Dead Or Alive Paradise Limited Edition Has "Secret" Stuff

We figure you drooled all over the keyboard when we posted up the new details and trailer, which is why we're bringing you the titillating Limited Edition info now.

Dead or Alive Paradise, the PSP game featuring a healthy dose of DD bouncing and based on the Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball titles for the Xbox 360, is slated to drop in North America some time this spring. If you're interested, you might want to go whole hog and bring home the best assortment of animated beauties via the special Limited Edition. According to European site NextGamer, this package will feature a Kasumi figure (likely not inflatable and life-sized; sorry), a Secret Picture Collection, and a Secret Live Recorded Voice & Soundtrack CD. Now, I have no idea why the latter two features are "secret" but I'm willing to bet that some of those pictures and a few of those "recorded voices" are a tad bit naughty. Of course, it's all implication and innuendo in the game; it's not straight-up softcore porn and full-on nudity. Some of the bikinis will bring you close, though...

So anyway, here it is. This may only be for the European regions based on the source but we imagine North America will get the Limited Edition, too. Awfully tasty, no?

Haha, your writing style cracks me up Ben, but in a good way. Not sure what to think about this. I'd really rather them make a new DOA fighting game and bring it to the PS3 this time.

LOL!

This bit though, left me smiling wryly....

"Of course, it's all implication and innuendo in the game; it's not straight-up softcore porn and full-on nudity. Some of the bikinis will bring you close, though..."

If you've ever been on a European beach in summer, you have to chuckle silently about this. Topless bathers in bikini bottoms so brief as to leave almost nothing to the imagination, and if the wearer was to stretch a little too much, or slip when walking, your imagination will have no more work to do. So this game and it's innuendo laden bikini clad figures are really nothing to get concerned over.

Honestly, it makes me laugh. Even beaches in the US are covered in young women wearing bikini's that contain less fabric than an average pair of men's briefs. Good lord, most of these women have to be on intimate terms with their waxer just to wear their swim wear. I just can't take it seriously when there is any concern over a game like this.

LOL, plastic surgery has had horrible effects on women's expectations for their own body, and on men's expectations of what is 'normal'. Although you might not see exactly the proportions of these anime girls on display, you'll certainly see some ladies trying their best to do it. Don't even get me started on the beach population in Brazil and other parts of South America...

Feel free Highlander, I clearly understand what you mean hahah

I myself have been to the beaches in Brazil, just forget about the bathing suits honestly, just imagine the women wearing nothing but dental floss (credit to Bikersaint haha). But that goes for both the women AND the men lol

But like you mentioned Highlander, plastic surgery has clearly skewed men and women of their expectations for the human body. We'll start seeing a new category of size at a Plastic Surgeons office: "Did you say you wanted double D's?" "No no, I'm looking at anime D's."

Yes, i know, lame joke, but you all know what I'm trying to say hahah

I think the anorexic women on every TV show has had a worse effect. It would be nice to see someone with a butt once in awhile on my tube.

Wait... not that tube.. wait...

@worlds,

Funnily enough, Shion is my favorite character in the game, I use KosMos because she is more recognized. I 'love' the Shion character, as annoying and neurotic as she is, I get the character. Plus, she's as cute as can be...

Hell, I've seen some swimsuits so skimpy, that their lil' itty-bitty patches had to be made by a dental floss company.

It's why he's limited. There was an accident while playing beach volleyball, and well, let's just say, his motion is now limited...

Well, the ESRB apparently doesn't like this PSP game. Unsurprisingly the game hass been given an M-Rating. Now, before anyone jumps at that, despite having no nudity, the game is clearly meant for adults and relies almost entirely on what the ESRB would no doubt call "sexual themes". But, it's not the rating that's the problem.

It seems that the ESRB has expanded it's mandate beyond rating games to rating their worth, or worthiness. I wasn't aware that the ESRB made value or morality judgments of a game, and took those judgments into account when rating a game. Here is a quote from what they say about the game:

"Parents and consumers should know that the game contains a fair amount of “cheesy,” and at times, creepy voyeurism—especially when users have complete rotate-pan-zoom control; but the game also contains bizarre, misguided notions of what women really want (if given two weeks, paid vacation, island resort)—Paradise cannot mean straddling felled tree trunks in dental-floss thongs."

I'm not sure why "parents" should know anything about a title clearly aimed at an adult audience. Hey, my parents are still alive and kicking, perhaps I should run this game by them?

Anyway, I found this write up about it:

http://terminalgamer.com/2010/02/03/esrb-says-dead-or-alive-paradise-is-full-of-creepy-voyeurism/

The thing is, I really do not like it when a ratings body makes such charged statements ("cheesy", "bizzare", "mis-guided", "creepy") about a game that involves no nudity or sexual contact. It reeks of moral superiority and a double standard. It's not so much the 'M' Rating (that was probably appropriate) this is a game for adults not kids. The proble is that the ESRB saw fit to make moral judgments. It almost makes me want to buy this game simply to spite the prudish folks at the ESRB.

I'm going to guess that none of the folks on the ESRB ever went on a vacation to the beach while in their mid teens with raging hormones. More than a few young men have been known to follow bikini-clad women around like lap dogs. I really don't see how this game is any better or worse than that. Ah well, you live and learn.

I prostrate myself before our new puritanical overlords and thank them for the scourging I am no doubt due.
