Seems like there was a pretty huge update as well that modified balance and even some mechanics from what I’m hearing and reading. Details down below:


Unfortunately for me, seems like Christie got nerfed pretty heavily. I don’t think she was THAT good and powerful to justify all those damage nerfs.

Seems like good changes overall. Especially the whole being hit while in the air thing.

Probably just my imagination, don't see it anywhere in the patch notes, but it feels like they improved the graphics at least on the Xbox One X version. Did a spectator/photo mode and it just felt like it was looking better than before. I think I used to not use the zoom button for photos before because it didn't look good but now it seems like even at maximum zoom everything looks crisp. Even the skin textures seem to look less foamy/washed out to me. Maybe a stealth update? Maybe an Xbox Insider console update helped natively improve things? Maybe it's because I was alone on Valentine's Day?

I don't know.

So is this one of those games where the girls outfits are no longer “sexy” or some shit? What’s the story? I haven’t played a DOA game in nine years!

Wait
Can you download or buy “sexy” outfits? Maybe then they’re not so prude ?

What’s DOAX VENUS VACATION and how is it related to DOAX FORTUNE and SCARLET?
It's a PC gacha game. A spin off of the DOAX series, where you don't play the volleyball, but build up stats through swimsuits and accessories. It's one of the more expensive gachas out there, but being on PC only gives them a chance to be sexier than they might be otherwise.

I wonder if they can have Tifa Lockhart DLC as special guest star to promote the upcoming FF7 remake. :lollipop_smiling_hearts:

Dead or Alive 6...


...is dead
Lasted about a year, whereas DOA5 made it through two consoles, three revisions, and several years of content. Hopefully they do a better job with DOA7 (if one exists) and don't learn all the wrong lessons from this.

That being said, this could also mean they're getting ready for a revision of DOA6. There are additional costume slots to be fulfilled, and I think they said they wanted to do more VV characters than just Tamaki.

Fucked over customers with a shittier game than doa5 last round, recycled overpriced dlc and now already dead support. Thank you TN.

I really enjoyed the fighting in this game. The original costume unlock system, costume parts, recycled overpriced DLC really dragged this game down. I hope they learn if we do end up getting a DOA7.

I am baffled that we still haven't even got a doa5 last round version with every single costume in one package yet.

I thought this was possibly an April fools joke, but I know companies rarely play tricks like this especially with the public. This could mean no more DLC or even updates in general which would indicate that the game is no longer being supported. Sure, they made some despicable mistakes, but I hate to see yet another great 3d fighter bite the dust or lose support.

DOA is... Alive?

"turn the page on this chapter", "we look forward to returning to fight another day."

Sounds a little more hopeful this time. DOA6U/LR on next-gen consoles would be pretty cool with added features like tag and other stuff. Could be they're suspending work on DOA6 current to concentrate on that?

I can only hope that they're only putting on hold their DLCs' plan, because they're prepping to announce an updated version of DOA6 for PS5 and Xbox Series X...

It would be such a shame, if the DOA series, too, follows in the footsteps of Virtua Fighter, and ends up in Davy Jones's locker....

Sounds like it. Hopefully... We get a revision on the new consoles and PC as well.
I still can't support their costume nonsense though.

I don't know if anyone has tried Dead Or Alive 6 yet on XSX but it's quite revelatory. In the options menu with the game switched to "graphics mode" you get super crisp 4K visuals at 60fps. The only dip I noticed was during the seaside stage but that aside it seems really solid and a great upgrade over previous console versions without even needing a patch. The core fighters version is free too, so the price is right!

Yeah the BC looks better than some native games. Try out Ninja Gaiden Black and 2. The Team Ninja Art style holds The fuck up. PS5 looks better on next gen so far but Xbox has got it beat by a long shot on BC.
