So does that mean Guilty Gear's story sucks as well?

4tell0life4 And what I meant by my post is, GG story being the same too, but less get shit on because of it well...being GG.

While BB just got many haters (not of story, but in every aspect, like for example DBX) due to it being anime or something.

Well, it's also just that most Visual Novels are a failure in West, and BB has type of that. Any type of story in VN, you still have to, um, read (a nerd activity).

GG has a more western influence and an older demographic which makes it much more accepting to the older fans of the FGC.

[up] While, yeah, BB is as anime as it comes.

Not only that in general they seem to just Accentuate the Negative most aspect of BB. NOTE: Those are comments recounted by BB fans about other FGC community, not actual other community shit on BB.

  • "BB got progressively more 'anime', with removed the dub making it JP voices only!" When GG rarely had any dub work to begin with, that isn't exactly a great argument.
  • "BB has a lot more "girly/cutesy sex pandering shit", but for GG "At least our sex icons don't look underage enough to have Chris Hansen on our asses", "Gay for Bridget is only a joke".
  • "Those who like BB are pedophiles or some shit", ignoring May/underage Dizzy.
  • "I hate Ramlethal and Elphelt cuz they are too BB, what with how waifu she looks", "If it's Jam/I-No/Baiken/A.B.A it's okay"
  • (CT-CS) "BB has one of most fanservice-y designs for females!" when SF has more skimpy designs in their female roster on average (nevermind the fact that for the larger part of street fighter's history it's art style was very much gasp anime-inspired!) compared to BB which honestly had LESS overt fanservice stuff up until CS's DLC. (aside from Mu, Makoto, and Litchi, and Litchi is still more tastefully than the norm)
    • Starting with CP it's not like current GG isn't equal in that regard anyway, like the above mentioned Jam/I-No/Baiken/etc.
  • "BB has ripoffs like Ragna and Jin to Dante and Vergil!" when SF clearly admitted they ripped (or better term, homage) some designs from others like from Jojo (Rose to Lisa Lisa, Guile to von Stroheim, Juri to Jolyne), etc.

So it seems Accentuating the Negative for story like Chris X above said is just natural from all of that. It seems that the only way to make a good fighting game right now is time travel back to the past and release it in same time period as SF.

Excuse me, I've got a question for you guys.

So I'm not a particularly great fan of fighting games, but I've been interested in this series for a while, and the other day the games were at a discount on Steam, so I bought the first two and installed Calamity Trigger. I have no idea how to play, though, and I haven't found a tutorial anywhere. Is there one I'm not finding, or some way I can get to grips with the controls anywhere? I've played Skullgirls before, for example, and that game had a fun little tutorial that helped me out a lot, so I was hoping there'd be something like it here too.

Apr 18th 2019 at 1:27:29 AM

BlazBlue Continuum Shift (2nd game) onwards has a deep tutorial though. I think don't install BBCT, unless you want to follow story from the beginning.

The game is over 5 years old, in depth tutorials weren't really a thing yet.

Since you said you're not a fan of fighting games, you could just use Stylish mode which eliminates the need to really learn anything.

Stylish mode isnt on calamity trigger.

There were a bunch of tutorials made that should still be up on youtube, one of which is voiced by Mike Z himself. Just type in " X CT tutorial" and they should pop up.

How to figure out when fights in story are Curb-Stomp Battle or not? Typically it's shown by the winner with attack/default story portrait, and loser with injured portrait.

But some of them are considered Curb-Stomp Battle (CP End Ragna vs Nu), and some others aren't (CT Noel vs Tager).

Okay so for you guys with PS+, you can essentially buy central fiction AND Rev 2 together for just under 30 bucks. Nice deal.

Sorry mighty <_< EU got the short end of the stick. I think some of the older neo geo games are on sell though?

I actually bought Jubei like right away. As someone who started BB back when it first came out as CT, I've waited years for this guy. And I wasn't going to settled for a watered down CTB take. I want the real deal.

Who do you think is the most liked character of BB (after CF)?

Vertigo_High Touch The Sky

Jin and/or Hazama, with Ragna running behind.

I've been playing CF a lot, moreso than Rev 2 despite buying both at the same time. I think CF has better single player content which could be why, plus I hate how Rev 2's arcade mode nerfs the difficulty arbitrarily. SO ANNOYING.

I've been trying to do act 1 arcade with everyone and it took me an entire hour to beat it with Rachel :/ Usually Nine would take me no more than 2 tries(even carl took only 2 tries) but it took like 5 with her. I think Rachel might be my worst character.

Jubei doesn't have an act 1 really and I'm not sure if izanami does either. Only one left is Nine herself.

I might buy Es and Mai, as I am kinda tempted and get paid this week anyway. Really everyone in CF is pretty fun.

Oh and what is FUBAR(I'm guessing effed up beyond all repair?) and why is Nine saying it? That felt like something dub Makoto would say but it was a bit weird coming from Nine. I'm also noticing some inconsistencies in the library mode, like referring to Relius as a captain when he is a colonel.

Also man I missed Hazama/Terumi. Dude(s) hilarious.

@Vertigo_High "Jin/Hazama with Ragna coming behind" you meant for them as characters, or as in gameplay (aka function)?

I still feel that CF is rushed, single player content feels lacking to previous ones like BBCPEX.

Do you mean for Nine's FUBAR as in, Amaterasu Unit's problem? The Origin abuses Amaterasu Unit for her amusement, rewinding time everytime Ragna dies (or was about too), preventing the world from progressing forward, which is the simple reason why CT has 70k+ loops going on, repeating every suffering Nine, her family, loved ones, and just everyone going through

In popularity, Jin, Hazama are like the most popular and Ragna is somewhere behind them. Noel and Rachel are probably up there too.

Nine says FUBAR for her win quote against Hazama. I have no idea what it means.
