    Want to get your friends into Skullgirls? Have you been staring longingly at that Big Band in the windowsill? Want to snag that color pack for mere pennies? Now's your chance!

    From right now until Sunday, Skullgirls Encore will be free to play on Steam! The entirety of Steam's userbase will be able to take Skullgirls for a spin, no strings attached. Tell your friends; once they inevitably fall in love with Skullgirls, they'll be able to purchase it at a humongously discounted 80% off ($2.99) until June 8! This discount extends to all DLC (minus Beowulf, who is still free!), so there's never been a better time to jump on the wagon.

      Wondering about 2nd Encore being an update or dlc for pc? I'll buy SG on steam before the sale ends, or hell, right now if I a get concrete answer. Whenever someone gets around to it, of course...

      Sometimes I think we need to make SG a cult.

      Cthulhu cult-level I mean, where we creepely search for new members and sacrifices

      They say it will be dlc sometime after it has been released for ps4 but it's not official

      PC for all intent and purpose will still be 2nd Encore officially. What is debatable is whether or not the 2nd Encore PS4/Vita exclusive content will eventually arrive on PC too because Lab 0 can't officially announce that it is happening or not yet, but they already expressed interest in wanting to do it.

      What was also already confirmed was the 2nd Encore PS4/Vita content would be paid dlc if it does arrive in PC because this wasn't funded IGG content so Lab 0/other parties would expect some form of compensation for the work they did since people have to buy new PS4/Vita copies to experience that content. Also if it does happen it's unlikely it will be at the same time when PS4/Vita version drops for the sake of pushing units.

      Thanks, well I'm off to get a card... But would the dlc be similar to what happened S/AESF4 on steam. Also, did L0 mention whether SG:2ndE for PS4/Vita will be crossbuy or seperate purchases?

      Very, though if they're going to do that limited physical release Peter has mentioned I'll still ending up having to buy it twice. At least it's money well spent.

      Also, just a reminder that the gameplay balance in the current PC version is what you will be getting in 2nd Encore on Sony consoles. 2E comes with extra modes and voice acting, but will have the same balance as all other formats.

      EDIT: Re physical release: Sony have a system in place that now allows devs to produce limited runs of their digital only games. L0 have not confirmed that this will ever happen, just that it could.

      You haven't seen Fighterpedia - Skullgirls, BABY!!!, unfortunate. Matt and Woolie from TBFP were some the few people who supported SG during and after its release. Quite silly though.

      Booklets are kind of rare these days, and as said, this is not certain.

      I know who they are, just never watched Fighterpedia. Didn't their Skullgirls rap get taken down recently?

      Yeah, from what I can tell Machinima took it down for what I assume is "False Advertisement". That being all the ridiculous physical goods that come with pre-ordering the game.

      So they basically got it taken down because Machinima has no sense of humor.
      Seems true to Machinima's reputation

      Although I would have bought it honestly

      This is great, some of my friends who don't really play fighting games are giving Skullgirls a try. One of them seems to love Beowulf.

      The best part about this free week is that it's helping my friend get into Skullgirls. He originally wasn't interested, but he really enjoys the game, now.
