I'm fine with the guest artists. I thought some of those characters were pretty interesting. Guest characters are always cheesy though.
How do you feel about guest characters or artists in SCV?
To be honest, the SC franchise has become known for the trend, and thats great. But last games choices were my least favorite so far. The cool thing about it from a collectors stand point is it gives me incentive to buy all versions of the game. I remember how even though I never really played the Xbox or PS2 versions, I tracked down and got all 3 versions of SC2 because all three of those characters I liked.
Guest characters are silly and the guest artists take focus away from the main fighters. Almost all of the new characters in SCIV (four out of five) were collaborations from anime artists, none of them had personalities or stories and none of them will be returning in the new game, so what was the point? Has the SC universe really become that shallow?
"While I can understand, agree with that to an extent, sometimes it works. Using Astaroth's moves as Ashlotte, without using that ugly brute works for me.
Also correct me if I'm wrong but don't characters created by guest artists share move sets with pre existing Soul Calibur characters.
Guest characters however have completely original move sets, right? I'd rather have a whole new character than a clone."
If the guest characters act as console-exclusive novelty, then it's a waste of time for people in the competitive perspective.SC has never really had a competitve scene, and now with the fighting game market having exploded, I would doubt if this game will be the one to get that kind of attention.
Guest Characters yes. Guest artist maybe? As long as there new Characters have unique movesets, I don't really like clones. I personally would love to see somebody from Fire Emblem, (mainly Ike, Lyn, Roy, or Hector( I chose out of the leaders, since if it were somebody from Fire Emblem it would most likely be them))If it were to come to the new Nintendo system. But somebody from Capcom does seem likely since they are already working on The SFXT and TXSF together, and they have done Namco X Capcom before.
Well it has been confirmed before that there will be guest characters. I think Bayonetta would be an ok choise for Ps3 or Xbox30(which system is it on again). But i would prefer somebody else I guess. But it wouldnt matter to me is she is the guess character for thosse systems if it does come out on Project cafe/Wii HD/ Stream.
I have no problem with guest characters as long as they (more or less) fit the time period. I didn't mind it in SC2 (though I really only played the GC version) but it was one of the many reasons I HATED Soul Calibur IV.
Who should make it this time around? Hmmm haven't thought about it much for other systems other than nintendo but these would be my pics.
One of these 3 for the XBox 360
Link vs Ganondorf? SOLD!!
I just watched this episode of Invisible Walls where they talk about SCV at about the five minute mark.Bayonetta?One member of the show says that there will be a guest character, which is odd because I thought Namco didn't confirm or deny that.He goes on to say that theres a rumor the guest character will be Bayonetta.Personally I hope this is just a rumor, but what do you guys think?
Dear God NO
If we're naming guest characters, then how about Alice Liddell of American McGee's Alice / Alice: Madness Returns fame?
Distinctive outfit (with alternate costumes a-plenty provided by the new sequel), sharp melee weapon, experience with murdering fools... You have to admit, she fits in a hell of a lot better than Yoda and Starkiller ever did. Plus, she has a very small chest, so they can't ruin her image with a ridiculous amount of bounce. Maybe she and Tira could hang out and talk about being crazy over some nice tea.
