    Can’t wait for my copy to arrive on Friday. I’ll be uploading some videos, but unfortunately… I’ll have to stay away from uploading story videos since those usually lead to copyright strikes and I’d rather not take that risk. So, I’ll probably just post challenge, versus, and online stuff mostly.

    • kirby755

      I’ll have to see those videos when you post them and seeing that you are receiving it on Friday makes me sad and jealous, if only I didn’t have such a crappy budget, but ohh well. Still Looking forward to seeing the videos.

        Well, I always get Next Day Air shipping on my imports, so they always arrive a day after they come out in Japan :p. Sure, I have to spend about $15 in shipping, but meh… I’m already having to spend about $90 or more on each import, so what’s another $15 more, right?

        • kirby755

          Yea when a game like Blazblue comes its worth it.

    • Blizzaja

      I’m happy just if I see some Hazama game-play!

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        I couldn’t play Trollzama for shit, lol. Then again… I was still a pad player back then. Since this will be the first time I’ll be playing BB on stick, I guess I could give him another shot. It will be a whole new learning experience for me.

        • Blizzaja

          I think anyone could be good with any character just if they use them for long enough and do a lot of practice. I choose my characters from how they look, act and how much damage they can do.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            That’s not entirely true. It may seem that way on paper, but yeah… There are people that can never play grapple characters because of all the 360, 720 and 1080 motions, then there are people that can’t play the charge characters (see: Guile, Vega, Balrog, etc.). Hell, I’ve met some players that were more comfortable with all of the stuff I said above, but found 236/QCF motions to be insane, lol.

            Different strokes for different folks and all that jazz.

            • Blizzaja

              We all have different play styles and preferences, but I just like the fact that characters like Hazama are really fast and can damage you hard if you let him.

    • Budgiecat

      I dropped this series as soon as the real ASW fighting game was announced:

      Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign..

      This was just filler…yo

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Funny. This filler turned out to be more successful than Guilty Gear ever was and now Xrd will just be BlazBlue 2.0 with fancy graphics, lol. This filler sure did last a loooooooooooong time though.

        • Budgiecat

          Derp derp because people were aking for an HD ASW fighting game a duhhhhhhhhh

          • Guest

            Those “people” don’t know how graphics work, lol. BlazBlue is already using HD sprites, yo.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        idiots really do spit shit out their mouth lol.

        • Budgiecat

          Don’t say that about TetsuyaHikari. He’s my friend.

          Unless you were talking about yourself, to which I say don’t say that either; that’s self depreciating. You’re better than that.

        • Blizzaja

          Please try to refrain from feeding the trolls.

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    So who’s watching Alter Memory? Anyone? (c’mon I know someone is just for Nu-13)

    • Blizzaja

      I am! Just finished watching episode 3!

      • gangrelion

        It’s good but I am feeling that I would not like if I wasn’t a fan of the original game. I think it shows the plot in a very confusing and unattractive manner. The fight scenes could be way better (specially the ones with Noel). I think they should have started with more explanation about what the hell is happening in that world. A little introduction about the black beast against the great heroes could do wonders and explain a lot, a little bit about ragna’s past would be good as well. After that they could start the part in kagutsuchi. It sounds big, but it’s just a introduction, a fast narration with some images should’ve been enough.

        • Blizzaja

          Well I actually never played the games, I just am really interested in them. I read a lot and seen a lot of it. I didn’t know BlazBlue even existed till this year started.

        • Blizzaja

          From how much I read and seen you could say I played the games already, but I still want to play them.

        • Budgiecat

          Agreed

    • kirby755

      I am watching as well and still loving how it presents the games story. I mean they have already moved from Calamity trigger to Continuum shift. Also I love how they play the Calamity Trigger song in today’s episode.

    • Eclipse

      Haha, I’d definitely watch Alter Memory just for Nu-13 <3

      I'm currently occupied with so many of the anime from this Fall season, so I'll wait for it to finish airing and then marathon it in one go.

    • Sevyne

      I’m watching it and it’s been pretty good. My only issue so far is that it’s moving way too fast. That probably has to do with the fact that it seems to be ignoring most of the cast and their branches. I mean, they just plowed through Calamity Trigger in 2 episodes.

      Anyway, yes <3 Nu-13.

      • Budgiecat

        Exactly. It’s stupid

  • fireemblembeast

    That was awesome *_*
    And it would have been even more awesome if an ad for a nexus tablet hadn’t shown up!!! >:0

  • gangrelion

    Most of the scenes are cool, but when they begin to fight it seems like they are taking a walk in the park, there is no energy. And why nobody is able to animate a decent fighting scene with Noel? She fights with the same style from that Equilibrium movie, it should be crazy awesome, but all she does in those anime openings is point her gun and shoot!

      The problem is that the intro is too long. It’s really only there for the song, and they end up dragging out the animation, which really hurts the impact. They should really keep it short and simple, and leave the details of the fighting to the imagination. ArcSys still hasn’t topped Guilty Gear XX’s intro, which is kind of disappointing.

    Y u no ship earlier Nippon-yasan. Can’t wait to rock out with Terumi and Jin~.

    • Blizzaja

      Terumi FTW!

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Just got a notification this morning that CDJapan shipped my copy out. I still don’t know who I’m going to use yet though, haha. Ahhhh… I’m actually kind of leaning towards Tao I guess!

      I can’t ignore that delicious golden brown skin any longer~

  • Daniel Guerrero

    damn and i stiil have watched episode 3 from the anime

  • Elvick

    God I wish it were on Vita too. ):

    Is there a LE?

    • kirby755

      Give it moment. I’m pretty sure that it will be on Vita. Blazblue continuum shift was and Blazblue calamity trigger is available through the psp section in the psn store.

    As i thought, Terumi is hype as ****.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Yeah, here was a match uploaded a couple of days ago showing these characters too.

      Damn.. the only thing that had me rolling was that laughter. I think the troll level with Terumi is going to be very fun. lol especially that stomp…

  • fireemblembeast

    I like the animation art in this much more than in cs extend’s opening. The song is better too IMO

  • TheBlackRabbit

    Ahhhhhh…..haaaaaa……finally……..o////o litchi…noel plz

  • ayb91
