Soul Calibur V

Huhuhuhu.... Guess what we bought last friday?

Tadah! SOUL motherfuckin' CALIBUR V bitches!! I've been waiting for this game like forever and right now I couldn't be happier! WOHOO! Eventhough my first impression of the game was a bit disappointing, but after getting used to the new changes I absolutely love it!!

Ok, long story short.. Soul Calibur is a 3D fighting game where you fight with characters who wield different kind of weapons insted of just using bare fists like in Tekken or Dead or Alive. SC has some crappy storyline which usually includes the corrupted evil sword Soul Edge that needs to be destroyed with the "good sword" Soul Calibur. SC V's story takes place 17 years after the events of Soul Calibur IV so many of the games original characters have been replaced with new fighters. It's nice to have some new blood on the game but I still think some of them are just too cheap-ass clones from the previous characters. Thankfully there's few brand new fighters with really unique fighting styles that are really great addition to the series!

I've always considered Soul Calibur as one of my favourite fighting games and it's mostly because of the weapons and character creation. Usually fighting games tend to have only those utterly boring fistfights with nothing special in them so Soul Calibur definetly is a nice change to that bunch! But character creation is the thing that makes SC so great! With it you can make your own characters into the game. You can customize characters body, hair, armor, tatoos, voice etc. etc. You can customize in-game characters too! I usually spend more time to create characters other than playing the actual game! Custom characters really makes the game much more fun to play. XD Soul Calibur V is also beginner-friendly (imo), so don't worry if you haven't played fighting games before. You can still kick some ass!

There's also guest characters in Soul Calibur-games. In SC IV there was Darth Vader, the Apprentice (from Star Wars Forces Unleashed-game) and Yoda. Now the game have only one guest character, Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed-series. There's also "Soul of Devil Jin" (from Tekken) which is extra fighting style that you can use on custom characters.

But then the bad part (for me that is)... The BIGGEST UNFORGIVING MINUS in the Soul Calibur V is that Tira's (my ultimate favourite char) voice actor has changed!! My heart was broken when I heard Tira speak for the first time in the game. ლ(ಠ益ಠლ) How dare they replace Jennifer Hale (for example Mass Effects fem. Shepard's voice) with some random dudette?!? Grrraaahh!! Oh well... I got over it pretty soon since I found myself another favourite character besides Tira, and she is...

Pyrrha Ω (*0*)

Isn't she pretty? ( ^3^) ~ 
I've seriously kicked ass with my new fighter-lady!! Our friends are coming over on Friday so then we'll see if I can walk the walk. Haha!

That's all for now, sorry for the games-only updates but you know me...
Gotta love those games.


  1. Yay, I'm so glad you made a post about Soul Calibur V! :D I'm a huge Soul Edge/Soul Calibur fan, and I still have to buy V.

    I'm happy that you like Pyrrha, because I'm really curious from what I've read about her personality. I think she's really pretty and I like her character design, too. :D

  2. Thank you!! <3 Yeah, at first I was little sceptic about Pyrrha but after her transformation I absolutely fell in love with here!! She's so cool! (>w<)

  3. Woah Soul Calibur looks epic. O_O I want ps3 naow! I also love to spend more time on customizing my characters than actually playing the game (the sims is good example XD).

  4. Yeah, it sure does! PS3 ftw!! *0*)/ <3
    I have same "problem" with the sims too. XD But character customizing is just sooo fun ~ !! ;w;
