PART THE SECOND:
    Where the Questions are Posed and some
    Unsatisfactory Answers are Made
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1.  Should I buy this game?

I'm going to make a couple of lists.  Depending on which list you fall 
on will tell you whether you should buy, rent, or avoid the game.

-- Buy --
If you lover of all things DOA

-- Rent --
If you really had to ask the question

-- Avoid --
If you only like serious, hardcore gaming

-- Burn on sight --
If you are Joe Lieberman (though I don't have to tell you that)

I believe this is a great game and it is my favorite on the XBox. 
However, I can certainly understand why someone else might not like 
it. If you are not sure, RENT THE GAME FIRST. You will figure out 
whether you like it very quickly.

2.  What does "Code: Kunoichi" mean?

When a game is in development, it is usually given a name to tell it 
apart from other games. This is a good thing unless you want the RPGs 
and RTSs and FPSs to get mixed up. This name usually has nothing to 
do with the final game because, let's face facts, marketing people 
name things better than programmers do.

When Team Ninja does this, they give each game a codename. For Ninja 
Gaiden, it was Code: Kumai. For the forthcoming DOA game, it is Code: 
Cronos.

And (you can see this coming I'm sure) for DOA:XBV, it is Code: 
Kunoichi. Kunoichi evidently means "female ninja." Sounds good to me.

+++

3.  The back of the box says Nudity but there isn't any. Did I get 
    ripped off?

Did you watch the opening movie? There you go.

Other than that, chances are the teeny bikinis are as good as you're 
going to get. Here are a few reasons why:

One, Itagaki is very protective of his girls. He has stated in the 
past that he was upset when the DOA2 nudity thing happened. He just 
isn't going to do that to his creations. Notice that he had to create
an entirely new character (Christie) to get as naked as she does in 
both in DOA3 and this game.

Two, real games don't have nudity. It just doesn't sell. The porn 
industry has that covered quite nicely and the game industry can't to 
compete.

Third, that last statement isn't entirely true. I can think of two 
games that have nudity: BMX XXX and Leisure Suit Larry 6: Love For 
Sail. One of which sucked posterior orifi and the other was a
Leisure Suit Larry game, for god's sake.

+++

4.  The manual mentions a shop that sells shady 
    items. What and where is it?

As much as people don't want to believe it, the manual is most likely 
referring Zack Of All Trades. The reason I believe this is that the 
shop is not otherwise mentioned in the manual. Also, since it does 
not open until day four, it is ostensibly locked until that time.

Admittedly, it is not too hard to find since it is on the freaking 
menu, but there you go.

UPDATE 1/29/03: This has been confirmed by xtreamgamer on the GameFAQs 
DOAXBV forum by, of all things, CALLING TECMO. The audacity. We'll be
hearing more from xtreamgamer later in this FAQ.

+++

5.  The manual mentions a connection with DOA3's Survival Mode. What 
    is that all about?

This is going to sound a little odd, but this question has pretty 
much been put to rest.

The number of wins a particular character in DOA3 has is survival 
mode determines the character's starting money. For every ten wins, 
the character starts with 10,000 Zacks.

Thus a character must have at least 20 wins to see any difference. 
Here's an example: Hitomi has 26 wins in DOA3 Survival mode. When she 
starts her first vacation, she starts with 20,000 Zacks. If she had 
30 or more, it would be 30,000 Zacks.

It's not much, but it is something. Which is more than you get from 
most games.

+++

6.  If I start a new vacation, do I lose everything I had?

Within each save game slot, items, money, and relationships stay with 
the girl who earned them. Each girl keeps a separate inventory and 
collection. Any gifts you give during your vacation (that are
accepted) will also carry over to the next vacation.

For example, if you used Hitomi for the first vacation, she keeps all 
of the money and items she has at the end. If you start a new vacation 
with Hitomi, she with have all of the money and items from before. If 
you start a vacation with Tina, she begins with her starting suit and 
base money and any gifts she has received from your previous game. 
However you should see Hitomi wearing her own items during your 
vacation.

+++

7.  What videos are available and how do I get them?

There are eight videos available in the game. You can only receive 
them as gifts from Zack in your hotel room at night 

    DOA1 Demo 1997	
    DOA2 Realtime Demo 990217
    DOA2 Realtime Demo 990909
    DOA3 CF For Japan (Japanese Commercial)
    DOA3 CF For UK (United Kingdom Commercial)
    DOA3 CF For US (United States Commercial)
    DOA3 Opening Movie
    Ninja Gaiden Trailer

+++

8.  What unlockable items are in the game?

Right now there are only three items that change in the game and it is
really easy to do. After completing your first vacation, you will 
notice a couple of changes. 

First, your hotel room will now come with the option "Leave
Tomorrow." This allows you to stop a vacation early and start over
with new girl.

Second, both the opening and closing songs will appear at the radio
station so you can now add them to your paylists if you so choose.

And that is all for now.

+++

9.  Are there any other hidden characters/items/courts/minigames/
    areas/anything?

Maybe, but probably not much.

So far, no one has unlocked anything. But the hunt continues.

Most games don't put that much into extras unless they are pretty 
easy to find or else, why bother? So most likely we are not going to 
find anything amazing. If something is found it will probably be 
something nice, but the lengths to which one will have to go 
(completing every girls collection? good grief!) may not make it 
worth the effort.

A lot of the rumors on hidden stuff is based on the writings of 
marketing folk, anyway, and not the programmers themselves. And let's 
face it, marketing people make up stuff a lot better than programmers 
do. (They just can't make games. Thank goodness or we would get a new 
Doom or Warcraft clone every few days.)

