Guilty Gear XX: Accent Core

Genres: Fighting

Guilty Gear XX: Accent Core

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core features over 20 deadly combatants and includes an alternate EX version of all the existing characters. On top of all this, the game also introduces two reinvented fighters, A.B.A. and Order-Sol, who have never been seen outside of Japan.

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core delivers a range of all-new moves, including the 'Force Break', a special move which consumes 25 per cent of the Tension Gauge when used; 'Slashback', a form of parrying with reduced block stun; 'Slip Throws'; and moves which make opponents stick briefly to walls or slide across the floor of a stage.

In addition to major gameplay changes, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core features the first major aesthetic change for the series since the original release. All voices, including that of the announcer, have been re-recorded or replaced with previously unused samples, in some cases with different actors.

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core makes maximum use of the Wii controller, allowing players to move characters with the control pad on the Nunchuk and use the Wii Remote for both simple and special attacks. Some of the less powerful attacks are mapped on the Wii Remote buttons and the special attacks are executed through both button and movement with the Nunchuk or the Wii Remote.

The final layers of polish on Guilty Gear XX Accent Core come with redesigned playable character artwork and two new music tracks, Launch Out and Keep The Flag Flying.

The final mix is a fighting masterpiece.

YAY! GUILTY GEAR IS COMING TO Wii! Lots of great game series are coming to Wii. I think I'm in heaven. And if I am, I want Dizzy to join me! (Dizzy, was first the boss of the 2nd GG game, GGX. But she later became a main hero like everyone else. She is very kind and warm hearted, and wishes to live a life of happiness. But her powers keep her away from that dream. I will root you on until your goal is accomplished Dizzy! May your journey guide you to peace and happiness).

That sounds interesting. Is it really that good? I mean, I haven't heard or seen this series.

Hey CJ, what kind of game is this I mean a shooting type or fantasy sword type? Is it Anime? Hope so!

Sonic Fan said:

It's anime, but it's a fighting game. I don't know much about it so CJ will tell you about it.

I'd be happy to Sonic Fan. *ahem* Guilty Gear is a game series that was made in 1998. It is one of the most well known and popular fighting series of them all. There are many characters in the series, my recommendations are Dizzy, May, Faust & Ky. The game also has many tubular stages as well. The series I believe has 8 games in the US (but I can't say for sure), and a few more in Japan. Guilty Gear X (the 2nd game) has 2 versions in Japan, and Guilty Gear XX (The 3rd one) has 5 versions (the 5th one being AC). Some of the actions performed are different compared to games like Street Fighter, KOF, Darkstalkers, Samurai Shodown etc. From what I know, the 2 biggest main characters are Sol Badguy & Ky Kiske. And like you already know (but don't need to), Dizzy in my case is totally recommended, but that's your choice. Anyways, that's all I'll say. If you want more information, look up Guilty Gear on Wikipedia. Anyways, hope this helped.

Guilty Gear is so awesome! Thanks for the update CJ, I appreciate it, and you seem like a hardcore GG fan! Now about the game, I am so getting this.

Rygar said:

I share CJ's love for Dizzy. It's addicting. But anyway, Guilty Gear is the ULTIMATE 2d fighter. However, you have to enjoy 2d fighting games to really get into it. The system has a very steep learning curve, and since this is its 5th modification, it can get really frustrating for new players to get involved. The characters are amazing. Each one is completely unique. No 2 characters are anything alike in design, control or personality. The soundtrack is hard rock that most fans really enjoy. If anything, even if you're a hardcore 2d fighting game fan or just really love off the wall fighting games with great visuals and music, Guilty Gear is a must. Not sure about the motion controls though.

I think I will either get this one or soul caliber. Of course the soul caliber will be 3rd person, but it is still sort of the same game-type in my mind. We'll see though.

Sonic Fan said:

Hey CJ, I have not played Guilty Gear before. I might want get this game. But I'm a beginner. So who should I be if you're a beginner?

Avatar

SonnuX said:

This is coming to the Wii!? Now I have another great reason to buy a Wii! (SSBB and now GGXAC). I love Dizzy, she's my fave and always has been. I hope the story for her in this one works out awesome.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Well. I'd say any character is okay for a beginner. I don't really know much about what's good for beginners. Just choose the character you think is best. But whatever you do, NEVER pick I-NO.

Avatar

Sonic Fan said:

Who's I-NO and why not?

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

I-NO is a very evil (and stupid) character. Her attacks aren't very interesting, she always sounds emotional when damaged and all that. Worst of all, she threatened to kill Dizzy, by pushing her off an airship 20,000 feet high in the air. And that, IS NOT TOLERABLE AT ALL! *ahem* I rest my case. Any other character other than I-NO is absolutely fine with me.

Avatar

Solid Snake said:

I rather like it if I-NO just took a magnum and shot it at the head of Dizzy. And then she'd be gone for good (evil laugh).

Avatar

Crimson Hawk said:

I just got this game, it is so cool. CJ, you were right, I-NO is stupid. I tried her once, I lost badly, but with the other characters I won (most of the time). Above all, this game is awesome!

