Games still have their enthusiasts

Fighting-game fans are out of their minds — but kind of in a good way. They proved that today by throwing more than $150,000 at developer Lab Zero Games in less than 24 hours so that the studio can fund downloadable content for its brawler Skullgirls.
Yesterday, Lab Zero started a funding campaign on crowdfunding site Indiegogo and asked for $150,000 to pay for the development of a new downloadable fighter, Squigly. Its fans have smashed that first goal. The project has 30 days left to continue taking pledges from contributors.
