>kids who adopted the retarded "GG is manly metal for manly men and BB is for weebs" bullshit
>aren't even old enough to have played GG in it's hayday but copy and paste said "popular cool kids" opinion
>were surprised when there's predominantly comedic and cute things in Xrd
>Unironically posting stuff like "lol anime is for nerds"
/v/ermin of the worst kind
I hope you fuck off back to marvel and smash
Honestly the only real difference between GG and BB in terms of tone or themes was GG was better at whacky abstract comedy and BB was better at serious storytelling.
Dizzy and Bridget have existed since XX and I guarantee approximately 1% of /v/irgins who post about GG cared about the franchise before that game.
And even before that? May existed. Jam is pretty fucking moe too. Guilty Gear has always had cute girls (and boy that looks like a girl) doing cute things. People who think otherwise are deluded and unwilling to admit that the original anime fighting masterpiece was, in fact, anime as fuck.
I've been a huge GG fanboy since vanilla XX, but God do I hate the part of the fanbase that does nothing but jack off to how hardcore and metal they perceive it to be. Talk about rose-tinted glasses.
I think the only difference between Guilty Gear and Blazblue is Blazblue doesn't take itself near as seriously.
Guilty Gear has a main character who's the most stereotypical "tch, nothing personal kid" tough guy anime protagonist, Blazblue has a main character who's practically a parody of that whole archetype.
BB can do comedy and GG can do serious, but in general they're much better at what I mentioned.
GG built a really crazy yet flexible clusterfuck of a universe and BB built one that's a super complicated yet tight knit story with time travel and multidimensional stuff taken as serious points.
They had different goals from the outset.
>and BB was better at serious storytelling.
Eh even BB tends to make fun of itself a lot.
GG barely has a story though, especially compared to Blazblue.
Maybe Xrd changed that, but I can't remember any of the other games having much more than a fleshed out arcade mode.
I can't tell.
Besides her getting even more flat.
>GG friends always no necessarily hostile
Let me love you
Guilty Gear is supposed to be Metal; why is she wearing so much clothing?
>tfw I like GG and BB but a thread about either invariably ends up with shitposting about eachother.
This is like the Pokemon Movie, fellas. Remember this song? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEC7tPPKAXQ
Surely your inner child does, somewhere.
can we start off gg threads with shitposting the game kinda like how monster hunter threads do it but have actual discussion in it knowing its all in good humor?
Honestly, it breaks my heart to see this...
All these threads do is complain
If anyone actually wants to discuss GG in an optimistic fashion rather than whining about the polls, the new characters, or trying to piss on Blazblue; it usually dies on here. I love GG but the community on here is an embarrassment and while BB is usually waifu threads, at least they don't bitch. Jesus Christ, just chill out and have fun.
i think you're a cunt, it was relevant because he was directly responding to the dude complaining about japs with a counter-point: that most places have their own culture about these things
so stop being a cunt
Same. At the moment I'm just having more fun with Xrd than I was with CPE so I've been spending more time on GG. GG threads are almost always just bitching about characters; the new ones for pandering, the old ones for not being in yet, giving someone shit for who they decide to play, whatever.
>valentines that are nothing but fap bait over returning characters
Both GG and BB is dead.
sin is the only good one (even though he's not an xrd designed character).
sin is still on top. ram is cool. elphelt would be better if she wasn't so easy and good at the same time. jack-o is pretty unique but doesn't interest me. bedman and leo are shit.
The first game had a teenage girl in a pirate outfit and the second had as its final boss an aged-up three-year-old girl in a skintight suit that barely covers her tits.
You're a bit late to be complaining about fanservice in Guilty Gear.
For gg fans, they sure do talk a lot about fucking blazblue.
I can't believe we were so close to allowing this to happen. The abuse in system mechanics would have been great and I would love to see what people like ruu or mugen might have done.
Dizzy was a good choice though, she's classic and will probably end up taking a bit because she deforms and shit for some of her attacks like faust.
from a gameplay standpoint
sin > bedman > elphelt >>> ramlethal > leo
I have no clue where jack-o goes but they're trying something crazy with her summons and projectile bubble shield.
bedman > leo > ramlethal > elphelt > (jack-o with the mask on) > sin
he's great, don't know what the problem is
>You're a bit late to be complaining about fanservice in Guilty Gear.
It was never this extreme and abundant. This downward spiral started with BB and even in that series it just kept getting worse.
waifushitters and fujoshis are the only people who buy games nowadays so it makes since they would appeal to them more over actual players. Sad but true, deal with it or just drop the franchise.
