Today Dengeki Online published a rather extensive interview with Dead or Alive 6 Producer Yohei Shimbori, who addressed the current state of the game.
This game is already down to $40. Also, I bought the full game digital delux version. Then when they updated it changed my game to the Core Fighters version with all the DLC. Fuck them. I'll never buy another shit DOA again.
I enjoyed my time with it. But it's the first DOA game where I didn't spend countless hours trying to 100% it. Lack of a decent story mode, the survival mode being kind of lame, no reason to really try to grind out levels, and removal of some of the more interesting level designs of the last game just made it less interesting to me. I played through it and got most of the SP trophies, and then just couldn't care anymore. Might play it some more when I have friends over or something.
unlocking costumes was BS.
I'll buy it on sale when its re-released for the PS5.
I paid for this game. Instead of downloading.. You know.. a game. I downloaded a 'core fighters addition' with 30-40 DLC installations. It was insane I thought my Xbox would never stop with installation notifications. That's no way to release a game. The whole thing was broken into separate packages.. Every Fighter, costume, Story mode.. All of it separate installs. I get they have some kind of F2P thing going on here, but I'm just not about that.
Wow thats really stupid, i just bought it physically, no issues here besides the late arrival of onlune lobbies. I will say while i really like the game and its mechanics there are certainly aspects that feel half cocked like the campaign and insanely limited costume selection compared to previous entries.
I bought it physically too, but every fighter was still a separate install....only 4 fighters were on the disc.
One huge problem was they tried to play both sides- the dedicated fans and the whining authoritarian fraids who would never buy their game in the first place. I wish they had the online done proper. There are matches that are 5 bars yet feel like the laggiest of all- as if it were asynchronous gameplay. I am counting full second-long+ input lag in some cases and the juttering just ruins a game built on countering. Im waiting for a price drop but i already plowed through most of the gamerscore on core fighters in a day and a half. I think in this case a bit of a grind would actually have for once incentivized me to buying the full game at MSRP
Greed. Thats all its down to. Its a pattern in alot of games now sadly. Before the game is even out they parade the so called deluxe edition without a shadow of a doubt comes with the season pass that grants you content that allegedly dont exist yet.
Add topless mode to it. There u go....
I’d buy that for a dollar .
*drink out nose* HA! Sadly tho, that’d probably increase sales dramatically.
Greed greed greed. Oh well. I know at least 3 idiots who bought the game full price and also the "Season 1 pass".
I guess the weebs didn't return the jailbait again aka marie rose
That BS season pass price and the fact the online was so poorly done on launch are two big mishaps. A smaller reason is the amount of ingame fighting you had to do in order to unlock a costume at launch (thankfully been changed now).
Well, first they tried to pander to SJWs by removing some of the things that made DOA, DOA in the first place, that alienated a chunk of their fanbase. Everything else they did after that was to nickel & dime whoever was left.
They put the jiggle back in, and made it pretty ridiculous and over the top that it was actually distracting. Last game wasn't exactly great on this, especially the Vita version, but it was more realistic than whatever they did for DOA6.
To quote a dsp meme the greed is massivey strong.
