You are Joe, a street fighter in the classical sense of the term. Targeted by the most dangerous gang in a dangerous city, you try to look inconspicuous as you leave the back alley location of your last brawl. As inconspicuous as you can traveling with a man in an orange gi and a man in homemade knight armor wielding a pipe like a sword, at least.

"So why are you guys coming along again?" you ask your companions.

"For might!" Tatsuya says, brandishing a fist.

"For right!" Saul says, holding up his pipe.

"That...that doesn't quite sound right," you say.

"Anyway. We have a rough game plan?" Tatsuya asks.

"We aim for the top. The Cogs are only dangerous because they're organized. If we can take out their base of operations the cops can mop up their remaining street soldiers pretty easily."

"Sounds good," you say. "So we just drive over there or what?

"It's more complicated than that," Tatsuya says. "First we've got to find out who's pulling the strings."

"Two ways to do this," Saul says. "One, we go to the radio station they own. You heard them pass the hit on you, right? Someone there has to be in touch with the boss. He might even be there. Either way, it's a lead."

"Sounds legit," you say, mulling it over. "And the other?"

"There's a new street drug half of these punks are out of their mind on, The Glow. We find a dealer and beat his supplier out of him, then we keep moving up. Whoever's running the Cogs is running The Glow."

"Radio station. Working our way up a supply chain could take too long, we should take a more direct route."

"Most excellent," Saul says. "You guys want a ride? I'm parked on the street."

"I...really? I kind of thought we'd have to fight a lot of guys on the way there," you say.

"Yeah, this...this seems convenient," Tatsuya says. Sounds disappointed. Probably hoped he'd get to smash his way through a horde of enemies to reach it.

"Yeah, it's that...one..." Saul's voice drops as the three of you reach the streetcorner.

"The one that's on fire?" you ask. A dozen Waifus in a mixture of mismatched Japanese costumes - hakamas paired with high school uniforms, kimonos being worn open like trenchcoats - stand between you and the car, backlit by the flames. A teenaged girl steps forward, flanked by katana-wielding Waifus.

"I hear you motherfuckers broke up a dice game we had goin'," she says.

"The Cogs did. Those total motherfuckers," you say. It's half true.

"I also hear you say anime's for little kids," she says.

"That's not a problem, is it? I mean, you are a little kid," Tatsuya says. He seems unfazed by the Waifus producing a mismatched scattering of Japanese weapons.

"BANZAAAAAAI!" the little girl screams. The Waifu horde charges forward.

A few ideas flash through your head. First, katanas are sharp. You're not stabproof, you're fairly certain your friends aren't either. Maybe if you start by psychologically unbalancing them....?

"MACROSS WAS BETTER THAN GUNDAM!" you shout at the horde. The momentum of the charge is broken instantly as they lower their weapons and begin arguing.

The three of you are on them before they finish explaining the intricacies of giant robots to you. You kick the nearest katana-wielder (the one wearing a kimono open like a trenchcoat over a Lum t-shirt) in the stomach and follow it with an elbow to the skull while he's bent over. The two next to him - unarmed - go down just as fast.

By the time you're finished with the enemies near you Tatsuya and Saul had carved through their share of the horde. That only left the little kid.

"So you didn't hear the radio message?" you ask.

"Fuck no, they ain't play j-pop on the radio, fuck that noise. Anyway, so this dude in the purple suit tells us to wait here and jump you."

"And my car?" Saul asks, gritting his teeth.

"His eyes start glowing bright fucking red, man! Lit it on fire WITH HIS MIND!"

"What." Tatsuya looks unimpressed.

"True story, man. Lit it on fire with his mind and fuckin' teleported out!"

"Sounds legit," you say, voice dripping with sarcasm.

"I suppose that you didn't...believe...all of that, huh?" she says, doubt starting to cross her face. "I suppose you couldn't BEAR for this to be true, huh? Couldn't BEAR it?"

Everyone exchanges panicked looks for a split second before rushing forward and dragging the duo away from the car.

"Alright, we're going to the train station. But first we're changing clothes."

"What? Why?" Saul asks.

"Because the descriptions they have of us are probably vague. 'Guy with armor and a sword. Guy in orange gi. Guy in army jacket.' If we can get on the train without a fight we might be able to surprise whoever's behind the Cogs when we show up."

"I see your point," Saul says. He begins to remove the homemade armor, setting is carefully aside. Hopefully the Waifus won't find it if they manage to wake up.

"And me?" Tatsuya says. "This gi's all I've got. Fighting people was all I really had planned for the night."

"Take a kimono off of one of the Waifus that will fit over it," you say. Tatsuya looks hesitant. "Next time we get in a fight you can dramatically disrobe like a boxer. Come on, it'll be boss."

"That...that does sound kinda cool, actually," he says. He goes to look for a Waifu with a kimono big enough.

For yourself, you shed the army jacket. Blue jeans and a white t-shirt aren't very distinct, you think to yourself. You see guys who look like this all the time.

By the time you reach the station you look like a giant European in a business suit carrying a pipe, a giant Japanese man in a nonsensical kimono covered in dragons and a Bruce Springsteen wannabe.

The three of you settle onto a bench, still trying to look totally normal. The station reeks of garbage and spray paint from the tags and graffiti covering everything, but it's tolerable. There's trash everywhere but no needles, and at least the tags aren't just dicks drawn all over everything. Altogether one of the nicer stations in this town. Over your awkward silence you can hear the punks at the other end of the platform joking around with each other, laughing over some dumb joke or another. No music, though. Maybe they haven't heard about the manhunt for you.

"So how did you guys learn to fight like that?" you ask, trying to break the quiet.

"Kyokugen Karate. Strongest style in the world," Tatsuya says. "I'm doing a bit of a walkabout, traveling to find what I can learn in new places before I head back to my home school."

