Autumn Games and Reverge Labs to Unleash Skullgirls in 2011; Additional Details to be Revealed at GDC

Los Angeles – Feb. 3, 2011 – Prepare for the fight of your life! Autumn Games, a premier publisher of interactive entertainment, is working with game developer Reverge Labs to develop Skullgirls, a new fast-paced 2D fighting game that puts players in control of fierce female warriors in an extraordinary Dark Deco world. The team is led by renowned fighting game champion Mike “Mike Z” Zaimont and artist Alex Ahad, whose work has appeared in many publications, including Scott Pilgrim and Lava Punch. Using advanced graphical technology never before achieved in a game of its type, Skullgirls is currently in development for a 2011 release on high-definition home consoles.

“We believe that Skullgirls has the chops to be the next big 2D fighter – it has amazing art, tight gameplay, and a rich and deep backstory,” said Jason Donnell, president and COO, Autumn Games. “Working with the talented group at Reverge Labs is an added bonus, particularly with Mike Z’s expertise in the competitive games arena and Alex Ahad’s phenomenal art style. Together we’re delivering a challenging and competitive – and really fun – game, wrapped in the convenience and easy expandability of DLC on the two leading gaming services.”

“We’re aiming to create a new take on fighting games, drawing on our own experience as competitive gamers to combine the best elements of classic fighters into something with intense action, an engaging story and the most advanced 2D fighting engine ever created,” said Richard Wyckoff, CEO, Reverge Labs. “Autumn Games is quickly making a name for itself in the industry as a publisher of fresh and exciting games and a true partner to independent game developers, and they were the ideal choice for us to partner with on Skullgirls.”

I think it's good IMO. But the combo system feels horrible to me. I just can't imagine that burst thing to evade infinites. As lolmechy said in MI, looks like they're lazy with the combo system and they want to go for the easy way to implement it.

Hah!  I was wondering if I was ever going to see this again.  An old housemate of mine worked on the sprites for the black-haired chick in OP.

EDIT: So it makes infinite combos a gameplay mechanic..?  That's a unique way to not betatest a game.

I like that they have infinite detection that doesn't stop the infinite, it just makes you aware that it's happening.

I'm nearly certain that the guy that made the sprites for Vanguard Princess worked with them. If you look at the sprites, they have that slight gradient with the highlight on the side, just like VP. Their style is more SD though.

The guy who did the sprites for VP is japanese. The ones who is doing the Skullgirl sprites is not. That alone says that it's quite improbable that they worked on this together, and impossible that they're the same person.

Sudden death is in many things with rounds, heck if you keep getting draws BB will go up to 5 rounds longer before it automatically declares Ragna the winner (even if he's not playing!), but it doesn't make as much sense in a team game with no rounds.

How about button config while loading, since that's time you can't do anything else?  :^)

Do keep in mind that we haven't even come close to announcing all the non-gameplay-related features yet, so suggestions are mostly ignored.  (^.^)

Even though BB doesn't have Sudden Death at all.
Assuming a best 2 out of 3:
-If there is a draw in Round 1 it will disregard the round entirely.
-If there is a draw in Round 2 or 3 it will set the points 1 round each. Of interesting note in Continuum Shift is that if there is a draw in this case, neither player will get their second burst available.
-If there is a draw in the extra round(Or Round 4 in this case), the match is over and both players will be declared as the loser of the match.

It's kind of deja vu for me.  My old housemate was one of the ring-ins they got to do the sprites back before they went all secretive, so I've seen all of these characters in advance.  Thing is, that was a good four years ago now, so I'd forgotten the game even existed.

If you are on your way to EVO 2011, then you want to read this:
iPLAYWINNER.com said:
If you're headed out to EVO this weekend, you might be interested to know that Skullgirls developer Reverge Labs will be dropping by and throwing not only a panel, but also a side tournament for the as-of-yet unreleased title. The panel kicks off at 12:00 PM on Friday, and the side tournament is tentatively scheduled to start around 5 PM.

There's a little more incentive to participate in the side tourney beyond having the chance to play an unreleased game, though. Reverge Labs is also throwing some prizes into the mix, with second and third place receiving a Skullgirls-themed t-shirt - the grand prize is a custom, one-of-a-kind Skullgirls arcade stick designed by the team over at Arcade-in-a-Box (http://www.aiabstore.com).

If you want a chance to win the stick, be sure to register at the Skullgirls table no later than 3 PM on Saturday. If you do plan to enter, let us know!

Some more news for the front, courtesy of iPlayWinner.com:
iPLAYWINNER.com said:
Our good friend Jesse Cortez over at Destructoid (http://www.destructoid.com/hands-on-with-parasoul-from-skullgirls-209206.phtml) had some time to sit down with Mike Z at EVO and try out one of Skullgirls newly announced characters Parasoul. He gives a great break down of her playstyle, relating many of her attacks to characters in other games to give readers a better idea what she is all about. Check out a small excerpt after the break and read the rest by clicking here (http://www.destructoid.com/hands-on-with-parasoul-from-skullgirls-209206.phtml).

 

 

Her special moves can be divided into two types. The first involves the use of her umbrella, which releases napalm grenades that travel in an arc dictated by how long you hold the button down. If you played as Cable from Marvel vs. Capcom 2, you should be familiar with this system. What I found interesting is that the Skullgirls team used EVO as a play-test and actually changed how these grenades worked based on what they saw at the convention. Therefore, the way to set off these grenades is still under development, but it's impressive that they are relying on actual gamer play-testing to decide on the final move set.

Original gameplay design and original rules like infinite prevention and unblockable assist setup - CHECK
Original or cool character design - Eh... I guess CHECK
Good HUD thematic - CHECK (Much better than in previous versions)
Good voice acting - CHECK (Even if I hate some cliche phrases like the one in Cerebella)
Doujin or MVC style gameplay - CHECK
Cosplay palettes - CHECK
ZOMG training mode features - CHECK
FLUID animations - CHECK

Then... can someone tell me why the fuck I dont like the game? I just can't get over the style the game has. It's really sad because this has like... every single little detail no other game adds in a normal basis like configurable controls in character select screen, savestates for training mode, characters DON'T repeat phrases or cut a previous one while blocking... I wish I can get over the drawing style and actually enjoy the game D:

I also still feel like the hitsparks feel pretty weak but that's one of the minor inconveniences the game has IMO.

In that case that's all in the gimmick of the game. The hats and the fact that it's an all female fighter (so far) so generally the artists want the women to look hentai-worthy enough to sell the game on sex appeal alone. The character designs are as good as it gets though for a female fighter, much more diverse than the typical female designs, and those that are cliche have a spin on them that brings them out from the rest. I think it's a very western style of 2D art that people don't appreciate anymore, and I like it. It also runs at 60 FPS so I'm certain the game will be pretty when it comes out.

Skullgirls developers know people will complain if their game isn't offensive enough so they put in broken concepts that make the game artificially more exciting. I think Mike Z said something like that on SRK.

She has a few palettes that have glasses, but I don't think that's the case in the latest video (can't watch it now).

Now that I double checked, it's P1's Parasoul who has glasses

basically, her storyline is that she got cutup in pieces but she can now control them.
Her head works like donovan Sword or dboo puppet, it remains when she tags out and when she tags in she can attack with it imediately

she has a uppercut type kick that if she presses another kick while doing it, makes her fly upward after it to follow whoever she hit.

she is a rekka type character with low and high attacks

Her level 3 makes her body explode and reform in the head's position.

lame graphics from 1996
Actually it's fluid hand drawn animation with state-of-the-art color sepparation, vectorized lineart, all with a very clear Art Direction ... which is purposefully made to look like cheap american anime fanservice (aka not the real thing) <-- For me, this is where it falls apart.

I feel like it's a wasted opportunity to make a great game. The detail and ideas implemented like the infinite prevention, awesome music, interactive tutorials, being able to configure the controls practically anytime, stuff specially created for tournaments, etc. Kinda feels like you SHOULD like the game but THEN you see the super fluid animation and... then you realize the drawing style is just damn lame for most of the people...

Mike Z already said he can do stuff to make his system more appealing but he can't do anything about the drawing style, is love it or hate it. And I damn hate it...

@Edtion: That's just a palette template to submit your creations. The game's style is OBVIOUSLY the same. Do you really think they will redraw every single animation NOW with that style? So close to release? A bit of logic please...

I agree absolutly about rednavis`s opinion about the game and the wasted potential thing

At the first sight it looked guilty gear or darkstalkers similar and i loved especially the latter of the two, but than this concept of uh..just..or mostly girls..and than this drawing style..and the characters itself are something i seriously cant take serious

I will try it if there will be a demo because videos and infos are one thing but to really judge about a game you need to play it of course.

People are stupid and can't find something wrong with the game so they use non-existant points to hate on it. The graphical style is fine, it's top-notch. The characters are fine, albeit overly sexualized (If that's a word.), and I don't usually like all-female fighters. The game is appealing to everything people complain about nowadays, "*insert FG here* is too slow.", "*insert FG here* is a sausage fest.*", "*insert FG here* is too scrub friendly.", so the developers finally make a game to answer these people's prayers, and then it gets bashed. WTF.

It's a fighting game. Graphics have very little to do with the quality of the game. Plus, it's not very much different from other graphical styles, and it's a much more common graphical style to the casual eye. Alot of cartoons and stuff have that kind of style. Not only that, but the character designs in Skullgirls are cool because they are different. They aren't very common character designs, and are far better than the run-of-the-mill character designs that people seem to enjoy. It's crazy and wacky, and it has better designs than Arcana Heart or Guilty Gear.

It doesn't invalidate his post, because that's common knowledge. And it's not a "turd", I think people are just going off on this game just because it isn't sprites, although sprites are supposed to mimic real art.

I say this simply because over-exaggerated body parts and wacky designs like this are usually expressed in sprites and not actual drawn art. Though I think the art is better because it's not drawn to realistic proportions

I don't see anything wrong with this game ether and it has something that is missing in many fighting games originality and SkullGirls has it! Graphics are not everything presentation is important but if you neglect other things it can all fall apart!  The most important thing is how it plays! Play the game first before making your judgement maybe it's the best fighting game ever!

If you have something you don't like or want to add tell them about it at least they are willing to listen!

If I have a problem with a game I am willing to tell them about it!

Someone needs to sneak into videoman's house one night, find his computer, and chisel out the ! key.  It'd make him far less irritating, and people might actually pay attention if he brings up a valid point.

Back on topic: I really like this game I has all the things I want in a fighting game: A great cast of characters and great fighting system that lets you do want you want with any restrictions with no comeback! This game might be the most new original fighting game ever and I'll be glad to be looking forward to it!

Bunch of features.  Anti-infinite burst looks nice, but has it been detailed exactly how this works yet?  If they stick with the only-available-after-ten-hits I have to ask what the point is against characters like Cerebella where you're already dead before you get a chance to burst the infinite.  Really digging the custom assists, though.

They explained it before. The game picks up if the combo is an infinite or not as the combo goes on. It doesn't stop the infinite until the game is absolutely sure that the combo is an infinite, and then that's when you burst. They did this because they didn't want to include an overly harsh damage dampener or hit stun deterioration because people often dislike them. I can see your point about the Cerebella deal but I don't think she'll have many infinites anyway, ofc if she does then you probably won't ever be able to use 3 characters on her, maybe 2.

Graphics over gameplay? Quite a perplexing statement. I'v been following the gameplay for several monthes now. I'v read pretty much everything Mike Z has said in the Q&A srk thread about the fine details of the gameplay. And I'v watched many streams to see both casual players and tourney pro's alike praise it. Honestly, the attention to detail and creativity in the gameplay department astounds me.

And I assure you, I have very little taste for underground music.

But that's ok. I'd be happy to have a civil conversation about the game. And I assure you, I won't start insulting you if you disagree with me. So tell me, why exactly do you think they are putting graphics over gameplay?

By the way, I don't like double posting, but I just wanted to say that after thinking it over, I apologize for what I said earlier. I don't mean to insult Marvel 3 or those who play it. I just wanted to point out how absurd it is to not do any research on a game and then point to one character and say "that's the only interesting thing about the game".

Anyway, I want this game to succeed, for all the care and thought that is being put into it. And so I don't want to be a jerk about it and alienate marvel 3 fans by making this game out to be some sort of hardcore hipster thing. It seems like 99% of the people who don't like this game have done absolutely 0 research on it, and have based their opinions of it on several seconds of blurry gameplay footage on a slower, non finalized pre alpha build. I wish more people would open their minds and do some research to find out that the game is actually really good. It's well designed, innovative, and fast (the ten percent speed boost went along way. It's like on turbo mode now).


Anyway, to actually contribute to the thread, apparently a new character or something (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=32858637&postcount=59) is going to be revealed on black friday. Also, apparently the new character is further along in development then painwheel (http://neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=32799087&postcount=19)

I can't help but kinda agree with 'Squire' here on some aspects.  What is so bad about this game that it turns a surprisingly amount of people off?  From what I've read, seen, and heard, it has a lot going for it. 

- It's played at 'Wed. Night Fights' which, for all intent purposes, is a beta testing ground to see what might be broken, etc. 
- It's quality 2-D with a lot of animation and work being put in
- The 'graphics over gameplay' holds no merit what-so-ever as Mike Z is helping in this.  From what I'm hearing from those 'Fights' the gameplay is a little MvC1 and Guilty Gear X.  It looks nice, but gameplay is a heavy factor, so it's strong on both accounts
- It's not Capcom, SNK, Namco, whatever, but an outside company trying to make a good fighting game.
- Personal preference, but I like how the characters look so far.  Peacock is a great nod to the golden age of cartoons, but I'll never play her due to her keep-away tactics.  I'm mostly interested in Parasoul, Ms. Fortune, and Cerebella.  It seems that a lot of hate is from how the designs look.

I, myself, am looking forward to this, and I'm not the biggest fan of MvC or GG type gameplay.

My reasons why i dislike this game so far are simply that it is full of girls.

Some of my favourite characters from fighting games of all times are freaks like Baraka from MK, Geese Howard and Billy Kane from Fatal Fury and B Orchid from Killer Instinct

In this game i see girls. A catgirl  which can throw her head. A weak looking one with a hat with big arms. Thats  just not my thing, absolutly not, call it sexsistic or whatever but i like my girls in fighting games either looking sexy or goddamn fierce

The next is the..yarrrr graphics.

For me they look like they have freaky anime characters put in western like comic style, something like that..and i just dislike it.

Gameplay wise the game looks good, it might even be very good. Thats still not reason enough  for me to buy it. Alone already because a lot other great fighting games were ust released or getting released next year (SCV februar, SFXT march)

1: They are going to have male characters as dlc. Some of them look pretty tough, from the character sketches.

2: Give the art style a chance. I didn't like it either, but it has really grown on me. First of all, the game suffers from what I like to call "Blazblue syndrome", that being, the characters have meh portaits but in their sprites and animations, they look amazing.

