    DoA is my favorite fighting series, but I can't say I'm to excited for 5 after the changes they've shown so far. I really do hope its a fantastic game like the older titles

    DLC on fighting games just makes me think of Capcom.
    They've forever turned me away from Fighting game DLC

    Remember the days when fighting games had huge rosters and tons of secret unlockable characters right on the disk.....that you didn't have to pay to unlock

    No, i remember when they barely had any fighters and if there huge rosters they tended to be reskins, rehashes, and broken beyond repair for competitive play.

    You must be thinking of Street Fighter, all the other fighting games were never like that (King of Fighters, Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct, Virtua Fighter.)

    Really? Mortal kombat didn't have like 5 ninja clones? King of fighters 94 to 2003 used the same sprites seeing as how it was all based on the same neo geo hardware. Virtua fighter barely had characters when it started.
    The point is, who in their right mind besides casuals want more characters? Every game that has had a large roster has always been inbalanced. Poeple will only play like a 1/3rd of the cast and playing other characters just leaves you at a huge disadvantage. The only game with a 30+ character roster that is anywhere near balanced is ssf4 ae and it took 4 versions for it to actually get there and its still not all the way there.

    Tekken games have always had sizable rosters and hidden characters. King of fighters, while yes re using old sprites, has always added lots of characters just checkout 2002UM. The only people who play with just a few of the cast are usually competitive players. People who buy the games to have fun and play with friends would prefer to have a larger cast and more modes than just 1V1 with the same 3 characters that everyone has already memorized the longest combo for

    I was not putting much confidence in this game. With all the stuff released about the game so far... at least I can enjoy that feeling of vindication.

    Played the demo tonight and I can safely say I will buy the game used when its at a budget price. No way in hell am I buying that shit new.

    Does that even have a serious competitive fan base like Street Fighter or Tekken? I don't understand who would buy something like this over popular Beat em Ups

    This would be more interesting if I knew who those characters were. I don't even know why I clicked this topic. I think I like looking at character rosters...

    Dead or Alive has lots of fans alright, I for once love Ninja Gaiden and Hayabusa Ryuu, because of that alone, I buy all DoA games, and I also like to see the bouncing action, most of their games are pretty good, try playing Dimensions for the 3DS, I for one preffer it to Street Fighter, the fights actually change stages and while it's not much, it has a story.
    From the females Ayane is my fave one, she is so hot and awesome. =3

    In case you don't know, DoA's strong point besides the good fighting is the female's sex appeal, however from what I saw in early vids Hitomi had an ugly mug, I do hope they fixed that.
