Now that's a random crossover. Guess they needed something other than a tournament of random fighters (which is pretty much every fighting game like it) trying to get to the sword.

I still think it's funny that when Kilik gets it, he only meditates over it in a cave.

I thought it was a cool idea until I heard about them being exclusive. 360 gets Yoda and PS3 gets Darth Vader.

Way to ruin some Yoda vs Darth Vader fun.

Yay, I get Yoda!

That is pretty awesome, it's a great way to get more people to play.

That's very interesting to say the least. I like the idea of having Vader and Yoda as characters. If the Wii was getting a version I would guess Luke would be their exlcusive. Having Star Wars characters is pretty damn surprising, but it's not easy coming up with better sword fighters than the guys from the SW universe.

Am I the only one who dislikes this?

Who very strongly dislikes this?

I was afraid of that.

I have this weird thing about game universes: I like when they make sense and remain internally consistent. I could tolerate Link in SC2, as he was similar enough to not be too much of a problem, but most of these random crossovers in otherwise-consistent series just annoy me. You want to make a crazy crossover game? Fine, that doesn't bug me (I quite enjoy some of 'em). Just don't screw with the non-crossover series, that's all I ask.

But because it's got Star Wars, it'll sell, which is exactly what they were after.

Dude, You do know that I can * Almost * guarantee that the Soul Caliber community pretty much likes Star Wars.

Granted, I never seen the movie myself, but its NOT gonna fucking sell because it has "Star Wars" characters on it. Its gonna sell BECAUSE its a bad-ass fighting game that takes some decent about of skill (Fuck you Maxi) to learn and master, and is fun PLAYING it.

Thats almost like saying The only way for Smash Brothers to sell is because it has "Snake" in it. "Oh everyone likes Snake, so obviously Nintendo has to put him in there because it has to sell". No the fuck not, that SHOULDENT be the reason on why this game has to sell.

I mean seriously, I cant be the ONLY one to think this? Soul Caliber is a great game on its own, putting different characters from two completely different stories into might not be on "Your" standards, but if it was done, I would think it would be pretty cool, and just the fact that they are adding elements of fighting styles in this game is FUCKING AWESOME!

I have to admit that this particular crossover seems a bit much, and the series will be ruined if they keep doing it, or at least change to something that isn't SC anymore.

Chances are they'll both be insanely cheap characters and everyone will hate them.

Especially Yoda, I mean just look at his height.

But you made it sound like that. He has a valid point that counteracts what you said. That's more useful than you defending yourself by insulting his point and then defending yourself.

My defense is really all that's needed to refute the majority of his post. For further defense, my post retains its full intended meaning if you remove the final line.

But just to humor you, I'll go into further detail. We've got quite a history of arguing, after all, and it'd be such a shame to throw that away.

1. Star Wars does not fit in the Soul Calibur universe at all. Undisputable, as far as I'm concerned. Ok, lightsabers are basically fancy swords, but that brings me to point number 2.

2. It is impossible to give Yoda and Darth Vader appropriate power levels relative to the rest of the cast without drastically weakening them. Either you piss the Star Wars crowd off, or you piss the Soul Calibur crowd off. Or, if you really fuck up, you piss them both off. Give them any Force abilities and you get the same complaints about them that you had about Link in Soul Calibur 2. And has everyone forgotten that lightsabers cut through damn near everything?


In short, add them, subtract a consistent game world.

Edit: Oh, while I'm here, I addressed a related topic with Shaddow in AIM. He did not ask me to post this.

[17:41] Shaddow: I like Xeo.
[17:41] Shaddow: I mean, the idea is dumb to begin with
[17:41] Shaddow: but I FULLY agree
[17:42] Shaddow: that not being allowed to Yoda vs Darth Vader is Lame
[17:42] Cheveyo: oh, yeah
[17:42] Cheveyo: I agree with that too
[17:42] Cheveyo: but I think console-exclusive characters are a retarded concept to begin with
[17:43] Cheveyo: SC2 would've been better off as a game without any of the console exclusives
[17:43] Shaddow: I agree
[17:43] Cheveyo: one of the largest problems with console exclusive characters
[17:43] Cheveyo: [17:42] Shaddow: that not being allowed to Yoda vs Darth Vader is Lame
[17:43] Cheveyo: that.
[17:44] Cheveyo: so if two people happened to have Link and Spawn as their two best characters
[17:44] Cheveyo: they wouldn't be able to fight each other at their best
[17:44] Cheveyo: random example, you get the idea

Riiiight, they diddnt do it in other games. Why now.

Like every other Star Wars fighting game, Light Sabers diddnt cut limbs off or did the things like in the movies. It might have in other games, But I have a couple of classics, and they diddnt in videogames.

But you go ahead and keep arguing, and go right ahead and try to defend yourself by insulting me then backing yourself up in the process. I really dont care, im not going to act like a 4 year old.

And to quote you, here you are required to play the fucking games. You wont know how cheesy it is until you actually play it.

There, Im done. Im Excited to play this.

Many edits- A Couple of things removed that were irrelevant
