    Wonder when Rev 3 or whatever it’s called will be announced.

    Unless we see more major content release for the game I don’t think we will see anything but updates. I’m sure they are working on the next Guilty Gear + 3 other fighting games :P

  • SevTheBear

    Good fighter + awesome OST. It may not be the easiest one for beginners, but if you use the games decent tutorial mode you can learn it in not time :)

    It’s awesome they keep updating their games and they make some solid fighters :D

  • Mr0303

    Define major content. Last time I checked 2 characters were enough to justify a new version.

  • SevTheBear

    Ah okay. I thought Rev 2 was with the final DLC and all the update up til the release. For the most when we see a second release of a game it’s a complete edition. If that so, I guess a Rev 3 could happen

  • Mr0303

    Rev 2 was the third release of the same game, so I’d say anything is possible. ArcSys are as bad as Capcom in that regard.

  • SevTheBear

    Jesus. No wonder digital sales is so high. What is the point owning the physical version of the first release if you need to DL 2-20GB updates xD

  • Mr0303

    There is little sense buying ArcSys games day 1. Also you couldn’t upgrade the first version to the latest one.

  • SevTheBear

    This is the reason I almost never buy games the first month they are out. Bugs of all kinds, broken launch or shitty port job. I got Rev 2 version for that very reason. To avoid major patch downloads and paying for DLC. That’s the same reason I haven’t bought Injustice 2 yet. Waiting for the COMPLETE EDITION. Hell if you buy the launch version of Horizon Zero Dawn now, you have to DL an 16GB patch before you can play the game…

  • Mr0303

    I don’t mind patches, but selling half a game at launch is something I can’t support.
