    Oh I wouldn't even bother to argue further, tbh. It's clearly up to taste. It IS however kind of annoying how hard people are hitting on Alpha-4. I mean... I don't like the idea either, I just drop its case as a) its pointless to argue b) I find it understandable, but it's kind of annoying how everyone just keeps bashing the same subject.

    Good point. Well even though I have my doubts, I really do hope TN proves me wrong and she ends up being a completely new fighter worth her character slot.

    It's just that it's completely lame. Ever since the game was announced there have been tons of requests and ideas about new characters. From boxing and sumo dudes to korean chicks but instead, we get a third Kasumi. In my short experience with DOAD, one of the most hated things was that there were three different versions of Kasumi. TN needs to understand what people want because they seem to be ignoring a lot of requests when it comes to content (outside bikinis) and gameplay. And I don't think that's a luxury they can afford, they're not Capcom. We all know how TN works, if anyone here honestly thinks this Phase-4 thing TN is using to mock us will play much differently from Kasumi and A152, they're fooling themselves.

    What I'm most irritated about is that they clearly stated DLC characters would be free before vanilla released. They even gave reasons behind it saying characters AND stages were part of the gameplay and needed to be free. This is the reason why Zack Island was free in vanilla and Haunted Lorelei was given to us for free as well in Ultimate. Charging us for Marie Rose is like laughing at our faces. Especially to the ones like me who honestly want to play her.

    This too has become a moot point. She will cost money regardless of how many times someone brings up the pre-vanilla statement and, personally as someone who wants to main MR, I don't find it unreasonable at all that she's paid DLC and this is something that I will support TN for hoping they will continue to make DLC characters if it's a success.

    Well bro, not everyone likes being lied to.

    Like me, you are a DOA fan so I'm 100% sure you've engaged in arguments with friends and other FGC players defending DOA. One of the points I always brought to the table was that TN said they'd never charge for DLC content that affected gameplay. Unlike Arksys, Capcom and others, now I end up like a fool because TN lied to us.

    No matter how big a fanboy you are, Team Ninja LIED to our faces and that's undeniable.

    Team NINJA never said there wouldnt be paid DLC characters, they said they don't think it's fair. but what really would be unfair is the Team working on a completely brand new character only to just give it away for free, it doesn't really makes sense to me. Team NINJA even said they're trying to make her price as reasonable as possible.

    This is also why I'm more hopeful for Phase 4 (about as hopeful as I could get about a kasumi clone. XD) If she was free I can almost guarantee you she'd play almost exactly like Kasumi and/or Alpha with 2 cloak costumes and that's it. When moneys involved (and TN wanting to keep the arcade scene going) you can bet Lisa's pasties they're going to put some work in her twerk.

    As a side note I hope she gets the DOA2 outfit as a nod to the original clone.

    Wow, you guys sure know a lot about a character who doesn't have any videos out for yet!

    Seriously, wait until you see her in action before you condemn her! For goodness sake can't you just wait?

    Yeah I've been saying this since they announced her. Seems pointless to form an opinion of her when all we know is that she looks like Kasumi. From the pictures, she does look like she's got unique moves that Kasumi doesn't have, but it looks as though she's still got the oboro throw.

    There's no doubt that she will share some of Kasumi's moves since they do share the same fighting style. However, I don't think TN are stupid enough to introduce a new character who looks and plays like the Kasumi already available to us. Especially if they plan to place a price on her head. Nobody would purchase a character we already own.

    For this reason, I believe she will be a unique character. I'm curious as to her teleport attacks, I love the dark mist effect she has going for her. It's a great contrast to Kasumi's cherry blossoms.

    It's a shame you can't have them all dancing to Gangnam Style. That would be hysterical.

    No need to be so melodramatic, TN are most certainly not "laughing at our faces". If you really want to play Marie then a less than $10 price tag shouldn't stop you. Surely you aren't that poor.
    Considering all the time and effort that goes into creating a new character, I think the price is very reasonable. Asking for her for free seems pretty ungrateful to me.

    Or at least, reasonable with respect to what DLC costs in the game.

    1 Marie Rose is the equivalent of 3 outfits or 2 private gravure movies. Looking at it from that perspective her price is incredibly cheap. lol XD

    I could see you guys bitching about a paid DLC if the character was super expensive. I mean I jokingly once said that Tengu should be paid DLC at a cost of $59.99, now THAT would be kinda unfair (except to Tengu fans) but seriously. I can't see this DLC pack being more than ~10 buckazoids, so don't get your tighty-whities in a bunch.

    What pack are you talking about exactly? Marie herself is $6, most costume packs are about... $12. If you're referring to the combined pack of both the character, and the costumes... it'll probably be around $15. To be honest the saving amount isn't going to be crazy, it'll only be a small amount like "Purchase both in one, and save $2!" hahaha.

    I doubt sincerely that TN will have the balls to charge more than $2.00 per outfit. There's only 5 outfits in that pack. The ones you're talking about, like the Tropical Sexy are $14.99 for 14 outfits. The Legacy costumes are $9.99 for 9 outfits. Do you see the trend they have done? Since there are only 5 outfits in the pack, I can't see the pack being more than about $6-$8, and then you get a discount for mixing the two up.

    Oh ok, so it'll probably be about $12 then. I don't see it being cheaper than that. She comes with 4 costumes + the additional 5 so I can see it being around $12-$15 but we'll see I guess.
  20. ManekiNeko

    Just my take on it, $12 is possible, but I think if they say "$5.99 for Marie Rose", "$5.99 for the outfits" and "$9.99 for Marie Rose + the outfits" they would attract a lot more people. For some reason, $9.99 looks so much cheaper than $10.00. (actually, it's called psychological pricing, but you get the idea.) They'd sell more at $9.99 because people would think they can get it for under 10 bucks (even though some states now charge sales tax on those purchases.)

    I think $15 may be too much.
