Soul Caliber 2 – An underrated beauty

I just want to start this blog by saying that I am not a massive player of fighting games. The only ones I have ever owned include:

  • Street Fighter 2 (Mega Drive & Wii)jfghfc
  • Street Fighter 4 (PS3)
  • Soul Caliber 2 (Gamecube)

Now everyone knows that Street Fighter 2 is and always will be the best fighting game ever made and I am not disputing that at all. However one fighting game I think that was in the shadow of the more popular franchises like Street Fighter and Tekken was Soul Caliber 2 and this game was probably the fighting game I have spent the most time on in my entire life. Released on the PS2, Gamecube and Xbox I didn’t realise what a good game it was until I was about 1 week into playing it. And truth be told the only reason I bought it was due to my passion for Legend of Zelda and Link who was the bonus character for the Gamecube version.


Resident Evil 4 Run [Village]

Never get tired of playing RE4, just started another round, trying to power up the Handcannon and save up for the Chicago Typewriter (which i originally thought was a different type of typewriter). Just got through ‘The Big Cheese’, a good boss with a bit of a difference, im just surprised he doesn’t choke Leon to death earlier in the game haha. Oh well…HIS LOSS!

Bloody Ashley becomes a pain in the arse even if the guys at Capcom have made her easy on the eyes (especially with the alternate ‘Pop’ outfit. A little bit of my incendiary grenade hit her whilst entering the main room of the castle and all of sudden, death…
What the hell!? Put it under the tap and get on with it woman, make Leon’s life easier.

Another thing I noticed was the amount of Handcannon ammo I get over other ammo, is making me wanna waste its ammo on purpose…sometimes on Ashley and a lot of the time on the Shopkeeper. Don’t say you guys haven’t done it before!
