I have played the first one on Dreamcast, and I found it very good, the characters all control differently but you can always manage toget a good fight with any of them after a few minutes of training. My fave character is without a shadow of a doubt Mitsurugi, he look so cool, so i'll definately check SC2 (for gamecube), and I look foward to playing with Link :D

Had mine reserved & paid off at my local Funcoland (now Gamestop) a long time ago. My favorite char has been Mitsurugi ever since Soul Edge in the arcade. I am surprised and a little ticked that some old favs aren't coming back...Seung Mina, Hwang, and Rock...though Astaroth is good enough to replace Rock...and they've got that new guy (forget his name) instead of Hwang, and Kilik is kinda like Mina, but not quite. I will also be very interested to see how Talim; uses the bladed tonfas; will fare...she supposedly can hook an opponent's weapon, but I have been unable to pull that off on the arcade...we will see...


oh, and Spawn owns Link!! XBOX RULES!!! :p




p.s. Link will undoubtedly be an awesome character to use, I have nothing against Link as a character, it's just that Spawn is soooo much cooler IMO...I truly feel sorry for the PS2 people who only get Heihachi (weaponless char in a weapon-based fighter...hmmm...not good)

p.p.s. Rouge15, if you haven't already, check out the top 10 plays, literally half of them are Spawn kicking ass :D

I might be getting it.

But what should I get it for? Gamecube or Xbox? :indif:

Get it for GameCube, because Link is cool and Spawn is stupid. That's how I decided.

If you have xbox live, get the xbox version, otherwise i don't care what you do. :)

I only found the games of july-winter or something, i looked all over the disk for the top 10 plays, but can't find them! (i did see one clip of spawn kicking ass tho)

The PS2 charector looks really stupid, too. Spawn looks the coolest, But Link is probably the best, since he has many long range weapons. So like 15 said, if you don't have XBox live, get the GCN version. ;)

I didn't know it was coming out on Xbox as well! ooo!! I've never played it, but it looks fun as hell. I should try and get it...

When *does* it come out?

Count me in! I can't wait for it!
I've got a Xbox and GCN. Hard choice which, but since I'm a Zelda zealot I believe I'll get the GCN version.
Yes, the PS2 version sucks!

Yes, I will get this game for Gamecube, just for Link, despite the fact that the Gamecube's tiny-ass controller will give me trouble.

I played it at the arcades once and I got my ass kicked (some ppl spend too much time in there) so that settled the question.

Actually, I dont really like the style of fighting, I prefer the Capcom vs Snk 2 style (where I am unbeatable :D )

Anyone have the game yet? I got it for GCN. It is AWESOME!

My main charectors I use is Link (I am the best with him) Maxi (Hes pretty easy to use) and Astaroth (Hard to use, but powerful)

Its quite fun. Arcade mode is fun, as well as weapon master. Tons of unlockable stuff too. ;)

Who got the XBox verison? Is it fun on XBox live?

topshot
09-29-2003, 05:50 AM
Astaroth's Rock, Nightmare's Galley Oar, Raphael's cane, Link's bug catching net, Kilik's Bamboo shaft, Taki's Tobacco Pipes, and Yoshi's Sheperd's Crook. Funny, yet effective weapons, if you know what I mean. Kicked everyone's *** with those guys!

They seriously could've came out with a PC version and had someone like Indiana Jones or Kyle Katarn as a special guest character. But then again, that would be up to LucasArts' decision. ;)

I've got the xbox version, and yes, it kicks ass. So far my favourite character to play with is Nightmare, and Spawn is awesome. SC2 is not xbox live enabled btw!

Topshot, how do you get all those weapons? :eek:

I tried getting Link's net, but I can't beat oe of the levels on Chapter 4, the one where you start with 30 seconds to beat like 5 guys. Taki keeps blockign my attacks, and I always run out of time :(

You have to be a certain Edge Master level. Somewhere around Lvl. 76. Then, after attaining the highest ranks, go to Chapter 4 and select the mission where you have to beat all of the enemies within the time limit. Complete it successfully, and you should be able to unlock Subchapter 2. It's the only way to get Link's net and all the other weapons.


If you're still having trouble, do what I do: Use your best fighter, buy his/her legendary sword, train with it, learn his/her best and most effective moves, then go kick some major you-know-what!!!!!!!!

As for more information, check out the SC 2 forums, where all information is held. (http://www.soulcalibur.com/forums/index.php)

Hint: You have to be really good in order to beat Taki. My plan of attack would be playing the "Loser's Gambit" strategy and stand near the edge, let her make her charge, get outta the way, and spin kick her to the deep bottomless abyss below.

If that doesn't work,

Her 'assets' are a lot smaller in the game than in the character art. Bet that peed you off. :p

I did this wallpaper of her the other day...

Nice leXX! :)

Yeh, but do they go bouncy bouncy in the art? :p

Topshot, thanks I'm looking at the site now... but.....

Talim is 15?!?! :|

Anyways, my best charector is Link, but I can get a lot father, and faster with Nightmare, but I can't beat Talim with him, because shes attacks me before I can get to the edge :(

Thanks anyways ;)

topshot
10-01-2003, 07:38 PM
Nightmare relies on heavy swords, making him strong and a little slow at certain points. Talim focuses on the light-weight material, making her quick and agile. Link can take 'em both on because he's got good offensive (he's a triple-threat in elvish form! :cool: But, you already know that......;) ) and defensive moves (Rolling and backflip attacks can sure save your life in a battle! :p), but may face the wrath of vertical attacks when he rolls.

But aside from that, Mitsurugi is one of my best guys by far (Aside from Link, Yoshi, Raphael, and Kilik), since he has 3 or 4 different combat stances.


Need any more tips, my good friend? :D

I need to gain 7 more levels though.... *goes to find some challengers* :)

And that is where I make my point that they should make WMM online-compatible for all consoles, including a version for the PC! :cool: If not then, we'll just have to mod the heck out of Jedi Academy! :p

Thanks to your tips, I beat the level :)

Hey, when you've been playing the game over and over like myself, you know everything there is to the game. ;)

Now if only I had an XBox and a PS2, now there's the REAL challenge! :p *Waits to hear how tough Spawn and Heihachi are.*

Kain
10-02-2003, 03:19 AM
I...'dislike'...fighting games. If they ever make a game with Kain or Raziel in it though...ooooooooo...

I heard Heichi(or whatever) sucks. He's power, but really short range(for obvious reasons).

Y'know, if Talim and Taki were really one person with all the right assets of both fighters, I'd be in shock, not to mention it would be really weird! :D

If there's one thing I love about Talim: the sense of humor you get when you look at the description when you're selecting the "Weight" as your weapon.

Talim's ass, Taki's bouncies, and Links Great Fairy Sword- 3 go in, only one comes out alive. And that one is (duh duh duh dum!): Cassandra's silly 3rd costume! :p


Oh, and I officially declare myself a Kilik, Link, Mitsurugi, YunSung, Taki, Necrid, Cassandra, Sophitia, and Sueng Mina fan.

THEY ARE NEVER THE SAME PEOPLE!!!!!

There, hope I ruined your gaming fun if you ever play Zelda. :p

Actually, speaking of Zelda, I've only played a little bit of OoT, more of OoA (Oracle of Ages), a few bites of the original, and well, more of Link's Awakening.


I'm not really into Zelda all that much, but I do know this: If the Gerudo tribe is composed of mostly women, and Ganon says he's from that tribe, then that leads up to only one conclusion: he's sure one ugly woman! LOL :p
