Stagger escape issue discovered in Dead or Alive 5 ver. 1.03 patch, Team Ninja halting Xbox 360 update until next month

Stagger escape issue discovered in Dead or Alive 5 ver. 1.03 patch, Team Ninja halting Xbox 360 update until next month Team Ninja has reported on their Twitter that an issue with stagger escapes was discovered in Dead or Alive 5 after the ver. 1.03 patch has been applied. Because of this inconvenience, the Xbox 360 patch that was scheduled for release next Tuesday will be postponed until next month.

Both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 patches are being worked on and Team Ninja aims to have them corrected sometime next month.

Check out the official statement from Team Ninja's Twitter.

An issue with stagger escapes (a.k.a. slow escapes) during Critical has been discovered in the Ver.1.03 patch for PS3, released 1/22. This issue prevents users from enjoying the intended design of DOA5. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.

As a result, we have halted the Xbox 360 update originally scheduled for January 29, 2013. We plan to release a corrected update for both PS3 and Xbox 360 systems sometime in February.

The "Hotties Swimwear" and "Zack Island Stage" DLC for the Xbox 360 will also be released at the same time in February. Our deepest regrets for the inconvenience this has caused and we appreciate your continued support.

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R v1.10 balance change list

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R v1.10 balance change list The Guilty Gear team at Arc System Works recently published a big list of changes to Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R in the arcades that brings it up to version 1.10.

Will Zeppeli, Jonathan Joestar and Johnny Joestar confirmed for Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

Today V Jump Magazine (a magazine about video games based on manga, printed in Japan) displayed a character reveal for Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle in its pages. This one reveals Will Zeppeli and Jonathan Joestar from Part 1 of the series along with Johnny Joestar from Part 7.

This notches the playable character count in this game to 18 characters.

Will Zeppeli and Jonathan Joestar do not use stands like most of the other fighters do. Rather, they rely on the initial power given in the series titled the Ripple, which is essentially a ki-based martial art. Johnny Joestar has a stand titled Tusk which allows him to fire his fingernails(!) like bullets. This particular fingernail-based power becomes more and more strange as the series goes on which allows Johnny to control time and space by hyper-rotating his fingernail shots.
