So maybe you’ve been watching Arc System Works recent run of Guilty Gear Strive Starter Guides, you’ve picked out which character you fancy, and now you’re set to start collecting skulls, right? Well, before you start picking out background music for your highlight reel, you better be sure you have a grasp of the Guilty Gear mechanics. It ain’t Street Fighter, and Jp. HK into Cr. HK isn’t gonna wash in GG’s world.
And I should know, I’m terrible at this game.
Help is at hand for all of us. Today’s Starter Guide focuses specifically on the bread-and-butter of Guilty Gear Strive: its core mechanics. The video spotlights several offensive and defensive maneuvers that are a vital part of every Guilty Gear battle. These include Dust, Instant Block, Faultless Defense, and a complex but important GG trademark: the Roman Cancel system. It looks like a lot to take in, particularly for players who may be used to more simplistic defense strategies in titles such as Street Fighter V and Mortal Kombat 11.
