Costume-Specific Boob Bouncing Coming to DOA5

image

Fighters still apparently unaware of sports bras.

Developer Team Ninja has never hid its passion for boobs, and it will be taking extra pains in the upcoming Dead or Alive 5 to assume that its heroines' bikini-fillers will be bouncing more accurately than ever before. Now, the deadly female fighters in Dead or Alive will have different "bounce" depending on the different costumes they wear.

In an interview with Famitsu, director Yohei Niibori said that not only would the movement of the game's heroines' Tahiti coconuts vary by character - a feature that the series has had for several games now - but it would now also depend on what outfit they were wearing. The level of clothing transparency would also vary between costumes, and you can make of that what you will.

Producer Yosuke Hayashi said that while released media thus far has all included entirely new outfits for the DOA crew, the game will certainly include new versions of the series' past costumes. Kasumi just isn't Kasumi without that blue thing she's always wearing, after all.

Since the very beginning of the franchise, the one constant in the Dead or Alive series has been its love for bazongas. In the original game there was actually an option in the menu to adjust the bounce (in DOA2, cleverly disguised as the "player age" slider), and it's only continued from there.

At least you can't fault the developers for being honest.

There have been few time when the phrase "milking it" has been more appropriate.

The "player age" slider never seemed to make a difference to the 'wobble factor' in my version of DOA2. And trust me I tested this to exhaustion; I was 13 at the time...

Upon hearing this, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 designers looked up, noted, "Alright, whatever," and then went back to work on gameplay.

I love a pair of boobs as much as the next guy, but I'm getting a little tired of this.
I'm happy to not be the target audience here, but if I was, I'd feel a little insulted.

Stay classy, Team Ninja...

Stay classy...

Cleary a feature that is crucial and essantail.

OT: Ok, I won't deny that I like some fanservice but this is just silly. I hope that they also put as much effort in the gameplay.

Well atleast they get something right.

Hopefully Tekken X Street Fighter shows better treatment to fans than either Team Ninja or Capcom has recently.

Okay...Team Ninja I will not get pissed about the boobies....

IF you come out with a DOA Men with the same number of sexy male characters as there are of sexy female characters in the original DOA, clothing transparency, different costumes for each guy, and clothing specific bulge bounce, and lots of fanservice.

Then we're even.

In other words, Team Ninja never learned their lesson.

Good lord they're embarrassing.

Sounds good to me. If there are going to be prominently displayed breasts in the game, I'd rather they spent some time working on making them look like they should. It's all part of the visual design of the game and, like it or not, it's something that all games (especially those made by Team Ninja in the past) get called out for by both players and reviewers when it's done wrong. I'm not sure if I can recall reading even a single review of DOAX2 that didn't mention the hilariously over the top breast physics in that game.

And for those praising Namco for being so amazingly classy: have you forgotten what the female characters wear in Soul Calibur or perhaps those totally classy SC5 ads?

If you'd been 99 at the time you may have noticed :D

Sorry.

also, is there any way we can make the titties racist? Just to get the game more publicity? :D

Well, at least some of my faith in DoA5 has been restored.

But still going to have to wait and see Helena and Mariposa in order to be sure.

I don't really care for the boob bouncin since DOAX2 decided that each bewb needed a mind of it's own...

I'm still uber excited for DOA5...since it's one of my fav fighting games evarz...easy to get into...difficult to master (especially since they changed the timing for counters in DOA4)

You know, as much as they love to live up to their image, I can't help feeling that this whole association with Jiggle Physics has gone too far with Team Ninja.

I mean, the original Half-Life had atrociously bad jiggle physics, and I believe was the first 3D game to do so. But you don't here anyone mention this when the great and holy Valve are mentioned.

Hell, I'm pretty sure that Soul Calibur overtook DOA long ago in the shameless T&A front. It just seems silly that a team that's churned out some of the best hack-and-slash and fighting games in gaming history has its reputation defined by bouncing boobs.

I hadn't heard that one before.

But... a man's bulge doesn't bounce. It's just there, I suppose if he's wearing very LOOSE clothing it might swing around a bit. The whole point is realism right? Aren't several of the men in the series shirtless and handsome and/or grizzled? This little obsession of theirs has made me never really get interested in the dead or alive series as a whole even if the gameplay was good I'd feel to silly playing it.

