11w ago - Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow unveiled a new Skullgirls update today which includes a free character and stage with details below.
To quote: Last week, Lab Zero Games, the new developer of Skullgirls, started an Indiegogo campaign to keep the game growing with the addition of new characters.
The results have simply blown us away -- our amazing fans raised $150,000 to fund Squigly, our first DLC character, in under 24 hours. And now, a week later, we've more than doubled that and are well on our way to funding a second character.
So sometime this summer, all owners of Skullgirls will be able to download Squigly free! Not only will you get this awesome, parasite-infested opera singer to play with, you'll also get her story mode and a new stage.
In addition to Squigly's stage, we'll also be developing a new stage, the River King Casino, that will be also be released free. Check out this early concept sketch:
I did say it was early. But in the coming weeks, you'll see that rough sketch turn into a beautiful, hand-painted 3D stage.
In addition to an all-new track by Castlevania: Symphony of the Night composer, Michiru Yamane, this stage will feature our "Patron Saint" contributors'...
However, you also had more questions, and we have the answers! Character customisation options, voice chat, Mechromancer, a unique reward for Borderlands 1 players - I've done my best to answer as many of your questions about Borderlands 2 as possible. Read on...
Can we expect better more consistent framerate this time around?...

148w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has revealed to PS3 and PSP fans today the itinerary and details of the Comic-Con 2010 agenda, which takes place this week from July 22nd through July 25th in San Diego, California.
To quote: "So, where exactly are the comics at Comic-Con?" That's what I wondered when I attended my first San Diego Comic-Con a few years back.
Comic-Con may have been all about pulp and capes once upon a time, but these days it's more of a celebration of geek/pop culture: sci-fi TV shows, action movies, and, of course, video games.
So for those of you attending this mega conference (about 125,000 last year), I've put together a primer of the PlayStation presence at the San Diego Convention Center (and beyond).
The PlayStation Booth
We're booth #4237, right next to our friends at SOE, and a stone's throw from Capcom and WB. Play E3 favorites like LittleBigPlanet 2, Killzone 3, Gran Turismo 5 (in glorious 3D), The Sly Collection, God of War: Ghost of Sparta, a host of PlayStation Move titles, and more. Plus, we've always got cool giveaways and schwag!
