soul calibur is as disgusting in its spelling as mortal kombat, really

It's spelled the same way as Excalibur, which I think is what they've been going for this whole time.

SCVI top 8 is on... I hope this is a build with Voldo in it

Edit: Nope the same one they have been using

Maybe it's because Sonicfox is playing him but Geralt seems really fun

Naw its def good. Already have seen enough footage to know how all the core systems work and stuff and its def gonna be the best playing and probably most competitive SC game. Only things that could potentially be is if like, online is busted or someones stupid OP or something.

Ivy was my old main back in SC2 and she's looking great in exhibition matches so I'll be excited to get back into it. Hopefully she'll get some more tasteful clothing unlocks.

Also have you ever noticed that her initials are Isabella Valentine, I.V., aka Ivy? This only took me 20 years to notice, I am a freaking genius.

Dude can't catch a break.

But you know they must have made the decision with plans to make at least a second run with Jedah and Hsien-Ko/Lei-Lei skins. Maybe his upper body will make it in as a Zangief skin or something.

like i know, i know, we don't actually want modern Capcom making Darkstalkers anything

but it still kills me how every single time they do anything with the IP it's always the most boring characters in the game, visually and gameplay-wise

(apart from that one time they put Hsien-Ko in MvC3 but IIRC she was basically Dan-tier anyways)

I loved looking through the Marvel 3 EX notes about Hsien-Ko and rediscovering how terrible she was, cause they basically had to buff every single thing about her.

(maybe not as much as the Tron's snapback having absurdly long recovery thing, that one kills me)

I can understand how doing model or major visual effect changes would be a bad idea, but Chun's Morrigan costume should really make air legs the drill.

That being said, Blanka costumes, so it's more just laziness.

They're just completely different teams, Capcom is just paying for it all. Any medium/larger project is being completed by various teams, many of which probably aren't talking to each other at all.

It's like when Apple releases a new version of iOS and some nerds start going on about how one app is laid out different than the other and it's like no poo poo they have probably dozens of teams with probably very little communication between them all trying to beat unrealistic deadlines.
