A Cautionary Tale: Jack-6
Once upon a time, there was a young brother and sister whose parents purchased the game Tekken 6 for their PS3. They fancied themselves quite skillful fighters. At the height of their conceit, they foolishly challenged their uncle French Ghost to a match, even having the audacity to promise to "go easy" on him.
"Before we begin," their uncle warned, "I have to ask you a very serious question. Can you handle Jack-6?"
"Of course we can!" was the cheerful reply.
Alas. As it turns out, they, in fact, could not handle the brutal onslaught of Jack-6. Uncle French Ghost pummeled them without mercy. Again, and again, and again. And when the children's father intervened, he too was the recipient of a heaping serving of "beat-down."
Eventually, I left the house undefeated, and the children breathed a sigh of relief.
I got skillz.
