Dead or Alive 6 has all of the essentials a good fighting game needs, and yet is let down by excessive downloadable content.
It look just like 5 with no real difference lol I'm gonna pass on this. I have tekken 7, soul caliber too satisfy my fighting thirst.
There's an entirely new mechanic in the "Break Gauge System" that they've touted since the beginning, couldn't have looked very hard. And what exactly did Tekken 7 and Souls Caliber do so differently from their last games? a slow mo feature in tekken? and a similar special meter mechanic in soul calibur?? not really a game changer either.
As a super fan of the series, it peaked at 4. The "new" mechanics aren't very new in comparison to other games that already went there. The arenas are shitty amd way uglier and less inspired than what we saw in 2, 3, or 4. Despite the new system, it felt like characters now have smaller rosters of moves. I'll get it just out of my history with the franchise since the original game was in aracades but only on sale.
Ironically, SC6 is literally SC4 with an uprez The same goes for T7, it barely looks any better than TTT2 and it lacks content such as endings from Ttt2 I'm not advocating DOA6's cash grab tactics, in fact i was hyped for. The game until the news came out about no lobbies and i passed on it
Game itself is OK. The DLC is a cash grab, which is why it feels like it.
Buy the game ignore the season pass, that's what I did.
Of course dlc for dead or alive 6 is a cash grab just like most games that are out now
Don’t even get me started on this game. I just downloaded a 1gb patch HOPING that they finally put lobbies in the game but NOPE! So wtf was this patch for?
I thought the season pass was a cashgrab till I realize it has 70 costumes in it. This would be like 350 if each costume was sold for $5-10 like other fighting games like SFV do.
Think it has two characters in it as well. I got one of them through the pre-order bonus, although I like the design of the one I didn't get. Personally, I don't care for characters to be put behind DLC. Its one thing when it's years after the release of the game like in DOA5, but just seems greedy when they do it at launch. Luckily, the characters I like to play aren't behind a paywall.
All DLC is cash grab. Only expansions are worthy of respect and a few extra dollars
... BECAUSE THEY'RE CHARGING $90+ FOR A SEASON PASS!!!!
Because it's specifically made to capitalize on thirsty nerds and basement dwellers ?
That is thumbnail though... it’s very symbolic in a way with how microtransactions and excessive DLC is handled
