>> No. 184518
Got Skullgirls recently as a gift, and while I'm very much enjoying it overall, it's been so long since I played a fighting game, that I forgot about one of the genre's most regular features: overpowered final bosses that make you want to strangle every living thing in a ten-foot radius of yourself while playing.

Ha. Yeah, Marie's a complete pain in the ass. I suffered through her when I was playing Story mode but when I'm doing Arcade I just quit out. There's just no reason to do so.
>> No. 184530
She's tough; but not super tough like a lot of bosses can be. MvC2's boss for instance.
Glad you're liking the game though! Need to set some time aside and start playing on Steam since I have yet to touch it despite playing it on consoles a few times.

Oh and if anyone wants a copy of Skullgirls; I picked up an extra one as a "gift" I can trade to someone or exchange or whatever.

Her idle and walk animation are amazing; she bursts with a sense of elegance and confidence and I like how (at least her head) she's always in profile like ancient Egyptian art.

Here's hoping she's everything I imagine her to be. (A slow heavy hitter with great range in her skinned form with some Zazamel like grabs and moves with her weapon, and a quick low damage rushdown character when she transforms into her parasite. Also no charge moves or weird Vega like inputs)

That's also a reason dudebros won't touch it. They want to ogle at sexy girls, sure. But they don't want to play as sexy girls because that makes them feel emasculated for some reason.

I got the hang of fighting Marie not long after my post expressing my extreme frustration in that department, and now I have little trouble getting to and then beating her with any character. Am considering throwing myself to the lions and upping the difficulty.

Also really just so happy with Skullgirls overall. I spent years away from the fighting game genre, and not only did Skullgirls remind me of what I love about fighters, it almost immediately started bucking for my favorite in the genre. I just dearly wish I'd joined the party sooner.

Its time time will come. Eventually it'll get the wider appreciation it deserves, and for now it's got its own vibrant niche.

If you like how Mortal Kombat looks, feels, and plays, you'll like Injustice. If you do not like Mortal Kombat; you will not like Injustice.

Personally I think it's a terrible game and I regret purchasing it and the season pass. I'll never get all that money back.
>> No. 185314
Eh, I didn't like MK, but I enjoy Injustice quite a bit. The latest edition with all the DLC is pretty good value for your money. Inputs take a bit of getting used to (you need to put in your entire combo in one go instead of using timing like in most fighting games), but it's got a great roster of characters that all feel different from one another. The last few patches have really improved things from a balance perspective, as well.

There's a demo available for the console versions, IIRC. Check it out.

In a bit of good news for the Most Cursed Game of the 2010s:

>PlayStation 3 users will be able to download [Skullgirls Encore] next Tuesday, and the game will be free to those who purchased the previous title. Skullgirls Encore will only be available in the US next week, however, Peter Bartholow of Lab Zero Games mentioned on NeoGAF that the team is shooting for a European release the following week, although there are currently no guarantees.

>Bartholow also stated that Xbox 360 owners will have to wait a bit for Encore, as the transition is taking longer due to more companies being involved with the project. Lab Zero plans to submit the update to Microsoft some time next week.

Come the fuck on Capcom; at least TRY.

You just need a bunch of practice until you can get a 'feel' for when you have a charge and when you don't.

To get a little extra charge time, you can input your moves like this

B (charge), F, B, Punch

That way, you are immediately charging Back again on the exact frame when your first charge move comes out. You can also charge moves pre-round in a lot of cases.

Basically you can charge whenever you want. You can charge mid-jump, doing normals/specials, during the "Ready? FIGHT" round-start, during ultra animations. Pretty much anything other than walking forward is fair game.
>> No. 186156

Speaking of mid-jump charging, Decapre has a mid-air Cannon Drill that uses a charge motion, which means you can only pull it off by jumping backwards while charging.

If anything, Capcom made it harder for Decapre to spam certain moves in the same way that, say, Shotos spam fireballs — but she'll likely have some really tricky techniques to make up for it. (The Final Round commentators noted that she could probably wipe the floor with Dhalsim, so tournament play may have become a lot more interesting if she becomes a regular sight on the tourney circuit.)

>Come the fuck on Capcom; at least TRY.
Eh, I'm honestly surprised we got as much as we did. The Skullgirls kickstarter gave us a glimpse of how expensive designing, creating and programming a new character actually is, and I have no doubt that it's actually a lot more for a fully 3D model. With Capcom being in the financial state it is, their budget for USF4 (the fourth update for a 5 year old game) was probably very small.

That said, she looks damn fun to play.
