Boobs. That is all.

So, what you're saying is that Rig is actually Scotty Riggs of The American Males?

@Vitor: Nope, honestly it's just you. I will grant you that in comparison to TTT2 it's not on that level graphically but you're shitting yourself if you think this looks like a hi -res PS2 game. The detail in the stages and the costumes, especially the ninjas, is really good.

So, not that it's a particularly big deal, but why is this game rated M? Is it just the jiggly titties? Or is there something else? The combo of violence and titties? I dunno, shit.

This looks far better than I thought it would be. I might pick this up next year.

I love the comparison to Japanese television dramas.

Content descriptors: Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes, Violence
Other:
  • Includes online features that may expose players to unrated user-generated content (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)
Rating summary: This is a fighting game in which players engage in martial arts battles against a large cast of characters. Players mostly punch and kick opponents during fast-paced rounds of combat. Some fighters use special attacks involving swords, throwing weapons, or magic; matches are accompanied by battle cries and exaggerated impact effects. Cutscenes also depict instances of violence, such as characters getting struck down with swords in slow motion. Most female fighters are dressed in revealing outfits (large amounts of cleavage); their breasts sometimes jiggle while standing or fighting. Some bikini-style costumes (with thin strips of cloth) barely cover fighters' bodies, exposing large amounts of breasts/buttocks; one hologram-like figure appears to be nude—though her reflective skin obscures any discernible details (i.e., nipples or genitalia). In Photo mode, players can zoom in on fighters' cleavage or underwear as they pose for the camera. Some scenes are coupled with sexual innuendo (e.g., “Pleasure me,” “Enough with the foreplay.”).

I seriously lol'd right after they showed the timeline. Oh god.

Posted by steelerzfan101

This game looks hilarious! I doubt that I would be able to take this game seriously while playing it! Also, some of those cut scenes had some pretty awkward moments and angles...

I would say that Dead or Alive 5 definitely knows its audience at this point, and focuses on it like a goddamn microscope.

I want all old fighting game franchises to call it quits right now. Start fresh.

@Milkman: Riggs in The Flock was the hypest. He was a stripper but then Raven gave him a drop toehold onto a chair and made him half blind :(

Helena's fake French accent made me cringe.

Also, boobs.

Actually Mila's design is pretty solid, tasteful, and not insane.

Some of the Character models look really strange - almost like creepy mannequins. It's the same problem they had with Tomb Raider - trying to make the characters look realistic, while retaining the same face proportions of the earlier character models - they don't look right. Especially Kasumi - she looks like she's made out of plastic. Which is weird.

@HerbieBug: Start fresh with what? A new fighting game IP is one of the worst ideas to try and do right now. Fighting games only play to a specific audience and whenever someone tries to do a new IP or something different with the genre, it tanks (Battle Fantasia, Max Anarchy, etc) which is why it's been nothing but sequels, reboots, crossovers, and/or whatever other gimmicks. Just look at how gimmicky or desperate for attention fighting games have become recently. A fresh start would be a terrible idea for the genre at the moment. In a few years, maybe, but right now it just be a disaster.

Jeff and Ryan tackling DOA is great, but man... FIFA and Pro Evo came out too. Which means Jeff and Vinny - the GB Sports Club/"Footballsmen" - HAVE to tackle another sport-related Quick Look! Can't wait for that. This is just filler until we get to the next sports QL.

I do like DOA though. Best fighting system in my honest opinion. These animations are so fast and responsive and blend together so well, it just feels the best. It also has the counter system - all fighting games need to give you something engaging to do so you don't just get beaten up if you're not as good as your opponent. Mortal Kombat added the Kombo Breakers. Soul Calibur has the guard impact. Dead or Alive has the counters. And they're fantastic. So in terms of raw gameplay, DOA is pretty awesome. But it's still weirdly pervy in places and DOA5 doesn't feel like a big evolution at all. The whole series is basically still hanging out in Dead or Alive 2's shadow, which was a very, very good game admittedly. But if they won't even make new sound fx, they really don't need to make a new one, do they?

DOA vs. Virtua Fighter should've happened before a DOA5.

I cannot wait for the new video player. This one ALWAYS gives me headaches. ugh.

Yes. I NEED to see Jeff trying to play Be A Pro (for those unfamiliar with FIFA, this is a mode where you play as a single player in a match). Preferably in 11vs11 multiplayer.

Never mind the Japanese overdressing part, but no shinny, sparkly, flashy, colourful, cartoony POW sign hit markers and special moves? Where's the world coming to...

Posted by PixelPrinny

Huh. Well... I was expecting a little more after how this was hyped on the Bombcast., I guess. After watching this it really just felt like another fighting game released in a year that saw a ton of fighting games.

I'm surprised because I remember when games like Tekken and DOA used to be high watermarks for graphical fidelity. Alongside Wrestler hair of course.

You are blind. Don't look into those story stages sooo much.

Presented without comment, there's a man in this series named Fame Douglas.

edit: Holy shit. raps about the fighting game? It's been a looooong ass time since we had some of those.

Posted by xite

I like the WINNER! announcer. Sounds like Killer Instinct.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Oddly enough, I think they've dialed down their creepy boobs some from the previous games in the series. Still creepy and tasteless, mind you, but less so. I don't see this incarnation of Team Ninja making a volleyball game, for instance.

Oh hell yes Ryan.

Looks like Dead or Alive.

I'm... disappointed?

at some level, ALL of us pictured Jeff fondling boobs.

If you want to play boob-fighter, whatever. I've heard of way worse fetishes than liking boobs. But if that's what DoA is all about, after all of this time - how does it not even get that right?

DOA gets boobs right about as much as Metal Gear Solid gets stories right.

I really liked in the new MK where your opponent got up between rounds, no resets. Why don't other games do this? That was really cool to see them just get back up for the next round, bloody and all.

Posted by Andy_117

This looks much more tasteful than I remember Dead or Alive being. It makes me think the developers said, "yeah, okay, so our series is known for boobs, so lets put those in, but let's not make them so prominent you can't focus on the mechanics of the game." During gameplay, anyway. The cutscenes and victory screens maybe not so much. But it's definitely a step forward.

Dead or Alive 2 was basically pornography. This just looks like a fighting game with a boob fetish. Ain't nothin' wrong wit' dat. It's sufficiently self-aware for it to not be an overriding issue.

Posted by CharAznable

After Jeff's buildup, I was expecting even more insanity. Kinda disappointed.

Posted by I_Stay_Puft

Oh man can't wait for DOA Xtreme Beach Volleyball 3, mostly for the storyline.

The X axis is by character, the Y axis is time, and the line is the order in which you play them?

Haha! Holy shit, as soon as the Timeline popped up, i laughed for a good minute. I am very excited to get my hands on this game, i wish they kept the DOA4 lobbies.
