About This Game

'BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend' is the sixth installment of the BlazBlue series, a combination of 2D fighting action game and visual novel. The game incorporates flashy performance and unique fighting moves with the Drive Button system to quickly take down the opponent. Now players can dish out super-powerful Guard Crush attacks when their opponent’s Barrier Gauge is low with the revamped Guard system. A player can quickly turn the tide of the battle by using BlazBlue’s unique mechanic - Overdrive - to enhance his skills and abilities. With two new characters, Celica and Λ-11-, joining the roster, the player will be able to choose from 28 different playable characters. Also, a story mode named “Remix Heart” is newly added, featuring two characters, Mai Natsume and Kajun Faycott.

My Room

A totally new system, ‘My Room’ has been added to the existing BlazBlue network system. In the room, you can talk with other players and decorate your room with wall items, furniture items and etc. You can even fight with other players as a team in Team Match.

Crush ‘Em!

With the all-new revamped Guard Gauge system, players can now determine when to attack/block using the Barrier Gauge meter. When your opponent’s Barrier Gauge meter is depleted, unleash a powerful barrier-shattering move, Guard Crush!

Ready to Fight with Style?

With Stylish Mode activated, even beginners can perform flashy attacks and combos! Four new features have been added to Stylish Mode: Auto Guard, Combo Attacks, Special Abilities, and Distortion Drive. These features allow players that are new to fighting games to pull off advanced combos!

The next entry in the Blazblue Series.
Pros:
More characters
New overdrive mechanic, allows you to turn the tides of battle
Abyss Mode rework, not a pain in the ♥♥♥ like previous game
Includes all DLC of Chronophantasma
Cons:
Story mode is harder to follow for several reasons
Removal of ability to listen to music and character lines in Gallery Mode
Some new character designs are not as good as older games
Terumi is arguably the easiest character to learn, and can syphon your heat, or special meter, making him an ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
In short, it's a good game, better than others in terms of fighting. If you want story, go get Continuum Shift Extend

-Good story for those who enjoy reading VN.

-Increase of hype towards the next installment!

Cons:

Best fighting game out there, imo. The biggest problem is the lack of online players and release fragmentations that aksys creates.

I've loved blazblue. Newest installment until the 4th game comes out.
Lots of story, tight arc sys fighting mechanics, lots of bells and whistles in blazblue fashion. Many characters to choose from.
As for PC port, the game runs fine. Interface is not the most PC friendly, if you're nuts and use keyboard like myself. Kind of a pain to rebind, but doable. Navigating menus with keyboard is a pain. Online play is next to nonexistant. I got online and tried to search for a ranked match for 30 minutes to no avail. Found a lobby with 3 people but I couldn't figure out how to navigate its strange virtual reality lobby.

This is honestly one of my favourite games. Fast paced, fun, and unlimited styles of battling. The characters are charismatic and developed, with each of them having their own flaws, backstories, character development, and unique play style. The music is very well done, the stages are beautiful, and the gameplay is very enjoyable and doesn't get very old. There's a ton of different options in game, too. The storyline is also well thought out, and is long with all of the characters playing into it nicely. (I used to be a fan of Skullgirls, but after playing this series, it really just can't compare) Though, the one thing I have to say that's bad is that
A) it may not run great on laptops or lower end computers
B) The PC version is often released much later than the console version
TL;DR:

Pros:
-Large cast to choose from, each with unique play style
-Well developed and enjoyable characters
-Beautiful stages
-Good music
- Fun gameplay
-Many options in game going from online modes to fun modes that you can play on your own
-Good, long, developed storyline/backstory

Cons:
-May lag on lower end computers or laptops
-PC version usually released a WHILE after the console version
-It can be a little pricey for someone on a low budget (sales are saviours)

A great port, just make sure you got friends to play with if you're gonna play multiplayer. The lobbies are mostly pretty dead.

Playable cast consists of:
Dante from Devil may cry
His "psst, nothing personal kid" brother
Dual wielding
Loli vampire
Hyperactive cat person
Young boy with doll
Token Chinese character
Squiggly
A big guy
A ninja of love and justice
JUSTICE
Fedora wearer with his CS:GO butterfly knife
His evil(er) alter ego
More JUSTICE
Underboob squirrel girl
Lycanthrope old butler
Token Loli (with split personality)
Man still playing with dolls
Turret deploying robot girl
Magic sword throwing robot girl
The other magic sword throwing robot girl
Token camp character
Shorts
♥♥♥-rail
Even more JUSTICE
Lady killer
Scientific cat person
Healer

They all (with the exception of 1 or 2) play differently from each other through the use of drive attacks that give each character a unique special ability.

