PS4 version of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round features more “realistic breasts”

February 20, 2015

I’ve been a long time fan of the Dead or Alive series, I started with 3 on the original X Box, dove head first into ‘Dimensions‘ on the Nintendo 3DS and happily threw down in DOA 5 on 360 and DOA 5 Plus on the PlayStation Vita (cue Amazing Grace).Hell, I even dabbled a little bit in the first ‘Extreme Beach Volleyball’ and I swear the Volleyball parts are actually why I played the game!.

When it came to the actual fighting  I’ve never been the best at it, I’ve tried to have as much fun as I could as someone who isn’t particularity good at fighting games. Being a fan of Dead or Alive also means I’m not stranger to some of the more “cringe” inducing elements of the series, from the scantily clad women to some of the characters looking seriously underage and…Zack.

One thing I’ve noticed is that each iteration at some point draws attention to the voluptuous forms of all the female characters, from the characters getting dirtier and sweaty during their fights to being able to manipulate the camera around them after they have won or lost(Granted that the same can be done with male characters). That stuff is really whatever to me and is something one can over look and not pay attention to. But what do you do when Sony posts up videos showing how a new software engine improves the movement of the women’s breasts?

That’s right, PlayStation Japan released a video showcasing the power of the “Soft Engine” that’s being used in the models for the PlayStation 4 version of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round. The engine makes the breast movement more  “realistic”in comparison the version of the game that’s available on the PlayStation 3.

See I could rant and rave about sexism and apparent misogyny and post up pictures of Anita Sarkeesian but you know what? this is exactly why I love the Japanese. As cringe worthy as this is, they really don’t give two shits about all the things that have become a firestorm of controversy in the Western gaming, they just keep making the games they want to make. Which I must applaud them for doing this despite the hostile atmosphere that’s become the new normal when dealing with the topic over sexualization of female characters in video games.  You can check out the video below, just make sure no one is around your cubicle or something unless you’re like me and just don’t care.

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is out and available for several home consoles and PC. If you want to go a round or two on Live or PSN, drop me message with your PSN or Gamertag!

Dead or Alive:Last Round Stream-Screenshots Galore

January 22, 2015

Earlier today the kind folks at Koei /Tecmo games streamed a bit of their next installment of the Dead or Alive 5-Last Round. Being that I’m a bit of a fan of the DOA games(Started with 3). I decided to tune in and grab some screen shots from the stream.

With an emphasis on customizing hairsyles and a plethora of costumes, Last Round is shaping up to be an interesting addition to the DOA 5 line up. Though I admit I was a bit unimpressed by how there’s a bit of an emphasis on making some of the characters like Hanako extra kawaiiI , I’m sure many a hardcore Dead or Alive player will be focusing on the new mechanics and pummeling one another online instead.

As for me, let this image of from ‘Chuck’ sum up how I felt.
DOA:Last Round will be released this coming February(17th) for various platforms!

Never Ending Backlog

November 27, 2012

A shit ton of games and gaming accessories have come out in the last few weeks-it’s crazy..as a Videogames enthusiast it at times feels overwhelming to try and keep up with the latest  trendy games-I mean in the past two months alone…

Ass Creed 3(360, why? cause AMURRICA)

Halo 4( went this route because Black ops is OK but it doesn’t take a whole lot of skills to play)

Code of Princess(3DS-Beat em up spiritual successor to Guardian Heroes)

Dead or Alive 5(Fighting, 360)

Persona 4:Golden (Why? uh….I DO have the PS2 version but…Japanese Scooby do on the go? sign me the hell up!)

Playstation All Stars(Vita AND PS3 -Why? Cause…….for the hell of it I guess)

A Wii-U with ZombieU (Why? Cause…..fuck it I wanted a Wii-U)

Pokemans Black 2-(Why?….well hell I like pokemans and since a few of my adult friends are playing I thought it would be fun to join them!)

There are also various import titles for my PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 that I’ve recently acquired as well as PC games too…that I’ll go into detail in another post.

What’s super Ironic is that with all these titles, I have so very little time to play them at all! so they’re basically just collecting all sorts of dust.

(On top of that my 360 recently red ringed so there’s THAT problem as well)
