Japanese Guilty Gear god showcases nutty Faust combo while avoiding his own bomb with surgical precision

Faust is often regarded by many to be the 'weakest' character in Guilty Gear Strive right now, and the fact that a good number of his items can harm him too certainly don't help his case.

Once a Faust player masters how to work around his own tools, however, the good doctor can be just as deadly as the rest of the cast, and former Evo champion Nage recently showcased that to perfection.

Goldlewis Dickinson shares a big design flaw with one of Guilty Gear Strive's other newcomers

Goldlewis Dickinson finally stepped out of the office and onto the battlefield this week with his reveal as the first DLC character for Guilty Gear Strive, which has split players between being super pumped to give the big guy a try and those who don't really seem to care much for him.

One thing most people can probably agree on, however, is that the secretary of absolute defense is fairly unique design-wise, but in that regard Dickinson shares a fairly major flaw that was previously lobbed at another of Strive's new fighters.

Alioune updates his Guilty Gear Strive tier list before Goldlewis Dickinson's release

Late last month, Alioune released a tier list for Guilty Gear Strive that had Sol Badguy sitting at the very top. The experienced fighting game player recently decided to update his tier list just before the release of Goldlewis Dickinson.

Unsurprisingly, Sol Badguy still resides in S+ tier. It's also worth mentioning that there still aren't any characters in the S tier category, which seems to emphasize a significant gap between Sol Badguy and the rest of the roster.

Some believe they spotted a new move for Anji in Goldlewis' Guilty Gear Strive starter guide but this isn't actually the case

Goldlewis Dickinson will be releasing as a playable character in Guilty Gear Strive on July 27 for those that own the first Season Pass. In preparation for this, Arc System Works recently released a starter guide video that explains exactly how Goldlewis Dickinson works during gameplay.

With the hope that Arc System Works will also release a balance patch when Goldlewis is made available, many believe that they were able to spot a new move for Anji Mito in the first minute of the video. However, the move that fans have been pointing out is actually a move that Anji Mito already has access to.

Justin Wong lists his top 5 fighting games of all time, includes Street Fighter 5

With tons of amazing tournament performances across a myriad of titles and more Evo victories than anyone else on the planet, (by a wide margin) Justin Wong has most certainly carved out a place for himself in the fighting game hall of fame.

As one of the genre's most legendary players, his words and opinions carry quite a bit of weight in the community, and he's very recently shared his thoughts in terms of the top 5 fighting games of all time.

Goldlewis' Guilty Gear Strive starter guide reveals exactly how the peculiar new DLC character plays

The starter guide for the latest Guilty Gear Strive character, Goldlewis Dickinson, has been posted by Arc System Works. It cycles through the newcomer's attacks and maneuvers, and gives a general idea of how he'll function in game.

As you'll see in the video, this big bodied behemoth has a handful of unique and perhaps somewhat awkward inputs that are unlike most other characters we've seen in Strive thus far.

Guilty Gear Strive developers: We are going through the verification processes for crossplay, but it'll take some time

Since its release last month Guilty Gear Strive has received high praise from both the East and the West as players from both the East and the West have been able to legitimately play with one another over the internet thanks to the game's stellar netcode.

With so much potential for relatively smooth online international play, it's a bit of a shame that Strive doesn't also boast crossplay... at least, not yet. During a recent interview with Comunidad Arc System Works, producer Takeshi Yamanaka and director Akira Katano spoke about the potential for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC users to be able to play Strive with one another.

Goldlewis Dickinson has a unique meter mechanic in Guilty Gear Strive likely connected to his alien pal

The secretary of absolute defense finally got his time to shine outside of Story mode with his reveal as Guilty Gear Strive's first DLC character, but there's still a lot we don't know about how he'll actually play.

There are some new clues that may change that, however, as there's now confirmation that Goldlewis Dickinson does indeed have some sort of unique mechanic tied to his character.

Who needs a new Guilty Gear Strive DLC character when you can now play a buff Mr. Dolphin mod for Potemkin

May's Totsugeki dolphin spamming capabilities and Potemkin's wild damage output are two of the biggest memes to take over the Guilty Gear Strive zeitgeist these past few months, and now they've been combined into one terrifyingly adorable character.

Narasette has released probably the best mod available for Strive at the moment that transforms the grappler into a ridiculous, buff Mr. Dolphin, which is every bit as great as it sounds.

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

The first DLC character for Guilty Gear Strive Season Pass 1 is slated to be revealed tonight at 6:00 p.m. PDT / 9:00 p.m. EDT. This mysterious challenger will be a complete newcomer to the Guilty Gear series, so it'd have to be someone like Happy Chaos or Goldlewis Dickinson rather than somebody like Jack-O' Valentine.

Moustached Villain recently... "leaked" that the first character coming to Guilty Gear Strive via DLC is Goldlewis Dickinson. 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...

I-No match up chart in Guilty Gear Strive released by SonicSol after a month of playing her

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.

Although I-No acts as one of the main antagonists of Guilty Gear Strive's story mode, she hasn't been quite as impactful as someone like Sol Badguy, Ramlethal or May in the tournament meta. As such, SonicSol's match up chart for I-No certainly isn't depicting her as some secret top tier.

Steam Deck reportedly cannot run some of the most popular games on PC, but what of the fighting game selection?

Valve decided to jump into the realm of handheld gaming last week with the announcement of the Nintendo Switch-like Steam Deck though there's many questions floating around currently about what we'll actually be able to play on the device upon release.

According to ProtonDB via PC Gamer, many of the most popular games on Steam would not be compatible with the Steam Deck right now including the likes of Destiny 2, Apex Legends and Rainbow Six Siege, but what does that mean for the fighting game selection on the new hybrid system.
