Ill-gotten achievements ftw
Despite my doubts, I’m closing in on the 40 hour mark on DOAX2. I’m not sure how much longer I’ll play, but I definitely would have stopped at the 25 hour mark if it weren’t for the casino save exploit.
Thanks to the money that generated, I’ve been able to really appreciate many outfits that would had been previously dismissed. Bikinis that, at first glance, look sorta blah, and are overshadowed by the flashier, skimpier thongs numbers. So despite the fact that it’s basically cheating, it has greatly added to my enjoyment of everything the game has to offer. Of course it helped net me 9 achievements (one for each girl) that I would never have got on my own. I feel guilty about that actually.
Even though I’ve spent a good amount of time on the game, I still have mixed feelings. Is DOAX2 better than the first? Worse? Time will tell.
On the merchandise front, the 10th anniversary calendar has been put up for order on Tecmo’s Japanese site (they don’t ship outside of Japan). It’s nice, but I can live without it.
What I do want is the new sets of playing cards. I have the two sets released for the first DOAXVB and they are quite nice. Having seen these cards for hours playing poker in the game, I would love to actually have them for reals.
