Soul Calibur VI: General discussion

That's kind of funny, I was literally thinking about that this morning. I love the idea, and I can't imagine it'd be too hard to implement. It'd be especially awesome if we keep getting the old music. I can't wait for Midnight Mystique and Sleepless: an untamed beast, as well as Indomitable Warrior.
Dance of the Oracle, honestly despite SCIV and V being downhill for me they had some very nice tracks. I want all music back, and their unique per game mixes. I hope they approach it this way.

I'm sure a lot of people would like to see the money pit/Torture chamber as well as the valentine's mansion. The fort stages were pretty awesome imo too.

I never knew how much I wanted this until I heard it.
Yeah I figured it was worth mentioning somewhere so that people may take interest and talk about, hopefully prompting the devs to do it. For the fans who didn't enjoy SCIV, V it may also be a nice way of giving them its content without them full on playing it, while to me not perfect games they had some very nice qualities.

Also vouching for valentine manor and money pit, SC3 Money pit may be my favorite variant personally!

I want to tell them that 2B's damaged uniform should be compatible with Talim's and Amy's shorts. Better yet give us the option to disable armor break like seriously.
I noticed recently since my brother has just been doing a completion run on SC4 that they didn't add the broken variant of Amy's SC4 costume which is a little disappointing in a sense if that's what it means for other characters old outfits going forward. Especially since we can't disable armour breaks.
I hope armour break disabled option becomes a thing in the future, I really do. Sick of playing Amy and her feet spontaneously showing themselves. Not like SC4 where her leggings got torn up and her boots too, I'd rather it just doesn't break.

Being totally fair, it was this way also in SoulCalibur IV. Only the main characters wearing their default outfits would behave as you describe, with battle damage. If you used Amy's outfit on a custom character or on another character it would behave just as it does in this game with regards to breaking.

Oh no I'm aware, they can't add a broken variant for every outfit but this attire already has one and it was a main outfit too. There's really no reason for it to be lacking a broken variant. It worked that way in SC4 for some odd reason but in SCVI it doesn't really matter since main outfits still break in CAS edits. (I believe they do at least?) Its not any harder than any of the other ports they've done.
Can't really speak for the Siegfried and Tira outfits since I'm unaware if the SCV outfits had proper breaks for those two, I don't really remember.

It just seems peculiar because its not like its general cas parts, its genuinely her old attire. If anyone got their old main outfits I'd want their broken variants in too if they had any.

Yes, the SoulCalibur V outfits had proper breaks as well, breaks that only worked on the actual characters, not the CaS parts that came out as DLC later on. The break animations are baked into the unique models associated with the characters, since you'll notice if you look at specifics, that the CaS parts are ever so slightly different than how they are on the unique models, some things disproportionate, some things less detailed. Basically, I'm saying it's always been this way, but they didn't give us broken costume pieces for either SoulCalibur IV or SoulCalibur V. They started this as a new thing for SoulCalibur VI.

I know that's how its been but this isn't just SCIV/V we are on VI. I'm just pointing out its rather lazy of them considering the simplicity. I understand they're on a low budget though, but it sucks that main outfits don't get the treatment at least.

I mean its a bit disappointing considering its something I could even do. With shoes especially even easier to be honest. Them not giving us broken costume pieces is barely an excuse since they already exist, they just have tear them apart from a main model. (Or apply the textures in a fair few cases)
Wish they tried with this at the very least for the very simple outfits.

Thanks for mention on SCV though, I might go check out the unique costume breaks.

Adding options for parts to be unbreakable would be neato especially since some items don't work with underwear and since character running around in their underwear not only looks silly but takes away from the creation tool itself
Yeah, it'd be nice to be able to select what gets broken and what doesn't would allow us to keep armor break if we like, without having to lose the whole costume or theme of the CaS

It’s also quite funny how the armor break gets progressively worse throughout the series. It wasn’t all that great for CaS but for the main cast in their standard and 2P costumes it was fine (Hilde for example would gradually lose her armor depending on which area took the most damage). In 5 your whole armor shatters when KO’d by certain attacks, still not great with CaS.

Then we reach SCVI where everyone (minus Geralt), can now run around fighting in their underwear mid battle. Time to rename this to Strip Calibur VI. Kappa

Wait wait wait...

JUST DANCE 2019 and no DOA6.

Honestly it’s starting to get a little ridiculous LOL.

DOA6 is a really good game (I have little experience but the scene seems lively) it’s fun and it’s competitive matches are really fun to watch.

The mix up top 8 for DOA6 was hype.
Samsho just booted DOA6 off the main stage and I’m sure the entries will be a lot higher for DOA in comparison.
