Soul Calibur VI (PS4/PC/XBO)

  • @jaggafredde said in Soul Calibur VI - where's the hype?:

    Those who hoped that Ivy would be fully clothed with smaller breasts

    If that's what the talk is about they're both petty and ignorant, honestly. She has had big breasts in 5 games and yes there ARE women with naturally big or even huge breasts. Soul Calibur ALSO has women with small breasts and more clothes. In addition Ivy has an alternate costume in all SC games, which gives her more clothes. Heck I'd even go so far as to call the people that complain excessively about Ivy pretty stupid, especially since characters like Voldo are apparantely forgotten every time this is brought up. In other words, what they're saying is "sexualization" of men is fine then?
    No, these people are not even worth hearing out because it's always the same with them.

  • It's cool that Soul Calibur returns. 2 and 3 were my favourites in the series, not least because of the single-player modes they had. That kind of a gameboard system with some story elements, I hope something like that is in SC6 now. Kilik has been my favourite character throughout the series because of his staff. Seeing Ivy's reveal for this just made me smile and shake my head at the same time, like "yep, Soul Calibur's back". :) I'm in.

  • @suplextrain Fully clothes might be an exaggeration... but the skin she shows and the size of the breasts is always brought up as a big problem. The rest I’ll take through pm.

  • @el-shmiablo Cool I need to check it out then! I just ignored SFV all together when hearing about the missing SP features.

  • @jaggafredde Which is totally understandable. SFV was mess at launch. Now its my favourite fighter by far.

  • @sentinel-beach Yeah Kilik is awesome! He’s my favorite too combined with Taki, range and speed, Astaroth is cool too for the power and awesome design. I’m in too! Or rather I was in the second the first reveal trailer started! :D

  • @el-shmiablo
    Same, granted I haven't been playing fighting games much for the last year, with my schedule preventing me from attending local events, but SF5 , Injustice 2, and Central Fiction have been my go twos.

  • Still got my PS2 Soul Calibur 2 copy. Think I just used Nightmare all the time.
    Hope there's something similar to weapon master mode this time around.

  • I'm pretty much definitely going to get this since I have fun playing this with the BF, but I gotta say I might reconsider if they do console exclusive characters again. I hate that crap. If Geralt shows up in this game, I want to play him, not be told he might be an Xbox exclusive.

    That being said, I agree with Bosman on this. I don't think they will do that anymore.

  • @inustar Exclusives or not I’m playing it either way, but I’d be really sad to see them go that route again, the Vader/Yoda split was just plain evil :(

  • Not bad at all. :)

  • Oh yess!! :D
    I generally don’t like guest characters but that’s awesome! And I’m replaying TW3 on XB1X so the timing is perfect! Looks great!
    (They could add Triss too, maybe as a DLC character if it’s too late for new characters now)

  • My guesses for additional guests:
    Bayek from AssCreed Origins
    Gladio from FFXV
    (if console exclusives are a thing) Kratos from God of War (2018) and... uh... Spinal from KI? (Literally the only MS property I can think of that would make sense. "Fable Guy" maybe?)
    Monster Hunter from Street Fighter V.

  • @jaggafredde I would expect Ciri before Triss since she makes more sense. She uses swords and is a more important character.
    That being said, I'd like all the characters. Just make a Witcher fighting game.

  • Really not a fan of guest characters, Geralt included.

    Then again, they take considerably less development time than the canon characters do, so it's not that bad, but I've really never been a fan of crossover fighters in Soul Calibur, it doesn't fit the series well.

  • @inustar Gah! yeah Ciri is obviously who I meant lol, I mixed them up, she'd be a great Soul Calibur character, fast and agile, and just enough tease and prettiness to get the hype (and discussions) going

  • @sonmi Generally speaking I agree, guest characters simply doesn't fit in the universe, the story gets weird, shoe horned :P But I think they made a great job with Geralt, he looks, moves and sounds just like he should, and it's cool that he's got sign magic as special attacks too!

  • @jaggafredde I think Geralt could work pretty well story wise since they have those portals to other worlds.
    Though, yeah usually they get shoe horned. Vader and Yoda were pretty bad...

  • @inustar
    Out of all the Guest characters Gearlt and Ezio seem like the easiest to add fro a lore side of things (even if SC5 was about a hundred years before Ezio was born) But with the Portals from The Witcher Gearlt could easily be added, especially since said portals lead to various dimensions and times. (Hell I vaguely recall Ciri mentioning travelling to a world that sounded alot like Cyberpunk)

  • @dmcmaster If Cyberpunk doesn't have some Witcher references I will be surprised. Hell, I'd be pleased with a secret side quest that has Ciri show up.
    But yeah, it's an easy story to write to get Geralt into SC (and Ciri too while we're at it).
    Not sure why, but I would like to see Bayek from AC Origins added, since I think he would work pretty well, and is easy to work in lore wise.
