fuck you madcatz
It was more fuck you Tekken guys. It wasn't even a tournament, it was exhibition matches. They bumped Skullgirls just to fuck around with Tekken in front of like 20 people, most of whom probably just wanted the quietest room to rest in a bit before going to see something cool.
>you will never go on a bizarre adventure with squigly
Apparently the Madcatz guy just wasn't there when that shit went down, and he would have told the Tekken guys to fuck themselves. Skullgirls got screwed over, but at least it got fixed in time for some of it to air. Hopefully next year whoever is in charge of the stream will be around to enforce schedules, I missed all but the last seconds of the last match thanks to this bullshit
So why doesn't the rest of the FGC take Skullgirls seriously?
That's gay as fuck, hasn't Skullgirls suffered enough.
>not made by capcom so people will dismiss it without a thought
>some people don't like the art style so they will judge it based on that
>people scream pedophilia even though almost all girls are mature besides painwheel and peacock and they are not sexuallized
>people judging the game without playing it
and there is much more
confirmed for never playing the game
Fukua was free though and i don't mean in the way the other dlc was free that was just the first 3 months, she literally comes with the update patch so she will remain free regardless
as alex valle said quit bluntly, the game is good and he plays it quite frequently, but he will never have it as a main game at a tournament due to the art style and the audience they want for their streams and their tournaments. Same reason a lot of TOs will not run DOA5 as main games
its also a reason most players do not play at tournaments
Because while it's not bad, it's mediocre. Why play it when there are other fighting games that do the same style better i.e. MvC2. Skullgirls is just boring, compared to other fighting games.
>but he will never have it as a main game at a tournament due to the art style
Are you fucking kidding me? They disqualify a perfectly viable fighting game from tournaments because of how it fucking looks?
I don't agree with it but I can see where he's coming from. He'll gain the largest audience by being as "family friendly" as possible. It makes sense from a business standpoint.
yes he said in not so many words that it affect what people will think of the FGC so he will not have it as a main game. Some TOs disagree but most agree its better for SG to be a side tournament then a main game due to the art style. Thats why I recorded SG at ECT this year because the only people willing to stream SG was the anime community and they couldn't because they had 4 games and had no time for SG
bunch of articles saying how there streaming a game full of women with big tits beating the crap out of each other with panty shots by a punch of men where children could see would be the reason. They do not want that stigma added to all the other things they get called. They also want to advertise FGC tournaments as family friendly which they think SG will hurt there chances of doing that, again I say most TOs believe this not all of them but since most did decide it was best to pretend it does not exist and the TOs who did want to support could do shit.
your forgetting the fact it did exist at the time it had a huge turn out in the beginning, put top level players would not play it due to the art style so the player base dwindled.
Blazblue is not fine at all at most tournaments, Spooky and other streamers wont stream it anymore, so that's where the anime stream scene came from. The reason blazble gets a free pass is because it has more money which is exactly what you said. Same with MK9 the only reason they streamed it and allowed it as a main game was because of money.
>your forgetting the fact it did exist at the time it had a huge turn out in the beginning, put top level players would not play it due to the art style so the player base dwindled.
All bullshit. The game was never huge and top level player simply didnt play it because there was no actual reason to play it.
This is pants on head retarded levels of tinfoil hattery faggotry.
So they don't have BB on stage either, or at least ban a few characters? Would Mai be barred from being played on the main stage? Where do people draw the line here?
Has kotaku and their ilk beaten the fgc down to this level?
The main difference is that BB has money and gave the most prize money.
Alex Valle interview is fake? It beating BB and Tekken at its first tournament is me making up numbers it all came from facts from the very beginning, what you are saying is because its dead now it was always dead, FUCKING talk to tos go to tournaments they do not sugar coat it say straight up say they will not host it as a main game due to the art style, and SG does not have the money to bribe them. Same reason it never gets streamed on anything but dead air time at tournaments. Please do research and stop being retarded. There is more then enough info from previous tournaments to see your wrong.
Some extreme exaggerations from you to blow whats actually happening out of proportions.
Game was never huge, nobody ever cared about it, interest died out, no tournaments happened.
A community with no players gets no tournaments.
>Same reason it never gets streamed on anything but dead air time at tournaments.
Or maybe the reason is that its fucking dead so it gets streamed where it belongs.
The game died right after it launched. The hype didnt last for shit.
>nobody plays it.
>he didn't see the top 4
you are so wrong
Injustice got in from money
BB got in because of money
KI who has had horrible tournament turn outs every major got in because of money.
