A phone on the table
A man on your side
Someone that you think that you can trust
Another way to die
A door left open,
A woman walking by,
A drop in the water,
A look in the eye,
A phone on the table,
A man on your side,
Someone that you think that you can trust
Is just another way to die

Yes, they had axes.
Ha! It'll take more than being tied to a lit keg of explosives and tossed into a pit of acid filled with mutant, acid-resistant flying piranhas equipped with flame throwers and battle-axes while mechanical, missile-launching morris dancers armed with liquid nitrogen harpoon guns are overhead, riding giant, rabid killer bees with side mounted death rays to kill Othar Tryggvassen

Superior, Ariz., is the original town without pity. During the course of his brief stay there, Bobby will be kicked in the ribs several dozen times, almost be bitten by a tarantula, shot at, and have his car all but destroyed—and that's all before the final scenes with the vultures circling overhead. Bobby comes across almost like a character in a computer game; you wipe him out, he falls down, stars spin around his head
, and then he jumps up again, ready for action.
In Nintendo you control a little man who runs around the screen trying to stay alive while numerous powerful and inexplicably hostile forces try to kill him. It's a lot like New York.

Mowed down by cars.
Mowed down by motorcycles.
Mowed down by invisible skeletons.
Mowed down by bodybuilders.
Mowed down by frisbees thrown by steroidal transsexuals.

Killer bees that are released if you take too long.

There is one thing Shada
does that is extremely original though. If you try to leave a given area without having completed all the tasks required there, a character approaches and blocks the path to the next area, informing you of the error of your ways. You then instantly die! Incredible idea, imagine playing like The Legend of Zelda
or a Dragon Age
game or something where you just spontaneously combust when you talk to someone. Welcome to Maka Hakkenden Shada.
