IGN do a preview on how Darth Vader plays in the new Soul Calibur 4.
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooo!
Darth Vader > Yoda Superior D-PAD + superior characters = Only on PlayStation 3.
so true have you seen the cover of the games at gamestop dude i like the darth vader one allot better then the yoda
Darth Vader kicks ass.
"Having seen the game running on both the 360 and PS3, we're a little worried that the PS3 version suffers from significant slowdown as opposed to the extremely smooth 360 build" + significant slowdown only on the PS3.
At least its above the 10FPS Ninja Gaiden 2 gets.
GiantEnemyCrab, any evidence of the slowdown? ... ... I thought so.
Yes, the evidence is written in this very article. Where do you think I got that quote from? What I'd like to see is the proof that NG2 runs at 10fps like Vicophine states. Nice way to deflect by making up pure BS. To be fair however, the game still has dev time left so it could turn out to be equal to the 360 version at retail. (see I can be reasonable) @2.8: Again, please provide a link to someone who has played it and says it's a literal slideshow. When I read things like this from the most recent review posted here: "The shinning points of the game are the responsive controls and the smooth and fast gameplay" Doesn't make it sound like a slideshow at all and this is from someone who has played it not talking out of their pooper. http://gameinformer.com/NR/...
And they said they were a *little* worried. The game is only a month away or so. There's plenty of time to sort that out, don't you think?
It runs at 30FPS but the slowdowns are reported to have "made the game a literal slideshow" thats not good for a fast paced game.
The article said "significant slowdown".
<Vader also has his iconic "Emperor Throw" where he hefts his enemy over his head and tosses them to the ground.> Nuff said... DV > Yoda anyday
And tester, I SAID the game may still need some work. What part of *still needs work* do you not understand?
That looks cool. Frame rate issues...... I thought the Playstation 3 could do the Kessel run in less than 1 1/2 parsecs. Given that a parsec is a unit of measurement i`m sure it doesn't matter.
Yeah, I did alot of contracting work on the original Death Star (we were gonna shape it like a star at first instead of the small moon design we ended up going with.) To set out the trench to the reactor duct I used my 5 Parsec (or about 16 Lightyears) tape measure. That tool came in mighty handy on that job.
"we're a little worried that the PS3 version suffers from significant slowdown as opposed to the extremely smooth 360 build" nothing new here, just another multi-plat game running better than the ps3 version.
Cute, but no.
Oh really? I didn't know the game went gold yet. Thx for letting me know. /sarcasm. Typical xbot.
But screw the framerate, Darth Vadar looks boring compared to Yoda. Vadar looks like a watered down Mitsurugi with a learning disability.
Since Namco has always been so great with playstation hardware. I hope this doesn't bleed over into Tekken 6's development, though.
Yeah, if Tekken 6 and Soul Calibur IV have chugging issues, I'm gonna be really pissed off.
Namco has done an excellent job in securing maximum sales for the PLAYSTATION®3 platform by adding Darth Vader to the already impressive roster of Soul Calibur 4. With him added to the game, Soul Calibur fans will undoubtedly recognize the PLAYSTATION®3 version as the game to get as it annihilates the Xbox 360 version in worldwide sales. Slowdown will not be an issue as IGN felt the need to add that bit of false information. With the game still a few months away, it's certain that the version they played was a demo version that is 7-8 months old. The final copy of Soul Calibur will clearly be better on PLAYSTATION®3. Gamers look to the dark side as Darth Vader is a far more attractive character to use in a sword fighting game. Microslaves are left for seconds as they use a character that looks like the manure in Dark Sniper's toilet. $niper
"As for Darth Vader's actual character model, we were pleased for the most part. Yoda looks to have way more facial detail than Vader" maybe that's because VADER USE A MASK! geez... it's me or the previewer is kinda biased, there's a lot of people saying that there is no difference even in frame rate between both versions.
Your 100% right, usually if you have a mask on, you won't see FACIAL DETAIL. Idiot previewer.
I think they're just trying to balance the versions. The common theme is that PS3 having vader is a plus. So now they can make an issue about the PS3's framerate and bla bla even if every other site said both played the same. :roll:
