BlazBlue: Continuum Shift

If you're having some trouble coming down from your EVO high and you just can't spend enough time playing fighting games, then you should check out BlazBlue: Continuum Shift for a fresh take on the genre. Being a purist is all well and good, but it's a shame to limit yourself when you're talking about having fun.

A spiritual successor to the Guilty Gear franchise, Arc System Works has provided an anime-infused offensive fest alternative to the ruling king of fighting games, Street Fighter IV. Alexandra Hall has the review: 

"If you enjoyed Guilty Gear, you’ll feel at home in BlazBlue, which values offense above all else. If you’re not attacking you probably should be. The characters walk slowly but can run and air-dash with quickness, opening the door to many different attack vectors. Standard blows chain effortlessly into multiple hit combos, deemphasizing strict input execution in favor of more freeform combo creativity. That’s not to say that BlazBlue is easy, it’s just that its primary challenge doesn’t come from nailing two-frame links ala SFIV."
