Dead or Alive Series; Official Discussion

Thanks for the memories

This topic will be dedicated to Tecmo's venerable and uber-popular fighting franchise, Dead or Alive. Feel free to discuss and post anything related to this excellent series here.

For me, I've played Dead or Alive 2: Hardcore for PS2 and Dead or Alive 4 for the 360. Needless to say, I'm terrible at both. I'm so bad, I managed to get the "Unachievements" for DOA4 by losing so many matches in a row online. People just crush the hell out of me. :lol:

My main character is Ryu Hayabusa, of course. I'm not very good with him, but he's the coolest-looking character IMO. Plus, he's Ninja Gaiden's main man!

Yay a DOA topic. I have played all of the DOA games.(1,2,2 hardcore, 2 ultimate, 3, and 4.) I own one threw four and am a very big fan of the games. Great gameplay, story and the unreal breat bounce. :wub: (Yes I love the unreal bounce! :lol: )

My fav character is Kasumi. Lei Fang is my second fav but I love all the characters and can use them well. I'm pretty high ranked in the games. In DOA4 my rank was a A+ and then I stopped playing because of some new game I bought. I still play every now and agian, can't get to rusty before DOA5. Speaking of DOA5 I hope it comes out soon. Well these are my thoughts for the moment. ^_^

He's my second main character.

My main character is that Jann Lee dude , I just love his appearance and his fighting style.

I hate those huge bulk wrestling brutes , they're way too slow.

My favorite female would probably be Ayane.

I played DoA2 as well and once played DoA 4 at a friends.

Favourite female - Ayane, definitly
Favourite male - would be Ryu Hanabusa as well, however then there was Eliot. He's not only cute, but quite fun to play with. Thought it did take me a while (seemingly forever) to figure out how to handle him to play decently ;P

I didn't really get the age-question until I tried to set it to 99 for fun.. XD

Finally a topic for the DOA series! ^_^ i've played the DOA unltimate, DOA3 and DOA4 games and even the DOAX Game for the fun of it :lol:

Anyway one thing i'd like to discuss is DOA Code Cronus i've heard so many rumours of it i want to be made, it's sounds like a great idea even though the gameplay would be somewhat like the Ninja Gaiden series i'd still like to see it happen as it would explain more characters backgrounds namely Kasumi's in this case :)

Yeah I have been wondering about that also. Dead or Alive: Code Chronos was being working on by Itagaki and they haven't said anything about it being cancled. But since Itagaki left I wonder if they are still doing it.

Well the game it self was going to focus on Kasumi and Ayane giving us a look into there history. Hmmmmm but a thought comes to mind, in the Ninja Gaiden 2 sigma Kasumi made an guest appearance which could hint at Ninja Gaiden 3 plot. But another thought crossed my mind when I saw this. What if its to hint at Code Chronos.

Ah, I remember a DOA4 topic being around before. Must have got archived.
In any case, I'm a fan of the series. I'd say it's probably my favourite fighting game series or maybe behind Tekken a tad. All the characters are fairly interesting and fleshed out and the story is pretty good as well. I love the use of Aerosmith songs in their videos, definitely takes them to a new level of epic.

I own Ultimate, 4 and DOAX. I gave away my copy of 3 to a cousin and never cared for DOAX 2 even though it had pretty freaky boob physics :P

My favourite character would have to be Ayane. Love her moveset. The quickness and the manoeuvring. Her story has been an interesting one as well, her DOA3 ending definitely has to be one of the best in the game.
I also like using Helena, Elliot and Zach along with a host of others but they're most prominent in my mind.

On another note, I was actually thinking about Code Chronus the other day. It crossed my mind while I was thinking of how to best word my paragraph for my English essay. Productivity at the max :lol:
I wondered if it ever was going to be completed. I'd love to see it done but I honestly have given up on the prospect when Itagaki left. Hopefully it's just my pessimism and it will eventually come to fruition.

Nope, DOA has not been released in any form for the PS3 as of yet. All Xbox exclusives since DOA3. However, that might change in the future with Itagaki's departure, the merger with KOEI and the attention given to Ninja Gaiden on the PS3.

