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. You don’t need 6 attack buttons and an intricate combo system to make a solid fighting game – I played DoA2 with friends for years and we still encountered new animations and scenarios sometimes when attacking sides/backs. It was actually better than most modern fighters since it was about the exchange of blows, blocks, throws and counters rather than who can get the first hit off to chain into a 50 hit combo for half the match – that’s just recitation. Sad to …

    I loved all the Mario Bros games, before they were even “super”, but 64 killed it for me. It was insufferable. 3D platformers are an awful idea. That’s one reason there’s such a return to 2D platformers now. I’ve tried some later Marios like Galaxy too, but… it’s just a chore.

    That’s why I didn’t get a WiiU and sadly can’t play Splatoon… They dropped the Wii so fast and hard it was still on shelves (they’d just launched a refresh!) when they killed all the online features. I mean, if its shelf life turns it into such a rental, then just lend me the hardware for free or fee and I’ll pay to use the software. I’m not buying it outright for a quick fling.

  • Virtual Reality: “Come Explore Edo Japan!”:
    I’m so curious why Ooishi there has a black eye…

  • Virtual Reality: “Come Explore Edo Japan!”:
    Yeah… Granzella(?) had a nice Edo village with games and everything. Run around fighting oni with your cheap starter shinai etc.

  • Urban Legend in Limbo Trailer Introduces Inaba:
    As I understand it: Kaguya calls her Inaba, and maybe Tewi and any other bunny girl the same. Udongein or Udonge is her most popular name, but is just a pet name Eirin uses. Reisen is her only real name… which of course makes it confusing later when Reisen shows up. I’m guessing Rift isn’t a bit familiar with Touhou characters, saw the usual “Reisen Udongein Inaba” and went “ok, Japanese name order would make the last word her given name…”
