Tonight, the guys at Reverge Labs have uploaded everything you could possibly want to know about Skullgirls’s creepy Silent Hill-esque character, Painwheel, to Gametrailers.com. Included is a two part character walkthrough by the real soviet Mike Z himself, as well as a developer commentary by Alex Ahad that goes over the process of creating and animating the character, and a run-down of the state of the game itself. Though she may not be the newest Skullgirls character to be revealed, this is certainly more info about Painwheel than we have been exposed to before. By the end of these three videos, you will feel as if you know entirely too much about mind controlled parasite infested girls with sawblades grafted to their spines. The sneak preview of Valentine at the end doesn’t hurt either.
They also put up the latest edition of Skullgirls Friday Night Fights, and while they are normally pretty good at listing who the players are, this week they just list the fight as a “weekend throwdown.” Well whoever they are these players do a great job showing off some new character tweaks. For example, fewer bikers come out during Parasoul’s biker super when she was hit during it’s execution. Painwheel also gets some more time in the spotlight, and Cerebella continues to prove that she is out to put other grapplers to shame. Also, if you didn’t notice last week, a new “leader” title shows up over the life bars of the team that currently has the life lead. That way you’ll know exactly who is ahead should the match come to a time-out victory, without having to do any life-bar guesswork.
