Guilty Gear II Overture boss demands payment for play time

By Spencer . May 30, 2008 . 9:38am

Arc System Works is getting into the microtransaction groove with Guilty Gear II Overture by charging a small fee to play as the boss character Raven. I don’t remember him being a playable character in any other Guilty Gear game so this may be a first. The experience will cost 400 Microsoft Points ($5) when […]

Watch – Going online with Guilty Gear II Overture

By Spencer . December 5, 2007 . 10:59am

When I think of Guilty Gear I imagine 2D fighters and lots of juggling. Not, a mashup of Dynasty Warriors and Powerstone. But, maybe we should embrace the change? The online mode keeps the glitz Guilty Gear and adds two extra players (four total) in a siege-like mode. I’m interested in it because it’s quite […]

By Spencer . October 18, 2007 . 10:05am

Good news European readers! Guilty Gear XX Accent Core is on its way in February 2008 care of 505 Game Street. However, they are neglecting the Playstation 2 version. Only the Nintendo Wii version with awkward motion control will be released over there. Good thing the classic controller works too, right Levi?

Musical masterpieces: The best video game soundtracks you’ve never heard

By Levi . September 5, 2007 . 12:02pm

Ask a gamer what makes a great game, and the first answer you'll most likely get will almost undoubtedly be either graphics or gameplay. But one very important and oft overlooked part of what makes a game great is the soundtrack. The music in a video game can touch us, make us scared, make us […]

Last week Arc System Works threw Guilty Gear XX Accent Core into Japanese store shelves without enough QA testing.
