Street Fighter, Marvel, Melee, and more
The final day of Evolution 2015 has concluded, and we are left with a slew of new champions.
There were upsets and heart-breakers, but most importantly hundreds of hours of the highest-level fighting games. Games featured today were Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mortal Kombat X, and Guilty Gear: Xrd -SIGN-.
Best moment of EVO so far?
Today's top story from EVO came from a Guilty Gear Xrd match between Woshige and Ogawa.
After pulling off a comeback victory in the second round, Woshige mistakenly thought he'd won the match in its entirety. He stood up and ...
Face down, ass up
Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator is the totally normal and appropriately named follow up to Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, which Chris loved. Johnny is a series mainstay, but pumpkin faced Jack-O is a newbie and, uh, interesting.
That's definitely the most sexual crouch animation I can remember seeing. She is 2 live.
She looks awesome
Arc System Works is developing a follow-up to Guilty Gear Xrd called Revelator, which will add fan favorite Johnny to the cast. But there's also an additional special mystery character on the way, which is now confirmed as "J...
It works at least
In the past 24 hours I've spent some time with the PC port of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R, and I'm partly pleased with the results in terms of the netcode. Your experience really does differ based on the connection rank...
I really enjoyed Guilty Gear Xrd on PS4. It was smooth, it looked beautiful, and mechanically, it was sound. But people really took issue with the limited cast, and wanted more. Arc System Works is partially addressing t...

Hope you like Mega Man X5 references
Some people say GG is the best thing in gaming today. Others say it's all flash and no substance, existing to drawing attention to itself and nothing more. No, I'm not talking about that GG. I'm talking about Guilty Gear, th...
Available for $7.99
Before I got worked up about a $7.99 DLC character in Guilt Gear Xrd, I thought about what was already on offer. The console version has a few extra exclusive characters in comparison to the arcade edition, and Elphelt i...
Heaven or Hell, rock again
I've spent many late nights with Guilty Gear. Week-long tournaments, money-matches between friends; it was the perfect series to play around with, and one of my most competitive. But as time went on, the franchise started to ...
Waiting on netcode testing
As of right now, the embargo on Guilty Gear Xrd has lifted -- we can talk about it, and hot damn is there a lot to say. The game is beautiful, extremely crisp, and the gameplay is just as good as it always was. While som...
Of course you do
For some games that have elaborate stories or lots of spoiler points, I tend to avoid any and all coverage if possible. I like going in completely blind, like the bosses of the Souls series for example. For oher titles,...
From Kiss Ltd. and Funbox
Guilty Gear generally gets the "update" treatment quite often, and that's especially true for Guilty Gear X2, which had five of them. In September though you'll be able to play Guilty Gear X2 - Reload on PC, as publ...
It works on PS3 too
If you're a fan of six-button fight pads and find yourself wanting a new one for your PS4, you're in luck -- Arc System Works is releasing a pad for Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN. It features a full layout with the R1 and R2 keys as f...
Cast in the name of God, ye not guilty

Guilty Gear Xrd will have another Kiske in town when it launches -- Sin -- the son of Ky and Dizzy. He has a special modifier called "Full Stomach," that lowers a bar with every special move -- you have to eat food to re...
Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- playable, if I was BlazGreen I would die
I had a pretty nice EVO 2013 at the live streaming get together we here are Destructoid threw in a San Francisco bar. Meanwhile, contestants (as opposed to us novice drunks) are in store for an even nicer EVO 2014 as Arc...

Fan campaign pushing publisher
Last month's release of Guilty Gear Isuka on Steam has fans of ARC System Works' fighting games hoping that more of their titles might make it to the platform in future, and a campaign has developed to encourage publishe...
Some sort of Jumanji book about the secret Backyard gets hidden away, but an evil power erupts from the Backyard itself (kind of like The Gate) threatening the world and, uh, only the power of cheesy rock and roll and drop d...
Bizarre and stylized fighter still shows it's got the right stuff
There's been a lot of buzz lately regarding the new fighter from Arc System Works. With several location tests going in Japan, fans are already getting some quality time with the title. Recently, we saw the return of Zato=One...
I wonder what his wake-up game is like? Oh snap!
Last week, Arc System Works teased a brand new addition to the Guilty Gear series, and that character has been revealed as none other than "Bedman." Not much is known about this mysterious addition, other than the fact that h...

The battle intros are particularly smooth
Guilty Gear Xrd is sounding great so far, and the more I see of it in action, the better it looks. As a lifelong fan, the engine looks seamlessly integrated into the classic style of the franchise. The animated cutscenes are...