Captain Jamesman said:

Solid snake I oughta shoot you in the head with a heavy machine gun! Your words have extremely offended me! Put up your dukes, for I'm sending you to hell.

Captain Jamesman said:

Thank you for agreeing with me CH. I can always count on you!

purify said:

I-no's just hard to play unless you have a lot of practice. I happen to play one of the best I-nos in the country on a regular basis, and let me tell you she's not lame at all. Her mixups with the Morrigan-ish dash, endless Chemical Love/dive combos and completely safe super make for quite a headache. Too bad her Force Break is kind of useless though. I play Ky, have for years.

Avatar

Solid Snake said:

Dude, it was just a joke. Sorry man. Well of course Dizzy is hotter than I-NO. And she can beat her.

Avatar

Andrew said:

Eddie is the tightest, same with faust. For beginners - pick something like sol badguy or ky, they're the easiest.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

That's much better Solid Snake. I only hate I-NO because of what she did to Dizzy. For those of you I-NO lovers who were offended to hear what I said, I'm sorry. And for those of you who are Dizzy haters, I got one thing to say, GO TO HELL! I just got the official word that this game will come out in the US this fall.

Sonic Phantom said:

Hey CJ, I got match for you. Out of these two people you like who would win: Dizzy or Nakoruru?

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Well, I can't really say for sure. I might have to say Dizzy. Her powers seem a bit overwhelming for someone like Nakoruru.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Here's a better question to answer. Who would win in a fight. Ed from EEnE, or May from Guilty Gear? I'd say it'd be equal since they both have ultimate strength.

Avatar

Fire Emblem Fan 14 said:

Well, since it's anime, I'll rent it to see how it is.

Avatar

Sonic Phantom said:

Well I don't know really. Never heard of May so I'm going to go with Ed. Despite the fact that he is mentally retarded.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

If you don't know who May is, go to Wikipedia and check up May from Guilty Gear. She's so strong, she can lift an anchor with one hand with ease.

Captain Jamesman said:

Don't try to think I'm stupid for say this, but just last night I drew a picture of Ky-Kiske fighting Rolf from EEnE. Rolf was in his Urban Ranger attire, equipped with a Saber Fish, fighting Ky. Rolf said "ROLF WILL GRILL YOUR BABYCAKES!" And Ky said "I have no clue what you said, but I won't let you beat me!". I also put Eddy saying, "STEP RIGHT UP FOLKS! IT'S A FIGHT TO REMEMBER! THE URBAN-LOSER ROLF VS THE HOLY-SISSY OF ENGLAND, KY! ONLY 25z!". I also put a boy Faust in the picture. If you don't know why I made Rolf say "Babycakes", the reason is because I sort of gave Ky a feminine look, because that's kind of what I do. And the z in 25z means zens. In my dream world of Metropolis, the currency is Zenny & Zens. Zens are like cents, and Zenny, you already know. Well, I just wanted you guys to know. Once I get a scanner, I'll try to put it on and let you guys see it.

Captain Jamesman said:

Call me crazy, but I just came up with another idea, well 2 actually. These ideas involve Ed from EEnE, and Baiken, the Pink haired, one armed samurai chick from Guilty Gear. One of them is, Ed is friends with Baiken, despite the fact Baiken doesn't really care. Ed went a little too far and wants to hug Baiken, but Baiken threatens to cut him in half if he layed his grubby little hands on such soft skin (you have to admit, Baiken is hot). Another idea I was thinking of is to have them swap clothes.

Avatar

Sonic Phantom said:

By Baiken you mean "BACON!".

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

I was just at camp recently, Camp Caz. While I was there, I drew this picture. In it, Ed wants to play tag, & tags Necro, Dizzy's Dark Wing. Necro get's pissed, and goes after Ed, dragging Dizzy along. I made it into a type of attack, when Ed passes along an enemy, Necro will instantly kill the enemy that get's in his way. Pretty neat huh?

Avatar

Lovely Lady said:

Um, yeah I guess. Better yet, I drew a picture with Dizzy and Ed as boyfriend and girlfriend. I love drawing characters doing strange stuff with each other. Like, I drew a picture of Mr 2 Bon Clay dancing disco with Snake, Sephiroth and Sonic.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Did you say Dizzy & Ed as Boyfriend & Girlfriend? *barfs in a barfbag* Sorry, that didn't really sound right. I got another one. Well, 3. One of them at camp, the other one back home. I drew Ryu charging up his Hadouken saying "I'M-A CHARGIN MAH LASERS", with a confused Mario & Gema along with it. Then, I drew a comic where Mario rescues Peach, again, but Bowser tries to interfere with their huggie hug. Mario gets ticked and unleashes a big blast of fire on Bowser, causing him to lose his skin & become Bowser Bones (from NSMB). Lastly, I drew a picture of Dizzy & May cosplaying Mario & Luigi. Since Dizzy looked very sexy in his outfit, Mario was disturbed and got a nose bleed, and Luigi turned into a mini-angel with shiny eyes that cried. Meaning Luigi fell in love with their costume change. I didn't do much with May though. So there you have it. Whatcha think?

