BlazBlue Continumm Shift 2 PSP/3DS trailer hypes hard

3:00 PM on 04.16.2011 // Jonathan Holmes

The new BlazBlue is coming to the PSP and the 3DS in the US at the end of May. The game is already out in Japan, where it sold fairly well on the PSP, but more-or-less bombed on the 3DS. My guess is that's because as of right now, the PSP version of the game has Ad-hoc online play when streamed through the PS3, but no online play to speak of on the 3DS.

I'm still headed towards getting the 3DS version though, for the superior d-pad and the chance to check out 2D sprites on a 3D display. I'll miss the online play, but with all the new single player content, I'll still have plenty to do. For more details on the new single player stuff, and just about everything Continuum Shift II has to offer, check out the press release below.

So how about it people, you up for some more BlazBlue? If so, which handheld do you want t it on?

Just started playing Hyrule Warriors again. Man is that game fun. A bit mindless at times granted, but fun nonetheless.

I ate vanilla ice cream and didn't put on any chocolate syrup. Now wondering if that was racist whitewashing #thanksjed.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.

MGSV Pro Tip: Turn your brightness down to 0. It actually makes the view distance for the guards correct, and doesn't make nighttime the best option for you every single time. When guards shoot flares in the sky, the lighting looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Proof I listened to too much Weird Al growing up: I really do hear "Living in America" as "Living with a Hernia."

I've been playing a shit ton of Heroes of the Storm recently. It's my first MOBA and I'm SHOCKED at how much fun I'm having. Anyone else into it? Would love to get some games in with Dtoiders.

I would wait for a chance to play the game by myself, but I just have to know. Is David Hayter in MGS V in any way? Please no spoilers.

As someone who hasn't played the MGS series at all, should I play it by release date or story order?

Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!

So I can plug any headphones I want into my PS4 controller. If said headphones have a mic, will it work in chat?

Gee whilikers, guys. I might just explain where I've been and what I've been up to while I've been gone. That'd be a good topic for a c-blog getting me whipped back into shape, right? I'ma try to write more, so expect more of me in the future!

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.
