First in-game footage of Skullgirl's Big Band in action - shows off his 3rd Strike-esque parry

First in-game footage of Skullgirl's Big Band in action - shows off his 3rd Strike-esque parry During Anime Expo 2013 this past weekend, the Salty Cupcakes stream held a Skullgirls broadcast. Included in this live feed was the first in-game look at the 2nd DLC character in the works, Big Band.

Mike Z notes that Big Band is clearly one of the largest characters in the game and is actually as tall as Double (sans the saxophone on his back.) Although he isn't equipped with any attacks at this point, we do get to see Big Band's parry as he thwarts Valentine's attempt at hitting him with a super.

The quick Big Band demonstration begins at around 1:35:00 in the stream archive.

Smash Bros. has over 550 sign ups for EVO - game-by-game breakdown of CEO's registrants

Smash Bros. has over 550 sign ups for EVO - game-by-game breakdown of CEO's registrants Mr. Wizard mentioned today that Super Smash Bros. Melee, a game that was added to EVO 2013's lineup by the fans, currently has over 550 players registered to compete.

This is a huge number of players, especially for a game that wasn't even originally going to be in the lineup, but was added because fans raised almost $100,000 for breast cancer research.

To give these numbers a bit of context, we're comparing them with CEO 2013's current lineup, which is going down this weekend in Orlando, Florida. CEO is sure to be one of the biggest tournaments of the year, and their registration just closed, but they'll be accepting emergency registrants at the door. As such, these numbers aren't final, but do offer a solid look at how things should end up.