3: From what I'v learned about this game so far, my honest oppinion is that this game is gonna blow all those games out of the water.

Well the game is only going to be 15 dollars. That's like, what, 1/4th as much as they are? I advise you to learn more about the gameplay. Sfxt, Umvc3, Sc5, I don't think any of them can match the sheer amount of thought and dedication that is being poured into each and every character in this game.

This is a false argument. A fighter with stick figures would be unplayable because you wouldn't be able to tell what the fuck is going on. The ratio of female to male characters, whether they are drawn realistically or cartoony, should have NOTHING to do with one enjoyment of the gameplay.

I thought we were talking about sprites. Oh well.

Ok then. I like Marvel Vs Capcom 2. It is one of my favorite games of all time. I would STILL play it religiously if every character was a stick figure. As long as you could somehow tell the overheads apart from the lows and whatnot, I would still play it.

Presentation. does not. matter. as much. as gameplay.

Let me give you example with mahvel again.

When I first started playing the series. I did not like super heroes. at all. But I played the games. Why? Because the gameplay made it worth it. I compartmentalized the character designs and the gameplay. You could have switched Iron Man with Sol Badguy or a stick figure and it wouldn't have made any difference. I played it for the gameplay.

And guess what? After a while, the super heroes started to grow on me. And now I'm tottaly cool with super heroism and all those wacky costumes.

So there.

Not liking the presentation is a valid reason for not liking a game.  If you're playing a game, and you're constantly thinking "I hate these characters and I hate the design and I hate this music" and so on, it's not going to be easy to force yourself to get over all of the off-putting stuff just to experience the gameplay.  It's not a matter of graphics vs gameplay.  Aesthetic and presentation are just as important to a game as how it plays.

I hated super heroes. I thought they looked stupid. I loved the gameplay in Mahvel and so I played it.

Your argument is invalid.

No it's not valid. The only valid use of that logic is if every single screen of the gameplay is a pile of vaginas and tentacles and you litterally can't look at it without vomiting.

Not liking the presentation is a valid reason for not liking a game.  If you're playing a game, and you're constantly thinking "I hate these characters and I hate the design and I hate this music" and so on, it's not going to be easy to force yourself to get over all of the off-putting stuff just to experience the gameplay.  It's not a matter of graphics vs gameplay.  Aesthetic and presentation are just as important to a game as how it plays.

I hated super heroes. I thought they looked stupid. I loved the gameplay in Mahvel and so I played it.

Your argument is invalid.

I still hate the ultra generic loli's in Arcana Heart, but I still like that game for it's gameplay.

Well, that's fine and fucking dandy for you, but you don't speak for the world at large.  I, for one, am not going to force myself to sit through something I know I won't enjoy just for the sake of playing something.  You can spout "your argument is invalid" like a shitty image macro all you like, but just because you don't care about aesthetic doesn't mean nobody is allowed to.

Most of my friends feel the same way about this as I do. To tell the truth, I didn't know there were people out there who held this oppinion till I came to this thread lol.

Alrighty then, have fun on missing out on all the excitement and strategy of all the great fighting games you'll miss over the years. I can't imagine the sadness of those who miss out on Street Fighter because they don't like big burly karate men. And I can't imagine the sadness of those who miss out on Mahvel because they don't like tights clad super heroes. And I can't imagine the sadness of those who miss out on Guilty Gear because they don't like anime.

ect ect.

The swearing was kinda unnecessary. Oh well. You'll just be missing out on a lot of great games over the years then.












Also, let me again stress that the aeshetics in this game will grow on you if you just give it a chance dayum.

Yeah, they've been talking about Dlc a lot. Not just for characters but other features as well. They appear to plan to really be active throughout the games life and to continue putting out new characters "as long as we get payed to do so". I imagine if the game didn't have dlc, it would be delayed like another year.

Actually, a while back Mike Z said he was interested in putting in a 4 player mode similar to the version of mvc1 where 4 people could play. Not a priority but just stuff they were toying with for the future.

I seem to recall it being said they'd be cheaper then Capcoms dlc. I can see where your coming from though. Also, I highly doubt the game is gonna have 20-30 cast members.

The only thing that's blatantly false is the 3v3 matches taking forever. THE SAME EXACT THING happend for Mvc3 when it was still in development. People don't know their bnb's yet, nor how to extensively play.

I meant the Timer seems really slow so if you end up in a run away match it drags on.

Hmmm. I hadn't really thought of that. I haven't seen anyone play run away (zoning, but I haven't seen run away). I don't think run away will be that big a problem in this game because it doesn't have mvc2 style super jumps, and most of the rushdown characters have some pretty safe and strong mix ups.

We'll have to wait and see on that one, but generally I haven't had much of a problem about timers being too long or too short with games in the past.



Also, something I wanted to adress about dlc in that post. This isn't like Capcom where the dlc is already on the disc, and they are just trying to make more money. The release date is drawing near after the delay, and they simply don't have time to draw any more sprites. If they did, the game would be delayed to late 2012 or early 2013. And it's not like this is Capcom we're talking about where they can afford to hire another thousand animators and get it done quicker, they have a budget to work under. I think this kind of dlc plan of "we want to add this stuff, but we don't have time or money to do it now so we'll do it later when we have the time and the money to properly accomplish it rather then rush the content out prematurely or delay the game another ten years" as opposed to the usual "let's just release a bunch of hats and charge people 7 dollars LOL"

Its understandable that they are on a budget and do not have the time or resources to do as they planned. Things happen, and I would feel silly holding that against them.

 It sort of reminds me of the dilemmas that some Mugen contributors have when it comes to them releasing their creations.

The talk on how they fine tuned the "heavy" feeling was neat, but I was amused that they implemented the UI thingy that lets you see who's winning. 'Cause a month or two ago someone suggested that to Mike Z on the Skullgirls Srk forum, and apparently he implemented by popular demand. Ha.

Also lol tournament with 1000 dollar prize. I would love to enter that, though this game has gotten so much play already (I can't think of any game that has gotten more prerelease play) that I doubt a newcomer would last long.

It's so nice to see them finally find a way to implement the gameplay uses of having defeated players remain on screen rather then fade out. That actually sounds really interesting. I really like the idea of having that as an option.

Yeah. But having it in a tag team fighter sounds interesting. And I don't see how five bars for 25% health could be over powered in any way. Especially on a 3 man team where 25% would equal like 2 or 3 random hits or one combo.

It's nice though to hear this because they'v been hinting at how there would be characters who would take advantage of dead bodies remaining on screen since that feature was first mentioned, and I was starting to think we wouldn't see something so experimental and unorthodox till post release dlc, but I guess I was wrong.

7. Final character will make 8.

They will be adding more through dlc, like Blazblue, though it'll probably be cheaper.

Also, contrary to one argument against the game, they do not intend on making 40+ characters and charging you for them all. Word of god says if they find themselves exceeding a standard roster size and approaching Mvc2 size, they'll just make Skullgirls 2.

I was expecting the Maid/Vacuum/Skeleton character to be the last reveal and the mimic character to an unplayable boss. I guess she was cut and the idea of a game with such a thin roster having an unplayable boss would have been unlikely.

Too be fair, I'm thinking that the maid will be the unplayable boss, but will become playable later as dlc.

Apparently, no one was truly cut, they decided on all the characters from the moment they decided on 8 characters for initial release.

I seem to recall it being said that Marin is not a Skullgirls character, but rather another sketch for something else that Ahad was working on.

Then again Panzerfaust was supposed to be that way too but by popular demand he was made canon in Skullgirls. So who knows.

Post by: Squire Grooktook on February 25, 2012, 12:04:09 PM
Off the top of my head


-Among the many character sketches and ideas you have posted on the internet, how many of them are intended for Skullgirls? And would you be willing to bring characters intended for other projects over into Skullgirls canon by popular demand?

-Is Marin intended to be a Skullgirls character?

-What were some of the inspirations for Double's design? Video game bosses? Horror movies? Lovecraft? H.R Giger?

-What were some of the inspirations for Ms.Fortune? Were there any characters in particular that helped influence her design?


First 2 are probably the most important.

I'll edit or post anything else I think of.

Okay, ask him why he keeps reusing the one eyed thing, and why most characters( and character art)  are amputees.
Ask him how he feels about people claiming the characters are fetishistic and if he had specific groups in mind when designing some of them.

Ask him to describe each character in three our four words that demonstrate the essential of said characters.

Ask him if, being the lead artist and designer, if there were chars that he was told to include as opposed to chars he wanted to design.

He's the artist, not the designer/developer/whatever

Besides Mike Z already said yes to Pc version. It will probably be Steam too.


Okay, ask him why he keeps reusing the one eyed thing, and why most characters( and character art)  are amputees.
Because it's awesome (http://pub.tenkuu.net/Images/2009/pchat_30_spacehitman.jpg)

Ask him how he feels about people claiming the characters are fetishistic and if he had specific groups in mind when designing some of them.
He already wrote like 5 paragraphs on the fanservice. Bringing up more of that stupid bullshit would be beating a dead horse. It would also be a dead give away that the person asking hasn't been following the game.

Ask him if, being the lead artist and designer, if there were chars that he was told to include as opposed to chars he wanted to design.

No need. This has pretty much been answered. ALL the characters in the game were created before Alex and Mike actually got together. They were redesigned slightly, but nothing too big.

I suppose you could ask the basis for which of the 8 characters were included. I believe they were all determined the minute it was decided that 8 would be the limit.


*edit*

ANYONE who thinks that this games characters are the product of true fetishism needs to go look up what a fucking fetish actually is. And while your at it, make note to never play Darkstalkers or watch an anime because that will cause your penis to explode with righteous indignation.

its an interview, its meant to introduce people to something not go "Oh everyone knows everything about you, so lets talk about whats your favorite band!" The communities I visit have been singing about how skullgirls is dead on arrival, I think that a few questions about that would be interesting.

Not if he has 5 paragraphs on his deviant art homepage about it for all to see, as well as ten billion pages of discussion on every single forum in existence.

Also, I don't know what communities you visit, but I haven't heard anything of the sort from any of the many places I'v visited for fighting games. Srk and Dustloop have so much fucking hype (probably helps that most of the people there have already played it) that they could probably make the game a success on their own if they wanted to.

*edit*

Also dead on arrival is still a stupid question. He's the artist, not the designer/director/programmer/marketer.


Ps: the chars are still over designed. I dont even dislike the animation style and I can see that. several of the designs are way too busy, save some like painwheel.
Well that's your opinion mate, and I respect it even if I disagree. But that's not what I was talking about. I'm saying, anyone who thinks there's a single "fetish" in Skullgirls, doesn't know what a fetish is. An anime schoolgirl or a nurse is not a fucking fetish. It's a trope or a cliche. Of course, anything can become a fetish if it's obsessed over, but one character design based on a pretty common trope/cliche does not make an obsession.

Yes I have. However, when I see a girl whose icon is an inverted cross (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_of_St._Peter), which also wields a weapon called KRIEG (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krieg) my first thought isn't femme fatale, it's black metal chick.

Fair enough, but the art deco and film motifs, along with the way she dresses and conducts herself (far too lady like)is definitely modeled after femme fatale style. Black metal chick wouldn't be so polite, and I don't see one wearing a fuzzy sweater or skirt either.

And Painwheel is far more metal.

Also, Krieg is not a black metal reference, but part of a recurring biblical motif in the game. All the living weapons have biblical references for names. Parasoul has Krieg, and her sister has Hungaren. This makes two of the four horsemen of the apocalypse (War and Famine). Fillia's parasite is Samson. Venus has Abbadon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbadon). Squigly has Leviathan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leviathan). There was also a few sketches for an underground ruin stage called Golgotha, but they may have dropped that (though someone from Reverge says they have a final boss stage yet to be revealed).

On the other hand, the more mechanical weapons have mythological references. Painwheel's helicopter blades are called the Buer Drive (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buer_(demon)), as well as being infused with Gae Bolga (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gae_Bolga) parasites. While Peacock is merged with the Argus System (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argus_Panoptes).

Post by: Foobs on March 14, 2012, 04:09:29 AM
Oh, didn't know that. I just saw her and immediately associated the icon and weapon name. No idea that the biblical names were a recurring element for multiple members of the cast, That's why I thought they were metal references and exclusive to Parasoul.

Seeing as how Yoshinori Ono and Daisuke Ishiwatari are both on record as saying they're looking forward to the release of Skullgirls, along with *insert giant laundry list of J Wong and other tournament players who said it was amazingly fun here*. It seems to me the punch line is that your only reason for disliking the game is the art style. But you simply aren't man enough to admit it.

Oh by the way, if you try to write that "it's just a mash up of different game elements" bullshit excuse again, I will copy and paste a 5 paragraph speech on why it is neither unoriginal nor "mashed up".

Yeah see this is what I meant on you being overprotective of this shit. You don't see me going "YOU CANT SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUR MAHVEL OR X TEKKEN OR ILL PUT YOU ON BLAST."
So you're saying that if I were to go into the SfXt and Mvc3 threads, AGAIN, and start another 3 pages flame war over those games, that you and others wouldn't say to yourself "wow what a douchebag"?

If so, I'll have to keep in mind that in mind for the future.

I would but it would lead to pages of me shitting on the game and Squire being over defensive about it and somehow bringing Capcom into the picture so i'd rather not.
While I don't mind it when people have a certain opinion, it gets really fucking tiring when they post in a thread just to shit on a certain game on a constant basis.
Squire Grooktook is pretty defensive, yes; but he's been rather informative too. Also that doesn't mean you have the excuse to be a douchebag

Personally, I don't mind the art style (Even though, ironically enough, I hate fanservice), and I'll wait until I can actually play the game to judge the gameplay (And a friend is working on the project cleaning animations)

The joke is the game XDDDDddddddd
Yeah, pretty much this.
I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic.

To be fair, my defensiveness is how I am with all the games I enjoy. Whenever I see someone say Marvel 2 is shit, I make sure to tell them they have no idea what they are talking about in no uncertain terms. I would react the same way if someone here were to say that The Binding of Isaac is a bad game.

No, more like you just leave the thread every time someone actually starts talking about the gameplay in depth. Ironically, the above is pretty much your whole strategy for "shitting on the game"

Oh please, I'm fine with the game outside of the drawing style, which I despise, and lack of impact in the sounds/FX. Heck I'm thinking about buying it for steam nowadays if it gets some little discount (I'm fine with 10%, like Mortal Kombat Kollection did).

Gameplay is fine I guess, I mean I'm not going to ask for a ZOMG revolutionary game everytime a new FG IP appears and all the games share things nowadays. Saying this game is a copy of MVC is like saying Blazblue is the same as Melty Blood just because both have double jumps, air dashes and ABC chains.

