Awwww.

All the Souls

I feel like Brad was trying too hard to not like this game. Especially once he admitted that he doesn't even play SC games.

Congrats Humphreys

gahh, can't believe i missed it :\

Edited by mrmanga

Sort of excited for this one, didnt like 4 much so wonder if they have improved it or not.

Edit: Kind of disapointed of by the story mode, but other then that it seems fine. Il get it when its cheaper.

The soul! It burns! It Buuuuurrrrrrnns! 
 
Also, Boo-urns! 
 
Edit: This doesn't seem too bad. Seems better than IV.

Edited by onan

The soul still burns? damn straight it does.

Where's Talim? She's my go-to lady. :(

edit: Namco made my non-purchase easy. No Talim = no buy.

Taking off my pants before watching this.

I've always been a huge fan of Soul Calibur, but I think I'mma just play SC4 while I wait for a price drop here. Tekken 6 took, like, two months to hit the bargain bin.

Posted by Nephrahim

Looks alright, but not setting my world on fire. I'll pick it up when it drops in price.

Curious to see if the series gets any better this time around. Haven't played much since 2.

Man, it's pretty Japan all up in Giant Bomb today, huh?

Xianghua is always my go-to. Is she still in this?

Tekken over SoulCalibur....you lost me on that Jeff...for shame...

Taki is not playable in Soul Calibur V. Her student, Natsu, is in this game.

Posted by leejunfan83

So they removed Taki to make her a blonde haired teen nice work Namco

The soul still burns.

Posted by OmegaAmen

@MormonWarrior: No, Xianghua is not in this game. Her daughter, Leixia, is in this game and has most of Xianghua's moveset.

Posted by Nephrahim

Say, did anyone else see floe in the lobby?

Think it was him or an imposter?

Edited by Laini

Rebel 1, Action! Oh wait, wrong game.

I played the heck out of SC4 for a while but it got old. Not sure whether to pick this up or not but I do love Ezio, that might just force my hand.

No Sophtia? :( I guess her daughter is in there but she was my favourite character. If Ivy can still kick ass why can't Sophitia?

Edited by CptBedlam

Ever since they introduced that whole character creation stuff and populated the various game modes with generic opponents, the series lost it's appeal for me. Loved SC2 but I was only lukewarm on SC3 and 4.

They should instead focus on a decent story mode and the actual characters, you know, make a MK9-type game.

Posted by Sunjammer

No Taki :-( Cry!

Tekken style for fighting style... One more step towards "All fighting games take place in the same universe"

Posted by Linkster7

First five minutes of this is just going through all the Soulcalibur jokes. Nicely done.

Edited by Death_Burnout

The character creation alone, not being jacked, makes this a must buy for me. Soulcalibur IV was insulting with that stuff.

The soul still burns for me. IV was a disappointment but i've always loved the series, it is the only fighting series next to MK that I like. Shame about the story mode but whatever, don't care. Everything else looks like a good package and Ezio is a major plus. The only guest character i have ever liked.

You can mash to victory in both games, so to be fair picking one of the other means nothing.

Disappointing lack of Nightmare in this quicklook =P 
Seriously, though. I haven't played SC since, like, 3- which ever one had zelda on GC, Spawn on XBOX and Dude from Tekken (that I've suddenly forgotten the name of and someone is going to get mad at me for) on Playstation 2. 
Haven't really felt like playing SC since that one, but I've played that one to death. I think I just got a lifetimes worth of Soul Calibur at this point and I just don't want to play it anymore because I never feel compelled to get it anymore.  
I got damn good at it at one point too, so I guess I just got all meh on it. Same happened for me with Tekken.

slightly dissapointed with the single player side of this game, but the online looks to be super good, hmmmmm... i think its probably worth it, ill see how rich im feeling on friday with FFxiii2 out aswell

Posted by MeatSim

If your soul still burns you should probably go see a doctor about that.

Posted by Zaxex

I'll probably get this; can't resist training modes in new fighting games.

I don't know if Jeff or Brad know who Justin Wong is but he was in that lobby they joined, Floe too; some of the best fighting game players in the US in Street Fighter and Marvel. I've been watching them stream SCV over the last couple of days.

Posted by Zaxex

@SamDrugbringer: Yep that was Floe, he streamed some Soul Calibur V on Twitch under that name, Wazzler is Justin Wong too.

Posted by leejunfan83

@RecallBerserk: Nah you can't mash to victory in Tekken

I mostly know Justin Wong as the dude who keeps being the opponent in Daigo's victory videos. Always the bridesmaid...

So I don't see the point of getting rid of established characters if you're going to make all of the fighting styles exactly the same. Why? Sophitia's son is so much like her that it's just weird.

They should know better. Did they learn nothing from SNK's omission of Mai in KoF XII?

Patroklos fucking hunted down a Lynx, gutted it, and instead of stuffing it and putting it on a mantle, he using it as his SHOULDER PADS! Dude has CLASS!

Yes, i am pretty sure that was indeed Floe. He's been streaming SC5 pretty regularly up to the release of the game.

Yeah it was Floe, but he was messing around on Ivy, usually he plays Natsu.

Was quite a surprise seeing Giantboming joining the room on the livestream.

Edited by Neurotic

Man, Patroklos shouts 'JUSTICE!' a whole lot.

The story mode looks lame. It sucks that there aren't stories for multiple characters and it seems lazy that there is just dialogue and some drawings. I guess the trend was set by the short and unfulfilling Story mode for IV but I was hoping they'd bring back the more in-depth Story modes of Soul Blade and Calibur II now that there's a time-skip.

Oh well, looks like I'll be getting Catherine next week instead.

Except that you're 100% wrong. Nice try though.

Yeah that was Floe, and the EG Wazzler is Justin Wong.

I don't care about Soulcalibur, but I have to say, the fights are enjoyably flashy and fun to watch casually.

Posted by 234r2we232

Should I buy this or Soulcalibur 4? D: I recently played 2 after busting out my old Gamecube and had a surprising amount of fun learning some combos.

No Link in either version tho? Boo.
