INTRO & VERSION HISTORY


Personally, I feel that BB2 is a great game, but it's almost nothing like
the original Bushido Blade.  There are definitely less moves per character
from what I've seen.  Nonetheless, I will try to have a full movelist for it
by around mid-to-late April.  The names of the moves are just descriptive,
so if there are any official names for these moves, let me know.  One more
thing: this is my first serious attempt at a FAQ, so if anyone wants to use 
any of the information here in another FAQ or guide please give me some 
credit, OK? :)

ver 0.1:  First run.  Only the general moves and katana moves are up.
ver 0.2:  Put up moves for the ninja-to.  Edited some of the katana moves.
          Put up some character-specific moves (mainly sub-weapons).
ver 0.5:  Put up moves for the claymore and naginata.  Edited a few katana 
          and ninja-to moves.  Added a few more general moves.
ver 1.0:  Put up moves for the nodachi, spear, hand gun, and rifle.  Added
          extra dashing moves.  Added information on parries, rebound attacks,
          and weapon clash.  Fixed that dumb horizontal/vertical mix-up.

-----------------------------------------------------2
KEY


O = vertical attack
X = horizontal attack
f = forward
b = back
d = down
u = up
[a], [b] = [a] then [b] (ex: f, f)
[a] + [b] = [a] and [b] at the same time (ex: f + R2)

In the stance order section:

<Character> - [Starting stance], [next stance], [last stance]
...where [Starting stance] is the stance he/she starts a match in, and [next
stance] is the stance you get when you change stance.  When you change from
the [last stance], you get the [Starting stance] again.

-----------------------------------------------------4
PARRY SYSTEM


Parries:
--------
Since there is no longer a parry button in BB2, you must learn to use the
attack buttons to parry.  The system is rather simple:

When the opponent attacks with X, hit O just before the attack connects.
When the opponent attacks with O, hit X just before the attack connects.

This will give you a blue flash, which marks a succesful parry.  However, if
you pressed the wrong attack button, you will get a green flash, which marks
a bad parry.  Usually a bad parry will require some recovery.  The
effectiveness of the parry is largely dependent of the strength of your
character plus the weight of your weapon.  For example: 

Chihiro's ninja-to parries Kannuki's claymore = long recovery, even if the
 parry was successful.
Kannuki's claymore parries Chihiro's ninja-to = no recovery, even if the
 parry was bad.

To parry a sub-weapon, press any attack before the sub-weapon hits.  To parry
a close throwing move, press O as the throw starts.


Rebound Attacks:
----------------
When an attack hits the opponent's weapon, a pink flash will appear.  When
this happens, both the attacker and the defender can follow up with a
rebound attack:

Attacker (you hit the opponent's weapon) - press O
Defender (your weapon was hit by the opponent) - press X

In the Two-sword stance, there's a slight difference:

Attacker - press O
Defender's front sword is hit - press O
Defender's back sword is hit - press X


Weapon Clash:
------------
When two attacks meet, a weapon clash will occur.
A weapon clash has 3 phases:

Neutral - both fighters are standing at eye level
Advantaged - one fighter is leaning toward the other, pushing him/her back 
Overpowering - one fighter is standing, the other crouching and being forced 
 back

In any phase, either player must hit the attack buttons more quickly than the
other in order to gain the advantage.  When one fighter is overpowered by the
other, he/she is knocked on his/her face.

In the neutral phase, either player can push back to stop the weapon clash.
In the neutral or advantaged phase, either player can hold up or down to
rotate slightly.

A weapon clash can also be initiated when one fighter dashes into a fighter
who is standing.  In this case the clash will start with the dasher having
the advantage.

STILL NEED:


Well, not much, since it's mostly done.  As usual, let me know if I missed
anything.  Also, if there are official move names I'd like to see them.  And
of course, advice for cleaning up this mess of a FAQ.  There's a lot of
redundancy here.  I have some ideas, but I'd like to hear yours.  Full credit 
will be given, of course. :)
