[QUOTE]I guess I have so little trust in getting something decent in the first place I'd settle for a few really good designs for a relaunch/rebirth/re-what-have-you. And if they did go all clothes rippity with DOA, I'd assume they'd get better results tweaking the effect per outfit.[/QUOTE] This is a good point, seeing as the replacement for "battle damage" on the custom costumes in SC4 just had them kind of...blow up. While I had fun kicking people until their pants blew up, I wouldn't call that the ideal solution to the problem. It's unfortunate that SF4 wasn't daring in so many ways, but the alt costumes hurts the most. Here, they could have dramatically re-imagined the characters and still hid behind the original designs. Instead, we get a couple chuckles, a handful of good ideas and a mound of garbage. I am worried that fear of innovation may result in a similar disappointment when DOA whatever does (or does not) come out. [QUOTE]I think Soul Calibur 4 succeeds where Tekken and especially VF on 2 points : first, being set in a crazy medieval universe with crazy weapons, the characters can wear almost whatever they want. I wouldn't put on any character from Tekken half of the stupid masks and awesome hats that I've routinely used in Calibur.[/QUOTE] You don't mean to imply that Tekken is not stupid, do you? Because I would argue that there is almost no limit to Tekken's stupidity. (this is in no way to its detriment, by the way) [QUOTE]Any impressions yet?[/QUOTE] I'm reserving judgment until I play the game, which with any luck, will be next week. As of now, I'm just glad that the size of the world is offset by your fast running speed. [QUOTE]I don't think any halfway decent characters have been written since...Final Fantasy X? Maybe XII if I limit it only to Balflear and nobody else in that stupid party. [/QUOTE] I'm sorry, but I really don't think you're even remotely qualified to make that statement. What percentage of the RPGs released since FFX have you played? I'm going to guess it's a significantly smaller number than what I've played, which is a significantly smaller number than the total released. I would agree that there's a fantastic array of detestable RPG characters, but there's no shortage of hidden gems, either.
