What is Blazblue?

Blazblue is a fighting game from Arc System Works, the makers of the famous Guilty Gear. It was originally meant to be set in the same universe, but apparently not? Anyway, to any of you who are familiar with Guilty Gear, you should know what to expect. Which is batshit insane characters, fast-paced gameplay and the best music to ever grace a videogame.

But how does it play?

Unashamedly copy pasted from wikipedia.

The game uses an 8-directional lever, common to most fighting games, and 4 attack buttons: Light, Middle, Heavy, and Drive, the latter of which activates unique special abilities for each character. Throws and throw cancels are performed by pressing medium and strong at the same time. In addition to basic dashing and jumping, there are also double-jumps and aerial dashes.

Heat Gauge: An energy gauge used for the Distortion Drive and Rapid Cancel.

Distortion Drive: Special attacks unique to each character that consume 50% of the heat gauge. Performed with some arrows motion plus the drive button.

Barrier Gauge: A gauge that regenerates over time, used for Barrier and Barrier Burst. The defense capability of a character is lowered for a set period of time when this gauge reaches zero.

Barrier: Pushes back the enemy and prevents guard damage. Performed by pressing weak attack and medium attack at the same time while guarding.

Barrier Burst: Pushes the opponent away, either when guarding or receiving damage, thus cancelling the enemy's combo in the latter case. Uses 100% of the barrier gauge and leaves it to zero for a set period of time. Performed by pressing all four buttons at the same time.

So, basically, mostly renamed versions of what's already in Guilty Gear.

Online details!
the match making system is awesome. I can honestly say, BB online model is far superior compare to SF4. Though might be a bold statement, But here's a quick breakdown:

Here's one scenario that should give you an idea.

I log onto XB Live, Play BB, go on network mode. I look for a rank match, but before that I wanna see among my friends who's in the top. From there, I can see some replays of my friends matches that they uploaded and see how they are doing. It'll even show you who they last played based on the icon next to their name. Next, I get bored watching my friends bullshit replays so I wanna see the top of the top, so I browse on the monthly leaderboard, I can now see who's at the top and check out his best replays and realize how sucky or how much better I am...So I get pumped up and I noticed some of my friends are online as well. So I start a lobby and start dictating the amount of slots I want for players and spectators. From there, I invite all my friends and we all say wassup and proceed to kick each others ass. We can save replays, spectate, and talk as much trash as we want. But wait, I got a homie that just signed on, sends me a msg, talking shit about my match!

But when I look at my lobby he ain't there!

How that works is my boy is searching for rooms to join but before joining, a player can see what's going on in each room, including icons that display who's currently fighting in the current match, who's winning the match, connection speed of the room, and who's in the lobby.

And there is still various other options and setups.. but that's just one example from player match...I hope that gave you an idea on what is to come.

And yes, this is for PS3 as well. So no haters please....

Now, hook up some rep points!

Story for anyone who cares:
Before the events of BlazBlue, humanity was on the the verge of extinction from the "Black Beast", a creature of Darkness. Hope came in the form of six heroes who wielded the power of magic. Together, the six heroes & humanity created "Armagus" a combination of Magic & Technology to defeat the Beast, which would be known as The First War of Magic.
After the war, the New World Void Space Cue Administration Bureau was created to govern the new world which has discovered the use of Armagus. Under the Bureau, Humanity began reconstructing & the world was under their dictatorship. However this caused much dissent for the people due to fact Armagus was used in every issue & the widening socioeconomic gap between those who could use & cannot use Armagus. This dissent would eventually form years later into The Ikaruga Civil War or The Second War of Magic, when the Ikaruga Union openly rebelled against the Bureau. After the war, the Bureau imposed a harsher rule on the world declaring anyone that defies them will be killed.
On December A.D.2199, several years after the Second war, a branch of the Bureau was utterly destroyed by an SS-class traitor named "Ragna the Bloodedge" also known as "the God of Death." His quest was to destroy the Bureau. The New World Void Space Cue Administration Bureau, hoping to stop him, immediately put the largest bounty ever for anyone who could capture him.

    Amazon says I should be getting my copy on Wednesday. Can't wait. I loved Guilty Gear.

    Ugh, lucky! I ordered my copy July 6th and it hasn't even shipped yet... When did you order yours? I need some sort of idea of when I can expect to play this game or I'm going to go crazy. D:

    Well I don't own a PS3, and lack the funds to make the purchase of one justifiable.

    HOLY SHIT that was a gaming marathon! Great games to everyone in the lobby! I shouldve taken some replays of the more exciting matches and posted em up on youtube or someshit.

    Blazero, I'm digging the Rachel and Tager. The Tager gets a bit predictable but thats probably cause we fought so many times. The Carl vs Tager matchup is 8 to 2 in Clovers favor while the Carl vs Rachel 7 to 3 in Rachels favor. Good to know.

    I don't fuckin believe that Carl has the advantage on Ragna. I suppose if I can avoid his guard breaking pressure and somehow get him in loop position he doesn't have much to escape... except for his shoryuuuken. Damn I hate Ragna sooo much! I'm not even sure why... :D

    edit: Convic Nic... If theres a lobby hook me up. :D

    So I resume my quest for Blaz Blue tomorrow lets hope that my EB doesn't completely suck and actually has the damn thing in stock. I doubt it will in this frozen tundra of a country but we will have to see.

    Whoops resurrected the older thread back there. Anyways repeat:

    When you're looking for a room to join under player matches; is it really designed so that if a match is going on you can't even join the lobby? Even Dead or Alive had something like that if I remember right. I'm just suprised with a game with such well designed multiplayer doesn't let you wait in the room's lobby while the match finishes. Or am I just missing something?

    I think it's because the online is so virtually lag free you can't join or you'd mess up the room, or something.

    Ah well I guess that makes sense.

    Ok well I have to keep taking breaks because my left thumb starts aching after awhile. I'm just curious if anyone knows of any decent 360 alternative controllers for fighting games that aren't over $100. I know those Street Fighter IV tourney sticks are nice and all, but the pricetag... D:

    I had thought about buying something in the past (1st for Virtua Fighter, then Soul Calibur, followed by Street Fighter, then...) but kept putting them off. At this point it'd probably make sense to invest in something to enjoy the games more. Course it'll probably just create some nice arguments over who uses it when friends come over...

    Hmm...if you're looking for a decent fightstick sadly you're going to end up paying 80+, The SF4 fightstick is your best option at this point and even then I'll say it's only good once modded so probably makes no different than buying a more expensive one.

    The Madcatz Fightpads are supposed to be pretty good, I hear.

    The standard Fightstick is $80 but the stick and buttons are crap so you'd eventually have to spend more money for quality parts.

    It's too bad that it can't put you in a queue to join the room or something, though.

    Hmm...my brother had a EX2 before. He liked it but I remember one of the buttons breaking down on him just 2 months after he got it. But 50 bucks for a fightstick ain't bad(not to mention most fightsticks are easily modded anyway.

    I'm interested in a hori too, anyone got anything to say about em?

    I see I was late quoting this, how easily moddable is the hori? Say if a button were to die, or would a 80ish dollar custom stick be the best bet?

    My understanding is that sirlin got to the top of the sf2 leaderboard with an unmodded ex2 - though I can't say much about durability of buttons or anything since I modded mine basically as soon as I got it.

    The parts being kinda cramped in there is the hard part of modding it.

    If it wasn't for a sudden unexpected expense, I would be picking this up, instead of leaching off my roomate's copy. It is a lot of fun, and while I was turned off by GG's stylistic directions, I do like BB's humor and overall quirkiness. A lot.
