October alternate costume watch

Golden Axe Beast Rider has received mostly negative reviews, but I'm still a little interested thanks to this image post above from the irojanaikedo board. I'm a sucker for the old school costume. Maybe I'll take the chance once the game gets discounted.

It sounds like Street Fighter IV is going to be out before the end of the year. I thought it would be Feb, but whatever. I hope the characters have more than one alternate outfit.

Yeah. Would be great to get more than simple color variants. this chinese dress is perfect for Chun Li, and maybe she will have got her SF Zero costume too. This would be first time Ryu or Ken have got any alternate outfit in a 3D fighting game.

Hey I took those screens! Looks like you visit a certain Japanese image board.

I bought the Golden Ax. I would say the parry and block feature is pretty useless, but it doesnt kill the game. It is still very much a hack and slash with beautiful gfx and heaps of stupid enemies waiting to be cut in half. The classic tyris white-bikini costume is obtainable when you defeat death-adder in the story, and usable in the "free" mode, which allows you to revisit certain levels and try to get better ratings to earn more tribute points to unlock different weapons. Think Conan setting, with the main char as Tyris. Not bad game IMHO

Hey Bob, that's correct, I mentioned they were from that board in the post. I didn't post a direct link since the users there don't like non-Japanese comments. Good shot taking btw.
