So back when I had my original xbox, we enjoyed a bit of Soul Caliber 2 now and again. I saw the new version pop up on the PS4 and WTF with the dated horrible graphics? I'd think a game that has to render a static arena and two characters would be stunning, but it looks awful.

No it's actually awesome looking. For some reason even HD videos don't do it any justice. I was as disappointed as you are since this is one of my favourite franchises ever, but then I tried the demo and made peace with the world.

First, video streaming through the PSN store sucks horribly with the video often upscaled and the audio is almost always way too loud for some fucking reason. So it's better to switch to YouTube (with the resolution properly set) and watch those things on there.

As for the graphics I get what you are saying. If you are used to something like Mass Effect or Dragon Age with their ridiculously over-budgeted and over-the-top material shaders the textures in Soulcalibur VI look very flat in comparison. They are also not helped by the way things are lit, which often flattens the textures even more. Also Namco Bandai fighting games in general are not known for their graphics prowess. If you look at Tekken 7, for example, it also has that dated graphics look (though it's a different dev team).

Exactly, it is not Assassin's Creed but it looks way better when you play it than any video I have seen.

Seriously, they did a fantastic job, IMO: no matter how popular it is, it's still a mainly text-driven management sim, but they managed to touch upon the most satisfying aspects of the game, while generating hype in the process.

(And I really like the "Their glory is your story" slogan)

How viable is the base game?  Like, are you going to be playing in a virtual wasteland with nobody to group with due to lack of expansions?

I'm going to guess that there will be plenty of activity with the giveaway. 

Can't speak to the quality of said activity, nor its longevity.

The discussion seems to imply itís single player only. I think about that game a lot though. Warframe feels like it has a Hellgate ancestor somewhere in the family, though it has never grabbed me the many times Iíve tried.

I really like that it is "AN action game you have been waiting for". That's refreshingly modest. Not THE action game, but you know, one among some number of them.
