It was a great date night for me. Wasn't expecting much, but ended out to be a beauty. As it went along it was got better and ended out to be an all-nighter. Happy ending indeed.
I am glad there was the variety I asked for. Multiple genres and formats (DLC, XBLA, GonD) have already been represented. There are repeats for me, but there are plenty of great new discounts for me.
I have to get Dustforce at this price because I was so hyped for it before it released due to its skill-based platforming, co-op capabilities, and the music for it is excellent. Since I got Street Fighter X Tekken recently from the last GonD discount (figured it was inexpensive enough), so the unlock key for the remaining roster on discount pretty much completes the purchase.
[EDIT: I swear the Dragon's Dogma DLC went on discount before, because I have it. Also I really wished the Lost Episode 1 & 2 DLC were discounted as well, since those are the only I lack for Asura's Wrath because they've not been on sale, wish these were]
Is there a complete pack I can buy for DOA5 that gives me everything (characters & costumes)? I just have vanilla DOA5.
I can't keep track of all this sh_t.
From my post before date night, I did mention I desired DOA5U DLC to get discounted, and I am pleasantly surprised some actually did go on sale to my delight! Unfortunately, at this time there are still DLC planned to be released for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, so there is no complete/final/ultimate pack. Also, I believe the original Dead or Alive 5 is not forward compatible to the the later released Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, however DOA5U does accept the DLC purchases from the original, but the "Complete DOA5 Costumes pack" for DOA5U on discount now contains almost all of the original's DLC costumes.
I will have to buy the Complete Casual Collection Vol.1 and Complete Casual Collection Vol.2. However, I think the Ultimate Private Paradise Set I think are just pretty much the creepy voyeurism mode of ye ol' beach volleyball games opposed to costumes and I am debating if I should buy it (I probably will) and I already got the Complete DOA5 Costumes the last time they were discounted. Now it would have been nice if the new DOA5U characters were discounted, but I think (hope) there is a possibility a complete pack of all the new characters will be available once they've finalized the roster. I too have too much trouble trying to find the right packs to buy amongst all the divided DLC of DOA5U, and that's why I am glad a post on CAG which lets me know what I will buy for DOA5U,
[EDIT: Ack, but to truly answer your question, for the original vanilla DOA5, I think your best resource would be this site about the DLC]
- Super Street FIghter II Turbo HD Remix is $5.09. Is there any point in getting it since we had a free Street Fighter game through Games With Gold already?
For me, each Street Fighter game has something interesting per iteration. HD Remix while IMO possessing uglier art than the original (personal aesthetic preference to older pixel art, but blurry in this version and only for characters) I choose to stick with the new art, but it is my most favorite version: ST (Super Street Fighter 2X). Also on discount is the way more complex Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike - Fight for the Future which is good, if not for Ken, Chun, and maybe Yun.
Basically, I guess to best diversify your mainline SF library on the 360, I'd say go with HD Remix for 2, 3rd Strike Online for your 3, and you already got a 4 for free with Games with Gold. You get the best versions of each mainline release ^^. [EDIT: Also, do not ignore the Darkstalkers on discount if you like fighting games. That series has IMO the best character designs in any Capcom series.]
[Also, I prefer Shadow Over Mystara over Tower of Doom, primarily because I use the thief (rogues do it from behind) which was newly introduced (Shadow Over Mystara is the refined sequel). Both are very good brawlers IMO, and I love how there is an item/stat underlying layer in the game's play mechanics]
Since its a capcom sale might as well post this for whoever hasnt seen it
This is awesome news i loved the RE remake on gamecube
So knowing its going digital for 360 and xbone is really cool
Thanks for a dose of hype! I loved it too, it toyed with my expectations very well and totally worth me purchasing the game again. Now I hope they also choose to give me my dose of Rebecca Chaimbers by releasing Resident Evil 0 as well!
[EDIT: Bloomy> I apologize for my lack of responsibility when I post, I do not anticipate the random links (which are the first thing that comes to my mind) to be clicked on, and I realize I should understand with great power ... well, at least I didn't respond with some Rule 34 to RE6 or something earlier =P]