It has nothing to do with amount of players especially when SG in the end was catching up to KI this year.
Beat KI in entrants at ECT
it is not a main game because if your not capcom and you have lewd art your game is not getting in, same reason DOA5 is not a fucking main game
no SNK does not but here how that happened, atlus bought it into EVO when KoF13 just came out, it was so hype it has been coasting on hype till this year.
He doesn't know shit, he just posts this kinda crap all the time. It's really all he has in life, so just let him continue.
There has to be a least one legit, hype as fuck game on the main stage. KOF has consistently been the most exciting stuff at Evo, and most tournaments.
The games division cant even afford to make a new KoF game.
Sounds like fucking shit excuses.
Whats with your selective bullshit? Game X buys its way in but Y gets a pass because its so hype?
Why isnt Skullgirls in then when its so huge and popular as you claim?
Got any proof that Atlus bought the way in?
KoF's main appeal visually isn't just nothing but tits and ass like SkullGirls. The cast is more varied and thus more acceptable for a broader audience.
SkullGirls is basically an indie American Arcana Heart in terms of it's visual appeal.
They're working on something, and a new SamSho would cost too much, so a KOF with a few more characters makes the most sense.
And games have been pretty clearly buying in since Injustice. BB probably stays in just cause GG isn't out yet, which is the reason so many people kept with it at all. Keep up with this shit and you might have some basic knowledge by next thread.
but that's not squigls
People refused to bother with KOFXII due to a lack of Mai. Fighters need some sexiness, if you don't realize that yet you haven't been playing long. Otherwise someone would have given Cammy pants by now.
It's just bullshit insecurities and excuses due to Skullgirls not rolling in money. The hype train that came from Big Band getting in shows that people want male characters as much as female ones, so I guess all those articles about representation were less wrong than we first assumed.
>Skullgirls is dead and unhype
shit nigger you didn't even watch the evo stream did you
>What is moderation
Sexiness is a factor. But games like SkullGirls, DoA, and Arcana Heart overdue it. Street Fighter and KoF have it in moderation. With SkullGirls, it's in your face all the fucking time. How is this concept hard to understand?
Hey I've been keeping enough so that I dont have to resort to retarded tinfoil conspiracy theories about animu artstyles and other nonsense.
KoF is in because its hype and people want to see it, Skullgirls isnt because its not. Simple as that.
And BB is currently a way bigger deal in japan than GG is.
Xrd is getting completely obliterated in arcades popularity wise.
So much for keeping up.
no one remembers that smash was not allowed to be a main game till smash fans forked over the cash and now its becoming a main stay.
no one remembers KOF was considered dead in america until atlus started forking over the money to add pot bonuses as it to is becoming a main stay.
idiots arguing over the fact TOs have said numerous times to players faces that SG will not be promoted due to its art style, and the first time it gets a pot bonus it gets advertised.
the FGC are a bunch of scumbags who will do anything for a dollar
Peacock is the best but we need to show love to the others
Now you're just in denial. If your going to sit here and try to tell me that SkullGirls fan-service is just as moderate as Street Fighter and KoF, you're full of shit. It's just as bad as Arcana Heart and DoA.
There are more people that post lewds for Skullgirls than those who actually play the game. That's what happens when you don't appeal to the FGC for a fighting game. Most of the people from the voting cycle already moved on to the next tumblr fad.
>the FGC are a bunch of scumbags who will do anything for a dollar
Well, that IS what they are playing for, when you really come down to it. Just the organizers realize they don't have to put time in the lab to rake in the dough.
It's really bullshit that Injustice gets on stage but DOA5 didn't. I guess Soul Calibur gets no respect these days, but it's actually a far lewder game due to crouch throws and SCV's whole incest vibe.
The goal was to appeal to the FGC, as it was developed by Mike Z and copying MVC2.
It just didnt catch on at all because first of all MVC2 already exists, and secondly a big part of the appeal, the huge roster of it was, was missing in it.
>No one gives a shit about story mode
Yeah, cause Omega Pyrrha shoving her cunt in Patroklos' face and moaning out "Dear, brother..." is limited to the story mode, and not ANY MATCH.
You're jumping around for baby excuses, it would be smarter for you not to comment at all.
>With SkullGirls, it's in your face all the fucking time
That's my point.The FGC isn't going to play a 3v3 fighter with 8 playable characters at launch. They chose their audience when they made the game have an all female fanservice cast.
It's more that it's a game trying to have the most amount of frames of animation in gaming history + it being an indie effort. There's no way they could afford to make 20+ character roster out of the bat. It's slowly getting there now.
