I had a couple of goes online and got thrashed. Played a japenese person who had already played over 100 games. It didn't seem to lag that much but I need to learn the basics first. Been able to unlock a few characters, costumes and trophies as the initial single player modes that are open are very easy. It's satisfying pulling off combos and counters but I am just button bashing.|
I like the Bruce Lee lookalike and the girl with the cowboy hat and the massive tits
Dead or Alive Dimensions • Page 3
I used to play 4 online a lot, wasn't too bad, won as many as I lost, the key was alway learning the reversal window. When I get this hope I can remember it!
The more I play this the more I am enjoying it. It flows well and has some great looking moves. The chronicles mode has some really nice cutscenes. Been playing the whole time in 3d and have no problems with the slider all the way up.
I'd swear that the demo version I played had boobs that were more 3D. They were ridiculous, now they just seem mostly normal. Not that it;s why you buy the game of course.
I'm loving it though, it feels just like DOA2, down to the same menu music, and there really seems to be plenty to do. Chronicles mode seems a bit talky but I like that, and I'm fairly sure that if you keep losing on a stage it'll edge the difficulty down. Either that or I'm getting better, which I doubt
The way Chronicles introduces concepts is awesome though, I didn't know half that stuff before! The rock paper scissors style of it, and counters, and reversals all feel so fluid. I can see me getting into this a lot more. Hopefully I'll see some of you online
Pro tip: I have a shocking habit of always starting with Kasumi's PPPKK combo. I can't not do it.
Straight onto the shoulders of your assailant with Kasumi. Then that dirty crotch in face takedown she does. Love it.
Probably best not to go for the throw, best counter is a reversal. That PPPKK combo would cancel the throw anyway. Block/reverse it then FACE CROTCH! Though I'm new to this so probably wrong. I'm sure we shall see in good time as I ignore that and try to button mash constantly. I do love that throw though, bet almost everyone uses Kasumi online too.
One touch I liked is the top screen on the main menu shows a stage, but you can look around it by tilting the 3DS. Also, in figurine mode you can jiggle the 3DS to jiggle things around.
FREE COSTUME GET!
SpotPass is already sending out a Kasumi costume. My blue light on the front didn't go off, but there's an icon on DOA itself and the new costume in-game
There's also a Throwdown challenger. I bet he destroys me.
I got mines.
The throws and reversals are quite impressive. I am still getting used to it, too busy playing around with all the characters to learn the moves of one individual. Although I had a couple of wins online playing with the old guy, he has quite a simple move set so it made life a little easier.
The chronicles mode is good, the cutscenes when you get to the 4th chapter are impressive and a few lines have made me laugh. Only problem is its very easy, in fact so are all the single player modes I have tried. Except playing AI specifically on hard in free mode, thats a proper challange.
Got the first bit of dlc. It was a costume for Kasumi and a "throwdown" player to fight. I got my arse kicked and unfortunatly you only get one go.
Really? Balls, if I'd known that I'd have waited and got demolished later!

what the devil..... is this out already? :S?
Gah my copy has been dispatched, not due to arrive until the 26th
WHY AM I TOO CHEAP TO PAY FOR POSTAGE
Who did you go with? I ordered with thehut.com on the 17th as they said they had it in stock and delivered in 24 hours but when I ordered it said dispatched on the 20th. I then ordered of shopto on the 18th and it came on the 19th. Free delivery as well.
Tried to cancel my first order but they wont let me for some unknown reason. It still hasn't been dispatched yet and they havent replied to my messages.

Damnit, mine's still dispatching soon. Still, estimated delivery is still 27th at the latest, which according to some reports is the end of the availability of the Kasumi dlc, or the start of the daily DLC, so as long as I can get it online at some point that'll be nice.
It's good! Bit weird seeing DOA run at a lower framerate in 3D mode... but it looks really good in 3D!
It's arrived!!! Next day delivery with super saver delivery, amazing!
Just finished work, might try and squeeze in a couple of games before heading out to dinner.
3D TITS AHOY!!
Mine came this morning. Spent all day bashing through Chronicles. Now it's just arcade and Survival based fun. Loving the course unlocks and figurines. Chronicles is pretty nonsensical but you need to crack on through it to get the unlockables I think.
Apparently you can buy a pack of 3 random figures with 10 Play Coins - a blue circle with an exclamation mark appears on the main menu once you have 10.
It might even have been in the manual, but I didn't know so I thought I'd share.
We'll have to get some tournaments organised. Can you set up lobbies with friends or am I asking too much from Nintendo?
Yep, you can set up friends only lobbies, regional lobbies or worldwide lobbies.
I'll add some codes real soon. My brain is too addled for anything like that right now.
I will have to get someone to help with the last few tag challanges, they are very hard and the AI can be retarded.
Also you can play as the final boss but he is hidden
To play as Shiden.
When you have unlocked other character slot, all 25 characters playable,
1) Goto the Random slot in character select screen ("?")
2) Press and Hold L+X, then press A (Shiden Costume 1)
Press and Hold R+X, then press A (Shiden Costume 2
Press and Hold L+R+X, then press A (Shiden Costume 3)
Also I think you cant unlock the other bosses (Genra, Alpha etc.) until you have completed the chronicles mode
So. Do we have alist of friend codes? I've got DFAWKES'
Just posted this in the main thread but for the purposes of the DoA thread my code is
New costume update! I have 2 DLC ones now.
I seem to have missed one on the 20th. I think it repeats. It'll be a real bummer if people miss out ultimately.
This game is great! Graphics are lovely and 3D effect is ace. Better than Ghost Recon anyway which is the only other game I've played.
So much more fun than Street Fighter. Can't wait to spend some proper time on it, chronicles mode is good for learning the ropes.
Will post my code here when I get back from work.
Added opti and dfawkes.
My code is 3995-6488-3940
Feel free to add me and pm the code
Chronicle mode is alright for getting the basics but I wish the info that comes up in there could be dumped out to a text screen. It's a pain having to skip all the guff.
It's alright to button mash. Just have fun! The good thing about DOA is that it's quite easy to stop a button masher with a reversal. I love the fact that harder courses unlock. It was waay to easy from the outset. I just got beaten on the last person in 50 person survival. GAH!
