Skullgirls Encore on Xbox 360 awaiting compatibility pack for bug fixes

After a successful crowdfunding campaign and a change in publisher, Skullgirls Encore is now pumping out content in earnest for both PC and PS3. Unfortunately, the Xbox 360 version of the game is still waiting to make the formal transition to Encore.

The fighting game's getting a new mode, 'The Typing of the Skullgirls Encore,' which has players typing phrases to pull off Super moves.

Skullgirls crowd-funding ends at $830K, multiple new characters coming

Konami accused of bank loan fraud over Def Jam Rapstar

We know that Def Jam Rapstar developer 4mm Games is in financial and legal troubles. But the game's publishers, Konami and Autumn Games, are now facing their own court battle, as a bank has accused the companies of fraud over a loan to finance the game.

City National Bank in Los Angeles has filed a claim that it was defrauded of $14 million by Konami and Autumn. The bank accuses the companies of lying about their financial conditions to secure the credit for the game, without ever intending to pay it back as promised. The bank also points out that it hasn't been paid back at all for the loan yet.

Skullgirls review

Skullgirls review

Skullgirls in many ways pays homage to classic 2D fighters. Its art style and overall presentation show reverence for the heyday when numerous titles competed for the fighting game crown. Likewise, its fighting mechanics often borrow from the heroes of the genre. Once the final take is complete, however, Reverge Labs firmly establishes its new fighter as more than merely an ardent admirer of the craft. Skullgirls stakes its claim as a new star in the making.
