Review: Skullgirls
by Patrick Hancock

Skullgirls is a downloadable fighting game in a world brimming with big-budget, disc-based games from the same genre. Holding it to the same standards might seem unfair, but expectations from fighting game players are the same regardless of how the game is delivered. That being said, Skullgirls nails some aspects that the big names seem to have overlooked while simultaneously overlooking others.

Mike "Mike Z" Zaimont is one of the project leaders of Skullgirls and is also a well-known player in the fighting game scene. In fact, this is the same guy who taught many "weak American minds" like myself how to play Iron Tager in BlazBlue! Needless to say, he knows what he likes in fighting games, so having such a strong influence in the development of one definitely yielded some interesting results.

Hands-on with Parasoul from Skullgirls

If you are a fan of fighting games, odds are that Skullgirls is on your radar. Developed by Reverge Labs, this upcoming game features gorgeous 2D graphics and a fighting game engine developed by tournament fighter Mike "Mike Z" Zaimont. Amongst my coverage at EVO this year, I had a chance to sit down with Mike Z and check out the recently announced character "Parasoul" from one fighting game fan to another.

Parasoul is the princess of the Canopy Kingdom and was given a special umbrella that allows her to throw balls of napalm that are instrumental to her play style. She also happens to be in charge of the kingdom's military and that command is apparent in her moveset.

Interview: Alex Ahad's inspirations behind Skullgirls

Making my way through the flood of cosplayers at Anime Expo this year I found myself with the chance to pick the brain of Alex Ahad, creator and art director of Skullgirls. If you don't know much about this sexy hand-drawn 2D...
