Siliconera: Hands-On With Dante And Raiden In Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale

Kris of Siliconera - At PAX, I got a chance to play a few rounds of Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. Having just played Metal Gear Rising and DmC: Devil May Cry, I decided to give new Dante and Black Raiden a whirl. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

Wow I didn't see the Ape Escape level at PAX. That looks crazy awesome.

Damn, I'm not a fan of the confusion this guy felt. I understand what he means by the buttons not seeming to have any real meaning, or universal set-up, but maybe that's also good since none of the characters will really feel the same.

(which I could see being a problem for characters like Kratos and Nariko if they were in other fighting games with universal controls)

I don't know, I guess I'll find out when I play the full game.

I LOVE the idea of no universal controls. All the more reason to get really good with one specific character. That's a really good thing in my mind because it will add much more variation to online and local matches. For example:

I get really good with Raiden, my friend gets really good with Evil Cole. We would both want those two characters to be OUR specialized characters. If I decided to just start using Cole, I should have to learn a new control scheme.

Have you ever played a fighting game where you have a favorite character, and your friend decides to randomly use YOUR favorite character, then kicks your ass with YOUR character? It's annoying as hell and makes you wanna smack your friend in the face lol.

I have to admit Dante looks lethal in this game.

Dante looks like he has too much in the game. He;s gonna be a problem. Almost looks unfair to fight against him.
