Skull Girls

(big image)
( Click to show/hide )

Because the base game and one of the DLC characters are available for free on Steam this weekend, (and on sale, too) I'm making a thread to see if anyone has tried it or wants to play a few rounds.

It's a crowd-funded fighting game with a focus on being fast paced, fluid cartoon animation, and an all female roster who (mostly) have distinguished suggestively prominent designs.

I'm not going say whether that last bit a good thing or a bad thing, but for most people it's either a big turn off or turn on so I feel I should mention it. Either way it looks like a fun game.

Re: Skull Girls

Lame game and it's probably gonna cause a bunch of really ugly hats to be added to TF2 so it's extra lame.

I seriously have yet to make a thread in these forums about a game without one of the first three posts being negative and dismissive without any real reason cited or opportunity for meaningful conversation provided.

Why...."Hello Ms. Valentine!"

Guess I'll be logging on Steam this weekend and downloading this so as to further appreciate the gameplay.

Not all posts will be positive. I cited a pretty good reason, at least imo. This game is causing the TF2 community(the ones that pay attention to this sort of thing) to divide over their crappy hats. TF2 is silly but this stuff is just over the top, should be like Halloween restricted or something. I think it's possible to have a meaningful conversation about this aspect of the game.

You only said that the waves it made among TF2 players made the game "extra lame." You outright declared the game was lame in your first sentence and did not present any reasoning for it, which I perceive as behavior negative to the forums and tantamount to trolling.

If you are insinuating that Skullgirls has ridiculous hats then I will not disagree, but if you are seriously denouncing the game because of that then I again would have to believe you were trolling.

Further more, the cited reason is literally not an aspect of the game. It is entirely an aspect of the TF2 hat-making community. While you are entitled to your opinion that you addressed an acceptable enough issue to claim the game wasn't note worthy (for you or for others) and thus the topic irrelevant, (again, for you or for others) I cannot respect it at this time.

I imagine there are several, several things you would legitimately dislike about the actual game as well as a few things you'd be aite' with. These would be preferable topics.



So, I played this game like mad last night. The tutorial is intense: they completely expect everyone who's going to use it to be a casual player and it doesn't end until it's beaten all the casual out of them. Whereas normal fighting games last five or so minutes and just have the player execute some kind of action several times before moving onto the next concept, Skullgirls has a tutorial broken into multiple chapters ending in tests that won't be designated as "completed" until they can preform complex defenses, maneuvers, and combos with great speed and consistency. After about two hours I still have yet to beat it, but damn if it didn't ready me for play like no other game has before.

The online matching system was great. Fights can be brutal but they set up really quickly and usually last anywhere from a minute and a half to two and a half. I got my romp womped by all the vets initially, but eventually I began getting paired with all the other people who were taking advantage of the free weekend and thrashed' 'em. I even made a few Steam friends doing it.

I'd felt like my library was in need of a fighting game, and for a while my eyes were set on The King of Fighters XIII, but I'm now positive that I'm enjoying this one more than any other I'll play for a long, long time. I ended up putting down $5.20 for it by trading with a guy who picked up a four pack of the game. Maybe it's just the animated thighs talking, but I do believe I have once again become an over zealous fan of something within one night. Filia ftw!

Well that explains why you got so defensive over me not liking the game. I was confused because I don't recall seeing you get so rustled when people bash other games they don't like. Seems like when I make topic about game stuff and people post like I did no one calls them trolls or posts a big rant about it.

It seems like you want me to elaborate about why I think the game is lame, ok. Obviously I hate the characters artwork. Besides that I think the focus on long combos is hurting the fighting game genre and this game is embracing it enthusiastically. When you have to sit there and watch yourself in yet another juggle combo it drains the fun right out of it. I also hear the controls are meant for controller so the keyboard defaults are practically unusable in their default state.

