How long has it been since Streetfighter X Tekken arrived on PC (which should be a holiday among Footloving Gamers)? It's been quite a few years since then, and in that time hordes of awesome, sexy mods have arrived for pretty much every battling babe on the roster, so all of us are happy, right?
Well, not really. Not ALL the girls have the due mods... in particular, Nina Williams, the gorgeous, ubiquitous Tekken Lady of Lethality hasn't gotten a mod that you'd expect her to get in an instant. YES, early on we have the godly Sloth86 to thank for bringing her Classic, Original Barefooted P1 Costume to SFXT, but since then... not much. It's only now that a void has been filled... with a proper Barefooted Swimsuit mod.
WHAT? Some of you may say, Hey, TSK! There are Bikini mods for Nina out there. Yep, there are- but sadly, none of them are up to the standard set by Sloth's mod- in that, all of these bikini mods use the same body model used by one other mod (basically they use the same bikini-clad character model for the popular 'Bikini Lili' mod by Rhazieul), and that uses bare feet models which are- well, oddly shaped since they were originally made to wear high heels. Compared to the feet used by Sloth in his P1 Outfit mod, they are totally inferior.
Unfortunately, after coming out with a few works, Sloth became inactive in modding, and no modder since then has taken up the job to give Nina a proper swimsuit mod (using the Sloth mod as a base). Up until now!
I recently found new modder repinscourge on DeviantArt, and he did a very cool swimsuit mod for Nina with the feet models I require.
The swimsuit is actually Anna Williams' suit from Tekken Tag 2 (not sure why he didn't use Nina's own suit but I disgress). I immediately asked for the mod, and repinscourge obliged. In fact, since then, he has made several of my SFXT dream mods come true, but I'll get to those in other articles.
For now though I am so happy with seeing Nina finally show off that hot bod of hers more (aside from just her deadly, sexy feet) with this new mod. And I'm sure a lot of you out there are too. Yeah, her Barefoot P1 Classic is divine, but sometimes you just want to see all the goods, right? Heheh...
I'll surely be posting a TON of video with Swimsuit Nina on the channel, so stay tuned. For now, I've got a couple up already for viewing. Enjoy Nina's soles and toes... I know I will. Heheh...
Even a few years on, the Capcom PC fighters are still among the best barefoot babe games you can get these days, thanks to the gobs of sexy barefoot mods which give us the sexy toes and soles of the World Warrior Women like never before. But while we have gotten many great mods in the past, this is an exceptional mod that has really made our foot-loving eyes widen in amazement. Modder dmwl1997 has not only given the feisty and uber-cute Sakura a hot bikini with his Ultra Streetfighter IV mod, but he has also made it a wonderful point to give her exceptionally beautiful and realistic-looking bare feet models. I don't know about the rest of you, but they look like the PERFECT FEET. Including the lifelike and soft look to her soles, which makes me really envious of her opponents who luckily get a face-full of Sakura's feet... Mmm. Hahaha!
I LOVE this mod.
Sakura's feet are pretty much in my opinion the best-looking videogame feet (in-game) I've yet seen, just as good if not better as the feet used by uber-modder Sloth86 in his barefoot Cammy mods (the later version, not the one with Mega Makoto Feet). I wish more modders gave their work this special kind of detail... I think it's awesome, even if the hyper-realistic feet may not totally mesh with the often cartoony characters. I say they look great in any case.
I am also thankful that dmwl1997 was nice enough to see to my request for a version of his bikini mod (which was originally far more risque) that I could use for posting vids on Youtube. If you want, you can still get the more skimpy version on his deviantart page, but hey- it's the feet were interested in, after all.
Makes me hopeful for Streetfighter V Feet...
I am hoping that dmwl makes more 'realfeet' mods, perhaps with the other Streetfighter Girls. Till we see barefoot girls in SFV, hold onto your PC uber-fighters! Enjoy the vids.
It's been a while, but a new Tekken game has arrived- though for now, Tekken 7 is as yet only in Japanese arcades as a pre-release. We'll get a final release in March 18, but at least this early we know that we have a monstrous barefoot boss to contend with in the game! Well, Tekken has had a nice tradition of barefoot boss ladies with Unknown in the past, but Kazumi Mishima's final boss form, where she turns into a Princess Kaguya-esque magical being complete with fiery wings and face paint, at least shows she also dislikes shoes. Nice! I would have preferred Kazumi was also barefoot in her human form, but maybe we can remedy that eventually with customization...?
Anyways, I have high hopes for Tekken 7- hoping that better customization and barefoot options are available for the girls. I am sure foot fans all over have been waiting for a return to form for the King of Iron Fist Tournament since the godly Tekken 6. Here's to seeing Lili, Asuka and the rest bare their soles once again soon.
It's been a grueling months-long wait, but finally, FINALLY, we've got barefoot Maya back in Killer Instinct, as she should be. No more of that armored stranger we had before- the proper Maya, unshod Amazon Warrior Queen that she is, has retaken the throne. Heheh. Anyways, the Classic/Retro Maya outfit isn't exact to the original, but I've come to love it just the same. She certainly looks to me like the hottest babe in the game now, certainly hotter than Orchid. So well, she may be the only barefoot babe in the game for the foreseeable future, but heck- I think she's worth it. Check out the vids and enjoy Maya's bare, sexy (and strangely dainty) soles in action. I'll most probably post more vids of her on the channel soon.
Orchid would have stood a better chance if she took off her boots...
