**Why Newbies to Blazblue should buy:
- The first game is re-told: In story mode, the Extend version gives a condensed retelling of the first Blazeblue game, Calamity Trigger. The re-telling of the Calamity Trigger tale is actually pretty lengthy and Arc System Works discovered ways to involve more characters in the story that were vaguely featured in the first game (such as Tsubaki, Makoto and Hazama). The drawback to the condense version is that it doesn't feature some important unique characterizations found in the first game. You don't learn about Tager and his connection to Kokonoe, Hakumen's role is awkward and never really explained, and the fun-loving Bang doesn't get his moment to shine (does "talk to the hand girlfriend, for I am Bang Shishigami" ring a bell?).
- Not as demanding the the previous Continuum Shift: The last game was hardcore. I would put it on the same level as Super Street Fighter IV due to the online and offline requirements for trophies/achievements. In the Extended version, the game still finds ways to challenge you like the previous game, but it's much more relaxed. Combo trials now feature a lot more variations (15 trials instead of the previous 10), which can help the player learn tactics they may not have even thought of using in battle.Read more ›
The calendar is pretty much just the main illustration of some of the characters against a color background. Not as fancy or big as I was expecting, but it's still nice. The artbook was very nice. Not huge, but the art that it contains is all fantastic. Nice pictures, concept art, pretty much all the great style contained in Blazblue is on display. I only wish that I could take some of them and hang them on my wall. It also comes with a soundtrack, and if I you have played the game for more than 5 seconds you know that it has fantastic music.
The one problem is that the american version doesn't come with as much awesome stuff as other regions (australia also got a manga and a poster, Japan's preorder bonuses included various ecchi things), but unless you are willing to import I suppose you're out of luck. It is still absolutely worth it. The game itself is worth the price, the calendar is pretty alright, but the soundtrack and artbook are icing.
I may note that I purchased this from Amazon and the box was pretty crushed when it got here, and it took a little longer than usual. All contents were fine, and it wasn't an artbox so it isn't a big deal (if it were something like the Puella Magi Madoka Magica LE boxes it would have), but if you are a big fan of packaging you may want to get it from another store.
Lush hand-drawn characters, a great OST, ridicously in-depth combat system, a multi-path Story Mode that puts anything that past fighters have tried to do to shame.
The only negatives that I can think of is that some of the "higher-tier" moves(like Astral Heat or finishers)are hard to do and are even harder to execute properly. This game is meant for high level players, and outside of the Tutorial this game not very "noob" friendly.
If you're just getting into fighting games, I suggest trying something like Super Street Fighter IV or Street Fighter x Tekken to get the basics down. Then you can try you hand at BlazBlue when have a better understanding. And when you think you're ready, BlazBlue will be waiting for you.
I haven't been able to play since I don't have a tv right now and because of an accident I got in a while ago, but I've played the previous 2 games, and was ranked fairly high in the first. Unlike street fighter, you'll come to have a "main," and a "sub" character. Respectively, your main is your primary character who will define you as a player. Think of him or her as being synonymous w/your favorite color; they will become part of you. Your sub will be another character you also like, who you'll practice after you have your main down pretty well. You'll know when you do. Just fry to be patient, there are lots of people willing to help, play casually, and just have fun, so don't get discouraged - many are willing to hold your hand. And with extensive forums available, with videos online , you'll never be lost.
The story in blazblue is also another great feature of the game. I must say, it's refreshing to have such an expanding, dynamic story with each major release. You can decide to indoctrinate yourself into the blazblue world...or just primarily play online. I chose the latter and basically got the entire story from listening to friends online.Read more ›
