    I was actually surprised, but this just came out. I immediately went and bought it for 450 DKK.

    I have played over 4 hours of Libra of Soul, the campaign with a created character. I made a evil black skeleton named Scully to celebrate Halloween.

    This Libra of Soul mode is long and a little bit too easy. It's fun to destroy everything with Scully, but there is a little too much loading and saving and not enough challenging fights. I'm enjoying it, but it could be better.

    completed the game with Yoshimitsu on Normal difficulty (Arcade Mode). A very raw arcade mode without any cutscenes or permanent progression.

    Got the No Sweeter Taste than Victory trophy. - I won the prerequisite 5 matches to get the trophy, ending with a climactic battle with the current President of the United States. Just perfect.

    Got the An Unquenchable Thirst for Battle trophy. - I played 35 casual matches against First-Throne, who fought well and was patient with me only playing an aggressive black skeleton with a giant sword. I got the 'The Only Way is Up' trophy for winning 5 casual matches, the 'A Hero is Born' trophy for fighting 10 matches with a created character, and the 'An Unquenchable Thirst for Battle' trophy for fighting 50 battles online.

    Very important note: there are two trophies for completing the main story of Libra of Soul, one for being evil, and one for being good. I'll be damned if I'm going to play through that thing twice, so save-scumming is needed. I'll follow the advice by Ecklipse on playstationtrophies.org:
    Upload your save to the cloud or backup to a USB drive before finishing the mission 'Resolution'. If your scales are tipped towards evil, complete Astral Fissure missions and choose the good option. Repeat until your scales are tipped towards good. Complete 'Resolution' and this trophy will pop. Download your backup save and complete 'Resolution' with the scales tipped in the opposite direction to save you from having to play through the entire game again.

    completed the game (STORY: Soul Chronicle). I spent 4.5 hours skipping every part of the story, and mashing my way through all the ridiculously easy fights, losing one match during the whole story. Even though there are plenty of fun enemies, the low difficulty and bland style of storytelling makes this completely uninteresting.
