Microsoft Could Totally Pull Off Its Own Super Smash Bros. Clone

Kotaku - I was reading online about the Playstation All-Stars game and in the comments people were ripping on Microsoft and say that they couldn't even make a game like that since they have no exclusives or decent IP's. I did some thinking, I think Microsoft could pull it off and have it be totally awesome.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sure and Bethesda can make "Rogue Warrior" an FPS game, Just because you "could possibly" pull it off does not mean it should be done.

in my opinion shooting characters don't mix well in brawlers like smash brothers
a good example is snake he just didn't seem to mix well with all the other fighters

Bethesda didn't make Rouge Warrior, they just published it. The game was developed by Zombie Studios/Rebellion (both pretty mediocre ones).
Try harder next time

Well, everyone is in agreement about one thing: that Xbox games are mostly shooters. So why not just make a battle royale game that is a shooter? Third person, cover based but yet fast paced to keep the action moving. Give it 4 player slpit screen and you''re good.

Actually, this sounds like a good idea and fun for a local multiplayer face-off. I remember playing the 1vs1 Syphon Filter with friends and it was a great time. Not that different from playing a sports game with your friends, just much faster and filled with trash talking.

But I don't think that's what most shooter enthusiasts want today. A face-off demands a relatively low player count for a shooter and it probably wouldn't be purelly based on aim, like there's no point in headshooting if it only decreases an X ammount of your health bar and you use a special power/movement to insta kill me right after... That ends being kind of chea for a shooter.

I guess if you could scale that up to more player, with respawn and near crazy action, it could sell a lot, but kind of defeat the purpose of being an alternative to a brawler.

MS could do it, but it wouldn't sell on their console. This style of game is more kid oriented, and historically even good kids games tend to get ignored on the 360. I couldn't see a game like this moving more than 200k, 300k on the 360 - tops.

*Tentonsoftube* you are such a Sony fanboy. Why do you even bother posting if all you do is downplay everything that is not SONY.

Yea but the only people i could see being in it really is Master Chief, Commander Shepard even though Mass Effect gone multiplatform, and Marcus Fenix. You could probably also include the people from L4D.

OneAboveAll1950d ago

Alan Wake and the chick from Kameo! And let's not forget Pinatas!

bahabeast1950d ago

well microsoft own one of most loved fighting franchises of all time soo all they have to do is make a xbox exclusive killer instinct and im sure they will sell a few extra 360's just because.

sloth33951950d ago

I cant believe they own Bloodforge. That game is getting some real bad reviews

SilentNegotiator1950d ago

Kinect fun labs, XNA, flight simulator.....why didn't you just cut some of these and make a list of their IPs that would actually contribute to a sort of collaboration?

Denethor_II1950d ago

Yeah... I don't think MS would try and release there own fighter in the mix with all the superb, established, fighters already out on sale. Not to mention MS relies on Mult- plat games to move it's consoles to the core audience, with the exception of 1 or 2 games.
But who knows with E3 coming round maybe they have some huge exclusive coming?

slaton241950d ago

fable side characters..blinx...blue dragon..banjo and kazooie...super meat boy...wow thats all i can think of....lol

Patriots_Pride1950d ago (Edited 1950d ago )

Dam your right MS need to step up and bring it next gen if they want to survive - I can not really think of any myself and I dont think they own Super Meat Boy.

"why didn't you just cut some of these and make a list of their IPs that would actually contribute to a sort of collaboration?"

I mean, who are you gonna have from Zoon Tycoon in this sort of game? Or Lips?

Don't be so quick to jump the gun and assume stuff. Try thinking every now and then.

slaton241950d ago
