After playing DOA5, I've realized DOA6 is just not good game. Options are just gone. I found myself hoping I could break hold my way out of things too much. It's a bad crutch mechanic. SS wasn't terrible in 5 if your character had a quick option.
Working in a bank, i’m consistently seeing sick people come in and out. Theres hardly anything open and most people have been excused for a period of time from paying essential bills. Whats so difficult about staying home while sick?
