So my girlfriend picked up DOA4 for me and we returned it the next day.
(EB 2 for 1 xbox360 deal is awesome)
Neither of us thought it would be a soft core porn excuse for a fighting game lol.
While I wasn’t offended at all by the scantily clad girls my girlfriend was pretty upset over it.
It’s just kinda trashy, it’s such a great game I wouldn’t think they would have to use a T&A tactic to win over gamers. A lot of kids are going to be missing out on a solid fun fighter. I imagine a lot of other girl gamers were turned off by this game for the same reason…
I just feel like it sucks that a great game had to stoop as low as rumble roses witch sucks but has T&A to sell it.
IMHO

its nothing new and i dont think it will effect many people. why not just NOT pick the revealing outfits? it doesnt depend on T&A to sell games, that is just an added bonus that has been with the series since the beginning. its no surprise really, usually things that have an anime influence presents women with perfect bodies and skimpy outfits and has for years (sailor moon anyone?) its not trashy, its just japanese and i love it.

Too revealing? Do you need to have your dude status revoked? IMO it's not revealing enough. J/K I love the game and my friends and I actually bring our xbox's on our annual fishing trip and spend night drinking and playing these DOA games. Cant wait to get together with this one!

While I agree it could do with a bit less kinky visuals it will sell like crazy in Japan thanks to it.

And women get offended by almost anything. If it were a bunch of really fat chicks like a female Sumo wrestling league game she'd be even more upset because apparently calling somebody fat behind their back means theres something wrong with YOU, not them. Noticing morbidly obese people makes you sick.

Tomorrow she'll be throwing your 360 around because she notices its curves are modeled by the female physique and you give it more attention than her. laugh.gif

Erm... too revealing? Have you ever been to a Florida beach during spring break? I think DOA4 is LESS revealing than DOAU. There are no bikini costumes to say the least. The only real shockers were Christie's S&M outfit. But that's acceptable because it's part of her storyline (see her end movie). Besides, it's the anime culture the game stems from. Boobs and panties are commonplace in anime. Just the nature of the game. It certainly doesn't rely on sex to sell the game.

Seriously, if you're girlfriend dictates what you play then you have bigger issues than digital boob coverage.

I'll never understand why people get all upset about sex in culture... it's just flesh. Someday I'll get an answer as to why it's ok to shoot a cop in the face (M rating) but it's a crime to show digital nipple (AO rating).

I second that, and enroll in the whipped club.


Itagaki's games have always been like this so I don't know what this cat expected from DOA 4.
Remember that it was the original DOA that introduced the bouncy boobs.

Seriously crobar, you need to check your girl before she gets out of hand.
It's called conditionning smile.gif

Easy for me to say since I don't have that problem, the wifey digs females too laugh.gif
