Who likes BUGFIXES for BUGFIXES?

YOU?!
...oh, we've been through this. Fine.

General
- Fixed airthrows not properly putting you in Stage 2 as a result of the previous fix for mcpeanuts' IPS bug. Everything is back to normal now, with mcpeanuts' fix still there. How do you like that, mcpeanuts? Now your name is famous! Namous?

It's done. I fixed it. Go home. Play some games, maybe have some tea, or an amazing cookie. And no, that's not sponsored, they're just amazing.

Who likes BUGFIXES?

You?
....oh.

You?
....oh.

YOU?!
....look, let's just pretend you nodded, okay? Okay.

General
- Added Tolk to the main game! Rejoice, those of you who know what Tolk is. :^) Those who don't know can Google it!
- Brought the fix for mcpeanuts' projectile-combo-start IPS bug over to retail. Rejoice, those of you who know what that bug was.
- Possibly fixed an online framerate issue people were having on Windows. (Possibly not, but I tried...!) Rejoice, those of you who had that problem and maybe-don't-have-it-now.

If it didn't help any online framerate issues which began with the previous build, please comment. There will always be some rollbacks, please don't comment on those. (^.^)

J.R.R. Tolken. There, I did it.

Got this game because I heard you can play the trumpet with one of the DLC characters.

Turns out you can fight people in it, too.

This is the game that got me into fighting games. It has an amazing tutorial explaining the mechanics of the game and fighting games in general, there is a very well made Infinite prevention system combined with a system to prevent Touch of Death combos. The inputs are very forgiving, to the point where I can do the 360 motion on a keyboard. Plus, all the characters feel unique, including Fukua (A joke character made as a half April Fool's joke half shot at Capcom's Decapre reveal who the players liked so much she was made a permanent addition to the cast). Going beyond the mechanics, the game is amazing to look at, with every frame of animation in the game being hand-drawn, and there are a TON of frames in this game. The only downside is the online, but not because of the netcode (The netcode is pretty damn good, you only really have problems if your ping is 200+). I am going to be blunt, this is the kind of game you only play quick match on if you REALLY know what you are doing. Still, for $10(Originally $15) to start off and another $10 for all the DLC characters (Who were free for the first 3 months after their release, so Lab Zero was still taking a pretty big hit to their wallets after releasing them, all things considered), there are far worse titles on this platform you could buy and play with your friends.

Skullgirls is a pretty fun game. The characters are pretty interesting, and there's at least one for every playstyle. If you like grappling, you can play as Cerebella (or Beowulf, if you have him), if you like being quick/mobile, you have Valentine and Ms. Fortune. Or maybe you like whatever you'd describe Double's playstyle as. Point is, it's very easy to find a main. This game also has the option to play as a team of 2 or 3, with each member having any normal or special move to use as an assist attack, allowing for the player the get creative with combos. But this also means the game has a very high skill ceiling, as evidenced by the tournament scene. Or by playing a ranked match (which is always a great idea). So this game requires a lot of practice if you want to go to a tournament like Combo Breaker. Despite that, I have a lot of fun with this game, I kind of regret having to get this as a gift.

Skullgirls is a fantastic fighting game, with an intricate input list and an overpowering amount of combos that would make "Super Smash Bros." jealous.

For the people who use the keyboard, I commend you. For others (Like myself) take advantage of the partial controller support. Your gonna need it.