Oh, Dead or Alive...don't ever change.

I mean sorry, I'm still not gonna buy you but...I appreciate what you're doing.

...why am I talking to the franchise?

The bounce in these games isn't really realistic, no. It's the bounce you'd get in situations ideal to creating breast bounce.

So, yes, the male equivalent would be this:

I never really got what the audience for these games is. Are they for people who don't know the primary purpose of the internet?

I'm probably going to go deaf and mute repeating myself on this, but I'll say it anyway:

A man's penis is not important, nor a focus in male sexuality. As long as he has one, and it works, that is all that matters.

You won't ever see it focused on, because it doesn't matter.

I wonder how long before they turn to self parody. I mean really, you see a news story about DOA you know it's about boobs and you know not a single fuck will be given.

Yeah but DOA combines titties with raw violence, in other words pure testosterone.
It's this in interactive

I have a question.

This is for the ladies (not men who like men, because it's a different situation with you guys).

For the vast majority of heterosexual men, the less a woman wears, the sexier he might find her to be. A lot of heterosexual men feel this way, as which when women go 'why are women hypersexualized', men go '... there are a ton of dudes with their shirts off'.

Ok. So... how would you guys design a man to make him hypersexualized? I don't think a bouncing bulge would really do it, so what will?

Daystar Clarion:
Stay classy, Team Ninja...

Stay classy...

lol ....

glad you said that, cause there's no way i could say that with out breaking into laughter.

cause you know this is what people are talking about when they talk about 'moving the industry forward'

Funniest easter egg ever. Cause that's something you'd never notice in-game without cheats given how fast they move.

Sounds cool but im still not interested in the series sorry.

Captcha: hobby-horse oh you escapist oh you.

Im not sure the series was ever anything but a parody of fighting games.

It's less about hypersexualization and more about objectification. The super-sexy buxom girls fighting in heels is a male power fantasy. The shirtless ripping-muscle brawny dudes is... also a male powerfantasy. Guys want both; it's not female service as it is a different kind of male fanservice.

For female fanservice? I don't know, it depends on the lady. But rippling beefcake isn't necessarily it.

There's about a dozen other fighting series out there, let them have fun with their jiggle physics, it's not hurting anyone.

Sorry, what?

There's a good reason why the artwork of Tom of Finland is considered hyper-sexualised, whereas your average image of Superman is not.

Hint: it's in the bulge.

I'm guessing you're of the school of thought that an alpha-male build and plenty of muscles are what define the sexualisation of males. Sorry, no dice. If you want a man to look like a power fantasy, you give him prominent pecks, biceps you could bend steel round and a superhero outfit. If you want a man to look like a sexual object, you show lots of skin, put emphasis on nipples and bum-cheeks, and most importantly give him some bulge.

If the penis isn't important in a man's sexuality, why do so many men wangst about whether theirs is big enough? Why does pornograpy put an emphasis on men hung like stallions? Why is there the common idea perpetuated through our society that you need to be a hung man in order to properly satisfy a lady? I mean, it's not particularly true, but you see it implied and perpetuated in the media nonetheless.

OK, sorry. Need to bookmark this right away for a combination of lulz and that occasional spike of testosterone moment.

Shine on you crazy diamond!

I wouldn't want it any other way.

Thing is, for every time I hear someone--ears bleeding, throat hoarse--bring themselves to repeat that, I do hear of someone who's attracted to men who finds the penis, the crotch bulge, and the swingin' cod to be erotic fixtures. Granted, there are more people who find erection sexy than flaccid junk, but there are people perfectly into both.

It's an interestingly divisive issue. One lady will say, "Dick doesn't matter. I can look at penises all day and not really give a shit. Muscles, maybe. Buttocks, sure. Penis? Meh."

Another won't be able to get that sentence out because she'll be too busy looking at penises.

Which I'm fully aware. I haven't even touched the Team Ninja or even the DOA part of it.

I simply feel it's much easier to give those who like the female form fanservice. Low-cut shirts and jiggle jiggle. But I'd like to know how to create females-who-are-attracted-to-males fanservice.

Captcha: Have an inkling.

you know what? Captcha becoming sentient, I can almost accept. The purposefully spooky font just doesn't have to occur.

And for the record, Captcha, I really don't have an inkling. I don't know what women would consider fanservice.