True. But it contradicts your "the game is shit" stance. If you're only concerned about whether you like it, and don't care what the rest of the world thinks (including the guy who made your favorite games apparently), then stop trying to convince the entire world the game is shit when it's obviously not.

Almost everyone who has played the game thinks it's fun.

Random people from srk and dust loop.

Tourney players.

Fgc celebrities.

Actual game designers.

They all think it's fun. If you don't, that's cool. But please stop bitching about it and trying to convince everyone it's shit. Maybe even try to *GASP* respect the opinions of people who like it. Which is what I'v been trying to do with games I don't like as of late.


No it's because you repeat the same shit even though I do argue it so there's no fucking point.
I said the same thing several times because you never answered or responded to it in the first place. Nor did you say anything different. You just left.

Again, the hilarious irony is that your above statement is a perfect descriptor about your own actions

In the Mi thread, You bitched about the art style and then brought up your "gameplay looks like it took stuff from other games" bullshit, and left when I explained the history of innovation in Capcom and Arcsys.

In the tourney watch thread, You bitched about the art style and then brought up your "gameplay looks like it took stuff from other games" bullshit, and left when I rephrased my previous statement.

Every fucking post you make about the game is either about the art style or some bullshit about how it looks like a "mash up". This is the reason I was hoping everyone would just ignore your posts and you wouldn't respond, because it's a waste talking to you. No matter what I say to your stupid arguments, you'll just leave the thread, AND SAY THE EXACT FUCKING THING NEXT TIME LIKE I NEVER RESPONDED. This would be one thing if I or others was hounding you about the game and trying to convince you to buy it. But almost every time, with the exception of the Mvc3 thread, it's you who started talking shit in the first place.

Do you have ANYTHING else you care to say besides the usual bullshit? If so then OUT WITH IT.


It's already happened and quite honestly I don't care because those games have a fair share of problems that i'm fine to admit unlike you are with this game.
Yes, but I only did it once. You'v started arguments about this game on the tournament tracking thread, on the mi thread, almost on the fg cast thread, and now on this thread. You just won't shut up about it. I said my piece about Mvc3 and SfXT and I was done.

Also I love how in this thread you seem to be implying that I "refuse to admit my game is imperfect" when you'v basically started all these arguments by saying it's shit or "a joke" with little or no explanation.

I don't think this game is going to be perfect. I think it's going to be fun. And in the end that's all I care about. I'v followed the game and how it has been designed. And it's exactly the way I'd design a game myself if I were going to make one. It sounds fun, so I'll defend it. Just like I will defend Mvc2, and Mvc1, and Vampire Savior, and all the other great games I enjoy.

Also, for the record. I do regret starting shit in the Mvc3 and SfXT threads. I believe part of that was me just taking out my disappointment/salt/whatever in how mvc3 plays on anyone who would listen.

Believe me, I have no disrespect for anyone who plays/enjoys Mvc3 or SfXt.

First, i'd like to state that you can still think a game has shit gameplay even if others think the opposite. Niggas like Flash Metroid and Ricky Ortiz said SFxT was the best shit since CvS2 but it still hated on by many. So your "it's obviously not" thing is opinion, just like my "it's shit" is.

Also, lol at you expecting me to check MI on a regular basis. And the tourney thread, TempesT said to quit arguing about it which is why I stopped, not because I fucking left.

And the only time I started this shit is on MI, and I even warned you guys what I was going to say. Hell, I didn't even fucking argue over there, I just stated my opinion and left. The tourney thread was not started by me IIRC, the FG cast thread was perfectly acceptable because you talk about rosters you like and hate which is what I did. And sorry that when I make one small comment for the first time in this thread that you and SD take it personally while everyone else can write worse shit in other threads and it's largely ignored.

Honestly both you and SD are taking my post way too fucking seriously and was not meant to pan out into this.

EDIT: You can all play this and love it if you want, I don't care really care. Just makes me think of GG fanboys when shit like this happens. [size=1pt]or was that blazblue fanboys?[/size]

That's fine. Just please stop acting like the game is an enormous joke which nobody in their right mind would take seriously. Because a lot of people who know quite a bit about fighters are taking it quite seriously.

Also, lol at you expecting me to check MI on a regular basis. And the tourney thread, TempesT said to quit arguing about it which is why I stopped, not because I fucking left.[/size]
You could have continued through pm's if you actually cared about answering me. My point is, we both apparently didn't have anything more to say. And all your reasons for not liking the game, basically come down to 2 things. That's fine, I'm not gonna try and convince you. Maybe down the road you'll change your mind, but that doesn't concern me.

And the only time I started this shit is on MI, and I even warned you guys what I was going to say. Hell, I didn't even fucking argue over there, I just stated my opinion and left.
Well, you had like 6 or so posts on there. We stopped talking because you didn't respond to the innovation stuff, and as for the art style, we basicly just said "we'll just agree to disagree"

And sorry that when I make one small comment for the first time in this thread that you and SD take it personally while everyone else can write worse shit in other threads and it's largely ignored.

Honestly both you and SD are taking my post way too fucking seriously and was not meant to pan out into this.
When I said Mvc3 was shit (again, I regret it) did I say YOU GUYS ARE TAKING IT TOO SERIOUSLY when I was accused of sucking dick among other things? No. It's only natural that people are gonna get annoyed when you walk into a thread and say something they like is shit.

When people actually like a game, and want it to thrive, they try to defend it as they can when it is attacked. As I said, I would do the same thing for Mvc2 or El Shaddai or The Binding of Isaac or whatever game in whatever genre.

They mentioned this al ong time ago, and had a lot of talk about in on srk.

It's just that they chose to focus on more essential things like bug and balance testing and whatnot. They'll be patching it in so it doesn't even matter.

Honestly, taking ten seconds to google a move list is a thousand times less of a pain in the ass then grinding arcade mode for hidden characters.
Title: Re: New 2D Fighting Game SkullGirls Coming in 2012
Post by: MDD on March 17, 2012, 10:56:01 PM
It's still pretty stupid to leave it out. Damn near every other game has the movelist on the pause screen, but why does this get to be special and not have it?

And this is not me bashing the game. If any fighting game leaves it out it's retarded.

EDIT: Oh it's gonna get patched in. Still should have been in from the get go, but it's fine I guess.

Because it's a teeny tiny company called Reverge Labs that somehow got sponsoring from Konami and doesn't have a gigantic budget like Capcom/Arcsys/Snk.

In fact, I think there's around 12 people working on the game.

Grinding for unlockable characters is still way, way, stupider.

Bug Testing > in game movesets.

Apparently, yes. Programming and installing a whole new sub-menu to the pause menu takes a lot more time then other, simpler hud related stuff. In comparison, the hit stun bars in training mode took like 20 minutes to program.

I just want to rectify something as i won't be posting in this topic again and will do so mostly because some people will be left with a  wrong impression; first I said that I would give this game a chance because a lot of people were saying the gameplay was good even though the visual are horrid (for my tastes), i had not even looked at a single gameplay video back then (then again, the visuals are horrible and I could not stand it),but this weekend I decided to stomach it and watch some gameplay videos and the gameplay does not look good at all to me, so yeah, I will be passing on this game not only because of the visuals but because of the gamelpay as well (I am with the impression that everybody who said the gameplay was good did so to be suportive of the game's creators and they did not really think so, this game not makiong it to evo made that impression stronger).

Gameplay looks perfect to me. Lots of mix ups. Creative and well designed move sets. Nice pacing. Lots of creativity.

To be fair, some people think the Mvc1 games look slow, clunky, and boring when picking it up for five seconds or watching one gameplay video. But they are still absolutely amazing in so many ways, and brilliant fighters if you have the brains to not be shallow and appreciate the depth and excitement of the gameplay over the fact that they aren't all flashy and shit like Mvc2/3.

I confess I was like this for a long time. I wouldn't touch the Mvc1 series because I thought they looked boring. That was just me being a fool. When I actually sat down and played X-Men Vs Street Fighter however, my brain exploded.

As someone who has had to write up, amend, modify, feature-creep and otherwise tend to thirty eight movesets over the past few months... no, not really.  What it is, though, is time consuming; it's effort that could be better spent elsewhere.

Note: HTML is not a programming language.

I estimate coding in movelist support into their sdk (so the designers can play with it rather than hardcoding various elements) would be 9-13 man hours of coding and testing.
The actual design and rolling out of the movelists could take considerably longer depending on how anal the design team really is.

Taking in consideration that they could implement them as being just images overlayed and showing in the pause menu, it would take far less.

They would need scrolling commands, a back and some way to show it during pause.

Yeah, I know i've been bashing the game the whole time, and I still hate the designs mind you, but i'll play the demo before I reach a final judgement on the gameplay.

Who knows, might change my mind and actually buy this. MIGHT.

My friend will be streaming this all day tomorrow. I'll post a link. We'll be playing first to tens and stuff. Anyone who wants in, let me know. I'll be posting first impressions too.

Anyway, damn, this is the first game in a while that I'm really excited to take into training mode. Just imagine, the freedom of X-Men Vs Street Fighters combo engine but without the infinites. And then you add custom assists and variable team sizes to the mix. The possibilities are endless.

I'm still more hyped for the actual classic Mahvel style gameplay though. Can't wait to Iad all over people heh.

I like how everyone keeps forgetting that this is an indie game with a tight budget. If you want an epic hand drawn animated intro, then you're just going to have buy the game and have all your friends do so. That way they'll have enough of a budget for one in Skullgirls 2.

Ok, so where pray tell are they going to find the money for an animated intro, when they've already spent it all, and have reached the release date? Would you like to personally send it to them and then start a petition for another delay so that we have have an intro better then the one Arcana Heart had?

MVC1 and everything prior was basically WOLVERINE WINS besides XvSF where everyone but Charlie was good. :V

I'm not sure if I'm incredibly angry, or that's just the sauce I just had with my spaghetti. Whatever, I'll humor you guys and talk about Mahvel just to show I wasn't talking out of my ass.

only 8 viable characters in it.
No. It had ten at the least.

Fun Fact #1: Even with 10 viable characters, Mvc2 still has a thousand times more depth then most series have in their entirety.

Fun Fact #2: Ban those 10 characters and suddenly everyone is viable. HA.

Anyone could pick that shit up, play it and have a good old time.
Ha ha ha yeah right. The game that even hardcore players are constantly quitting because it's "too hard" is easy to pick up.
MVC1 and everything prior was basically WOLVERINE WINS besides XvSF where everyone but Charlie was good. :V
Do you even know what you're talking about, or are you pulling shit out of your ass? You know FIVE characters were god tier in Xmvssf. And the top tiers were VERY close behind. Wolverine? Have you fucking seen what Iron Man and Orange Venom can do? What about Chun Li iad pressure, Strider death traps, Gambit infinites, and Mega Man countering plenty of characters despite being mid tier? And fuck man, Charly ISN'T LOW TIER IN XMVSSF. In fact he was high tier in two different tier lists.

Mc2, you're the ignoramous that said Mvc2 was all about execution. You lost the right to be taken seriously opening your mouth up about the game.

I already said a lot about those, in these same threads. I would have preferred a marvel super heroes 2 to a marvel vs capcom 3.

I'm not talking about how bad Mvc3 is. I'm talking about how GOOD the previous games were.

But to be serious now, I merely respond to anything I think is fallacious. Is 8 characters a fault? It's the result of a lack of resources. Would you rather they delayed the game another year? And how do you propose we convince Konami to give them more funding for a game that might not even be a financial success in the first place?

Also considering the custom assists mechanic, the different team sizes, and the fact that Mvc2 lived for years without any of those innovations, I don't think it will be a problem.

To be completely honest, I don't see any true "mistakes" in Sg. When I say mistakes, I'm talking about gameplay mechanics that hinder the meta game. The only thing I see is finite resources and realism. I think X-Men Vs Street Fighter is a perfect game in all but two ways: The infinites, and the inclusion of Akuma and Ken over possible more interesting characters. Remove those two, and I would see no true flaws in that game besides subjective "I don't like it because it's not my kind of thing" arguments.

If they could get BioWare to cave in and make a new ending DLC, I'm sure they can get these guys to make a new intro. Brilliant plan.

Doesn't change the fact that the intro sucked and they definitely could have done better despite their budget. They just got lazy, like when they decided to add the the infinite prevention system.




Also MvC2 was terrible and is really just one big guilty pleasure for everyone that plays it.

Are you seriously comparing FRIGGIN MASS EFFECT to Skullgirls. SERIOUSLY?

And again, they could have done better...If they delayed the game AGAIN (which would have made more people mad) and somehow pulled money out of their asses.

The Ips system is the whole POINT of the combos. It's directly inspired by the way people in the old marvel games banned infinites and only looped the ten thousand infinite combos a few times before changing them into another loop and eventually bringing it into a reset. The funny thing was, it was AMAZINGLY fun. It brought such an exhilarating sense of freedom. It was awesome. The Sg team NEVER decided to add Ips. It was the WHOLE POINT from the beginning.

And Mvc2 is one of the best fighting games ever made. It's smart, and demanding of strategy and strong fundamentals. If you think it's a guilty pleasure you are fooling yourself.

Post by: Iced on April 10, 2012, 07:24:46 AM
there are presentation flaws with skull girls, most come out of their marketing decisions.

For some examples

They shouldnt have started pulling out initial videos before starting to animate stages.

Their char videos should have had better cutting presentation put into them, the lack of proper cut presentation made it that the non fighting game fans disregarded the game with the first videos.

That intro could have reused the resources they made for the character videos, and not reused art as much, a few pieces with every char "motivation" and some more pacing would increase the build up a lot.


Having all the konami backup also means they cant really keep using the "its just an indie game" thing.
For that you might as well consider Scott pilgrim the game to be just an indie game.


You dont really need to explode into their defence everytime, a friend of mine is related to the game development and I dont defend it as strongly as you would do.

It would still require another delay. And no matter how rich Konami is, they aren't going to take chances by pumping money into something that might not even sell. With all the bullshit on the internet about hating the art style, I don't blame them honestly.

The IPS was them playtesting their build one day and finding a million infinites for every character. Then they said, "Fuck it, it's too much work to fix the combo system so it doesn't give a million infinites for everyone" so they added the IPS and said they added it cause they wanted freedom in their combos.

Go spectate Marvel Super Heroes and X-Men Vs Street Fighter sometime. Notice how they do it THE EXACT SAME WAY. And those games were cited as primary inspirations.

This post might be justified if I was trying to defend the gameplay rather then presentation. And to be fair, I wasn't even defending the presentation so much as excusing it based on realism.

Also I could defend Super Meat Boy but I have my hands full right now. Though The Binding of Isaac is ten billion times better, and I'd rather defend that.

Except the actual combo mechanics weren't broken when people used this method. The only thing broken was Magneto and Storm mix ups and maybe a few other things.

