I'm more than likely sticking to this and UMVC3 for now. God help me if the Darkstalkers IV thing actually happens though. I still haven't had the time to get my time in with some older games, Third Strike and VSav especially.

Also, I love how my primary gaming is nothing but fighters at current. :lol

Really, the same thing happened to Dead or Alive. DoA gets labeled softcore porn not just because of booby women, but because there are too many booby women. Not enough men in the cast, so the reasoning seems to go, to prevent it from being just a fap fest.

I think comparing it to DoA is a stretch. DoA didn't get labeled that way cause of it's cast, or even that they were breasty. They got called that because the way it was presented.

If Skullgirls has an "age" setting, then we can make the comparison. Until then, comparing it to pocket fighter or gals fighter is more appropriate.

You're basing that viewpoint on the assumption that people have no issues with the character designs of over sexualized female characters in other fighting games, which may or may not be the case depending on who you talk to. But like Kaijima said, at least those games have aesthetic variety outside of sexually stereotypical female character designs.

I really hope your game becomes a runaway hit with the FGC (and also taps strongly into the casual market) and your team gets to fully realize their vision. I know I'll be there every step of the way.

Are/were you an outsource animator, or do/did you work directly for Reverge? Only because you said "in house"...

Outsource. The ninjas at Reverge handled the main animations (idles, normals, supers, etc) We handled the secondary tier of stuff, which ends up being a shitload of work regardless.

Oh, and I did cleanup work, not taking any credit for the motions themselves. Just inks, shadows and fill in color.

my problem is not oversexualization per say, its the oversexualization of what looks to me like children's cartoons. perhaps if it were done in a mature art style, i would like it. for example, if i had the choice between an oversexualized teen titans fighting game or an oversexualized justice league fighting game, i'd probably go with the justice league.

that said, i'll still give the game a chance because the gameplay looks pretty interesting.

My favorite was the guy on SRK who would change his favorite game's name to "Skullgirls" on Steam. It would lead to dozens of messages asking about the game and how he got access to it haha.

Skullgirls and AH3 share an all female cast and are both 2d fighting games.

I'm honestly quite fuckin' tired of the Skullgirls/Arcana Heart comparsion.

Yeah, it's an all-girl roster.
Yeah, it has fanservice. (Which I actually dislike in SG)

However, the differences is that Skullgirls only have one "loli," which doesn't have fucking big breasts! Not only that, but Arcana Heart 3 is a terrible, terrible fighter. Good concept? Yes, but terrible, terrible execution (so bad) and I bet my left leg that Based Broads would be thrice as better than Pedo Heart. Thrice.

*pictures of godlike fighting game characters, which I all use*

The reason why The King of Fighters get slack is because of two reasons:
- People don't care about non-Capcom fighters.
and/or
- People know that KOF always had such good games that no one care about the minor stuff.

Of course, compare this to other genres of entertainment and it'll look worse or better than them by comparison. But SF has a character that wears a skintight leotard that makes her backside look huge and people call out Skullgirls?

2 few hatas.

And just to get away from the Skullgirls vs MVC2 thing... Things that MvC2 does better than Skullgirls:

1) A slightly larger roster of usable characters - Magneto, Sentinel, Storm, Psylocke, Doom, Cable, Captain Commando as your top tier, then Iron Man, Tron, Juggernaut, Cyclops, maybe one or two others. Maybe twice this roster size as the absolute maximum - but MSP and MSS are extremely dominant.

Thank you for not being a retard.

Because you are a retard, if you honestly think 4-6 characters are only usable (tournament-wise) to win.

2) I'M GONNA TAKE YOU FOR A RI-I-IDE

Stop hatin'.

3) Fun brokenness. Unblockables, 300% combos, etc. If you like that sort of thing.

I do. :(

You in SF yet dude? We could play some Skullgirls next week and admire anime panties. I think I pm'd you my contact info. Hit me up.

p.s. are there any tentacle sex supers in this game? What about official Skullgirls anime pillows? Anything like that in the works?

It was obviously a joke, and anyone calling you out on it would ideally know better than to not give you the benefit of their doubt.

That said, I wouldn't say it was 'clever', simply because lol-10%-mvc2-roster is played out, but it was a nice, tightly woven single sentence that tied a common (silly) grievance about that game with this.

I used the 3-year-old Chinese girl with the biggest bust in the game first with her fire Arcana and I was blowing fools up, BEFORE I used Akane with the Light arcana.

I had to stop playing after that. lol It's so bad.
This was like, a few months ago and it was my first (and last time) playing it.
