This week's Xbox LIVE 'Deal of the Week' has taught me one thing and one thing only: there are way too many different King of Fighters games on XBLA. Well, two of the games are regular ol' fighters and I can handle two fighters—hell, two fighters seems tame compared to what Capcom releases—but the third game, KoF Sky Stage, is a shoot 'em up starring six fighters from the series flying around magically while shooting bullets manifesting from something that is likely unhealthy. Watching videos of Sky Stage in action only adds more questions as to what they were smoking during development. Regardless of which and how many drugs were ingested, SNK is having a pretty nice sale this week and while I've never been a big fan of KoF, I love me some Metal Slug and highly recommend both games on sale.
