VERSUS SO-PHA-TI-YA-FIGHT!... SoulCalibur is a weird series in that it's well established and beloved by the fighting game community and yet it doesn't have the same widespread recognition as Street Fighter, Tekken, Mortal Kombat, and even Dead or Alive, you know what I mean? I mean this at least from my experience. I never see anyone talk about going to play SoulCalibur. The fact that none of the characters are part of pop culture like those other series is also probably part of the reason. Always loved the weapons based mechanic. One of the first of it's kind. It's always been my favorite series next to Street Fighter ever since my Dad brought home a PlayStation with Soul Blade in '97
MAN this was like one of my favorite fighting games growing up. It was so different from the rest, featuring a cast of playable fighters based on fairy tales, horror icons, and creatures of the night. Ever wanted to pit Little Red Riding Hood with a dark, alter ego against Frankenstein's monster? How about the king of vampires against the ancient mummy king? Werewolf and a Merman? I loved all that shit. I especially love the background art of the stages. Such detail and beautifully drawn. The HD re-release is able to highlight this especially. That stage with the evil fetus in the background is fucking nuts! The DarkStalkers series are some the most creative fighting games I've ever played. I've been waiting 20 years for #DarkStalkers4. Make it happen, #Capcom!
Man I'm sittin hear dripping tears to this shit like a baby! Oh man this brings back memories. I was like 4 years old jammin to this with my blocks! I'm not one to idolize but damn I loved this man. One of the only celebrities I was genuinely sad to see go. All he was trying to do was spread awareness and help people and he was taken out for it. Fuckin roaches! Modern Day Messiah ✊🏾 #2Pac 😥
