This night me and my girlfriend played Soulcalibur until 4 in the morning. We were both trapped into playing just one more game - and then just one more again and again. Struggling against the computer controlled fighters a story was presented to us. However, we did not care and went on without reading. God's words spoiled on Ballelars (danish saying). This was certainly not of narrative pleasure but of ludic pleasure. A pleasure which is by now turning into art. It is of no coincidence Soulcalibur is a japanese product made by Namco Cybertainment since Japanese culture has a long tradition into the martial arts as a philosophical and artistic way of life.
