"Story mode is nothing but a wank bank material"

Surprised you got away with that one.

As soon as I saw who the freelance reviewer was, I *knew* what it would say/complain about before even clicking the link... and was spot on

I'm sure we'll hear Dave's thoughts on this weeks podcast.

Edit: not a criticism of either review or reviewer, just an observation that the latter tends to get picked to review titles of questionable sexist value. Tongue

I think Lauren was super kind to it. I played it the other day and I don't think I've been so dismissive of a fighting game since Soul Calibur III.

(Not that I'm saying I don't like Lauren's review, which I think is a fair and decent review)

Eh, Netherrealm Studios' titles are the only fighting games for me - ever since the ravesty that was DoA2, DoA 4, Soul Calibur IV, and 2D arcade releases (such as Skull Girls) - all of which have disappointed.

The original DoA was a fun title to play - the only such game in the series, unfortunately.

Actually I started playing it and was enjoying the awkward porno cut scenes as Dave was hating it Grin then I kept playing and... well the problem is that it's so porny that it makes no sense! Shame because DOA was more fun when it was that tiny bit more subtle.

They do say the tease is always more exciting/evocative. Wink But hopefully Injustice won't feature bikinis/overly scanty cladding for its female roster.

Just out of mild curiosity, Lauren, did Dave ever blush/look sheepish playing scantily attired female fighters wih you, or did he pick male ones to avoid any potential awkwardness? Tongue
