There are More Fighting Game DLC Possibilities than Overpriced Costumes

DualShockers writes: "In 2013 video games are platforms. A new title releases and within months or even mere weeks a wealth of additional content is available for purchase for said title. From characters and costumes to games modes and story campaigns, all kinds of DLC is available for all kinds of games. Except for fighting games, that is. The typical bulk of DLC released for fighting games includes additional colors or costumes. Just ask Tecmo about Dead or Alive 5’s $100+ in add-on costumes.

Let me make it abundantly clear that there are far more interesting DLC possibilities for fighting games than costumes and characters." (3DS, BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend, Capcom vs. SNK 2, Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, Persona 4: Arena, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, Street Fighter x Tekken, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Xbox 360)

How do you justify 100 dollars in Costumes......really? Who would buy that? Thats a new game and a controller. Add 20 and you just bought 2 new games.

I don't know. I'm just here for the boobs.

Come on man! Think about it. Think about all the bikini DLC and skimpy outfits you can dress all your fighters in. Those DOA girls are a sight, so don't tell me you don't think about it!

Isn't that sight worth a 100 dollars?

DOA just hasn't been the same ever since Tomonobu Itagaki left Tecmo. There wasn't any DLC bullshit when he was in charge of Team Ninja. Remember when Tecmo's slogan was 100% Games?

yeah i really hate these pointless half naked costumes for characters aswell, i dont play a fighting game for the half naked women i play it to kill the other mother fucker.
KonsoruMasuta  +   347d ago
Nobody buys a fighting game for the half naked women. They're just the cherry on top.

DLC is a big joke and is rarely used for anything worthwhile

Next will be DLC boob jobs. I would also like to see full nudity as a DLC option.
KonsoruMasuta  +   347d ago
Oh god!!! Just thinking about full nudity dlc......

its funny because you use to be able to unlock new costumes by beating the game with the characters. the replay value right there so its blatant that theyre just trying to take you money
Juste_Belmont  +   347d ago
You can still do that in DOA5. There are so many costumes available that it's actually kind of absurd that they keep adding new ones, but you don't have to buy them and they gave away some along with the Zack Island stage for free. I don't have a problem with costume DLC for fighters, it's the extra characters and the gem system that Capcom used in Street Fighter X Tekken that seems more like a rip off to me.
