My Wish: Soul Calibur IV on PS3
GameDaily has an interview with Daisuke Uchiyama, the Chief Producer at Bandai Namco. Actually, to be totally inerringly accurate, the article is a discussion about the interview. In it, Mr. Uchiyama confirms that the next installment of Soul Calibur is currently in production.
I never got Soul Calibur III for my PS2, but my friends have it for both the GameCube and the Xbox. So I’ve played my fair share. It actually took me a while to get into the game, having DOA2 on my PS2. But it’s a pretty fun game.
What’s your biggest wish for Soul Calibur IV? I mean, besides the wish that it would be released on the PS3, which we don’t know yet. I want to see more realistic hits. When swords clash, they shouldn’t kinda pass through each other. Hitting someone in the head should look like you hit them in the head.
And what do you guys think about the “uncanny valley” problem, whereby if you make a CG character look realistic, but not quite realistic enough, it looks creapy. Do you think that fighting game character can look better without looking creapy? Personally, I think so. I play Call of Duty 2 a lot, and those characters look great!