Features
Tons of content
Highly convaluted story-line (though the story seems to be quite long)
Incredibly Chuuni antics
Glossary so you actually know what they're talking about this time.
Arcade endings that are much more individualised than the last game.
Izayoi bot
Gallery with cool stuff to unlock
Other things I've forgotten to mention

It's a lot of fun, though I'd recommend using a control scheme other than keyboard such as a controller because attempting to simulate joystick rotations using the numpad keys is not easy.

Even with a controller some of the inputs are a little strange (One of bullet's distortion drive special moves has you perform three full rotations of the joystick)

I wasn't planning neither returning to fighting games, nor getting into BB, but some personal fave of mine dragged me there without asking... Well, I was really excited to learn CP was about to get a PC release. Haven't found a single disappointing moment since then, well, maybe, except for linear stories (compared to CS). Oh, and how do you unlock the H-scenes? XD

I saw a magical girl panties.

10/10

Probably the best fighting game i will play in my life, an absolute library must, best gameplay, best fatalities, probably the only reason i play fighting games, the characters are so carismatic, some bugs at system but nothing to be worried about.

It's anime fightan games, complete with on-demand OVERDRIVE super mode, making the over-the-top crazy even more over the top. Solid mechanics, balanced cast (although some matchups can be frustrating), with a wide variety of playstyles. Online play still has enough people to get matches regularly, during NA and EU hours. Netcode is good. It's awesome, and you should get it.

Thanks ASW/H2 for the great port.

Pros:
+ Latest BB available on consoles, now on PC. for cheap. (BBCF is still only on JPN arcades atm)
+ Online mode works. Yes, a working online mode. In 2016. Isn't that amazing?
+ One of the best, if not the best, netcode.
+ DirectInput Support.
+ Single player content. TONS of them. (Arcade, Story mode, Challenge, Abyss, Score Attack, Unlimited Mars, Challenge, Training, an extra story mode, and a couple of stuff for newcomers)
+ Tutorial will show you the ropes and Challenge mode can make you master some complex combos.
+ Great gameplay. Kinda hard at first, but it's all fun after that.
+ Tons of chars, each one with a unique gameplay.
+ It's not Street Fighter.
+ Contains all DLCs from the console.
+ Can change the annoying default system voice to many others. desuno!
+ Great soundtrack. (subjective)
+ Customize your lobby to look fab.
+ Can play BBCP instead of BBCPE if you want. We love you kokonoe :3
+ EU players don't have to wait a whole year :v
+ Amazing story mode (subjective). Now with the obligatory beach episode, plus a recap episode (for CT/CS events)...
+ Celica. Izayoi.

Cons: (trying to be picky, they're mostly non-issues)
- No online cross-play with consoles. Online might feel like a ghost town sometimes, as most ppl interested in the game already got it on consoles aeons before this PC release.
- I don't have a 5:3 monitor, so any resolution i pick will look weird (with black bars on corners or stretched image. Arcade resolution is 1280x768).
- 720p sprites look weird unless im on 768p windowed or lower...
- No resolution option above 1080p, in case you wanted to make your 720p sprites look even worse. (EDIT: Thanks, uh, Batman for pointing out that you can edit it in the DisplaySetting.cfg in your Documents folder)
- Low quality OP video. It's as if PCs had limited HD...
- Can't customize the accept/cancel buttons for menu.
- Terumi. Bang.

Conflicted:
* So many characters, it makes it harder for newcomers to learn all them matchups...
* Not so mod-friendly. Because, sprites.
* The included "OST" is SONG INTERLUDE II album ( http://vgmdb.net/album/38796 ) + 2 Tsubaki themes (Condemnation Wings II and Memory of Tears II). Just to let ppl know what this "OST" actually is.
* Platinum. Mai.

First Impression (Actual Review will follow later): Solid port with all the DLC from the console release pre-included as well as a version select, in case you really want to witness vanilla Chronophantasma Kokonoe in all her glory.

So I couldn't give myself the "Dark Flame Master" title but I learned to get over it. Let's talk about the game now.

I watched a friend of mine get reset twice by Hakumen. He got perfected.

I did an 8k curse combo on someone I've never met. He probably had a wife and kids. I cant say I felt regret at my actions.

I left a lobby because the guy didn't pick the lessons background to accomodate my ♥♥♥♥♥♥ laptop. He had a pink room.

I once saw some guy DP 20 times in a game. He dp'd on wake up, he dp'd in pressure, he dp'd in gaps, he dp'd in air, he dp'd his way through college. His opponent's last thought was "He couldn't possibly dp again right?"

I laughed when a Jin was reset into some Tager's 720. I laughed for quite a while but then I felt immeasurable guilt. Jin sucks but no one deserves this.

A guy I played with sent me a friend request but I turned him down because he was a Noel player.

I once played against an Azrael but I couldn't block some of his mixup due to the lag. I felt the salt bubbling deep within me, threatening to surface; that description sounded almost erotic.

Sigh...

Blazblue is a fast 2d fighting game developed by Mori P. CPEX is the most recent console release version of the game and the PC port is pretty good.
