Well my prize made it today and I just wanted to say thanks.
Well the week is over time to get on PSN.... nope. What else can I do? Hmm a package for me. Who the hell is Erik Schmidt? wait Las Vegas. Hell Yeah it's here. BlazBlue Calamity Trigger Limited Edition, thanks Gouki.com .
Of course I have to start with Story mode, and it starts with a video. Some scientists talking, experiment going wrong, then something badass in space shoots a blazer. So far story looks good. I go for Taokaka first and lots more story. She is amusing in a clueless way. Her story is centered on saving her village of cat people. But as far as her fighting style I'm not to impressed. I end up being shot home in a cannon. But story mode gives you choices and different endings so I'll try her again later.
Who should I play as next? There is a guy named Bang, decision made. To start he is trying to help out some villagers as the place burns. After a lot of story I get to the first fight, not to impressed here either. Even without knowing much about the game these fights are pretty easy. And I get my first distortion Finish against Jin. And I finish his story running away.
I guess I'll try Ragna since everyone is looking for him. His story starts with fire then he loses his arm. So far I've been more into the stories than the fighting. And he meets a vampire girl, I know who I want to play as next. His fighting style seems a lot more fun. There is still hope for this to be a good game. 1 out of 3 with 12 total characters, chances are good I'll like a few more. I meet Hakumen again, and hope that I can play as him. And I take my first loss. Take a second shot at it and I get by. And then he dine and dashes? yeah looks like I'll need to do some time in story mode to see what else is going on. I think it's great to get into a fighter with story, but time to try Arcade mode now.
Hakumen is selectable here, so that's where I'll start. And just a few matches in I get my first perfect. I do fine all the way to the 9th fight with V-13 then I get my ass handed to me. Second time around i scrape by with a win though. Then Ragna goes down easy enough and I get a little story at the end. Not bad. Another character that's worth playing, but I can tell I need to hit training to really get the most out of the game.
The artwork is well done for the characters and stages, the voice acting is a little cheesy, and the music was pretty good. Overall it seems like the game is worth putting some time into. And I suspect I'll pick up the other BlazBlue once I finish this. I don't think it's as fun as Guilty Gear, but it's still a good game. Thanks again Gouki.com
