You have to see this comical parody of Goldlewis Dickinson's 'leaked trailer' for Guilty Gear Strive before tonight's announcement

In fact, he even released the trailer for Goldlewis Dickinson before Arc System Works. It's totally not an edit that self inserts Moustached Villain dressed as Goldlewis into Guilty Gear Strive gameplay...

SonicSol has recently released a Guilty Gear Strive match up chart for I-No. Apparently, SonicSol has been playing I-No for a full month for the purpose of formulating his opinions on the character.
