Costume-Specific Boob Bouncing Coming to DOA5

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

y'know, I've always preferred DOA's much more streamlined controls and better over all presentation than Tekken, but I have to concede the point here. I'd be so much more excited if Tecmo had announced that DOA5 would have even tighter controls, more responsive counter systems in place and had rehired Itagaki to lead the team. Boobs are fun to gawk/stare/drool over, but ultimately, I liked DOA2/3/4 because of their gameplay. This does nothing for me.

I'm sort of happy they're releasing it for PS3. Haven't gotten a DOA since 2.

Screamarie:
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.

Isn't DOA mostly about rock hard man bodies and sexy women?

And I don't know how large a penis would have to be to "visibly bounce" in your pants, but I have a feeling that arousal would kill you.

@Rest of Thread: Not sure I understand the big drama behind games that decide to prioritize sexuality.

Some games go balls to the walls on violence, others on story, others on sex, or in the case of Tetris, Geometry.

Why is there no up in arms drama about new "violence physics" but people always act noble and uptight when breasts come into the picture.

Feels like people put sexuality too high on a pedestal, just reads unhealthy :/.

I've liked all the DOA's, some of my fondest memories was playing DOA: Hardcore with my friend and trying to counter all his attacks into grapples. I couldn't really compete on Soul Caliber, but DOA was just slow enough to work for me.

I liked Tina and her Father, I forget his name at the moment. Heck, I might be wrong on her name too.

GangstaPony:
If it were up to me I would slap these perverts right upside the head!
Hey morons! Why don't you focus on making great games and promoting video games as a healthy form of entertainment/art instead of using it to play out your sick fantasies. What they code with one hand and masturbate with the other? People already have a negative view of games so thanks for proving that yes WE are sexually repressed 14 year old immature kids.

Thanks guys.

I've said my piece. And now I leave.

Pointing out a cliche while acting like a phenomenal one yourself is pretty funny.

Just because there is still a large group of puritan minded people alive and kicking does not mean that any group should feel they need to operate within the social norms of that single group.

Had they specialized on bone breaking physics would it be any better? The fact that violence gets a pass but "Sexuality" is immature is mind blowing. Have we really become that deeply ingrained with violence?

Its Tina and her father, Bass.

Huh. Could've sworn Itagaki wasn't with Team Ninja anymore.

I see no problem with this.

Risingblade:
I see no problem with tits.

Fixed it for you.
------------------

Why is there an argument going on in the comments? Why do you do this to me, Escapist? How could you take something as fun as boobs and trample upon it with bullshit? My tears, you guys. They're flowing.

All of this fake outrage and smug scorn is both entirely predictable and extremely boring. Who cares if the game's "boob" engine is getting an upgrade? It's hardly any more shameful than harlequin romance novels. Terribly written, borderline pornographic books displayed across the front of every supermarket and Walgreens book section that are directed entirely at females. Publishers just know how to pander to their core demographic, be it for interactive media or otherwise. Stop acting like it's killing the damn industry or seriously besmirching its reputation. Team Ninja has been doing this for a looong time and clearly it has been working out just fine for them. I doubt Fox news is going to swoop in and suddenly say "OF FUCK, THEY'VE SPECIALIZED THE JIGGLE PHYSICS! THIS IS FRONT PAGE NEWS YOU GUYS! PUT ON YOUR OFFENDED FACES, MILLION MOMS IS GOING TO BE ALL OVER THIS SHIT!!" If you personally don't like it then go play one of the many other fighting games available or campaign to get a more balanced level of pandering in the games. There you go.

Still makes it a boring fighter. The moves aren't interesting, the character designs aren't unique or memorable, its just......bleh. Everyone knows what a Hadouken is. We know what Soul Calibur is, we can at least recognize the guy with the demon wings in Tekken, but this? Girls with big tits fighting.

Guys like tits, I like tits, but tits don't make a good fighting game. They don't even help to be honest. If I want to get hot and bothered over tits I'll watch porn like a normal human being.

Andy of Comix Inc:
I don't quite understand why so many people hate Dear or Alive. It panders to a male audience! Lowest common denominator entertainment! That's fine! It's not sexist to aim for that audience. (Is it? Is it sexist to aim for a target demographic? If it is, please enlighten me so I can roll my eyes at you)

Its just some people aren't the lowest common denominator. Some people have standards. Its just facepalm inducing to see a bunch of devs go "HAHA BOOBIES! BUY OUR GAME CUZ TITS!!". I like tits, but I'm not going to act like a 13 year old about it.

Am I surprised? No. Team Ninja is doing what it know how to do.
Although in DOA4 I preferred the quick glimpses of Ayane's underwear when she does a backflip in the school girl outfit. But Jiggle Physics are nice too.

