  1. [CF] Blazblue CENTRAL FICTION: News and Gameplay Discussion

    What you guys talking about? The Blazblue anime showed how terrible Blazblue's story really is as well as providing us imgur galleries of all the animation mistakes. It was truly a post-modern avant-garde masterpiece that didn't bind itself to pedestrian concepts like "pacing", "characterization" and "not being a pile of shit."
  2. As lazy as, say, Jack-o's design is, it's not gonna put people off the game by itself especially compared to SF5 which has eyesores like Birdie and R.Mika littering the cast. Honestly, things like Sol BadGuy's name has probably put more people off Guilty Gear with their first glance over the years. It's not something that can be helped really and we're not in the depths of, say, release SkullGirls (arguably now with Big Band still being much better than the rest of cast IMO) or Nitro Blasters or whatever where it is pretty much filled to the brim with waifu bait characters. Guilty Gear has those waifu bait characters but it's also got a bunch of other characters and archetypes going for it. I think tightening up the release schedules and even getting more cross-play is the way to go if Arcsys wants to make the series more popular outside Japan. It's hard to grow a scene for the game when the EU publishers are useless pricks and when by the time it gets localized there's yet another game looming on the horizon. I'm really glad the PC ports have been doing really well (especially after some of the porter staff were being cunts about people wanting the Xrd port) and that's a big step forward. Other than that, if you want people to try your game, don't be a memekid (haha man this guilty gear is so anime dood there's like this dude bridget who looks like a gir- wait where are you going) or try to put other games down.

    Yeah, Amane drills away at your defenses while Izanami is actually stealing your strength.
  4. I never really understood why the quality of the videos are so bad to be honest. It's a direct capture from the cabinet, right? And surely Nico Nico isn't so garbage that you can't host 720p60fps, right?
  5. Most of the time it's 360p with some random guy yelling into a WW2-era microphone out of the blue occasionally to make you shit yourself. I swear they have some competition to see how much their microphone audio can clip.
  6. because their pals live in other continents. Even ignoring GGPO which does let you play very reasonable cross-continental games, I played GGXrd on the PS3 with someone who lived in Illinois all the way from Scotland and got 4-6f. You wouldn't exactly want tournament play at that amount of delay but for casuals it's fine. There's no reason for the region locking really.
  7. Any news of tournaments or cons involving xrd btw? it's hard to keep track of events between Rev and BBCF

    Personally I'm just hoping that combos don't last for fucking years. As much as I hate Ragna's (especially CPEX) "Let me string together 4k damage with one combo that looked like it should've ended 3 times", straight up loops are even worse.

    Animaaaaaaay. Her visual design is pretty boring, which is a shame since her magic system looks fucking sweet. Am I right in saying she works like Invoker with her specials being button combos (IE. Fire+Ice+Ice)?

    I think I'd like active flow a little bit more if it was more apparent that you were getting it. They could reuse the guard libra UI element for it. It just seems like a really cool mechanic like AF should get its own bit of UI.

    Feint moves like that generally aren't even that strong unless, I dunno, you're trying to astral as soon as he hits the D button or something. It's usually really easy to just do something safe that'll work if it's the real deal or the feint. Hibiki's drive looks incredibly tame.
  12. The idea of not getting characters like Order Sol because on at least one path of the story mode (in a side story to a side story which may or may not be canon) I-No killed him is kinda garbage when Zato-1 got rezzed. I can understand Dizzy being a shoo-in since she's meant to be important but I would hope they don't make the story a deciding factor at all for excluding characters.
  13. Yeah, that's my worry with her. Also Jack-o's JP voice is pretty garbage too but it's not a dealbreaker like with Jam.
  14. To be fair it still means you have to play against her. It's why I hope English Jam isn't garbage because listening to JP Jam gives me a headache. I'd agree that Jack-o's visual design is pretty piss-poor but her minions make up for it IMO.
  15. oranges go moldy though fam It's nice to see CPEX actually coming out especially after the porters were cunts about it on twitter, but I'm hoping that they actually port CF in a timely fashion since they're actually finally up to date. The thing I'm dreading is if they decide that they're just gonna wait for CFEX to come out or some bullshit before porting and just release Battle Corps Love Uprising!!! Microstutter Edition in the interim.
