  1. Active DBFZ forums

    Ugh, not a huge fan of the Discourse format. But it's not terrible. Regardless, good for them and hopefully that still doesn't affect Dustloop forum activity.
  2. [BB:TAG] News/Gameplay Discussion

    Honestly, I don't mind 20 base characters and I don't mind 20 DLC characters. But Blake and Yang as DLC is nearly unforgivable. They're titular characters from the franchise that's in the cross-over. I feel like this was rushed for some reason...to be a community event at EVO2018? I'm really confused why they did this, it has to be more than just "how can we maximize revenue from DLC"... I'd be more forgiving if 14-16 of the 20 DLC characters were NOT BB characters, but that's obviously not likely. What DLC shit w/ DBFZ? $40 for 8 characters is a pretty standard $5/character rate. And it's Namco's decision anyway, not ASW's. But re: your pricing, why do you think it's $8/character? You even pointed out DBFZ's "shit", which is just $5/character. So what makes you think it'll be $8 for BBCTB? Just b/c of Jubei in CF? GGXrdREV's DLC characters were just $5. Not sure if Team Red/Blue decide for their respective games or if a central figure at ASW decides the prices, but Jubei may be the exception to the rule. Wasn't he like the most hyped new character in BB history, so they knew they could charge a premium? Plus, I'm sure ASW maybe learns from this backlash and tries to pull a solid for the fans.

    Looks like there's some silver lining to SRK forums closing. Still, RIP to them. But yay, Dustloop!
  4. Active DBFZ forums

    What I was afraid of. Shame really, I only discovered Dustloop last year and thought it was barren just due to the ages of the current ASW games. I'd much rather this be more active than having to resort to reddit. Oh well, will just have to adapt.
  5. Active DBFZ forums

    Is this sub-forum expected to be busier once DBFZ launches? I haven't found any other forums discussing this highly hyped game. Granted, I haven't really looked either... >_> Please don't tell me reddit or GamFAQS forums will be the place to be!!!

    Hmm, I do have a PS3...
  7. [UNIEL] News & Gameplay Discussion

    If I had a PS4, I'd still get UNIST as well. Unfortunately, still no Steam release date... ...tho that may actually be a good thing for my wallet and gaming time allocation!
  8. Kum Haehyun Critique thread.

    In general, I'd just throw fireballs and basically be patient. Wait for an opportunity to do an air combo for big damage or an opening to knockdown my opponent to do a fireball from behind + 5H crossup. Sorry to necro! But also testing out something on these forums =) (how to make the forum bolded w/ new content again).

    Wonder if current ratio is how the final roster will look? Looking bleak for supporting RWBY characters!
  10. [BB:TAG] News/Gameplay Discussion

    I'm a bit curious how getting into self-publishing will affect ASW as a business. Will they only do self-published titles? Will they still work as contractors for other companies? Will they publish/localize other developers' games? etc etc. Kinda makes me think of Gearbox. They have their own publishing division for some of their own games and other studios' games they publish for them. But they also still get outsourced to do dev work on other companies' games (Sega, 2K) and have some of their own IPs still published by other companies (2K. Tho BL is co-owned I believe, but Duke is 100% owned by Gearbox, still published by 2K).
  11. Arcana Heart 3 Kickstarter still going strong!

    I finally got AH3:LM!!!!! on the recent Steam sale and am quite fond of it. The character design is great and the Arcana mechanics are neat. Glad the latest version is getting KS'd, I'll be eager to get it.
  12. [BB:TAG] News/Gameplay Discussion

    Well, UNIEL does have auto-combos, but I haven't played P4A or BB:CF to compare one to another. How are P4A's and BB's different? One is not just spamming the same button?
  13. The "Picking a Main" thread

    Is "tools" another word for "boobs and butts"? Anyway, welcome! I'm new to the series too, been playing for just about 1.5 months, so my advice is not that of an expert. As for comfort, I presume that'd be personal preference, yeah? How you like their fighting style, inputs, etc. For instance, I like dual-maining and had it narrowed down to Ramlethal, Bedman, Haehyun, and Jack-O'. I narrowed down Jack-O' (as much as I loved her) b/c her sweep input is different than everyone elses, and I like consistency between the characters I play. I picked Ramlethal b/c I liked her combination attacks (something I'm used to from my time in NRS games). Bedman vs Haehyun just came down to flavor preference. I dislike DP inputs, so I was a bit reluctant to pick Haehyun, but after watching some vids, I learned you can be a good Haehyun player w/o using her DP. But yeah, it came dow to a teenage girl controlling a buff old-man mech vs a teenage boy who's asleep on a mechanical, weaponized bed. Both are bizarre and interesting concepts lol, but I just liked Haehyun as a character just a bit more. Imo, Jack-O' and Ram seem pretty versatile, Baiken seems decently versatile. I-No seems to have good mixups. They are all fairly weak on defense per http://www.dustloop.com/wiki/index.php?title=GGXRD-R2/System_Data, but I'd say I-No and Baiken seem to be the worst, although Baiken has really good Guts. None of those characters have charge inputs, afaik. I've read that's just Leo, Axl, Pot, Venom, and May. As for representation, i'm a PST player and in the PST and newbie rooms, I do see a lot of Ramlethal, some Baiken, a little bit of Jack-O', but rarely I-No. Anyway, I'd suggest looking at all of their individual pages from http://www.dustloop.com/wiki/index.php?title=Guilty_Gear_Xrd_REV_2 to maybe get a better idea or more information for what you're looking for.

    I'd hope so
  15. Why do you play BlazBlue?

    I first played BB (CT and CS) on PS3, but it was super casual. I hadn't played another ASW game for another 7 years until I picked up GGXrdREV2 a couple weeks ago. I won't get into GG, but I thought BB had a really cool aesthetic and unique gameplay compared to the more mainstream fighting games I was used to. But to be honest, there isn't much I can say about BB in regards to praise or reasons why I play it. B/c I don't play it, at least I haven't in years (tho I did boot up the PS3 earlier tonight to dabble in both BB's I have). I will say, my current circumstances - resorting to playing FGs on PC since I don't have a PS4/XB1 - means I need to find a new FGC niche, since I mained NRS games (w/ Smash and Namco sprinkled in) since basically forever. After much testing, I've decided to become an ASW convert! That being said, I'm more hyped for BB:CTB than I am for DBFZ (at least I think I am. At this moment, at least). And it's making me want to try out BB:CF, just to get a feel for the characters as characters - story, flavor, personalities, etc. There's a playlist on youtube that has all story mode content from all 4 games, and it's ~40 hours worth of videos! I like to play characters I like, so I may just choose RWBY and UNIEL characters instead of BB characters, cuz I'm just not sure I'll watch all those videos lol. I need time to train in GG! The other thing that makes BB a bit more desirable than GG is that the social media community seems more active. While GG has slightly higher player #'s on steam, BB seems to have more forum activity, active FB groups, etc. So that could be a factor, ultimately. But I am really looking forward to maybe giving an update in this thread. May I ask why?
