  1. In Japan BB is huge and definitely more popular than GG. In the West it largely depends. The FGC treats GG better but outside of that the larger casual fans seem to like both or the preference seems to be split.
  2. Why don't we just change the name to DIzzyLoop and kill all the character threads except for hers. I mean the game just came out and has 5 new characters but people still want to bitch about a character they flat out said wouldn't be done in time for launch.

    Yeah, I remember when Johnny and Dizzy were DLC in vanilla Xrd.

    Blazblue is always among the top most played games in Japanese arcades. It's not going anywhere and if you think it is you are delusional. BB is not so popular in the rest of the world but in Japan it is very much so.

    No I agree I'm sick of Jubei fans bitching and moaning as if every new character steals some imaginary "spot" from Jubei. He's either in or he's not and that is independent of every other character's existence. Not to mention that all it does is shit up perfectly good threads. Which is what we're doing right now.

    CS didn't do that Hazama, Valkenhayn, Relius for males Tsubaki, Mu, Makoto, Platinum for females

    With those identical "All white + secondary color trim with blonde/brown/white hair" color schemes, it really gives the impression that all Guilty Gear characters look exactly the same.

    No, the encryption is the same as the PS3/PS4 version. At the moment it cannot be ripped.
  9. Yes and no. The thing is, fighting game subcommunities are inevitable because of how different games are. People who play SF aren't necessarily going to play 3D games or Western games or Smash or...let's call them fast paced high mobility games. These subcategories exist for an obvious reason, and that is that there are specific types of fighting games that do things in a specific way. This isn't the problem and I know you're not trying to imply that it is, but you can't be surprised that not every style of fighter appeals to every player. Just like every other genre has subcategories, so do fighters. Now onto your actual point, for better or worse you are right that there is a stigma against "anime" as a concept in the west. But believe it or not, GG has never been immune to this. Even before BB and the like existed, people knew GG as "that fighting game with the heavy metal references and the anime art style." Granted, this is a very vital part of GG's identity and if it threw that away it would probably instantly lose like half of its fanbase, but that has no bearing on how the community acts, they are responsible for themselves. This is part of the reason why that vocal part of the GG community exists that gets so violently angry at the mere prospect of their game being grouped in with other games like BB. Despite how obnoxious these insecure people are, I do 100% see what you are saying. Smash has basically done the same thing with the way people now think of them as manchildren and furries due to the way they present themselves. (And for what it's worth, every fighting game community has weebs and weirdos in it, yes even and ESPECIALLY SF. Just that it's only in GG/BB and related games that it's really pervasive and part of the community's image. Not saying they need to abandon it or that they can't like what they do, but what you are saying does have basis in reality) It may not sound like it, but I'm actually 100% on board with you that trying to splinter groups is toxic for the community. It's already bad enough that we have so much shitflinging and infighting with people hating on other games. (SF5 vs SF4, SF vs other games, 2D vs 3D, GG vs BB, "normal" vs "anime" and FGC vs Smash and so on) but then when you have people trying to splinter off Arcsys "anime" games from non Arcsys "anime" games and shit. Trust me I'm sick of being lumped in like that too, I don't play GG and I'm tired of being told "well we can run GG and that's anime so you like it right?" We have people who think all our games play the exact same and they're all just button mashers with flashy sprites. However to play devil's advocate, the GG community is partially at fault for its decline. Whether it's the shit Marn pulled back in the day or the aggressive sense of insecurity and self importance that many GG players seem to have (God's Gift LOLZ! GG is the only good anime game praise be! We're not weeaboos fuck you SFV/MKX/Smash is shit why does nobody play our game?) they've done some shit in the past that has hurt them very badly. I can say this for 100% certain because I have experienced this in person at events and it is the #1 reason why I refuse to play the game. Fighting games are community driven, and if the community makes the experience unpleasant then it will kill the game no matter how good it is. This elitism is an extremely real problem, and it's not exclusive to GG (hell even BB has this problem) but I haven't seen ANY community be as bad about it as the GG community is. Not even Melee elitsts, not even Capcom fanboys. And if it's over Xrd, that's on a GOOD day, because god forbid you are a Xrd player having to deal with a +R elitist. But you know, you're right. It sure doesn't feel like we're much of a fighting game community, it feels like we're a bunch of communities fighting each other over stupid shit. I wish I could just play SF with one group, MK with another and then BB with yet another but it's not that simple, because we've splintered off communities to the point where we consider that because MOST people from game A won't play game B, then it means that nobody from game A SHOULD or WILL EVER play game B. Sorry for that long winded post. TLDR is basically that I agree with your core message but I feel like there is some slight bias/misleadedness in there. So basically this.
  10. to be honest as a non GG player I already feel extremely unwelcome everywhere I go. like I feel like GG is considered the only "acceptable" anime game and that if you don't play it you get tossed to the side with all the really obscure games. but in reality we're all looked at the same way, that's why we have to settle for scraps at some majors. half the time we only get one anime game run at a time because of some imaginary anime cycle, yet we get two Smash games and two (sometimes more) SF games. i honestly think it's time we stepped up and respectfully (that being the keyword) aired our grievances with TOs and media outlets. it's great that we have things like CEOtaku but i'm tired of us getting shafted while literally every other community gets treated well.
  11. They did. When they first revealed Terumi's new theme song in CP 2.0/Extend on stream, Mori and co named it after a Slayer song in dedication to Kayumi and had a brief moment of silence.

    Pin this.

    The solution is clear. Give Terumi force breaks.
  14. It's okay, it's the black sister doing it. #kappa I thought Haeyun was the name of the doll, not the girl?
  15. P4AU 2.0 Console Petition

    Have you reached out to Atlus themselves with this on social media? It's very impressive seeing the support this is getting, but I don't want it to be in vain. At the very least if Atlus USA or Arc System Works see it then you might get more momentum.
