This last week has been crazy busy at work. I’ve been doing the whole wakeup, go to work, get home, sleep thing and finally it’s the weekend and time for some quality gaming.
I’ve had such a hard time these past few weeks deciding on what system to get Soul Calibur 4 on. One day I’ll be adamant I’m getting it on 360 then I will change to PS3 within minutes. Fuck I hate decisions!!!
I even made a forum post on giantbomb when it first launched and everyone was saying both systems.
The 360 has better online (well for Americans) achievement points and my favourite Star wars character Yoda.
Playstation 3 has the better controller for fighting games, better graphics and sound for my setup (I’ve only got my PS3 using HDMI, my 360 has composite cables) and I heard that Yoda will most likely end up being downloadable.
After a long week of thinking about what console to get it on I decided on PS3, I hope Yoda does get added in, he looks so badass.
Anyways, today is Sunday and I played a few hours of SC4. I unlocked all the characters except the space near Vader, but I think I read that might be reserved for Yoda, I haven’t really read up on it. I played through most of the modes and at current time I’m working my way down the tower. I played through Story and Arcade a few time and it’s a pretty good game.
This isn’t going to be a review but at the moment I heard on a podcast that there are a lot of balance issues. I haven’t played online or against anyone decent. (I played my 5 year old, button smashing) but other than that it’s been against computer. The majority of the time I’ve been using Nightmare. I always loved his style in the older games and nothing much has changed. I do like the spin kick off the ground combo and his brute power with the big swings.
About 15 minutes ago I finished story and arcade mode with the Apprentice. He seems like a pretty awesome character. I had a funny moment where I was doing his in the air 4 hit combo and I knocked my opponent out of the ring and I followed (while in mid air). It wasn’t arcade mode and I had someone to fight after, so I lost that round. ;(
Well first impressions the game is very good. Once I play vs. real people I will have more of an idea if this game is just eye candy or a really good in depth beat’em up.
Thanks for reading <3 you all long time.
