Played a couple matches against Neuro on Street Fighter 3: Third Stike yesterday and remembered how much more bloody fun that game is compared to SF4. Can we all just start playing that game instead. Please? Seriously? :(

I refuse.


The input in SF4 is the only time that it's felt right for me in a Street Fighter game. Who knows, maybe it was the controller I was using but when I recently played Alpha I could barely do anything.

It's not an Alpha series game though. The game is its own thing, hell, I would go as far as saying it's probably the most unique game in the whole SF legacy. The fact it's got parry is bloody amazing since that thing alone brings out so many epic moments. That's the reason why the Daigo thing is so bloody awesome.

Skullgirls is now available to preorder on Steam! This game is frankly fantastic, and has one of the best tutorial systems ever in a fighting game, so if you're new and want to get involved I can't recommend it enough.

Also, preordering means you get instant access to the beta! It's been long enough! Gonna grab this in the next day or so.

Yeah. Just a little bump to say you can now buy skullgirls on steam for £11.99 (Not sure the cost in funny money) :)

Solo Fortune is too much fun, though I might try running Fortune/Valentine more seriously. Not sure.

I love the feel of too many characters in this game that I don't know who to play as a main team so I'm just soloing Cerebella. Might do Peacock and Cerebella though, be nice to have someone to cover my 'Bella as she tries to get in :)

Also, is the lobby system actually in yet :(?

Not yet! But they've announced an official prerelease tournament for 14th-21st, so I can only assume it's going to be out before then.

Steam messed up and had an unfinished version of an old build out for a while, and that apparently had a half-finished lobby on a 2+ month old build, and they're pushing daily builds now I think, so it's almost definitely coming sooner rather than later.

I love the tutorial in it but I'd love a way to display BnB combos for every character.

Doesn't it do that when you get into the Character tutorials? Least, It seemed like it gave you some pretty good BnB's for Parasoul at the very least :)

Gives you a few for the demon haired girl but I don't want to play as her, I want to annoy the shit out of people with Peacock.

Arcade mode is enabled!

While you COULD just go Extras > Credits, here's what I suggest.

1) Prepare your drink of choice and an optional cigar if you're a smoker
2) Get yourself in a highly classy situation
3) Beat arcade mode
4) Marvel at the brilliance that is the credits music that you've just EARNED and feel yourself becoming infinitely classier.

On the flip side. Story mode has been disabled which some people are making a big fuss about...

Apparently some people buy fighting games for the plot...

What's that you say? Skullgirls lobby rumoured for tomorrow or friday?

AND the announcement on Steam of the KOF XIII Steam Edition? Here's hoping for better netcode!

Okay, the KOF trailer was taken down. Ah well! It's coming soon!
