    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    Is the patch for the Skullgirls XBLA release available yet? I've kind of stopped playing and picked up BlazBlue CS Extend again. Gonna get some Skullgirls in tomorrow night so I can prep for a little side tournament at Xanadu.

    I've finally got a cerebella run stop combo that's worth it.

    Thank you, based training mode.

    Pfft, just assume it's going to be summer. That way, if it comes out sooner it will be a pleasant surprise.

    If MS starts asking for money for the patch, then maybe Lab Zero should get sponsored by Brazzers.

    In these cases, it really is great just to be nominated...

    ...because the most popular game will win in any votes decided by the general public regardless of actual merit.

    If you mean "wasting money" for the Skullgirl, sure.

    If it's over 50 dollars, just go Audio Technica or sennheiser.

    So since I'm waiting on the 360 patch, I've been playing a metric fuckload of KoF13.

    Yeah... I'm just gonna leave this here:

    Someone in a Skullgirls thread in some other forum mentioned "Launch Party."

    As such...

    New season of Fighterpedia was mentioned during their SFxMegaman video, so I hope they finally do.



    Hey guys, how is the online for Persona 4 Arena? It's going for $22 at the moment and I am tempted to pick it up.

    It's pretty dead, because no one is playing it online because it's dead. Sort of a self fulfilling prophecy with fighting games. It being so many outlets FGotY and a super sale might mean a spike in activity again though.

    Sorry, I didn't mean activity, I meant how's the netcode? And how badly does lag affect your ability to do stuff?

    In that case.
    It feels pretty good. They do a lot of buffer stuff to reduce the feel of lag between far away users and overall it's a very pleasant experience, if still at times noticeably behind your inputs.

    ...because the most popular game will win in any votes decided by the general public regardless of actual merit.

    Oh come on, let's get real here, Skullgirls doesn't deserve to win at all. I mean, it was a cute effort, and took great strides to be driven by the community, but you really think it's a better game than P4A and TTT2? Like, seriously, objectively speaking. It only has 8 characters and a bunch of plagiarized elements from other games, and its art style is extremely polarizing. It was made from the get-go to be for tournament players only. Those other games win out in terms of amount of content, casual appeal and user friendliness. These games aren't judged based on which game is the "deepest" and has the most "hardcores", they're judged based on content, fun factor and value, like all other games. I've found people don't have fun with Skullgirls unless they're in it to win.

    The game has a unique style, certainly, so it could win art praise based on that alone, but personally I'm of the opinion that this isn't necessarily a good in of itself. The Touhou games also have "unique" art.

    I thought P4A was pretty terrible.

    Also I actually think that SkullGirls is extremely accessible. If you get two people who have never played it, they will have a blast against each other.

    But the skew comes from when people try to play people beyond their skill level, because its an honest game. They will get blown up and then they will be bitches and then complain the game isn't good because they can't win.

    there are some pretty beastly people online, so its likely their first experience playing online will them be them going through a meat processing machine.

    Things like how deep and solid gameplay is has more value then character variety, user friendliness (aka, people not willing to man up and accept a challenge), and casual appeal.

    So you basically took what I said exactly and wrote it into two paragraphs?

    It wasn't going to win because regardless of how solid the game is, the voting is done by the general public.

    I don't agree with this at all. I think the amount of value in fighting games comes from how easy it is to pick up and play, how much content it has, and how fun it is at low levels. This is why I think games like Smash Bros., TTT2 and Power Stone are way better than crazy anime fighters, they're just more stupid and fun. Hitting more of these checkboxes is how you get more recognition, accolades and sales. I think Skullgirls did nearly everything wrong in this regard.

    I'd like to see stats on that.
    My sample size of 1 disagrees. But a sample size of 1 tells nothing.

    Either way, I ordered P4A. Playing through the story mode and whatever other non-PvP modes there are should at least force me to use my fightstick and get used to it more. By the time that's over hopefully I can decide whether I wanna go for the sanwa parts or just stick to a pad.

    I agree with the first part.

    As for the second part, its just clear that we are looking at it from value from different perspectives. You are looking it from a sales and commercial perspective, in which case I think you are right.

    I am considering it from the mechanics and technical point of view. My favorite games of all time are ST and Treasure games like Astro Boy, Gunstar Heroes and Ikaruga. I am trying to measure the success of the games by their technical mechanics and design, which I think Skull Girls excels at.

    But the fact it doesn't have any male characters and it has a more drastic art style definitely dooms it to not be a commercial success.
