The Bird Is A Jesus Metaphor (Probably)

Would you believe me if I said this picture is the least bizarre thing about Soulcalibur IV?

Between the inclusion of Darth "Anakin "James "This is CNN" Earl Jones" Skywalker" Vader and Yoda to the fact that they spell the title -- which is obviously two words -- as a single, bizarre compound noun/verb-jective thing, this game is either the greatest example of wacky Japanese culture infused with hyper-violent pugilism since No More Heroes, or Marcel Duchamp has risen from the dead to create videogames.

(Side note: If any developers release a game consisting entirely of a found urinal, I guarantee an automatic "10" in every publication willing to pay me.)

(Side note addendum: Review coming shortly. Of Soulcalibur IV, not the toilet thing.)
