    Do you guys still play Guilty Gear occasionally up there? Once Xrd hits, are you Edmonton guys gonna go hard on that game, or do you think it'll be more like a passing fad like P4U, UNIEL, etc.

    We can at least netplay, right? :(

    Guilty gear is on hiatus atm. Alvin and I play it now and then but everyone is pretty dedicated to UNIEL.

    I for one plan on going in hard for xrd (Have my eyes set on learning Ramlethal along with relearning Faust and Millia). Pretty sure Alvin will also. I know a few others are interested in learning Xrd so cant say for sure how many players we will have. I think UNIEL will end up coexisting with Xrd when it drops up here since they are so different from each other.

    Also, hook me up with your PSN Teyah, I dont think I have you on my list.

    Ah that's good to hear, hope others in the scene pick it up too. All 3 of your characters are really solid picks. I'll PM you my PSN though I'm hardly ever on, but that'll change once Xrd hits.

    Edmonton has expressed interest in learning Guilty Gear (they still do) and we managed to get 18-19 people for a AC+R ranbat one night. I was going to spend a night to teach people the mechanics of AC+R but that fell through due to that ranbat. lol UNIEL dropped that week as well and everyone started getting into the game surprisingly. The game picked up a lot of steam so the player base here decided it was better to wait until Xrd drops before getting into GG. I can understand people wanting to wait for Xrd because outside of GG fundamentals not a lot of aspects in AC+R carry over to Xrd. It would be hard to get people into the game and learn the specific mechanics to AC+R only to have to forget about them in Xrd. It would also be difficult to learn two drastically different fighting games at the same time when they're not use to this sub-genre of fighting games.

    I'm definitely going in hard when GGXrd comes out and will probably main Ky and sub Ramlethal for the Eddie/Faust/Millia match ups. A friend and I are planning to do video content on Xrd when it comes out so I'm hoping the game gains a lot of traction in the general FGC. I'm down for net play any time provided the net code is actually playable. What system were you getting Xrd for and did you figure out the PS4 stick situation? There was so much shit going on when you released all of that PCB lag data. lolol

    I'm still down to play Guilty Gear whenever. The only reason there's no guilty gear ranbat every week is we have no hope of doing 4 games in one night.

    Sweet. I'll be playing on PS4 unless the PS4/PS3 cross play ends up being really shitty in which case I'll play on PS3, since most everyone else will be on PS3. I think Les will also have it on PS4 too. I'll have it on both though.

    For PS4 sticks we're just waiting / praying for new sticks to be announced by Xrd's release. Mad Catz will probably lag again and I'm not a fan of the Hori form factor used in their HRAP v4. Also Vewlix on both, ugh

    I ended up picking it up for both ps3 and ps4 just incase (both 3 day express delivery lol). As well, the place we all gather to play only has Xbox 360 and PS3 so I would need a ps3 copy anyways.

    Im hoping there will be a solid ps4 stick out soon as well. I pretty much bought a ps4 just for Xrd lol

    Much of AC+R will translate over to Xrd. If folks want to seriously get into Xrd, doesn't hurt to play AC+R.
