Weird Wednesday – Go! Go! Muscle Edition

Posted on: December 3, 2009

This one’s a day late, but it’s weird enough that I had to think about it for an entire night before unleashing it on the possibly unprepared minds of readers.

This is Muscle March, a downloadable Wii game that came out in Japan earlier this year. With the miracle of DLC and the long tail, it’s coming out in English. Simply put, it’s a game where you have to chase down a musclebound, thong-wearing thief who’s stolen your protein shake. You have to use the Wiimote to make the same pose as the thief, who keeps busting holes in walls as he runs from your hot manly justice.

If this description sounds a bit, shall we say, homo-erotic to you, you’ve hit the nail right on the head. Muscle March is a spiritual cousin of the Cho Aniki series of shooters, from the protein-loving macho men to the peculiar character designs.

I already own Cho Aniki on my Wii to provide me some way to wash this year’s unending stream of lesbian anime out of my eyes, so I might buy this game, because it’s cheap. Then again, I might not buy this game either, because as most reviews have already pointed out, the game kind of sucks.
