Sonic Adventure 2 was a bad game when it came out and it hasn't gotten any more bearable with time.


Stop that, SA2 is pretty all right. The GOTTAGOFAST Sonic/Shadow levels are awesome as hell, and the robot and treasure hunting levels are tolerable. And no other games have ROLLING AROUND AT THE SPEED OF SOUND, GOT PLACES TO GO GOTTA FO~LLOW MY RA~INBOW.

gotta disagree with VC5 showdown there is entirely too much DLC to make that worthwhile if my math is right there is about 10,000 points in DLC for this game

and SA2 was great back in the day and i wouldnt mind replaying it. the story is probably the stand out sonic game with a story that isnt full of complete and total cheese, crap, and terrible one liners and the plot has a little more than stop eggman to it as well as a good ending. the level design is pretty good if i have to say so.

the songs are terrible more specifically the knuckles rap songs

The DLC for VF5 is merely just costumes and doesn't take or add anything to the gameplay itself. If you're playing a fighting game merely for costumes then you're doing it wrong.

I have to disagree here...Sonic Adventure was a bad game...Sonic Adventure 2 was AWESOME!


I'll disagree with your disagreement, Sonic Adventure was great for its time. Except the Big the Cat levels ofcourse.

And all of the DLC is superficial costumes so none of it matters.

The core game is all you need. At $7 it's a steal. Easily the best 3D fighter on the system.

Your math is missing logic, as spending 10,000 points on VF5S DLC means you somehow bought all of the individual costume packs along with the bundles so that you'd end up buying everything twice. I'd guess that most rational people would first look at what's offered before deciding what to buy.

Nothing wrong with that statement lol, I DID like the first game too, despite the game was "bad" compared to sonic adventure 2 =P but that doesn't make it a bad game in general. As I said I enjoyed the first game as well xp

confused now? ^^"

...Dreamcast was so good back then...just sold my console finally but I miss shenmue and skies of arcadia =( yet I'm glad some of the old titles get a revive on the xbox!

Anyone know if Faery legends of Avalon is any good?


I liked it. It's a fairly standard (old school) turn-based RPG. Nice setting, and the level-up skill/customization was pretty cool. No way to "respec" though. You get a good selection of characters, but the whole plot isn't complete, since it was meant to be an episodic game. Not worth 1200msp, but I enjoyed it for 600. And if achievements are your thing, it's not a very lengthy or hard 200.

Your math is wrong. There are two packs that each cost 1200 points (2400 points total) that contain the entirety of the DLC, making the other packs meaningless. And it's cosmetic, not like cut characters or anything.

some people like messing with character customization in a fighting game a shocking concept i know and its still the fact that the disc version of virtua 5 has the option yet to get it i need to shell out of a ton of money on this game basically they are like sure we will offer this for whats the nonsale price? 1200 points? but if you want extra costumes and character customizing you need to fork over another 4000 points!!! its misleading and shady.

Then you might want to refrain from making suggestions for games you don't know enough about. Your math is bad if you're adding 1200 (costume bundle 1), 1200 (costume bundle 2), and 600 for the game (or even 1200 without the sale) to get over 4000 points. If you want everything, the bundles are the best options, and if you only care about one or two characters, then the individual packs are the best options. If you think it's too expensive, don't buy it and wait for a sale eventually. Nobody with an ounce of common sense would spend nearly as much as you're suggesting, so I don't see what's shady about it.

We had this discussion a few pages back, and the general consensus is that optional cosmetic DLC doesn't hurt the game. VF5 Final Showdown could easily have been sold for $60 (and it would've done pretty well in Japan), but instead SEGA made it a cheap downloadable game with the costumes sold separately. If you want to mess with the costumes so much, buy the game and some costumes. Your choosing not to buy it proves that you don't want to even play the game, let alone customize your characters.

In my opinion this is how DLC should be handled. Have the core game be cheaper, have packs of DLC for those that want everything, and individual DLC for those that want one or a little. I think more companies should take SEGA's lead on this. Personally, I never really customize my characters in a fighter, so for me now to pay for all the cosmetic extras that would be in a retail release, it's great to buy a deeply discounted copy and if I want to get those extras later U can.

After playing through the demo 2 separate times, I still can't spend 600 on it. I may bite if it ever ends up on the 200-400msp range.


Looking ahead to tuesday, what toy soldiers and cold war dlcs are worth purchasing? I dont have enough points for them all and I still need to buy the original toy soldier.


They're all fairly similar, in the they include 3 missions and a couple extra negligible goodies. Of the 3 I've played, I'd rank them:

Kaiser Battle
Evil Empire
Napalm.

I'm definitely buying Invasion on Tuesday.

I have all Virtua Fighter 5 FS, Street Fighter 3, and Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix.

While I do enjoy playing SF3 online, FS is the best value by far of all 3. It's a modern day full RETAIL LEVEL game while the rest are what you expect from smaller digital games. SF3 you have to pay for extra COLORS!@#! At least the DLC in FS are clothing accessories and other customization. It really sucks to be a Capcom fan :(

I hope other modern day unreleased games follow Sega's path with FS. A cheap digital download that has the core game with optional nongame DLC for hardcore fans.

im not saying its a bad game its probably fun enough. but using this logic i dont really see how those costumes value at so much more than the actual game is(even when its not one sale)....also i really dont use Japan as a benchmark for what sells in other countries in this case lets say America because quite frankly Japan sells alot of games that stand 0 chance in America most famously being their obsession with dating sims and well xbox doesnt sell over there but in america it does pretty damn good.

you are right the DLC doesnt directly hurt the game but if one has VF5 the disc copy and it had customizing one tends to hope features stay in the next version....also if this was a Disc game it could be 10 dollars by now.....though i am curios why this never came out as a disc game??

my choosing not to buy it is i dont want to like it then want to customize characters and have to drop a few thousand points if i want the full experience or just pick and choose individually....though the backlog could be a factor too its one of these two reasons lol

Then you might want to refrain from making suggestions for games you don't know enough about. Your math is bad if you're adding 1200 (costume bundle 1), 1200 (costume bundle 2), and 600 for the game (or even 1200 without the sale) to get over 4000 points.

theres more than two 1200 point pack bundles as i recall....its sort of the fact there is that much DLC that is somewhat annoying i dont mind DLC and i dont hate it but it can sometimes in cases like this get absurd
