Report: IGN cancels IPL6 eSports tournament

Report: IGN cancels IPL6 eSports tournament GameSpot has received several reports that IGN is planning on canceling their upcoming IPL6 eSports tournament. While no Capcom fighting games were headlining this event, this could potentially be bad news for the fighting game community's future with IPL.

IGN was recently purchased by ZiffDavis, but they mentioned in a memo they were looking for a new buyer for IPL.

While no official statements have been made that IPL6 is canceled, a number of things are strongly pointing in that direction, including:

• Sponsors of the IGN ProLeague event have told GameSpot the products they sent over for sponsorship are being returned to them.

• The IPL website removed links on the front page to reserve hotel rooms for the March 28-31, 2013 weekend.

• Korean-based league OnGameNet said that the IPL6 League of Legends Korean qualifiers have been cancelled due to change in management policies and financial difficulties.

eSports teams, players and fans from around the globe have reserved plane tickets and hotels for this event, some of which cannot be refunded, depending on the way such things were purchased.

This information doesn't offer a decisive stance on the future of IPL and their involvement with the fighting game community, but this news doesn't bode well.

Big Band confirmed for Skullgirls DLC character after Squigly, first male character

Last night one the Salty Cupcakes stream, some new Skullgirls DLC information was released, including who their first male character will be.

Big Band, has been confirmed as future DLC after the release of Squigly. Details on Big Band, general crowd fund, goals and reward tiers, PC version and more are available over on the SkullHeart forums.

Big Band:

• Big Band, the gigantic iron lung wearing character from the Lab 8 stage is confirmed as the first Male Character stretch goal after Squigly.

• He will be a charge character with anti-air and command grabs.

• It was previously mentioned that MikeZ wanted to make Big Band play like Q from Street Fighter 3 Third Strike, "but good".

• He will be called サックスでか (Sax-Deka) in Japan. Deka is both a slang term for someone who is extremely tall and also for a police officer/detective. So his name is basically "Sax Detective". Peter Bartholow mentioned previously that this name was what Japanese fans started calling him before the game was released there and is thus a nod to them, and a nod to characters in fighting games having different names in different regions.

• If you select Big Band in a fight he won't appear in the backdrop for Lab 8.

· Winding down 1UP.com, UGO.com and GameSpy.com;
· No longer ad repping 3rd party sites such as GameStop.com and FamilyGuy.com;
