I wonder how long it's going to take BlazBlue: CS to come out in Europe.  I want to know why it's taking so long to get this game out there in Europe.  On a side note, it's neat that the game is coming to PC in Europe.

@Jeffsekai:   According to Wikipedia, CS is coming out on July 1 for consoles in Japan.  No other release dates have been mentioned as far as I know.

Well, that's pretty much the last straw for me.  There's too many other games coming at around the same time, and with a sequel/update already confirmed for Japan I had already begin to doubt my pre-order.  Now that it's delayed, I just don't care at all anymore.
 
When the game sells badly, I hope they don't blame it on lack of interest in Europe.  This should have been released years ago.

I actually thought about getting BF when the new BlazBlue was announced but its still 30$ here. According to MrJared it isnt horrible so I might still end up getting it despite the price.

@Jeffsekai:   I have Battle Fantasia and it's actually not to bad.  It's a bummer that the online is completely empty and the net code isn't that good.

@Jeffsekai:   The net code in BF makes Tekken 6 look like it has really good net code.

 Never heard of him before, not on Capcom Unity or Shoryuken anyway... "
He's not that big, just big around here. At lest I think so. =\
 
If you look at his posts hes mentioned that hes spoken to Seth Killian, and alot of the top players so he knows his stuff regardless if hes on SRK or CU.

Wait, what the fuck?  BlazBlue has the best, THE BEST net code in any recent, retail released fighting game.  In the beginning of a match, it'll lag like shit until it hits "REBEL 1; ACTION!" and then, it'll be smooth as hell.  Maybe when it does lag, it's more apparent because it's a fighting game that's heavy on the execution, but other than that, I have no idea what you're talking about.
 
Edit: Oh wait, never mind.  I'm an idiot, seeing B's in the places of F's.  :d

I keep seeing preorders for the 360/PS3 versions but nothing for the PC version. I was worried they had quietly cancelled the idea – which is a shame, since that's the platform I'd want to buy it on, preferably.

@JJOR64: Yeah, realized that and edited.  I wonder why the net code on remakes and BlazBlue is great compared to other fighting games.  I wonder ff they would need to lessen the 3D models or something when playing online to make it better...

Yo, I'm real happy for Battle Fantasia and imma let it finish, but BlazBlue had one of the best net code of all time.  One of the best net code of all time!

Well, here I think you need to know more about Jared before comparing yourself to him.  He's a huge, HUGE fighting game enthusiast and he knows his shit.  Also, he owns a Jackie Chan in Fists of Fire arcade cabinet and a trophy of the same game.

@FluxWaveZ: lol that made me giggle.  OH MY GOD YES JACKIE CHAN.
 
@TinaWood:
Oh, I meant hes meet them in real life and such cuz he live out in Cali. NorCal specially. If you ever see a NorCal stream normally Jared is running it.
 
I can see what your saying, the only reason I know about him is from the bombcast and then found him on the site etc. he's also the reason Haunts started posting a little bit a while back.

@TinaWood: Yeah, he probably owns a ton.  But heck, I dunno.  I was gonna post the Quick Look Jeff did.  Basically, the whole thing with that game is that it got popular kind of recently with some fighting game communities and people started getting competitive about it.
