So for anyone that has an Xbox 360o or PS3 I highly recommend an indie game that was release on XBL / PSN last week called Skullgirls. Screenshots and online video don't do it justice- download the free demo and check out what this game has to offer. If you're new to fighting games there is an EXCELLENT tutorial that points out what every other game leaves up for the player to find on their own.

The best thing about this game is how well it plays- there are only 8 characters but each one has such a range of options (though vast they are easy to control).The cast of 8 has more depth and variety than any of the 40+ characters in other games (Marvel Capcom 3, Street Fighter X Tekken) And though it's designed as a 3 character team-based game like the Marvel Vs Capcom series you have the freedom to play as only 1 single stronger character vs a team of weaker 3 characters, or even a balanced 2 man team.

Skullgirls is great for beginners because you can just start off by choosing to play as a solo character and learn each character until you're comfortable to expand to a team of 2 or 3. Also with the smaller cast of 8 it makes it MUCH EASIER to LEARN what the opponent is trying to do with their character and learn how to defend against them and recognize their weaknesses.

While screenshots of the game have turned people off with its art style it can be said that the animation in this game is some of the best ever seen in gaming. The speed of the game may make some details easy to miss at first glance, but the crazy Disney-level animation holds tons of detail and goodies to find even after playing the game for a while. It seems like there's always something new to find.

Anyone whose ever been slightly interested in the fighting genre deserves to take a look at this game. Even to those who have totally dismissed the genre I recommend downloading the demo. The story and characters are interesting enough for it to have been any kind of game, but what they have done is created an original intellectual property that will last for a very long time. Skullgirls. And it's only $15
