Yup,it was a word that Zelda Dungeon would not let me write on this post: Mindf****d
Uh...it made sense to me. What happened to Serah was logical (I didn't see it coming, but it sort of was to be expected). Caius is too awesome to explain. Noel and Hope, dunno about that. The gameplay is several steps up from XIII's (though they're basically the same, S-E gracefully got rid of the TP system which honestly sucked, added Cinematic Actions for beefier gameplay and of course we have great voice actors as is S-E fame). Cutscenes are beautiful and what's more: ONE disc for the Xbox360 version! :claps:
Soul Calibur V just doesn't appeal to me after what they did with SCIV. To make matters worse, it seems as if Namco is trying to push Patroklos as the "main character" when previously there were no main characters (aside from Sieg and NM but that's a totally different story). I hear the Weapon Master/Chronicles of the Sword-type mode is Pat only, which would be disappointing. The Quick Step feature is bound to have bugs. I can tell that by looking for a balanced gameplay, one character of them all will be overpowered to the point where tournament play is a joke (previous examples: Kilik from SC4, Kilik from SC3, Kilik from SC2 but to a far lesser extent). Namco, i just don't know what to do with them.
