I'm up to level 11 in Dungeon Fighter. To be honest, it's starting to feel like a grind. There's just not quite enough variety for me, which I guess is true about most beat 'em ups (which has never been my favorite genre). I think if I can get another 4 or so levels tonight, I'll make it no problem.

For those that have done a Cheeve Challenge before, I just need to email them at the PlayXBLA address with my gamertag after I get this last achievement?

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD finally officially confirmed. Coming August 22nd for 1,600 MSP.

Wonder why the high price. Part of me wants to wait, but considering it's licensed, who knows how long it'll stay up, especially with Namco making that All-Stars Battle game for PS3.


I agree. This is a niche game. It's not Street Fighter. A price that high will not sell many copies.

20$ for JoJo? What the hell O_o

I'll still buy it...but damn....does it have something extra or something? Or is it just overpriced due to all the hoops the likely had to go through for licensing.

That's my only guess. Like I said, Namco's making that new JoJo game for the PS3, so it seems that they should have the licensing for said series. Considering they probably were working on the game for some time, who knows what kind of legal stuff Capcom had to go through to get not only the license from Shonen Jump, but possibly Namco as well. I can't recall a time which two companies had the rights to the same franchise to make a game at the same time.

It was mentioned it'll have both the original graphics & upgraded HD visual, though not sure if that means just a filter or redrawn sprites), plus it sounds like it'll be a port of the Dreamcast version, considering one of the achievements involves beating Story or Challenge Mode w/o using any continues. Though they didn't say if it's based on the console or arcade version.

Hopefully, considering it's only a month away until release, we'll get some more info soon.

Yeah $20 is ridiculous. I like the game, but I think I'm going to pass or wait till a sale. CAPCOM is getting quite bold lately and they are going to be losing customers by overcharging or of course, putting DLC on disc and charging us for them. :cry:

Maybe it was the only way for them to release the game at all. We don't know the details, so it's too early to condemn them for it. True HD redrawn graphics would certainly justify a bit of extra cost, even if it'll still be pricier than some people will pay for downloadable games.

I stopped at level 10 lol. Game is repetitive as hell. I would be more motivated to finish it if we know, which games are the rewards. Don't want another Joe Danger copy haha.

Ya, judging by what keeps showing up on the trade thread, the rewards have been awful.

That being said, I've always wanted to complete at least one of these Cheeve Challenges, and this is my best chance yet (well last week was my best chance, but I was out of town so I couldn't get the 1 Spelunky achievements I needed).

I'm at 15, pretty close to 16. I got a bitchin Katana which has made things a little bit more fun. But yes, it's repetitive. I wonder how close I am to the end.

I now understand the weekend cheeve challenge is really a challenge. I am already feeling the sting of the grind to level 20 on Dungeon Fighter Live: Fall of Hendon Myre. The grind, I kind of expected from a Korean MMO-ish game, but I am really noticing the "free to play"-ness quality, and even as a huge fan of brawler games, Dungeon Fighter still lacks for me.

Now I hope to get two more achievements from Iron Brigade on Sunday, and I hope they are not as time consuming. I feel it would be asking too much of a person to play 10 missions with me, so I guess it will have to be getting silver and gold on all the missions, which sounds like a pain especially when I am awful at tower defense games the first time I play them. Just a little over 24 more hours left and I don't want to tap out when I am just 2 achievements off. If I had known how time consuming the challenge was, I may have preferred to tackle my backlog at my normal pace.

I do enjoy Jojo's, and I was quite hyped about the announcement. Yet now with the 1600MSP price, I am feeling the sting of my money no longer stretching far on Xbox. I already feel I made a bad decision on a uncommon purchase at full release price of Dungeon Fighter Live: Fall of Hendon Myre knowing I paid for a gimped version of a free game, which I learned recently I do not take as much enjoyment as someone told me I would of the game. I even passed on Spelunky, which is also a free to play gone paid on XBLA. I guess it is unfair for me to compare getting a 1600MSP card to buying an iTunes card, but I remember Bulletwitch had free costume DLC and stage remixes for 20MSP a stage, which made it seem like a Microsoft points card seem to allow me to get a lot. Now with XBLA titles and some DLC reaching price points of 1200MSP-1600MSP, my one 1600MSP card seems to tell me "you only get one thing."

In the end, it was my fault for making a bad gamble on a title to pay full release for. I may still go for Jojo's, just because it's Jojo's and I enjoyed it back in the day.

I picked up Dungeon Fighter last night and I'll be giving it some more time tonight. I can see how it could get grindy after a while but I'm a sucker for anything resembling an RPG.

Here's a tip to save anyone else from the same frustration: don't keep playing immediately after purchasing it from a trial version. It will not save your progress! Exit the game and relaunch it to start your character. :(

I see a lot of you talking about the playXBLA site again. Are they running an achievement thing for DF?

You still have a long way to go to finish the game. Getting to level 20 and finishing the regular dungeons is pretty easy if a bit time consuming. After you're done though and you unlock the King's road stages things get much harder. I'd stock up on resurrection stones if you want to finish the whole thing. I picked up 75 stones yesterday. From what I hear about the last dungeon I'll be using a lot of them.

I'm to the 2nd to last level I believe, just hit 20. I don't anticipate spending much time with the King's Road stages.

And for those still considering buying it, I'd say wait for a sale. It's a decent game, but it gets super repetitive.
