There's a patch out for Deathsmiles! It releases today, and allows Deathsmiles to run at optimal capacity. It fixes several key issues, including a de-sync problem that prevented players from viewing their level replays properly. It also adjust the slowdown on several levels. Game on!
Even though I will be playing Marvel vs Capcom 3 today, it is still nice to know this game was fixed for the naysayers. Thank you for your dedication Aksys!
Now release Deathsmiles 2!
