Hungry for information for the recent UNIEST loketest which took place May 22nd -24th, 2015 in Japan?
Dustloop community members have been hard at work scouring twitter, other forums and community outlets for the information your looking for! A big shout-out goes to DL community member RurouniLoneWolf for compiling all of this information for us over on the Under Night In-Birth forums here on this site.
Hit the jump for a breakdown of the rebalance and update, and see for your self if your character is getting a much needed boost, or unfortunate nerf!
With Evo approaching and a hit squad of Japanese players heading our way, the Persona community has its work cut out for it in the coming months. In order to improve match-up knowledge, I worked with BananaKen to create a quick (or perhaps lengthy?) overview of some of Shadow Labrys's nastiest set-ups and how to escape them.

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!
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.
With Guilty Gear Xrd now available for both Japan as well as North America, plenty of videos and tech have come in for various characters.
On the tutorial side of things, I-no, a character notorious for being extremely execution heavy and requiring demanding play has been broken down for beginners looking to try her out. Check out these community created I-no tutorials after the jump.
With the Japanese release of Under Night In-Birth: EXE Late [uNIEL] imminent this evening (7/24/14) in Japan, there is sure to be a flood of interested players descending on various forums, wikis, and match vids looking for information so that they may better learn and understand the system and facets of this new IP.
Luckily, the players at Japan's Akihabara Leisureland Arcade in Tokyo, Japan have put together an amazing clinic showcasing the intricacies of the title; breaking down various game systems for the beginner as well as delving into some pretty impressive advanced strategies and offensive/defensive option selects. Hit the jump to get more info as well as to check out the videos!
Guts 3 will be going down this coming September 19-21 featuring almost every game under the sun and then some, at the legendary Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Ledyard, Conneticut.
But the real hype news here is that Godly airdasher/anime game player Ruu (GG - Bridget) from Japan will be making an appearance to participate in the Guilty Gear Accent Core +R tournament! While this is not Ruu's first appearance in the US for a Guilty Gear tournament (Evolution 2007), it does mark the first time that he has visited the East Coast, especially by himself.
Check out the information for the tournament as well as Ruu's visit to the states after the jump!
GameNow runs off of a monthly subscription, and for at the very least these 2 games are set at 450 yen (~$5.00 USD). Check the jump for more info regarding these two nostalgic titles, as well as the cloud based service model!

Hamad takes the tournament! (also Vogue's choice of Sol figure lol). Sorry for my rough commentary, i'll try my best to correct the sound balancing and my lisping/soft voice. Thanks for coming everyone, sadly Shinku Hunter never made it but it was great having everyone from out of town around. The next monthly will be held March 26th! If you have any feedback or questions regarding the event, please feel free to contact me by Twitter, Email, or here on Dustloop.
I know Momiji will be Celica cause the long hair. Also Kokoro as Baiken.
Ayane = Jack-O
Tina = Makoto
Mila = Bullet
Marie Rose = Platinum
Christie = I-NO
Helena = Millia Rage
Lei-Fang = Jam
Phase-4 = Mu-12
Rachel = Nine

I wish Team Ninja did the male cast too.
Well, more info...Here's a preview on the costumes for 4 characters.
Kasumi as Noel, Hitomi as Tsubaki, Nyotengu as Dizzy and Honoka as Elphelt. The DLC pack releases 3/14/17 and will contain 17 costumes for the female cast. As for the prices, supposedly $3 US for 1 costume, about $30 for the whole set. Free if you bought the latest Season/Costume Pass.
