Sundae Funday: Soulcalibur V And Mario Kart Customization

By Ishaan . July 31, 2011 . 10:58am

Sundae Funday! I don’t have anything particularly interesting to say this week, except that I spent a fair part of my weekend reading and watching up on Vocaloids, both for fun and research. A scary thought, considering I knew next to nothing about Vocaloids a few months ago, but certain people on the site have managed to get me to take an interest just long enough for the fascination to take over.


And with that…on to three stories you may have missed (oops!) or ignored (booo!) this past week:


Taito’s Groove Coaster Is An Audio-Visual Rollercoaster

Groove Coaster is a Taito iOS game, designed by the creator of Space Invaders: Infinity Gene. It’s also on sale for a dollar until the end of next week.


CyberConnect2 Is Creating Soulcalibur V’s Story

Wow, CyberConnect2 sure do get around. Amongst other things, they’re creating storyboards for Soulcalibur V.  I was very surprised when Spencer told me about this before posting it to the site. It’s nice to see them take a break from .hack and work on a wider range of games.


I Made An Off-Roader And A Glider With Mario Kart’s Kart Customization System

Mario Kart 7 is the first game to have a number on it. It’s also the first with a full kart customization feature, which we got to experiment with at Comic-Con.




Colourful “crazy ice-cream” picture sourced from someone’s Flickr album. It reminds me of the Rainbow Road track…

    I can’t get over how pretty that ice cream looks. @[email protected]

    • Ereek

      I don’t know. It’s pretty, but I hope it’s shopped, because it looks decidedly unhealthy.

      • Guest

        Haha who cares, you sound like my mom. ;)

        Unhealthy to unhealthy people maybe.  To those that take good care of their body not so much really lol.

        • I don’t think he means it looks unhealthy from a nutritional standpoint. I think he means it looks radioactive with all it’s neon deliciousness.

          • Ereek

            You would be correct.

    • I know, it’s just lovely! It reminds me of cotton candy…

  • Hmm no news yet on Fate/Extra? The sadness. The Soul Calibur V news was the only thing that interested me this week…here’s hoping for more news about both SCV and Fate/Extra soon. Do we at least know if Fate/Extra will be a physical copy?

    • SerendipityX

       I think its already been confirmed that there’s going to a physical and PSN release.

  • DanteJones

    Joker-themed ice cream? I’m half expecting it to explode with a “BANG!” flag popping out of the cone. 

  • Missed the Soul Calibur one! :O Thanks Sundae Fundaaay!

  • HistorysGreatestMonster

    They revealed another Soul Calibur V character at EVO today, but I can’t find any pictures anywhere on the net.
