    Since 2014 the intinal game in the Guilty Gear Xrd Sign has been released that featured a cast of new and old characters. During summer of 2016, an update called Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator was released, furthing increasting the cast of characters as fans get old classic favorites and new ones to play with. Now it strikes again. Just like past street fighter game updates, in form of "Must buy new game" to update, Arc system works announced at the end of the Aksysy game awards 2016 That happened ealier today another update, called Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 for Playstation 3 Playstation 4 and PC via steam.

    Well the 3rd update since 2014, hope this is the last, tired of buying a new game that cost full price for more content instead of just some update or DLC that can be downloaded for less cost to the original game like street fighter IV. :P

    But i wanna play with the ninja, he... or she seem funny. :)

    Baiken, she's a samurai :P One-armed at that, pretty badass. Yeah, I'm not a fan of buying the same game three times but it seems to be the norm in the fighting games scene. Good thing I'm not a SF guy myself :P

    No, i mean the business ninja answer. I know who baiken is since i known her in other games. The new guy or girl... fights by using paper as weapons. :P

    Is probably not the best time to be a street fighter guy anyway especially if you are just casual player liike me not competitive. But yeah, Street fighter 2 updates were like that and that was pretty bad, so i didn't think this game would be like that all of a sudden. I just bought the xrd revelator back in november during black friday but now a new one comes soon? I could have just waited. :blink:

    Played a bunch Testament back in reloaded - also Robo Ky and LOTS of Order Sol. I just wanted to master that damned Dragon Install, but the best I could was doing the entire combo minus the last keypress :( One of these days!

    I think the worst part of dragon install was th fact that he gets into stun state after it ends so if you don''t know the enemy down, before it happens, is a free combo. The tutorial section has nice information on how to play with characters and against them, but nothing about how to properly use dragon install which could have been nice, since i don't see many players use it. I just like how he look more like some neon dragon and the music change. :P

    So no one liked that yo-yo girl bridget? :creep:
