Pedantic Gamers: “Transcending history and the world, a tale of swords and souls, eternally retold.”
I think I would like to start this off by asking: What the hell does that even mean?
I get that, sometimes, developers and writers like to come up with phrases and quotes to make their game seem deep, mythical, fantastic, or some odd, some such. This just comes off as silly; that being only one of the many things that this game series is known for. Soulcalibur V is the latest entry in Namco’s weapon-wielding fighting series, and it has started out as, quite easily, the most divisive in the series. Whether it’s the 17-year time jump, the new characters, the game being rushed and thus excluding certain characters… there are a lot of things that didn’t do this game any favours even before it hit the shelves.