Let me just try to explain it again. This combo methods in those games, was fun. Perhaps THE funnest combo system ever. There is no way to replicate that freedom any other way.

Here, Darkflares, here's an example of my point

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDbtc0tTWeA

This is, THE most fun combo I'v ever experienced in a fighting game. Ever. And it worked because I passed up 3 different opportunities for an infinite. I understand it's hard to fathom without playing it yourself. But this kind of game has a sense of freedom and exhilaration that I have never seen anywhere else in the fighting game genre. The very prospect of having a version of this where infinites are not just banned by players but by the system itself, makes me genuinely excited to take into training mode. Pair that with the custom assists, and I'm REALLY excited to see what I can find.

Also, Desk getting past the game's infinite prevention system would further prove that that idea was absofuckinglutely retarded in the first place.
Finding a loophole would not prove that the idea is bad. It would prove that the execution is bad.

I'm sure a 100% combo will become possible. Lots of games have 100% combos with full meter and optimal positioning. Especially in 1v3 fights. Seriously, if I have 5 meters, I'v got you in the corner, I have 1 person team vs a 3 man team, and I have max execution, I would be made if I couldn't 100% someone.

You're not listening are you. The way so many people play Xmvssf, is to do just that. They intentionally loop infinite only 2-3 times then move on to the next infinite loop. It was amazingly fun. The only difference is that now the system itself bans the combos, instead of merely players banning you.

Yes but so many people in Xmvssf do this that it hardly matters. Hell, Srk did an entire tier list for the game based on this system.

The reason people stick with this, in Xmvssf, is because it's just so much fun. If somebody says screw it and does an infinite, you can just infinite them back, since the entire cast possesses several or more.

And Sg's combo system eliminates your above flaw, by the system banning it. Not just players as in Marvel.

I'm sure a 100% combo will become possible. Lots of games have 100% combos with full meter and optimal positioning. Especially in 1v3 fights. Seriously, if I have 5 meters, I'v got you in the corner, I have 1 person team vs a 3 man team, and I have max execution, I would be made if I couldn't 100% someone.

You realize that if a Legit 100% is found, it will shit all over SG's combo system and mechanics, right?
Not mechanics. I don't care even if the combo system is broken, the move sets and design are just too perfect.

And no, it depends on what kind of 100% it is. Servebot can 100% people in Mvc2. Does that make him broken? No. He and his combos would suck even in a game where everyone else is terribad.

It depends on what kind of 100% it is. Is it viable? Is it realistic? Do you have to build your entire team around it and sacrifice countless other things to do it (like you would with Bb.Hood/Juggernaut teams in Mvc2)? Is the set up viable? What size teams does it work on? Will it work on 1 person teams that have vastly more hp then 3 person teams? I could go on.

Like I said, I expect there to be 100%'s in 1v3 battles and even 2v3 battles. That's perfectly natural. It was perfectly natural and not broken at all in Mvc2 where mid and even low tier characters could create a set up into a dhc that would do 90-100%

Yes it does. MvC2 in it's entirety was a broken game to begin with.

These guys were priding themselves in their combo system. If it's broken, they practically have nothing. Custom assists are cool and unique, but they're not enough to carry this game.

Just because the person doing the infinite decides to not abuse it, doesn't mean someone else won't.
Resets, scaling, more damage means less time to wait for the clock. Unless you're a huge cock. :V

Custom assists are cool and unique, but they're not enough to carry this game.
The only thing that carries this game is the movesets, the designs and the pricetag IMHO. That's more than worth my $15.  :heart:

No the low and mid tier characters were perfectly fair.

No they are not. The combo system is just one of the innovations. The real show stopper, for me, is the move sets and the gameplay in general. Which are perfect in many of the ways old Mahvel was perfect. That alone carries the game. And the custom assists add heavily to the gameplay. In Mvc2, what assist you chose for support could completely alter the way your character plays.

Their are plenty of borked combo systems that are still fun by the way. But honestly, good combos have always been just a bonus for me. They are what you do when you land a hit, it's how you land the hit that REALLY matters. The combo system is only a selling point to me because of how many possibilities it offers in terms of teams, resets, and other such things.

There's nothing new under the sun. But honestly, I'v seen people try and fail to find a good comparison between the games cast and other characters. Ms Fortune for example. Is she Wolverine? Dahlism? Carl Clover? Eddie? Abel? Srk can't seem to decide. Others like Painwheel's relation to Sentinel are more obvious, but they are unique enough that it is not a problem (not to mention fixes many of the problems with the character).

The game is a lot like Xmvssf and the other classic marvels in that the gameplay is very fast paced, but it incorporates classic concepts of risk vs reward, versatile characters with numerous play styles, counters for every strategy, and so on. Despite how broken it is, if you look at a lot of the designs in Marvel (at least, the ones that didn't become out of control broken like Sentinel and Magneto. And even those to some extent), they are almost all incredibly well designed and clever. Except maybe some of the joke tier characters in Mvc2, but even their there is plenty of brilliance.

Parasoul is one of the best designs anyway, the soldiers make for good stuff in the intros and winposes. Most of the others are a bit overdesigned, like valentine having cross pupils and all the patterns in the one with the muscly arms hat.

I wasn't mad. Remember, at the end I blessed you and and said may the hype be with you.

Also Skullgirls is interesting if you like fast paced fighting games with very strong mix up games yet are still smart and well designed. Also limitless potential for different play styles between players thanks to the combo system, the custom team sizes, and the custom assist system.

.....was there a Skullgirls argument? And it wasn't MY fault this time? ;D

Anyway the gameplay is going to get more publicity among the non tournament/event goers once the game is out. So far most of the buzz and hype is thanks to the game being present constantly at numerous events and tournaments over the past year.

Black dahlia is fine, shes a classical super hero old time design. I liked sword puppet separation thing, but I imagine they will focus on the women before any man makes it in.

From the material Ive seen squigly and parasoul sister are likely the first dlc things.

It was implied though that the first two dlc characters would be Squigly and Umbrella. Though it was just implied, so who knows (I believe the exact words were "early dlc" take that as you will). Gbk's interview confirms that Marin ain't in ever, though.

Well, he said that Marin was a part of another project.

Q: Among the many character sketches and ideas you have posted on the internet, how many of them are intended for Skullgirls? And would you be willing to bring characters intended for other projects over into Skullgirls canon by popular demand?


A: Some are intended for Skullgirls. I don’t remember everything I wrote on LiveJournal, but usually if I said it’s for Skullgirls or put in a Skullgirls section, it’d be a potential character. However, there are a lot of non-Skullgirls characters, and the answer about bringing them into the Skullgirls canon would mostly be no. I can’t put all of my eggs into one basket, hehe.

Q: Is Marin intended to be a Skullgirls character?

A: Ah, this question. I’m glad you asked. Marin is not a Skullgirls character.

When Gbk posted this on srk, many players posted registering their dissapointment for Marin not being a possibility. Alex responded

Quote
t's pretty cool to see that there are fans of Marin in general, I hope there would support whatever project Marin ends up being in. She is for a separate idea that has been brewing on the side for some time now.

Actually, I have a handful of ideas aside from Skullgirls that I have to make sure to keep separate from Skullgirls. It's generally better that way.

Even though Panzerfaust ended up transferring, his style ended up as a better fit for Skullgirls. Marin and associated characters have generally a more cyberpunk feel in comparison, and don't fit too well in the Skullgirls setting anyway.

I hope you understand and I apologize for that m(_)m I am flattered that there are fans of Marin, and hopefully that means something involving her would be interesting to see.

Take your time.

I like the combo system. It's fluid but it actually has rules and requires execution. It's not like everything combos into everything. You actually have to learn the timing for basic stuff.

Where the game really starts to shine, is when you get the hang of your character and take it into vs mode with a friend. The rushdown is so satisfying, but at the same time it's got defense, and footsies, and whatnot.

You have to play it with friends. At first I thought it was merely good, but the game just blew me away the moment I took it out of training mode.

And no, they aren't going to be making Skullgirls 2 for a while. At least, not until all the empty spaces on the character select screen are filled up.

Damn M.Fortune is amazing. Plenty of mix ups, offense and defense, and maneuvering around the head while attacking and defending feels like playing some insane game of chess.

This game is so deep, I feel like I could lock myself in a room with it in training mode for a month and not even scratch the surface.

Game is super fun. I like the system a lot and I like how the hitstun is apparent even in light normals. Running solo Filia for the time being but I might change that later.

Hard to get good connection over here but when you do, it's great.

After sitting down and playing the game for quite some time, I can say with absolute certainty that the stages were put together very poorly and they aren't very good.
I am of course referring to the various characters in the background, it's obvious not much effort went into making/placing them.  Sometimes there's an issue with the scaling or layering but usually it's just bad.  A five frame animation is very noticably choppy when you compare it to the rest of the game.

It's out on 360 downloaded the demo: Still not a fan of the Music, Filla, Ms. Fortune and Cerebella Characters will some times revert to hit boxes, Didn't like Filla much, Cebrella is okay i guess i would use her as a second character those two weren't enough to sell me on the game though but lucky for me Chapter 3 in tutorial mode let me use Parasoul messed around with her i like how she plays guess i worried about her being a charge character for nothing i guess when i get some cash or points i'll pick the game up.
Peacock seems annoying to fight though.

No, not really. Why I say this is due to the sound of the instruments. But the composition is really nice. I'd like to hear most of the OST covered by jazz groups, that'd be absolutely amazing~
But as it sounds now, it's kinda' like a weird sort of elevator music for the most part.
Doesn't change the fact that I absolutely love this game, but needless to say I wouldn't training mode to the OST.

Thank god for custom soundtracks.

Yeah. It's not amazing as fight music. It's more for the atmosphere. I think the different stage theme's fit the stages like a glove, and really set the mood. There aren't many tracks that just rock the fuck out, though.

The best track, in my opinion, is the church theme. It wouldn't feel out of place in the best Castlevania ost's.

You kinda need someone to play it with to get a feel for the rushdown and everything. Playing the training mode alone will make it feel like a successor to Mvc1, and not the excellent game it really is.

Not in terms of gameplay, but just dickering about in training mode. The actual chains are a lot more strict though, and the air combos aren't as universal.

The game has too many influences to nail down, but Mvc is probably the biggest.

Post by: MooMaster666 on April 12, 2012, 06:37:36 AM
Personally, I didn't feel any kind of Marvel when I was playing around in training mode. Mind you, I was in training mode for almost a good 2 hours, then after that, I just fooled around in arcade mode and did story mode with peacock.

I just don't feel any kind of marvel in it at all. Yeah I understand it got influences from other games, but at the end of the day, Skullgirls just feels like its own game. Throwing out something like "Playing the training mode alone will make it feel like a successor to Mvc1" is false advertisement on your part. :P

Squire, could you please, please stop whiteknighting this game.
I mean, I love it, but the way you're going at it reminds me of why I don't like the MLP community: seemingly blind and incessant praise.
Don't ruin this.

Also Moo you would call it a successor to the Vs. games if Logan was in it and not Eddie-with-claws. :V

Honestly to me this game feels like it's all that was good about the Vs. series while being different all the same. Nothing new or innovative, but crazy, fun and clean.
It kinda' is its own thing. Even if the fuckton of references they get away with are all over the place. (THIS IS TUNA WITH BACON)

I... get a big Vampire vibe from the whole thing, actually. All of it. And that's good.

Squire, I have to agree with Shwa about the whole white knighting thing. Skullgirls is not the best thing since sliced bread. It's an okay game and it was better than I expected to be, but it's not mind blowing. I mean if you like it, then that's cool and that's all that matters, but please don't push it on people, and please don't try to defend every little thing about the game.

Also Moo you would call it a successor to the Vs. games if Logan was in it and not Eddie-with-claws. :V
Filia can suck it and plus besides, I like Peacock better anyways. I still haven't tried all the characters yet though.

Title: Re: New 2D Fighting Game SkullGirls Coming in 2012
Post by: Squire Grooktook on April 12, 2012, 07:59:02 AM
To be fair, I was just saying that the game feels a lot like Marvel. I wasn't really defending it from anyone. Plus creators did compare it to Marvel more then any other fighter while in development.

I think the game is really good, but I'm not gonna declare it to be in the pantheon of greatest fighters ever. Yet. I'll wait to see how the game grows and evolves, before I name it my all time favorite or anything like that. Until then it's just a really fun, solid, well designed game that I'll be playing a lot.

*edit*

In fact, just to show I'm not a fanatic, I'll say one complaint I have about the game. I wish it had just a teensy bit more dash momentum. Not really something that matters too much, but it would have been nice.
Title: Re: New 2D Fighting Game SkullGirls Coming in 2012

The game is solid.
My only issues with it (Other than the obvious small roster complain) are:
The stages, I totally agree with insanius.
The fact that meter doesn't carry over between rounds (As if building up meter in this game wasn't difficult enough)

Squire's white knighting is one of the main reasons I disregard this game so much.
That's a pretty fucking terrible reason.

That has nothing to do with the fact that you were turned off from the game before we even met. Like I said, you said the ips system turned you off on the first page of the Mi page. Long before I ever posted anything on the internet about the game.


Anyway, yeah, I'v been praising the game on it's first 2 days. Sue me. Obviously I'm not going to keep posting about the game praising it for it's entire life time, other then to say "yeah it's a really fun game" if someone asks me of my opinion on it. If asked to elaborate, I'd explain a bit more why I respect it.

And honestly, I will continue to defend the game if someone says something is wrong with it which I believe to be false. I don't mind people finding subjective faults in the games I like. I understand that for some people, the brokenness of the marvel series might eclipse how good the gameplay is otherwise. But that's not what I would defend. If somebody says something is wrong with the game, that I will object to because, for me something being deliberately wrong with a fighter is a lot more objective. A dragon punch being nonpunishable under all circumstances would be wrong. And although most flaws in fighters are a lot less drastic, many still have them. SO FAR, I have not encountered anything in Skullgirls that is "wrong".

This isn't just for games that I'm a fan of. I don't play Vampire Savior. I respect it. I think it's a good game. But subjectively, it's not my thing. However, if people were to start talking shit about it and saying it was flawed, I would defend the game readily. Because, in my opinion, that game is close to perfection for what it sets out to do.

If you're responding to my response to Darkflares, that's not what I'm talking about. Df is claiming that I'm the sole reason for him not being interested in the game. Even if that were a valid reason for not being interested in a game, he declared he was uninterested in the game before the first post I made on the subject. So bullshit.

And anyway, I didn't expect or say it was going to be the best fighter ever. In fact, I didn't expect it to be better then Mvc2 or Guilty Gear. I expected it to be better then most of the recent fighters, and about on par with the Mvc1 games, if you must know. So far, the game has perfectly met my expectations. But I will wait to see how the game grows and evolves before I decide if it is better or worse then those games.

Also... pushblocks not being covered through the tutorial.

