HIGH Labrys' elegant, touching story.

LOW The white story text can sometimes be hard to read.

WTF I forgot how much I missed these characters until Arena reminded me.

Persona 4: Arena is wow

First, a disclaimer—this is NOT a review. Just saying. So, Persona 4: Arena... like, WOW. As someone who wasn't really a fan of the BlazBlue fighting games, I wasn't overly excited about the thought of those devs taking one of the best Japanese role-playing games from the last decade (if not the last... ever) and making a fighting game out of it, but I just received a review copy and I've been playing it for the last few days.

Guilty Gear X

Game Description: Guilty Gear X is a visually stunning 2D fighter for the PlayStation 2 console. Speed is the name of this game—the faster you fight, the deadlier your arsenal of attacks. Build up the tension gauge for a number of effects, then go for the instant kill! Guilty Gear X is the most explosive version in the series, making full use of the PlayStation 2's enhanced hardware capability. New to the PS2 version are a revamped tension gauge, an instant-kill move (very tricky, yet very rewarding), and the stunning Roman candle—a move that enables experienced players to create their own devastating combos.

There are at least two very distinct experiences a player can have when playing Guilty Gear X. Which one you get depends on whether you're a master or a masher.

Guilty Gear X2 – Second Opinion

I knew I was going to be in for a treat when I saw that silly nun-boy Gene described jump onto her...his, yo-yo and ride it like a pair of roller skates. Is it terribly original though? That's hard to say.

Guilty Gear X2 – Review

Then there's Zappa from Guilty Gear X2 (GGX2), Sammy's sequel to the estranged Guilty Gear series. He may not be the main character of the game, but he remains a fighting game character nonetheless. And although his moves follow the basic principles that Ryu laid out more than a decade ago, everything else about him does not.
