ixbar3000 v0.21 released.

The major thing this time is the addition of NeoKobe systems. A lot of work was done by n² (nanonano) and the people behind Neokobe. I thank you for your efforts and now I can proudly claim that ixbar3000 is the unique frontend for all NeoKobe goodies!

Bug fixes, usability improvements, new corporate images. It’s a bit of too big version number as the additions are so few in numbers, but I was persuaded by n².

As a side-note: this is a bit rushed release. There is a possibility that I’ve made some stupid mistakes during the release.

Tekken Revolutions & Dead or Alive Ultimate

About a month ago Tekken Revolution was released exclusively at PSN. The game uses the F2P model so it’s generally free, but uses micro-transactions for something. In TR’s case money is used to buy ‘coins’. These coins are then used to play matches. You have coins (2 for Arcade-mode and 5 for Online-mode) and they regenerate so at the moment there’s no need to use real money to access any features. I think that this is a very good way to introduce Tekken to new players as it requires no investment, but we’ll see if they decide to add some DLC-junk.

After DoA5 came DoA5+ for the PSP and then they announced DoA5U for PS3 and XB360. DoA5U comes in two variants one is F2P called “Core Fighters” and the actual retail game is just DoA5U (which comes in 5 variants: normal, collectors edition, CE-kasumi, CE-Momiji and CE-kasumi+momiji [24,990 円]!!
