Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale βeta 1st Impressions | STFUandPlay

"Going into this game I wanted to have an extremely open mind, and not think of that other game. You know that other game everyone keeps saying this game is a rip off of, Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion XL. Anyway, so this beta just came out and they have six characters to choose from. Kratos, Parappa, Fat Princess, Sweet Tooth, Radec and Sly Cooper. I tried out all six of them and will tell you my thoughts on each of them" (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3)

Where'd you get w betw key from!?
homer  +   1215d ago
They emailed it to me. I don't remember ever signing up for anything to get it, but they sent me one anyways.

Pretty sure you have to have ps+ to be eligible.
mafiahajeri  +   1215d ago
lucky :p
Reggonoy  +   1215d ago
You're wrong cpayne93. You do not need to be a PS+ member. I just got my beta invite on Thursday and I have never subscribed to PS+.

From what I'm hearing is that the only thing similar to this and smash bros is the presentation. The gameplay appears entirely different. Looks like a great game. I can't wait for this and the next smash bros

how do get the beta key please tel me?

Sounds like it played well, but needs some touch ups.

I've been thinking about it and I kind of wish they hadn't used SSB as a sort of template but rather Power Stone. Not enough games like Power Stone and Allstars probably wouldn't have received such outrage for modelling off of it.

Despite Power Stone being a good game it's camera angles were not exactly user friendly. It made it hard to know if you had the person in your sites or if you were even in line with the person you were trying to hit. Also things like Sweet Tooth's Robot form wouldn't fit very well in the arena

Doesn't Sony make you agree to an NDA if you download the beta? Looks like someone broke an agreement...lol
Rikuson1  +   1215d ago
I don't even think they take such things that seriously people are all over the internet posting articles and youtube videos about it anyway.
DarthJay  +   1215d ago
So then what is the purpose of the article? It's an article where nothing new is learned and it is apparently not even based on the beta, but "other footage."

It's fairly simple: either your headline is misleading or you broke the NDA. Can't have your cake and eat it too.

I'm not going to leave it alone, because I'd love to post video and get tons of hits on it, but I'm not because those were the rules.
DarthJay  +   1215d ago
Yeah, I am 100% sure there was a Non Disclosure Agreement. It is the EXACT reason I didn't post any video.
Rikuson1  +   1215d ago
true but in this article there is nothing you learn new that you already didn't know about if you know anything about the game. No such spoilers what so ever just 1st impressions, and if punished for it than so be it and leave it alone.

Loads of people are attacking this game and they are claiming that it's terrible because it borrows some mechanics from Smash Brothers but from what I've seen it doesn't appear to be a bad game. The same goes with little big planet Karting.

DigitalRaptor  +   1215d ago
Of course they're not bad games. People just love to b**** and moan.

It's been accounted by many people who have played Battle Royale that the gameplay, goals and strategy is completely different to Smash Bros and that it's fun as hell. The only real similarities are in its presentation and that it's a console mascot brawler.

I've played the LBP Karting beta and it's so much fun. People can call it a Nintendo rip of all they want, but it's been many years and iterations since Mario Kart has done much different or innovated. The Play, Create, Share element breathes new life into the genre and can only imagine what the community comes up with, based on previous LBP creativity.

I'm sure others have already confirmed it, but I'll post it again.

You do NOT need to be a PS+ subscriber to get invited into this closed beta.

I received a beta invite for PS All-Stars Battle Royale AND I received a beta invite for Little Big Planet: Karting. I have never subscribed to PS+ and I'm not active on the PlayStation forums. I'm not sure what the criteria are to be selected, it might be random or it might be based on PSN usage.
