SuperBot Entertainment’s Omar Kendall comments on the ongoing comparisons between Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale and the Super Smash Bros. series.
If I was him I would went "Sure it's like Super Smash Bros...but the fans asked for that type of game with Sony characters, so where just giving them what they asked for" ...which is pretty much true, we have been asking for this type of game for years
Exactly. The only people who see this as a bad thing are people who's console of choice don't have enough exclusive characters to make a game like this.
I wonder what you mean? The PC definitely has loads of exclusives to make a PC Smash Bros. Diablo guys vs. League of Legends guys... oh wait, am I missing something?
@ Hammond Magika characters, tribes characters, arma characters, Starcraft characters, warcraft characters, amnesia characters, samurai generals from shogun or any total war, killing floor characters, red orchestra characters, shattered horizon, terreria, Blacklight retribution, Mech warrior, Hawken, Dota 2, lineage etc should I keep going? Pc has PLENTY of exclusive characters.
Huh?! what?! whO??....
@hammadtheOne and Hellraiser(I hate when people substitute numbers for letters) You guys are missing the point... the reason SSB and this game exists is because they are all published by one publisher, not because they are on the same system If you wanted a PC brawler the most realistic you could get would be valve only characters. Its not the system, its the publisher... unless they get permission from other companies which is unlikely on PC (Blizzard owned by Activision, etc)
@niblest Yeah, I hate it when people do that too..... *looks at own user name oh....-.-; nevermind...^__^; OT Another point to make is that PC isn't really(if you want to be technical) 1 platform, but a kajillion...^_^;
I hope this trend will compell Sega to revive their Fighter's Megamix from the Sega Saturn and bring new characters from Sonic series, Virtua Fighters, Yakuza, Phantasy Star, Jet Set Radio, Golden Axe, Shinobi series, Gunstar Guardian Heroes, Shen Mue, Platinum Games , Virtual On and of course Streets of Rage! With special guest of course " Its me Mario!"
There are some people that say they wish it was even more like Smash Bros. And others who say it's too much like Smash Bros.
Goddamnit, sarcasm doesn't get across the internet well. I was playing around saying that PC doesn't have exclusives, when we all know that the real culprit is the Xbox 360. Sorry if it didn't get across lol.
Like hell I did...
Completely agree with you People have been asking for this game ever since the Micheal trailer... I mean there is so much potential for an awesome roster I mean, there was no other way they could have made a game like this, with out making it look like Smash Bros. I really hope they let people try the game out before release... Im going to Fanexpo this year in Canada and there is always a huge sony booth... last year was awesome with Uncharted 3, hopefullt all-stars makes an appearance there. http://www.thegate.ca/wp-co... I have been a die hard fan of smash bros since the original, I I was so happy when this game was announced... sad other people do not share my enthusiasm
And Sony will be bashed and accused forever for ripping off Nintendo. This game is proof that PSBlog works and Jeff Rubenstein does his job as community director and mediator betweenSony and PlayStion gamers. Now that is commitment to gamers. To Michael!!!
Nimble assassin,I share your enthusiasm.I unashamedly hope its a direct rip off of Ssb as that game rocks and does the source material justice.
It's the same game pretty much except it's for Sony fans. SSB was great and I'm sure this will be just as good. But seriously how many fighting games are similar to other fighters out there. Most show very little differences between them.
It's just that cut and dry. I like the idea of having a living toy box on my VITA handheld. :-D
It's not like we see Smash Bros games every year anyways. It's okay to have a million of the same shooters every year but it's not okay if there's one similar game before it??? lol
Who cares?! Are Nintendo fanboys afraid this might actually be better than theirs or something? There is no rule that states other companies can't have their own fighting games.... We all asked for SONY SMASH BROS, we got it, and we are excited for it. Sorry that you Nintendo people can't just let other people be gamers..... Does no one remember the PS1/N64 days? When we had Mortal Kombat clones for literally everything.....
Thank you. Very good point. There were a million Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat 'clones' and NO ONE made such a big deal about it. We played every single one of them without blinking an eye. Now gamers cry on and on about who is copying who and what games is a copy of what.I played Word Heroes an obvious clone of STF and still had a blast playing it. Heck most 3D fighters are practically clones of Battle Arena Toshinden. But that's all we hear about from everyone and it makes it worse that SSB wasn't even an original concept but is rather in a genre of fighting game that existed before it was even conceived.Modern gamers harp on about the most stupid things.The Superbot people even confessed that they borrowed from SSB. What else do you want? Blood? @ frankiebeans. It only sucks because you don't have the cheap way of playing like you have in SBB. . Standing at the edge of stage and constantly pushing someone off wasn't a strategy. It was a cheap way to win. You could win SSB just by mashing buttons. People did it all the time. PASBR is not SSB.At least in PASBR you have to fight and get your own power to win instead of the people that just wait until someone does all the work in SSB then knock them away.
but if it's done right it isn't, modnation was a kart racer, but made some really cool new gameplay aspects that made it so that it wasn't just another copy if nobody borrowed off of each others ideas then we wouldn't be progressing very much like i said the trick is just not to copy a game and make a new setting or something like dante's inferno, seriously, that game didn't even try to hide it, you could use the same button combination, and expect dante to do a move that had the same effect as in god of war, but this game doesn't look like it's doing that, they've made it a priority to have something that makes this unique, if you listen to the interviews and stuff, the way you win a match is totally different from smash bros.
I love science and technology, and that is a discipline where scientists have always adhered to learning from and expanding upon the hypothesis and theories of scientists which came before them. Just thought what you said was true. Kudos! :-D
But if all we do is borrow/we borrow to much, than horizons and ingenuity will shrink. It is a balancing act. Progression and creative ingenuity are both needed. Continued advancement of what is and creation of what is not yet. It is also very late....=.=
its going to suck if you cant knock people off the level like smash bros. it gives you a reason to survive and have some type of strategy and makes you want to stay on the level and its a constant struggle of trying to stay alive its a big part of the smash bros games and as much as i want a playstation version its going to be really crappy without it having the only way to die is being hit by a special.
They NEED to put Dovakiin in this! That would be SICK
Besides, companies don't give a crap if anyone thinks you 'copied' anything. If someone has a good idea they use it and if anything improve on or make it with your own by adding differentiators. The cry of 'you copied me' is nothing more then the ignorant cry of fanboys and stupid consumers. You think when the first car put air bags in the car anyone else who did it cared if they did it too. Or when Sony added two joysticks to their controller anyone who did it afterwards cared if they were 'copying' Sony? All the 3D fighters back then where carbon copies of Battle Arena Toshinden. Nintendo took the very AR Card concept that Sony pioneered and used it. Why? Because it was a good idea and they decided to use it.They did nothing different. But notice no cry from Nintendo fanboys about copying.Companies take ideas from others if they are good ones and use them and don't give a $hit what the ignorant masses say.
I want someone to make a video showing every characters attacks. Like Up+Square Down+Triangle for everyone.
All I really want is a Life Bar of some sort
I think they should port the characters movesets into the game, such as to puch as Jak And Daxter it's square and to spin it's O and to jump it's X But if you hold L1 and press square you do the spin air punch. Also you level up Jak And Daxter from The Precursor Legacy Jak to the Jak II Jak, eh? Also to address the whole SSB ripoff thing why not just call it a collaberation why doesn't Sony ask Nintendo if they're OK with it? I think it would be great if those two teamed up! :D
