Dead or Alive 5 is charging $25 for these new costumes

How does Tecmo Koei celebrate Halloween? Or really, any day of the week? With skimpy outfits! Skimpy outfits that they hope you'll pay $24.99 for. Yes, you read that right. 28 costumes for $25. The "special" pack released to...

Impressions: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

"If at first you don't succeed..." is an interesting business model, especially considering that Dead or Alive 5 wasn't really a "failure," per se. However, try, try again Team Ninja did, and we are now treated to a third version of this particular entry in the franchise. When it all boils down to it, does Ultimate really make that big of a difference?

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is going free-to-play

Though it is a perfectly functional and fun fighting game, Dead or Alive 5 didn't exactly set the fighting game scene ablaze. It sold well enough at least, but Team Ninja plans to breathe new life into the game by making Dead...

Dead or Alive 5 has those jiggle physics you love, more
by Brett Zeidler

At E3 last week, there were a good amount of new fighting games. Conrad and I made our rounds to all the booths that had fighting games to show off, and Steven Hansen eventually joined us as well. Here we made our way to the Tecmo booth to go hands-on with Dead or Alive 5.

As you'll see, Steven discussed the finer points of the game with me. The important stuff, if you will. You know, like how you can see veins popping out where they matter, insane jiggle physics, the sexy lingerie, and the new see-through clothes technology. Okay, we actually talked more about the fine-tuned mechanics and new interactivity with the stages, but I had to get you to watch somehow, right?
