    Don't think it's been mentioned, but another small bug in the PS3 version was that only the player selecting music got a different song. The other player just gets one of the two character's songs

    Nailed it. Some also just like the "fancy combos" and a few others think knowing combos make them win. It's really hard to convince people that fundamentals (and for GG system mechanics) are far more valuable assets than anything else Sent from my Galaxy Nexus

    Ultimately, I'd recommend checking out the whole cast. While there are characters that are easier to learn the game with, having fun learning is going to get you more excited and you'll probably learn faster/better. Knowing what kind of character you typically like would make suggestions a lot simpler. Some of the more typical archetypes are: Shotos - Sol and Ky Charge - May Venom Grappler - Potemkin Zoner - Axl Speedster - Chipp Shadow/Puppetmaster - Eddie Bridget Clearly not all inclusive, but it's a start. GG's cast is pretty diverse, so if you have a favored play style it should be fairly accommodating. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus

    If it's anything like PSP BlazBlue was, the console release will probably be about 3 weeks after. Just enough time for them to make whatever money they're going to from the impatient. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus

    Yeah, Bridget and May are the only two that I've put any serious effort into learning so I'm glad they're at least close :V ABA, Anji, and Eddie were some passing fancy that never fully panned out. I did enough with them for a feel but not really enough for much more than a maiden reaction.

    I've given a fair shake at a few characters, while I'm not very good with many of them I have a general feel: Anji - particularly easy, really the most difficult part thing I had with him was getting the feel for his guard points May - Also not exceptionally difficult, very straight forward gameplan and not really that challenging as long as you're good with charges. ABA - Kinda effort but Moroha damage makes her seem less so. Orbs loops are probably the only real difficult part. Bridget - Definitely both an effort and hard character. Setups take a decent amount of execution, and taking advantage of his movement and Roger requires some rather quick and creative thinking. Eddie - (Forgive me if I'm off on this, I've not played much of him) Hard character, but not really effort. It's difficult to wrap your mind around what you need to do with him, but the actual requirements are more "relaxed" than some other characters. To clarify a little, to me, effort characters are ones that are more demanding physically (strict timing, lots of buttons and motions) while hard characters are ones with unique mental requirements on the player. And yeah, Ruu is a perfect example of why some argue that Bridget is the most mobile character in the game.

    Again going to throw out that Bridget might be a fit for you. More mobility based than Carl with long range pokes, but Roger/yoyo fills a similar role to Nirvana. Even while inactive it's a threat zone, learning placement is a huge part of Bridget's game, a limited number of unblockables (mostly used as oki), and almost useless while being pressured. Biggest downside to Bridget is he's low tier in AC and ACR, but it's GG low tier so really you just have to be good at playing and you're still fine. As I said before, I've felt more "Carl-ish" with Bridget than I did with Eddie, but I also stopped playing BB after CS1 (for pretty much the same reason as you, didn't like what I was doing with Carl) so I could be a little confused on how he plays in CSEX. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIrTSCnptZA I know CV's aren't the best place to get an idea how to play a character, but it kinda shows off a little of what I'm talking about

    Bridget has some puppet master like qualities too. I've found him to be my current goto for that. Eddie really does feel kind of weird and not really what I like about puppetmasters so I know what you mean... Sent from my Galaxy Nexus

    Netcode seems good enough for friendlies if nothing else. Losing a ranked match vs a random due to lag would probably piss me off pretty fast though. But I never play ranked so whatever. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus

    There's two parts to HD. Sharp graphics is one, which GG doesn't really have, the filters make it look good enough though. The other is amazing color, espeically with high color contrast. GG excels in this area and it makes the game really look quite nice.

    The win screens are available English too. The only things I'm noticing are Japanese are the screens at boot and the credits have a lot of kanji and kana. Honestly I have no idea why there's a delay at all... Sent from my Galaxy Nexus

    True, but it never came out on PS3 before, and never had the promise of being updated to +R either. Even people that go out and buy the currently available versions will have to buy it eventually for +R, and while online is terrible for much of anything it does have importance for some people. Also holy shit people, why is it wrong for people to be hype for GG? Yeah it's been available previously (for years) but what does it matter? People are excited, and in my book that's a great thing.

    I admit that was a bit of an overstatement, but for a lot of people (myself included), this has been the first opportunity to get GG for a real console. People are getting impatient and just want to be able to practice at home, and it's a perk to not have to bust out the old equipment just to do so. When talking about killing the potential, well... it kinda is. I've heard more than one person saying if it doesn't come out soon they'll probably just move on, granted these aren't going to be the best players in the world if they're that uncommitted but it bugs me that it's even an issue to begin with. I think the most frustrating part is that people have been bugging Sony about it, making it very obvious they want to give Sony money, and are largely being ignored.

    The release being later than expected is starting to have the Arcana Heart 3 / Skullgirls effect. If it takes too long all the hype will be dead or everyone that was going to buy it will already have it from JPSN. People buying from the JPSN are mostly people that are already familiar with GG anyway, so it's potentially still ruining an opportunity for the GG scene to expand. The +R update will help bring the hype back fortunately, as long as it doesn't get botched up too.
