Blazblue Arrives On Next Gen!

May 7, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Whilst 2D fighting games generally remain a thing of the past, they retain a cult status amongst gamers and remain widely loved by many fans. Whilst the Guilty Gear franchise continues to wave the flag for 2D fighters, they are certainly a dying breed. Recent games such as Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Street Fighter IV are strictly 2D gameplay-wise, but the graphics aren't, and so they lack that classic look that many gamers are still in love with. This makes the news of upcoming 2D Beat em Up Blazblue a source of much excitement amongst fans.
Blazblue isn't actually a new game, rather it was an Arcade game that remained exclusive to amusements and is now finally being ported to the Next Gen consoles. The game has a reputation for being quite technical, and is favoured by veteren Beat em Up gamers. That being said, the opportunity to play it at home means that the general gaming public get a chance to practice for free rather than losing out on all their money at the arcades!
Blazble makes use of three onscreen bars at any given time. The first bar is obviously the health gauge, and we all know what that does. The second bar is the Barrier bar. When an opponent attacks you, it's possible to shield yourself, but as you do your Barrier meter runs down. When it is gone, you will be stunned, unable to protect yourself, and at the mercy of your enemy. The final, bottom-most bar is called the Offense Gauge. The Offense Gauge appears as a bar half red and half blue, and will spread to dominance of either colour depending on the rate and effectiveness of your attacks. Once you complete your colour, the opponent will be stunned and open to a flurry of attacks. These gauges are implemented to reward sharp, consistent attacks.
BlazBlue will be coming to thePlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this summer, and certainly looks the part. Expect to see the usual set of single player and multiplayer options, and get prepared to hail the dominance (sort of) of 2D fighters!

Wii's Best Combat Games

want to know you're choosing the right fighting game for your Wii? Check out this list of the top five and make sure you've got your moves ready!

#5: Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus

The 2-d style of beat 'em ups has always retained a cult status in this age of 3-d fighters, and with this game it is easy to see why. Though the game's anime-style characters can be over-the-top in appearance and nature, the goofiness only adds to the fun. Just be sure to hook up a Gamecube or Classic controller. If you're going to play in the classic style you need the classic pad, right?

#4: Naruto: Clash Of Ninja Revolution 2

Viewed as something of an expansion on Naruto's first outing on the Gamecube, Naruto: Clash of Ninja: Revolution 2 brings the action to the Wii, and a host of welcome additions with it.
The ability to use use hand signs to built up energy without even attacking, as well as being able to wrap a exploding spell scroll around a kunai knife before throwing it (resulting in a successful "letter bomb") are very welcome additions, although partly because they simply should have been there in the first place.

In any case, it's certainly a worthy installment in the series, and deserves to be checked out, especially if one has not played the first, and even more so if one is a fan of Naruto.

#3: Mortal Kombat Armageddon

The pioneer of the violent fighting game, Mortal Kombat has always led the pack when it comes to combining awesome gameplay with cringeworthy violence.

Viewed as the final true Mortal Kombat game using the current universe and characters, Armageddon boasts over 60 kombatants as every single character since the first ever game make their appearance for the final showdown. Take the violence to the next level with the racing and conquest mini games!

#2: Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3

The latest and best Tenkaichi game also happens to be simply one of the best fighting games on the Wii yet. The reason for this becomes clear when you understand the nature of the gameplay.

The real beauty of this game is in the multiplayer option, which sees over 200, yes 200, playable characters available to enter the fray, each with their own set of skills and moves, definitely no mean feat!
The 3-D open-stage battles make this the future of fighting. There are so many things to do and places to be in each stage, (not to mention the amount of characters you can be) it's highly improbable for the exact same thing to happen twice. Talk about replayability!

1#: Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Super Smash has been a wildly successful franchise so far, and this instalment cements its reputation as one of the most fun fighters around. Brawl could be compared to Guilty Gear, only with slightly more realistic visual effects and attacks. But what really makes Smash Bros. so unique is it's fighters, which are based on renowned videogame characters. Want to see Solid Snake beat up Sonic the Hedgehog? Then look no further!
