Also it's the only fighting game that doesn't let you choose wich character to play through the story in?

Mortal Kombat 9 got it's **** sucked hardcore for it's story and plays through in basically the exact same way.


I don't understand this comment.

The Mortal Kombat 9 story stood very well on it's own two feet and would have been difficult to implement to such quality if you could pick your toon.

Additionally, such a mode gives you good reason to learn more characters.

Yeah I have no problem with the 'static' story mode, MK9's was utterly amazing. The thing I liked about Soul Cal V story was it was actually a nice fit (Japanese voice acting was great). I made me think of the original game with the normal cast with the trio of heroes. Lets face it, 2, 3 and 4 (the worse story and boss) was completely insane and stupid.

Story Mode would have been more awesome if it had followed Zwei and/or Ivy rather than Whiny Little Bitch and his sister, though.

Also, Pyrrha exists solely to play to the moe fetishists.

What are people thinking of the netcode for this so far?

I had an online game yesterday, and it ran acceptably. There was some lagging right before the start of the round, which I'm guessing is some kind of synchronisation, but the fight itself was mostly lag-free (I even had a torrent running at the same time).

I'm not some anal-retentive frame-counting fighting game nerd though, so I couldn't say how good it is on that level. For me, it worked fine, and I beat my opponent handily.

If there's a weakness to the online, it's that there's no SFIV-style fight request feature. I'd really love something like that to be added.

The netcodes pretty solid from what I've played, about the same level as SF4.

Picked up this the other week, been chipping away at it, the story mode, and I'm completely getting owned by the Z.W.E.I / Nightmare fight. Sometimes i feel like I've got a chance, then other times, if he lands one hit, I'm screwed, never have a chance to get up, and don't seem to be able to role out of the way. Don't think i have the reflexes for a fighter.
edit: and then when i finally beat him, its with 2 perfect rounds.

Damn I'm finding I have to re-learn Natsu, she doesn't really play like Taki that I'm use to in previous Soul Caliburs, timing, reach and combos are a little different.

I'm so getting owned by the computer right now (on hard setting), should start using the joystick but that would require me to be not lazy.

I finished the story mode, wasn't too hard, didn't like how you have to use the character the story gave you, and I thought Pyrrha Ω, reminded me of Dark Saber from Fate Stay Night. icon_nn.gif

For those who don't know what I'm talking about, the left if Pyrrha Ω, and the one in the middle and right is Dark Saber without her armor and with.

We seem to get disconnected and kicked back to the lobby every 2 matches or so. We've managed to play for hours upon hours in other online games with no issues so I'm not sure what the problem could be. Perhaps it's the game?

Perhaps we should organise an AU SCV multiplayer session or something? Properly test this.

Ranking battles really should reflect other game time. I'm getting my ass handed to me at the moment by E5 ranked players so I took a look at their licenses and they have 50+ hours of gameplay experience. It's gonna take 100 losses to get a win in icon_confused.gif.

I attended a tournament recently and one of the pieces of advice I was given was to go to Quick Battle and select Opponents who are ranked C5 and above.

^ You mean ranked battles? I played 11 ranked battles today and got 4W and 7L. Not bad I guess as the other players were way better than me. I literally saw only one person with similar play time and rank. This game is so much more enjoyable with equal skilled opponents *looks in OropherX's direction* icon_razz.gif.

Also, I'm a little disturbed by some player's CaS fighters. Let's just say they have a fascination with putting phallus like objects on female characters icon_rolleyes.gif.

No no no, I meant the Quick Battle in Single Player mode, apparently helps you think of anti-human opponent tactics

We should icon_biggrin.gif, for the record I've only put in 8 hours into the game, so I'm not that good in this game...for now.

That said, it's only useful if you go for opponents Ranked C5 and above

That's around the same play time as me but I'm naturally bad at fighting games icon_razz.gif.

This weekend we could get a group going in SCV if you'd like. I'm pretty sure OropherX would be keen on that.