Capcom's PC ports of their recent fighters are some of my favorite barefoot babe games thanks to all the sexy barefoot mods available. But it has to be said that some babes have a lot more love given to them than others- and one of the females who has received next to no mod love is the mysterious secret agent, Crimson Viper. Apart from one mod (which was actually unfinished and not really supposed to be released) by Sloth86 made long, long ago- she has had next to no barefoot mods to her name. Well, thankfully Viper gets some love in the latest mod pack by awesome modder Segadordelinks. Sega is currently working on a 'Slingshot Bikini' pack in which all of the babes in USFIV will be getting the distinctly skimpy V-shaped swimsuit. I have to admit, it's not my favorite style of swimwear, but I'll take any good barefoot mod for C.Viper that I can get.
I have to say that the way Viper stands makes it kinda weird to see her barefoot and bare-legged, but thankfully her feet models are pretty good (even if her one leg seems unnaturally twisted), plus her KO pose is one of the best in the game. So check out the matches with the barefoot and barely-clothed Viper. I wish she could kick her hot foot into my face... hahaha...
Not even Viper's super bikini powers can stand up to sheer Karate Power...
It's been a long wait (and it isn't over) but at least we've finally seen the end reward for us on the Xbox One brawler, Killer Instinct. Ever since the start of the game's Second Season, we've been waiting for the lovely Amazon Maya to show off her sexy, deadly feet in combat, but time and again we've been met by disappointment. First off was the blasted 'reimagining' thing that turned her from a beautiful barefoot warrior queen to some armored Brazilian fury. When her alternate accessories came out, NONE of them had any barefoot options. STRIKE TWO! Well, thankfully with the latest textual stream, the devs at Iron Galaxy revealed her upcoming Retro Costumes and Premium Accessory sets.
Well, to be honest I am weirded out by her hair, and by the somewhat goofy frills on the bottom of her top- but hey, at least she's barefoot. Those metallic things on her limbs could really just go, but hey, as long as they give us Maya's bare toes and soles, I'm happy.
Maya's Retro Costume should arrive within the month, with Update 2.3 of the game. I'll surely post vids of our returned Jungle Girl once she becomes available.
No KOs in DOA5U? No problem! Add your own (with XPS)!
Over the holidays, I've been having a TON of fun rediscovering Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate. I have to admit, while I've been a fan of the DOA series in general since the godly PSX version (which is, I believe, one of the first ever games to include unlockable barefoot swimsuits for the babes), my relationship with the franchise has been a rocky one. The game endlessly teased us with seemingly countless itinerations of DOA2, most of whom had absolutely zilch barefoot babe content at all. DOA3 came and inttroduced Hitomi, but other than that again was a dry bone. DOA4 pretty much lost me, and it wasn't until DOA5 Ultimate that FINALLY someone at Team Ninja apparently realized that there are people who like seeing the girls barefoot (usually in their swimsuits).
That the game is pretty challenging and some of the girls kinda hard to beat makes the KO sequences that follow that much more... satisfying.
Aside from that, I truly enjoyed at least the way they updated the girls' looks in the latest game- transitioning from the more anime-esque look of the past models to the slightly more realistic style of today- at the very least the girls have more unique looks from each other (Helena is truly a goddess).
My two big gripes with the game still bite though- one, the character models' feet are still far from looking the best. While the feet look great from above, at the sole view the girls' feet lack detail and could do with more life-like skin texture (Tekken 6 did this awesomely I think), and the toes seem to stick together. Also there's that weird issue of how the feet bend far too high up above the ankle, which is of course unnatural.
The loser's fate, getting ogled and admired from every angle...
The other problem I have with DOA5 is the seeming lack of proper knockouts. This irritating bit started in DOA4, where every round ends usually with the losing character looking dizzy but basically still CONSCIOUS even though they may have been finished off by a fall from a hundred feet or a brain-busting suplex. This inability to render an enemy properly unconscious truly takes away a lot of the satisfaction in this game for me. To be fair, there IS an actual KO animation/frame in the game, but you need to hit the downed enemy with a certain hit to see it, and it is very, very brief to see (you literally have to hit them immediately after the actual KO hit or it to register without being cut off.
Anyway, thanks to my dabbling in the XNA Lara/XPS Posing program, I have managed to circumvent the lack of Knockouts in the game by, well, adding them in myself! Yep. DOA5, I REJECT your reality and substitute my own!
I guess this goes beyond just the foot fetish and crossing into the KO/sleepy fetish, but I believe these go hand in hand...
So I basically pose the models myself and add in these 'KO Endings' after the actual fights. The only limitation are, of course, the available models for both the characters and the models. I have at least one or two barefoot costume models of each girl, and about three stages- though I decided to use a bit of 'creative license' for some extra KO sequences.
For example, an Alternate KO Ending usable for the urban stages has the loser's unconscious bod being loaded onto the back of a mysterious van, to be taken away to some unknown fate (for the record, they're being sent to a spa to get a rejuvenating massage). I may add some more depending on what I think up. Yeah, it's kinda weird but hey, it's fun- like cooking up 'Fatalities' but in DOA.
I can only do KO endings using the girls and stages I have models with, sadly. But thankfully I have enough...
Anyways, sadly there's nothing as yet I can do to remedy my second gripe- the foot model problem. Even sadder, it is quite apparent that this won't change in the upcoming Dead or Alive 5 Last Round release this coming February. However, I am looking forward to the prospect of seeing this gorgeous game in action in full 1080p.
Also, there IS the possibility that since it will be released on PC, there IS the possibility that modders may do the same wonders to the character models' feet that they did with Skyrim- that is, substitute more detailed, life-like foot models for the sub-standard ones from Team Ninja. Darn, just the thought of the DOA girls finally getting more realistic, detailed feet... wow. Please modders- someone like Sloth86 or such- PLEASE step up to this vital task! You are our only hope!
For now though, take the time to watch the DOA5 Ultimate KO vids I've uploaded recently to the channel. I'll probably do more as I still am in the DOA mood for the time being. Here's to hotter and sexier babe battles (soon in full HD) this new year!
