This weekend I played a lot of Guilty Gear: Xrd – Revelator. I watched the entirety of the story (yes watched, not played), completed over 400 combos and 70 missions. Soon (probably today) I start working on this version’s M.O.M. Mode, then at some point I’ll play a bit online as well. I’ll be able to write up a review for it soon.
If you’re not familiar with Revelator, check out my review on Guilty Gear: Xrd – SIGN, as pretty much everything I wrote there holds true for Revelator, with some changes. The graphics are just a teensy bit more polished, (though you’ll need a sharp eye as SIGN looks gorgeous to begin with) there are new menus and HUD, your character will glow blue when a BURST is ready, there’s a new lobby with a customizable avatar for online mode, a fishing mode for collectibles and character colors, a new story, 5 new characters (Jam, Johnny, Raven, Haehyun, and Jack ‘O), a change to the tutorial and mission modes, and a ton of things that I’m probably missing, forgetting, or haven’t tried yet, like M.O.M. mode. If you’re a Guilty Gear or fighting game fan in general, you really should get Revelator, especially if you liked SIGN.
In anime-related news, Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto was as good as it always is (the arm sax) and Kiznaiver, well… It seems like there’s a LOT going on to be wrapped up in a single episode… I guess we’ll see what happens on Saturday.
