Soul Calibur Thread - Return of Neclord's Waifu

That's not how this works though.

 

They plan DLC and the game at the same time.  Then they work in parallel if possible.  DLC was never going to be part of the base game.  It's going to be released later or not made at all.  The fact that it is DLC is what allows room for it to exist in the budget in the first place.

I know how it works. I just don't agree with it. I'm old enough to remember when PC games got real "DLC" in the form of expansion packs. The closest thing I see to that is the Torna The Golden Country DLC for Xenoblade 2.

Things were not really any better in the old days.  In fact things were worse.  Old-school expansion packs were just DLC sold in stores.  In addition to needing the budget to build your expansion, you also needed to advertise/release to retail/etc.  It was HARDER to bring expansions out because it was almost like releasing a whole new mini game to store shelves every time.

 

Old school expansions were just BIG DLC, because smaller stuff would never have warranted space on a retail shelf.  Instead of hating on DLC you should really just be advocating for bigger, more expansive DLC.  DLC on its own is totally fine and I think gaming would be worse off without it.

 

Small cosmetic DLC and the like might seem like nickle and diming, but at least it exists, and those who want it can buy it.  In the old days these types of small expansions/tweaks simply wouldn't exist at all.

Azwel looks... Interesting. Like if The Mandarin, Mr. Sinister and Rasputin got put in a blender and given an Algol-like moveset.

I was going to say that Shang Tsung took a side job while he waits for MKXI

He looks a whole lot better than the Create-A-Souls-esque leaked photos.  Now I just need to wait to see how much Raphael gets polished up before I place my order for SCVI.

Cervantes definitely looks good. Lots more shooting than I remember but if I brought a pistol sword to a fight I'd probably shoot everyone a bunch too.

 

Season pass says 3 playable characters along with a bonus, which I thought was Tira. Will be interesting to see who the other 3 will be.

Tira is included if you pre-order the Season Pass, but not she's exclusive to it; You can purchase her on Day 1 as DLC.

 

As far as the other playable characters go... I think one of them will be either Cassandra or Setsuka, while the only male character that I can think of that's DLC-worthy would be Lizardman's Soul Calibur V design and moveset. (Twin axes, wings, fire-breathing etc. etc.) I also feel like a full-on bare-handed fighter, like Heihachi in the PS2 port of Soul Calibur II and the Devil Jin moveset that was exclusive to Created Characters in Soul Calibur V could be up for consideration as well.

 

Lastly, I think a Samurai Shodown character will be a guest in SCVI and vice-versa. I want to say Genjuro and Yoshimitsu on that, respectively? But then again SamSho could get a Fighting Layer: EX character like Hayate or Garuda... It's exciting to think about the future of these games, huh?

Network test this weekend on Xbox1 and PS4. Looking around online it sounds like folks can start downloading the client Thursday at 8:00AM PDT.

 

Test period starts Friday at 8:00AM PDT and ends Sunday at 8:00PM PDT.

Looking at the "control manual"s they have posted at the bottom it looks like the network test will include all characters announced through Tira (16 chars total). I'm gonna try to hop online and Voldo some folks.

Haven't picked it up yet but I'm going to soon.

 

I'm not usually much for created characters. I have shit all for ideas. That said I do sort of want to make Laura in this game too so I can continue trolling with something like Voldo's move set.

I have been having too much fun with this game right now. I'm still not completely comfortable going online yet (Not that I honestly can, but that's another story), but just messing around in the single-player modes just makes me kind of feel a warm, fuzzy feeling inside I had been missing playing other fighting games.

 

Also, I'm addicted to the character creator.

Fucking a-men.

 

With the caveat that I respect the mechanical complications, fighting games are so damn niche already and it really sucks to further silo players per platform. Spend somea that waifu money on crossplay!

 

Also still haven't picked this up yet. Real life complications. But I'm still planning on grabbing it. Hopefully by the time things settle back down for me I can snatch it up in a holiday sale or something.

Just got back.  I should buy the game on PC and PS4, but I have a brand new XBO-X and it seems a waste to play it on the inferior PS4...

 

Wish it had crossplay so I wouldn't have to worry about such things. 🙁

This is the reason my XB1X is dusty 4K Blu Ray player. If a game has multiplayer, I'm not getting it on Xbox.

I assume everyone is playing this on PS4?

Yeah, although I spend most of my time in the Character Creator. Couldn't sleep. Made these during my insomnia.