Avatar

Lovely Lady said:

How about this one, I drew a comic of of my beloved hero Sonic going on a date with Dizzy. Then Amy comes barging and she and Dizzy fight it off for Sonic's love. Sonic then shrugs and runs off leaving them to fighting. Amy and Dizzy looked and they noticed Sonic left so they went to Zelda and together they form "Sonic's Angels" (which is Charlie's Angels), and Sonic is Charlie. He gives them their mission to go to Bowser's castle and save Ed, Edd, and Eddy. When they get there, Bowser confronts them and blows fire but misses all three. Amy uses her hammer and pounds Bowser in the stomach while Zelda and Dizzy go save EEnE. They save them and (I put them with the girls), Ed goes out with Dizzy, Double D goes out with Amy and Eddy goes out with Zelda. You like it?

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Not too shabby. Nice work! Lemme think of something for a while. But why would Amy date Double Dee? I thought Sonic was her only love. I'm still sick about the Ed dating Dizzy part. I have nothing against Eddy dating Zelda though. Next thing you know, Link will barge in and slice Eddy's head off.

Christ, Guilty Gear is not an anime people. It's a 2D Fighting game (and the best at that). It has no show, no movie, no nothing. It's not an anime title, it's a GAME.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Take it easy Danny, it has anime artwork. That's what counts. Also, in Japan, they have Guilty Gear Drama CDs, or at least that's what I know.

Avatar

Logic said:

But I hope you do know, from what I've heard, Dizzy is super downgraded in Accent Core. Her power's are reduced and she's no longer a S+ rating as she was in Slash. But look forward for Testament. A new digger is for him and we get Order-Sol again, like in Slash. It'll be awesome. For the record, aren't Dizzy and Testament lovers? I've got my sources, so I think that's right if I recall.

Avatar

siaga said:

I don't think testament and dizzy are lovers. Wasn't testament a servant to justice? When sol killed justice he just follows dizzy to protect her? But yea, she isn't an S rating character any more. In accent core, eddie and testament are. They are crazy good, like eddie had an unblockable combo and testament can loop almost everything. But I don't play them, I play A.B.A an A rank character.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Oh hell no. You mean to tell me Dizzy is weaker in this game? This cannot stand! About the lovers thing, they have feelings for each other, but only as friends. Just like Mario is to Peach.

Avatar

siaga said:

Yea its to do with one of the new systems they added to the game. Like some moves will cause the person to slide on the floor and you can pick them up into the air if you run after them. It's not that she got crappier, it's that everyone else got better because of this system. Well not completely just the system, if I remember they did weaken her damage a little.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Well, just as long as they didn't give any improvements on I-NO besides her voice, I'm cool.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Oh, have you guys heard about the new 3-D Guilty Gear Adventure, Overture? I highly doubt my favorite character Dizzy will be playable, let alone in it. But if at least Ky-Kiske or May is playable, I'll still buy it.

Avatar

Sonic Phantom said:

I got a better one for you: Bridget (Guilty Gear) or Mr 2 Bon Clay?

Avatar

siaga said:

Well they did add new moves to ino. Like she has another music note fire ball thing and her force break is like one of those moves where she flies and hits you, but this one goes up into the air and takes you with her. Then she can do some combos in the air with it. But even with some improvements she is still bottom tier. For overture, so far all I know is sol and a new character named sin are playable.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Sin? Is that so? Oh well, he's not too bad either. And on the other note, GOD DAMN THAT I-NO. Doesn't Dizzy at least get any cool new skills? It's just not fair. If someone here tells me that I-NO will make a better fighter than Dizzy, then I'm going to burst in anger.

Sonic Phantom said:

I think Johnny is a pervert. Seeing as he wants female pirates on his ship.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

You've got a point there Sonic Phantom. Maybe he could be the next Johnny Bravo, but much more successful. He's able to win a girl's heart, while Bravo just gets a certain beating.

Avatar

siaga said:

Dizzy does get some new moves. Like her little ice flower thing can be controlled almost like millias bubble. Like you input a common to do the laser one while the flower is still being formed you push any other button. Then when the laser is fired the flower will do another move like the bitting one or another laser. Her force break is a red heat seeking bubble. I think that's all her moves. I didn't really get to try.

Avatar

siaga said:

Oh yea, I completely forgot. Dizzy has a secret super where she can do instant kill without going into instant kill mode. But it requires full tension and the command for it is super hard. It's like left, up, right, down without pushing diagonal for each one; then punch and hard slash together, or was it kick and slash. I don't remember, I was never able to do it but my friend did it on me. Then punch and hard slash together. If you want to find the command you have to ask people for it, it isn't posted on the command list when you push start.

Sonic Phantom said:

Better yet, those two could fight it out for the girls. Johnny or Johnny Bravo? I'm saying Johnny Bravo.
