Wow, I almost forgot to breath while looking at those screens ^^
Looks very sweet. High detail in the weapons, like it alot.

Hopefully this means the gameplay will get some revamping as well, this series has lost a lot of steam it once had

Some of the best characters yet on this generation... There's too much developers that have problems with doing natural looking humans. But looks great here :)

Oh, well I don't think they look "natural". SC always had that anime-look, and still has here. And that's good ^^

Glad to see Kilik back now it is a must get game. I hope he has a shirtless outfit in this game.

What the fuck is wrong with Namco? Do they like including characters who are TOTALLY out of place in their fighting games? Link, Darth Vader, Yoda, Spawn, Gon, that Tree from Tekken, the boxing Kangaroo....Its ridiculous!

Looks great, I really hope this one lives up to the Soulcalibur name. The third game was a huge disappointment.

It's just a bonus, if you don't like them just don't play with them and that's it ;)

The characters look very good. I still think the face expressions of the female characters is odd...

But it fucks up the character list dont you agree? I mean you have this great list of original characters like Mitsurugi, Astoroth, Voldo and then you got....Lizardman...

Lizardman is a classic Soulcalibur character, why wouldn't he be in here? Is he really any more odd than an ancient samurai, a giant axe weilding mutant or an Itailian contortionist? The series isn't really about realisim. They're fun characters, that's all that matters.

Right, wanted to say the same!

Kilik and Lizardman look great to me, but Xianghua's face in some of those shots looks freaky.
Commented on 2008-02-29 18:16:13
YEY! kilik...although he looks worse then he did in SC2 imo

Lizardman used to be a silly rip off of Sophi.. but he really started to come into his own in SC3. I'm sure he's even more individualized in this game and that's fine by me.

what i still dont get is how the chick in the fir$t photos blocks the same way every single attack kilik dishes at her...i thought this would have been fixed in this generation of videogames

like it doesn't matter what u throw at the characters, they have one blocking stance that can block everything lol

i think devs need to start looking at stuff like this if they want to stand out from the rest

overall the game looks the same as the previous encarnations and therefor i ain't picking this up right away :(

my 2 cents, laterz

Game looks great graphically, we want more gameplay please:) I know it will be good non the less.
Commented on 2008-02-29 18:33:03
Looks great... though I'm getting a little sick of bloom or whatever it is called where the highlights are blurry and blown to white.
Commented on 2008-02-29 19:00:57
Veins! Why veins!?

Kilik's hand in second picture looks like mine when I've had too much coffee for one day.
And Maxi looks like a damn junkie.

Well, that's about all critisism I have, besides the breasts in this game.
I don't mind Ivy's rack, but Takis breasts are ALL OVER THE DAMN PLACE when she does fast animations.

Damn veins...

Mitsurugi trying to get a view of some ass ;-p

Looks great. Anyway, I hope Namco Bandai adds more console specific characters that actually make a lot more sense than Yoda=Green=360, Vader=Black=PS3. I'm hoping for a Kratos and Master Chief addition. I'd think the guys at Sony Santa Monica wouldn't mind and I would think that Bungie wouldn't mind (they did include a Spartan in DOA4).

About the game


What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane On a different subject all together. if only the entire world acted like this: [url] (6 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (19 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (22 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (42 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz PhaeKO outta nowhere. Rod said he wanted to do it right before doing it different and 343 were the blueprint for this which is why a lot of the Gears community still remains intact. (44 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 That and the variety just isn't there. So many different enemy and weapon types in Gears 2, which was the high point of the series for me. Gears 3 wasn't bad but it was on the downswing for me. (49 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I really dislike Gears 4. Horde 3.0 was a disappointment, and the mechanics haven't changed much since Gears 1. After playing the remake so soon it just felt like more of the same. (50 minutes ago)