>had this and BB thread opened at the same time
>accidentally posted Aba in BB thread
Fucked up big time.
This. Make peace with it and enjoy the gameplay part of the fighting game, or just leave. It isn't 100% about the characters. You probably wouldn't enjoy it as much if it was still the missing link, would you?
I think they are all pretty bad and that even something like Skullgirls with characters like Big Band would be a better fit for GG at this point.
Gameplay wise i only like Sin because he's a pokey-man and I like those.
I've been getting into fighting games recently, got GGXrd and BBCPE is coming tomorrow. GG doesn't seem to have the DLC characters it's supposed to have, and as far as I can see there's no confirmation it'll ever show up. Does CPE's EU version have any problems like that? Been enjoying guilty gear a lot but this is complete bullshit, actual false advertising.
>It was never this extreme
Oh yes it was if anything its toned down from the days of S&M gear on an innocent gear or short shorts and bandages homunculus girl or the perpetual walking chinese panty flash or trap nun.
yesterday and the day before that. gotta keep my xrd game strong because there's no other fighters worth playing atm.
I bum off a friend's ps3 and the last time I played Xrd was saturday. Hopefully he's not too busy this weekend and I could make a lobby if someone wanted. Other than that, I just kinda go to dustloop and watch match vids to keep up.
I have +R on 360 that I play sometimes, but online on that is literally dead.
How about you?
So are either of them getting patched? Is it unacceptably delayed or unacceptably cancelled? Bullshit either way but good to know.
And just to be clear, does that mean BB will have the same problem when it arrives?
GG AC reloaded midnight ++
I don't remember which one. Last one on PS2, 3 or so years back.
I don't like ARC business model at all. I might get Revelator, but I have no reason to get a PS4 and my PS3 is collecting dust.
The other way around for me. I cannot fathom anyone liking Jin at all, let alone Jin having anything against Ky. Ky is a much more complete character and unlike Jin his whole drive in the story isn't tied to the main character. Ky is a rival, a king, a father, a husband, a friend, a man fighting for and against his duties.
Yesterday. Not that anon, but >>315509427 pretty much hit it spot on. Actual gameplay discussion is pretty much drowned out by complaining or shitposting
Unlike BB, it seems that /v/ GGers can't embrace fanservice because they have to be "metal". My guess would be that most people in these threads have never actually played but just want to look cool talking about their god-tier games from two gens ago
I like him but fuck is he annoying to fight. I prefer Ky
Bedman > Sin > Ramlethal > Jack-O > Leo > Elphelt
I think what ails the GG community here in /v/ is just that we have an inferiority complex over BB being more popular.
I bet GG threads would be more popular if you fucking stopped coming up with BB or using BB as an insult to shit on new characters. The last thing we need is assholes pretending to hate shit on a series they like.
>Ky: Remember Sol, you have people like me, Sin, and Dizzy that care about you and welcome you here as a home and family waiting for you.
I cringed hard at those lines
It's cheesy, but it's true. Sol has been doing Ky a solid by being Sin's guardian and for saving his ass in Overture. Ky really worries about Sol because he knows that after That Man is iced, Sol will become a recluse or off himself. I cringed but it's also a reasonable piece of dialogue
Because Sol isn't as edgy as people make him out to be. He's lazy and aggressive, but he's still capable of caring and doing kind acts. Sol grew some degree of attachment to Elphelt due to her resemblance to Aria. Considering how she's cooperated with Mankind in order to stop the Conclave until the bitter end in which self control was taken from her, she would be on anybody's good side.
Precisely, because if anybody actually played the games, it would be clear that looks are deceiving. I've played a lot of Guilty Gear games and have looked into the story enough to know what is going on. Sol may be an asshole but he does it to keep emotionally distant from folks. He got fucked sideways centuries ago and he's not keen on reliving that.
El is like Celica. New bitch who makes the whole series revolve around her because she's a perfect waifu and you should all love her and how amazing she is and kind and shit. Japan eats this shit up so now they be the love interests for the protagonist and people buy the games more for there cutsy wubsy lovey disgusting,sicking, boring fucking interactions!
Daisuke and Mori have become shallow sellouts like the pieces of shit in charge of Tekken. Fuck Tengu, just give them a female version of him that's hot, Fuck actual characters, let's give them a vampire waifu and a fucking catgirl idol.
At least street fighter's only waifufag bull shit is just R.Mika. These other fuckers whave completely ruined their franchises by pandering to waifufaggots who don't even buy the games but draw porn of the character and jack off to their voice clips.
