Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 DLC proves monarchies rule

DLC fit for a king (of preorders)

This March 5th, Americans will be getting the totally bitchin'-looking Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 first, whereas the rest of the world gets theirs on March 8th. That's a clear advantage, one might say. However, when we go by the truly infallible barometer of fortune known as "preorder DLC", the power is clearly stacked in nations that at some point recognized a monarch, in this case Japan, Australia, and most of Europe. 

According Facebook reveals from Namco Bandai and intrepid image-hunting from the fine folks at Saiyan Island, Japanese players will score two Naruto costumes fashioned afterDragon Ball Z's Goku and a samurai, a swimsuit costume for Sakura, an ANBU uniform for Kakashi, and alternate-universe renditions of Hinata and Sasuke as seen in the Naruto: Road to Ninja movie. Like Japan, Europe and Australia get the Dragon Ball Z and samurai costumes, but in place of the other four receive a swimsuit for Tsunade, a schoolgirl outfit for Sakura, a kimono for Sasuke, and an ANBU uniform for Itachi.

And for Americans? Only the Dragon Ball costume has been confirmed so far. Do you regret rebelling against the crown now?! Then again, I'd say the smart money's on this DLC popping up for North American gamers in the form of retailer-exclusive handouts from the likes of GameStop, Best Buy, and others, rather than segregating by region. With a month to go until release day, there's a lot of time for Namco Bandai and its retail partners to work things out.

Holy shit, App Store. The copyright infringement is real. I didn't buy it, because I'm scared it'll make my iPhone explode and because the comments say the game's a generic zombie title with fake and misleading screenshots.

Playing Halo 5: Guardians, got REALLY invested in this one match. It was intense from beginning to end and I was using A LOT of Power Weapons because it was so fun. We were literally seconds away from victory when the internet cut off. So disappointed. :(

Fuck it. Fuck Blighttown. Fuck it's poison blow dart campers. Fuck the mosquito freaks. Fuck the fire-breathing bitches. Fuck the lack of visibility. Fuck it's pitfalls. Fuck the fact that I'm going back after 5 minutes of self-loathing.
