvC3, of course.
