I personally don't care. All I hope is that PASBR is a good game and Superbot sounds like they are going all out with this game with all types of moves, modes and stages. It definitely is not just cheap knock off as people are trying to make it as. I wish we could have brought the attitudes of gamers back then in the golden age.

I mean I don't mind if you have your doubts about it but some of the things being said against it are ridiculous. Some was saying Parappa and Fat Princess don't seem like fighter as opposed to SSB characters. But Mr Game and Watch, Princess Peach, Jigglypuff, Pokemon Trainer and Ness do? Come on.
