Wade Hixton's Counter Punch is a cel-shaded boxing game, in which you play a wacky southerner who happens upon a small town called Piney, which is full of people wanting to kick his butt. It's not too out of the ordinary, given that Wade is a little dimwitted and prone to annoying almost everyone he encounters.
