    [CF] Blazblue CENTRAL FICTION: News and Gameplay Discussion

    At first glance Jubei moveset looks like Taokaka, Bang and Valkenhayn combined. I am very concerned about his damage dealt. Of course I am happy that they finally made him playable. Almost. It seems that Guilty Gear need to wait :D However UNIEL really surprised me.

    Except the things were you discussing guys... Any sign of Central Fiction Material Collection? It's almost seven months after release and zero information about it. The only existed publication I was able to find (or rather say had got knowledge) is „ES Works”.

    Next Famitsu will bring some information about "Story Mode" in CF. ----------------------------------------------------- Mai's as a new playable character was predictable since ArcSys posted her new outfit picture. However I don't care much about Mai but I am really curious abut her theme. How is it going to be like if we consider all Mai's metamorphosis through the manga and her balanced personality (compare to cherfuul Makoto and serious-type Tsubaki) as well? Hope that we will be able to hear some sample before release. I believe that also Variable Heart manga will spoil/expalin something before Central Fiction.

    Hell these combos, juggles, dash moves and this possible disortion at 1:05 are looking awesome but on the other hand nothing it's known about damage dealing. I am really curious how much dmg she is able to do by any combo cause she seems to be pressure character with ability to put some traps. Probably yes but I am thinking also about Take-Mikazuchi "Ultimate Form" which was mentioned by Nine in her Act 3 ending. However it's doubtful possibity that Nine will be able to complete all Nox Nyctores.

    Lol I have just come back from work and you brought so many revelations. So... Es is a fast swordmaster = she is a polar-opposite toward Kagura.

    Exactly Zedar-sama. Good to know. I probably won't be able to wait because I am just so curious to see weeaboo side mode on weeaboo side mode off All is not lost yet cause Zedar has a blog. Like I said several pages before I was thinking about JP version but the gap won't be that HUGE between NA and EU players (I excluded Japanese who are playing on Arcade version) to convince me to buy it. Especially If the game is going to have a long life span so it's a matter of time to square with JP players too. However I have another dilemma: buy a PS3 version or PS4 version or maybe both? I am considering the last option.

    Are you going to put the "Story" in the CF Plot Thread like you did in GGXrd??? I suppose that you will be one of the first on the forum who will obtain Japanese version. Kan-Ra Another example similiar to my vision is Omega Red from Capcom's "Children of the Atom" or "Marvel Super Heroes". Generally Scorpion from the MK is an archetype of "pulling" characters thanks to his Kunai.

    Yeah... In Clavis' case the BlazBlue construction might be troublesome: I mean all playable characters has a role in the "Story" so he would need at least some plot in the Arcade. It could be even one "Act" like probably Es is going to have. The "Story Mode" isn't that problem because Clavis could appear as a wraith/spirit/voice/whatever but the "Arcade". I am afraid that Taro thanks to his abilities might become a mid-range zoner (similiar to Amane) or some combination between zoner and grappler (BlazBlue doesn't have that kind of character). In the first case we have several zoners: Lambda, Mu, Nu, Amane, Rachel and mixed one Litchi (I have excluded chars with projectile moves) so I think it's enough? The second seems to be little more interesting: Taro would be able to pull enemies by his strings from med/long distance and do some special throws, chain throws (depends from meter), shock them with electricity etc. However these "pulling-moves" shouldn't be able to block/cancel too easy. Another grappler who is potentially faster, more agile and more universal than Tager would be fresh. Another Murakumo isn't necessary. However:

    I suppose that you are speaking about discussion between pages 125-131. It would be better to not repeat it I might know how you feel because there is too much "fanservice" in the anime (especially in those without manga-prototype) and in the Japanese video games since 2009 so it's just oppresive. Many are people complaining about it what is understandable but on the other hand: Comics publishers like Marvel or DC had been spreading some kind of "fanservice" way before this "phenomena" started in Japan. A lot of modern mainstream music videos expose "nudity" Mori isn't responsible which characters are going to be playable or not. It's still better to have a female "waifus" instead of "trap"-characters like Noel-Prototype from Guilty Gear -> Bridget (Amane acts and looks definitely too manly to be perceived as crossdresser(?). He is some parallel bishōnen) These waifus at least have a personality and role in the story. They are not only here to show theirs "attributes". Mainly Mai and Makoto were used in the Remix Heart's "fanservice" gags/scenes/whatever. The "nudity" in the pop culture isn't the issue exclusive for Japan. Nowadays the whole pop culture has it. I think that a nice surprise would be Clavis in his prime time as a playable character. A strong, rush char with some projectiles moves.

