GDC 11: You need to pay attention to Skullgirls


6:50 PM on 03.03.2011



Lead Designer Mike Zaimont is the man behind Skullgirls. He's also a pro fighter who's competed in EVO tournaments, so he knows a thing or two about making a good fighting game. I got some really good hands-on time with this new fighter, but I'll have a more detailed preview next week when all the chaos of GDC has subsided.

In the mean time, I do want to at least put this game on your radar as it has the serious potential of becoming a big fighting franchise. What really fascinates me about Skullgirls is that it's actually being designed with exploiters in mind so people can't abuse the system. Fighting fans know what I'm talking about here. Fighting games tend to suffer from combo moves that can't be broken if the player knows what they're doing. Skullgirls looks to answer that in order to make the experience fair for everyone.

I promise I'll have more for you soon and explain in detail how this all will work. Until then, check out the beautiful art style of the game done by Kinuko and Persona, two amazing artists from the Mecha Fetus Visublog.

EVO's best moments are often found off-screen

As someone who watches EVO but hasn't yet and will likely never attend the fighting game tournament in person, I adore Richard Li's videos -- they truly bring out the human element of the competition. It occasionally comes t...more

Tekken 7 extended trailer is twice as overdramatic

I can't believe Liam Neeson has already made seven of these. There was a trailer for this recently, but this Comic-Con trailer is twice and long, therefore twice as good. You can say, "It's not about the length of the trailer, it's how you use it" all you like, but it's a half truth.  Also, please never say Heihachi again.more

Marie's persona in Persona 4 Ultimax is so pretty

Beating on people with your handbag is less cool than beating on people with a folding chair, but it's still pretty cool. Also, throwing presents at them. Very sweet. Marie will be paid DLC for Persona 4 Ultimax. And can we talk about that music? So fun. more
