They put in a lot of work, design wise. I'm impressed they did the homework on common points of dysphoriaBTW, part of that interview has Daisuke Ishiwatari confirming that Bridget was always intended to be transgender, but the timing just wasn't right when she was first created.
Nah HC is nothing like Elphelt. He just has her gun. HC is a super broken full screen zoner, imagine if elphelt's sniper rifle was insanely fast and + and you could fire it as a negative edge and it instantly tracked and locked on. Literally all he does is just shoot you repeatedly until you do something and then combos you from full screen, or goes in and confirms meterless uncharged dust (which no char can do) thanks to the way his shot works. The closest thing to this in older GGs is Justice from +R, but she had to commit more to zoning and be proactive, whereas HC can be reactive to your attempts to approach, more fun to play but way more annoying to go up against lol. Also they are using every char they have a semi-done model of from Xrd, so Elphelt should make it in eventually. Next one after Bedman? seems to be Asuka/that man though.Elphelt was my favourite in Xrd... so where is she? Though judging from how Happy Chaos seems to have similar mechanics/moves, and with this Bedman that isn't quite Bedman - I guess the odds of her returning in this installment is slim.
Anyway I did notice Strive is out on Gamepass, granted it doesn't come with the Season Passes but I might give it a spin one of these days....
