Soul Calibur 4 chooses once again to challenge our pronunciation skills.

Scheherazade?!?!
the new character in the latest upcoming installment of Soul Calibur 4 is a woman. an aptly named women at that:
"[i] [Scheherazade is] a legendary Persian queen and the storyteller of One Thousand and One Nights.

The frame tale goes that every day Shahryar (Persian: شهريار or "king") would marry a new virgin, and every day he would send yesterday's wife to be beheaded. This was done in anger, having found out that his first wife was betraying him. He had killed three thousand such women by the time he was introduced to Scheherazade, the vizier's daughter."
apparently the original Scheherazade was a Persian queen, which is pretty bad ass in my opinion. (no not all Persians are black... in fact very few are, just ignore 300 for now ok?)
In my personal opinion she looks like she could possibly have a similar fighting style to that of Raphael's in the previous SC. her stance looks a bit like his. Hopefully this new character does not harness the amazing "cheap shot" that Raphael is famous for (for those of you who didn't play as raphael in the 2nd soul calibur, he basically has one of the cheapest moves in the game.)
Although I am totally stoked for that new Soul Calibur game, having skipped the 3rd one for no reason other than i was playing something else at the time and having the only memory i have of SC is SC2 and the many fond times in a room full of smoke and game cube controllers, i wish they would have been more creative with the design... it seems like we have enough chicks in knight uniforms with swords in this game (namely sophitia and that other really annoying chick). Although i am reeaaaalllly exited to play the 360 version... WHY?

fucking YODA! yesssss once again Namco comes out on top. it seems that the PS3 has been the dark side all along with the power of vader on their side. Yet, none surpass Yoda.
