    Is it just me or is XRD slightly less grungy in tone than the previous guilty gears? I feel the series has gradually lost that deathly hardcore punk aesthetic and become less hardcore and more "sweet". It's still beautiful and has a rock vibe but I just feel it lacks that grunge anime aesthetic I always loved about the series. No more hell stage while rocking out to A solitude that asks nothing in return vibes
    It's definitely gotten less grungy and more sweet. I get that they wanted to unify the artstyle, but a big part of this is character select/portraits looking really bright and clean. In Revelator they even changed the shading on the art so it would look darker, but it still looks too clean. Ishiwatari should do the art for those again, they looked great. Not just that, but there's a lack of creepy or at least dark looking characters. Accent Core you had Zappa, Testament, Eddie, and ABA. This game you have Raven, and kind of Zato but not really since he's a nice dude and not a manic body snatching shadow attached to a corpse.

    Actually no, it is why they scrapped the model that they were using for BBCS to BBCSII.
    Just because you would prefer it like that, it doesn't mean hat the majority does.

    With BBCSII, ASW discovered definitively that players don't want to have an upgrade OPTION, and always want to pay full retail price for every update?

    They gave for free the BBCSII update but sold the new chars.
    Everyone keep saying that they will wait for the next revision to get them.
    The rest is history as they say.

    Bro, that's because every year was a new update.

    Lol wut
    BBCS was the 1st update, after 1 1/2 year after BBCT, the 1st one.
    Like i said already, only 2 BB had DLC chars, BBCS and BBCP, and each one had around 1.5 to 2 years between each other, stop with the stupid bullshit.
    The only BB that have been released one after each other have been BBCT to BBCS, after that each one of them have a Persona game and or Guilty Gear between them.
    the rest of the stupid nonsense
    LOL

    I mean, GG didn't start out that grungy. It was honestly more Guns and Roses and Aerosmith than Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Arena and Hard Rock bordering on metal really.

    Don't be calling my post stupid without addressing how fucking bad you are at math.

    Continuum Shift II was released in Arcades in December 2010. Oh hey, another year. Continuum Shift EXTEND (your wallets to us) was released in September 2011 (less than a year!)

    Chrono Phantasma was released in November 2012. Still no year and a half. The only one you come even remotely close on is Chrono Phantasma EXTEND (Your wallets to us) being released in 2014.

    But hey, they got back on track and had Central Fiction in October 2015, a full year after EXTEND (your wallets to us) came out.

    You being 16% right doesn't make me 100% wrong. It just makes you 100% not an actuary.

    I hate how this turned into a Capcom vs ASW thread.

    It's not as much a battle of gameplay engines and mechanics as it is some blatant displays of hypocrisy in this thread.

    I find it mind boggling how some people justify ArcSys' blatant cash-grab practices hiding behind the game's quality while ArcSys literally reaches out into their pockets every year or so while everyone keeps jacking off to their games. How is this NOT the definition of an oblivious fanboy and yet they feel that they're ABOVE the rest of the "Capcom drones who buy the same SF game every year and drop millions in DLC"? GTFO with that logic.

    By far the STUPIDEST thing I've read in this topic was the whole "OH WUT YOU GOT NO MONEY? THEN DON'T BUY THE GAME SCRUB LOLOLOLOL". Like seriously, WTF? We elite now all up in this bitch?

    I really have nothing against Revelator, it does look like a sweet game and it has some pretty nice additions. MY concern is that I don't want to buy this game next year and then be like "GG Xrd Accelerator coming this summer!" and then drop Revelator like a bad habit. If Capcom had released this game AS IT IS without changing ANYTHING under their banner, don't tell me there would be 172383293902010 angry fuckers spitting out the same old shit "SAME OLD CAPCOM" "DLC IN DISC OMG LOLOLOL" "WHEN IS GG ULTRA SUPER HYPER EDITION?"

    If you ignore the conspiracy theory, the initial point made was that Revelator was not featured on SRK's news section upon release. Regardless of the reasons, I think that was wrong. I haven't seen a clear legitimate reason from anybody as to why that was the case.

    People mention Dustloop not having it on their front page, but they're not a news site. SRK claims to be, yet there was nothing.

    Is this a site for Capcom fans only? Or a site for the FGC as a whole?

    It's June 15th and Gamespot and IGN still have not reviewed this game. conspiracy? You betcha. Xrd Sign didn't have this problem.
    I remember when people thought Bison doing the psycho crusher back and forth across the screen in SF:CE was cheap.

    I certainly wouldn't/don't feel that way. And I don't see how "DLC IN DISC" has anything to do with what you're talking about. The attitudes you're describing really only came about during SFIV's popularity. The mainstream audience that IV brought in wasn't used to how fighting games work, so, they complained. The GG people are in general not like that because we know exactly what we want and how much work goes into a fighting game. Not once did I complain about Capcom's methods, except in SFxT where that was just blatant nickel and dime-ing with the gems and whatnot.

    I'm not happy with V as it is, but I also know that they've SAID they want to stick with just one title and update it, so I don't feel as gypped as I would if they had planned on releasing a more complete game a year later. Another thing to note is its actually been a year and a half since Xrd came out, not just one year. True, they announced Revelator about a year after Xrds release (console version, 1.5 years after the arcade), but the market moves more quickly than it used to. All of the older GG games had ~2 years between releases.

    I'm going to explain this to you. It's rather easy to understand. Thing is, people will take being fucked over if the product is good enough. See: GGXrdR. Now, if you get a bare bones product that leaves much to be desired, people will get mad. See: SFV. That is what causes this divide. Yes, they're full of shit and are hypocrites.
    Has anyone thanked you today for not setting the whole world on fire?

    They should. I won't. I advocate setting the world on fire. But morons who actually like it, benefit from society, would do well to thank you and men like you for not visiting hell upon them.

    But if a product is "good enough", then it's not really getting "fucked over".

    It's a fighting game release, it should've been there as a heads up. It slipped through the cracks obviously, and once we knew, we were already well beyond the window of posting it. I had no idea on the timeline on the release or I would've written it up myself. If you think something may get lost in static or isn't getting through the tipline, you guys can always tweet or DM me with new tips and I'll grab it so long as I'm available.

    shit

    The amount of changes that Revelator has over Sign is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more than a simple little polish.



    Also, by the time that SFV releases the 2nd season or whatver the cost of the game will be around 120 (if you buy the season passes) so the comparassion is more than moot.
    It always amaze me how fucking cheap are most of the people on this site.

    in the most cases i like the old version more.
    is there a option to switch between these modes or are you stuck with the new version?

    GG's always had more of an "edge" than the typical "anime fighter" that you get out of a Melty Blood/AH type deal.

    They have the best female character designs as well. Iconic TBH. All strong willed females, no damsels in distress of anime pop waifu airheads.

    Plus, rock music.

    Melty Blood assumes you've read the Type Moon visual novels and the various media adaptations prior to playing the video games.

    Lol anime story.

    Anyway, I've certainly been having a lot more fun with Xrd Rev than SFV. I didn't think I would like it all that much so I didn't plan on buying it, but I won a copy for free in a raffle and now I can agree that Xrd had more content in its tutorial than SFV had at launch.
