    I feel like that screen shot of jin belongs in some music video or something.

      Preferably with this being the music in the video:

         Oh I remember that. That game had some funny pairs, gotta love Project X zone for that if they add the same things *waiting for moar characters*

    Can we get Talim, Zasalamael, Yun-Seong, Seong Mina and Setsuka and extra chapters in the Story Mode already ?

      I second that. They should never have sent out an incomplete game

       way way too early for that. That will probably take some more months.

        Well, they better do it fast, or else the game is gonna fade away… it’s a good thing to emphasize on mutliplayer, like they did here, but it’s a really one to do it at the expense of lacking single-player content and favorite characters. Talim, Zasalamael, Yun-Seong, Seong Mina and Setsuka are all returning characters… that have unique fighting styles. In short, you can give me any new staff-wielding character that can replace Kilik, but if that new character plays like Kilik with a few tweaks, then I’ll be good. See ? In SC, we don’t play for the characters, but their fighting styles. In fact, I’m pretty sure that a lot of players made their own characters and chose the style that suit them best instead of just using an iconic character that has that style.

        Talim’s tonfa style, Zasalamael’s scythe style, Yun-Seong’s chinese saber style, Seong Mina’s single polearm style and Setsuka’s hidden blade style are all missing… and I’ll take that anyday over customization items. On a sidenote, they also said that the story mode was supposed to be longer… wouldn’t that a good way to complete it by sending us DLC chapters ?

           Agreed. Although I don’t think the game has the capacity for extra storylines. They did confirm that it supports dlc characters. But I’m not sure if the game itself supports extra storylines. I hope that it indeed supports storylines because unless you have the art book from the CE you actually have no idea what happened to the other characters.

            Ok, maybe I’ll get it wrong because I’m not a game designing wiz, but here’s how they could do for extra chapters.
            - They release extra DLC chapters, like one for each character (3 or 4 characters per package)
            - They also release a patch that upgrades the game so it can allow DLC chapters, like adding extra selectable modes, such as Story mode -> Viola’s vision / ZWEI’s vision / Ivy’s vision (vision, side, chronicle, whatever name they could give)
            - As for characters, they could just add the extra character in the custom character option, like you flip through your creation… and find a new character, like Talim for instance. No need to expand the select screen.

            The way I think they could do it is similar to how BlazBlue did it with the extra characters: they had free patches that changed the select screen to accommodate the 3 DLC characters. I’d said that if it can be done for characters, I’m pretty sure it can be done in menus and/or sub-menus.

            Adding new characters to the game is already baked into the game. They just have to make the content and release the character. However adding new story elements may be impossible depending on how they programmed it unless they made it in a way that it allows supporting additional content. This all needs to be built into the game otherwise the patch that they would have to do would be too complex and costly. The original plan was for every character to have a story. But it was cut from the game because they didn’t have enough time. Very few games actually add back the content they cut. However they might actually have though about adding the story through DLC and may have added the functionality. Wether that will come to pass or not rests solely on the creators of the game. We can only wait and hope.

      Can we get one where Patroklos and Pyrrha get killed by every other playable character?

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    still no new souls!?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_Q6NXXGMO5XNSMJ64NIHYHFP56A Vince

       Yeah. Kunai, Chinese Sword, Staff, Grieves etc.

    I don’t really care for more armor, but I’ll definitely want to pick up the modern and Tekken packs at some point. King seems like an odd choice, though, since he doesn’t really have much going on in his outfit, but oh well.

    I think they should release a Tekken hairstyles DLC pack, with the hairstyle of Alisa, Lars, Lili, Miguel, Asuka, etc…

    Oh damn! I wish the would put more in a pack because 240ms points for a two sets of armor oh well I am a sucker for Soul Calibur so I will be buying.

  • ArcadiaSymphonia

    If only they would put those fighting styles of tekken characters too!!! Only one can dream!!!

    • Guest

       You might as well play Tekken then

      • ArcadiaSymphonia

        I do play both just thought it would be cool to have king and ling xiaoyu’s fighting style like they did with devil jin’s

    • http://papped.webatu.com papped

       Would be too much work to balance (also the characters would play too differently from the other characters in the game).

      They need to add some single player content…

    You might as well play Tekken then

    There better be sneakers in those Modern Set DLC! That’s what I’m looking for, for my Modern-Day CaS characters!

    Still… I haven’t played SCV in a long time now after getting it. I can’t afford a better internet service at the moment so no online matches for me. :<

  • FACEFLICKER

     Can we get some im@s DLC costumes? Trying to make that Takane-inspired Viola ya dig?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eugenio-Gil/100000517635083 Eugenio Gil

    Though I think the dlc should focus on new characters and story chapters. I have to admit the Ancient Armor gear is downright gorgeous!

    If they want to keep on giving us more parts I hope they give us more ancient stuff. Armors and clothe from Classic-Medival-Renaissance eras! Also more mythological parts to do gods and demons or cursed warriors! That would be pretty epic XD
