SoulCalibur producer discusses 'pay-to-win' model in Lost Swords

The term "pay-to-win" is oft thrown around by critics of free-to-play games, but you rarely if ever hear developers turn the phrase when discussing their own games.  Apparently Namco producer Masaaki Hoshino has no such ...

Here's a REAL SoulCalibur Unbreakable Soul trailer

I was and still am in love with the entire day of April 23, 2014. That was the day that lots of my peers ran a fake SoulCalibur: Unbreakable Soul Trailer as a real, legit Namco Bandai release. When I saw it I ran to make a c...

The best and worst games of the week - Game of the Month photo
The best and worst games of the week - Game of the Month
by Wesley Ruscher

Thank goodness November is finally over. It was a hectic month -- that will go down in gaming history as one of the greatest ever -- thanks, in no part, to the launch of two brand spanking new consoles from both Sony and Microsoft. 

There was also the usual flood of major releases primed for the holiday madness like Tearaway, Forza Motorsport 5, Killzone: Shadow Fall, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Call of Duty: Ghosts.

But more importantly there was one title that grabbed the attention of the Destructoid staff more than any other game this month and perhaps is just the kick a certain Nintendo console needs to sell like hotcakes this winter season.

Review: Soulcalibur II HD Online photo
Review: Soulcalibur II HD Online
by Wesley Ruscher

Transcending more than just history, Soulcalibur II was the envy of every arcade-to-home conversion back in 2003. A feature-rich fighter, Namco’s weapon-based brawler exemplified perfection with deep mechanics, memorable characters, stunning visuals, and robust modes. 

Additionally, its console iterations included console specific guest characters: The Legend of Zelda’s Link on GameCube; comic book icon Spawn on Xbox; and from Namco’s other 3D fighter Tekken, Heihachi Mishima on the PS2. It was unprecedented at the time, so much so that it caused quite a commotion amongst fanboys as they clamored which system had it best.

But how do you improve a game that already borders on perfection? Is it even humanly possible? Can the jump to HD and the inclusion of online instill the same passion in fans that fueled Soulcalibur II all those years ago? To me, these are the questions Namco and the team at Project Soul were faced with when they announced Soulcalibur II HD Online for XBLA and PSN earlier this year -- an update to a game that set the gold standard for the series.

Well, the short answer…a half-hearted “kind of.”
