Series creator Daisuke Ishiwatari drew a lot of the pieces for Guilty Gear XX, complimented by artist Emiko Ishiwaki - Gorgeous artwork gallery here

I remember well the first time I saw a Guilty Gear arcade machine at an anime and games convention as a kid. I was instantly transfixed with how good it looked, and how dynamic the action was, and one thing that left a huge impression on me was the gorgeous artwork present in the game.

The game I saw that day turned out to be Guilty Gear XX Reload, I found out after some research, and I've been a huge fan of the series ever since. Guilty Gear XX had some absolutely incredible pieces throughout its different versions, and many of them were actually made by the series creator himself, who actually also plays guitar on many of the game's tracks - truly a multitalented man.

If you've managed to somehow miss the amazing art present in Guilty Gear, or if you'd just like to look it over again, here's a small sample for you.

Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator releases on Steam on December 14th

Out of no where, it has been announced that Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator will release on Steam on December 14th. Those who have not already gotten the game now have the opportunity to get it for the PC.

There haven't been any differences between the Steam and console versions of the game announced. We should probably expect it to be the same as the console versions as a result.

Kum Haehyun, Raven, and Dizzy will have to be purchased separately in order to be used in the Steam version of the game. It is noted that Raven can be unlocked using the in-game currency.

Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator only $17.99 on PlayStation 4 right now, King of Fighters 14 SteelBook Edition also on sale

It's a great week to pick up some of the games you haven't yet added to your library.

First up, if you haven't purchased Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator, you might want to do so now. The PlayStation 4 version is currently 70% off over on the PlayStation Store. Down from the retail price of $59.99, you can get it for $17.99 up until November 29th.

King of Fighters fans are also in luck as the KOF14 SteelBook Edition is currently on sale at Amazon. This collector's edition is currently available for $39.99.

Thanks to Michael Martin and Wario64 for shouting these sales out.

No love for Dr. Paradigm... here's who our readers want to see added into Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator now that Dizzy is in

Updated: And the results are in! Find out how our readers voted by clicking the jump.

Earlier: After we got several classic characters back with the release of Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator, in the forms of Jam, Johnny and Dizzy, I just can't help but imagine how cool some other classic Guilty Gear characters would be in Xrd.

Since I doubt that I'm alone in feeling this, I've decided to put up a poll to ask you, our loyal readers, who you're hoping to see added to Guilty Gear Xrd down the line.

Instead of focusing solely on playable characters from previous titles, though, I decided to go the ArcSys way and include the exact same poll options as they did last year, obviously minus Dizzy and Raven since they've already been added to the game's roster.