That's not a gameplay flaw though. I only defend gameplay flaws. Also, while I would never excuse something that was key to competitive gameplay on the grounds of the team not having enough time or money, I would very much excuse something that was not important to it (music/tutorials/bonus modes/ect).

Oh

Well saying that right after what I said made it seem like it was a response.

But yeah, they should add that. Push blocking is important, especially because of how drastically it can effect a lot of mix up. I think they said they might be adding more stuff to the tutorial section, though I'm not sure. They left a lot of stuff to be patched in later. Hopefully they'll get around to it.

Ok. But it's still bullshit. The fact is, all my arguing didn't change your opinion about the game. At all. You were saying you didn't like it because you thought the ips showed laziness back at Mi, before we talked. You were saying that you didn't like it because of the ips when we were talking. And you were still bitching about laziness just two days ago. Nothing I have said has succeeded in altering your opinion on the game one way or the other. And honestly, that's better then actually being turned off of on a game because you don't like one fan. If I have added one more reason for you not to play the game, it's irrelevant because you already made up your mind not to play it because of several reasons long before you met me.

Honestly, if you're so much of a hipster that you'll let praise for a game, any game,  discourage you from playing it. Then that's just sad.

No offense, I still love you though.

And one last thing on the subject of excessive praise: I talk this way about all the games I like. Not just fighters, but any game I play that I feel is excellent. Which is often because I tend to be picky with what games I play. I'm an enthusiastic person, and I often do rave to friends about good games I'v recently played. Don't like enthusiasm? Too bad. Have fun on the planet of the hipsters.

Ps: And it's not like I go on raving about the games I enjoy for a month. Praise for the first few days. Big deal.

I've been fooling around with the demo some more, and I've come to realize that this game is actually a decent measure better than my initial impressions led me to believe.  Maybe it just took me some time to get used to the system or whatever, I don't know.  But I'm enjoying it a lot more now.  I still think that a lot of the aesthetic reeks of trying way too hard, but there's a lot more to enjoy here than I initially gave it credit for.

I may end up getting the full game yet, if for no other reason than that I still adore Peacock's design.

If Double's weird ending is anything to go by, all of them could be considered canon.

Despite how bare bones the story is (with a lot of things still needing to be explained), I did find it interesting enough to have me wanting to find out more especially with Filia's and Valentine's ending.

Wait, what code is that particular code supposed to be referencing?

Maybe it's too well known.  It's been used in Abobo's Big Adventure and even in a 'Cow and Boy' comic, http://www.gocomics.com/cowandboy/2012/04/12

If anything, maybe since the mirror match code is linked to a fighting game which is what this is, they figured it would make more sense.

He's not THAT protective of this game. I mean, he's got to see how incomplete it is too.
Missing vs. design for Bloody Marie
No Art gallery(I know it's coming soon)

Game is still kinda hard against certain characters no matter the difficulty.

Those are like... the only ones I can think of. first 2 are minor imo, last 2 i feel like is kinda mandatory. Those are my opinions.

The point is there are ways around it and you're incredibly ignorant for saying you're "waiting for combos to shit on the IPS" as if that proves some kind of invisible point you're trying to make about this game.

You seem to be missing the fact that Desk basically had to micromanage that combo down to the last command to make it work, and that despite the absurd amount of hits he got in he basically ran out of things to add at the end.

Yes, it did a lot of damage, but it's not an infinite. And if he'd messed up and made it into one then the IPS would have allowed for a burst.

You're not making any sense.

Title: Re: New 2D Fighting Game SkullGirls Coming in 2012
Post by: Darkflare on April 15, 2012, 01:15:13 AM
That combo was just one meter(ok, two meters but you gain one during the combo).

The code thing could be debatable, not really sure how many people really did know that code.


Actually, you know what. Everything I say about this game is most likely an idiotic remark anyway until I get some proper play time on it, so kindly disregard everything I say for now (Except the pallete 9 thing. That one's true)

I'm fine with all of these except the last one. If only because I'm not quite sure what you're saying. Are you saying the game is unbalanced and that some match ups are too brutal? If so I think one shouldn't jump to conclusions about a game in it's first week. I mean, look at day 1 Iceman in Mvc2 LOL. Or heck, year 2 Mvc2 where Blackheart jump around demons was still top tier, and nobody flew with Sentinel.

I don't know if anyone has seen this yet, but Peacock's item drop has ridiculous variety. There's one drop in particular, however, that I want to know more about. It seems to be a level 3 Drop, where Avery drops down on a steamroller, there's a super flash, and he punches it until it explodes. I managed to get it twice in training mode, but unfortunately I do not own a capture card. After I finished flipping out, It got me thinking about all of her other drops....so, how bout we compile them here?

[/quote]okay, I can hope though. But I do really like the combos system, it just takes a little getting used to. There is a way to stop infinites, but that doesn't mean you can't have long combos. The system just detects loops is all. once a loop is detected, you hit any button, and the opponent is pushed away from you. The only real problems with the game are the high loading times and the fact that there's no move list, and I guess the two-man rooms seems a little pointless. All in all it's a solid, well rounded fighter on par with the greats. (Except the story ending, that was bullshit.)

You must suck at Valentine if you can't beat Peacock. You have SO many opportunities to get in from fullscreen.
Once Peacock runs out of space she has three blatant things to rely on: shotgun against air pressure, throw and HOPING H.Shadow will cause mixup.

I would add to this stop being lazy and learn another character so you can have a decent team going. It's always going to be a pain getting in on Peacock, if you don't have an assist covering space and locking down.

Also lol at online Peacocks doing random throws as a defensive tactic.

Solo Valentine is pretty good.
You must be pretty awful, use the purple poison to maximize damage instead of going for green poison scrubby combos.

Also, WELCOME TO FIGHTING GAMES, you must be new to the concept of zoning characters.

Speaking of zoning, you should also keep in mind that you don't have to be 100% in on a zoner at all times. There's more then one zone in zoning, and your opponent cannot cover them all at the same time. For example, if you're not in immediate attack range, but close enough to punish a wiffed projectile with a jump, then you discourage your opponent from zoning you harder. Above all, be patient. Better to take chip then a full hit. And if you can't get in, then just focus on dodging projectiles and avoiding chip till an opportunity arises.

That's a neat thing about Peacock, she's a zoner but her LV3 is a follow up to her grab so you have to be careful when you're in close range.
LOL I TROLL U

Then why the hell are you whining here?

Post by: 修羅 on April 20, 2012, 03:51:57 AM
I basically explained all that shit from a Peacock player's perspective, too.
I can't use Valentine for shit but I know her potential. And I know for a fact that she builds meter like a motherfucker enough to dish moderate damage every 12 secs.
She's like the ultimate rushdown in this bitch; safe normals, awesome pokes, annoying tech, can get in from fucking fullscreen.

Nurse Mai da bes. I wish I could use her but oh well.

Also lol at online Peacocks doing random throws as a defensive tactic.
Online or off, throw after a falling j.HK is always a nice strat as you are kept safe and it gives you time to think. Peacock needs all the space she can get.
Even from just a throw break you expect, you can always bait following hits from things like fake teleport.
EDIT: Also respect the pie.

Yeah I know, but so many of them just throw out throws without seeming to understand what a throw is for. I think I got like 3 iad hits in a row on a Peacock player because she mashed Throw every time I was close.

Hey peeps  have a question:

Should I buy Skullgirls? I planned on buying some FFXIII-2 DLC....but I am interested in this game....the problem is also I don't have XBL live....

But while I can use the time to practice(mainly want to try out Valentine, I like Ninjas), I have played plenty of fighting games beforehand(namely Blazblue, Street Fighter 4 and a bit of Soul Calibur), and I was wondering how tough mastering this game is compared to those?

Execution is pretty fair. Combo system is kind of like Mvc meets Blazblue in my opinion. There's no really hard links or anything that I know of. All you have to do to combo is not mash and be aware of your inputs. Learning new combos is not so much about breaking your fingers with 1 frame links as it is drilling the many many inputs into your brain. If you can play Blazblue you can play this.
Title: Okay ALMOST everything.

The Combos in Skullgirls are extravagant, but as long as you have a good defense against people's tricks (and maybe only use 1 character teams) then basic-intermediate combos are more than enough.

I wouldn't recommend limiting yourself to a 1 person team, though. If you wanna play a solo character or two, cool. But you should start building a team ASAP so you can start learning the dynamics of assists and the multitude of new tools that come with team play.
Title: Re: Skullgirls
Post by: Cazaki on April 20, 2012, 10:07:44 PM
Personally I'd like to learn the core of the game with just one rather than throwing assists into the mix early or else I become too dependent on them or become unable to function without them. I think it should build up.

I bought this, and I must say:

+ it feels damn solid
+ looks pretty damn good
+ in depth general FG tutorials
- there's only 8 characters to choose from

It's like, even if the designs are horrible (I stand by my previous opinions, not really a fan) these guys made a commendable effort to make it accessible and at the same time serious. Will definitely play this more to get the hang of it.

Post by: Xhominid on April 24, 2012, 01:04:03 AM
I bought the game 3 days ago and played it yesterday....

My review is basically like Walt's, except the loading time for the Tutorial seems WAY too long(It felt like 15 seconds for some reason), the font doesn't work well for the tutorial stage(I had problems SEEING what it's supposed to say) and that's pretty much it.

I can hang with 8 characters, the gameplay feels extremely solid(though I had trouble doing the airdash cancel a few times), and the game feels vibrant and colorful despite it's bleak tone.

While I don't have Gold yet, I do plan on practicing when that time does come, but can anyone tell me what are the Valentine basics? And who works well with her? Because I'm still stumped because there's no trial mode to get a grip on what are some good combo tips and stuff are...

Most of her normals do extra hits the more you press them, her standing lp can do 3, her mp can do I think 8 (You only press it twice though), her HP I don't remember, her lp does 1, her mk does around 5 hits (not sure if you just wait or if you need to press it twice) and her HK can be done thrice. Using this, you can combo lp, lp, lp, mp, mp, mk, mk, (Maybe HP, but for the life of me I can't remember it) then HK, HK, HK Special, or if you're fancy you can cancel into a super or replace the HKs with her launcher and start an air combo. It may sound complicated, but that's because I'm bad at explaining things

Napalm Pillar, like all the assists, has a window of vulnerable start up coming in, but since it's a dp style move, the actual start up once it begins is invulnerable. Also you should give Double's Hornet Bomber a try too with Peacock, has very similar properties, and also acts as a mini projectile of it's own.

Also you can block coming in, it's just that it's still a very bad place to be, since you're in range of a mix up, and hitting buttons is a dangerous gambit.

Also, Roshie, are you on ps3?

Patch changes
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=38059361&postcount=3204
Quote
• EKG Flatliner only hits the point character, and goes through assists (may or may not stay).

• Cerebella's anti-air grab has larger range.

• HK Hornet Bomber no longer has invincibility and has techable knockdown.

• Peacock's teleport has 3 more frames of recovery.

• Peacock's lvl 3 is easier to input.

• Painwheel's air Blockbuster damage adjusted.

• Double's lvl 3 does less damage and has been sped up.

• Valentine's lvl 3 has been sped up and the animation can be partially skipped by holding a punch button.

• Napalm tears now scaled.

• Fortunes head now goes flying when hit in Noms.

• Excabella input on assist select is less precise.

• Green Vial time goes down on additional hits.

• IPS will now consider standing normals, crouching normals, and command normals to all be the same attack.

• Training mode options are being worked on.

• Assists now take 120% damage rather than the original 106%.

• Tech window for grabs is now increased by 3 frames.

• Tournament mode (disables achievements and returns players to controller select screen on controller unplug as well as resetting controls to default).

• Menu select screen allows you to go to the bottom selection by hitting up.

• Exit game no longer brings you to dashboard (I believe).

• Fixed some crashing bugs.

• Painwheel's Pinion Dash (down, down, K) is being changed to down, K (I believe that's the input) and activates once 4 kicks are input within 36 frames (I think that was the amount), also it's cancellable into some normals.

• Assists will have more mapping options.

• PS3 ranks altered.

• More regions.

• Working on making pause menu not appear as an option in training.

• Lobbies and additional online features will have to wait as the guy responsible for all that is working on the PC port.

There goes any hope of actually getting a match without having to sit through countless opponents declining a match because the ping isn't green or low enough in this patch.

If that's the case, I'm interested to see what you make of the DPM icon... [img width=20]http://thesaltminedotcom.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/dpm.png[/img]
The motion trail was supposed to clear that up, though; darker at the start and lighter at the end.  Looking at it here it's actually a little harder to notice at full size than it is at 20x20.  I guess it's easier to pick up on with half-circles.[img width=20]http://thesaltminedotcom.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/hcf.png[/img]

The pictures are resized firstly to be a closer match to the text size, but also to facilitate the main intent behind my having the movelists in the first place; to be a quick, accessible resource.  Compare my pages to that of SRK or Eventhubs; with those, even characters with relatively short movesets need to be scrolled through out of virtue of the massive icons, large headers or thick divisions between entries, but on the Saltmine you can load up the page, scroll down once and see the entire arsenal (or as close to as possible) in the space of one screen.  The idea being that someone hitting the lab can glance at their monitor/laptop/iPad and see as much as possible without having to reach over and scroll.

You're both right, though, the LP and LK are a pain in the ass.  If you check the URLs on these, you'll see my problem: each image I upload into Wordpress is put into folders sorted by month.  I can't replace them without having to manually change each and every instance of LP and LK across every page I've got.  That's nearly sixty pages' worth of throws, target combos, strength specific specials and supers, not to mention hellmurder inputs.  Replacing the directions would be even more torturous.

I don't know how to feel about Hornet Bomber nerfs.

I don't like how people have gotten a part of the game changed ONE MONTH into it's life span through sheer force of WHINING. If I was Mike, I would personally just say fuck the haters and give the game a little bit more time to evolve.
Title: Re: Skullgirls
Post by: Xhominid on May 23, 2012, 05:20:33 AM
I know what Mike Z was talking about with Hornet Bomber, but for me, it was WAY too free.

I mean, even with the I frames on it gone before the real nerf, it still gave you lots of pushback and good damage if it hit and it comes out quite fast.

Basically, you would HAVE to jump to avoid Bomber, but since it's easy for the opponent to throw it out, it's usually a onesided mix up....
Title: Re: Skullgirls
Post by: Squire Grooktook on May 23, 2012, 05:22:51 AM
Mike showcased some ways to get past it in his video, like push blocking through it which leads to a free dash in or iad in on the opponent.

It's not that I would object to it being removed it if it were too good. I just think people need to give it time and see how the game grows. People figured out how to PERFECTLY counter some pretty ridiculous stuff in the old Marvel games.

I was being silly.

I play all the the old Marvel games and have played Marvel 2 for about 2-3 years. So this not news to me.

