A-cho Arcade uploads of high-level Persona 4 Arena and Blazblue: Chrono Phantasma footage

Posted by Nate 'Nyoro' Young • January 27, 2013 at 9:36 a.m. PST
Both of A-cho Arcade's YouTube channels have been busy uploading matches from its arcade featuring games such as Melty Blood, Hokuto no Ken, Blazblue: Chrono Phantasma, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Guilty Gear and more. It has kept up this uploading pace for quite a long time, not hesitant to feature any game, no matter how obscure.

Be sure to hit the jump to see all the videos for each game. Today's feature is focused on Persona 4 Arena and Blazblue: Chrono Phantasma. The footage captured of both of these games is very recent and is relevant to the current top level of play.

Many people ?
BlazBlue is an awesome game with a fantastic universe so I don't see why people shouldn't care about it.

@1 Although they are much more annoying to listen to, ASW games are much faster, dynamic, balanced and unpredictable than Capcom's or Namco's games. Furthermore, in ASW tourneys, pretty much the entire roster gets picked, meaning more different playstyles to be shown. In short, you get matches that are more varied and more exciting, not matches where one hit equals a win (I'm looking at you UMvC3). At least in these games, the winner isn't decided for the start and comebacks are much more exciting to see than in those games.

anyone know when chrono phantasma will be released on the xbox 360 and will it be on disc or dlc? thanks

@5 No news about the release date, but this is surely coming as a new disc. They can't patch Extend into CP.

I really hope more people get into BB. It's such an awesome game, and the fact that people look over it so much disappoints me.

@7 I agree with you 100%
But that new Valk pressure looks sick.
Too bad there were no good Hazamas.

There will most likely be an Xbox 360 release for BBCP alongside the western release of the PS3 version. The only reason there isn't a Xbox 360 version already is, well, who in Japan actually owns a 360? Everyone owns a PS3 instead, mostly because that's where Monster Hunter is, so naturally they develop for that first.

@5
When I read the "Chrono" part of that I thought there was going to be a new game based on the Chrono Trigger franchise.

I now has had.

@10 Which one? Many Capcom games either don't have that fast pacing or are just too predictable.

Blazblue is a great game. Most of the people that are complaining are doing so out of pure biased opinion and are thinking that just because he game is anime based, that its all for weeaboos. Personally I don't like the Persona fighting game because it is boring. Capcom games are great and Arcsys games are great for the most part.

Seeing good S.Labrys scares me, i hate her the most.

Finally that Revolvingsun guy got banned! He was starting to be extremely annoying saying negative things in every article-__-.

Great matches from both Persona and BB. Shadow Labrys can be a real forced to be reckoned with in the right hands, seen especially in that first match in the first video. god Yukiko does so poorly against S.lab its almost painful to even think about that matchup D:

BB:CP is looking fantastic, even more so than the previous game. @numerogaijin imo i think the majority of the BB hate comes from people constantly comparing it to GG, which is dumb because thats kinda the point,its NOT GG. And i find it funny how people trash BB for being anime when the same people bashing it play other fighters that also have "anime" aesthetics, its a double standard really.

genocideSX said on January 27, 2013 at 9:35 p.m.

the hate for this game, or the biase for THESE TYPE of games rather is starting to anoy me. why is it that it is split between the FGC that an "anime fighter " as it is freaquently called is sometimes shot down because of its anime theme.

i understand if it is not your preference that is not what im saying. the fact that most fighting games come from japan and anime themed anything is popular, well for the most part.the fact that most fighting games have had anime renditions if not cartoons like SF or KOF or even tekken. The fact we as the FGC has had these types of games in EVO.....so why is it that it gets discriminated as such. not just BB or P4a but GG or even KOF...i dont even know if thats considered an anime fighter honestly...

what im saying is dont hate it cause of the anime theme.....give it a chance before writing it off -_- i started SF and then branched out so take that for what its worth....how ever i do like anime, just throwing that out there lol

@4 "not matches where one hit equals a win" How can you win in one hit in Marvel? There's three characters to kill. That's three hits; can't Arakune kill some cast with three curse combos?

JiCi said on January 28, 2013 at 11:44 a.m.

@26 UMvC3 doesn't have combo breakers, meaning that one hit leads to one 100% combo which leads to getting KOed in no time. If UMvC3 would prevent 100% combos in any way, then it would be more manageable.

People complain about buffing and nerfing... I'm still waiting for a combo-breaking mecanic like the Mega Crash, wall-teching/ground-teching/mashable air recovery/rolling and/or ways to scale down the combos, such as increasing knockback the higher the combo, increasing recovery the higher the combo, decrease hit stun, all in addition of damage scaling. You know, SOMETHING that would favor short combos instead long combos that have you literally put down your controller since you can't do anything.

ASW have burst mecanics, which basically means: "Try a 100% combo if you dare." UMvC3 would need that to be more manageable. TvC had it and aside from seeing less hyper combos, Mega Crashes didn't break the game. P4A even uses the bursts in trials, as part of combos, and it doesn't break the game.

I know that people wouldn't want MvC to change, but let,s face it: the system isn't perfect and needs tweaking.

@27: "Try a 100% combo if you dare"? Burst is not a reason go purposely go for a lower damaging combo. That doesn't make sense. If I land a hit, the only reason to not go for max damage is for positioning. Maybe I stop the combo early to bait burst, but there's no real negative when going for a max damage combo. Even if they burst, they only get so many bursts to use in blazblu. Not a big deal.

Also, MvC3 has damage scaling. The longer the combo, the smaller the hitstun and lower the damage.

I personally prefer blazblu, but....just saying.
