i have the 360 version. yodsa kind of sucks. but that's to be expected for a gimmick character.

so how badass is this, because the reviews have been like 9/10 but it's nothing new over sc2 except killer gfx

The create-yr-own-character mode is awesome because it gives me the ability to play a Talim-style character without having to actually play as a 10-year-old girl. Also the story mode is great, largely because I had huge chunks of the mythology totally wrong (for example, I though Ivy was evil...?) and also because of the awesome Siegfried/Nightmare endings. The new characters are kind of bizarre but cool (although too many are yelpy) and Darth Vader actually plays pretty well all things considered.

Thanks! That sounds really good. How is the tower of power thing? the reviews make it sound interesting.
― Euler, Monday, 4 August 2008 15:09 (ten years ago) link
I was thinking of getting this but tbh i realise i'm not a huge fight fan, and i rarely played the prev versions.
i can imagine the online play would be a visual fest of my arse getting kicked forever.

just got this!

I just started ascending the tower; it's very reminiscent of the awesome quest mode in SCII, which means I like it a lot. It's a tiny bit aggravating that you have no idea what conditions will unlock the unlockables until you've met them, though.
― HI DERE, Monday, 4 August 2008 15:44 (ten years ago) link
ok cool. I only played through the quest mode in SC2 earlier this year, but it was totally fun.

OKAY WHO ELSE IN THIS BITCH HAS THIS AWESOME AWESOME GAME

ok I am still Wii-only, what system is this shit on because this is probably going to be the one that drives me over the edge
you guys all underestimate Siegfried btw

^^^ doing the tower of lost souls right now and sieg is #1 A+++ character for all time dude's ring outs are the key to a bunch of the challenges

Man, SC IV really came and went didn't it? I remember when SC II's release was such a big deal - the last two seem to have really fallen out of the spotlight.

It's on both X-Box and PS3 and each has their own extra Star Wars character added (X-Box has Yoda, PS3 has Darth Vader). I don't know about X-Box but I know you can buy and download Yoda for PS3 because that's what I did ^_^
Taki/Kilik/Siegfried are like my all-time yoga-flame triumverate.

― Lamp, Friday, 16 January 2009 20:19 (ten years ago) link
how i miss the days having the gang around playing this, and calling Siegfried 'Seinfeld' all the time. oh the laffs.

God damn it, before this thread woke up I was completely over the "I have got to break down and get either a PS3 or an X-box" fever that afflicted me through most of autumn

can someone please get a picure of yoshimitsu standing beside ivy and caption it "so not gonna happen"

the star wars stuff in this game is what ruined it for me
― Jeff LeVine, Friday, 16 January 2009 22:05 (ten years ago) link
just ignore that part of it the rest of the game is totally rad Scheherazade's story alone justifies the game
― Lamp, Friday, 16 January 2009 22:11 (ten years ago) link
Played a little IV tonight - it really is an amazing looking game. I wish it had a tutorial mode :(
People seem to still be playing it! I tried the online mode (ps3) and got a surprisingly lag free game in about a second.
Any good guides online? I might try to put some time into finally learning a bit (at least until BlazBlue and KoF 12 come out).
― Jeff LeVine, Monday, 8 June 2009 06:05 (ten years ago) link
It seems like trying to block in this game only gets you into trouble?
― Jeff LeVine, Tuesday, 9 June 2009 02:53 (ten years ago) link
damn this game looks sick
― reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 22 October 2018 18:39 (nine months ago) link
yeah the new one looks fun but somewhere along the way since the last one i played (2 or 3?) it's also reached dead or alive levels of fanservice which idk how i feel about that
― ciderpress, Monday, 22 October 2018 22:23 (nine months ago) link
Geralt and 2B much more apt guest characters than the darth vader bullshit the older ones had
― ciderpress, Saturday, 27 October 2018 16:18 (eight months ago) link
I bought this last week. The fighting is a lot of fun, but the lack of variety in the stages is seriously disappointing. The epic backdrops were always a huge part of the fun of these games for me. The eleven here are nicely rendered but fairly generic. With the Libra of Souls mode you really get tired of seeing the same forest backdrop over and over. >:(