Second, you misunderstand what I'm saying. Marvel generally isn't balanced (except XvS which is still broken but fairly balanced outside of Storm being god and Bison being bottom...Mvc1 is kinda okay too if I recall). BUT, over the years people have found ways to counter stuff that was LOL WHAT THE FUCK CHEAP BULLSHIT at first.

Iceman is pretty much the poster boy for this, but there's also Dr. Doom and Blackheart being thought top tier early on, and XvS Chun Li super becoming punishable once people figured out how to push block guard cancel it.

And honestly, I don't want fighters to become like Starcraft 2, getting patches every 3 monthes. Let the game grow and evolve.

New DLC colors, 3 free for each character, unknown amount otherwise. Other dlc
  colors will cost money.

Ugh Color dlc the only DLC i don't like screw ark system for starting this crap. and it just sounds like they are taking from the palette suggestion thread which had some awful colors.  Hoping they use some of their custom ones like the left and center colors in this picture i'd pay for those two.

On the contrary, if a developer can find content as unquestionably non-essential for their game to put a price tag on, and still have it be an attractive enough offer that people will eat it up, I'd say they're a damn good dev.  And tributary color schemes are the sort of thing that people are likely to eat up.

One could argue they are the smartest thing.  They don't affect gameplay, and are just for cosmetic purposes.  It is not something that is needed for the game, so if you really want it, fork over a couple bucks.

Also how long is it until fighting game devs begin to say things like more than 1 stage and two colours for each character is not essential and make the rest DLC. Things such as in game money to buy costumes and unlock things make the game more fun and having to pay for them makes me feel that companies are treating their costumers as idiots.

While we don't expect any problems, please note that all patch contents are not final, and are subject to change until the patch has been approved by Microsoft and Sony.
Skullgirls: Slightly Different Edition Patch Notes
“I have detailed files.” - Cyberdyne Systems Model 101

Non-gameplay changes:
- Unlock colors 11-13 for all characters. Enjoy your freebies!
- Improvements to online play:

    GGPO now rolls back properly instead of slowing down at moderate or high pings, increases playable ping range by quite a bit.
    Reduce the number of tiers for PS3 matchmaking from 9 to 3, and lower the ‘acceptable match’ threshold so more matches will be found for a given number of players online.
    Ranked matches online are now blind-pick, meaning you cannot see your opponent’s character choice until after choosing a stage.
    Add screen flash and notification sound when you find a match.
    Display opponent’s gamertag during a match.
    Display opponent’s chosen assist types on character select.
    Addressed the sound issues. Not all problems are fixed but overall should be much better, especially on item drops.

- Improve loading times on 360. Reorganized the entire filesystem. Hopefully it’s enough!
- Add In-Game Move Lists, now you can ignore them instead of just wishing they were there to be ignored.
- Rebalanced AI Difficulty.
- Added Tournament Mode:

    Disables granting of in-match Achievements/Trophies to prevent gameplay hiccups.
    Forces menu flow of controller select -> button config -> choose characters -> play.
    Uses default rounds and time settings regardless of current choices in the options menu.
    Disables Sparring Mode toggle.
    Allows all non-DLC colors to be used regardless of in-game unlock status.
    Returns to the controller select screen if 1p or 2p controller is unplugged at the post-match menu. (Does not do this if a controller is unplugged mid-match.)
    Forces button config whenever both players choose to return to character select.
    Is part of this complete breakfast.

- Added more Training Mode options:

    The Select/Back button can be set to either save/load state, record/playback dummy actions, or do both at once. Easily test any setup with precise positioning every time, at the touch of a button! (Hold the button down to clear the saved state or actions.)
    The dummy recording can be set to play back as a reversal. This has endless uses...figure out what is safe against Showstopper, learn to deal with reversal Napalm Pillars or opponents mashing LP or throw, etc.
    Input Display (List / Realtime Stick / Both)
    Dummy Action (Manual / Crouch / Jump)
    Blocking (Never / After First Hit / Always / First Hit Only / Random)
    Block Type (High / Low / All)
    Pushblock (Never / After Anywhere From 1 to 10 Blocked Hits)
    Throw Tech (Never / Always / After First Hit / Random)
    Ground Tech (Never / Forward / Backward / Random)
    Escape Infinite Combos (Never / After Anywhere From 1 to 10 Burstable Hits)
    Dummy Playback (Once / Repeat / As Reversal)
    Dummy Playback Side Correction: Choose whether the dummy recording is treated as relative directions (D,DB,B) or absolute directions (Down,Down-Left,Left) when the dummy changes sides. Useful for testing tech punishes or how to deal with crossups.

- Added Character Tutorials: Each character now has simple tutorials in place to teach the beginning players how to perform all of their Special and Blockbuster attacks, with some helpful tips on their use. (Note: Completing these tutorials is now a requirement for the “Sküllgirls” trophy/achievement.)
- Hitboxes displaying when switching characters is replaced by temporarily displaying 8-bit versions of the art, which is much less disruptive to gameplay.
- PAL-50 support with correct frameskip on both consoles.
- Logos at startup are now skippable on both consoles.
- Sparring Mode now saves game state when turned on, and loads it when turned off. Stop the match to check something and resume exactly where you left off! If a new match is started with Sparring Mode already on, the behavior is the same as before.
- Black-and-white super background now fades out in 8f instead of 15f, hopefully helps with determining when DHCs are allowed.
- Only the player in charge of the menu can press the Cancel button to leave the Controller Select screen for Versus and Tournament mode.
- Button config screen now counts mapping the same button or moving the cursor as an action that will keep a player’s screen open when the other player dismisses their screen.
- Button config no longer ignores button presses when another button is held. You can go as fast as you want!
- Main Menu and Training Mode now have 2-player button config, rather than just first player.
- Display chosen assist-type names on character select screen.
- In the Tutorials, move inputs are now described with button icons instead of text.

Infinite Prevention System (IPS) changes:
- IPS now counts stand and crouch moves as the “same thing”.
- IPS now counts all strengths of a given special move as the “same thing”, meaning anything with the same motion but a different strength P or K. This was already true for most characters, so now it is true for everyone. Considering how rare un-chained special moves are, this should not affect very much except specific known instances.
- IPS burst-allowed hitsparks no longer show up on anything except the point character.
- Tag-in attacks are now covered by IPS.
- All tags and DHCs now start you at the correct IPS stage when comboed into.
- IPS correctly handles 1-frame links, for example in Parasoul’s {s.LK->s.HP xx LP Tear Shot, s.LK->s.HP, tear explosion, s.LK}, the last s.LK is now correctly flagged by IPS every time.
- IPS state no longer continues across zero-frame resets. Each new combo should be completely separate.
- Without a jump-in attack, your first ground combo no longer erroneously counts as your jump-in chain. Previously, at the start of a combo the exact same ground chain could be repeated three times, but only twice if preceded by a jump-in. Now, the same chain may only be repeated twice regardless of whether you started with a jump-in.

Gameplay changes:
- 3% game speed increase (frameskip interval changed). DOES NOT AFFECT FRAME DATA / RELATIVE MOVEMENT SPEEDS / ANYTHING ELSE RELATIVE TO OTHER CHARACTERS, only player-experienced game speed.
- Increase frames-per-timer-second to offset frameskip change, time-outs still take roughly the same amount of real time.
Command normals count as the same also, so s.F+HK = cr.HK = s.HK and j.B+LK = j.LK.
- Throw tech window increased from 6f -> 10f. Grab Bag tech window is still 4f.
- All assist knockdowns that would be red bounces are now green bounces: still completely vulnerable, techable 9f after hitting the floor, vulnerable as normal if not teched. Requires better timing to OTG off random assist hits now - see MvC2.
- Add LK+HP as an additional command for Assist 1. Should help pad players.
- Add right-stick assist calls: move the right-stick up for Assist 1, move down for Assist 2. More pad-player help. Can be disabled from Button Config screen.
- Specifically disallow same-frame throw plus assist-call inputs like LP+LK+MK or LP+LK+MK+HP to prevent 1-button throw+assist macro abuse.
- Assist calls are now valid for 5f after the input is entered, similar to MvC2.
- Assist character damage taken when hit changed from 6% extra -> 20% extra.
- Assist characters are now always shown behind point characters except when grabbing someone, meaning no more invisible mixups behind large assist moves.
- Changes to prevent dead body abuse: stop time when the point character is dead; attacker gains zero meter from the act of hitting a dead point character, but dead character still gains meter by being hit; dead point characters become invincible as soon as IPS triggers on them.
- 5f input leniency added to chained normals, as well as normals and airdashes from jump/superjump/doublejump startup. You can now hit the next button 5f before your attack connects and it will come out, and you can now press buttons or input an airdash during jump startup and they will come out as if they were input on the first frame of the jump. Does not apply to throws!
- Fix assist call priority to prevent lots of weird cases of getting the wrong assist. Simultaneous inputs always win, so HK ~ LK+MP will be A1 and LK ~ HK+MP will be A2. For kara’d inputs, the input performed later will always win if they completed on the same frame, so HK~LK~MP is A1 but LK~HK~MP is A2. And lastly, calls for both are resolved for A2 (LK+MP+HK and LK+HK ~ MP) because they used to be random...but don’t do those. :^P
- Correct neutral-to-blocking transitions: changing block directions on the frame you are touched should no longer result in blocking a low attack with stand stance / blocking a high attack with crouch stance.
- All characters except Double can now cancel forward dash directly into backdash and backdash directly into forward dash. (Valentine will still get an airdash out of her ground backdash.)
- Allow PP backdashing from preblock animation. Previously when the opponent was attacking at close range B,B would backdash but B+PP would result in a normal attack. Now both will correctly backdash.
- Bug-to-feature conversion: Bursts now scale damage to 50%, plus count as one hit. ...why might this be necessary? (^.^)

Overall bugfixes:
- Player 2 DHCing at the same time as any superflash or DHC from P1 no longer freezes the game.
- Allow negative-edge inputs for DHCs.
- Snapbacks work properly vs. Cerebella’s Battle Butt.
- Fortune’s head will no longer float offscreen when she dies.
- Fix unnecessary checking for achievements after they are already granted, preventing a once-per-boot hiccup.
- Unranked Online: Player 2 picking “Change Stage” should no longer freeze on Stage Select.
- R1 no longer acts as an “OK” button on menus, hopefully allowing some nonstandard controllers to work properly.
- Pressing up-back while airborne near an attacking enemy if you have a doublejump remaining will no longer cancel doublejump startup into preblock and cause the character to wrongly fall straight to the ground.
- Forward/back jumps no longer override each other, UF~UB will now jump forward and UB~UF will jump backward. Either direction will still override a neutral jump.
- Stunt Double (alpha counter) action can no longer be overridden by pressing a button on the frame the character lands. [Whoops.]
- Floating “15” will no longer randomly appear after Unranked matches online.
- DHCing on the frame before a hit would have made contact will no longer allow the hit to connect after the DHC. ( http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm17841164 is now not possible.)
- Ground techs now use newest input if both inputs are entered during the tech window. Tweaked the early/late tech windows to make more sense, previously it was possible to input a tech *very* early and have it count as tech for the 2nd bounce but not for the 1st bounce.
- Fixed a bug where the next character could come in attacking backward after death! Conditions - opponent crosses over the corpse and is facing the wrong way, like during a jump, and the character coming in does a reversal attack on the frame they appear. Well...it's fixed! (http://www.twitch.tv/leveluplive/b/319893925?t=2h13m40s )
- Fix bug when airblocking an attack right at ground level which caused the character to land and be vulnerable during hit-stop. Removes possible corner unblockable with Death Crawl.
- Assists whiffing through the opponent (for example, an attack during a point character throw, or a throw assist during point-character-induced hitstun) no longer use up your assist call for that combo.
- Bursting correctly resets your OTG and stagger status. Previously, baiting and punishing a burst would not grant you a new OTG or allow the opponent to be staggered again if they had been staggered before.
- Everyone’s throws now face toward the opponent properly.
- Everyone’s airthrow now faces toward the opponent properly during a superjump.

---- Character specific changes ----


Cerebella:

- On the Custom Assist screen, F,D,DF,F+LP+LK gives Excellebella rather than Diamond Drop.
- Doublejump is also 360-locked, prevents accidental doublejumps when attempting jump-in supers.
- Forward dash horizontal movement starts 3f earlier, 14f startup -> 11f. As with all dashes, momentum on attacks still happens even on the first frame.
- Range on Excellebella increased slightly horizontally and downward.
- Excellebella is no longer supercancellable after the inital 4f, removing the Excellebella xx Showstopper option select.
- Tag-in causes small slide rather than regular knockdown. Still not able to combo afterward, but prevents opponent teching a raw tag and either being able to punish her on hit or ending up a full screen away. Still techable/punishable if you have already used up your OTG when you combo into it, so don’t do that.
- Air command throw properly faces the opponent.
- Merry-Go-Rilla now does correct damage as an assist, rather than half. Assist still scales the followup combo to 50%.
- Pummel Horse now hits crouching Valentine.
- s.HP/HK, c.MP/MK/HP, j.MP/MK damage lowered by 25 per hit. j.HP damage lowered by 50 (1100 -> 1050).
- j.MK hitstun 22f->19f.
- Unchained j.MP knocks back slightly less vs air, but when chained into knocks downward much faster.
- The “stop” part of run-stop no longer gives meter.
- Ground- and air-throw whiffs no longer cancel assist calls, like everyone else.
- 360 rotations now allow only 5f between valid directions, the same as every other special. Down from 7f. Helps prevent getting 360s when you meant to do QCT/QCB.

Double:

- Changes to Hornet Bomber: LK version invincible through first active frame, MK version invincible up to first active frame, HK version not invincible. All versions lose active hitbox during descent so it is easier to hit her out of it later on. Supercancel period on landing shortened from 30f->4f to match most other special moves. Landing hit-stop is still supercancellable, so the change is only noticeable on whiff.
- All QCF motions now require the full QCF, instead of just D,DF.
- Zero meter gain during Furoboros (cat heads).
- Changes to Lv3: Sped up overall; no longer invincible for the entire duration, invincibility now wears off after she turns into Filia; last hit knocks the opponent away from Double; reduced damage to make it more even with other Lv3s; recovery on block slightly longer.
- Changes to reduce the ease of hitconfirms: j.HP hitstun reduced by 5f, blockstun unchanged; s.MK(1) hitstun reduced; s.MK(1) and (2), cr.MK, s.HK slowed down by 2f each.
- Changes to Lv5: invincibility wears off as soon as you press any button to shoot or create a bomb. Rings do 2f less blockstun and have 2f longer cooldown between them, so full-screen random mashing no longer combos.
- Added missing hitboxes below her ground-impact frames so attempting low attacks to OTG won’t randomly whiff underneath her anymore.
- Fixed crumple anim to have crouch-hitstun and OTG-hitstun portions line up with everyone else's. Previously they both occurred too early in the animation for certain combos to be possible on her.
- Remove 8f of invincibility from the middle of her dash and backdash, total invincibility 13f->5f.
- Assist taunt-before-leaving stops being a physical barrier 20f earlier. It mistakenly occupied space during the part where she collapses and disappears. She is still vulnerable to hits for this 20f, but you can run through her properly now.

