The final version of developer Team NINJA's M-rated fighting game Dead or Alive 5 is slated for release next week, and it will bring new characters, stages and character costumes.
Little late on that whole 'not milking the franchise' thing, guys. Dead or Alive Dead or Alive 2 Dead or Alive 2 Hardcore Dead or Alive 3 Dead or Alive 4 Dead or Alive Dimensions Dead or Alive 5 Dead or Alive 5 Plus Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Dead or Alive 5 Last Round Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 Dead or Alive Paradise The Girls of Dead or Alive Blackjack There is also, of course, the turd of a movie "DOA: Dead or Alive"
I just think it's quite ironic to say they are not milking the franchise when the final version of the game (the THIRD version) still doesn't have all the DLC included.
I really liked the game, but luckily I haven't spent a single dime on it, and with all the milking going on, and will still be going on with this 'Last Round' edition which STILL won't have ALL the content included(!)... I certainly won't be buying it any time soon. (I simply play and enjoy the Dead or Alive 5 that was in PS+ 1-2 years orso ago) I don't want to support greedy developers like this with my money. If I do decide to ever pick up Last Round, I might even go for a 2nd hand version (which I usually never do), JUST to make sure this kinda constant nickel-and-diming will not be rewarded by me... even though apparently there are many others who happily pay for this kinda stuff... so I'm sure they'll just keep doing it.
You forgot to list all the DLC for Dead or Alive 5.. it's understandable though, it would take you hours to type it all.
sorry but your list contains games throughout several generations of consoles. They only put out about 2 per generation, thats not milking. i'm glad they made last round, especially for next gen console owners, many of us want to use the features and hardware the os and console provide. If sales are up, thats whats going to encourage them to make more, i hope they do.
My god this game has been milked dry! Maybe it's time for me to consider actually getting it now that it's all on disk with no more silly DLC to waste money on.
... It will still have even MORE DLC-milking, so even if you do decide to buy it, it still won't be the complete package containing all DLC-content. If you've waited this long, you might as well wait a few months longer until it's on sale for 20 bucks or something.
Well, it could have been worse. They could have made an Evolve on us, releasing skins worth twice the game cost.
not 100% sure, but doa has so many dlc costumes that it would probably cost more than what evolve has to offer.
When I think of DOA 5 Last Round 'Milking', Honoka comes to mind.
hubba hubba :D
DOA 5 LR not milking? Ha ha ha. This is 4th DOA 5 edition YET not every DLC will be in it. Sorry but if I was to get every piece of DLC for DOA 5 then I could be able to buy like 2 or 3 X1/PS4 for all that money.
those girls in DOA have been milked to death!
then in Q4 will release dead or alive 5 another last round
cancelled my pre-order for this a couple of weeks ago... I cannot be arsed with the fact it dosnt include all previous DLC, and wasnt prepared to pay out for any DLC that they released for it, so just cancelled it....
At least they're not milking as hard as Street Fighter and Final Fantasy do.
I got DOA5: ULTIMATE because I thought that was the final version...but NOPE! No thanks, I'll wait for DOA6.