I'm not upset, just stating the truth.
I won't deny that El has me biting the barrel of a .45 in how sickening of a sweetheart she is. Daisuke most likely got the idea of El from listening to Use Your Illusion II because of the firearms and flowers shit plus the fucking "You Could Be Mine" on the front of her Bridal Gown. But, this is just Daisuke moving on and maturing, he did start Guilty Gear straight of high school so I'd imagine he's wanted to make changes. I wouldn't call it Waifufaggery until he calls it himself. I'll be honest, I can feel the new characters will improve. -Sign- was testing the waters for a drastic change and a return to an almost forgotten series. Give it a whirl. El's grown on me because I made the horrible mistake of making her the announcer and let that pound at my sanity.
1. Bedman, I love mecha
2. Ram is cool, both her appearance and gameplay
3. Sin transitioned well, special cancelling shit is fun
4. Abyssal Elph >>> Waifu Elph
5. Jack-o, Her playstyle seems interesting, her design isn't too bad
6. Ungaman, I don't the hair
I'm sure i read that correctly. You're have some favoritism for Chun-Li, Nina and the likes because you like them, but they're no less waifushit than the ones you're complaining about.
Noel gets nothing but insults thrown at her and is bullied by everyone. El and Celica are fawned over constantly, through Celica even more so. She's like Rose from TOZ or Lightning from FF13 or a light novel protagonist like Kirito and Onii-sama. Just constant ass kissing by the characters, by the narrative, by the creator themselves and by the japanese fanbase.
Again, she's been doing Mankind a solid by collaborating with Paradigm to put down the Conclave. She also kept Sol from getting dragged into the Backyard where he would have to kill Justice and be left there to rot on his own
She has a lot of hair under that hat.
so whats going on with blazblue story-wise? I know ragna/jin were way too similar to sol/ky, so im wondering if that new edgelord character is replacing ragna maybe.
Bridget is cute cute CUTE!
El's a token dorky character that acts as a form of comedic relief and she took the backseat throughout -Sign-, just being a dweeb to break up segments of story (Thank god, the Bedman vs. Gabriel fight was too insane to handle). I feel like she will be mildly important at best in the plot of Revelator. Surprisingly, she's actually not really seen that much from what I've seen.
But pee pee comes out of there!
GABRIEL BETTER GET IN OR I SHALL BEGIN A WINTER LONG RIOT OVER IT. AND WINTER LASTS REALLY REALLY REALLY LONG WHERE I LIVE
I actually start to think Gabriel will be nice addition to the cast. Not a waifu, not a pretty boy, not a valentine, series vet, has interesting design and I hope he'll get fun moveset.
He would have such immense potential and he's been a long time character. But, I must implore you to adjust your thought that any appealing female character added in is Waifubait. It's appalling to do that and only dumbasses on /v/ who can't handle girl characters do that.
>tfw one of probably 5 people outside of japan that doesn't care for traps but loved playing bridget
Should've just been a gril desu
Gabriel seems like the chill kind of guy who spars for fun and would hold back because this all in fun and to at least give the roster a chance. It makes sense and it would also explain why he can be beaten.
Well, I agree with you. I want to see Gabriel against the entire cast and I'd like to see his character fleshed out more. Destroying Chipp and him calling Chipp a hack of a president would be amazing.
At least the other dude fucked a 3 year old and had a son
I really like fighting games but i cant learn combos so I relay grapples and easy chars (and good timing input) lately play potemkin in gg xrd and sometimes beat really good fighters only with guts, lucky and pot massive damage
He's pretty damn tough, and I can think of one very good reason to play him.
Plus his theme sounds like livewire.
I don't know about the pretty boy thing since Sin is the only one who can be called that, the Valentine thing I might get but this whole complaint would be completely averted if Jack O' wasn't one.
It's gonna happen and I'm psyched for it.
10/10 I'm using this now for various things
This is somebodies wife and mother now. I can't even fap to her anymore because of this. It feels wrong. I wonder if Necro and Undine will still be around, it was weird how Dizzy was on screen but neither one of them popped up to have their little arguments.
Great, simple design that's very close to the Missing Link ones, awesome animations, interesting gimmick.
Living coat is pretty cool and it improves her design a lot. She's like a big, tasteful fuck you toward Mu. Those swords look weird though, I don't like katana-like guards. Her animations are pretty good and consistent in beast-like theme. Gimmick is ok.