Filia:
- Airball and air Gregor Samson are now possible with negative-edge, and Airball correctly allows assist calls along with the move.
- Flatline DHC to Fenrir Drive vs another Filia no longer misses the rest of Fenrir.
- Hairball fixes: No longer unsafe on hit vs characters with air supers. Final hit vs. standing opponents properly combos to Gregor Samson vs everybody.
- Airball fixes: Recovery shortened, no longer unsafe on hit, still unsafe on block; can airdash-cancel the end on hit or whiff but not on block, and only with a forward dash; will always do the air version of the recovery even if Filia lands during the attack.
- j.HP and j.WP hit area extended closer to Filia’s body to prevent SFA3-style whiffs up close.
- j.WP given more vertical hit area for the same reason.
- j.HP +2f hitstun and knocks back slightly less vs. air. Blockstun unchanged, vs. ground behavior unchanged.
- j.HK hitstop on opponent increased by 3f to prevent crossup bug.
- s.HP hitbox slightly wider and extends slightly lower, it now combos in many situations where it would miss by one pixel previously (after s.MK on standing Painwheel, etc.)
- Ground- and air-throw whiffs no longer cancel assist calls, like everyone else.
- Airthrow recovery on whiff shortened to match everyone else’s.

Ms. Fortune:
- Headless Furserker Purrage now connects properly vs. crouching Painwheel and Fortune.
- A successful level 3 will prevent time-up until it finishes, as with other “cinematic” supers.
- During Omnomnom, her head will now fly away from the nearest screen edge when the move ends or is interrupted.
- Head recall now plays 9f of the loop even if the button is not held. This prevents it from being able to be used without ever picking up the head, as well as removing a ridiculous meter gain exploit. Rekka->rekka->recall cancel is still possible.
- Headless Stunt Double (alpha counter) with s.HP and c.HP no longer plays the head-attached attack, as well as having recovery longer than 1f.
- El Gato overhead attack from rekkas sped up.
- Headbutt (neutral+HP) and head slides (F/B+HP) damage equalized to 675, and all give meter equivalent to a projectile rather than a physical attack on hit.
- Screw Attack (head attack when the head is hit by her own body) damage reduced from 575->500, and gives meter equivalent to a projectile rather than a physical attack on hit.

Painwheel:
- Can no longer rev Pinion Dash for an obnoxiously long time after winning a round.
- Pinion Dash command changed to hold D+KKKKK...release D, rather than D,D+K. Can press P while revving to cancel. Custom Assist command is D+2K.
- MP/HP nail shots correctly face opponent.
- Changes to air super: Increase minimum damage to 1100, comparable to other supers; on hit only, recovers to jump state which immediately allows flight for continued pressure and prevents it from being punishable if opponent had already been OTG’d; post-flash invincibility reduced from 45f (!) to 17f.
- Death Crawl is now vulnerable to throws. Hit invincibility period unchanged.
- F+HK leniency between hits decreased by 3f, now impossible to have it un-combo by delaying too long.
- Flying upward is slower if the opponent’s point character is also rising. Her rise speed is unaffected if the opponent is standing or falling. This allows everyone’s jump to have a chance to catch her when she’s at the top of the screen, and allows one flying Painwheel to catch another, but doesn’t affect her gameplay much otherwise. Does not affect first-frame momentum for normals at all.

Parasoul:
- Tear explosions correctly scale by ratio and are affected by combo damage scaling.
- Explosion hitstun 37->36f, blockstun 19f->14f to prevent certain lockdowns, chip damage 250->150.
- Fix issue with some palettes where certain frames incorrectly showed parts of her glasses.
- Silent Scope no longer misses crouching Painwheel after MP Tear Shot.
- j.HP hitbox extended closer to Parasoul’s body to prevent whiffs up close vs airborne characters.
- j.MK +1f hitstun; held-button float moves faster forward/backward and allows another attack immediately when button is released.
- j.D+MK->j.MK is now a chain rather than a reverse-beat, meaning your first Stomp->j.MK is valid even though they count as the same move under IPS now.
- Lengthen DHC window on Motor Brigade by 8f.
- Motor Brigade now drags opponent downward on hit, allowing more of the super to connect more of the time. Hitstop on opponent increased slightly for the same reason.
- Remove erroneous 3f invincibility after the hit was already finished on Napalm Pillar.
- Blockstun on Napalm Pillar shortened by 1f to prevent strange interaction with Crimson Hunting at max distance.
- Parasoul will no longer ground-tech the wrong way if crossed up after a knockdown, for example after being hit by Death Crawl.
- Ground- and air-throw whiffs no longer cancel assist calls, like everyone else.
- Egret Charge should always cause wallbounce now. Previously it may not have, if the camera were moving too quickly.

Peacock:
- Window for inputting QCB+PP for Goodfellows (Lv3) after a successful throw widened.
- All special moves correctly face opponent, no more backward gunshots after ground-teching past the opponent. (Oops.)
- Slightly reduce meter gain for connecting with Bang shots, HP cannonball, and all Georges.
- Overall meter gain reduced to 1/3 while holding a Shadow of Impending Doom.
- Redistribute damage for Argus Agony: ~300 lower unscaled damage, same minimum damage (on average, subject to randomness).
- Lenny damage 3000->3800, chip 650->800.
- Lenny fix: DHC window is the same but it is no longer possible for a DHC to be “too early” and result in the bomb not being created. Placement and explosion timing unchanged.
- Teleport now recovers 4f more slowly, starts up 3f faster; still vulnerable for 2f at the start; able to be supercanceled 3f earlier during recovery; fake teleport startup and recovery unchanged.
- All Lv1 items will always OTG in the proper direction, towards Peacock. Accomplished by allowing the Jippo bottle to be flipped (oppiJ!). Any Lv2 and Lv3 items which always face the same direction may still knock them the wrong way as OTGs, so be careful.
- Argus Agony hitbox extended closer to Peacock, no longer whiffs up close vs standing Painwheel or vs random other close attacks.
- LP and MP Bang! hitboxes extended back toward Peacock to prevent them from whiffing up close in certain circumstances.
- LP and MP versions of Bang! carry over their specific invincibilities (LP invincible to hits, MP to throws) through the entire active portion, as opposed to just the first active frame. First 2f of both moves are still fully vulnerable.
- HP BANG! shots do 33 more chip (300 total -> 400 total, or to look at that differently, at base dmg 48 triple shots to kill by chip -> 36 now, same as Cable’s Viper Beams.)
- Item drop chip increase: Lv1 150->200, Lv2 250->300, Lv3 400->500.
- Argus Agony small lasers +2f hitstun to prevent certain patterns from allowing the opponent to recover and retaliate. Blockstun unchanged.
- Airthrow recovery on hit shortened to prevent low airthrows being punishable by Double.

Valentine:
- Lv3 cinematic is skippable by the Valentine player holding any Punch during the fade-out.
- Flatline will only hit point characters, never assists/heads/Lenny/etc, and will not kill until the final hit.
- Hitting Valentine during her counter stance with her own Lv3 or Mortuary Drop no longer wrongly costs her 4 bars of meter. Only takes the correct 2 bars away.
- Hitstun poison (MP) only lasts 2/3 as long when the opponent is in hitstun. Blockstun does not affect the time.
- j.HP hitstun reduced by 2f, knocks up 1 pixel higher vs airborne opponents. Prevents an exploit. Still combos into HK Savage Bypass, etc.
- Countervenom (Lv2 poison counter) hitbox much taller, will no longer whiff on max height Painwheel j.MP. Can still whiff vs. Parasoul max height sj.HK, be careful.
- c.HP blockstun shortened by 6f, “feels” like all other launchers now in terms of punishing it.
- Air and ground Savage Bypass recovery shortened.
- Fortune is no longer able to move her head during the Prescription freeze; Peacock item drops disappear properly if she is hit by Prescription freeze.
- Counter super now properly faces opponent on startup.

Marie:
- All attacks now give the opponent meter on hit or block.
- Small skulls have energy background, easier to see.
- Add Apocalypse-style hitstun. Triggered by taking enough damage quickly, and more easily by supers.

But still no lobbies i guess character specific tutorials are cool. if that to long i can spoiler it.

Quote
In an unprecedented revelation from the word of the Skullgirls developers themselves, Reverge Labs last June laid off the entire Skullgirls team from their game development division. Autumn Games, the publisher of the Skullgirls game and the owner of its property, will continue supporting the new team (which is comprised of the old team) that is now titled Lab Zero Games. The reason for the layoff was not given.

As a major effect of this development, the PC version of Skullgirls was delayed and the release of the first DLC character has been indefinitely postponed. A note from LZG's new website is below.

Quote
Not being able to tell anyone about these rather significant developments has almost been as bad as being largely unemployed and unable to continue our work on Skullgirls. We have always strived to be as open and transparent as our business and legal obligations will allow, but we feared news of these events would discourage our fans more than our conspicuous silence would. Being able to finally fill everyone in on everything is a huge relief, and we hope you understand our reasons for keeping quiet until now.

Everyone at Lab Zero would like to thank all of our amazing fans for their patience and support through this ordeal and as we (re)start on this new adventure. And even though this change was largely out of our control, the Skullgirls team still sincerely apologizes for the delays and lack of information in recent months.

We’re doing this for you, and we can’t wait to get back to work!

Until then,

Sincerely,
Lab Zero Games

Quote
The PC version of Skullgirls has been available for pre-order over on Gamers Gate for quite some time now. They have since added some new information on the release confirming it will use Steamworks instead of Games For Windows Live. This should allow for cross-platform between the PlayStation Network and the PC version on Steam, like other games such as Portal 2.

Skullgirls on PC is set for release sometime in Q1 of 2013 and will cost $14.99 USD. When pre-ordering from Gamers Gate, customers will be given 4 bonus color palettes for Parasoul.

It's kind of old news(especially since the tweet the EH uses as a source was May of last year). Unless something drastic changed overnight, I'm pretty skeptical since that Gamersgate preorder link (as well as that placeholder release date) has been up for a while and the messages from the Devs on whether they're still working on the port at all has been pretty non existent.

Recently getting this game turned out to be a good deal... Well, it was only $7.35 on PSN at the moment (Helps to have Playstation Plus and all)

I'm just shocked that there is no one online. Is the game dead from an online perspective?

Well personally this just makes me question who would actually play ST this year since last time it was there it was strictly Japan for a 16-man invitational qualifier for something else.

At the same time, almost everyone outside Japan has moved on from competitive ST so I am genuinely curious as to who the fuck would have donated $35k in a matter of just a few days.

I doubt Skullgirls will make any notable gains until the last Salty Cupcakes Donation Stream that happens tonight. On the bright side, it means that the evo donation drive has already gone over 100k in total.

Maybe this should go to the tournament thread since this more about the evo lineup than just ST?

News about Skullgirls.

Lab Zero is planing to hold a fundraising drive starting February 25.

their goal is to raise $150k, with the funds they hope to make squigly, one a male dlc char, and a third dlc char.

Also news about the PC version and more

Quote
Last night one the Salty Cupcakes stream, some new Skullgirls DLC information was released, including who their first male character will be.

Big Band, has been confirmed as future DLC after the release of Squigly. Details on Big Band, general crowd fund, goals and reward tiers, PC version and more are available over on the SkullHeart forums.
Quote
Big Band:

• Big Band, the gigantic iron lung wearing character from the Lab 8 stage is confirmed as the first Male Character stretch goal after Squigly.

• He will be a charge character with anti-air and command grabs.

• It was previously mentioned that MikeZ wanted to make Big Band play like Q from Street Fighter 3 Third Strike, "but good".

• He will be called サックスでか (Sax-Deka) in Japan. Deka is both a slang term for someone who is extremely tall and also for a police officer/detective. So his name is basically "Sax Detective". Peter Bartholow mentioned previously that this name was what Japanese fans started calling him before the game was released there and is thus a nod to them, and a nod to characters in fighting games having different names in different regions.

• If you select Big Band in a fight he won't appear in the backdrop for Lab 8.

If the 150k calculation is valid, KOF XII with its 22 characters had development costs of over 4-5 Millions. Didn't thought development costs would be so high

Title: Re: Skullgirls
Post by: LurkerSupreme on February 26, 2013, 11:06:23 PM
You have to keep in mind that for a Skullgirls character who is about 1/3 of the way through production,while the staff takes pay cuts. The average cost for each character is in the range of 250K and ...I don't feel like finishing this thought. It feels like I've been indoctrinated. I just really want to know the cost to develop each character for other fighting games to compare it without the numbers being off the record.

I'm also wondering why they have to contract hitboxes too.
Title: Re: Skullgirls
Post by: S.D. on February 26, 2013, 11:20:47 PM
KOFXII characters have less frames (Only 4 basic buttons and a super limited move set) and the sprites are smaller so the cleaning work is nowhere near as time consuming as in Skullgirls (Also they used CG to trace over the animations, Skullgirls only does that for Painwheel's weapon)
Title: Re: Skullgirls

Title: Re: Skullgirls
Post by: LurkerSupreme on February 28, 2013, 12:13:48 AM
New info has been posted about Big Band on their front page.

Quote
Ben Birdland has seen a lot in his time, including the worst of the Grand War. But nothing was worse than what he saw as a beat cop in New Meridian. When he ran afoul of his crooked unit he was given a violent early retirement, and his broken body was left to spend the rest of its days in an iron lung.

That would have been the end of Ben’s story if it hadn't drawn the ears of the Anti-Skullgirl Labs. With little left to lose, he agreed to be rebuilt with their experimental procedures. Melded with the machinery that allows him to breathe and a powerful an array of pneumatic weaponry, he was reborn as “Big Band.”

Now a senior member of Lab 8, he’s become a father figure of sort to the younger ASG soldiers. A firm believer in their cause, he has stayed with the project through its controversies and still sees his place on the front lines against the Skullgirl. His technology may be dated, but he more than makes up for it with experience and fortissimo.


We’re preparing to start work on Big Band, but here’s what we can tell you about him so far.

Big Band’s massive mechanical body is heavily armed with pneumatic weapons capable of generating powerful blasts of pressurized air. As his name implies, woodwinds, brass and percussion instruments are his forte, so expect him to produce variously-sized horns, flutes and drums for his attacks. Defensively, you can expect him to make good use of that dusty coat.

For example, he might open his coat to fire a barrage of mute missiles from trumpet cannons, or do an elbow drop using a giant saxophone. We’d also like to experiment with the idea of making his combos musical, perhaps sounding like improvisational jazz as you chain his attacks together.


