In CP or CS? I don't actually remember why she goes after Terumi in CS proper. She was smarter in Alter Memory.
She goes after Terumi in Continnum Shift because she was mad that he used Tsubaki like he did. She does that in both the arcade mode and the story proper and he made her so angry he popped her limiter.
Oh yeah, that's pretty dumb of her. It made more sense in CS where she goes after Tsubaki, gets stopped by Makoto, and then Terumi shows up to smelt her.
Weird that she'd try to get revenge like that.
For those who are interested in more of the background of Blazblue. Someone been translating the LN for it . Phase Shift 1 deals with the start of Trinity love issue deal.
If they're going to have that it will presumably be in CF.
Yeah, I think that's unlikely as well, but one or both of them could appear as NPCs. Or if CF has an epilogue they could just say that they got married or something.
Shiori was hired by members of the Kisaragi family who wanted to eliminate Jin in order to open the way for them to become the heir. Competition in the Kisaragi family is extremely cutthroat.
Shiori fell for Mai because Mai was literally the first person that Shiori met who honestly cared for and showed compassion towards her. This was because Mai sympathized with Shiori after seeing her memories as they had both been raised to be used as tools by their families and had loveless and friendless childhoods. Shiori's devotion was such that she was willing to take a bullet for Mai.
Being treated as a tool by her family and getting systematically abused by them really fucked Shiori up psychologically. Finding a kindred spirit in Mai who honestly cared for her helped her overcome her trauma and start caring about other human beings.
When you think of Shiori what voice do you think would best suit her? Mai and Kajun surprised me in both languages but Shiroi throws me off, I can't place a voice on someone like her who speaks in the third person.
I like the fact that when asked to draw something, Tsubaki immediately went with Hakumen.
>That green outline on the black body
Can't fool me, Terumi.
From the opinion I seen from it is that it's doesn't do a lot of justice towards the game because of rushing everything and the animation isn't really top notch either. But, the dub seems to be a comedy gold mine and can make it pretty fun to watch.
So /blaz/, what have you learned today?
I've learned that Rachel is cute~!
I actually just started Xblaze desu senpai
I'm personally hoping that if we get an anime adaptation of CP, it's changed so that Celica either has much less screentime or is written as a punching bag as well as Ragna punching Kagura and Kokonoe in the face respectively.
You know what I'd love? If we do get Guilty Gear Vs. BlazBlue/Arcsys All-Stars, the GG cast constantly shits on Celica like Sol calling her an annoying retard, Elf getting pissy at her annoying nature making her look bad, and Ky calmly telling her to please leave the area.
>mfw I play certain people online that I used to often lose to
>Now I can beat them consistently
>They respect me a lot more in neutral and hesitate to approach me more often.
Getting good is possible /blaz/. Never give up on your dreams.
You're right. They don't, and she's a great character.
Maybe every big player in BB isn't as good as we always say they are. Maybe everybody else is just more shit than one or two players.
The point is progress can be made by anyone you fucking negative nancy.
Besides, no one will ever surpass the gods like Fenrich and Dogura, and my personal heroes,
Kogatan and Monster.
>Poorly shoved into the story and takes up half of CP's screentime.
>Acts like an obnoxious autistic goodie-two-shoes with no flaws whatsoever for the entire game that almost everyone loves as well as making them look like idiots.
>Doesn't fight at all or even gets hurt directly but instead it's her shitty robot as opposed to someone who actually is fighter material.
>Nerfs Ragna's powers and scares Terumi off with her pressence storywise.
>She played a part in Ragna and his siblings lives getting fucked over due to her shitty parenting.
>Aggravating screechy voice in both Japanese and english.
>"Oh Mr Hakumen, you were always so nice and funny! ^_^"
The Lambda pandering episode is 100% canon.
So gaiz, i bought Chronophantasma Extend since it was on sale and I enjoyed Guilty Gear. I have a few questions, if ya don't mind.
Stylish or Technical?
English or Jap?
Is there any character who's total rushdown similar to something like Slayer?
Who cares, Lambda a qt
Just play technical. Unless you just need to run through story mode stuff or something.
Both dubs are great, I play English but if I were a bigger seiyufag, I'd love the Japanese.
Valkenhayn? I don't know what Slayer's like, but Valkenhayn has Slayer colors.
Platposters are some of the best shitposters desu. They have it down to a science, waiting for the right moment to strike. A few flurries of Platinum posting, not to derail, but rather unite everyone else.