The only babies here are the Skull Girls fans bitching and moan about their fan-service filled game getting ignored. Stay mad.
One of SkullGirls biggest visual appeals from it's character design to even character animations IS fan-service. If you're going to try to argue against that you're a moron. Plain and simple.
I've been doing solo Fukua a lot because I'm still afraid of getting rekt with a team.
I can run a good Cerebella as well.
If they wanted they couldve made a 100 fanservice character fighter.
It has nothing to do with the visual style they picked.
But their money was limited and the animation was expensive.
Best girls of course.
Too bad i'll never get Feng to join them ;_;
i believe they cancel it and opted for a physical release instead? Its quite popular there for obvious reasons.
>playing on the dedest platform for SG
For what purpose?
Pretty sure xbox is even more dead.
canon lesbian Chun Liwould upset the delicate sensibilities of Skyullgirls fans. Besides, anime Chinese girls are too common for a game with symbiotic parasite waifus.
it was free and never had problem finding games so saw no reason to get it on pc.
I used to main Ms. Fortune, but for some reason, as I've gotten better at the game in general, I've gotten worse with her.
I main Squigly now, although I'm still fucking dire at fightan. I don't dare play human opponents, because I probably wouldn't get a single hit in.
Just According to Keikaku
Filia: Samson, being fat, actually being a mafia princess
Cerebella: Vice-Versa, being a mobster, being brazilian
Ms. Fortune: Maybe if you're into guro
Double: It's Double
Eliza: Freaky shapeshifting shit
Fukua: See Filia, but replace mafia princess with murderous lunatic
Valentine and Parasoul are the only ones I get hard to
And as for the ones who are "off putting", they aren't nearly grotesque enough for them not to be seen as pandering. The only 2 who is would be Double and Painwheel and yet you can still easily find lewd of them anyway. All the others have an element of pandering in their design.
Just accept it. No idea where this denial is coming from.
Skullgirl babies getting btfo
Face it the game is shit, fighting genre is shit and long dead, the community is full of niggers!
Play a challenging game with a supportive community like DOTA.
>want to play
>have it for PS3
>don't want to drop 15 bucks and another 5 on Squigly just so I can play in lobbies
Morrigan, Lilith, Felicia and Hsien-Ko are all perfectly fappable
No idea what people like about Q-Bee though
But at least none of the girls in Darkstalkers had a dude growing out of their head or a giant living man arms hat or were actually a bunch of freely shapeshifting flesh and blood around a sentient skeleton
>Talking about the game and no the girls
You're an idiot. No one ever talks about gameplay in these /v/ threads. It's always waifu discussions because the game has nothing to offer.
>2 of skullgirls top 4 players were gay furries
>another was a pale pasty dude who unironically wears fedoras everywhere
SG community confirmed for pariahs not accepted anywhere but in a niche game with almost no competitive community.
madcatz was right to limit your exposure lest your poisonous fanbase kill them like it did autumn games
I'M STILL WAITING ON A BIG BULL ALT LAB ZERO
Pretty new to the game
so far i really enjoy teaming up peacock and big band
i'm scared to play online
SG's soundtrack is good but completely ill fitting for a fighting game.
Srsly who wants to listen to these slow jazz tunes in the middle of fast paced action.
All the good in SG is overshadowed by one half baked decision after another.
I always run Valentine and Double
>implying you wouldn't
>hype as shit
it was pretty cool
>decide to warm up in training mode for a few minutes before joining the lobby
>lobby is gone
so pissed that they sponsored the Madcatz stream and still got bumped
and they have no choice about it because if they raise a stink they get pushed away even more, if they dont keep trying then they dont get the exposure
just have to keep laying back and being a doormat and saying thank you and sucking up to every drop of attention the game gets
At least things cant possibly get worse for Mike from here
>decide to try Skullgirls
>spend a good few hours practicing combos, going through the entire tutorial, etc.
>can't get out of the combo
>still can't get out of the combo
>75% of my health is gone
well, I'm still new.
I must be doing something wrong
>look up matches on youtube
>matches are basically a race to see who can start the first combo
well, there's always the porn, I guess.
It actually does technically have a designated one but it doesn't have a personality, it has no sexual organs, no capacity to make independent decisions outside of protecting itself and its wielder or things it was trained to do, and its level of sentience is somewhere around the level of an unintelligent animal.
So it's really still just an object that's somewhat kind of alive. Basically it makes no difference either way and you should really ust see it as a part of Cerebella of sorts.
>Could of gotten a chick that used birds to move around the map
