I just got the new DoA3 add-on disc in the new Xbox magazine today. The extra costumes are pretty cool, but the new intro is ab-so-friggin'-lutely amazing. It's widescreen, and actually looks better than most DVDs that I have. It part of the demo, so everyone can see it.

*hugs his Xbox and Sony TV*

No, Michael, just extra bounciness.

I'm curious as to whether this 'upgrade' will be featured regularly or whether it's a one-shot. Seems a little unfair to XBox owners if this issue of the mag is the only one to feature it ever. Do they mention if it'll be on next month's disk too?

I see Ebay in our future Brian.

Anyone else own the Nights Christmas expansion? That was a one shot deal as well.

Is the magazine for sale at game stores like Electronics Boutique or Babbages?I don't subcribe to these magazines because I can get the info on the net for free and the demos don't interest me since by the time the disc comes out I'll have either bought the game or played it and decided whether I like it or not. This DOA3 upgrade thing is kinda cool though and I wouldn't mind getting it.

The magazine is for sale pretty much everywhere. You can usually pick up a copy in most grocery stores, 7-11, etc. so I imagine it would be at any gaming store.

No, it wasn't. It was billed as a 'one shot' but it was widely available after the fact. Stores had copies to give away long, long after it got released - that's why I'm asking.

June 2002 (it streets in May).

I got my copy (I'm a subscriber) and watched the new intro to the demo. Not that impressed, and as someone mentioned above, these new costumes and intro don't improve the serious flaws the game had.

Well,

Firstly I found the game extremely shallow. I mean seriously. I beat the game in 20 minutes, and found little replay value.

Secondly, beyond the graphics, it was another beat-em-up with hardly any strategy.

I loved...and still love the game. All fighting games are used almost strictly as multi-player games for me and this one is perfect for that. I think that DOA3 has the right balance of depth and playability. An experienced player can really get into the complicated combo moves but the game can still be enjoyable for beginners. Again, I am speaking about the multi-player aspects of the game.

I haven't played DOA for a while now, but I loaded on the new outfits and decided to give it a spin (btw - HOLY CRAP! The new skirt outfits for Kasumi and Tina's new outfit are worth the price of the magazine right there! Sorry to sound like a horn-dog freak, but I wasn't expecting that!). I will say that I enjoyed DOA a lot. I have VF4, and there is no doubt in my mind that VF4 is the champion of 3D fighting games (JUST beating out Soul Calibur), but DOA3 looks and sounds INCREDIBLE! I do hope that VF4 gets ported over to the X-Box because when you compare the two visually, there is no comparison. DOA3 is GORGEOUS!

Yeah, I just love the control of VF4, but in graphics, comparing VF4 to DoA3 is like comparing a PSX fighter to a PS2 fighter. I still haven't seen anything that touches the graphics of DoA3.

DoA3 is about pushing the graphical limit so other games catch up to them. Graphics alone can put the game ahead (sadly).

Also, DoA3 is a game where you are supposed to play it a lot, get good, then play others who are as good as you. Then, its a challenge. Otherwise, it is pretty shallow.

Ah. That would be it. I've heard that DoA3 plays exactly like DoA2, but the guy that I generally play DoA2 with is as good as I am, and our fights really do look like wire-fu movies. It's really quite impressive, actually.
