[QUOTE]A little sad about Blazblue, but perhaps I'm not the only player who has become disenchanted with it. I don't really keep up with the pulse of BB opinions.[/QUOTE]I like it at the casual level just to play with friends and I don't really put much effort into learning the later games, but the series in general has become a combo-ville snorefest* and Mori at the helm of design isn't really helping, and it's easy to tell how much Ishiwatari is becoming upset with his design philosophies. CS iterations have just made me appreciate CT more, and it's the one I'd rather play if I ever bother playing BB again. Some people are annoyed because there's BBCSEX upcoming, but even with Arcsys' traditional drastic tweaks, it's still a relatively small update that only brings Relius to the table, and it's just Mori's attempt to keep BB relevant when he should concentrate on really advancing the story big time with BB3 and a highly significant amount of changes and additions to gameplay including more characters. And just giving people a bit more of the current story-arc plus a retelling of the first game's story with only one extra character while having people unlock the three previously DLC characters means nothing to the western competitive scene. Nobody goes to Evo to watch someone play story mode, and since most tourneys are sporting one on one matches rather than dramatic battles, nobody at a tournament is planning on using the 2-on-2 multiplayer mode--not even for SFxTekken. *I know, KOFXIII is pretty combo-y too. The difference is that KOFXIII's combos are just harder to execute and actually are more meter-based, whereas BB's combos have way too much lenient timing, require hardly any meter management and are thus only there to be fancy while doing damage rather than be performed for tactical purposes. Since you can't air-reset your opponent in BB unless they VOLUNTARILY TECH, choosing to combo versus choosing not to combo is hardly a worthwhile question when it's obvious that the better option is to just combo as you're not really going to gain anything from not maintaining your combo.
