James Chen (jchensor) and David Philip Graham (UltraDavid), two of the fighting game community’s best commentators, have a segment in their YouTube channel for fighting game beginners called First Attack. Their latest series of episodes bring in Mike Zaimont as a guest. Why is this important? Well, Mike Z is the lead programmer of Skullgirls – he’s the authority when it comes to the game’s mechanics and quirks – not the best person to learn from, but certainly the leading source.
So if you want to bring your Skullgirls battle power to over 9000, watch these vids and pay attention (it’s gonna be hard since it gets very technical):
