    God I would love more balance patches for BB. I seriously wouldn't mind a new balance patch every 6 months or so.

    That pose and expression seem somewhat out of character, imo.

    I see two dates on the Blazblue side . Any way to clarify which date is for the artbook? And perhaps what the other is?

    Arcade Stick vs Controller

    Having made the switch to a arcade stick (AT LAST) I found my largest issue has been stick handling. Button inputs are fine for me, a sharp improvement over using a pad where my thumb handled all of it, but I found my movements with the stick is noticeably slower. I almost want to say its a matter of distance required to travel in order to make one input or the other, the pad's stick range of movement being much tighter than a arcade stick's, err... stick. This messes up my combo timing at times and much worse it increases my reaction time when responding to my opponent's actions.

    At least it isn't like Noel's specials, and she's been weak in almost every installment from the beginning. Most of her specials require you be in drive to use them, and they typically cannot be combo'd out of with the exception of 214A, 22B/C and 236C, 236A/B, which despite not being drive specials, all of which still need a special requirement to either land or use effectively, such as also only being combo fodder. And you figure, both Jubei and Susano'o are brand new. I'd rather new characters start weak and very slowly and steadily work up to being balanced, rather than pulling a Izanami or Nine and being oppressive top tier at launch. (Never forget BBCP launch Kokonoe)

    I view the drive as a whole as a different take on Tao's Drive, albeit a bit less flexible until you enter Lotus state.

    Checked, everyone else just has the red light. I was hoping for at least a different color for each.

    Does anyone have any idea about the details on Noel's 214A changes? Patch notes don't provide much details on that at all so its all pretty vague. Especially interested in the proration buffs, in particular.

    EA punishable on block? Does that mean other EAs are already punishable or only Ragna's is now?

    Still, at the very least, we do get an idea what color represents that character's soul. Not a particularly interesting piece of information, but some people might find it interesting to know, like details on someone's blood type or birthday.

    If that were true, then Nu-13 and Hazama need to be under Mu-12 for their roles as bosses in CT and CS.

    No idea where the timer will go, but my bet is the random select will go under Mu-12 Still kinda sucks they are basically confirming we won't get another character tho. Not sure who that would be, but still. Then again, we might be getting a tad bit spoiled when it comes to new characters. You figure, we started out with 12 in Calamity Trigger, then we got 8 in Continuum Shift, 8 in Chrono Phantasma and now we officially got 8 in Central Fiction. If they intended to follow that trend, there is no real reason or obligation to release another character.

    BlazBlue Central Fiction 2.0 Patch Notes

    Sort of wish we got actual numerical details about each change. A lot of the changes sound really nice, but probably won't mean much if the changes are really small, so the patch notes as written are particularly vague. That said, Noel's body invul on 4D from 1F and jump cancel-able 6As on block is super welcome.

    Yea, I was just kinda thinking about what direction I would prefer Blazblue to go in if it stepped away from the fighting game genre. Also kinda curious what he means by start fresh. Does he mean starting over from Calamity Trigger? Of course, the world can never know until he announces it, but still, its good discussion material.

    Not a fighting game? I hope not. The only thing I might find Interesting would be a strategy game centered around the wars of Blazblue or a hack and slash game like Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden. Pound for pound though, I want a fighting game.
