Why does this warrant a Mad as Hell smiley? Isn't a new BlazBlue a good thing?


When all else fails, blame the casuals!

It was the only smiley for the job.

I play BlazBlue, but I'm fully convinced that Street Fighter is the better game. CS seems like it will drastically change how the game is played, which is good because the old one was pretty mindless. At the same time, the amount of revamping they did is somewhat unsettling and makes me lose faith in the developer's confidence.

In other words, I believe CS will be a different game with different problems to replace the ones found in the fixed from the first game. I will probably still play it though.

Heh, I'm actually convinced that BlazBlue is the better game. But ay, preferences, etc.

I'm sure they are balancing characters more this time around, but I don't know of any add-ons to the game play itself. I'm fine with that though, especially at a $40 price tag.

From what I can tell (through tournament videos and what not) the game is still as imbalanced as before, just with re-arranged tiers. That doesn't concern me, however. What concerns me is that the game still seems to be grounded in the same mindless rush-down roots as the first. Likewise, the 5-frame buffer is still in, and auto-instant guarding was added in as well (though it will likely see little use).

BB just seems like an overly dumbed down series. The only reason I enjoy it is because I like Carl as a character. That being said, I'd probably prefer playing Melty Blood: Actress Again (which contains two characters similar to Carl), but Melty Blood AA is only available on the PS2 (would prefer being able to use my TE), has no online support, and I know I wouldn't be able to find anyone local to play with.

He used to, about a year-and-a-half ago. Now he's all about Street Fighter.

My friend has been telling me to get it

Is there a good comparison you could suggest?

I've played Soulcal, Street Fighter, MVC2, and Tekken

It's most similar to MvC2, but a better comparison would be Guilty Gear or a Doujin game like Melty Blood.

If you want to see what it's like, you could always look up videos, you know.

I see, he doesn't like the concept of jumping being a good thing.

I don't get why SF people hate BB, it has footsies, pokes and zoning in tact with the game and even it's equivalent of Sagat, a projectile spamming high priority son of a bitch.

I don't know, I think they just feel threatened by another Fighting game franchise.
You know how us competitive players hate each other because we don't all play the same game.

Meh, the new BB will be good for a short time, but I think it'll grow stale really quickly. Sure, there's a couple new characters and some changes to each character, but after we all adjust to it it'll basically be the same game again.

Footsies and Zoning are, without a doubt, less of an emphasis in BB than they are in SF. More importantly, the mind-games aspect of BB is severely less important than it is in SF. That's pretty much the sole reason as to why I prefer Street Fighter IV. You need to play smarter.

Check out my sig bro. I play BB. In fact, just a few weeks ago I went to a Fighting Game tournament, and I placed 3rd in BB and about 8th in SF. I play them both. However, I prefer Street Fighter. I think it's the better game. It's harder to play both mentally and executionally.

If I can place 3rd in BB, beat out-of-state players, dominate local heavyweights, and do all of this without having played the game for over 3 months, it's because the game isn't smart. That's how I see it. I still think the game is fun, and I'll play anyone anytime on XBOX Live (and have a blast doing so), but I find SF matches a lot more engaging for various reasons.
