Just randomly got $7 from Microsoft they must know I`ve been warming up to them lately... *looks over shoulder*. On a related note, though, I noticed they finally updated the listings on the store for all Xbox and Xbox 360 BC games to be in line with regular XBO listings. I think they`re gearing up to add more games to BC soon, pushing BC as a prominent feature of the next Xbox.
https://store.steampowered.com/app/953310/Trajes_Fatais_Suits_of_Fate/ I've been checking in on this upcoming KOF-style Brazilian fighting game to see how it's doing, and looks like they actually put out a beta demo a few months ago and I had no idea. I tried to run it on my crappy laptop but I can't get past the first loading screen. Anyone here try it?
Additions to XBO's BC list has been dormant for a while, I think, so when I read this I was hoping they'd announce some new BC games at the Xbox event that just passed, but nope. I think there's still a good chance we'll see DOA1 to DOA4 on XSX tho.
So now that I can't finish DoA2:H*C cuz my PS2 is ded, and I just finished with DOA3, I've moved onto DOAXBV next (these games released in 2000, 2001, and early 2003 respectively, wow). Man I forgot about the pressure sensitive controls. Playing 3 matches of volleyball each day in the game against confident opponents actually has my arms sore :O
Wow, I had completely forgotten about this, but (US) DOA3 literally had nothing in terms of unlockables or single player rewards whatsoever, aside from the endings gallery and Ein, eh? That's probably why I hardly remember playing it... This game could really have used an Ultimate version...
Anyone here have any experience with PS2 hardware issues/repairing? My PS2 slim struggles to spin discs, sputters, then stops spinning. I hope it's not a side effect of using swapmagic too much or something. Dammit, just when I was so close to being done with DOA2 Hard*Core too.
So, I've been playing (well, was playing) Hard*Core (DOA2H Japanese version) and one of the times I was playing through Ein's story, suddenly I saw a dialogue line from Ein I had never seen before between Ein and Helena. I didn't realize what had just happened until it was too late and didn't get to read what it said... I'm sure I wasn't hallucinating. Anyone know anything about this?
Anyways, I'm still getting killed by DOA2H's "AI", this time trying to unlock Kasumi's last costume in DOA2H for PS2 the legit way (50 wins in survival under default options), so I'm feeling pretty beat up. Safe from covid tho. On a side-note, seems some of the unlocking info on the net for DOA2H is incorrect.
If you ask me, we're actually in WW3 right now. It's the world vs the virus. The whole world has been, is, or will be affected by this over at least this year and maybe the next, and nothing will ever be the same. Once the world gets this under control, I think society will have changed, the way we do things, the technology we use...
9/11 was the defining moment of my generation, until now.
Huh, videogame-related april fools news seems kinda weak this year. The Box Boy Final Fight spoof is probably the best I've seen so far. This is the only (legit) fighting game related one I know of so far, anyone else see anything good?
Today would have been Akira Kurosawa's 110'th birthday. If you don't know who that is, he was a classic and massively influential film director. Even if you haven't seen one of his films, something you have seen or played was influenced by him in some way, including Nioh and even Segata Sanshiro (Sanshiro Sugata).
