Yeah, heard about this this morning. There are people in my office who take Soul Calibur quite seriously (IV in their case) and praise it to all Hell and back. I think it's fun for what it is for a few weeks with friends and that's kind of it.
I bought all of them except for 3 (played, just borrowed), but I will likely play this too. Cool.
PS. Also laughed (and stared a bit) at how they line-up all the female characters and list their chest sizes.
