These Tales inspired cosplays will soothe your soul photo
These Tales inspired cosplays will soothe your soul
by Wesley Ruscher

It only took two years for the thirteenth flagship title in the Tales series to reach western shores, but now that Tales of Xillia has finally arrived what better way to celebrate than with a collection of some fantastic cosplay traversing the series' lineage. 

From the PlayStation classic Tales of Destiny, to the soon to be remastered Tales of Symphonia, all the way to the present with Tales of Xillia; there definitely is no shortage of breathtaking cosplays to admire. To narrow it down we've limited this week's entries to a few characters from the most prominent games in the series. Even this was near impossible.

So let us know below which one is your favorite. And as always, if you have any spectacular cosplays you'd like to show off here, send them in to tips@destructoid.com.

Until next time!

Preview: Making zombie butts in Street Fighter X Tekken
by Wesley Ruscher

If there's one thing next month's Street Fighter X Tekken is trying to be, it's accessible. Besides combining one of the deepest fighting game casts -- since Capcom dabbled with the SNK crew -- the dream fighter is throwing in 4-player battle royals, a robust online package and enough customization options to satisfy even the finickiest of fans.

Amid the game's various customization options lies the Character Color Edit mode, which you can check out in our video preview above. While the mode is nowhere near as controversial (for now) as the Gem system or as in-depth as, say, SoulCalibur V's seemingly never ending Create-A-Soul mode, it does offer up quite a few hilarious outcomes with its basic coloring choices.

So sit back and enjoy our video breakdown of Street Fighter X Tekken's color editor, or at the very least to catch a glimpse of some pasty white Cammy buttocks.
