Too far down the uncanny valley for me. I’ve been hoping they’d put out DLC to fix the faces and unmottle their skin, but they haven’t, so I’m not touching it – I already have DoA games where they haven’t screwed up the fighting mechanics.

    I played Evil Zone/Eretzvaju, but it didn’t make much of an impression on me when it was new… Actually I think I found it pretty bad, but maybe I’m confusing it with Gowcaizer… either way, I only rented it.

  • Dead or Alive 5: “And You Thought It Was About Fighting!”:
    Thanks. I agree DoA2 was the peak.

    It is, but since that’s just “Zange-chan” it’s also kinda useless. Adding her name, 朝倉ことみ would help.

  • Darkstalkers Artbook A True Delight:
    Underappreciated is… not the right word… If you look back 10-15 years ago, Morrigan was like, half of the female cosplay out there.

    Che—-n! She even has fangs… お持ち帰り~! That Tao Paipai guy has it down too! Even the faces he makes are in character.
