    Arc System Works continues to bring the heat to 2D fighters using polygon visuals. Much like the sprite days of reusing, retooling, and improving assets over time to build a more lush world - Arc System Works is using it's development of titles based off of the Guilty Gear Xrd use of the Unreal Engine to blow the competition out of the water.

    So much hype it hurts.

    Cannot wait to see more of this game in action. What a time to be alive!

    New trailer and official title announced last night.

    Sitting on Clouds OST music video to title track "Smell of the Game" in case your hype levels are deficient.

    Really excited for this damned thing! Granblue Fantasy Versus and Guilty Gear Strive releasing in 2020 - two reasons to keep on living another year!

    Woolie Vs has a gang of excellent videos!

    And a long form discussion of the mechanics from their time with the demo:

    Sorry, didn't post this sooner. Being locked inside during pandemic is giving me time to catch up. First hour is a player exhibition of test version, second hour is a Q&A session addressing long time player concerns. Turn the subtitles on in your Youtube settings to read along.

    Arc System Works is releasing character guides already. :eek: You can see how they're tweaking the UI in these as well. They're putting in the work. Niiiice.

    Looking forward to Axl and Potemkin. So happy Axl has pants again. Did not like the shorts in Xrd. Not one bit. :(

    Loving the scale on display in this game. Reminds me of Chronicles of Riddick or Borderlands, with the massive remains ad weapons of Gears in the background.

    Guilty Gear -Strive- Starter Guide #3 - May

    Guilty Gear -Strive- Starter Guide #4 - Axl

    Guilty Gear -Strive- Starter Guide #5 - Chipp

    Guilty Gear -Strive- Starter Guide #6 - Potemkin

    Guilty Gear -Strive- Starter Guide #7 - Faust

    And now for impressions and some bad news (absence of chip kills in Beta)...


    I'm still hopeful for the finished product, but I really want Daisuke and team to get rid of that no chip kill bullshit. It caters to the lowest common denominator. If there were no chip kills Evo Moment 37 would not exist.

    Don't like chip kills? Git gud, or don't play fighting games - there are plenty of other genres of games out there to play that won't hurt your feefees.

    Arc System Works doing the right thing on multiple fronts.

    Strive has been delayed until 2021.


    Hope they acknowledge player feedback and improve the finished product.
