[color=#ff1550]Blazblue official site has been updated and the game's moves list is available in a Zip file.[/color] Official site: [URL=http://blazblue.jp/]http://blazblue.jp/[/URL] Moves List: [URL=http://blazblue.jp/images/lt/bbcp_pdf.zip]http://blazblue.jp/images/lt/bbcp_pdf.zip[/URL] First two things that came to my mind with the new character designs- "What's Zenia from Arcana Heart 2 doing in this thing", and "Damn that's a really pink [URL=http://www.google.com/search?safe=off&q=gackt+vocaloid&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N]Gackt Vocaloid[/URL]". [QUOTE] This news certainly beats the heck out of BB:Continuum Shift Extend but I was never certain what the point of CSE was anyway. What's the reaction been like to this news in Japan? Are people excited or have BB players shifted over to Persona 4 and not looked back? Was everybody hoping for a new Guilty Gear game instead? [/QUOTE] I haven't checked around much but the reactions seem to be different depending on where you search. Overall on Twitter, the responses have been good and everyone seems to be looking forward. 2ch on the other hand (it's becoming a sorry hangout of old tired men nowadays) is more mixed. Twitter is probably a better reflection of the general public's opinion. There's certainly voices of concern that it might eat into P4A's popularity, but I wouldn't really consider it an issue at this point. This new BB is coming out during winter in arcades, so it'll probably be spring at earliest when it hits consoles. What came to me as something interesting is that-- although I've been suspecting as such, there's a huge gap of opinion between arcade players and more general fans. The arcade players care crap about the storyline and wish for the game to come out cheaper on console, while the fan crouds are really looking forward to it. Personally, I think storyline is one of the core factors of fighting games on consoles. P4A, thus far, has been a perfect example of what I'd consider an ideal console fighting game release. Each character has nearly about 2 hours of storyline. It's very well written (although I swear the English translations are outright Bland and an eyesore), and even at parts that overlap between characters, the script isn't recycled. Hell, I haven't even played the original RPG and I was impressed. Atlus brought in a lot of writers to get it accomplished. BB's storylines have been generally really short in past releases, so hopefully they'll take note of Atlus' work. The BB novel series is not all that bad, actually.
