You are in too deep!
We're gonna get 50 this time, then Cassie or Amy, then the other 50.
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.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.
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...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..
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.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.
Even then, I'd prefer gambesons over leather armor.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.
I think priest. Battle priests are awesomeI 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.
