Guilty Gear Xrd Sign – Story Mode Analysis
Calling this article an "analysis" might be the wrong choice of word. But rather, Guilty Gear Xrd Sign’s Story Mode, being good as it is, made me think it might be worthwhile to discuss a few things I noticed while I was watching (rather than playing, since as mentioned in my main review there are no fights or battles at all. It’s more an OVA or a Visual Novel) that I found interesting, particularly in the context of how stories in fighting games work and other general dos and don’ts of writing fiction in general. Suffice to say, where BlazBlue: Chronophantasma falls down, Guilty Gear Xrd Sign rises above. But anyway, without further a-do, let’s dive in.
Be warned that there are SPOILERS in this article, starting with the second section, “Chekov’s Gunflame”. You have been warned, and, as always, what follows is just my opinions and they are not reflective of OtakuGamers UK staff members or the site as a whole.
So, let's do this.

This review comes in two parts: the main course here and a supplementary article on Guilty Gear Xrd Sign’s Story mode that will follow later in the week. This main review is spoiler free and for optimum enjoyment, I strongly suggest you stick a metal track of your choosing on in another tab, it'll help set the tone for what is to come.

2014. The year of the re-releases apparently. I don't think its been that bad to be honest. The WiiU had a strong year, there's been a lot to play on the new consoles (Ps4 passing 18 million in just over a year puts those 'Consoles are dying' stories from the previous year to bed), Nintendo announced yet another 3DS model, PSTV seen a release in the west that everyone called for but no one bought in to, #GamerGate exploded (It was going to happen at some point with the state of the mainstream press), the likes of IFI/NISa/Marvelous etc really stepped up their game and brought us plenty to play and we've had a decent year ourselves here as views have increased and more publishers work with us. Highlight of the year was finally taking the plunge and purchasing a moped though as it inspires an air of mobility freedom, its cheap to run so more money elsewhere and people serenading Grease 2's "Who's That Guy?" to me as I ride past never gets old. 2015 is looking like its going to be even better for games going forward, as multiple Japanese studios shift their focus to Playstation 4 and the usual suspects here in the west up their localisation drive to bring us more nich goodies. So lets see what I enjoyed last year..
