Soul Calibur VI: General discussion

HackNslash

[07] Duelist
"No...it's not okay." — :sc2tal1:

I really miss the relationship between those two it was different than Kilik - X, Mina - Hwang, Amy - Raphael
It seemed like a healthy genuine friendship, they should of kicked more ass as a team!

Here's the full cast for the Comic Con panel. As JayShadow said, there's no Okubo:

So 21st (Tokyo Stage tournament) or 4th of August (EVO finals) it is. In other words, it's gonna be the EVO finals.
Is it just me or is it weird that Harada now head of the fighting game commity at Namco hasn’t staged anything like this for Soulcalibur and that Okubo and two others have to stream on YouTube with a hashed out translation guide to follow.

And major side eye for a weapon based 2D fighter along side a hand to hand 3D fighter with Soulcalibur still sitting in the trenches.

What the fuck is that, am I missing something?

Harada only cares about bringing Tekken the glory it rightfully deserves.

Adding the Astral Fissure variants of the maps really seems like it should be a no-brainer, with practically zero effort. Not sure why they can't at least give us that. I really doubt a Team Battle mode, if we're trying to be realistic, though the mechanic for the idea is certainly already in the game, for single player.

I do believe that we'll get at least one more stage, to even out the stage selection screen. And my personal bets are set on Seong Dojang. If they added two, they would throw off the symmetry again, so it would either have to be one or three, not two. If we were doing three, I'd say Money Pit and Azwel's Study Valentine Mansion, or if not Valentine Mansion... Jyurakudai Villa, to cap off the last of season two with Setsuka. That would be pretty amazing. But very seriously, I would just say one is the most likely outcome.

I'm not even going to entertain the idea of a season three. There just isn't room for it, and not even Tekken is getting a season three. But I do feel like season two, at its minimum expectancy of six characters and one stage, the game will feel more than adequate, if not great. I absolutely expect to get SoulCalibur IV and SoulCalibur V soundtracks with Cassandra, too, and you left that out of your list. It just doesn't make much sense for them to come this far and then not give the rest of the music, particularly because they used Dance of the Oracle in Amy's Soul Chronicle.
There are high chances Tekken 7 will be getting a season 3.

Now that you're saying it, it's weird indeed. Harada is a huge SamSho fan but still weird. (as soon as it doesn't mean a SamSho Guest is coming to T7 duh?). But for Okubo in the other note maybe it's just that he's being too busy with Cassandra (and Season 2?) to come out at this event, also consider that Evo is around the corner and Okubo will be there, so it's not really surprising that Okubo won't be at SCC.

I thought Harada told people to calm down on that, that it was just going to be art and soundtrack stuff for the new DLC? It could be trolling, but...
He also told people there won't be reveal at last year Evo.

Plus they already hinted so much at S3 T7 that at this point chances are pretty high, and it just make more sense since this year T7 have more entrences than both 2017 and 2018 Evos. But I can understand Harada here, guess he doesn't like the idea of making you watch a tournament only because of reveal.

Ehh, I don't really think we're missing much by not having the astral fissure stages: all it does is add a least-possible-amount-effort instagram filter to the sky with a few generic effects. If it was added, I'd hope for it to be just for a couple of levels, with other stages getting different light cycle/time of day variants

Yeah, but as I was saying--I was already way out in fantasy land in speculating that even a third of that list get made, so I might as well throw in something I think is long overdue for a return.

I mean, they could always just balance the screen manually. I'm not holding my breath on any extra stages and yet, paradoxically, if they did start adding more stages, I'd hope they wouldn't stop at one.
I'm not even going to entertain the idea of a season three.
Oh yeah, you're preaching to the choir: season three is just a pipe dream I like to speculate about, but I don't have descriptors for how surprised I'd be if it actually happened.
and not even Tekken is getting a season three.
Now that I'm not so sure of. Tekken is the cash cow; it probably makes more sense to create a third season for that game than a second for SCVI, from a strictly profit motive perspective.
But I do feel like season two, at its minimum expectancy of six characters and one stage, the game will feel more than adequate, if not great.
I'll buy whatever they release, but I meant what I said: I'd need to see everything on that list before bumping this into the upper echelons of the franchise. It's just disappointed on so many levels as is, for yours truly anyway.
I absolutely expect to get SoulCalibur IV and SoulCalibur V soundtracks with Cassandra, too, and you left that out of your list.
No I didn't. :) I think it's possible that will be delayed until season two, mind you, but I'm hoping that is not the case.

From your lips to Okubo's ears--that's one of the few parts of the game looking to be comprehensive. Of course, it just further hilights just how much the stage selection sucks, to have 80 tracks (or whatever it is) usable on 12 whole stages....

A week from today is Cassandra's birthday or something. If she was due to be released july 20 (She won't be) then I think the Steam.DB would have updated but nope nothing for her.

I don't think anyone was really expecting her to be released on the 19th-21st, just announced, with the tagline of release date: SOON. Though the hope would be that she would come out the following Tuesday/Thursday, the week after is also certainly possible.

Those things tank performance, which is kinda acceptable in a single player story mode, but not acceptable in multiplayer. They didn't even add 2B's stage into ranked for the same reason and 2B's stage is not near as bad as Astral Fissure variants can get.

I bet the one stage to restore the symmetry they had in mind from the very beginning is a Season 2 guest character stage, after all so far every guest in SC6 had a stage bundled with them.
Also I think in the latest Q&A Okubo did say they will try to add more stages (plural) into the game due to the popular demand even if it's expensive, so we actually might get more.

P.S. Meanwhile in DoA6 land the second season has been already just announced with specific details to be revealed in a week...

See, now this shit bothers me.

That DOA6 got ahead of SC6 all things considering, is a Lethal Hit.

There is no excuse for PS for this one. They are looking pathetic right now.

Get your fucking ass in gear and start releasing the content.

But first they should probably start communicating with the community more, which they’ve also been really terrible with as of late.

To be fair if more DLC for SC6 means adding KOF characters that no one asked for, and some clown fiesta costumes that don't even fit the characters, i'd rather SC6 won't have DLC anymore.

You mean to say "ANOTHER clown fiesta" I'm sure.
I mean, the DLCs they have released up untill now sometimes don't fit into almost anything, yet I have seen some designs that utilise them pretty well, so, I wouldn't be too bothered by that. With one exception, but oh well~

At least for SC6 it's CaS and not just costumes, so even if a lot of them don't fits as they are, but working with those you can make something fitting. In DOA6 in the other hands the costumes are as they are so you either like them or not, no option to make things more suitable.

Obvious solution: Make at least one generic anime character to fit any costume they make Kappa
