Skullgirls

Skullgirls roster almost doubled as funding campaign ends

IndieGoGo raises $829,829 holy crap

The IndieGoGo campaign for Skullgirls has ended, raking in a staggering $829,829. What an adorable amount to raise! This sum of money allows the team at Lab Zero Games to create five additional characters for the game, adding on to the original roster of eight. Squigly, Big Band, Robo-Fortune, and two mystery characters, decided by user votes, will be developed for the game, each with stories and stages included.

In addition to the characters, Mane6, the developers behind My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic will be allowed to use the Z Engine for their pony pummeling next fighting game. I'm so happy for the Lab Zero team for their more-than-successful campaign. It's wonderful to see the power of a community go to work.

Congratulations to Lab Zero Games and to everyone who decided to back the project. You did it!

I spent all last night playing Day of Defeat: Source. If only Valve gave it even half the attention it did to TF2 or CS:S...

Toonami is running a poll right now at [url]www.toonami.com/poll[/url] where one of the questions is which show you'd want un-cancelled. Oh, Teen Titans is included? That's curious...

Every time I hear "I don't understand why people like _____ game", I get annoyed. Of course you understand, if you've listened to what those people were saying. You just don't agree, and that's A-OK. I HATE Twilight, but I understand why people like it.

Just tried playing the first Bayonetta game... it was really bad. Honestly I don't understand why Platinum games are so well regarded. None of them are really worthwhile.

I doubt I'll use it much but I'm totally fine with a block/ignore feature. Everyone has a right to speak, but I don't think anyone has a right to be heard. If this place played country music I'd want a mute button, basically :p.

Mall haul today (plus I split a BEAUTIFUL Star Wars Slave I with my brother). Any thoughts on Haze? Wanted to play it back when it came out and I had no PS3. For a dollar you can't go wrong!

I'm not gonna lie, I don't feel "good" about the upcoming "ignore" feature. Maybe it's just me, but I don't like the idea that people can mute other people because they don't agree with them. Spammers and trolls, sure, but not regular community members.
