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.
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.
