Looking beautiful as ever.

I always wondered why namco uses 2 different engines for their fighters. (Tekken SoulCalibur)

This engine seems to be the better one.

There is no urge to buy this really or is it just me?

Can't wait. Last row of characters is a total bummer, but it still looks very good.

Took me a while to get into it, mostly because it's so different. Now I'm actually sorta digging that they're taking so many risks.

And I don't want to share in the global melt down, but screw that whole last row of characters. Three mimics, and Omega Pyrrha has the same move set as her vanilla version. What?

Coulda at least given her Cassie's moves.

I don't get it. Seriously. How has Soul Calibur been milked, especially compared to countless other franchises this generation? We're on our fifth game in more than a decade, and SCV is probably the biggest overhaul in franchise history.

character designers taking drugs...way too much.

The German characters in this game are the coolest.

Siegfried Schtauffen und Hildegard von Krone!!

Nooooooo, purple hair is awesome :O
Of course, you're right. The girls eyes in DOA are big, too. But DOA always had this anime look. At least they try to change it a bit with DOA5 now.


But tbh, an over-animeish style doesn't fit SC, IMO. Phyrres (I googled her name now, lol) are huge. Maybe they wanted a more innocent and girly like look.

There..fixed.

SC has ALWAYS had anime based characters, I think you're the one smoking something... If you want realism there's VF. Anyhoo I'm in no rush to play this either, not unless they fixed the countless problems with SC4 (load times, shit story mode, dull online are biggies)

Never said I want realism. And you should read my post again. ;)

Pyrrha looks awesome. Her personality sorta sucks, but hey, maybe the Omega version won't be such a crybaby.

I'm not a huge fan of quite a few of these, but the character editor looks a lot better this time around.
