    A new game from the guys who did Guilty Gear, Blazblue Calamity Trigger

    IGN: BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger (Standard Edition) Review

    I actually amaze with this game, the graphic is smooth and beautiful. Its a long time since I've played a 2D fighting game. I have to look out for this game.

    So what are you guy's opinion of this game?

    It seems less gender-bending than Guilty Gear.
    I'm prolly getting it.
    Not gonna run right out and buy it the first minute, but I'll get it.

    I'll probably get it.

    I'm not a huge fighting game fan, but a lot of the character designs catch my eye.

    9.4 review score? wow.

    I figured this would end up being a cheap ko of guilty gear, with just similar styled graphics but not much else. I might have to check this out though. But it'll have to be after kof xii

    I really used to love 2D fighters a couple of years back: Samurai Showdown, KOF, SF:Alpha etc. But haven't really played any of the new stuff like Guilty Gears. But I've been keeping an eye on this, the animation style really sticks out, especially some of the back grounds. Probably rent it first and buy it when the price goes down.

    If you buy it now, you get a Blue-Ray tutorial disc which goes over the mechanics and how to really get into the game.

    I advise doing this, the price will stay at $60 through the end of the year and only this first run has the bonus material.

    (also, 2 discs of game music)

    You're aware it's made by the same guys who actually made Guilty Gear, right?

    In any case, it plays a lot like Guilty Gear because it's their spiritual successor to Guity Gear. There's some legal issues involving the Guilty Gear franchice so they essentially said 'Hell with it, we're making a new property'.

    And for those that havent seen them yet...every Astral Finish in the game. Ya know, I wasnt going to use Bang, but that finish is TO DAMN EPIC for me to pass him up.

    Eh, maybe it's just me, or I've been spoiled by a certain other 2D fighter, but it just looks cheap compared to SFIV. Easy pass.

    I'd love a Mega Man/X fighting game in this style.

    Any "Bridgets" in this game?

    That creepy cat girl seems highly suspect.

    No, you can fap in confidence that there are no bait and switches this time.
