BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Basics

By Spencer . August 1, 2010 . 6:01pm

Arc System Works heavily altered BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger’s core for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift. Guard Libra system? That’s gone and replaced with Guard Primers, blocks underneath your life bar that are whittled away with each hit. Each character has a different number of Guard Primers.


When these run out… actually, Aksys explains this way better than me in this video, which should get BlazBlue veterans up to speed on the changes.


Thanks for the tip about the video Mary!

    I’m so happy bursting doesn’t make you take extra damage afterwards, and I like the Guard Primer system much better. CS is awesome, they even improved the Story mode to the extent of you don’t have to lose every match just to get 100% Complete. (Well, for MOST characters)

    rar, just watched these earlier helped explain to me why people are recovering in the middle of my aerial strings more often then usual >w<'

  • I really hate what they did to Rachel, who was previously my main. I hope when they do the balance patch, they buff her up again.

    I also have to say that I am very disappointed to hear that Makoto and the other DLC characters will not be playable in story or arcade mode.

      How do you know DLC characters will not be playable in story mode?

      I agree… I’ve finally gotten my hands on CS, and while I’m very satisfied with the additions and upgrades, I’m really shocked at the amount of pressure that I have to put on as Rachel, even more so because she’s not a character that has many good defensive options. I agree in hoping the patch buffs her up, even if only a little…
