Skullgirls - worth it if you're not a pervert?

I want a good 2D fighter, but this kinda looks like it was made for the hentai crowd...

It felt like a combination of King of Fighters and Marvel vs Capcom.

Best fighter since Guilty Gear if you ask me, I hate Hentai, look past the graphics, its a pretty amazing game.

How is it hentai? Sure, the girls are supposed to be teenagers and some of the outfits are a bit skimpy, but it's hardly perverted, unless you associated anything with Japanese anime/that style with hentai, in which case nothing I can say will change your mind. I haven't played the game, but it looks like fun.

Because a fighting game with anime female characters =/= Perverted and hentai

*Pure generalization

You expected a teddy bear in the adult section?

You could say that about everything, rule34 after all.

It has really tournament friendly button setup. Honestly, that's pretty big. Game is fairly easy to pick up. Thing is, the community is pretty bad (https://twitter.com/Skullgirls_irc/) and you usually don't get many people in locals or tourneys, so it's not really taken seriously. Game itself is worth the price, though. It's not really good or anything, but it's not a bad fighter.

The combos are too long, ruins the game IMO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flqmFsqPv4w#t=04m45s

Looks flashy, but it turns the versus mode into a single-player rhythm game after the first hit confirm. Not my thing, but if you liked MvC you'll find a lot to like in Skullgirls.
