Dead or Alive Xtreme PC will downgrade boob physics on low-end hardware

Dead or Alive is a pretty good fighting game series best known for its innovations in the field of physics simulations. I believe the objects attached to the front of its cast of women are intended to represent breasts, but they often bear more of a resemblance to water balloons, slipping and sloshing this way and that.

The Xtreme spin-off series abandons most all pretense around ogling its digital cast of ladies, and the most recent third game did it even bigger with its use of the ‘Soft Engine’, Tecmo’s own set of tools from DOA5 for making realistic skin and, yeah, improved bouncing boobies. Soft Engine 2.0’s big innovation was, of course, its introduction of butt physics.

You’ll be able to enjoy the full benefits of Soft Engine 2.0 with Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation on PC, provided you’ve got the specs to run it. Venus Vacation is a free-to-play derivative of DOAX3 using Japan’sgacha system to randomly draw new swimsuits.

A translation from DualShockersrevealed the game’s recommended specs – if you’re playing the game on a low-end PC – below the recommended GTX 1050 or R7 370 – you’ll see the Soft Engine Lite originally used for the Vita version of DOAX3. A less developed form of the tech with a less robust physics simulation.

Of course, this is all a moot point for most English-speakers, since like the console versions of DOAX3 this one is unlikely to actually get localized.
