Angry table-flipping: It's a videogame now

Japan will make a videogame out of anything it seems, including domestic violence and anger management issues. The rage of frustrated civilians has been condensed into a new arcade game, in which players must literally pound on a table and then flip it over in frustration.

Cho Chabudai Gaeshi -- based on the Japanese phrase "upending the tea table" -- places players in front of a plastic table peripheral, which they must slam their fists on in order to score points. It's a bit like Taiko Drum Master, but with a lot more intimidation and fury. As players bash their way to victory, they'll eventually get to score a coup de grace -- flipping the table over for the big finish. 

The best thing about this game has to be the kind of scenarios you can re-enact. The settings include a host club, a wedding party, an office and a Japanese living room. You can terrify a date or silence a nagging family by throwing the table over and shutting them up. 

So yeah, this is basically the best game ever. Hit the link for a video.
