Soul Calibur VI: General discussion

We already knew that Tira's 2p was coming since the underwear was in the base game. They are going to use the CaS DLC as a minimum effort cash grab. Hopefully that adds to the overall budget of the development? Eh, I dunno. I miss SCV.

Granted, I realize that Tira's SoulCalibur V 2p is already anachronistic as hell, I'm not sure how I feel about Siegfried's SoulCalibur V 1p. 2ps are arguably canon anyway, and they may actually just not be at all, but it's just kinda weird to be able to use it in the past, I think. Like, I know people were asking about Z.W.E.I. and Viola parts, but even if they did come out, they'd still feel weird, or like putting Sophitia in Pyrrha's outfit or putting Kilik in Xiba's outfit.

I'm happy to see Honor Boots (but no Ring Pants?!?!), and at least they picked some of the more tasteful Lost Swords stuff to bring in, and maybe some of the new parts, like that feathers set, could be used in useful ways, but as has been said, the conflicting with existing pieces is going to be an unseen concern until they come out, so we'll see how useful this stuff ends up being. Overall, I feel like about a 6/10 initial reaction to seeing this stuff.
They can give me SC5 outfits all day so long as i dont have to deal with SC5 characters. Sieg's is the best thing i've seen from this so far. They're just CAS parts that'll show up on any random character at the end of the day. It's just as silly as different characters wearing others' outfits as far as i'm concerned.

Now what the fuck makes them think that having a lot of recycled items is a good idea. A lot of them better be free dlc..
Same logic that made the race selection a good idea. Or the selection available at base game. Or the conflicting pieces obstacle. Or pieces attached to each other. Etc...

I hate most modern CAS parts too but we all definitely should've expected it. There is literally a flying robot in the game now. Why wouldn't they include modern era equipment given their recent selection of guest character?

Lack of equipment and the fact that basically everyone knew we'll be getting recycled stuff are the reasons I don't give a damn about CaS anymore, even tho I loved it in previous installments. I just won't be biting my tail in anticipation like some monkey waiting for its batch of bananas. Those bananas aren't fresh anymore.
I just want Cass and Amy and I'm done with DLCs and season pass crap (except for Rock if they'll actually release him)

If we do get some free CaS parts along the way, and/or if there are even more CaS parts to come in the season two pass, then I'm okay with some of the re-additions, but if the two packs is all we're getting, then I'd prefer if they would stick to period pieces and non-SoulCalibur V main character parts, just personally. It may be wishing for too much, but I'd rather see SoulCalibur II and SoulCalibur III legacy parts, if they're doing that. Because we only have so many confirmed parts to come, it should be better prioritized than what they've shown so far. I'm not excited about the idea of having to spend more money on more parts in a season two, but if that's what it takes to get all the parts back, then I'll still probably do it. For all this, though, they had better put all this stuff in SoulCalibur VII base, since making us buy all the same junk again would not go over well, about as well as selling us Edge Master.

I do not mind the anachronistic additions, but it should come as no surprise that the majority of these parts aren't new. And in all honesty, I would rather we receive all the equipment from SCIV and SCV first before anything new. That said, I don't believe 100+ pieces of equipment will come close to covering it.

I'm sorry but I just can't help but feel too much of y'all are pessimistic and that kind of attitude is just tiring to sort through and makes me wanna avoid this place like the plague, lol. I'm personally pleased at a lot of these additions and I can't wait for it to drop, though a lot of attitudes on here make it seem like we'd be better off not getting the DLC in the first place. Or any CaS DLC at all, really.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still hype. It's just that Bamco sucks at communicating. Anyway, my one hope is that, sure, I know there will also be past music in it, but I wish that, when it comes to the DLC parts in that pack, that there's more than what Bamco Taiwan leaked.

Most frustrating part about CAS is it seems they wont even hit like... the obvious basics. For example i dont see anything that resembles leather armor similar to what i'd see in any other game like Elder Scrolls. Closest thing we've got is that gladiator looking vest that has 20 belts on it. Yet we already have such an abundance of samurai and heavy knight themed equipment.

Even then, I'd prefer gambesons over leather armor.

True. It’s a shame the Hauberk has that chainmail look to it.

I already made a replacement for the Bong-Seong Circlet with the Pure Ring and Voldo’s eye spikes.

Still think essentials are more important than fancy stuff or definitely gimmick/gag items.

I dont hate the holy miter, in fact im sure i COULD make up a character to use it and look decent. But still... i think they should know damn well the majority of people dont design their characters in this fighting game with "priest" in mind. That should either be in base game or not available at all. There are other priorities. The crown is absurdly too big with the outdated "crown appearance". I mean... have they not seen a single source of material from any game, show or whatever? Haven't seen a crown like that in... well only for chess symbols and Soulcalibur, that is about it.
