SCV cut everyone's moveset by nearly 50%. Fixing the problem you addressed was actually one of Project Soul's priorities with this game. Sadly, people didn't like it because the single player sucked, so they seek random excuses to sound like they know what they're talking about.

Also, that's not what balancing means in a fighting game.

@Kaze_Memaryu Excuse me? I'm a competitive Soul Calibur player and I can assure you 5 is by far the best game in the series. "Spamfest"? I'm not sure what you mean by that. 3 was unbalanced, 4 was pretty much 2 with fatalities, and 5 is an absolute technical masterpiece. The only bad thing about it was the story mode (not because the story was bad but because it was poorly executed and Namco cut the budget halfway through).

If they ported SCV it'd be the the best fighting game on a Nintendo platform since CvS2 for the Gamecube. Add Link and 3's single player to that and it'd sell like hotcakes.



Norik commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

I'm 18 years old, male, and live in a big city, and yet this game doesn't appeal to me at all. It's all just too realistic and bland. No mechanics to master, no real incentive to do what you do... It just doesn't stimulate my imagination in any way.

Nothing quite like the gallons of fanboy tears when the game doesn't get perfect scores though... can't wait for Yahtzee's review.

The Wii U is just fine as it is. They just need to do a better job at the marketing; the majority of consumers either don't know what it is or STILL think it's an add on for the Wii. A YEAR AFTER RELEASE.
