scarey stuff, he looks like he maybe linked to the swords (red arm soul edge, blue arm soul caliber and the pictures with the soul caliber styled shield thing)

the pic of the dude sitting on the throne is exactly like a Kain's artwork from a while ago. I bet they based this artwork on that picture.

Everyone draws barbarian/warrior/etc. kings sitting like that. Krauser from KOF sits like that, Conan from Age of Conan sits like that, etc. Seriously, you guys are reading into the way he sits too much.

Yes, he is the last boss from what I know. He is the one holding that handle with the eye in the trailer. Some Remnant of the Soul Edge?

He does look badass. hopefully he is unlockable. (probably will be)

Wait, Ubisoft sent these screens to you guys? I thought Namco was publishing the game as well.

Edit: I just Wiki'd and found that Ubisoft is publishing it in Europe.

He's so veiny, wouldn't a minor cut cause him to bleed to death in like 10 seconds? Lol! http://images.gamersyde.com/gallery/public/8871/12...

By the way, where the hell is the self shadowing in this game??

Hehe, he does look like Raiden & King Theoden (LOTR, while corrupt) had a baby and gave him steroids from birth.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite He's boring McGenericFace thing, with horns. And he wants to collect a couple of box things to...yep...take over the world. He's the destroyer of worlds, yadda yadda. Zzzzzzzz Oh, fuck off... (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, I'd say the most generic and boring villain I can recall. He's something that stepped out of a 90's cartoon or comic book TV series or something. Entirely all CGI too. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: I can't even remember suicide squad, and I only watched it a few months ago. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: more boring than whatever it was in suicide squad? i can't even remeber what that thing was called or what it looked like. lol (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Though JL was the biggest pile of wank. Any time Flash was on screen and opened his gob, I wanted to smack him. It also had probably the most boring villain in a comic book film ever. (4 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: I think they increased the prices with the launch of the X1x. (10 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Even came with the codes to download all the gears games too. Bargain! (10 Hours ago)
