So Xrd has been out for a little under a month now, and it seems like a lot of new people are interested in Guilty Gear because of it, which is awesome! I’ve recently started to hear more and more that new players are having trouble with a few key things, so to help with that, I’ve decided to write about a very important topic: Throws!
Now you're wondering why I've brought you all here. The reason why I decided to create this google doc is basically for the sake of being able to find players for the matchups that you lack or wish to get more experience in. Another reason is to find and identify many of the people who play these characters to varying degrees that many people may not even know of. Since starting Guilty Gear (with Xrd) I had to play a lot of catch up and had a pretty difficult time finding certain matchups. Even OG's lack experience against some of the newer characters who can give trouble, but I noticed specifically harder for a lot to find Bedman, so hopefully an open google doc where people can input their own information will create a much quicker way to find what you're looking for. There was about 1,000 people at EVO this year for Xrd and I'm hoping at least 40 or 50% can find this doc and input info. So just keep sharing.
Also as I'm starting to notice. This is a great way to help identify people that are near your scene that you didn't even know existed. Very great way to start having people come to your casuals so hit em up.
French player Alioune-sensei is world renown not only for is amazing Street Fighter IV play, but also for his skill and love of Guilty Gear. In Xrd, this is also the case as the lab monster has been hard at work developing unblockable technology for Elphelt, a newcomer to the series and console-exclusive character. Check out this playlist after the break.
Well, I think Aksys shouldn't have passively agreed with others who let their decision slide just to justify not doing an English dub. And if they were really responsive, I think they would've given a final yes or no answer to the petition instead of saying they needed a "push", then falling silent on the matter completely.
If ArcSys wants to get recognized overseas, then at least with BlazBlue they should've continued with the dub to make it more accessible to the western audience. Maybe they'll do the right thing if Central Fiction gets a Nintendo Switch port.
May I request Eltnum, in her official art, (The one that takes place in character select) in the Color palette 10# ("Living Dead") from Under night in-birth: EXE Late? I'll put in a reference photo, as well.
So, I'm a painter and for the longest time, I've been told I have talent, but I've never felt good enough to...you know, actually sell stuff. '-'
*ahem* Well, this year, I really started working harder on my art, and thought I'd try to sell at CEOtaku's artist alley, since I love a good Fighting game Tourney as much as art!
I just started putting together some stuff I'd want to sell, and doing the math on production costs, etc, but I'm a novice as far as all of this is concerned, and there's barely any external coverage on "fighting game artist alleys" that I can find... I've talked with a certain plushie maker online about her experience, but that was some time ago, and she's a vendor, so she only sees one side of things.
I'm just curious - has anyone here been to CEOtaku in the past, or events like it, with artists selling there? How was it? How many vendors were there, and how much did they have with them? Anything/one catch your eye while you were looking around?
I never got the chance to go there personally, and like I said, it'd be my first try at one of these, so I'd love to hear about your experience there, or elsewhere!
Thanks for reading!
