Commercials from the Past: Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball (2003)

VGW: "Alright, alright. We all know what the Dead or Alive series is most well-known for (hint: it isn’t the gameplay or fighting mechanics), but when a game is so hypersexualized, it’s rare that a developer or publisher so blatantly and readily admits it. Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball was that admission from Tecmo and Team Ninja, as the title completely did away with any hint of fighting, and just nonsensically threw its busty female fighters into the middle of an island paradise with plenty of ways for the physics engine to be shown off."

So glad the devs are trying to take their characters seriously for a change instead of treating them like pin up models. The fanart will take care of that. It always does.

Blah; they're not real women, it's just math :P

Original ninja gaiden for me. The very first one release.

darthv722107d ago

Is there a reason you don't want to play Ninja Gaiden: Black as that is the first game but improved and is already on the XBO bc list.

Immorals2108d ago

Mechassault 2 with online servers pls

Where in the F is Spliter Cell MS!

They have at least 10 games from the og xbox/360 gen that would make excellent xb1/scarlett games. MS just dont like making sequels unless its Halo, Gears, Forza, and recently Ori/State of Decay.

Sciurus_vulgaris2108d ago (Edited 2108d ago )

MS doesn't even own the Splinter Cell IP, you should be directing your first statement towards Ubisoft.

Concertoine2108d ago (Edited 2108d ago )

JSRF
Fatal Frame 1 and 2
Splinter cell games
Silent hill 4
Gun valkyrie
Outrun 2

So many good OG xbox games

iNcRiMiNaTi2108d ago

I'd be happy with the Otogi games, brute force and conflict desert storm. Maybe some full spectrum warrior too

Top 10 Worst Spin-Offs

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "With the right amount of creativity any game series can be successfully spun-off to deliver something fresh and exciting, as the 10 games we honored a few months back as the best spin-offs ever showed off. Well today we’re looking at the other side of the coin at the spin-offs t hat may have intrigued us once but when they released we just wanted to go back to the way things should be and forget that the idea of expanding upon established game worlds ever crossed our minds. So today we are calling these terrible games out, hoping that they can serve as cautionary tales to the pitfalls of trying to spin-off a beloved franchise."

Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball was actually a pretty fun game.

Valkron12313d ago

I’ve got 1,2, and 3. Had to import 3 from Japan, and I don’t even like volleyball

Yeoman792313d ago

The only game I ever platinumed...

ChrisW2313d ago

DOA Venus Vacation is probably the best... But also the most restrictive in terms of modding.

Rangerman12082313d ago

Didn't think Extreme Beach Volleyball was that bad. If anything, the PsP was probably the worst (imo anyway).

Also, some other spinoffs I would also add on the list are Akiba's Beat, Slashy Souls, Banjo Kazooie N&B (not terrible but I'm pretty sure everyone wanted a third game, not some racing spinoff), LBP karting (not as good as Modnation Racers), MGSurvive, Resident Evil Survivor, Pacman 2 Adventures, Pokemon Channel, Hotel Mario, Street Fighter The Movie game, Twisted Metal Small Brawl and Guilty Gear Overture.

Top 5 inappropriate video-games

IM PLAYIN discuss five of the most inappropriate games released in recent years.

"I’m a fan of having fun. And yes, maybe, on occasion, I’ve gotten a little rowdy… perhaps even raucous or rambunctious. But these five games were a little too much (at times), for me at least. I like crude humour as much as the next chap, but these games take it past crude and, dare I say it, are a little rude. Here’s my top 5 NSFW video-games. Though no video-games are safe for work, you’re in a professional environment gosh darn it (unless your profession involves video-games, I might add)."

They did go a pretty far with GTA V, I really have no clue how it didn't get an AO even though it definitely met its standards.

BTW prepare for this article to be ripped apart, bombed, and sodomized.

Ginpachi-sama3109d ago

How did they go too far
