At the 2016 Evolution Championship Series (or "EVO 2016" for short), an upcoming feature was revealed for the PlayStation 3 and 4 fighting game Guilty Gear Xrd - Revelator. Titled "Digital Figure Mode", the new feature will allow players to capture their favorite scenes' character models both as virtual figurines and intricate dioramas.

The Digital Figure Mode sports a lot of customization. For example, players will be able to change the character's colors to their preset palette of choice, as demonstrated here with Ino:

Along with colors, players can also change the poses of the figures, and look at the character models in more detail via zooming in.

Here are some various poses from the Digital Figure Mode of Sol Badguy, the protagonist of the Guilty Gear series.

Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator unveils its final trailer Thu, 26 May 2016 11:57:11 -0400 TheSmartestMoron

Earlier today, the English trailer for the sequel to the 2D-fighting game Guilty Gear Xrd finally hit YouTube. However, rather than show off more gameplay, the trailer shows more of the characters and the story with Japanese audio and English subs. Take a look below to see what's in store, though be warned for some spoilers from the previous game:

There are a few things to note when compared to the original Xrd and its story: it picks up right after Xrd ended -- Slayer is targeting Bedman now, wanting revenge for the time Bedman knocked him out quickly in the last game. The Assassin's Guild team (which includes Millia Rage, Zato-1, Slayer and Venom) are now working alongside Ky Kiske's group. Jam from previous Guilty Gear games has returned. Elphelt has a new color scheme and is in trouble. New characters are being unveiled, and many more plot points definitely hint at major events leading up to an inevitable war.

The previous entry's story mode featured no gameplay in the story mode. Rather, it was a collection of animated cut-scenes. Currently, it is unknown if Revelator intends to follow in the same footsteps. Regardless of fan feelings on the mode, Xrd has earned a lot of praise, accumulating an 84 on Metacritic.

This new game is being developed by Arc System Works and published by Aksys Games, and all characters from the previous title will return -- alongside some newcomers seen in the trailer.

Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator hits North American store shelves on June 7th, 2016 for the PlayStation 3 and 4. Currently, there is no word of a PC release.

Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator for more than just Japan Thu, 19 Nov 2015 11:40:14 -0500 Thewritevictor

Aksys Games and Arc System Works are proud to announce that Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator's release will not be exclusive to Japan. The game will be released for Western audiences at the same time, in Spring of 2016.

Aksys Games, based in California, specializes in Japanese-to-English translation of games and has been excitedly polishing their latest project. Their press release states Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator "rips along at a blistering 60 frames per second" and players "choose from over 20+ insane fighters" to battle it out in the post-apocalyptic stages. The latest installment also has some new characters like Johnny Sfondi, Jack-O, Jam Kuradoberi, and Dizzy.

New features include:

  • Combo Carnage at the Push of a Button: Stylish Type levels the playing field allowing noobs and pros alike to unleash devastating combos with the push of a button!
  •  Anarchy in Animation: 2D style animation coupled with next gen cell shading techniques obliterate the boundaries between gameplay and anime!
  •  Fighting Evolved: Intense brawls, polished graphics and massive amounts of content ensure the fight is never over!


Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator is a cross-platform tittle for PlayStation, so you can enjoy fighting on a PS3 or PS4.

Strong Female Characters: Zero to Heroine (Orphans Edition) Sat, 06 Jun 2015 02:30:01 -0400 KungFro


So there you have it! Five orphans who grew into women that are just as tough as they are attractive. I'm not knocking the female figure – trust me. I'm just bringing attention to the fact that these games wouldn't be anything if their leading ladies were nothing more than nice to look at.


I hope to revisit the "Zero to Heroine" idea in the future. Until then, go respect your mother or something!


*And a big thanks to jkim910 for the image on the opening slide!

Millia Rage (Guilty Gear series)

Orphaned at an unidentified age, Millia ends up forced into the Assassin's Guild and unwillingly becomes the host of the Forbidden Beast Angra. Though she tries to kill herself many times and falls into a toxic relationship with a fellow assassin, she decides to take her life back, even if it means living on the run.


Angra has bonded with Millia's hair and imbued it with immense strength, along with allowing it be shaped at will. As such, it has become a versatile weapon in the hands of the ex-assassin. It is also capable of giving off a gold glow, similarly to the magical locks of Tangled's Rapunzel. Then again, Millia isn't exactly healing people with hers.


Typically dubbed "cute," though recognized as powerful, Millia is by far the least sexualized of the characters on this list. And the last one had blue skin. Let that sink in for a moment.

