@Assault: So am I, but I'm finding the whole thing really weird particularly as I've only seen whatever stereo I saw, in the one vid. There are points in the regular combat, and even blocks, and not just special attacks, that have a half left, half right element. But it definitely also feels very central as well, no doubt about that. What's strange is I can't seem to hear any footsteps at all, mono or otherwise. Some of the blocks happen to the left or right but it's very subtle about it, and not in every match either. Some of the stages almost seem to be completely mono combat yet some of them have this weird stereo thing going on, but even when this stereo thing seems to happen, it's no where near as pronounced as the previous games at all, it's a different, more close up, style of stereo, yet something's there. At the same time it's so central it might as well be mono, and some of it does actually seem to switch to mono and this is why I'm finding the whole thing weird. Have a listen to the 7:42 mark, at 7:44 there's a couple of normal atacks and the voices and hits are in stereo, for instance. That's what's so weird about it.