You have the wrong idea about the hat issue. The Skullgirls devs released pictures of these hats long before Valve ever approved of them being in the game at all. They had to take it back and resubmit them through the workshop to be voted on. These are not user made stuff(as far as I can remember). If it was user made I wouldn't care as much because that stuff hardly ever gets added anyways. Dev created hats do. It would be unfair and annoying to have these silly anime hats in the game when they restrict all kinds of decent halloween stuff and completely ignore awesome workshop stuff. So that's why that issue bugs me.

I didn't post to troll or cause drama I just posted how I feel about this game. I've been aware of it for months and I've discussed it a few times on the Steam forums so I formed an opinion long before you brought it up, don't take it so personally.

Re: Skull Girls

Oh, so it's only free for the duration of the weekend and if you wish to continue playing the game on Monday you'll have to purchase it?

I misread your original post as you could own the game on a permanent basis for free if you downloaded it this weekend.

Re: Skull Girls

Well, I haven't played it yet so I personally don't know how it
feels, but I'm not a fan of the art style, I never liked the anime
look and it makes it difficult for me to see what's going on.

From what I see it looks like it takes a large number of ideas from
MvC2 including hypers, snap backs, and 3 character teams. Only it
doesn't have the massive air combos that MvC2 had.

So personally, I'm not going to play it.

On a side note, I agree with DB, the TF2 hats are horrendous.

I wouldn't be shocked if they were added as Valve will make some
extra cash. But I personally feel they are very out of place for
TF2 which takes place in the late 1960s, so I hope they aren't
added.

Well, Jazz Pyro is nice.

The only time I defended the game at all was in response to the whole hat thing. I assure you that, in so far as I know myself as of late, I did not and would not pull a Mr. Hyde and bitterly criticize you (with sincerity) simply for not liking something that I do, especially when I do not expect it to have much appeal to you in the first place. To do so would indicate I am either clinically insane or that I genuinely feel as if it were of some great importance that every single person I can reach out to need board whatever hype train I'm on or be branded a heretic.

As far as I knew, you had never heard of the game, saw some TF2 modder's design, and blew the whole off. I appreciate the elaboration of your opinion greatly as it provides clarity and discussion potential. I believe that otherwise just leaving a fragment idea of criticism, whatever it may be directed towards, is not beneficial to the forums and will work to undo the community and discourage threads. I don't like that, and I think it's an ever increasingly trendy thing to do on the internet.

Yeah, this was something I learned the hard way last night. Supposedly there's a button to get out of combos if the enemy tries to run the same series of hits multiple times in the same attack but it feels like a crap shoot.

Yeah, playing with a keyboard is a pretty fruitless endeavor. Then again, aren't most fighting games on PC meant for controller?

Well hell, that's way deeper than I thought it was. I always like to think Valve keeps their user base the number one priority, I suppose they are still a business. Still though, it doesn't look like Valve picked up the hats. What about stuff like Shogun II and Sleeping Dogs? Hell, those got entire weapon sets and the latter got a map.

Re: Skull Girls

There was a free weekend on Steam.
Don't worry, it's over and interest is nonexistent once more.

My guess it was the free-to-play weekend, (over now) coupled with an installed fanbase that looks pretty in-tune with the developers via their indiegogo programs for the game.

Not a big following for it, but more of a niche.

I feel kinda stupid for having written Skullgirls as two words in the thread title.

Anyways, Big Band just came out. He's priced at $0.00 for three months and he'll be $5.00 after Summer. They'll probably do another free weekend, too.

Re: Skull Girls

If another free weekend happens I'll give the game a more serious shot, hopefully getting past the tutorial this time.

It's funny, but I never realized that the tutorial is basically the true single-player campaign.

Ground combo ending in a launch, air combo, and then a special move followed immediately by block buster.

I never really saw the whole point of practice mode in fighting games, but it makes more sense in one that has such a fixation on long and precise combos.

You can go so far as to give your dummy NPC the maximum capability of escaping your combo through recoveries or taking advantage of the smallest moment of hit-stun gap, meaning you'd be learning to follow up on your moves in a way that not even the best player in the world could interrupt.
