    I had no idea that this was coming out already until today.

    I shall be interested in getting it, so long as the base mechanics are solid. CCGs were always a guilty pleasure of mine.

    I'll be picking this up... I'm a sucker for these type of games, I just hope it holds up.

    I heard there's no ban/forbidden list... at least in the single player. That's both hilarious and sad at the same time.

    (EDIT) also, GT is Blankosaurus

    (EDIT#2) god they start you off with a shitty deck against well made decks. I've won 1 game by pure luck. My very first game my opponent had Goya Guardian and Android Psychic thingie on the FIRST TURN. Wouldn't be a huge deal if I had a competent deck but my highest level card is a level 7 neo-space warrior (NORMAL monster). Just hopeless.

    Also, there does appear to be limited cards. Monster reborn is limited to 1. Haven't come across bans but I'd assume they just aren't in the game.

    I should mention that you shouldn't expect much out of the starter deck as it is. The deck they hand you in YGO video games always tend to be random more or less. This one does however have some nice cards but from what I can tell only one high-level Monster, Elemental Hero Neos. At least they were kind enough to include the Skyscraper Field Magic Card so him and the two or three other Elemental Heroes in the deck can take advantage of it. Also, until the DLC drops, the only way to get new cards is to duel. You earn at least one card when you lose and (according to posts on other forums) about five to fifteen cards when you win, most likely the amount tied into how well you beat your opponent.

    haven't ran into any toons yet, but I've seen gladiator beasts, dark world, earthbound immortals (I actually got one but have like 0 support cards for it -_-), frogs, etc. I'd be surprised if they didn't show up somewhere.

    As far as card unlocking goes, as far as I can tell it's directly related to the # of points you get. Rather than give BP (or whatever they were called) in the DS games based on how well you did, they just straight up give you more cards for doing more shit. Stuff like killing the guy at exactly 0 HP, filling monster/spell zones, sychron summons, etc.

    Right now, I'm just trying to survive. I haven't beaten the first tourney yet but I've come close a few times. My deck is pretty fucking random but I've managed to pull 2 Monarch's (caius woot!) so I can play a ghetto beatdown now finally.

    If I have to and if I get enough cards, I'll aim for the Gladiator Beasts archetype first. They sound fun and I've always wanted to play them. I wish they included more room to save deck-lineups. Only fifteen deck-recipe spaces and I've already used two; one for the starter deck and one for any modification I make to it.

    On another note, do you think it'd be a good idea to drop a list of certain archetypes in the thread? I probably don't have room directly in the OP but I'd add a link to the list-post if it'll help those who're new to the game.

    got a toon gemini elf... so yeah, there are toons.

    Also, Jack's deck is incapable of dealing with 'marshmellow' type units. I only managed to beat him once because I decked him just sticking my aracana force 0 -the fool out there since turn 5. If I only had more marshmellows I could of beaten him :( Oh well.

    yep, just good luck getting the cards you want. You're basically given random cards and what's worse, is you're ability to collect more cards is actually penalized if you start playing in the 2nd tourney :( It's pretty bullshit.

    The random card deal isn't so bad in my eyes. That's how it more or less goes in the other games. They just happen to use booster packs and in-game currency to buy them.

    As for the amount of cards you can get playing, according to a couple of posts over at GameFAQs you earn a card for every 20 points you earn in a duel. One of the two players behind the discovery has been also piecing together what moves in a duel earn you points. Most likely not 100% accurate until more players validate the results.

    At least with packs you knew the general cards/themes you were going into. It's going to be forever before I can piece together a gladiators deck.

    On the other hand, I've gotten a lot of the E-heroes 'staples' so far... so there's that I guess :/

    Nope on the trading/auction feature. If you want to try out the game first for free though, it does have a demo like other XBLA games and from what someone on another forum reported, you can transfer any cards you earn in the demo over to the full game.

    I didn't look at who made this game, but why not just keep it like the DS games? You can buy packs that are themed, etc, etc.

    I WANT to get this game, but there isn't much that makes me really want to get it. Even though I played the DS games alone, I still had a ball playing. I loved seeing the monsters pop up from the cards. This game just seems bleh.

    I think I might just get the newest DS game. Or just go back to the card game and make decks with the cards I already have and play with friends.

    If you plan to buy one of the DS games, you might want to hold off on that until the next World Championship game is announced. Konami has mentioned a 3DS YGO game is currently in the works but no one knows yet if it's WC-2011 or simply a stand-alone game being made to test the 3DS' capabilities.

    EDIT: An update on the cards transferring over from the demo to the full game:
    Yes but you have to buy the game before you quit. the demo doesn't save so if you quit the game without buying it you'll loose all the cards you just earned.

    DOUBLE-EDIT!: An entry on Konami's Facebook-page about DD has mentioned what DLC players will first be getting and when.
    Yu-Gi-Oh! fans, the wait is finally over! Turn on your TV, fire up your 360 and get Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Decade Duels now on XBOX Live. And, in just 4 weeks you can grab 10 DLC card packs to amp up your decks. http://goo.gl/1Me2i ESRB Rating: E for Everyone

    So far, it seems like it's only via the single-player mode. As mentioned at the top of the page, Konami will be releasing card-DLC in four weeks for those who can't bear butting heads against the NPCs for cards. Between the DLC and grind, it shouldn't take too long for players to get their decks in shape. Then maybe we can start organizing a tournament or two. :)

    Some of the cards earned by the single-player mode have been pretty good BTW and they do include ones that aren't sold as part of regular booster sets either. Some players have reported getting this as their first card.

    Alright, got this, played some matches:

    - Not gonna lie, my starter deck is pretty solid. Although that may be the fact that they've been smarter with the cards they've included (like, I'm not seeing any Skull Servents or any other trash, for example). This theory is helped by the fact that in one match my opponent fused a monster in turn two, then used Miracle Fusion to fuse another copy of that monster D:

    - UI is nothing fancy but it gets the job done, music is fairly catchy, I've already heard a few different tunes and it changes when the match comes down to the wire, which I like.

    - AI is strange. On the one hand it's quite competent (I always seem to barely lose the second and third matches) and it isn't a cheating mind-reader when it comes to attacking face-downs like in previous games. But on the other hand I've had one time where they countered my spell with a spell that actually destroyed his more powerful monster. Maybe it was a one-off.


    Overall I'm having fun, that smug sense of satisfaction when your opponent plays into your hands is definatly there, and I've won matches at the last possible moment.

    Try out the demo if you haven't already, but I'm enjoying it so far.

    Also, I really hope Total Defence Shogun and Axe of Despair are in this, those were my favourite cards when playing on the GBA.

    At least the rewards for winning are pretty good, hopefully it'll just be a matter of time before I get a solid theme going.
