    My copy turned up today. Looks very nice, but I'm so out of practise with SoulCal. The last one I played for any decent amount of time was probably II.

    I played an hour or so of the main story mode, which is basically a VN. I think I'll bash through that and then do the whole create a soul thing and get really stuck into the other mode.

    Lovely art in this game though. Makes me a bit sad that they didn't release a version of the collector's edition with just the art book.

    I know the loads times are about twice as fast on the X to the original.

    Says it's X enhanced on the ms site but can't find how anywhere really.

    Cervantes is in it though so you get to teleport kill everyone

    @FuzzyDucky My copy says 'Xbox One X Enhanced' on the case, so I imagine it probably has support for both. I couldn't tell you what shape that support takes though, as I'm stuck on a pikey One S at the minute.

    Definitely close to biting on this on the X. I'm not a massive fighting fan any more but I loved soul calibur 2 and this sounds like the proper sequel to it. Seems like there's plenty of modes as well.

    @FuzzyDucky Bear in mind the base Xbox One version is going to be the weakest one, and it still looks really good, so I imagine it'll look bloody lovely on the upgraded machines (not machine-specific, but character faces can look a bit iffy though; bear witness to Sieg's goofy face in the intro cinematic :) ).

    Really, the only thing I noticed is that the backgrounds can look a bit blurry, but it feels more like an overly-strong DoF effect to me.

    I went to a SCVI launch event at Meltdown Bar last night. Good fun. I felt like I had the edge on most people playing... But...

    They ran a single elimination tournament. One loss and you're out. Who did I draw against for my first match? Hyrul. Yes, the same Hyrul who was Europe's best all throughout SC2-SC5. I lost, but it wasn't free, and was good chatting to him after.

    By the time I got home, I was able to put 15 minutes into training mode... And that's it. Looking forwards to getting back tonight!

    Sounds cool. Had to Google meltdown bar as id never heard of it. Looks great. As for this game I'm quite keen to play it. It pre installed last night on the X so will hopefully get a bash later.

    I didn't stay till the end, but also not surprised SilentJoel took it. He was clean sweeping ALL of his matches.

    What I've played has been pretty good, but good God I am mashing buttons like a motherfucker. It is almost disconcertingly fast paced. Seems like there's a lot in there, Geralt is pretty cool.

    Too scared to venture online.

    I don't suppose they recorded it? Wouldn't mind seeing you play.

    @neems wasn't streamed. Plus the TO was a bit haphazard as well, so the event was running later than expected.

    What are you playing it on? Console wise. I have a lot to learn and find running into peoples weapons with my face is the best way.

    Hahaha I'd be the same mate. I want to rinse the single player content and then try and get half decent with a couple first. Really looking forward to trying this later.

    @Rivuzu

    I'm on PC, seemed logical as I'm not overly fussed about online play in general (£36 from cdkeys).

    Anybody else on pc feel free to hit me up on Steam if they're looking for a punching bag (should just be neems, my icon is a green Celtic badge).

    I might rejig the controls, holding A to block is just weird.

    I'm already prepared to double dip (got on PS4, but I was talking to Hyrul about online casuals and he's a PC player so I need to chase him down for salty runbacks) so I'll have to come find you too!

    So hyped. This afternoon at work will drag but I'll leave earlier than usual.

    I just spent the last hour or so in character creation, really agonising over it. It doesn't help that I have no colour sense whatsoever.