Honestly? We know there's more than one. But I wouldn't be surprised if everyone has platposted at some point. The baton is passed, if you will. Many have partook. Yes, even
you, Tsundere-anon :3
just contributing. believe in yourselves platfags
Seems like a tie between English and Japanese, and Technical is definitely the winner. As for the characters, I'm not sure who I like yet, but I'll check out Azrael first.
There's always so much hatred in these threads. They could use a little more love.
As it should be.
You know Lambda's gag reel in CS? That happened, but with Ragna and far more adorable. The only way it could've possibly been better is if it still had Makoto anyways.
Well, not that much more than in the games, but it had some cute moments.
How about instead of bitching about characters for the 19th billion time, we talk about gameplay for once.
>Who do you main? And why did you decide to main them
>Any match up questions or just general questions you'd like to ask about the game or your character?
>Are you going to stick with your main in CF or are you going to try someone new?
>>Are you going to stick with your main in CF or are you going to try someone new?
considering I play Bullet, Lambda and Terumi I see no reason to switch. I mean, it can't get any worse, right?
I'm glad they're all stronger in CF
I'd honestly recommend just focusing on one character right now when you're learning the game. You can come back to the first two when you have a more solid understanding of the game
I always mained basic rushdown characters.
Both Naoto and Hibiki look pretty rad, but I will always main Ragna for life.
I liked the relationship Elf and Ram had, especially during the climax of Xrd first,
Did she really lose her humanity in Revealtor?That's fucked up, but at least Ram's vocal clips and facials will change.
Taokaka and Bullet seem fun: getting in their face and smacking them around. Anything similar to that? I think Slayer was a bad example, maybe something more like Ramlethal? Is that what I'm trying to say?
Is she calling him an idiot like in the game or saying some other stuff? Despite the missing Arm Ragna doesn't look nearly as fucked up as he does in this picture.
oh ive been playing for years now. but when playing someone at my level or above i need to use my best most of the time. what do you guys do with DP characters? feels like they get a free pass on wakeup and other shit. would love to start working on some way to get around them.
>jin b/c he was the character i picked when i first played CT at an arcade and he's also best boy
>can the guilty gear crash course videos help with playing blazblue better?
>jin it to win it every game, but there's nothing wrong with tsubaki/izayoi secondary.
You make them pay for whiffed/blocked DPs. I know most people say to focus on fundamentals, neutral/footsies over combos when learning characters, but that's not entirely true.
With the exception of maybe Litchi, it's stupid easy to get 3k+ off of a blocked DP with any character. You should at least keep one of those strong, "punish" combos ready to go for DPs
my problem isnt that i dont have a good punish combo but the risk i guess. even throwing out fastest moves get dped. either take a huge risk for small reward or take no risk by keeping space and blocking. trying to trick them by using a fast move that recovers before they get up and block their dp can only work once or so.
Reminder to newfriends that the Steam sale is ending soon. Just grabbed CSE for ~$8 CAD. Was going to pick it up for Vita, but figured I might as well take advantage of the sale, saved myself about $25
>Is there a way I can do decent damage not on counter hit or AA
>Yes because his new move looks good, and he is my waifu. I want to try Hibiki though because his Izuna drop looks neat. Hoping Kajun gets into CF at some point.
You have to condition them to not just throw out DPs willy-nilly. You have to bait out those DPs, block and punish. If you have a decent enough punish for it, 2 of those combos and that's 50% HP.
If your opponent thinks he can mash them out, he's going to DP all day. You have to be the one that makes him stop.
If there are new people here who want to understand the plot I would suggest getting CSE. It has a more extensive summary of the first game and well... it is the second game.
>tfw got the vita version for 4US$ on sale
Okay... after playing around for a bit I really like Bullet. She just seems to get in the opponent's face and do absolute work.
There is no slowing down, there is no backing up, there is no stopping whatsoever.
It doesn't feel like mix-ups or waiting for them to slip, it just feels like i charge at them right out of the gate and they don't even realize they're being hit until at least 8 hits are already into 'em.
That sum it up right?
I'm bad at fighting games, and used to losing. I really like playing fucbois so naturally I gravitated to Amane even though I knew he was a weak character. I just accepted I would rather get good/lose with him more than any other character.
Best dad, liked the two-in-one idea behind Carl back in CT but found managing Nirvana too annoying and Carl a bit too helpless without her. Managing Ignis is also fun.
Will probably stick with him in CF, but do plan on trying out Naoto and Nine at least.
She uses a staff and her playstyle isn't like a long range melee character. Though she has a couple good long range attacks she's more about throwing the staff to protect her rushdown.
