Frosty Faustings happened just over two weeks ago, and I had a really good time. My favorite parts were meeting up with real +R enthusiasts, people who harbor love for the older game despite the prevalence of its successor, Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN. Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R holds up amazingly well, as though it were a favorite Street Fighter game of ages past.
It’s a pretty titanic moment in my “gaming career,” in my lifetime, even — although it doesn’t feel as jarring or emotional as it sounds. Having played Guilty Gear for nearly a decade, and Accent Core, which was the latest, and longest-running game in the series (approximately 2007 until 2013), it definitely was a big deal to play the next generation Xrd -SIGN- last night.
