Do you like DoA? Have a PS3? Is it hooked to a 3D tv? If so I have some good news for you.
It's been a while since the last Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball gave you jimmys carpal tunnel, but this summer you'll get another chance.
Read full story...
Details on the first DLC pack.
The price is set to be 400MS points or 5.00 on PSN, not but but what are they offering? Some new costumes (I know what a surprise), Shadow Mode will be there, Jill and Shuma are in (sorry if that was the only reason you picked up the S.E.).
If this will be how they roll out the DLC it should add value to getting it, but it feels like stuff that should have been in game. I know plenty of you have bought the costumes for SFIV but what happened to that stuff being unlockable in the game? Am I the only one who was proud of dumping in Hours just to be the only person you knew with Zack's Alien costume in DOA 3? I know that there is a group of people who want it all just handed to them, but that was part of the fun in beating the game. Who's getting the hook-up with pack 1? Thor, Captain America and Iron Man on the Marvel side, and Dante, Chris Redfield and Ryu on the Capcom side, not a ton, but hey they need the money right. But the Patriot skin for Iron Man, now they are mixing characters. Maybe we should expect an Iceman / Silver Surfer after all.
To say I have mixed feelings would be an understatement, but in this case I think Shadow Mode alone is worth the $5.00. We'll just have to wait for round 2 to see if they are going to milk it or really have something to add to the game.
Don't be a jimmy. You going to buy it, pissed, or really just don't care? Let's hear it.

More of the same with DoA, but there are some new features to enjoy
We already new that with Dead or Alive 5 we were going to see some Virtua Fighter characters so hearing that Sarah Bryant was one of them wasn't earth shattering news. And as someone who wasn't that into the series it's not a big deal to me.
We also know that there are always tons of costumes (some stranger than others) and this shot of Hitomi Shows we can expect more of that. And there is also a clown suit for Zack so I see a pattern.
They also say that the levels will be more destructible and if you have the demo you can see that for yourself.
The graphics look great, but that is another constant for the series.
We can expect more than 20 characters, and we know a few so far. Not much room for surprises there, but they don't say how many past 20.
Two new features are Critical Bursts (not their tops sorry jimmy) that will allow you to stun your opponent for a couple seconds. The second is Power Blows, allowing you to charge up your attack and direct the way your opponent flies.
Tag battles will be back again. I prefer the one on one matches, but it's more of the same. There will even be team Power Blows (try writing that without adding a dirty joke) that could turn the moment of the fight.
Not that much to really shock us, but with a formula that has worked this well you really don't need to mess with it much. Still at the top of my list for games to get this year (who know maybe with some help from Gouki.com) and with a release date set at September 25 it makes that month feel so far away. It's the same month as Borderlands 2 (like anyone here didn't know that) and 2 months never felt so long and that's coming from a guy who went through basic training for the Army.
How many of you are counting the days until you pick this up? Anyone Playing DoA 4 and the demo like crazy while you wait? Or are you just waiting for the high def jiggles?

BlazBlue character set to get dirty?
Noel Vermillion may be getting ready to show some skin.
Mai Shiranui will be there also.
It's a special kind of strategy RPG being brought to Japan by Namco Bandai, for some reason I don't see it making it to the US. If you notice that the game has a panic button you might understand why we won't get it over here.
This is another game adaptation of the anime Queen's Blade. http://fierceanime.com/Story/Details/queens-blade--swords--ta
And here is a video for the game.

Here is another game that I was super hyped for, but as time passed I got worried it would be a crappy game. So I held off on buying it, but thanks to Gouki.com I got to check it out.
Lets start this off by saying I am a big fan of Marvel. Unfortunately their games just don't compare to the likes of the Batman series. But when I heard that Marvel was working on a game where you were going to be playing a mutant coming into their powers I couldn't believe it. Of course I start thinking I'll be making my own character, wrong. Then we hear that you will make choices that affect the story, kind of. But as a true fanboy I had to give it a chance. And Gouki.com made it happen (thanks guys) and I'll be looking to return the favor to one of my fellow jimmys.
After a combo of a motion comic and a short video clip that give you an idea of what's going on I was ready to start the game. Like Goukijones I started with Aimi the asian girl. I did try the guys afterwards just to see how it affected the story and to use all 3 main powers. They each interact slightly different, but not enough that you really feel like their is a replay value.
After you select your character you get a little clip to fill you in on their story then all hell breaks lose as a rally gets attacked. You are then given the choice of the 3 power choices. And unless they add more by DLC that is all the choices you get, Density Control, Energy Projection, and Shadow Matter. I went with the third choice and after trying all the powers it was still my favorite. As you get farther into the game you get options for expanding your powers. Giving you 3 attack and a constant effect. Really lacking considering the wealth of powers available in the Marvel universe. The offer X-genes from a few mutants and they also come in sets of 3 to augment your character's powers. you get to switch them out and and can mix and match them. If you put a full set together including a suit that changes your look you get access to a bonus that in most cases is useless. All of these parts are random so you can end up unable to put a full set together for most of the game.
So lets get on to what should have been the driving point of the game, the story and how it changes. You get to decide on following the X-Men or the Brotherhood. This is done through a series of choices on side missions. Well to be fair they aren't so much missions as little battle arenas. You can help both sides in most cases with only a few times you have to choose between the two. This is when you will interact with the big names, and a few that are less known. But for some reason they half-assed it. You still do the same basic story either way with just a few changes thrown in. This was a major let down. Why put the time in to make a great game when you can sell it for the box and name on it? Well that fact that you have good games to compete with.
The game gives you almost no room to explore, you can look around corners to find x-genes and collectibles, but you won't wander far.
The first play through I went X-Men, then Brotherhood, then mixed them together. Unless you want a few minutes of face time with the other team the only other pay off is you get a pat on the back from either Cyclops or Magneto.
After you finish the game you can play a new game + using the same character with the same power and keep the stuff you gathered. Or you can start from scratch with a new character and basically get nothing. When you get to your second play through you will want to skip a lot of the scenes, but that just isn't an option. If they want to add to the game they need to patch that. Let's not forget that you don't choose when to save, the game does it on it's own at pre-selected areas. Many of them right before a long cut scene. As was mentioned before this is a very short game. In about 4 days i beat the game 4 times and unlocked everything. when you compare that to the nearly two hundred of hours I've put into Disgaea 4 and the amount of stuff I have left to do in the game it feels pretty crappy. Luckily the price is dropping fast and even better for me and one of you the game can come just for being a good jimmy.
I enjoyed the game some, but kept thinking about what it could have been. I'ld stick to renting it if you are a Marvel fan, or have a kid who is since my 7 year old was able to play it with very little trouble. If you really want to have it sit on your shelf wait until you can get it on Amazon.com or Gamestop for $10 or free as part of some deal. And trust me it will be there sooner than you think. Or you can comment on the story telling me how much of a fan you are and why you want the game. It is a copy for the Xbox 360 and it could be heading to you.