    Ah. It's understandable: especially if someone prefers traditional ways of colouring instead of computer graphics. However nice Makoto x Ragna draw. I never imagined this pairing but it looks quite adorable. I like the Ragnakaka too. It also seems that you made Ragna more feminine(?) on both drawings instead of typical „tough guy” archetype. ----------------------------------- I have noticed that users post their redraw works on this thread as well as GG thread so I will put mine: CP Noel It took 3 hours :| I skipped both ears + right eye didn't go well. I haven't been drawing since 2008 so I need a training before I will put own ideas with BB heroes on paper. This is actually a good practice.

    It reliants on NA release but probably we (EU) will get the game on February/March 2017. Look how fast the CP release was. Needn't to worry in my opinion. Of course it often depends from company's inner poltics but after 2010 the "half year of waiting for Japanese game" in the Europe it's a rarely situation now. I forgot to add that it was half year after NA release so usually it was a long year from JP. Speaking about potential gap if someone is participating in the tournaments: gameplay and mechanics aren't going to change that drastically much except that we will get several new characters who are needed to learn (Izanami seems to be little OP, nothing know about Es) but for a patient player isn't a problem. Btw. an idea to buy a JP version mainly for playing isn't stupid too -> if someone doesn't care about the story I would do that. However gamers who are playing BB on PC will need to wait probably two years.

    I saw it on your DeviantArt before -> simple but nice drawing and l like the "gentle-way" facial expression which you put on Nine. The question is if you are going to draw more "full" characters cause mainly it seems that you are focusing on portraits. You have a skills so I encourage you. --------------- So I guess that redrawing arts, scenes etc. from the game are perceived as the rip-offs and it's fordbidden to put them too???

    If I am correct financial resources which were spent on production on GGXrd wasn't so huge. Though totally new engine on which this game was built might be the the most expensive investment I am not sure about their cooperation with Sega Sammy now. For example another small company like Game Freak (Pokemon series) has support from Nntendo. However only two main series (I have excluded their other games and potentially new flagship project) + they focus mostly on two genres in the video game industry which are a niche (2D fighting and VN) + "teams" are cooperating with each other (Daisuke composes music both for BB and GG) + small size of the company (so staff aren't so enormous) = much more effort in the quality of the games. Companies like Capcom which I mentioned before and Square Enix unfortunately transformed into corporations and this change always provides two things: 1) An irritating calculation-marketing process -> "The game didn't sell over X mln copies? Forget about sequel!" or "Statistical profit doesn't correct? Cancel the project now!" -> yep even if production of the game been on the middle or almost completed 2) Costs of functioning are definitely higher especially if the company has a worldwide status. Speaking of ArcSys again I am interested in what are they going to do with Technos Japan's legacy -> reviving Kunio-Kun? Time will tell. From my side I am going to end this subject cause this post will change into novel if I put all reliances and factors.

    I would even say that it's a "tiny" company: they don't have more than 90 employees. We don't need compare them to the huge companies in Japan like Capcom or Bandai Namco. The smallest one are enough comprasion: Type-Moon and Tecmo are larger. In terms of "size" ArcSys it's a little "indie". Fans' wishes??? I know that it sounds like "Utopia" and it's a very rarely phenomenon but for example "The Legend of Zelda" series: players were so confused about the story so Nintendo brought the "Hyrule Historia" book on 2009 which explained a lot of questions. Small thing but a very nice gift from creators. There is also a possibility that other company will take BlazBlue series. My personal wish it's a j-rpg BlazBlue. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Speaking of game I am glad that nobody in "ArcSys" get an idea to remix all themes like they did in the CP. Of course some some of them like "Gluttony Fang" or "Queen of Rose" are better but another like "Lust SIN" or "Black Onslaught" worse (overdone).
