The Best and Worst of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale So Far

Kotaku - The closed beta for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale was released earlier this week. While it's in no way a complete product (it's a beta, after all) there were some things about it I loved and hated. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3)

Why does he keep comparing it to ssbb? He should be reviewing the game as itself, instead of a comparison.

Kotaku will do anything to be negative against anything Sony does.Many fighting games didn't have you falling off sides. That is not necessary to anything. Powerstone had no edges to fall off of and it worked just fine. And what does he mean it 'weakens' the stage and it shows how few franchises Sony has? That makes no sense. What is wrong with Hotshots Golf combined with Jak's stage or LBP with Buzz?

Power Stone had fall offs. Actually, PSA may have one too-- the leaked Uncharted level will result in a fall off. In Power Stone, it doesn't give you death, just reduces your health. In PSA's case, it takes a chunk of your AP.

I've got a gripe with guys criticizing this game for not having SSB features when this game isn't trying to emulate SSB

1) You have no time to look at the scores for the timed mode. It's 2 minutes. Keep a mental note as to who has the high score and go after him/her.

2) This game is about supers, deaths by falling into pits isn't a part of this mechanic and would negate the point of this game.

Criticizing the game for not being SSB is like taking an FPS and criticizing it for not being COD. You need to adapt to what the game is, and then look at the game from there. Sure, some may prefer SSB in comparison, but really are better things he could have criticized. Maybe it's because I didn't grow up on it, but it seems there are some hard habits that need to be broken when it comes to expecting this game to play exactly like Smash

Completely agree. He had his mind made up before ever touching the beta. Anyone who's still holding SSB against PSASBR, is either ignorant or ran out of something original to say. He's off for the most part. Also, in the article it's stated that the beta started earlier this week but in fact began over two weeks ago.

Ah, Kotaku...

I'll say it, that site has just garbage standards. They'll praise Sony when they see everyone else is, but always look for underpinnings to try and negate. When they're not trying to convince people that a cancelled game rumor is fact, they're nitpicking at things that are of no relevance. They may make good points and post interesting articles at times, but I just can't trust anything they say anymore.

Well said -Alpha. I have problems with their general journalistic integrity tbh.
