Virtua Fighter 5 demo on Xbox Live


Xbox Live has been rich with delicious demos lately, and this continues the trend, providing yet another game sample you'll actually want to try: Virtua Fighter 5. We were really excited to give this a spin until we learned the horrifying truth about VF 5: The speed of throws has been reduced from 8 frames to 12 frames! What's the point of even playing? ... No, just kidding. We don't care about that. But we thought some of you might care, and let it never be said we're not looking out for you.

The truth is, we were excited to try the demo but then were even more excited when we saw some of the character names. Sure, you have perennial classics like Wolf Hawkfield and Jeffry McWild. But now you have lucha libre wrestler "El Blaze" which, roughly translated, means "The Blaze." Who says games don't teach you anything?
