Hey everyone! Over the course of a few weeks, I have been in contact with the Outcast Odyssey creators and have finally obtained all of the images that feature Soulcalibur characters. The images with the red borders have been inserted into the wiki of each featured character.

Since the weapons are not characters, Soul Edge was put in Nightmare's wiki while Soul Calibur was put in Elysium's wiki. If you want to support the artwork, then make sure to download the game or like them on their Facebook page. It is also important to note that if you choose to download the game, then you would be able to see these images as holographic cards with animated backgrounds. Enjoy the gallery (Click images to enlarge)!

A 3-4 month hiatus from Project Soul's social media services has recently ended. What pieces of news are coming around this new year? You guessed it! Things that are not Soulcalibur VI. This brings up an interesting question. How big is the team's budget, and how much time are they being given for the next installment? Let's visit what they've said in regards to their current side projects.

We'll start with the most recent posts on the @hoshino_calibur twitter account. For those of you who don't know, Project Soul has been partnered with the developer of another Namco mobile called Outcast Odyssey. This is the second batch of character artwork to be plugged into the game. If you want to play this game on your iPhone or Android, the characters that have been added to Outcast Odyssey are Yoshimitsu, Taki, Sophitia, Mina, Elysium, Algol, Tira, Aeon, Hilde, Zasalamel, and most importantly Talim! I will link the awesome artwork of these... Click here to continue reading...

The official SOULCALIBUR twitter account (@hoshino_calibur) has confirmed today that the PS3 version of both SC5 and SC2HD are currently on sale in the PSN store. They will also be available for streaming play on Playstation Now (at least in Japan) on April 14.


Playstation Now is a cloud based service that allows you to play older Playstation titles on your PS4. With PSNow, you should be able to play various PS3 games on your PS4, with your PS4 peripherals. I can't speak for the quality of this for fighting games, since fighting games are far more sensitive to lag than other genres... but it's been relatively successful for other types of games.

Katsuhiro Harada is the executive producer of fighting games at Namco-Bandai. Take that as you will...

As most of you may know by now, Hoshino (@hoshino_calibur), who is the director of the Soulcalibur series as of 2013, has not been actively communicating with other users on Twitter. It is currently a Soulcalibur news station and not the voice or thoughts of the director himself. We generally see Twitter accounts for both game news and for the leading director when we take a look at other fighting games.

Why is Soulcalibur so different in comparison? Katsuhiro Harada (@Harada_TEKKEN), the director of the TEKKEN series, had this to say on Twitter yesterday in reply to a comment aimed at him. Click here to see tweets...

So there was a time when this website needed advertisements to maintain itself. We tend to see a spike in traffic when a new game is released, so back then, the ads were actually paying to keep this site running. But now, with the lull in traffic, the ads barely pay to keep this website running; in fact, they only account for about 40% of this website's operating costs.

However, even though the ads aren't doing it anymore; doesn't mean this website is closing! Those non-forum sections of this website, the calendar, streams, media library, etc... are all add-ons I've written for this website and then have gone on to sell licenses for other websites. And those license sales more than enough pay to keep our home warm and cozy!

Because of this, I've decided to remove the advertisements for all registered members! If you log into your account here at 8WAYRUN, the ads will go away; they will only be shown to guests, as an incentive to get them to register and join our community. That being said, there are still advantages to becoming a Premium Member, such as username changes, animated avatars, signature images and more...

It looks like it is that wonderful time of the year everybody! Grab your cups and gather some salty tears delivered from the heavens, which is also known as the event known as NEC. For those of you who don't know, NEC (Northeast Championships hosted by @eric) is the biggest Soulcalibur V tournament that will be taking place in December. If you want more information about the event, then check out NEC 16 | Big E Gaming (http://bigegaming.com/nec-16/) or our thread here on 8wayrun in the "Tournament Announcements" section. As of right now, French players confirmed for NEC are Keev, GolD ShaD, Deus Kaliya, and GolD Drataks.

However, the spotlight today is being given to you by GolD ShaD, the creator of an epic video that insults our American players. If you don't know who GolD ShaD is, he is an Alpha Patroklos player who got 4th at NEC 2014 and turned our hero Blueboy into the color red. He has also recently out-placed the Mexican Legend Lolo at the Edge Master Series tournament in London, which transformed him into the Mexican Legend Don Quixote. The heat that has been brought to the kitchen is in the form of a video that trashes LP and essentially challenges him for being known to some as the best Alpha Patroklos. Watch the video here...

A couple of days ago, I disabled our old event management system here on 8WAYRUN.com. Some of you noticed, most of you didn't. The reason for disabling our event system was that I was working on a new one! There were several issues with our old one... mostly that it was poorly programmed.

This new version aims to fix many of the issues with the old one, as well as add several new features. This post is not only an announcement of the new system, but also a guide on how to use several of the new features.

Namco Bandai has recently released a Lost Swords tribute video with the game's accolades. This video is closer to being a slideshow than a trailer, but that isn't what we all really care about.

The 2 million downloads is fantastic, but most North Americans don't actually want to play Lost Swords and are yearning for a traditional Soulcalibur game. Now that we have gotten the boring stuff out of the way, let's talk about the juicy parts of the news! Wow, so what does this all mean?!...

Devil Jin is a character that has been banned since the beginning of Soulcalibur V. Whether your reasoning for wanting him gone was due to his crazy pre-patch ringouts or his Tekken origins, the official reasoning for the ban was from the lack of a character model. This means that we are forced to use character creation mode to access him.

The potential problems with that is that there are certain hitbox issues that can be induced by the custom characters that cause unintended misses or hits. Recently, we have developed a team in response to the online players who use Devil Jin and don't want to go out to tournaments because of the ban.
