Let me take you for a ride.

Anyone playing the beta this weekend? Game looks pretty cool, I haven't played Guilty Gear since XX, but I think I'll give it a shot. That black vampire samurai dude looks tight. Good music too.

A lot of the characters look cool but I think Nagoriyuki is the standout newcomer. I love his kick that he can juggle people with. I plan to start with Giovanna, however.

i like +r and xrd even tho i'm terrible at them so i hope this is good but imo this seems to be doing the sort of sf5 style thing of simplifying everything to its detriment. fortunately theres still tekken 7 where i i still have to use my maximum brain power unless i buy one of 30 dlc characters that do 80% damage combos off a 5 way mixup from a jab string. epic!

game is fun, it was hard getting used to the new combo route and probably still is but i played some good matches online with weak combos and if the game didnt crash i would have been able to lab out better ones

The problem for a lot of people is going to be that this is more like a whole new game with Guilty Gear characters in it than it is a new Guilty Gear game. But I enjoy the game for what it is for now.

literally no matter what they did old school fans would be saying that it would be better if it was just +r with updated graphics and if they did exactly that they would instead say the pixel art is more expressive and +r is better

Let me take you for a ride.

My impression is they want to get more casual players to pick it up, so they made it less intimidating and complex. I can't really judge which is better, but the rollback netcode and improved visuals definitely convinced to give it a shot.

Well it's been unplayable for a majority of the beta period so far due to the servers being strained but at least the influencers got to play.

I kind of understand where they're coming from because the game feels way different due to gatling restrictions and a lot of characters just missing a lot of their old tools so if you've been playing the series for 20 years you're disappointed that you have to learn a whole new system that you might not even like. But I feel like the game as a whole feels good to move around in and press buttons. The damage being so high is fine to me as well, Potemkin can kill you in two command grabs and people are finding insane things with him and other characters.

the game reminds me of KOF XII based on the big emphasis on slowdown and counterhit mechanics

it's not quite the clash, but it's definitely heavily weighted towards fishing for hits

i get that but you can still play the old games which are still great, and they even added rollback netcode to +r so the online experience has never been better

Fighting game fans are just dumb in general. They complain every time a new game comes out and say the previous one is better cause they knew a bunch about it but now have to learn new poo poo and it pisses them off. I guarantee when sf6 comes out in a couple of years people will be pissed about how itís not like sfv despite the fact that people have complained about sfv through its whole life. Strive looks awesome and excited to play it this weekend

its really fun so far, but the servers are unreliable and laggy so it hasnt been a great experience in the beta. hopefully the server issues get ironed out for release because the netcode is super strong and matches feel great to play, some of the tech coming out is a little weird like the hitbox wavedashing but its good to play even if i cant get to floor 10 because i am complete poo poo at this game

I got to floor 7 then got demoted. Also havenít been able to play many matches but theyíve been seemless, super quick though feels like everything does way more damage now

I got to the secret 11th floor (Heaven) but you have to win 5 out of 6 matches to stay on the floor and I won 1 but lost the next two. Which sucks cause those were like the best matches I've had the entire time. Really close.

The damage is super high but to get it consistently you either need meter or to land a really big hit like a close slash or big counter. I feel like it doesn't effect higher level play as much because you really gotta work to get hits like that. Unless you're Potemkin, who is super hosed up right now.

Edit: So as not to triple post they just announced that they will be extending the beta for two days due to the server issues experienced at the beginning of the test period.
