I'm actually really happy about this, since it means I can buy a PS5 later now. Plus, Cary's review (link) mentioned it feeling a bit slow, so I'm hoping that's not the case when it releases. We'll see. 

Then again, I think a lot of complaints were about the online lobby and, as someone who would get creamed in any online match despite my ability to beat these single player campaigns on expert with most characters (at least in Xrd's case), I do not care about that at all. 

Anyway, I can dig waiting a bit longer for a better product.

Neat characters. I think I saw there is a story mode in the trailer?

There have been story modes since X, the second installment in the series. 

I think you can still watch the story mode from Xrd and Xrd Revelator on Arc System Works' YouTube channel. 

These games have a weirdly intricate lore for fighters and there are a TON of hard rock/heavy metal references, even in the plot details.

I've never played one of these. So it's basically a fighting game? What's it's signature mechanic/feature?

I mean, it's a pretty typical 2D fighter mechanically, but I'd say what sets this series apart is its over-the-top anime characters/designs/animations and deep devotion to hard rock and heavy metal. 

I got into it with the X2 installment in the early 2000s, but apparently it's gained a following in the competetive fighting community.

Huh, I never got a press release about a delay.  So others besides me thought the beta game was a bit slow?  I thought it was just me.

I don't know if that's the reason. You're actually the only person I saw say it was slow. I'm just speculating what they might be correcting based on what you said.

Oh don't base your knowledge just on my preview.  I'm no fighting game expert or Guilty Gear expert.  I just calls 'em how I sees 'em.

Oh, I know, but I'm so used to GG being lightning fast that I get a little worried when *anyone* says it's slow. lol

I did just edit to link your review though; sorry I didn't do that initially.
