    i got it 24 hours early! preorder ftw. sucks to not be me, if you live in england.

    doesn't seem like much of a departure from 1 so far, except you can switch weapons on the fly. oh, AND YOU CAN SLICE THE SHIT OUT OF EVERYONE AND SEND LIMBS FLYING ALL OVER THE PLACE LIKE A TOTAL BADASS!

    I pre-ordered online at bestbuy and they sent me an email saying it's backordered. Worst of all they canceled it but now the invoce says it is a $100 for the wall scroll and it already shipped. Hate Best Buy!:mad

    Went to go pick it up at Best Buy yesterday cuz the ad said that it was guaranteed in stock after 2:00.

    Apparently the guaranty means they would call me when it actually does come in.
    I haven't seen anyplace else with it yet.

    It sucks to not be Smang. :(

    Knowing how obsessed I got with perfecting the first one and black, I'm afraid to venture into that territory again.

    Too many broken controllers and too much high blood pressure.

    it feels easier than sigma to me, but i am only on the second level.


    after you remove some limbs from people, you can press heavy attack to initiate a baddaskillcombo move, and they're all pretty damn sweet. also i forget the name of those charge up attacks (hold heavy attack) but a full charge will cause Ryu to launch and enemy, and literally dice them in the air. ninjas ftw.

    Ultimate Technique?

    Yeah I went around to a bunch of shops yesterday, THAT HAD THE FUCKING GAME IN THE CABINETS BEHIND THE COUNTER and they refused to sell it to me. Bastards.

    Yeah. Right then I wished I had a Ninja sword, I would run up the wall and shoot back down, impaling the shopkeeps onto the floor, and while they writhe around a bit I'd spin around in a somersault/cartwheel thingy and then chop off their heads. Then, when their essences float out of their bodies I would charge up, draw them in and then take out everyone else in the shop. No witnesses, no Ninjas.

    Sigh. I wish I really had ninja powers. I'd abuse them so much.

    well i hope said parents dont try to sue tecmo after thier kid sees all the swordplay and gore and tries to emulate it. allthough they'd have to get in line behind Itagaki right now.

    I didn't get to play very far last night.
    I just got to the part of Toky that looks like Kokoro's stage from DOA 4 (nice touch).

    But that Spider-ninja that kidnaps Sophia, was that Frank Welker?


    No kidding -that drama is pretty crazy right now.
    I look forward to Tecmo's releasing DOA 5 without Itagaki and then his eventual quotes about how the game is no good.

    Frank Welker? i hope not - its pretty bad acting so far! although the movement of the lips whilst talking is the best i've ever seen in a game.

    i hope they don't make doa5, i want my 8000 matches on 4 to count for something! besides, they never released that promised dlc, whatever it was going to be.

    I'm probably wrong.
    He only had that one line.

    But, Michael Bell was Muramasa in the first game -even though his only dialog was variations on "Hmmm" so you never know.

    The DLC for DOA4 was pretty frustrating and ironic considering that DOA3 had DLC before Xbox Live even materialized.
