What's the current status of Skullgirls on 360?


#1

Did I buy this game on the wrong platform?

Last I heard the Slightly Different Edition patch was still “in approval” on Xbox 360. Now Squigly is starting to be finalized, which probably means more clog on the 360 front once she’s finished.

I know MS is pretty mean about getting content approved for Xbox LIVE Marketplace but I never thought they’d be this hard to work with.


#2

Yes. Also, Squigly is far from being finalized.


#3

Moved to the correct forum. :tup:


#4

There’s been many delays on both platforms, but unfortunately especially the 360. There finally looks to be some traction being made on that front with a new patch format being made for the 360. Give it some more time and it should be an even playing field on both platforms.

And yes, Squigly is faaaaar from being finalized. What you saw revealed on the stream was literally the progress they’d made on Squigs before the team was let go from Reverge months ago. MikeZ just cobbled it together into a vaguely presentable form as a special present.


#5

I thought this was the “strategy zone”. This isn’t really focused discussion, it’s just casual chat.


#6

Regardless, I’ve seen 15+ new and unique players to Skullgirls in the past few days alone; all the donation drive business and Evo support has brought people in. There have also been people playing who I haven’t seen in months. All in all, the Xbox scene is returning. Once the patch drops, I’m sure things will really pick up speed.


#7

Alright, alright…Squigly’s “getting there”.

More work has been done since they haven’t been working on the game at all, we’ll say that.


#8

Considering they just announced it for Japan, something has to be coming.


#9

Here’s my impression of the 360 patch’s status, based on Salty Cupcakes comments in the past couple weeks:
[LIST=1]
[]They’ve figured out a way around Microsoft’s size limitation and have resubmitted the patch for review.
[
]Konami’s lawyers have advised Mike to not make public comments about patch progress going forward.
[/LIST]
So yeah. Could be anywhere from two weeks to four months at this point.


#10

Now you get to wait like me for the 360 patch :3


#11

Pull an Oil R though, by all means~


#12

I’m resurrecting this thread to point out I feel like anyone who is on the 360 version should feel some apprehension towards contributing to Skullgirls’ DLC development because of this issue.<br>


#13

Apparently, if the patch does not get through to the 360 by the time Squigly is done, the update on the 360 that brings Squigly will also have the previous update. So it’ll all be up to date by then.<div><br></div><div>It’s really a shame that the 360 patching system is being so nebulous about it, though.</div>

U dunno. If anything they should want to contribute.  More dlc means more money for Microsoft. Money tends to make problems go away when thrown in the right direction. And we all know hoe much M$ loves money.<br>


#15

im only on 360 and ive made a contribution to the cause. im thinking of adding more too later on. i really hope were gonna get the patch before squigly is released though that wait is too long. i have a real bad feeling that is what is gonna happen though. please somebody prove me wrong.<br>

Are you me? Anyway, I play on 360, donated, gonna give more later, and I’m really pulling for it to be released before she is. However, if that doesn’t happen, I’ve got faith Mike will find away for us to get dat glorious patch.<br>

<font face=“Arial, Verdana” size=“2”><span style=“line-height: normal;”>From what I understand it’s guaranteed that we’ll get the patch at the very least when Squigly is released. Squigly won’t even work without it in the first place. Also, MS treats DLC different than just straight up patches, and games use DLC to get patches in fairly often from what I understand.</span></font>


#18

My worst fear is that Squigly gets held up along with the patch.<br><br>But like I said, I’m sure Mike’ll find a way.<br>


#19

Last I heard it was “Fuck You” said Microsoft.

Mike’s own words were “Yes we heard from Microsoft, no they said keep waiting.”<br><br>So yea, a big ol’ fornicate thou.<br>