DOA 4 was the first game I played for the 360 back in I think 05/06. I remember watching my friend play it at his house all the time. When I eventually got a 360 DOA4 was the first game I got. Even though I don't play it anymore I still have some fond memories of it.

Yeah DOA4 was one of the Debut games when the 360 first came out and even though there was no easy Difficulty to make the game more challenging it was still fun :D

I have been visiting Fighters Generation site for updates on fighting games for some time now. I went to see what he thought about the DOA characters and it was just offensive. He called people that like Kasumi are simple-minded. If you don't like the game why talk about the people that like. Its clear that he has really no knowledge about DOA's story line and how important some of them are in it. Go check it out and see for yourself how rude he is.

Not that I'm saying he is a bad guy when it comes to other things but this was just a little much.

I have played al the DoA games, i have to say one of my favourites has to be La Mariposa, for a wrestlers shes very quick and agile. I dont like Kokoro that much, her fighting stle was to detatched, its not smoth an flowing compared to kasumi or ayane. I hope they do make a Ninja Gaiden game for Kasumi and Ayane, cos TECMO played up their relationship a lot during the DOA series, first being enemies hen in ultimate it is later revelaed that Kasumis mother was raped by Raidou and gave birth to Ayane. So i would like to see what hapens when they encounter eachother and find out...thats if they dont already know :/

I have played 2 , 3 & 4 and my favorite characters would have to be the Ninjas and I like the wrestler Bass or something and that Zack guy as well. DOA 3 kinda sucked to me.

DOA3 was quite fun especially since there was a Secret Character you could unlock called Ein by fulfilling a certain condition plus trying to unlock the extra costumes was a fun challenge :D

I cannot STAND the guy who runs Fighters Generation. I pretty much disagree completely with everything the guy says, and dude is ignorantly biased towards anything not Tekken or Street Fighter, which is ridiculous for a guy who goes by a King of Fighters character's name.

Anyway, Dead or Alive is my favorite fighting game series without question. It's so much faster, fluid, beautifully animated, and simply funner than any other fighting game series. I own every game, including the DOAX games, though I rarely play those. :P

My favorite characters are Jann Lee and Ayane, but Ein/Hitomi, Hayate, Zack, Kasumi, Lisa, and Hayabusa are great too. In fact, I love every character besides Bayman/Leon.

DOA is a pretty good series. Though gameplay wise, it sort of lacks depth. However, I hate to admit it...it's better than Tekken.

I've played 3 of the games, from DOA2 Hardcore to 4. So far, DOA 2 Hardcore is my favorite.

As for characters...I usually use Bayman (brutal moves...) and Tina. I also like using Jann Lee, Ein (Karate), Hitomi, and Kokoro.

THank you! Its good to know I'm not the only one who feel that way. He can't look pass the boobs in DOA to see that it is a good game. Hmmmm I have t check out what he says about KOF characters. I remember looking at them a while ago and it wasn't anything bad.( At least for those I like.) I'll check it out later.

Moving on, I hope tecmo is working on DOA5. Its been way to long since DOA4. Even though DOA4 does have alot of replay value, I'm ready to move on.

I started with DOA2 for the dreamcast. Since then, me and my friends play DOA nonstop, all the way up to DOA4.

Ayane was the first character i picked. Out of everyone in the game, she really stands out (purple colors...pretty). Now she's my favorite DOA girl, and I can hold my own with her. Shamefully, my best character is Brad Wong or Gen Fu. Can't tell which one I'm better with.

I love DOA over Tekken. Tekken is a fine game, but DOA take skills and good timing to master it. At the same time, anyone and pick it up and give a good fight. Unlike Tekken, if you don't know how to play then you really can't have fun with it.
Oh let's not forget what DOA has what no 3D fighter has, 4 PLAYERS TAG TEAM MATCHES.

Here's a new topic to chew on guys - favourite DOA endings?
Personally, I'd have to go with Ayane's DOA3 ending. The emotion, the awesomeness. The music was great. I felt chills the first time seeing it.

My favorite DOA ending would have to be Kasumi's DOA3 ending. I never truly understood how hard it was for Kasumi being a run away ninja until I saw this.

On a funny side note about this ending. How nice it would have been to be the leaf. :P
