There's a free-to-play version of the new Dissidia coming the to PS4 and PC. Looks like it'll be running a DLC model kinda like Killer Instinct, plus a weekly rotating roster of freebie fighters.

still sounds like an STD you need to treat with some kinda shampoo but I'm not exactly the target audience

The Cage family are really a highlight of MK lore. Also I love that Kano is Australian now (RIP Trevor Goddard you mad brit).

On a whim I played a bunch of the freebie "Core" version of Dead or Alive 6 and enjoyed it quite a bit. This version only has four fighters (Kasumi, Hitomi, Bass, some other guy) and no story mode - supposedly, as I was able to at least start it up and see some cutscenes without getting a DLC prompt.

But it seems like all the usual not-story modes are included in Core, yer Arcades and yer Versuses and whatnot, including a super long and pretty fun Quest mode, and all kinds of stuff can be unlocked through normal play even for characters that aren't in that freebie foursome, so that's cool.

I doubt I'll ever actually throw money at this thing but it is getting me in the mood to finally jump into Soul Calibur 6 when it eventually goes on sale. DOA ain't quite SC but it's perfectly competent and DOA6 feels like a pretty damn solid one of those.
