That looked like Lei-Fang behind the guy.

Anyway, looks good to me! Pretty awesome. Though that much slowdown for the "cinematic" sequences could be a bit distracting after a while.

Hit sparks need to go, and I'm worried about the cinematic sequences becoming too intrusive and annoying.

But otherwise, my 2012 most wanted right here

Yeah, I noticed this on the dashboard too. If you look on the Inside Xbox tile it's a preview to DOA 5. I couldn't post because I am a filthy Junior :(


It looks really good, I will pwn anyone on Gaf who wants to try to take me on when this game comes out. Come at me bro.

Oh how the times have changed from when everyone hated DOA (when it was xbox exclusive), but I'm glad everyone's excited about DOA5. Looks the the studio in general has been focusing on these cutscene-like, cinematic angle type of gameplay. Just hope it doesn't get in the way of fighting. Looks amazing!

Random thoughts :D

1) I do not like what I am seeing. It is more like "hey, I heard you liked wall bounces, so we put a wall bounce in it, added some layers of things you can bump into, enjoy", and I do not like it.
2) The looks/visuals are great though. In for the boobs!
3) If two regular fighter fights on a rooftop with heavy metal pieces, one gets kicked into that yellow mass of iron, and STAYS THERE! No, the building wont start to fall apart, lol :D

I love DOA stages. Best stages in any 3D fighter period. I wonder why no one else follow their lead in that area. I would freaking love a Tekken with stages like that.

I'm starting to get motion sickness from the 'dynamic' camera angles... well too early to say. But hey, I do like what I'm seeing.

Shit, I've loved DOA since number 2 on the Dreamcast. And after playing that, picking up a copy of the first one for PSX. I prefer it to Tekken all the way.

I love DOA, but I need the trademarks. I heard they're cutting back on the violence and skimpy outfits. I REALLY don't want this to turn into something as boring as Virtua Fighter.

Eye candy loses its flavor over time. When the novelty of DOA5's stage destruction fades, what's going to be left over?

From a competitive perspective, the dev team have their priorities wrong if they're more concerned with graphics than gameplay. Flash is fine, but look at this DOA5 footage and compare it to Soul Calibur 5. The latter game is fairly light on cinematic spectacle (still looks fantastic, though), but it nails the two things that really count in a competitive fighter: the system and the netcode.

SC5 will be alive in the tournament scene this time next year, and the next, and probably the next. All I want from DOA5 is to be able to say the same thing.

DOA has always been style over substance, so this is a natural progression of the series.

I for one am excited!

Looks pretty cool. It actually looks different which is a good thing after all these years, but it may be a little too crazy with the camera angles for a fighting game too. I'm glad they did something to change the faces too. From what you see of the faces, the girls don't look quite as much like plastic dolls now.

Most people never considered DOA a competitive fighter. I don't see why they should start catering to the people who cast it aside years ago because of that. I'm just looking for something to play with friends on a casual level and it looks like it can deliver on this part.

This.

If you want a serious fighter, play Soul Calibur 5 or something.

Yes, my non-gamer friends like playing DOA more than any other game I've shown them. It's just great dumb fun.

Would be nice if the event triggers for the stages were dynamic. Like sometimes it won't trigger or sometimes it would only trigger a certain amount of the destruction. Anyhoo looks great!

Fighting games haven't done much for me recently, so it's good to see the DOA series take its character modeling and environmental insanity to the next level. DOA Dimensions delivered a really nice fighting game, so this is a must buy for me.

Er, that looks nice but looks jarring if you're playing, seems like your taken out of the action too many times.

I just want the normal fighting from 2,3,2U,4 back. I don't know where they want to go with this game but so far, nothing they've shown has been exciting sadly.

I'm still worried about how fun this is gonna be. I don't care about the potential competitive scene. I don't care about how much stuff they change, for the most part. I just want a fun game. That's all I want. This is not inspiring any hope.

The lack of a demo only makes things worse.
