Guest: Minoru Kidooka (Arc System Works President)
On this special episode of Arc Live, Mikey and fighting game commentator, James Chen, are joined by Arc System Works very own CEO and president, Minoru Kidooka. We take fan questions from Twitter and the Twitch chat and have Kidooka-san answer them. Will even see a Guilty Gear vs BlazBlue crossover game? What are his thoughts on possibly having Arc System Works develop another anime property like they did with Dragon Ball FighterZ? Would something like Avatar: The Last Airbender be a possibility? Is a hotdog a sandwich? We get his thoughts on all the important questions.
Later, we see how much Kidooka-san was trained by Tekken's own Katsuhiro Harada. Would Arc System Works president have enough skills (and even remember some moves) to go against D-Piddy in a first to 3 in Tekken? With James Chen taking his usual seat in the commentary chair, let's find out!

They'll be breaking some of the moves down, go over the new mechanics and button layout, try out combos and tech, as well as compare and contrast BlazBlue, Persona 4 Arena and Under Night In-Birth gameplay to the newly designed Cross Tag Battle system. We also giveaway some codes to Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[St].
|Mar 28, 2018||ARC Live! EP8: BlazBlue Cross Tag w/ TheBiter & Bond, Eat Beat Dead Spike-san + GIVEAWAYS!|
Guests: TheBiter and Dillon Bond
In this episode, D-Piddy is joined by two local anime fighter players, TheBiter and Dillon bond, who are mostly known for their run during Persona 4 Arena and competing in that game. They begin talking about BB:TAG, their overall thoughts and collectively go over some of the recently Arc System Works published titles.
The first game they play is Eat Beat DeadSpike-san, where all three take turns playing some of the BlazBlue themes in the rhythm game, then go straight into BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. The problem is... they ended up playing the wrong build on stream! Regardless, everyone had fun and we still gave away game codes.

We open up the show some questions we chose from Twitter and Facebook, then took some from the chat.

|Apr 18, 2019||ARC Live! EP11: BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle w/ Koefficient|
On this episode, we have anime fighting game player Koefficient joining us! Aside from competing in various fighting games, he also uses YouTube as a platform to dissect, discuss and just create content that focuses on anime fighters, with BlazBlue being his most popular series to talk about, and recently, our upcoming BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. In the first half of the episode, D-Piddy talks about Koefficient's history with fighters and what he currently thinks about BB:TAG. Then, Koefficient begins his questions that his following, and the community, want to know... and Mikey has the answers.
The second half of the episode we get D-Piddy go 1v1 against Koefficient (who will get the most wins?) and we close it off with a nice surprise from an artist!
|Apr 26, 2018||ARC Live! EP12: Guilty Gear REV2 Open Challenges w/ Cloud805 & Kizzie Kay|
Guests: Cloud805 and Kizzie Kay
We bring back Kizzie Kay and Cloud805 (who comes late due to Los Angeles traffic). In the first half of this episode, D-Piddy and Kizzie gives us our first look at Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R on the Nintendo Switch (Yuji also comes in and plays Kizzie for a bit).
Once Cloud805 finally comes, Kizzie teaches Cloud the basics of Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2, the bread and butter for Sol-Badguy, and then we throw him into the wolves and play the chatroom in open lobby matches. How does Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite do? Well... pretty good for someone who doesn't play Guilty Gear. But once Cloud is done, Kizzie, a GG REV2 champion, takes on the lobby, and the results is as you would expect (he didn't lose one match).

Well, Arc System Works' own Yuji comes in to give us a little synopsis, as well as play a little of the game's story mode!
Then on the second half of the episode, we have our guests play against members of the chatroom! Will anyone be able to beat our guests in an open battle? Let's find out!
