Guilty Gear Accent Core Plus, and other stuff

Woot, looks like I was wrong in my last post, that is a good thing too!  Turns out Accent Core plus version is infact coming to the states! The release date is set for Spring of 2009 which is just around the corner.  I have not seen a confirmed date yet however.  It’s coming out on the ps2 again and the PSP, well ok the Wii too but it would be akward to play on the Wii.  I just recently managed to get a hold of a PSP myself finally, I had to trade in a lot of old junk.  I picked up Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth with it, I have not gotten far in it so I can’t really give my thoughts on it just yet.  Despite that I’m still getting it on my old boxy version of my PS2, can’t beat a controller for a fighter game.

While doing a little searching for some random Accent Core Plus material, as I can’t wait for it, I found out about another Arc System works game in the making: Blazblue.  I don’t know too much about the game now but it looks realy cool.  I keep hearing rumors that it is gonna be PS3 exclusive.  While they alone are just probably rumors, started by some random people who are PS3 fans and think they should only get it, that still kinda worries me.  I do not want to have to buy a PS3, but Blazblue just looked so neat.  From the looks of it a console port is still a ways off for Japan, so even further away for even the remote chance it hits state side. One can dream though..

I found out that in a few months Arcana Heart 2 port is going to be on the Japanese PS2.  I can only hope that it soon follows over here to America. I really liked the first one, I still play it from time to time.


Unrelated news:  I am almost done watching Chrono Crusade, I pick up an episode here and there. I just have been doing a lot of other things so my Anime time is cut into.  School and work count, but I guess playing too much WoW isent a good enough excuse for less Anime huh?

Oh and I went today wearing only a single contact in my eye, thats fun, but not really.  Random much?


Arcana Heart + Guilty Gear Accent Core = Awesome

I finally decided to shell out the cash to get Accent Core, as I lost hope of the Plus version coming to the states. While I was at Amazon (could get it cheaper there) I noticed a suggested title was Arcana Heart. A while ago I saw an X Play preview of it online and thought it was pretty neat.  How can you beat an all female anime fighter game with awesome looking powers?  I hesitated getting both cause at first shipping was gonna cost me together with the games about 71 dollars.  I have a job but 71 dollars.. eh.  Turns out I did a free trial or something and I got both for 58 free two day shipping. Go me!

Games are coming this wednesday!  I’m gonna steal the PS2 out of the living room and play them in my room, maybe I can rig something up to record them and put it on youtube and this blog.  Time to get searching through my closet full of computer junk!

In more unrelated news like last time, spam keeps on coming!  I gotta tell ya, I have not been on WordPress that long but the spam ads on this site are.. unique.  The last one was titled Gas Mask, with the comment: “Ugliness is in the way of true beauty because it blocks it” then some other stuff.  While amusing to quickly read these, I’m getting annoyed of the amount of spam I actually get for being a small blog.  Oh well at least Akismet is catching it all.

Latest Obsession: Guilty Gear X2

Two months ago, my friends Xbox 360 finally died out after slowly gaining more problems with it.  CD drive wouldn’t open, red rings of death 50% of the time you start it, slower speeds, crashing, etc etc. So until he got the money for a new one he has been playing old games.  Going over his house he just so happened to have the older Xbox hooked up and was playing an interesting fighting game.  Fighting games have always been one of my top favorite genre’s for video games, and If I may say so, I am pretty good at em.  So any way I watched him play this fighting game, which was titled Guilty Gear X2 #Reload.  Other then the Guilty Gear name, I knew nothing of the series.  The Anime-ish graphics had me interested though, as you can tell from my other blog posts and banners, I like Anime!

I played a few characters to find that perfect one just for me as I grew increasingly interested.  Being a guy I was naturally drawn towards picking a female character. It’s built into most guy’s DNA at birth, can’t help it.  I will admit however I did like Sol Badguy and Testament.  I did start to like Bridget thinking she was kinda neat using a yo yo and the goofy bear.  But however.. my friend decided to let me on the secret when I said “Whats with her using a yo yo though?”



Learning this made me stop and think for a moment, I didn’t believe it at first.  Never the less I checked out more characters, despite the whole gender thing I still use Bridget from time to time.  After checking out most of the characters I finally found the one for me: Dizzy!

Dizzy > All

Dizzy > All

At first I sucked using any of the characters, but I found Dizzy the one I liked to start learning how to play on.  Since then I decided to buy it on my own Xbox 360 over Xbox Live.  My friend who uses Ky Kiske used to be able to easily win every time, that’s all changed now. I quickly surpassed him in skill, he acts like it doesn’t bother him, but I know it does ha ha.  I played survival today (since I got it been unlocking all the story line endings) and got to about level 250, when my long day started catching up to me and I started to fall asleep on my couch.  Guess I’ll have to try it again when I’m more awake.

I’m late in the game, but I think Guilty Gear is an awesome series and I’m glad I was introduced to it.  I tracked down a copy of Accent Core, but I decided that I’m gonna wait and pray they bring Accent Core Plus to the states.  I know it’s very unlikly they will, but I have faith!  Also unlikly, if they decide to work on a Guilty Gear X3 I’ll probably scream like a fan girl.  It’s possible, have faith!
