Soulcalibur V Gallery #2: In-Game Character Art & Scenery/Setting: There are some shots of the characters from scenes inside the game, as well as a few of the stages that will be available as fighting platforms. In my opinion the  Soulcalibur series has by far the most beautiful and detailed characters and backgrounds, particularly for a PvP fighting game, and I have way too much fun changing the outfits and designing custom characters. #gallery-2 { margin: auto; } #gallery-2 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 25%; } #gallery-2 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-2 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /*...
