    Fan service maybe? I know that's what prevented me from getting it for the longest time.
    Careful, it can be addictive. ;)
    Seriously though, the better you get, the more it gets you.

    Hey, is that run stop canceling thing still doable? Since I've been trying to do it, but can't seem to get it right.

    Moderator edit: Please don't multi-post.

    Ey I'm not super great at it but I love skullgirls. Ms. Fortune was my first main, and I've since picked up the two skullbois.

    Nothing changed in Skullgirls that would affect that combo since, it's still perfectly doable.

    For a more elaborate response though, I prompted dragonos about it and he told me as follows:
    Out of curiosity, why are you attempting to recreate this considerably impractical combo?

    Love me some Skullgirls. Ms. Fortune, Double, and Squigly are generally on my top wai...erm...playable characters list.

    I do wish that they added in other characters like Black Dahlia and Roxie. Would have been really neat to play them.

    Why is Sniper 13 there? I thought she got axed by some NDA stuff. I also think that SG would be even more popular with another six characters in addition to what we've got now.

    I didn't know about sniper 13, but I would love more characters for skullgirls. I believe Lab Zero is planning on announcing stuff about indivisible and the future of skullgirls at Anime Expo though. I got an indiegogo notification about it a while ago.

    The Anime Expo presentation was most likely going to just be Indivisible with very low chance of anything new for SG. Mike Z might be working on SG right now to fix lobbies and some last minute change stuff, but there is less than a 3% chance they are going to work on any additional Bog content for SG like characters. By this point, anything big like that would just be saved for an SG2, which they don't even seem to want to think about till after Indivisible.

    Skullgirls mobile game (IOS, Android), developed by Hidden Variable Studios (Threes!) along with Lab Zero. Story acts as a prequel, you can sign up for a beta here.



    Peter Bartholow (Ravidrath) from Lab Zero has been answering questions about the game in this NeoGaf thread.

    I tend to like characters who have speed and maneuverability, so Mrs. Fortune is an obvious choice. Oddly enough though I tend to play my best as Parasoul and Valentine in a two person team.

    If I'm lucky enough to get the Skullgirls Mobile beta I won't be able to play it anytime soon as it's not compatable with Microsoft Lumia phones (yet). Here's hoping that Skullgirls Mobile will get ported to Microsoft Lumia mobile phones in the future.
    An Indivisible mobile phone game would be cool to play &/or unlocking an Indivisible character/fighter in the Skullgirls Mobile game.

    I want to see a new Darkstalkers/ Night Warriors game on mobile phones.

    Them's Fighitin' Herds mobile game could be intresting to see in the future (Something for the Neat Idea section).The game can be a mixture of fighting and music/ rhythm games with the Dynamic Music System. You could for example be tapping the screen trying to get Arizona to head bangiat &/or doing different lasso tricks the right time to the different beats and when you/she getts better the Dynamic Music System start to change to Arizona theme? The better you get the more harder lasso tricks Arizona does.
    Different nice things (magic spells: Flowers, confetti, ect) could pop out Oleander book when she reading new magic spells/flipping through the books pages and she doing good in the music/ rhythm games but when she does bad in the game by reciting the wrong spells, Fred might throw a cream pie in Oleander's face, startled her with somthing or even worse Fred could give Oleander the claw/ Clawpalm, like he did with Arizona [​IMG]or maybe Fred & Oleander turn into weird & funny things when she [​IMG]recites the wrong spells.
    There might have to be some type of animations of this with different outcomes you can unlock in them. Fred will use the unique things that he has in his book and give it to the individual character [including playable DLC & preditors characters] &/or uses it on them.

    [​IMG]

    Each character will have their own unique animation when tapping the screen to the beat playing. There will be an animation for each playable character when their doing good, ok, not bad, bad very bad and excellent.
    Mane6 advertisiing campaign could be "Stampeding on the Go with Them's Fighitin' Herds mobile game" or "Stampeding on to your mobile Them's Fightin' Herds" Them's Fightin' Herds Go(es) Mobile.

    Please no. That'd be like the pachinko machine of FGs. It would just solidify we'd never get another real Darkstalkers.

    You only had like 60 minutes experience and our matches were close. Me thinks you'll be dominating me in no time.

    Well here is the thing. First stop cheeseing. You can't learn if you constantly spam just one annoyning attack, sure its safe vs. Big Band and you will win sometimes but once someone learns to counter that move he will punish you badly then you will not know how to fight them close range

    For any Skullgirls 2nd Encore fans here check out Limited Run Games for the limited edition physical Skullgirls game on PS$ & PS Vita. You have two weeks from today to pre-order the game. If we hit over $10K Lab Zero will add Japanese voice over to the digtal & physical version of the game.

