Woah.. Kos Mos was in a Soul Calibur title? I never even knew she made any cameos outside of the xenogears series.

Qwerty914597d ago

You wouldn't expect it hey. lol

LinkageAX4597d ago

Is Xenogears a part of the Xenosaga story? I always thought they were separate series'.

koga884597d ago

Woops, meant to say Xenosaga. Yeah they are entirely separate.

Qwerty914596d ago

Soul calibur is better than tekken

Qwerty914596d ago (Edited 4596d ago )

Soul Calibur Vs Tekken...I honestly don't know which I'd rather. I like Soul's fighting system more but Tekken has way better characters.

But then again, I think Tekken has more strategy to it, it's a bit easy to end up button mashing in Calibur sometimes, but that's half the fun I guess. lol

Soulcalibur 5 will be delisted next week on PS3 and Xbox 360

Soulcalibur official Twitter: "Valiant Warriors - Soul Calibur V is taking its final curtain call on the stage of history and will be sunset on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on June 19, 2023. The base game and all associated DLC will no longer be available for purchase. Thank you for your continued support."

This is why guest characters shouldn't be on the base roster. Im sure Ezio and the whole Assassin's Creed stuff license expired and that is why it is being removed. The same thing is probably going to happen to Soul Calibur 6 in 10 years.

I doubt a lot of people still played the worst SC game over 10 years after its release on dead consoles.

blackblades396d ago

Right whoever wanted the game would've had it by now. Also physical is usually the better option

gold_drake396d ago


alot of games have been delisted recently.

Nyxus396d ago

Meanwhile several big games are going digital only. Good omen for the future...

MadLad396d ago

I've been mainly gaming on PC for 12 years now. I don't think there was ever a game that was actually taken away from me.
Even the multiplayer-focused games, with their servers typically being taken down, you can still host your own.

Not sure why People are so against digital. You still need online infrastructure just to update your games or to patch them. You're stuck to online/digital one way or another.