You say that like Ragna hasn't replaced Jin already.
It's too late. He's stealing Ragna's loli vamp and there is nothing we can do, they even have matching clothes.
I don't know much about BE, but Naoto seems like a decent guy overall, and unlike Ragna he actually gets shit done, so I'd be okay with Rachel sticking together with him
prettier than Ragna
>CSE Steam Edition workin'
>obviously time to do ranked match
>he loses disgracefully trying to TRM my ass
Is this the norm on Steam netplay? Just people trying TRM for wins?
Ragna still has his Murakumo harem, Tao and Celica.
here, I improved your pic with my ms paint skillz
Why would you bully Celica, it's like you want to die horribly at the hand of the cat fucker.
Always mained Hakumen for the justice. Buffs incoming ZEA desu. I already side Relius and I think about siding Saya or Naoto.
I don't really see her being playable to be honest.
Dem dirty zoning/rushdown tactics
Why doesn't anyone block 6A?
Probably gonna stick with'em
what rachel needs is a new form. noel and tsubaki got one so give rachel something for once. i have no idea how it would work but maybe have her ditch nago and gii and fight solo holding nothing back.
ZEA is all the justice I need in my life.
>he might become a girl
His suffering knows no end.
Face it, it's the only way this story can end happily.
He'd learn to enjoy it.
How do you know that Ragna won't like it?
Well, gender-bending is already a thing in the world, so it's not too much of a stretch. It's not going to happen either way, though it'd be fun to see the cast and their reactions to it.
After living for months as a girl, Mai's mind turned into that of a girl to match her body. She got used to living as a woman, lost interest in girls and started liking boys.
Kajun is straight though. She likes to tease Mai because it makes her flustered, but when she thought that Mai was actually a lesbian she freaked out and backed away.
>Face it, it's the only way this story can end happily.
how about they kill the bad guys and everyone's happy? No need for retarded gender bending
you'll get a gag ending at most
Maybe if Mai had Makoto's personality she could have attempted that.
Rather interesting that Makoto only molests Noel and Mai. I guess she doesn't want to mess with Tsubaki and Kajun who'd be less forgiving of her.
Does anyone want to play against an azrael that's trying to shake off his rust
In other words, she's a good woman. What's the problem?
Degeneracy. My Blazblues are too pure for this disgustingness.
Where's Bullet, we have some right-wing activities to do
There was an increase in Mai and Kajun fanart when they appeared in the CPE story mode, so that seems likely.
She can shlick.
This, Kajun especially
If you have boobs, it means you're a girl and you're not supposed to fap, you're supposed to find a man to stimulate you
But my waifu is a lolicon and a pedophile
i fucking love celica and no amount of bullying will make me think otherwise so bring it on you fucks
This thread is horrible
I am glad its so dead
Seriously, guys, should I get it?
>I still don't understand what the hell is with this pose even now
Is it even playable with just a keyboard? I have no knowledge pertaining to fighting games on PC, even less than I do with consoles.
I played fighting games for a long time on keyboard when I was younger. I had the arcade rip of CS back in the day and played that on keyboard a ton, heh.
You can do a lot just fine, but make sure to take breaks or it'll make your hands/wrists really sore. 360/720s are the only thing fairly impossible on keyboard imo, but not many characters have those anyways.
I'd recommend getting a cheap controller or stick, but you'll be fine without it if you're playing casually or for short bursts.
yes, but honestly this board sucks for talking about fighting games.
Oh excuse me
I only see waifu posting, autism about said waifu posting, tranny posting, storyshit and avatarfagging
Only a little bit of people trying to videogames and failing miserably
What a disgusting general
Which is better; Mai in a bikini or Mai in a competition swimsuit?
Both are fine.
Naked apron is acceptable too.
Playable never, unless they decide to make super Platinum or something.
How do I zone properly with Terumi?
That's natural. Mai's hips are perfectly designed for reproduction.
Would you like Celica more if she had breasts as big as those of her sister?
She's perfect no matter what
/blaz/ happened because /asg/ told all the waifu and storyfags to go to /v/, so they did and /asg/ died because of it. Then for months, some /asg/ faggot(s) whined that all the waifufags had to come back because their general died, spammed the thriving Blazblue threads on /v/ until retard janitors banned Blazblue. So now we have /blaz/ and half the posters.
Would you want her to be your little sister?
>How do I zone with a rushdown character?
Naoto: "I just have to punch you then."
Ragna: "Fine...Try it, you shitty brat."
