Well I guess we can cross of any of MVC characters from the guest list. Maybe Cloud or Sephiroth?

- Bring back moves from soul calibur 2 - Balance it out some. - Get rid of just input moves and them them easier to perform, as well as with combo throws. - Bring back survival mode, time attack, arcade mode. story mode, and come up with some other modes which are innovative and throw in a better tag team mode where you can click the right stick or left stick button to switch out characters, instead of wasting a shoulder button for the job. - Get rid of Kilik's bow staff and give him a 3 section staff. (It would work. I see him doing that.) - Bring in new characters who use new types of weapons. (where are the kusari gama, ball and chain, kama, double sided sword, hook swords, etc.) - Bring back custom characters with a deeper customization, facial features, eye color lip color, bust size, muscle mass, height, weight, clothing color of clothing on a wide spectrum palette, hair length, hair style, etc. - Weapon crafting which is every bit as deep as the character customization should be. - WORK HARDER AT MAKING US ALL WANT TO KEEP PLAYING THE GAME WITHOUT BEING SO FRUSTRATED THAT WE WANT TO SMASH OUR SYSTEM!!!!!!!

I would love it if the guest character is someone like Ibuki or Rolento. I wouldn't be surprised if if it is a Street Fighter character considering SFXT. Either that, or Hayato from Star Gladiator! That would be awesome!

@phoenixreborn89 : Yes, he is but that random shout of "DAMMIT!" seems less than serious and from what I can gather, Patty is as serious of a character as Siegfried(in that he's completely serious about absolutely everything; not that he should be taken seriously). @ gorgeelow : It's called a typo. That, or the person writing it was thinking more guns than names loosely based on Arthurian lore. @ covenan : Cervantes is her biological father, he's pseudo-immortal due to Soul Edge, so is she. Really though, it's just that Bamco believes all women over 20 are disgusting. @ Darkkend : Natsu is Taki's apprentice. Much like Darth Vader's apprentice, she was created by a writer pulling a (bad)plot thread from thin air.

Just once I'd like to see one of these interviews end like this: "So can you tell us when we'll be playing Soulcalibur V?" "Well, I can't say anything yet, but it actually comes out...TOMORROW!"

Soul Caliber is my type of franchise. All for the fans, that's whats up! Wait was that a brunette taki or her daughter or something? I heard she wasn't going to be in this game. I hope they keep talim too.

With the recent collaboration with Capcom I wouldn't be surprised if the guest character is from the Capcom universe

I need the online mode to good. Not laggy like Tekken. I need to be solid like SF4 and VF5. I also need and online mode that rewards skill, and not grinding, item looting, puzzle, etc... I really hated the Tower Mode not because it was hard, but because of the pace of the progression. Trying to figure out which character to use, which item to wear, which tactic to exploit, etc... I lost interest 60% of the way through. ONE MORE THING, Dear Namco, Please, stop inflating Ivy's bosom. Thank you

"We want our fans to have very high expectations for SC5." That's what I like to hear.

Looks amazing like always. I just hope they keep Kilik, he is the best character.

the only thing i still dont get, is just why ivy still look young, she supposed to be as old as a granny, since the young patroclous( sophitia's baby) already became an adult.., as absurd as it is.but i prefer playing as ivy if she showed as an old fighter but with enhanced weapon & armor, as cervantes was

Soul Caliber is a common typo by people with bad english, can't believe GameSpot did it too tho.

Looks awesome! I do have high expectations for this game. Project Soul is amazing. I love how Tago is nodding his head even though he does not understand the question yet :P

The game looks great. As much as I love 2-d fighting of MK and SSFIV, I still prefer 3-d fighting games like Tekken and Soul Calibur. I hope they improve the single player gameplay with nice storyline and couple tough bosses.

@WandrianWvlf I believe that Yuri is voicing Sophitia's son, Patroclus.

Why do they get this Maxwell guy to cover such big stuff? I don't mean to be rude, but he's just so. . . boring. And dat hair.

What was that shout at the end? The voice was familiar. Yuri Lowenthal, I think, but what character?

I've been a longtime Namco fan, but I have to admit that as of late, I've lost a little bit of the old passion for Tekken. It's still technically a phenomenal fighter, but I don't know...it just doesn't seem to sparkle like it once did. Soul Calibur V looks to be the exact opposite. It seems like they're recreating the elements that made it so appealing in the first place, but the game looks even more polished than it has been in the past. I'll be keeping an eye on this one.
