Do people ever even bother buying the Joke Weapons DLC? I know I didn't in 7, they're just a waste of money.

I buy them to support the release of DLC, that's it lol I'll use them once or twice. Joke weapons aren't a bad thing, it's because we get only that, if they released a pack of serious weapon skins, people would be more welcoming of Joke weapons, I think....I would appreciate them more anyway.

Late but lol @ those Shu costumes. Half of them are superhero/super sentais.

Then you got WTF ones like Guan Suo (cause he totally wasnt effeminate enough before).

At least we got a few cute ones like Xing Cai's.

also lol @ Astronaut Zhong Hui.

I will buy every DLC-pack including joke ones because i would find the use for them in an possible Challenge Mode in XL, which will surely allow us to use every DLC bought before. I play those Modes a lot with a friend, even although it has no online multiplayer, and like to use every character with varying costumes and weapons.

Screw Crossbow should be for Xu Sheng imo, without a doubt!
No **** broh, it will be perfect considering it`s both melee and fire :)
Zhu Ran & Xu Sheng duo comes out? Why not? it might even in DW9! or ... maybe SF3.

Pan Zhang could come with Zhu Ran... as well as Jiang Qin. Heck It could be anyone.

Pan Zhang will come caz of Guan Xing?... haha nice joke, and stupid reason. More likely (only possibility) being added with Zhi Ran, as they have close ties and could be nice duo working together, though... they don`t really have much in common in terms of perosnallities as Zhu Ran and Xu Sheng, but it could be even advantage considering how they different were. Xu Sheng have some ties with Ran as well... so better not arguing and see what Koei decide. You and I both for Xu Sheng, when TK and Skode for Pan Zhang. Maybe even in Koei they have some hot discussion whom add next :lol:

BTW, I don`t see many people against Xu Sheng, when there are a lot of Pan Zhang non-supporters. I guess it`s because of his controversial nature, or ... novel, or something else. :sly:
If Koei chose Pan Zhang over Xu Sheng and Zhu Ran :realangry: .....

Posted Image

I would hope they'd never even discuss Pan Zhang.

If they were to give the Screw Crossbow to either Xu Sheng or Zhu Ran though I think It'll be for DW9 :) .

The joke weapons normally match some of the DLC costumes so it's nice to use them :lol:

Like Bao Sanniang in her school costume with the claws joke skin, or Dinner Lady Huang Gai with the joke club skin for example :sly:

Or Sun Quan's soccer costumes and the flail had a soccer ball and rope joke skin.

Seeing the previews of some of the joke skins, I can already guess some of the "pairings"

The spear/dragon spear and pike/crescent blade skins look very Sentai-ish. Obvious who they go to.

The IV Stand could go to either Pang Tong or Guan Ping (which means we'll probably get another medical styled weapon skin).

The gas canister and pump obviously going to Gan Ning.

The corn dogs....I dunno. Probably a DLC outfit for Others/Jin that hasn't been revealed yet (Meng Huo and Zhurong are probably gonna be all southern again). Or just one revealed already that im just not remembering...or no one. I can't imagine they will ALL be tied to an outfit, but most.

I would accept them more if they all were themed with their outfits but they are not... Gas Canister flail clearly aimed at Gas Attendant Gan Ning but Giant Hotdogs with a member of Queens Guard Taishi Ci?

Im gonna give that DLC a wide berth, it offers nothing for me. I did invest in joke weapon DLC last time round because despite in most cases being stupid as hell the final batch of joke DLC they offered for DW7 were actually the strongest weapons in the game, it was a case of like or lump it because they shafted us good and proper there.

What i want is a weapon skins pack which is rooted more in awesome and menacing designs... ive said already about these but EVERY pack of weapon skins they released last time round featured at least some daft joke weapon skins - this grated far more that it should have when it came to optional content because Orochi 3 came along and thus when it became no longer OPTIONAL i was stuck again with Taishi Ci having some of the hands down most stupid and irritating high level weapon skins i have ever seen... despite there being alternatives they could have used instead.

Some i can endure push comes to shove i suppose *sigh* as long as XL offers better weapons with grounded designs but whilst you can overlook Huang Zhong with a cupid themed bow beating someone to death with giant corn hobs was not funny even the first time round.

I won't be investing into joke weapons either this time, I find them really un-amusing and pointless. I'll get DLC weapons (the proper ones), wallpapers, soundtrack and DW2-6 Costumes only.

Well, not all the joke skins correspond to the right characters. It was the same way in DW7. The flail in DW7 was a soccer ball, Sun Quan was the soccer player. The gloves joke skin were boxing gloves, the boxer was Sun Ce.

But some of them were to the right character. Like Zhang Jiao's hippie crooner outfit and his mic-stand staff.

I like the idea and I like matching them up, but I don't think i'll actualy buy them. I never use them...so there is no point for me.

It's basically encourage use of that as a secondary weapon.

:P He may have quite a few patients.

Lately I've been wanting to call Pang Tong Dr. Giggles, but he's not an evil character.

Do they consider Guan Yinping and them like hotel staff?

As far as I can tell for the most part people were right on the money (unlike with Wu, whoops).

Guan Yinping is a female bellhop?
Guan Xing is a bellhop, Zhang Bao is a doorman.
Liu Bei is the commander of the sentai, and I can't really tell what the sentai villians are technically called.
Pang Tong is a surgeon.
Xingcai is a golfer.
Xu Shu is a snowboarder.

I can't wait for the new Koei Sim game where we have to manage our own hotels and compete with other hotels and be named the Greatest Hotel of China.

Zhang Bao Doorman +5 to tourist attraction.

She does favor a bellhop or the girl at the front desk who gives out rooms.

Would be silly, having two bellhops, Guan Yinping does have a more "Welcome, checking in?" look with her DLC.

Yinping does look pretty bellhop-y

She could be a receptionist, but he looks more like a female bellhop. If they even exist...I don't think i've ever seen a female bellhop. But it makes sense...a girl of her strength to be lifting suitcases and stuff.

This means Guan Ping is the only one who got a damn education of the bunch. Not like his blue collar siblings and the one who dresses like a fairy. Or his obviously mentally impaired father who dresses like a super hero.

And he's the one that dies? What a waste of promising youth.

:P He had to get out of paying back those student loans.

As more for Guan Yinping, I think to me it's the hat that makes her seem more receptionist than bellhop.

Makes more sense to me to see one as the Doorman, one as the Receptionist, and one as the Bellhop.

I had to think about it as well, but I know that's what she looked like. Oh well she looks good like that and I guess that's what counts. I guess she could pass as a receptionist as well.

In fairness, i suppose, there isn't a whole lot of distinct identifiers for receptionists. They wear suits and stuff, nothing fancy, so it's not really a uniform. So I guess a receptionist would've been a bad idea.

Makes sense, she could pass for one, though I always see her as a receptionist

@BlackKite:

"Evil Executive" ? :XD

I can picture Guan Ping, after a long day of giving therapy, checks into the Benevolence Hotel. He is greeted by Zhang Bao, then Yinping and Xing who carry his things to his room. Guan Ping tries to get a good night's sleep when the hotel is suddenly attacked by hordes of Liu Shans. :lol:

Let's see how to describe it.. in sentai shows, usually the evil organization will not only have a ruler, but also some second-in-commands who are often directly under the ruler. They are called 幹部 Executive Staffs or Admins. In many cases these could be females too.

Well it's not actually limited to just sentai shows though, other things like Pokemon also have it in their villainous teams like Aqua, Magma and Galactic. :hehe:
