Jaxel is the owner and operator of 8WAYRUN; so if you have any issues with the website, he's the one you should be bugging about it. During the days of SOULCALIBUR II, Jaxel may have been considered one of the top Talim players in the world. But since then, he has become a total scrub who can barely play at a competitive level. Keeping that in mind, you should take anything he says about the game with a massive load of salt.
I am hoping for VR. Also physics with soul calibur 2's 8 way run, and aerial juggle control. I hate when people can knock you in the air, and you might as well put the controller down. I loved being able to have some control over where I was in the air.
So if this actually is a reboot of SC1, does that mean we won't get younger characters like Talim or Tira back? Given that Talim would be 11 and Tira would be 13. Tira could still be a possibility, as Amy was most likely around 13, but I think that may conflict with some aspects of her backstory. We might potentially have replacements like we did for several characters in SC5, but this time they'd be older than the characters they're replacing, maybe? Idk, just spitballing ideas at the moment.
Also, now seeing a better look at Sophitia, I'm still not crazy about her design, but I've always preferred her secondary outfits anyways for the most part. And anything's better than Elysium and her lopsided thong tbh.
Yup I actually smiled the biggest grin in public while wearing headphones and my eyes started to water, the moment he said "before I leave the stage I want to ask you a question". Wasn't even embarrassed.
A rewritten history means that, chaos theory permitting, characters that were alive and of a proper age (sorry, Amy, probably Talim) at the time could still appear due to events not unfolding as they once did.
Decided to log back in after seeing the announcement. I became inactive due to there being no SCV scene in my area, especially since my area is dominated by Street Fighter and Tekken. However, I am very hyped for SCVI. Kind of sad that it's a SC reboot of sorts (I'm assuming), because I kind of liked some of the new generation fighters. But still, I know that Nightmare and Siegfried will be in, so not all is lost.
