New system info and changes.
Spoiler:
System
- Burst becomes GG style, stock up to 2 bursts
- Burst no longer have damage penalty
- You start with 1 burst in round 1, and get 1 more burst per round, can stock two. So if you don't use your burst round one, you end up with 2 in round 2, but you can not stack anymore after that.
- You get one extra burst next round if you lose the round
- When regular gold burst hits opponent, opponent will bounce high and able to combo from there
- Guard Libra retains from round to round
- All AH unlocked
- You can use AH when you need one more round to win (not the final round of the match) with 100% meter and opponent's life is below certain percentage, character shines in white when it is possible to activate AH
- Heat Gauge goes up automatically from the beginning of the round (Yes, Everybody is like Haku-men now) (might be for loke test purposes only)
- Guard Libra length changes for every characters, meter goes down if the character blocks the specific move that breaks the guard (e.g. blocking Λ-11-'s 214D will let meter go down by 2)
- Guard Libra number
11 Tager
06 Hakumen Bang
05 Jin Noel Litchi Tsubaki
04 Ragna Rachel Arakune Taokaka Carl
03 Λ-11-



Appearance
- Projectile such as Arakune's Bee and Rachel's flog has a circle around them, easier to identify
- better animation
- new effect, new voice
- life bar turns red when it is extremely low
- New face pictures for character select screen

Woooooooooooooo.

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!

    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

    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.

    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.
