Ubidays: Yoda and Vader in motion

Ubidays: Yoda and Vader in motion

In the rush yesterday I totally forgot to put online these two gameplay videos of Soul Calibur IV showing Yoda and Vader in action.


Ubidays: Vader
Ubidays: Yoda

Graphicly it's impressive, but the framerate looks a bit 10~20fps.. hope they will fix that, since this is a must buy for me :D

HDRL looks realy better on vader`s video

Why is this labeled under "Ubidays"? Last I remember, Ubisoft didn't publisher Soul Calibur.

And Yoda looks like the more fun character to play as. Both models look pretty decent though.

wow I'm loving vader and yoda! They fight just like they do in the movies. As a fan of star wars I am way too excited right now. For me it doesn't get any better than this as far as guest characters goes :D

As a fan of Star Wars I hate a hectic, buzzing, bouncing Yoda. That's the worst thing George Lucas yould have done, but he did it. He stole his dignity.

Ubisoft is publishing, at least in Europe.

And yeah, I think Yoda looks like the far more enjoyable character, although I expect both of them to be rather broken.

Wow, learn something new every day I suppose.

Well I´m really looking forward to this but I have a feeling that Yoda has a slight advantage over the other characters, because he is so small and therefore hardly hittable.
Cheers

Personally I think he is better than Vader, but thats not saying much, they are both out of place in this game.

Well I would imagine they have measures to counter that, otherwise everyone would play as Yoda online :S

Duno what you were looking at but it ran super smooth for me, maybe your PC can't handle the 720p video ?

You think thats runnin as low as 10fps :S ok well that would be the 1st fighter EVER!!! this game should be at 60fps :) looks great to me

mind thats the 2ver of the game PS3 VS 360 =P

360 Ftw on this game :) shame about the d-dap
Commented on 2008-05-29 19:34:57
haha.. ok I exaggerated with the 10fps.. but it still looks a bit choppy to me (yes my PC is fast enough to play the video)

The Star Wars Characters look fun. The only downside is we won't see Vader vs Yoda fights.

Shame

I hardly think 30 seconds is long enough to evaluate whether or not a character is broken. Adding on top of that the fact that the players were obviously not top tier characters.

Did Namco ever say why they weren't publishing their own game outside of Japan?

Yeah, but the 360 version seemed more choppy than the PS3 version, which ran smooth, to me. And that gets me worried cause i'm a 360 owner!

Well according to the IGN preview the 360 build runs far smoother then the PS3 build as of now.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (29 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (29 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (41 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (43 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (45 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I believe it has to do with the fact that there's too many games to play at the moment, and most of these new games ar very long. This is the week FF15 was just released, and WD2 on PC as well. (47 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Maybe, but I believe it would have become a kind of "cult-classic" niche game even if it failed to become a very huge success. Still, if a game like TF2 isn't succesful, it's a real shame. (48 minutes ago)