Ragna vs. Hazama: "Which one are you...? Rather, where's your other part?"
Ragna still retains some memories of Terumi.
The key bindings for CSE on Steam are confusing the everloving crap out of me.
Completely untrue since pic related exists
You could try going by your local Gamestop/EBGames and go dumpster diving for controllers. Or if you can't find a working one, scavenge whatever is there and sell them at a swamp meet or something.
checking pixiv for new stuff. heres link to plats tag if your interested
I'm told Celica is the easiest character to pick up quickly. This true? I'm married and work full time so I don't have the lab time that I used to. I just want to get competent enough to play with the guys from my locals without flailing around not knowing what I'm doing too much.
hakumen might be a good choice. you play passively for meter and can deal nice chunks of damage once you build some up. just having his counter is good and keeps people on their toes just keep in mind people will try to throw the shit out of you so keep that constantly on your mind. what i see alot is when he does 6b people cancel it into counter alot. if you use that to much they will just bait your counter though. just dont mindlessly throw out counters
I tried playing Gouken for a while so I know not to mash counters. I like being able to poke and Hakumen seems good for it. What are some combos I can get myself started on so I can get rewards off hits?
go into challenge and look at some of his midscreen corner and throw combos. with hakumen you can do very simple stuff and still get good damage so dont try anything that you cant do consistently. with hakumen his combos are pretty short too just a couple of hits.
Not yet, but they do appear in a flashback Makoto has.
I don't know about specific brands/models, but the input lag (which does exist) shouldn't be a problem if you're playing always on the same tv, you adapt to it so no, you're not dropping combos because of it (unless your tv happens to be exceptionally laggy as hell, which I think is unlikely)
it could only be a problem when playing on another tv, with a significant difference in input lag
Closed eyes represent smiling, like in this image, since the eyes contract somewhat when one smiles and exaggeration is used to get the point across. Same reason ^_^ is a smile. According to one study, Asian people pay more attention to the eyes when people are smiling than Westerners do.
No. She looks the same size as always.
She's not dying any time soon, not with the biggest Celicafag of all time on duty.
CF really is making it look like Nu won't have a happy ending...I want to protect her smile anons. On another note, what about this new move of hers is it useful? Was it worth losing spike chaser for it?
The guy that does badass mecha poses, most famously this one
Nu will be happy once she gets her "true Merge" We just gotta believe anon!!
It hurts me too, but she will persevere, Nu didn't painstakingly put herself back together from the boundary for nothing! She will get her "True Merge" and then go on to be the happiest girl in Blazblue.
She synced not fused, it's a different thing man
>Her love is the most pure
Not if the waifufag writer has anything to say about it.
My wife's son keeps egging me on to play him in CPEX. I personally don't like Blazblue but my wife is threatening to restrict my allowance if I don't spend more bonding time with him. So I was wondering, which character plays like Miyako from Melty Blood?
>my wife is threatening to restrict my allowance
she grew up alone with jubei and isnt get around others thats all
How can you like Litchi? Litchi is only decent in gag reels, and completely pointless and a waste of space in the story. That shit because of Roy is so fucking annoying to keep hearing about. God damn, Bang really needs to smack some sense into her.
What the fuck am I reading
Do you herbivores not see what Litchi has on the upper front of her torso? Her hair? Her glasses? Her voice?
You filthy roricondonome.
See, liking a design is one thing, but then they have that wonderful personality tacked on.
Celica is so fucking bland and inoffensive, it's so god damned hard to even care to hate her. Litchi actively makes it easier than shit to dislike, especially with that crap at the end of CP.
I don't really hate any of the characters in BlazBlue, aside from Terumi, and even then that's on purpose.
Besides her obsession with a blob, I don't see whats so bad about Litchi.
What's funny is that Roy never appears to give a shit about Litchi in the flashbacks. He's obsessed with sticking it to Kokonoe. However Litchi still helps to kill off humanity and destroy the world in the hope that he just might end up getting brought back afterwards.
Makoto is alright as she got over her racism issues after meeting her friends. Mai managed to accept her gender and also appears pretty well-adjusted and happy after that. Kajun doesn't appear to have problems, though she is rather manipulative.
Litchi is shit because of her obssesion with Arakune, she doesn't seem like a bitch in the flashbacks
from Roy's perspective banging Litchi is a much better deal than Kokonoe's dirty and hairy beastkin pussy
It's a ridiculous flaw. She helps to destroy humanity in order to try and bring back a dude that ignored her and who brought his fate on himself. Arakune even begged her to let him die. That retard should get her priorities straight.
