19 year old Korean artist draws Guilty Gear characters in style of traditional Japanese art

When we stumbled across the work of the young Han Gong, a 19 year old Korean artist, we just couldn't stop scrolling. It was actually the image of Potemkin rising up to heavenly heights that caught us first, but it was that image of Nagoriyuki in what looks like a sea of blood that kept us going.

These images all seem to nod back to more traditional Japanese art, and perhaps it's the double whammy of Nagoriyuki being a samurai that makes him pair so well with it.

Never, ever try to challenge May's orca Super or you'll end up looking like a clown quite literally

Since Guilty Gear Strive first launched this summer, May continues to be one of the strongest characters in the game, but a lot of the attention has been placed on her Totsugeki dolphin friend without putting as much respect on her larger, deadly sea creature.

PG|Jiyuna recently found out the hard way that you should never attempt to challenge May's orca Super, even if you think you have invincibility, lest you make Ky look like a clown... though I suppose he was already.

Earthquake hits during Southern California player's Guilty Gear Strive tournament match... and he doesn't stop playing

It's hard enough to fend off all of Guilty Gear Strive's crazy offensive strings in normal settings, but to have a 4.3 magnitude earthquake hit during your tournament match? That's exactly the scenario SoCal's Reynald Tascuan faced during an online Twitch Rivals team tournament this past weekend, and he rode it out like a total pro.

Instead of freaking out and running to get under a table or cover of some sort, Reynald drops a few frantic F-bombs and relocates from his gaming chair to the safety of the floor... and keeps playing the match. We have footage not only of the stream, but also of his camera feed so we can see him handle the situation in real time.

Number 1 ranked Anji Mito player doesn't think his biggest buff really amounted to much but it's far from all bad

Anji Mito is a bit of an odd case for Guilty Gear Strive since while his auto-guarding moves seem nice on paper in such an offense-focused game, they often leave him easy to read and ironically counter.

Arc System Works attempted to fix him up with some decent buffs in the latest balance patch, but AnimeIlluminati's PG|Jiyuna released a video detailing why Jiro, the number one ranked Anji player in Strive, believes one of the most notable changes ultimately didn't really help him much at all โ€” though that's not to say he didn't get better.

Awesome Guilty Gear Strive mod transforms Jack-O into Persona 5's Haru but it's also kinda bittersweet

Guilty Gear Strive's input lag reduction on console is quite an impressive feat

Shortly after the release of Guilty Gear Strive this summer, players became concerned about the amount of input lag found in the game on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 compared to its PC counterpart, which led to Arc System Works attempting to reduce the latency on console in the most recent update.
