Let's talk about Soul Calibur 2

  1. Hey, is anybody excited about Soul Calibur 2? I think its safe to say its the most anticipated fighter to date and probably will be the best fighter ever.

    I preordered my copy on Xbox back in June so I've been waiting a while for this one. I think it gets released sometime in mid-august.

    Some magazines (like Electronic Gaming Monthly) already have reviewed it in their latest issue and they've all gotten great reviews. They all seem to be split on which version is best. They seem to like the PS2 controller best, Xbox's graphics and load times best, and seem to be tied on playing as Link and Spawn. For the uninformed, each version of SC2 has an exclusive playable character (Spawn on Xbox, Link on Gamecube, Tekken's Heihachi on PS2).

    What characters do you guys use? In the first Soul Calibur I tore it up with Kilik and Nightmare, and will probably do the same again. And I really want to play as Spawn. I wouldn't mind playing as Link in the GC version, but i still refuse to buy a GC because of the horrid controller and only a few "must have" games.

    I know theres alot of game nuts here so I know I can't be the only one who wants this game bad. And another cool tidbit: one of the new characters, Necrid, was designed by Todd McFarlane. Cool. :cool:
  2. god, i LOVE SC for dreamcast. I ended up playing that with my friend tristan until 4 in the morning.

    As for SC2, i'm excited about it, but think that PS2 people should have gotten a better character

    i rocked the house with my main man (poo, whats his name, the nunchucks guy). me and my friends would play all the time and i got damn good with him. i will definately get sc2 on ps2, but i agree, we got a lame character, they could have at least picked a good tekken character, or something like a final fantasy character, how pimp would that have been! :meh:

    I usually rock it with kilik or maxipad with his reverse mullet. This game makes dreamcast worth buying by itself. I didn't buy dc though because i heard it was coming out for xbox. good stuff.
