Soul Calibur VI: General discussion

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a, single mimic and as a matter of fact, Inferno is perfect for that role for a few reasons. What will be bullshit is if we get a 90% Nightmare clone Inferno while they use Edgemaster for mimic, or anyone else. Because at that point its wasting development resources and effort on a mimic that could go to making a new character. Most obvious example would be giving Edgemaster his own moveset. That is something a lot of us including myself would like to see.

Another acceptable alternative for Inferno would be if his moveset was a more varied combination of different characters. So in other words rather than 90%Nightmare, 10% Night Terror we could get something like 40%Nightmare, 20%Cervantes, 20%Astaroth, 20%Lizardman, or whatever.

I suppose i could be getting a bit ahead of myself with the concern. For all i know, there could be no mimic at all. However i honestly dont think PS will skip it entirely and as some others have pointed out, a random mimic does have a purpose.

I wish they'd let us select the movesets that randomly appear.

Hmm what I remember from SCII is when you fight against Inferno for the first round, he's always mimicking your fighting style. I wonder if he regains this mirroring quality in sc6. Apparently it's not working like that in the story mode where he appears to have Nightmare fighting style against Xianghua, but it could be different once he's playable.

My personnal dream-team would have been Night Terror as non-playable boss, Edgemaster as Mimic and Infernugget to oblivion.Edgemaster make imo a better mimic because of his tutoring role. He also fits better with feminime moveset than Inferno.

Would make sense, and I certainly wouldn't be opposed to it (gee I wonder why).

Me when the demo was announced: "I don't want my first experience to be tarnished by getting my ass kicked online over and over. I'll wait for October 19th".

Me 1 day before the demo is available for download: "BUT SOULCALIBUR VI!"

XD I'm gonna be debating over it for hours. Gonna try to stay strong. Just 3 weeks... 3 weeks...

Its exactly the opposite. A skeletal, demonic, genderless creature fits every movelist better than a male can. Inferno's power is quite literally copying people. Edgemaster despite being immortal and knows how to properly wield every weapon does not at all even imply he would do so exactly as the other characters do. Nor does it imply that he carries around every type of weapon. Realistically Edgemaster is probably not going to use Xianghua's crybaby but Inferno might if it decides to copy her.

Were you going to play this on PC?
I figure the PS4 playerbase will be larger and in general more skilled than Xbox but i wonder what the PC player base for this game will be like?

You know what? Now that i read your post a bit more clearly it seems obvious you intended to purchase a PS4 before release so nevermind my question.

Really by who? It’s not like you’re playing only pros out there, most people just button mash. If you do go against a pro then just learn from the experience.
I know but still I would have liked to play with cpu first to train a little bit and see characters moves in peace

both, i will get it for PS and PC not sure about the season pass but if they make the right decisions about the SP, i will be getting them both with a SP.

Setsuka,Hilde and 2B would be perfect DLC bait.
i would prefer the seasonpass to have Cassandra, Setsuka and 2B this would be ideal for me. i can live with Hilde or no guess character in the SP at all.

IDK if you all heard, but Sony is finally opening up crossplay for Fortnite against X1 and Switch. This means huge things for fighting games, especially more niche ones with smaller audiences.

@artard4321
are modern home consoles even able to be data mined ?
As far as I know, the Switch is (to an extent), however, the PS4/X1 aren't.
Of course they are. A couple of the Dragon Ball games as well as SFV were all datamined on PS4. Every console can be broken, the only variable is the effort.