UPDATE 1/29/03: xtreamgamer and Rakthar, those mad dialers, got a 
little more info out of Tecmo. The man at the other end hinted that 
there are other unlockables in the game, even mentioning the 
possibility that Zack may be a playable character or that there are
other courts available, though none of this is official.

+++

10. This is really bugging me: is it DOAXBV or DOAXVB?

Okay, nobody is asking this question, but I'm answering it anyway.

DOAXBV = Dead Or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball
DOAXVB = Drums Of Alabama Xylophone Vibrato Battle

Let's make sure we're talking about the right game, folks.

+++

11. There is this code I saw in EGM to make the girls topless. Does 
    it really work?

I'm going to type this one more time just to be absolutely clear: 

THERE IS NO NUDITY IN THIS GAME!

Anyone who asks this question at this point needs to get a life.
Really you do. The folks at EGM think you do too. They think it to 
such an extent that they played their annual April Fools joke on each
and every one of you. And judging from the message boards, it worked.

For the uninitiated, here is the explanation. Every year, EGM prints 
at least one code of dubious nature in its April issue (which this 
year was released in February, adding to the confusion). This year, 
to the detriment of each and every one of you slack-jawed yokels, 
they turned their attention to DOAXBV.

The code itself is simple: starting a new vacation save game, complete
the first vacation in 13 minutes or less. From there any future 
vacations played in that save game can be switched to topless mode by
pressing the Y button on the Swimsuits page of the items screen. With 
a little help from Photoshop (or the like) some fairly convincing
screen shots accompanied the article. Numbers 3 and 4 are the give-
aways if you know what you are looking for.

Now here is the deal: it does not work. People have tried. They 
prayed. They made virgin sacrifices (which is ironic, in a way). It
does not work. And is never will. Why?

BECAUSE THERE IS NO NUDITY IN THIS GAME!

+++

12. But, but, but... what about the transparent visor trick?

Okay, time to backpedal here.

When I type (quoting) "THERE IS NO NUDITY IN THIS GAME!", what I am
trying to convey is "THERE IS NO (intentional) NUDITY IN THIS GAME!"

The trick is:
  1. Buy a transparent visor.
  2. I mean in the game.
  3. Put it on.
  4. Again, I mean in the game.
  5. Start a Gravure movie.
  6. Now use all of those skills you honed zooming in on pixel boobies
     and aim the camera through the visor at the afore mentioned 
     pixels.
  7. If you did everything right, you should me looking at an 
     undressed girl. Assuming of course she is wearing a suit with 
     some sort of transparency. Did I for get to mention that part 
     earlier? My bad.

What is on display here is what we call a bug. The transparency of the
visor is overriding the suit transparency, making the suit all 
transparent. Woo. Are you all happy now?

+++

13. DOA2 had just as much nudity and it got a Teen rating. Why is this
    game rated Mature?

The nudity descriptor can only be on the box for the one reason: the 
naked Christie video in the intro. And that bearly cuts it. DOA2 had
just as much nudity in the Kasumi cloning sequence. So why Mature?

I believe that it was not a single descriptor that earned the rating,
but instead was the preponderence of the descriptors. Each of the 
individual descriptors is not enough to earn the rating, but a
combination of the three pushs DOAXBV over the top.

PART THE FOURTH:
    Wherein we Discover there is more to Live than Shopping
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1.  Volleyball

There is volleyball in this game if you look for it.

+++

2.  The Casino

There are four games in the casino:

1. Blackjack

The object of blackjack is to hold a hand of as close to 21 as 
possible.

2. Poker

The object of poker is to draw a hand of five cards which meet certain
requirements.

3. Roulette

The object of roulette is to bet on which slot on the roulette wheel 
the ball will drop in.

4. Slot Machines

+++

3.  Poolside

There are a few options at Poolside:

1. The Hopping Game

If you don't have a partner or you just want to take a break, you can
try the pool hopping game and make a little money besides. The key 
part of the game though is practicing using the analog buttons that 
are key to performing well in volleyball.

2. Taking a Rest

To trigger the Gravure movies at Poolside, choose Take A Rest.

3. Changing Suits and Accessories

One of the benefits of the pool is that you can change you suit and 
any accessories and the changes show up immediately. If you want to 
see how a new purchase looks, just head to the pool, hit that X 
button, and make your selection. Your character will automatically 
wear the outfit and you can see the change immediately.

+++

4.  Gravure Movies

If you want to take a good look at the girls, this is the way to do 
it. You can trigger a gravure movie by visiting a volleyball court 
that is unoccupied or at Poolside. The movies for each character are 
listed along with their profile.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
PART THE FIFTH:
    Wherein a mighty number of Lists are, well, Listed
----------------------------------------------------------------------

While you are looking over these lists, keep this horrifying fact in
mind: the total price of 8 copies (one each) of all these items is
50,699,600 Zacks. This is why making friends to get gifts is so 
important.

PART THE SIXTH:
    Wherein a Chronicle of Deeds is Recorded
----------------------------------------------------------------------

project started 28 January 2003

0.1 - 28 January 2003
    - first version, rife with inadequacies and stolen wholly from the 
      sweat and toil of the great members of the GameFAQs DOAXBV forum
0.2 - 29 January 2003
    - actual gameplay information added (will the wonders never cease)
      and a few answers are updated
0.3 - 30 January 2003
    - info about the girls is added, it would not be an DOA FAQ 
      without chest sizes, and we discuss the actual game
0.4 - 3 March 2003
    - details are fleshed out, but not much, and we revisit the issue
      that will not die, nudity


----------------------------------------------------------------------
PART THE SEVENTH:
    Wherein proper Credit in Given 
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Tim Neill for that wonderful and freightening feat of addition
gurl gamer for pointing out Leifang's meat bun fetish and helping
