    anyone else getting flashbacks? This is just like in elementary school, occasionally having the donations for some charity, and thewinning class got a pizza party... I never got to enjoy a pizza party... and the teacher always looked at us like assholes cause our class ranked 10th in a 10 class running... I'm just gonna... just gonna check back on the 31st. Don't think I'll be able to handle the ever present rollercoaster of watching us fluxuate places, or the despair of seeing the one we're neck and neck with go up 1000 instantly. I'll save the link though, and I'll contribute if I get anything.

    heard my words that for the end of the month you'll have your pizza party. WE ALL WILL HAVE A PIZZA PARTY WITH PEACOCK!!!!

    Smash is still just ever so slightly ahead.

    Current standings:
    SSBM ($2129.00)
    Skullgirls ($2066.22)
    DOA 5 ($1262.69)
    Guilty Gear ($1090.00)

    Come on people, let's put them based broads on top. Keep the donations coming so we can keep this launch party going all day err day!
    For me, SF4 got fighting games backward - combos are supposed to be easy and reversals are supposed to be hard.

    I should have donated again to this instead of buying BB today.

    Now I feel bad.

    Sell BB and donate... unless off course by BB you mean Based Broads (slightly different edition).

    I cannot believe it. This is actually a possibility.

    Like right now, Melee is only ahead by like $50. That's... amazing.

    We can't lose as long as we have on our side the people who don't think Melee is a fighting game.

    LET'S GO.

    For the sake of Skullgirls I shall not consider Melee a fighting game again until February 1st.

    Just donated what little I have. Still sad that I can't play the patched game yet, but if the game gets the attention it needs on the main stage at EVO, then that'll more than make up for it.

    So I said screw it and donated much more. Donated a good 50 bucks to this cause, maybe I'll donate again next paycheck or the paycheck after that.

    I want to do whatever I can to help SkullGirls make it to Evo!

    OK so I wrote a note in my Facebook and shared it with different fighting game groups and all my friends. I'm putting the note here, and you can change anything you want or copy/paste it exactly. Let's use the normally-a-stupid-burden social media and blogosphere to get some money donated to the boobies!


    Put it on Facebook. Put it in Google+ and share it with every circle. Tweet the link to it to everyone you know. Bombard everyone you know and don't let up.

    Title:
    Support Breast Cancer and an Indie Game Developer

    Text:
    "Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States. It is also one of the leading causes of cancer death among women of all races and Hispanic origin populations." - CDC

    I know you're confused, wondering, "What does breast cancer have to do with gaming?" The reasoning is very unique. Breast cancer research and gaming have found a common interest this year.

    Every year, there is a very large fighting game tournament series called the Evolution Championship Series (EVO, for short). This year is EVO's biggest year yet, featuring eight fighting games (the largest amount yet). And as you can imagine, all the popular fighting games are present. But you may not be aware of one indie game developer who is currently in the running that could also use some help.

    Lab Zero Games is an independent game developer group formed by a few friends who were laid off from her previous job. Their previous job involved the making of a fighting game called Skullgirls. A fighting game made by tournament players, with nearly every feature a tournament player could ever want.
    
    

    The game uses hand drawn sprites running at 60 frames per second to create one of the most fluid two-dimensional fighting games in years. Youtube videos don't make the game justice. The engine is similar to games like Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Darkstalkers and Guilty Gear. More importantly, this game came from the combined dreams of two guys: tournament-player and lead programmer Mike Zaimont; and lead artist Alex Ahad. Mike was very interested in creating a fighting game engine that was a balanced combination of several popular fighting games. Alex Ahad was an aspiring artist with a unique universe filled with interesting characters that he hoped to include in a game. When their interests met, they worked nonstop pitching the idea to developers: a tournament game designed by tournament players for tournament players.

    A month after their game was finally released, the entire team behind the game was laid off due to legal troubles with their parent company, and since then they worked without pay for nearly 8 months to be able to bring to the gaming community a title update (for PS3, but they are still working on the Xbox 360 version). They are still not being paid because their parent company is still involved in legal troubles, so they will likely not see a penny yet.

    You, who is still reading this, can make a difference in two ways. This small group of friends want to get their labor of love into the biggest fighting game competition in the world, and at the same time you can help provide money to entities conducting research in prevention and finding a cure for breast cancer! A game like this belongs in the grandest stage. Help them AND help men and women all over the world by clicking on the link below.

    https://www.wepay.com/donations/evo2013-sg

    The donation is tax-deductible, and will help a lot of people. Help grant a few people their biggest dream, and help millions of people live healthier lives.

    SG: $2,781.22
    SSBM: $2,579.47

    Looks like the $50 I donated helped quite a bit there!

    Yeah that was my bad, I did get caught up in the moment.
    Also I'm not bursting too much money at once, cause personally I think that's smarter. I will most likely just wait till my paycheck this thursday to donate a bit more.

    Also I'm considering making a video to advertise this cause to help SkullGirls, what do you guys think?

    Oh come on, now that's just mean.
    This community is getting too nice.

    Alexis is the nicest person on the planet off the interwebs, we need more dirt.

    And yeah, we need to simmer down, we can all do our best and donate, but I think we're gonna hurt ourselves if we keep at this rate.

    16 more days of this would kill anyone.

    I suggest we don't check the counter for a couple of days, just talk to people, let niggas in your scene know, then like, next Thursday, look at where we are.

    Just noticed how far ahead Skullgirls pulled ahead of Melee. There's still plenty of time on the clock, but I'm really glad to see Skullgirls pull ahead here. Between Melee and Skullgirls, I think I'd prefer to see more of the latter. I thought it might not have a chance against the SSB community at first, but it's really good to see them in the lead. Still surprised that DOA5 is running pretty strong too, and that Melty got almost no love.

    Apparently the bronies have decided to join our side and are actually supporting SkullGirls now as well.

    Also people in the smash community are fucking scary dude, some people are absolutely pissed off that they are joining our side.

    My God this is amazing... It's like everyones morale went WAY UP after MLP was removed from the running. ;) And good because as much as I like MLP and Fighting is Magic, I must say, Skullgirls is much more deserving of being the 8th game. SSB comunity might be big but Skullgirls have some real crazy people with a lot of excess money. ;) (Not me unfortunately :( )