"Yeah? You staying with friends in the city or something?" you ask.

"A dojo that we're kinda friendly with is letting me crash there," he says. You have a feeling this is a continuity nod to something, but in the original Street Fighter Quest we never did learn Pete's last name so it can't be casually dropped here to explain how he and Tatsuya first became acquainted when Tatsuya stayed at his parent's dojo when he was a child.

"Huh. How about you, big guy?" you ask Saul.

"Did a lot of LARPing back home," he says. "Really fun stuff. It doesn't always translate to hitting people with a big pipe, but it's close enough."

"What made you start the whole knight thing in the first place?" Tatsuya asks. "I keep running into you beating on dudes, but I never thought to ask.

"As I was leaving a...club, some young men thought they could have some fun beating the shit out of some friends of mine. I decided to teach them the error of their ways," he says. "After that I just kept intervening wherever I saw trouble. Next thing I know I've got a reputation."

Tatsuya and Saul keep talking - exchanging strategies for keeping cops from noticing you beating on gang members, how to find the best concentrations of them to beat up - but your attention is drawn elsewhere. A youngish guy dressed a little like you were a few hours ago came in to wait for a train. One of the thugs noticed him and quieted the rest. They're watching him like a hawk now.

"I think we've got a problem," you say. Tatsuya and Saul quiet down as well and watch.

"Hey, Joe," one of the gang members yells. Your lookalike doesn't look up. The gang member throws a half-empty beer at the double. It bounces off his shoulder. "Hey, I'm talking to you, fuckface. You deaf or something?"

"My name's - "

"We know your name, bitch," the lead punk says. He's walking his way to the double, over-acting casual bravado. "We know who you are and we know what you did. You wanna come with us easy or you wanna fight?"

We should try to talk to them, asking them what is the problem and offering the small guy a chance to explain he is not us. We can actually offer a couple dollars, and negotiate some additional favor (like a free beer and such) and preach about going along together, good manners and peace.

You have some better ideas. But then that Lionel Richie song gets stuck in your head, with his beautiful voice and that heartbreaking video. That blind girl sculpted his head! That's so cool!

You motion for Tatsuya and Saul to follow as you stand up and walk towards the punks. The poor bastard must think you're also here to harass him, he's almost shaking.

At the last moment you decide to try diplomacy, though. Just...see if it works.

"What's the problem here, guys?" you ask.

"Fuck right off you horrible little fuck," the punk snarls at you. He pulls a knife, does that dumb stereotypical blade-licking thing. "Bosses are paying for anyone fits this description. We beat enough of these losers we're gonna get the right one eventually."

Shit. Sounds like everyone who fits your description is being harassed. And you have an incredibly vague description.

You wait for him to start licking the blade again and punch him in the mouth. It's...it's really gross, actually. The rest of the punks step back, horror and disgust written on their faces.

"Hello," you say. "Is it me you're looking for?"

The punks look confused. Probably should have opened with that line or just abandoned it.

"I mean, you...I'm saying I am the man you're looking for. That's what I'm getting....fuck, let's just beat them up."

Tatsuya doesn't even have to dramatically unrobe. Thirty seconds later half the punks are laying unconscious, the other half are badly beaten. Time to ham it up.

"All you wounded! And those of you who can! Hurry back and tell your leaders you'll need more men!" You bend over and take the bandana off the first punk - the one with the bloody mouth - and dramatically wrap it around your head. "I'm headed to...." You look at the train's scheduled stops. You'll need a stop that's nowhere near the radio station... "To our secret base downtown! By the Inafune stop!"

The train finally makes its appearance as the terrified punks make a run for it. The three of you (and your terrified lookalike) step onto the train. You wait until the train starts moving before you tear it off and start laughing.

Calling it there for today, the internet in my building keeps going on the fritz. We'll be back again at 1pm 4chan time tomorrow.

If anyone's still around, though: I've been wanting to turn control of the combat a bit more to you guys. Anyone have ideas for a rules-light enough way to handle it that won't bog us down in the quest? Or previous quest threads that handled combat in a way you liked?

The final boss of Final Fight Streetwise is a Glowed-out-of-his-mind-turned-giant-berserker Cody, spurred on by the evil preacher who turns out to be the brother of Belgar (remember him? Dude you kicked out the window at the end of FF1?).

Which will ALWAYS infuriate me, because 3d brawlers can be AMAZING games, tremendous fun, and Streetwise shat all over that and Final Fight by being a tremendous piece of crap. Anyone looking for fun 3d brawlers should try out Godhand and The Warriors, both for PS2.

Weren't there several systems made depending on different fighting styles? Our style is sambo, so there's a pretty even mix of striking and grappling, with an emphasis on submissions.

I like the combat system in God Hand, I just sort of wish the rest of the game around it was better. I'd avoided The Warriors because I thought it looked like a bad tie-in, if it's actually good I'll have to go find it.

Oh yes, The Warriors is a metric fuckton of fun. And then you play coop and it goes beyond even that. Game could use some more polishing, especially when it comes to graphics, but holy crap is it a fun beatemup. It's a game that gives you experiences like beating the crap out of a butcher with the salamis found in his shop because he wouldn't pay protection money, or grabbing a mime/clown from behind and pulling his head down so your buddy can crack the back of his skull open with a bat/lead pipe like he's trying to decapitate the creep. Then there's pelting a wheelchair-bound, revolver-wielding skinhead with bricks and empty bottles and making him fall into a chasm. Or punching and pillaging your way through a good chunk of NYC, because POWER'S OUT MOTHERFUCKERS! and then the riot cops show up and beat the shit out of everyone. Everyone.

The Warriors is a fun game is what I'm trying to say here, and very much worth anyone's time, especially fans of the beatemup genre.