It just means you aren't the target audience. If the game meets its incredibly modest goals then its a winner for those who want that stuff, right? You can just ignore it. There are people who will want "BOOBIES LOL TITS" and they will enjoy the game - that's who the game is for, and those people could be crab people who live underground for all we know and it'd still justify this game being made.

Nice to see the games industry still driving the medium forward with inspiring innovation.

God I wish i could have seen the design meeting when they came up with this. So many bro-fists. Also the depressing thing about it is somewhere right now a 13 year old is getting really excited about this

...And this is new how? Seriously, I don't think Team Ninja has leaned by now that boobs do not work that way!

BX3:
Huh. Could've sworn Itagaki wasn't with Team Ninja anymore.

While they did get rid of him because of the sexual harassment claims, by getting rid of him they lost a good deal of talent. By most accounts, he was damn good at video games and damn good at designing them too.

Just as there are fan service movies, so shall there be fan service games.

Pfft. Yeah, fan service for.... who exactly?

Talk to me about fan service when there's more scenes of dudes making out in an alley.

Who the hell said fan service has to be fair?
Team Ninja is making a fan service game for people attracted to bouncing boobies.

There is no rule that demands you provide equality in fan service.

Sooooo dudes then? Lesbians don't generally like that sort of thing either. I wouldn't call it fan service just more like ... I don't know "guy service". Like they're standing right beside you giving you an HJ while you're playing. *stroke* *stroke*

Look Team Ninja, we all know you secretly want to make porn, so just do it. This repressed sexual desire is not good for you and it's getting awkward for the rest of us.

totally heterosexual:
Well atleast they get something right.

Hooray for optimism!

j-e-f-f-e-r-s:
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.

If you don't see a difference between your example and what Team Ninja is doing, I am thoroughly disappointed. Seems to me like you just wanted to take a jab at Valve here.

You know what? I follow the news, and it's wars, death, murders, draconian laws, more wars, more deaths, David Cameron, more murders... it's pretty depressing reading is all I'm saying.

And then occasionally something like this comes along to cheer me up and take the edge off.

Thank you, Team Ninja. Thank you for making my life that little bit better.

I don't think there is much that Team Ninja doesn't know about boobs. I believe they hold "research sessions" with particularly well-endowed young ladies from time to time. You know, for the sake of realism.

They really are "the dirty old uncle who tells unfunny jokes and makes everybody feel a little uncomfortable" of the games world, aren't they?

Hey hey, don't go knocking Team Ninja, they're all about story. Didn't you see the Metroid Other M? Yes it was heavily borrowed from Metroid Fusion and crappified and yes the voice actors sucked, and sure they made Samus a weak little girl vs her amazing bounty hunter self.
And Ninja Gaiden with it's wide array of women who played a big breasted part in the story!

But they have RESPECT for womens.... breasts. :U

Hurray for boobs! I've never really liked the DOA series, but you know...boobs.

Duuuuude, there's PLENTY they don't know about boobs.

Does no one remember DoA Volleyball?

Paragon Fury:

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.

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.

I'm pretty sure your supplied images were created explicitly to portray men in a state of sexual arousal. Bulges, large, hard nipples... it's difficult to argue that they weren't created to appeal to masturbatory urges.

image
Sexualized, multiple partner, homosexual fantasy or harmless children's entertainment... hardly.

At least they've never lied about it being all about the bounce. Others have said such things were incidental, or ancillary. These guys know they're just there for the spectacle, and they stopped pandering to anything else a long time ago. Now, front and center for each new release is what's front and center. It's hardly fanservice, any more, since the game seems to be designed from the bounce out. That's more or less why people still come to the series by now, isn't it?

...

No comment.

There's seriously nothing I can say about this.

Damn it Team Ninja. Why don't you just make porn already? We all know that you want to. Just sell a porn mode as age-restricted DLC a few months after the debut as by then most of the sales from horny young teenagers will have dried up and you can finally put porn out there.

I have no problem with all this jiggle physics but I do have problems with you being a big cocktease, Team Ninja.

I don't know they seem more like a closeted gay relative that everyone has already figured out is gay.

Team Ninja says they're just here to make games and all that good stuff but the way they act and all the posters of muscular shirtless men they have say otherwise.

There is something to be said about interacting with it vs. watching it.

But at the same time the internet has actual porn on it, and even if you want a specific character, Rule 34 has got you covered.

Imagine if you worked for Team Ninja, and someone at a party asked you what you did for a living. "I program differences between bouncing tits" sure is an answer not many people will have heard before.

I don't understand jiggle physics in games. I mean, yeah, I would look, it draws my attention, but it doesn't trigger any mental or physiological responses in me, i.e. not a stray thought. It's like I'm waiting for something--anything--to happen, but of course, nothing does.

lol, it's true ;p

They should make a sumo game and apply all this jiggle physics to fat men's bellies. For legitimacy.
