Tournaments! Frosty Faustings is this weekend! Combo Breaker is in May! Salty is every week!

Frosty Faustings is RIGHT NOW!

If you're missin' out on watching people get bopped in Skullgirls, the top 8 from Frosty Faustings will be broadcast on twitch.tv/meleeeveryday this Saturday at noon PST / 3pm EST / etc.

(Also, twitch.tv/rsblackrose is broadcasting the entire pools and finals for Guilty Gear Accent Core +R at Frosty Faustings today, right now, so stop on by and watch another game I really love!)

Full Frosty's schedule is here.

Combo Breaker is in May, in Illinois and always in my heart!

Like I keep sayin', if you're only going to travel to one tournament this year, go to Combo Breaker. It's the best tournament series I have ever attended, and that's not hyperbole. 24-hour venue with available stations for all tournament games. You wanna play at 4AM? Go on down to the venue! And last year they had GIANT PRETZELS!
[Mike Z Stamp of Approval :^]

If you play Skullgirls and can get there, or even if you don't play SG, REGISTER ALREADY! Support the tournaments that have supported us for years!

Salty is every week!

Each and every Friday from ~8:30 PST to 2-3AM, Game Realms in Burbank, California hosts Salty! and broadcasts on twitch.tv/game_realms. There's SG, there's GG, there's VSav, there's sometimes 3s, and heck, I even talk on the mic. NSFW.
(It was formerly known as Salty Cupcakes, but there are no more cupcakes so we replaced them with an exclamation point.)

The opinions expressed herein are my own, obviously. Lab Zero The Corporation does not endorse them, and gave me a stern look for even having them.

This is it: The moment we've prepared for, all these years!

And lo, the Beta becometh Retail; the transformation is complete. Prepare the rites, my brethren and sistren, for now is the moment of truth!

SG2E+ is live!

Shout it from the rooftops, dance in the streets, play some video games maybe...with the release of the US PS4 and Vita patches just in time for Frosty Faustings, it's time to update the Steam version too!

Full patch notes here! If there are any problems with the Linux or Mac builds functioning, please let us know, they were created literally minutes ago. :^P

No, this does not yet include Japanese voices, those are waiting until after the physical version is out, but this is the end for gameplay updates. And yes, the 360 version is still getting lobbies! :^)

It's an old version of the credits, heh, oh well...

Title screen build ID 15489.

Also:
The old retail SG2E build has been archived. If you've ever got a hankerin' for some o' dat previous version (for some strange reason), go to your Steam library, rightclick Skullgirls, Properties, choose the Betas tab, enter
ireallyfearchange
in the box and click Check Code. Then you can choose between the old version and the current version using the dropdown menu on that tab.
