It's too bad the kicked her off in SCV...maybe it was for the best. All the cool characters became really lame in 5!

I haven't been on this forum (or gaiaonline) in quite a while, but I just got Soul Calibur 5 and felt like discussing it with casuals (ie non SRK/8WR/dustloop forum goers). So far my favorites are Patroklos, Leixia, and Dampierre, though I've been practicing Astaroth's grab you by your ankles and pound your face to much wall combo.
Also, totally agree that Natsu is a b***h to attempt to fight, even as a computer.
I feel handicapped when i play on 5'. I was extremely disappointed. Killing off my characters and leaving the rest gay and colorful like Cervantes! (Did you see his new costume?!)

Did you see is costume in legendary soul? I don;t care how gay he looks, GIVE ME THAT ******** COSTUME!

Best character.
2=Cassandra
4= Zasalamel/Cervantes
5= Pyrra Omega


I really with they would at least give us the removed styles as DLC. And let us play them they way we did in SC4. I would love to see ZASALAMEL's style again. The guy who i can rock with, and then if you back me into a corner you go off the edge. (Did that online. A guy liked ring outs, so I whooped him in a cage match. then we played on a stage with ring outs and I was the one to ring out because every time i got close to an edge i would just flip him off the stage. Its fun teaching a person to play nice.

I'm unsure how to ask this, but what do you get for defeating Legendary Souls mode in "Soul Calibur V"?

I've already unlocked Algol by battling the CPU player Teramos in Quick Battle and winning.
All stages with music tracks have been unlocked as well.
I'm on level 75, I believe as of this typing.
Quick Battle has been completed 100%.

Please send over a PM if you can answer this for me.
Favorite Character: Captain Cervantes, Raphael
Worst Character: Ivy
Favorite Stage: Battlefeild stage(idk what it's called) or any stage with no walls or where i can be ringed out.
Play Style: Single Strike/Small Combos, Mind-read with Cervy or Hyper Aggressive with Rapheal
Rank: C2(on SC5)
Tag: Cedrik Toles(Xbox360)
Fastest Arcade Time: 4:21 with Viola modded with Rapheal style

Magnetic Sex Symbol

I just got soul caliber 5 and am sad to say its my least favorite soul caliber ever
Here are my complaints:
(Mind you i've played this series since 2 came out when i was like 10 and i'm almost 20 now safe to say i usually LOOOVE this series!)
They've given some old moves really weird delays/timings
And certain characters fighting styles have been waaaay overpowered (setsune/patrokolos and astroth much?) while others have been critically weaken (what the hell sophitia style?).
The AI seems really unbalanced i get frustrated with a few fighting styles in normal mode in ways i only experienced in past games when i was playing on ******** mode. While the majority of the characters i can wipe up in an instant.
All in all the changes are making it really hard for someone like me, who are used to how its battle engine used to work and how the characters used to be balanced.
And the one player/offline play seems to have be totally sloppily made, the usually big story modes have been reduced to 2 hours worth of play and 3 characters stories at best!
They have 3 mimics while removing 3 of the older characters (talim even though she stank in 4 i remember her fondly from 2, zasalamel and seung mina.)
And other than quick play there's no fun fighting mode like tower of souls or w/e.
:/ All this makes me rather disappointed, this is my favorite fighting game series.

Has anyone else played it and felt some of this?

I didnt buy soul calibur for the story. and the new game engine is something to get used to. meters add an interesting element of gameplay (mind you i didnt like it at first, but it grew on me). honestly the game isnt ridiculously imbalanced. even though devil jin is banned its not like anyone (that ive seen online) is amazing at him. (plus players tend to stay away from banned characters)
