After a bit of delay, Painwheel’s official character trailer is finally out!  Kind of surprising that her theme is the Maplecrest BGM.  Her character page on the official Skullgirls website has also been updated to credit her voice actress. In other Skullgirls news, the videos for Top 8 from the Skullgirls tournament at SoCal Regionals are being put up on Gametrailers.  The level of play isn’t amazing, which is understandable since the game isn’t even out yet.  So that’s the main reason I haven’t been posting about them here.  With that said, I still think […]

A continuation of the previous post, IPW now has the Painwheel video up, with combos recorded by Mike Z at SoCal Regionals. Painwheel has some really gruesome looking combos, and as expected her flight mechanics gives her a lot of combo possibilities.  Grab resets seem very feasible with her.  Seems like she can also combo off of her grab special in the corner.  Additionally, the video shows a way to combo into and out of her install super using the stagger induced by her nail projectiles. EDIT: The Valentine video is up too!  I’m surprised […]

Ms. Fortune players get a real treat today!  There was a pretty big Skullgirls tournament at SoCal Regionals 2011 last weekend, and Mike Z ended up recording some Ms. Fortune combos for everyone.  It was recorded by Rin Harasaki, the guy who runs the BBVLog Youtube channel, but the video’s an iPlaywinner exclusive.

Tons of new Skullgirls videos on GameTrailers today!  First off is an exclusive Painwheel character walkthrough by Mike Z, in 2 parts.  Lots of valuable information here: pretty much a must watch for anyone who is planning on playing this character.  I really like how she can’t just superjump off the screen and fly there like what is observed all the time in Marvel; it really shows that Mike’s MvC2 experience helped in balancing out her flight mechanic.  Her spin dash special is also really cool, and brings back all sorts of memories of that […]

Recently, Eurogamer posted an article containing snippets of an interview with Peter Barthalow aka Ravidrath from Reverge Labs about accusations of sexism against Skullgirls because of the art style and certain characters having big breasts and panty flashes.  While Peter does bring up many good points, it’s pretty clear that whoever wrote the article took parts of the interview out of context.  Whether or not it was intentional, it does make Reverge appear as if they’re justifying breast bouncing and panty flashes by the fact that their lead animator is female. So Alex Ahad, the […]
