    I don't use the words, "atrocious," "nut-crushingly painful," or "daffodildo" very often, so believe me when I say that Soulcalibur V was an atrocious, nut-crushingly painful experience, as unsatisfying as a freshly plucked daffodildo. (Gahars' note: Or so a friend has told me, anyway...)

    But don't worry, Soulcalibur fans! This particular ride isn't over just yet...

    Remember when this series had soul? A respectable caliber? Because I do, damn it!

    "Lost Swords" (or "Tossed Swords" if you're feeling particularly uncharitable) will be be released "soon" in Japan, and will have a release in the West sometime this winter. Oh, and it's a PS3 exclusive for now, so... thanks, Namco?

    Here's a trailer for the game if you're still interested. If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go cry in the corner while listening to Bruce Springstein's "Glory Days" on an endless loop.

    Yeah no thanks.

    The F2P model better not ruin singleplayer games too.

    I'll pass, just the term F2P turns me off.

    Naturally it depends upon whether they do F2P right but consider me curious (I really really want a single player game with a proper fighting engine).

    I'd try it, if I had the PS3 to do it. :lol:

    Really depends on the F2P structure, not all of them are bad. I'd hope it'd just be costumes and customizations but it looks like it'll be like weapons or weapon-related things and possibly characters so that really hurts it.
