Yeah, I just wish he was a bit more different from Astaroth so that I wouldn't use the Astaroth moves for him and wonder why they don't work.

I thought they did pretty well distinguishing the two in III. Especially making Rock alot faster, he had the balance I was looking for, similar to other heavy hitters like Siegfried did. Probably why I use them alot.

I probably would've done alright if I had used him more than Astaroth, but I don't, so that probably does that.

Astaroth is one of my favorites because of his power and his moves. Roll down->back + A makes me so happy. Then I try it with Rock and remember that I can't grab them that way with Rock. Ah well - he was here first.

I used to use Astaroth all the time in II, and went into III the same way until I discovered my style favors Rock so much more.

As long as they dont' chande Sigfried too much, I'll be fine.
I'd like to see Necrid back, but that isn't going to happen...

Well, they usually don't change the characters very much unless there is a decent reason (such as the Siegfried/Nightmare split) so I don't think we have anything to worry about there. I don't want Necrid back myself, he just seemed broken compared to everyone else.

Actually, what I'm most interested is how the plot crosses over from III to IV. There are endings for each character, and very few of them add up, since everyone either obtains or destroys Soul Edge at the end of their Tales of Souls mode.

Exactly like every other fighting game. You never know which endings really happen until the next game. I mean, some of them could theoretically happen without fighting Abyss, such as Kilik and Xianghua's endings. In III it was revealed that most of the characters didn't do anything of note during II, so we never know.

Precisely why my curiousity is so high - I want to know what really happened. Makes everything seem to fit together, you know.

Just realized something: With Yun-Seong as a confirmed playable character in Soul Calibur Legends, it's practically a given that he'll be in SCIV. While I enjoy using his fighting style, I hate him as a person, so this probability gives me mixed fealings.

Astaroth is also a character, which likely also puts him in SCIV (yay!).

I've liked his moves and moveset, but I hate his attitude.

1. The new character looks cool.
2. Sophitia seems to have somewhat of a more troubled past now.
3. RAPHAEL AND ASTAROTH! YEAH!

This game is going to be awesome... This is the reason I want an X-Box 360. There might be more reasons, but this is the main one.

Update concerning the new female knight:

QUOTE
Hilde, aka Hildegard Von Krone. This is the female armored knight character that some people thought was a custom character. According to these scans, she is the daughter of the king of Wolfkrone, a fictional European kingdom. Her full name is derived from Old German words hild and gard, meaning war and protection, respectively.
