Dead or Alive 6 - Discussion

I might give DOA 6 an shot. There are couple of things I like & dislike. I wonder how long will free to play version last.



How can this game compete with the DOA5LR which has a thousand dollars (or more) worth of costumes, SEGA, SNK, and Tecmo guest characters and many other crossovers from other brands? They really fuck themselves when they decided to go all out. Also it’s funny how the director was like “Sorry guys, we’re taking a long break” and then soon after that they announce DOA6. Even if DOA6 has a big road map they’re going to lose out on many sales thanks to DOA5LR simply existing. And I highly doubt ESport will pick this up and have a great turnout UNLESS Temco throws in a shit ton of prize money in the pot.



… What? By focusing on what matters, you know, the gameplay? MVC3 didn’t have the characters people liked from MVC2, but it was a popular game with the fans nonetheless. And we don’t know if they will do more guests and crossovers costumes yet.
Where did they say they are taking a long break? I remember them saying they were ending support for DOA5.

MvC3 was a differnt beast though. First time in 3D and all that takes quite a bit of work compared to the move from DOA5 to DOA6. Plus it featured vastly different characters while DOA6 basically just cut a bunch and added two newcomers.

Unfortunately that’s the way forward for fighting games. Slowly build up the roster with DLC over the years and then start with just a few characters in the sequel to do it all over again.

So, it looks like we’re getting Mai back, and maybe one more character.



It’s probably gonna be Terry, but I’d love for it to be Nakoruru just because I think her bird would make for a unique experience in a 3D fighter.

It’s going to be SNK heroines Terry.



Fixed that for you.



Wish SCVI also had something like this:



Not surprisingly, Christie has been nerfed. Lost a launcher and some mixup options and she doesn’t seem to do good damage. All she seems to have left is somewhat decent frame data.



It is funny that I am more excited about last nights’ discovery of Dead or Alive 2 Ultimate being well enough emulated on PC to be playable than the DOA 6 demo being released. I hope that everyone that is interested in DOA 6 is going to get as much fun out of it as I will playing Dead or Alive 2 Ultimate on a working system.

I have it downloading to my Xbox. Says my PS4 is full. I hate game installs.



Uninstall, man! Game runs pretty smoothly on my PS4 pro. You can see the difference between DOA5 and DOA6 in models, textures, lightning. I really like how each costume has like 3 colors.
I really like Rig. As someone who practiced tae kwon-do, I appreciate seeing those moves. His voice when he exerts force sounds good. Not sure how I feel about Christie’s voice yet. In her taunts she sounds too soft.

I have it downloading now. I uninstalled a few games. One of which was 103GB WTF man.



WTF. That’s big.



Game does look really good BTW. Screenshots don’t shoe the improvement over DOA5.



Mila’s Break Blow is one of the most satisfying moves I’ve ever seen. Must feel particularly rewarding landing it against Marie Rose or Honoka.


SFV Lounge: Makoto is coming for sure. F2P definitely. RIP Pertho's doggy

I’m guessing most people who don’t rematch do so because they feel that they lost due to lag (regardless of whether or not that’s the case). Most of the time, I get rematches with people who have 4-5 bar connections.

Set it to Japanese and just imagine she’s evil Sailor Moon.