We’ll begin concepting out some of Big Band’s attacks soon, and will be sharing progress with everyone as he develops!

We’e added more Patron Saints, so naturally people are wondering… where are all of new NPCs going to hang out?

The response has bee so overwhelming, we’re adding a second “Bonus” stage, the ballroom tentatively known as “The Glass Canopy.”

Check out the early concept of the stage here, and let’s fill it up!

Also, they've been getting about 20K a day. At this rate, the 3rd character might be a reality. Giving Mane6 the engine is still a bit out there.

(http://www.labzerogames.com/images/IGG/DLC_Isaac.png)
Quote
Isaac is an archaeologist who has made unsettling discoveries below the Canopy Kingdom, only to have the evidence buried. Now hunted, Isaac has been literally buying time using shards of a unique type of Theonite he discovered in his search. The one other person who knows about the dig has been wrongfully imprisoned, but learning the truth would put her in greater danger.

Playstyle Speculation
Isaac’s time travel mechanics aren’t your standard slow/stop fare. For example, a double of Isaac could instantly appear from the future for a lunging punch, and a countdown begins above Isaac’s head. When the countdown reaches zero, Isaac pauses and prepares to travel back in time to deliver the punch. If he is hit during the preparation, the opponent regains any damage they took from the punch since it never happened. If his double is hit during the punch, Isaac himself takes damage when the countdown reaches zero.

Isaac may also have other time related attacks, such as the ability to convert successful special attacks into supers in the past after noticing they connected. He could possibly manipulate the timer, namely knocking off a few seconds to hasten that time-out.

Gameplay Inspiration

Brain Drain, Ottomo and Eliza are probably my favorites, however Eliza's is specifically because of character design instead of how she's supposed to play, which is bad I guess. Brain Drain is probably my favorite character design and his gameplay isn't so bad, but Ottomo's probably my favorite in terms of both gameplay and design.

On a slightly different note, I've been going through story mode at a decent clip. I'd honestly be all in for a crowd-funding campaign to fluff it out a bit.
Well, you're likely to get three more character side-stories from the campaign.

The whole canon story is another matter, though... we'd probably need to overshoot the third character's story mode by quite a bit to make all of that work, because it's going to be a LOT of new writing and art.  (http://67.227.255.239/forum/showpost.php?p=51373374&postcount=4299)

I like the innovation in the time travel thing but I dislike that she's so similar to Double, and is a mimic character. I think Venus has a vague description and Samson is...kind of up in the air.
Title: Re: Skullgirls
Post by: 修羅 on March 26, 2013, 01:20:53 AM
Venus's design was shown off enough in previous sketches from a while ago, and it's pretty obvious from the inspirations that she will teleport and use her insides (see: Abaddon) as a weapon while doing incredibly lewd poses.

My man.  Looking forward to seeing her.

At the end of the day, though, I'd be happy to see any one of these characters except Marie.  Even the description they gave Juju looked cool before they took it down.
Title: Re: Skullgirls
Post by: 修羅 on March 26, 2013, 02:12:05 AM
What was her description?
Title: Re: Skullgirls
Post by: SNT on March 26, 2013, 02:20:50 AM
Quote
The Black Egret sniper is so rarely seen or heard, any description of her is considered a wild rumor. The few who spot her doubt their eyes long enough to be caught in the scope of her “talking” gun, Gorgon 13. Will the current conflict bring her out in the open?

Playstyle Speculation
Take the shot!

Juju’s powerful sniper rifle is integrated in her play style for single, powerful, tricky shots. She can pull off complicated ricochet shots and would be able to load her gun with different kinds of ammo for special hits. It would be ideal to reward a sense of accuracy to these deadly attacks, perhaps similar to the Clean Hits in Guilty Gear. There could be some sort of targeting, trip-wire, and/or aiming mechanism involved in some of her moves.

Parasoul could return the favor here, offering literal cover fire in the form of napalm tears raining down from off screen. Juju could fire at these planted napalm tears, causing an intense, fiery chain reaction.

The size of her rifle would let it double as a staff for far-reaching melee attacks. She would also have the traditional arsenal of military weapons on hand for close range combat, such as grenades, a handgun, and a combat knife.

Gameplay Inspiration
Hol Horse (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure), Sharon (Street Fighter EX), Saki (Tatsunoko vs. Capcom), Cable (Marvel vs. Capcom 2), Yoshi (Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island), Ran Hibiki (Rival Schools: Project Justice), Naoto (Persona 4: Ultimate), Jagi (Hokuto no Ken), Mu-12 (BlazBlue), Nanase (Street Fighter EX series), Rolento (Street Fighter Alpha series), Sol Badguy (Guilty Gear Accent Core)

Everyone knows about the Mane6 / Fighting Is Magic $725,000 stretch goal now, right? Right.

So what if we sweetened the deal?

If we raise $725,000, we’ll upgrade Robo-Fortune from a mere voice pack into a full-blown, playable character.

I guess they're really going to shoot for the moon now.

Why is simple. His explanation was well placed. This really was a "we're broke and really need help" kind of deal, but extending it would be a "give us more money and we give you even more content!" move. It's an honorable move, it's the stuff that seperates them from garbage like Capcom.

Non-disclosure agreements with the powers that be prevent me from getting too specific, but in the last week one of our character development line items has evaporated. This means we’ve got an additional $40,000 to play with now.

Naturally we’ll be using this money to give the 2nd fan-selected Mysterious Character a stage and story mode.

Here is an extremely tentative schedule for the reward distribution:
- By 4/31/2013: Wallpapers, Digital OST, Digital Sketchbook, Digital Art Compendium, Half Minute Hero Codes - By 6/31/2013: Steam Beta Codes - By 7/31/2013: T-Shirt, Poster, Postcards, Physical OST

All custom rewards will take longer to resolve, but we’ll be in touch soon to start working on those with everyone individually.
Quote
We’ll be moving forward on the character voting soon. The vote will be conducted in four rounds, lasting roughly a week each:
- Round 1: All characters, 4 votes - Round 2: Top 16 characters, 3 votes - Round 3: Top 8 characters, 2 votes - Round 4: Top 4 characters, 1 vote

Since we will be voting on two characters, each will have its own voting process, so the two campaigns don’t interfere with the other.

Also, this will be a blind vote – there will not be any interim updates provided within each round.

For each round, you will receive an e-mail with a voting link
Any votes that we deem suspicious will be rejected

So read up on the characters, start campaigning for your choices, and keep an eye on your e-mail!

The rewards and PC version seem so far away. And this happened(contains Gurren Lagann spoilers) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zMxaMT0su4)

Sadly I know more than a couple who went that way, especially for Aeon.  I think the savestate thing is reaching a little too far.  That said I'd like to see Eliza because the playstyle description outside of the blood gimmick reminded me of a heavier-set Litchi.  That and the idea of an Egyptian themed jazz lounge stage struck a chord with me.

Fairly confident Beowulf's going to make it, though, glad for that.  Scythana might need a bit of a push to make it to the Top 8, though.

I 'm also really surprised Aeon made that far over Feng and Scythana.
In all honesty, I don't expect her to win, but I'm really happy Aeon made it this far. I've wanted to see her playable ever since completing Double's story.

what do you mean by zookeeper? I thought she was described as a maid? The whole concept of "clumsy maid" sounds too animu for me, but the gameplay seems more interesting than some.
She seems to be able to level up like Phoenix wright , by collecting stuff from helpers she can summon to interfere with the opponent and then hit with a special move..

Incidentally, I agree with this guy:

(http://i.imgur.com/APaZrYq.png)

helpers she can summon to interfere with the opponent
That's a zookeeper.  Like MvC2 Jill, Cap Com or to a lesser extent Strider's call the zoo hyper.  The animu schtick only makes it even worse.

Although I do wonder why people like Aeon; her design is just as, if not even goofier than anyone else's.

HP Lovecraft and his Cthulhu Mythos have inspired many, and Skullgirls is one of them!
The entirety of Little Innsmouth is one massive tribute to the fishiest town in horror stories, and it's people are a wonderfully fascinating bunch of characters!

It's no less than right for the town to have it's own representative in Skullgirls, and Minette, the waitress, is the prime candidate for the job!

(http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m2hdmxPgq31rngqyzo1_500.png)

Despite being the daughter of the River King himself, Minette has quite a humble job as a waitress in Yu Wan's restaurant. Despite the cozy job, she has to tend with quite a nasty bunch of bad guests, be it mafia members, or purely racist morons. Despite this, she keeps making her customers happy, even giving away food to passers-by. Just be careful with the tip...

So what are you waiting for? Let your inner fish speak to you and give her the spot she deserves over that Cleopatra and Sailor Moon wannabes!

However, if Lab Zero chooses to do more than one round with this type of voting, it may not be as effective as they'd like it to be.

I mean the original idea for Juju's character was some supposedly retarded suggestion from a guy who was in the team and they barely wanted to go with it at all.

It got a redesign, suddenly someone's not happy, and bam she's erased? That's not cool.

She had a gameplay description before since she was in the 3rd Character list. She was basically Saki from TVC, so keepaway.

And I like keepaway when done right.

Ah that makes sense then guess they removed it before i saw it, Man i keep forgetting Saki was even in TvC now i see how Juju would work and the appeal there.

Found this on Skullheart

Quote
The Black Egret sniper is so rarely seen or heard, any description of her is considered a wild rumor. The few who spot her doubt their eyes long enough to be caught in the scope of her “talking” gun, Gorgon 13. Will the current conflict bring her out in the open?

Playstyle Speculation
Take the shot!
Juju’s powerful sniper rifle is integrated in her play style for single, powerful, tricky shots. She can pull off complicated ricochet shots and would be able to load her gun with different kinds of ammo for special hits. It would be ideal to reward a sense of accuracy to these deadly attacks, perhaps similar to the Clean Hits in Guilty Gear. There could be some sort of targeting, trip-wire, and/or aiming mechanism involved in some of her moves.
Parasoul could return the favor here, offering literal cover fire in the form of napalm tears raining down from off screen. Juju could fire at these planted napalm tears, causing an intense, fiery chain reaction.
The size of her rifle would let it double as a staff for far-reaching melee attacks. She would also have the traditional arsenal of military weapons on hand for close range combat, such as grenades, a handgun, and a combat knife.

Gameplay Inspiration
Hol Horse (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure), Sharon (Street Fighter EX), Saki (Tatsunoko vs. Capcom), Cable (Marvel vs. Capcom 2), Yoshi (Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island), Ran Hibiki (Rival Schools: Project Justice), Naoto (Persona 4: Ultimate), Jagi (Hokuto no Ken), Mu-12 (BlazBlue), Nanase (Street Fighter EX series), Rolento (Street Fighter Alpha series), Sol Badguy (Guilty Gear Accent Core)

She definitely sounds interesting.

Quote
Hi guys,

This message comes in a bit late, since the first round of voting for the second character has already started, but it’s still probably relevant enough~

Some brainstorming concept attack doodles for some of the candidates. A bunch of these concepts were from a while ago, while others are fairly recent. Also keep in mind that the concepts in here are by no means the official attacks of the character, but mostly to give you an idea of what they might look like, or what kind of style they may posses  This is sort of the first step for our process when it comes to thinking of character attacks.

Top image is Black Dahlia, followed by some Venus concepts. Then we have some Marie attacks, and actually a drawing I found while digging around my archives of Marie’s boss concept drawn out. The image of Marie’s actual boss form is accompanied by the approximate average size of a full-blooded Gigan, if one were present in-game.

After that are a series of Umbrella images- the first batch are some very old archives, and the second batch are still a bit old, but relatively recent.

The last image is something cool I found in the archives as well; a drawing by the one and only Ryusuke Hamamoto. The guy is *REALLY* cool, I must say. He’s been to quite a lot of US cons. I’ve seen him at SDCC a handful of times. As you can see, he drew this Umbrella for me at SDCC, way back in 2007. I hope he’s cool that I’m posting this up here @3@/

Anyway, a mix of of a glimpse at SG past + a peek at the future, one could say.

More character concepts coming up in the future, time permitting (working on the actual game content during the day, of course)

I’m excited to get working on Eliza concepts in the future too. Been thinking about that a lot lately as well~

Have fun at the polls, y’all @A@ Vote!
Umbrella looks so cool in these man.
Title: Re: Skullgirls
Post by: Cazaki on May 08, 2013, 03:11:45 AM
Ehh. I'm not really a fan of any of them, Venus especially. Though I wouldn't mind Umbrella or Dahlia being in the game.

More to come… maybe- time permitting~

Edit: Oh, and just in case it’s not clear- these are concepts from the brainstorming phase. That means that these are not guaranteed moves or necessarily 100% indicative of the character, but it does give you a good taste of the character’s flavor/style. (heartburn, in Ileum’s case)

Super cut-ins are looking better as well

Did the author pull an oldschool elite creator move and make his stuff private because of people being interested in his character?

Juju's creator broke the NDA (Non-disclosure agreement) by announcing on Skullheart that he and Lab Zero came to an agreement and Juju was made an official character. He talked about something that was not supposed to reach people that weren't him or the employees of Lab Zero Games. Since he broke that agreement, LZG axed the character.

@Loco Nachoz: Ah, okay. That makes sense I guess. I thought he pulled her again because of the thread and was mighty confused. Though LZ must not have wanted the character that bad if this simple thread made them end it. Then again looking at how he was acting I'd have looked for any reason not to associate with him as well.
Title: Re: Skullgirls
Post by: 修羅 on May 27, 2013, 01:20:28 AM
The guys expressed they would've wanted to work on Juju but there were complications with the original "creator" whose only contribution to the current design of the character that remained was the name. And he caused a shitfit about it that lasted quite some time, so big that it caused her to be removed from the 3rd Character page.

Damn shame the character can't even be a background character at this point, and the Hol Horse style gameplay intrigued me.

Wonder if they'd be able to like what they did with Umineko's Jessica Ushiromiya, who cosplays as Touhou's Marisa in the VN/anime/fighting game (http://i.imgur.com/ffm6u35.png), but has this fucking thing (http://i.imgur.com/gUNGlhX.png) for the PS3 port of the VN and the XBOX360 port of Ougon. Although I imagine there's so much bad blood over this thing that it would just be bittersweet if she was brought back in any form at all.

That's just your opinion, just like my opinion is that I love the cast of characters (except maybe Double). I just sat down for a while with the game last night, and I realized how much love was put into the initial eight characters, and I found that I enjoyed playing as all of them equally (except maybe Double).

LOL'ed at Squigly's story mode. I was trying to use Artmoney to see what happens if you actually beat Marie, but I guess I have to be offline to get it to work (ie: when I was messing with Poker Night 2).

I should add that Squigly is fun to play as, although I haven't been able to test her in a match proper yet.

Also found a few non-fight bugs, like crashing the game by watching the credits from the Extras menu.

2. You believe a low rig