Hsien-Ko (Darkstalkers series)

This here's a 2-for-1 special, considering that the yellow paper ward on Hsien-Ko's hat is actually her twin sister, Mei-Ling. Their mother lost her life protecting her daughters from evil spirits, her soul being lost in darkness as a result. Wanting to save their mother's soul, the teenage girls cast a forbidden spell which turned Hsien-Ko into a jiang-shi (Chinese hopping vampire/zombie) and gave her tremendous power. 


As for Mei-Ling, she takes the form of a paper ward to prevent Hsien-Ko from losing control of her new powers. This enables the sisters to fight as one being, as they combat the evil that took their mother from them. It's a pretty insane take on the power of the bond between twins.


It's worth noting that Hsien-Ko has giant claws chained to her body, and tons of other weapons hidden on her person at all times. She's basically a blue-skinned iron maiden.

Lulu (Final Fantasy X)

Lulu lost her parents to Sin at the age of five. She later lost her lover to Sin as well.  She eventually took on the task of being Yuna's guardian, despite not even wanting Yuna to become a summoner, and knowing that both their lives could be lost to Sin as well. If that's not loyalty, I don't know what is.


Beyond her strength as a character and her skill with magic, Lulu marked a massive departure from the traditional black mage garb seen in the Final Fantasy series. Her style marries pearls, fur, lace, and lots and LOTS of belts, while she manipulates sentient dolls to do her bidding... like a classy voodoo dominatrix.


Other notable features of Lulu's design are her crimson red irises, beauty mark, and upscale hairdo. Her cleavage is all out there too, but luckily it's not of the backbreaking variety that Taki is known for.

Samus Aran (Metroid series)

Samus was orphaned at the age of three, when a Space Pirate raid led by Ridley left her as Earth colony K-2L's only survivor. Later adopted by the Chozo of planet Zebes, implanted with their DNA, and trained as a warrior, she ultimately grew up to be the Power Suit-wearing, laser blasting, bounty hunter that lights us up in Super Smash Bros.


The original Metroid left the player to believe that Samus was a man, unless the game was beat within a certain time frame. Passing that challenge revealed her to be a woman, which was some much welcome characterization, though it also allowed her entry into the pantheon of over-sexualized female figures.


Samus need not fear her womanhood though. Her slender figure measures up at 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 198 pounds, and her athleticism is far beyond that of a normal human. She'd crush you.

Taki (Soul series)

A Japanese orphan taken in and raised by the Fu-Ma Ninja clan, Taki is a skilled ninja, spy, blacksmith, and demon huntress with a soul fueled by honor. She also holds the prestige of being a member of the Soul series' debut cast – explaining why her absence from the Soulcalibur V roster caused such an upset.


Her fighting style revolves around speed and maneuverability, utilizing swift kicks and her trademark kodachi to whittle down her opponents, all the while gracefully dodging their attacks. She's prone to blowing unsuspecting players into smithereens and pile-driving the remains. When not locked into the best 3 out of 5, she's tracking down evil swords and telling people how ignorant they are, or doing some hardcore ninja parkour.


With such a large fanbase, Taki is undoubtedly an iconic character and a certified boss. She's also unnaturally well-endowed, which is, unfortunately, the biggest contributor to her fame.


I find myself immeasurably drawn to strong female characters in video games. There's a lot to be said about them, beyond simply their looks, and I'd like to draw attention to just how well-rounded they are. Yes, there's a pun there, BUT FOCUS. Here come five of my favorite female characters with humble beginnings.

Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN Officially Coming To North America Thu, 29 May 2014 22:06:36 -0400 WesleyG

IGN today confirmed that Arc System Works latest game Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN will be coming to North American PS3 and PS4 systems. The latest entry into the long running fighting game franchise, Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN is set in the crazy far off year of 2187 and will feature 15 playable characters including series favorites like Sol Badguy, I-No, and Millia Rage.

The Guilty Gear series began in 1998 and is well-known for its beautiful anime visuals and awesome metal soundtracks. All early indications show that Xrd SIGN will follow in the footsteps of previous games, even while going to a 2.5D visual style instead of the previous sprite based games.

Arc System Works has even brought back long-time series composer Daisuke Ishiwatari to make sure the soundtrack remains a metal lover's fantasy. If the theme song for the Arcade Version Opening (shown above) is any indication, fans will have nothing to worry about.

Though no release date is set, IGN says Guilty Gear fans will be able to play the newest game sometime this fall. I hope you can handle the tension.
