Acutally I did pick up the Sims on a trade in. It's ok, I played it most of the day yesterday. I don't see how it's the best selling PC game of all time, but it is pretty addictive.

But I haven't gotten to a part where I had to make someone else happy yet either. I think I'm at that type of objective now, as I need to get a new roommate to finish the third "level."

I can see it getting old pretty quick though. But it is a good time waster as you can just pick it up and play for however long you want.

But for DOA, I really couldn't stand having to do all that crap just to play volleyball and win new outfits. Not my cup of tea. But I did put that third on my list for a reason. I wouldn't write off the game just for the gift giving and crap. I write it off because I don't like volleyball, and the "babes" are a turn off.

Gotcha, and glad you at least somewhat like the Sims. Pretty addictive game, it wears out quickly though, yeah...

My favorite (laughable) thing about this forum...reading posts from people who take the time to enter a thread about a specific game or system and give their personal negative opinions even though they have not played one hour of the game or own the system.

It is not just this thread but others as well.

This is off topic, but since when do you have to own a system to post something postive or negative about a game?

This is why I own all three systems. THEY ARE ALL GOOD. NONE OF THEM SUCK.

Argh, I just found out from the official DOAX site that Hitomi pees in the pool.(caption on a screenshot) I'm not going to give her that carton of Orange Juice from Zack of all Trades, now.

Christie might be a cold blooded killer, but at least she has good personal hygene and respect for the pool.

I agree.

I mean you have to play a game to say that the gameplay sucks.

But you don't have to play a game to say that it's a lame idea, or that it doesn't interest you at all.

Same with movies. I can see the previews for one of those lame ass Rob Schneider movies and no that there's no chance in hell I'm going to like them.
Yes, you can always tell when a game or movie isn't your type. But to openly criticize them, you need some grounds to back it up. Even Roger Ebert had to watch Corky Romano to say it sucks, instead of not seeing and saying it looks dumb. I also avoid all those Rob Schneider type movies, but my friends always say they're funny. *shrug* I wouldn't know.

Sorry to confuse you and Josh, Outlaw. I never said that you "have to own a system to post something positive or negative about a game." Maybe that is why you are confused.

Read my post. I find it funny that people take time out of their day to read threads and then write their opinions (usually negative) on games and systems that they have never played or owned. I never said you couldn't do it. It's a free country. I still find it funny both of you may not.

If you do the same thing with movies or music in the other forums, people usually call you on it but somehow it just seems different in the video game forum.

Back to the topic of DOAXVB...

This is the most ridiculously fun, infectiously addicting game I've played in years. I played for more than five hours straight this morning, something I don't think I've done since Warcraft II was first released years ago. I'm generally the type of person to pick up a game, play it for 20 minutes, and that's all the gaming I do for the next few days.

What? Is this a joke?

http://www.xbox.com/doax/opendoax.html -- click on 'Screenshots', then click on the pic of Hitomi in the pool (the tenth image from the left, if I'm counting correctly, and I'm probably not), then click on 'Caption'. "I wonder if anyone will notice if I pee in the pool?"

I put a lot of time into this game and still thnk the v-ball gameplay is as shallow as it gets. The camera is terrible, and if your character is off-screen, you have no idea where they are. Love the T&A though. Unfortunately as a party game it doesn't hold up well, being only 2-player.

I got it this weekend as a birthday gift. I'm having a lot of fun with it but will agree that the actual volleyball is not that great. It's simple, which is fine.. I think my problem was that often my partner would become retarded, but that's all akin to the fact that you have to keep your partner happy. When they're happy they're usually on top of things. Only had 1 time where the camera angle really screwed me, so can't complain too much about that.

Of course the real fun in the game is dressing up your girl MMM.. pale skin Christie with black nailpolish and a pink 2 piece..

As for the nudity thats stated on the box, is it only referring to Christie's scene in that opening? Please say no.

Amen to that!

Actually spent a long time playing it this weekend. The parts I didn't think would be interesting end up being the most entertaining (after zooming the camera in on the "point scored" celebrations of course). Lisa has quickly become my favorite.

Surprisingly I found the gift buying and suit shopping strangely intriguing. Trying to get your partner to stick around and still get her in the skimpiest suit possible kept my interest. Yeah I know it's a cheap thrill but that's what this game is all about.

The volleyball games are simple and fun, but I wish they put more into them. That and they need more girls to choose from and more interaction off the volleyball court.

The casino was my downfall though, I never been dealt so many 12's and 13's in BlackJack in my life. Makes it hard to make the 1,000,000 necessary to get Lisa in that Venus suit.

I'd have to say that while this game wouldn't be worth the full $50 It is way better than I initially thought.

The real question now is...when do we get "Britney Spears---Extreme Beach Volleybal"??

Even if this game let me down more than I can ever say in a polite fashion I will say that it made me want Outlaw Volleyball even more.

I hate it when you put down 500k for a nice suit to give someone, and they are determined just to throw it away.

I just got the game today. Is there a way to change the camera angle?
