I'm pre loading it right now on Steam. But I'm working the next two days!!! I work 12 hour shifts at a hospital, so...like...basically I won't REALLY be able to dig into it until Saturday/Sunday. Then I work Monday/Tuesday...and then Wednesday is a local around here I'm gonna try to check out. I won't be ready at all haha

The NDA is up and people are posting stuff on Twitter. Cervantes...looks like he's gonna be an issue...but then again he always has been so I guess it's fine

Reviews have started showing up for SC6.

It seems to be a heart-felt apology for 5s misteps; with two different story modes; one that focuses on your Create-a-Fighter on a globe spanning rpg adventure that more-or-less compares to the Chronicle mode from SC1 and 2. And also a character-driven story mode for each of the main roster, not unlike what was in Soul Blade on PS1.

Those are, collectively, my favorite modes in the entire series so I am enthused

I want to say I'm sorry for this, but it's just too glorious.

Am I missing something, or can you not load your created character into story mode?

I heard that apparently your Libra of Whatever character can't be used outside of that mode? I don't know WHY though since that's dumb.

I only played for an hour but I figured out that Siegfried's B6 combos into his Stomp. It's not good at all, but it is hilarious, and I definitely did it to someone online and laughed. This game is AMAZING

Raphael I only messed around with for a bit, but I hate that his A is his old hilt strike...he has other A moves that work as a proper horizontal attack, but it just feels kinda weird. I mean, Raph having shitty As is his whole THING, so it makes sense, but it literally has no horizontal coverage at all with his basic A, so it's just...strange. Overall he seems to have a lot of interesting tools, but I feel like he's more complex than he's been since SC2 (in a good way)

I super don't want to go to work today, argggghhhhhh

I did nothing but mess around in training mode and give Taki a less ridiculous outfit, but so far, this seems a lot better that IV (the last one I played). I'm looking forward to playing more.

I also appreciate that this game takes an anime game approach and makes all the characters super unique. Everyone has their own moves and stances, so they're already pretty unique, but even beyond that people have hidden unique properties. Seong Mina does more damage with the tip of her spear, Siegfried has Dark Legacy, Yoshimitsu has his Soul Steal moves, Nightmare has Night Terror Charge, Taki's purple sword does chip damage...everyone's got SOMETHING. It's really cool, this game is so sick, good LORD

I wasn't planning on getting this, but all the reviews are convincing me to head to Gamestop after work and pick it and the season pass up.

However, other than Tira, any rumors as to who the other characters are going to be?

Can you redesign your Libra character after they’ve been created, or are you stuck with the same dude for the whole campaign like in SC3?

The character editor is...very...robust

Warning: NSFW or anywhere else

Edit: as a palette cleanser, here's Magikarp vs. Spider-Man

That's nothing new. People were doing that in SCV as well.

Visualizing a combo in your mind, and then practicing it for 20 minutes going. "I know this can work." Then finally pulling it off is the most satisfying thing ever.

They did it! They were wise to do it.

Despite my love for the game itself, I actually wasn't a huge fan of 2B herself (A2 better) but SC6 also getting N:A music through this crossover? And an Emil head, to finally provide the Make-Your-Own-Emil simulator the world needs? Good. Very good.

I'd guess if she gets an alt costume like everyone but Geralt, it'll be A2?

Yeah, 2B is the most prominent ass goddammit PS SHARE face of NieR:Automata, but both 9S and A2 were far more developed and interesting as characters than her.

It's awesome she's in, of course.

I'm surprised that Geralt doesn't have an alt costume. You could dress him up however in Witcher III, and Blood and Wine's promo render had him dressed differently.
