Mikado held their 2nd Guilty Gear Xrd singles tournament last night, and they had a special pre-tourney treat for people watching their stream: a big exhibition set between Ogawa, Machaboo, and Nemo! While Nemo has been going to Mikado regularly since the game’s release, Machaboo and especially Ogawa are extremely rare to see. It is pretty amazing to have 3 of the OG gods of the game all gathered in one place. This set of videos is pretty much required watching for all GG fans everyone.

The stream had a brief system explanation as well as a tournament featuring ASW staff members! Shoutouts to Kurushii for […]

Japan Amusement Expo 2014 has been going on this weekend, showcasing all of the upcoming arcade titles. The main stage was streamed on Nico, and there was a decent amount of gameplay footage for Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-! Daisuke joined the hosts on Friday and Saturday, and there was an interview with him which may be translated in the future. One of the most noteworthy things he said was that the Guilty Gear series was too difficult for newcomers to get into, which was the philosophy behind many of the system and character changes introduced […]

Before I talk about the loketests, I’d like to mention that there is currently a problem with comments on this site. For whatever reason, comments are completely broken. Not only are all of the old comments gone, but it is also impossible for anyone to make new comments. I think that this was caused by a recent flood of spam comments. Either way, I have no idea how to fix it, so comments are pretty much going to be nonexistent for the time being. Back to real news! Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- has been announced […]