Redesign is pretty good but I prefer the original, lack of clothing around chest bothers me for some reason, looks kinda cheap and usually I'm not a guy that complains about fanservice. Animations are both funny and cool. Her gimmick, or rather gimmicks, are retarded and need some serious adjusting. Nerfing one issue won't do
Pretty good design that's ruined by really shitty color scheme. I love purple but the one used for him is disgusting. He looks way better in some alt colors. Great original gimmick and very interesting ways of approaching opponent. Mediocre animations.
I don't have anything against his design expect for those shoes. His gimmick and animations are pretty boring, reversed O-Sol. Wow.
The hair/mantle thing is pretty cool but other than that he's very bland and kinda cliche. Gimmick is pretty bad and a bit too straightforward. Funny animations but that's it.
I guess they are maybe she keep them dormant or something.
>but I prefer the original
Finally somebody with good taste itt.
Well, you're lucky enough for somebody who's at least okay with El in these threads. /v/ hates her with a passion because of no particularly good reason except she's stronk. I'm in the same boat really even though I begrudgingly like El and only defend her here.
A lot of the characters point out how obvious it is that Sol is holding back if they beat him.
Also when he activates his instant kill he's like "let's dial this up to 50 percent!"
I like her goofy mask alot but alot of fan artists just don't seem to get that that's part of her appeal. LOVE THAT FUCKING MASK NEGRO
reminds me of my waifu taokaka
i aint fucking played this game anyways though nigga. will it be worth waiting until revelator to pick this shit up?
Except she's not that weak during defense thanks to great normals.
Shotgun fucks over most air approaches and if anything goes wrong, unlike Leo, she can still block and use specials.
Reloads aren't that hard, especially when you play on level where her strong points become blatantly visible
Her dead angle is great.
Everyone's gameplan is matchup reliant
Slayer has beaten Order Sol, but has stated he wants to fight Sol at full power just to see what's what.
I believe Dragon Install is 25%? It's why in BB, his Xrd instakill, he doesn't need to activate Junkyard Dog's connection to the Backyard.
Because he's got 2 fucking huge fans that he uses to beat the fuck out of people with, I mean holy shit only a fag wouldn't want to play as him
I mean just look at this shit
SF games always had sexual icons. It was Chun Li and Cammy before Mika ever came around.
And the Valentines story was handled far better than anything in old GG. You keep spouting 'waifu' but the Valentines were treated pretty seriously.
I welcome our new butt overlord
They're seriously not even trying anymore. GG is just plain pandering now.
Can't wait for the 5 other Valentine waifu characters over returning classic ones.
>but BlazBlue is infinitely superior faggot
While GG is indeed spiraling downwards, it hasn't reached the putrid pits BB resides at yet.
>complains about new characters directly aimed at pandering to people into ecchi being introduced over returning characters
>"lol gg is no different"
Japanese game panders to japanese tastes. Be happy there aren't any fucking idols and shit like there is in Tekkan now. Faceless old bald men? Fuck you,too Tekkan Creator, You're just Street Figher's left over casual juggling shit, Who the fuck are you to get so cocky at people not liking your waifu? How about you man up and just say you'll keep your faggy series in Japan then?
I think that was fixed in final build, that webm is from when they just showed Sin and Elph.
Zato's butt clips through his belt all the time
Fucking this, more artwork needs the mask on.
And I would considering the existing characters haven't gone through that many changes and it's good for getting up to speed if you feel like you need to, all that's really missing in SIGN is throw techs, dust overdrives, and a new reversal blitz move.
I hope there will be an option for sign elphelt that isn't DLC.
Elphelt's hitboxes are mai waifu
>the fan requested returning character is THE ecchi porn bug zapper
>the second is fucking bridget
>the third is baiken's baikens
Nips gonna nip, can't change that.
>Millia's first design
I like how they based Axl's Xrd design on the first game.
THAT'S WHAT I LIKE TO SEE
ALL RISE FOR THE HONORABLE PRESIDENT OF ZEPP, THE HYPE MASTER GENERAL, THE GRAND-MUSCLE-WIZARD AND CASTER OF FISTS
They even based his theme in Xrd off his GG1 theme
coincidentally it's the best character theme in Xrd
>Married a 3 year old
>Has a kid
>Has a cool rival
>Doesn't want to be fucked by his brother because he was a war orphan
>Joined the army as a kid
is a gear now
>Actually changed his personality once he realized his faults while Jin is still an asshole to everyone but Tsubaki
>Ky won't die a virgin
????? Outside of Hakuman Jin doesn't have nothing.
>what if we took guilty gear
>and turned it into blazblue
>but with some guilty gear characters