    I hope Limited Run Games would do a limited edition of Darkstalkers Resurrection [http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-GB/Product/Darkstalkers-Resurrection/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d8025841122f ], Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game [SCOTT PILGRIM THE GAME] & Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World [http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-GB/Product/Sega-Vintage-Collection-Monster-World/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d80258410b72?cid ] on PC, XBox 360, Xbox 1, PS3 & PS4.
    It seem that [close minded] Microsoft don't do small runs/units on thier games, so Limited Run Games don't make physical version of their products on Xbox 360 &/or XBox 1 systems.

    Orders for the limited physical edition of Skullgirls 2nd Encore for PS4 & PS Vita will close tonight at 11:59PM Eastern Time. There are count down timemer on the products page for when the pre-orders closes.
    Limited Run Games are also posting tweets on Twitter on how close we are to reaching the Japanes voice overs for Skullgirls 2nd Encore.

    I think they need to sell around 500 more copies and they will hit the 10K target to get Japanese Voice Overs in the physical & digital version of this game.

    I bought one of each version of the game [PS4 & PS Vita] rather than the $74.99 bundle as I get two Skullgirls soundtracks for the extra $5 and pay an additional extra $7 for heavier international delivery [international delivery for the $74.99 bundle or for items depending on how heavy they are is $15 ].

    I think we got the Japanese voice over for Skullgirls 2nd Encore in the bag.

    [Edit] We hit 10K, so we will be getting Japanese voice overs in Skullgirls 2nd Encore [physical & digital versions].

    Limited Run Games will be selling their leftover stocks {PS4 games, PS Vita games & soundtracks] for Black Friday [All items will be limited to one per customer unless otherwise specified. Those limits will be lifted at 12PM on the 25th]. They will also be auctioning some of the games that have been returned/ opened and they will be doing some blind boxs on some of their past games.
    This will not include pre-order games like Skullgirls.
    I think Lab Zero may sell the physical version of Skullgirls on the PS4 & PSVita in the future.

    3) Painwheel
    4) Big Band
    5) Valentine (but i don't like her as a person)

    Howdy. Thought I'd pop in here.

    My team right now is Peacock/Ms Fortune. Still looking for the third one. And then how I want to arrange them.

    Any tips for this nooblet? XD

    That is strong team. Good balance.
    Ms Fortune is my favourite ^.^ imo she can be teamed up with just about anyone else and be perfectly complimentary. The real consideration will be Peacock, as she is a keep-away fighter and will work better with some over others.

    If you can get used to her moves, Parasoul could be a rock solid support for Peacock, as Parasoul is a zone fighter and can keep your opponent trapped at bay with her napalm attacks. Plus, her standard close-quarter game is pretty decent (albeit a bit on the slow side).
    Or, you could try Robo-Fortune, her laser attacks are annoying as hell and work similarly to peacocks 'Bang' moves. As well as most of her moveset is geared towards keeping opponents away and/or juggled.
    Alternatively, you could try using Valentine. She is one of the fastest/most mobile characters in the game and she plays fairly similarly to Ms Fortune too. She can close or create distances very easily with moves like Savage Bypass, and Vial Harzard is nasty in multiplayer.
    I think Squigly might work well with Peacock. Peacock is a keep away fighter and Squigly has a lot of pulling moves. So you could reel em in with Squigly and then bounce em back with peacock. Plus, Squigly is just fkn lovely :)

    As for arrangement, I usually lead with my strongest to wear em down so the job is easier for when I switch to the one I'm not as good at or still getting the hang of, plus it means my primary will have healed and be ready to finish the job if things go south.

    Of course, don't take my word for it. Explore the game :) Play around with everyone and see who sticks.

    I don't know how relevant my info is in SG+, but I would recommend Peacock in the lead with George light assist or shadow assist. Put Big Band second with heavy Brass assist, and Miss Fortune anchor, in the last slot, probably with heavy Fiber assist. Miss Fortune is good with meter and is strong on her own, and Peacock is really good with a spacing assist and an anti-air assist, namely heavy Brass and heavy Fiber. They nerfed heavy Brass recently, but it still fills a huge amount of screen. You could also try heavy Giant Step, but it's all about what feels right.

    Can't believe I didn't mention Big Band O_O *facepalm*

    Big Band is a great choice. He's ridiculously strong, (relatively) easy to use and excels across distances. Defs try Big Band

    when i read the team match ups above , i realise how different i am to how others play o3o, i normally main ms. fortune and just spam the random button for everything else XD, win rate is about 70% (from estimation on thoughts) but if i had to make a team it would be Ms. Fortune, Valentine and Beowulf for me, that team just feels right idk why but it does :3

    Have you tried using Filia? She's a great rushdown character. With moves like Hairball, ringlet spike and s.HK, she'd be good with peacock and nadia
