Lab Zero to give MLP project Skullgirls engine if $725,000 mark is reached, Skullgirls linux port in the making Lab Zero has recently added a new goal to their Indiegogo campaign. If they can pass the $725,000 mark in the remaining 11 days of their campaign, they will give Mane6 their fighting game engine for free.

Mane6 are the developers behind My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic which was recently cancelled by Hasbro due to copyright infringement. The fighting game engine would be used for the current project that is being developed which is not the cancelled project, but a slightly different game that is being led by one of the creators of My Little Pony.

In other news, Mike Z recently announced that a Linux port for Skullgirls is currently in the making.

The Skullgirls team also said on Twitter that the beta release of the PC version should be out in June, followed by the final release in July.

Justin Wong updates community on his Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown challenge, discusses training and tournament experience

Justin Wong updates community on his Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown challenge, discusses training and tournament experience Evil Geniuses' Justin Wong has once again posted a new blog over on Sega's website detailing his progress with Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown. Justin was challenged by Sega to compete in the Sega Cup tournament in April and has been documenting his learning process.

Justin notes how he's been training as of late, his experience in the Virtua Fighter 5 tournament at Winter Brawl and more. Here's a small except from the article.

During my travels I’ve been entering VF5FS tournaments across the country and it has been a great learning experience. I played in the Winterbrawl tournament two weeks ago and lost to one of the best players in the country, Denkai. I couldn’t get anything started and he killed me, but his awesome use of fuzzy guarding was a good wake up call for what I need to learn to take my game to the next level. I played in Loser’s against a Brad player. I really didn’t know what to expect from Brad but at least I was able to keep it very close. I was very depressed but the VF players on the East Coast told me to keep it up and that they were impressed, which was pretty nice of them.

The week after I went to Wednesday Night Fights hosted by Superdojo and Level Up and entered the local tournament there for VF. I placed 3rd in that tournament and I was pretty happy that I wasn’t the worst player at the tourney. I think I got that far because I fought three Jackys in a row so I knew what to expect, but it was a great learning experience to see what other good players were doing with my character. I hope to enter more VF tournaments before the Sega Cup because I believe that the more experience I get, the better my chances are.
