    It depends on what you mean by having "a lot" of people playing online - you're obviously not going to have similar numbers to USFIV, but there is still a decent-sized active community, especially if you live in the US. The netcode is GGPO, which many people consider to be the best out there, and as with most of the smaller games, most people in the community are pretty helpful as well.

    There's always people playing, and those who get top places at tournaments you can usually find them online as well.

    I personally quit because Mike Z was patching the game way to frequently, and in my opinion, didn't let it grow.

    That could have changed now but just letting you know, if you don't mind frequent patching then go for it. It's a fun game.

    The DLC characters are free for three months then they cost some $, but I believe only Eliza is still free at the moment.

    DLC characters are free for the first 3 months as a reward to the people who backed them on Indiegogo.

    I think you get Eliza for free atm. Soon they will release Boewulf for free, and then Robo-fortune. You'll have to buy Big Band and Squigly, or you can play them on the beta if you get the PC game(I think).

    Actually I don't know if Eliza is still free.

    Right now the game should come with Filia, Cerebella, Parasoul, Peacock, Double, Fortune, Valentine, Fukua and Painwheel. 9/12 available characters
    It's nice to meet you, too.

    If you do get it, I would definitely refrain from buying any dlc right now. I wouldn't be surprised if they put them all together into a cheaper bundle after they release Robo-Fortune.

    I never said you had to be a backer to get the stuff for free didn't I.

    Making them free for 3 months was just Lab Zero's way of rewarding people.

    Eliza stopped being free in January iirc.

    and to answer OP's topic, it depends on the console. The game is pretty dead on 360, not sure on PS3 and PC is where most the players are

    You can set the backgrounds to 2D and the game will probably run fine.

    Yeah that's not very promising, considering that the min gpu on the store page is HD3000 graphics. You might consider making a thread on Steam as well to see if anyone has any experience playing with that chipset.

    This is also why I called it quits. I got tired of relearning my mains. And even if they didnt change my main that much anymore, they were constantly fucking around with mechanics. I walked away for a month, and when I came back a system called "Undizzy" had been implemented. It cut ALL of my squigly combos in half if not more than that. I was done at that point. I play it casually every blue moon but I cant be bothered to put actual effort into it.

    Ah, did they remove your favorite ToDs? Somewhere out there is a tiny man with teeny-tiny hands, playing a the saddest song in history on the world's tiniest violin, just soft enough that no one will ever hear it.

    I know your post wasn't towards me but I didn't even care about anything they implemented/took off the game, but I thought it was way more fun when it was broken when it first came out. Reminded me of Marvel 2, what Mike Z intended the game to be. Oh well.

    All the mechanics that Mike has added are from Marvel 2. Undizzy was in Marvel 2 and was the game's main way to prevent infinites. Prior to Undizzy being added in Skullgirls, people were trying to play it like a new-school airdasher with heavy emphasis on long combos, and optimization.

    Aside from a few well known setups (Iron Man, Storm/Sent DHC, Cable AHVBs, etc.), Marvel 2 wasn't really heavy on TODs. It was however a very vortexy, reset intensive game, which is what Skullgirls has become after Undizzy.

    Not at all. Undizzy was added to stop ToD combos.

    The problem was Mike implemented Undizzy after a VERY short while, to compensate for everyone crying about the problems the game had back then. I wouldn't have cared if Mike let people figure it out for a year or so, and then patch it accordingly. But instead, every few months the entirety of the game changed to the point in which I had to re-learn it, instead of improving myself with the mechanics that were already in place.
