Summary: Once you have put time into " Blazblue: Continuum Shift " you can see why the series has gained such popularity worldwide thanks to the surprisingly deep combat and the excellent range of game modes.
Excerpt: "Boing! Boing! Boing! Your boobies are still the best!" she trills, in her high-pitched sing-song voice. "Hmmm, boobie lady, you seem kinda down! Everything but your boobies is sagging!" It took me a while to realise it was happening, but over the past few days I've been slowly falling in love with Taokaka. It's a bit odd, because to be perfectly honest, I'm not even that sure what she is.
Summary: : BlazBlue is very impressive and a good bit of fun for experienced players or fans of fighting games in general, but neophyte fighting game fans and anyone who shies away from Guilty Gear in general may find it to be a bit too impenetrable to get into. The game is both visually and aurally impressive, if a bit too “loud”Â� at times, and there’s a sizable amount of non-character related content in the game.
Excerpt: I consider myself to be pretty knowledgeable about video games, but I’ve got to admit - -I’ve only just heard of the BlazBlue series. Hell, until a friend corrected me, I pronounced it as “ blaze-blue,” cause you know, that’s logical and all. Imagine my surprise then when I finally got my hands on the franchises’ latest installment BlazBlue: Continuum Shift for the Xbox 360 and PS3 and really dug it.
Excerpt: Last year, the deep and wild 2D fighting of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger made the game a favorite among those who like their characters crazy and their action complex. BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is more of a refinement of the original game than a full-fledged sequel. It introduces some great new modes that make the action more accessible to newcomers, and the new characters and balancing refinements ensure that this is the version of BlazBlue you should own.
Pros: Terrific roster with incredibly varied characters, Very deep fighting mechanics, Beautiful and distinctive visuals, New Tutorial and Challenge modes make the action more accessible, Great online competition
Cons: Still daunting and difficult for newcomers, Weak storytelling, Only three new characters
Excerpt: I loved BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger and even though it was the weirdest most absurd fighter, it had charm, gameplay and a story to die for... in terms of anime. Yes my dear gamers, fighters didn't have to revolve around the Tekken or Street Fighter universes and other developers could create equally engaging games.
Excerpt: As some may know, Arc System, otherwise known as Aksys, recently released their newest 2-D fighting game, Blazblue . The game is similar to their previous hit series Guilty Gear, both in game play and characters (some are almost clones of some of the Guilty Gear cast), but there are some noticeable differences.
