On Friday, Akira, a known BB Tager player was a guest player on stage and had some matches vs the stage hosts. You can see him play Bedman, May, and Faust. The female host plays Millia, while both of the male hosts play Sol. All credit goes to Kurushii for ripping and re-uploading these stream videos.
On Saturday, a special tournament was held, in which 8 press representatives competed in a single elimination bracket! Some of them actually had an idea of how to play the game, so this is probably the best footage we’re going to get of the game before its eventual release. Speaking of release, Xrd has been officially announced to drop on February 20, so it will be coming in less than a week now. You can find the tournament footage in the Youtube clip below.
Last thing I will mention is site related. I am still lost as to how the fix the site comments, and for now I’ve pretty much given up. So instead, Norematch will now be using a third party commenting system called Disqus. I have heard that it increases page load time, so I hope that the effect won’t be too significant on this site. I apologize in advance, because it requires registration before making any comments. A slight inconvenience, but it’s still better than having no comments!
