Several new details have been revealed regarding the new “full-on beta build” of the upcoming multiplatform fighting game, Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale.
The problem with PSASB is how sony is marketing it like Super Smash Bros, which wouldn't be a problem if Sony had more different genres/styles of games this gen. The Wii had games set in unrealistic, fantasy worlds that although some could regard as "kiddish", were still good and overall help SSBB, because unlike the PS3, Wii had some games that weren't trying to hard to be realistic (because of the inferior graphics), so it fit better. Because PS3 lacked that this gen, it doesn't feel right knowing that they're trying to create a game like this since their exclusive titles often either A)where in the same genre, or B)had the exact same realistic (which is okay) but sometimes repetitive, boring, stale feel to them.
What in the world are you spewing?
Vile jealous hatred
what are you talking about when you say they lack variety, so i guess LBP, infamous, GoW, uncharted, journey, ratchet, killzone, sly, the last of us, heavy rain, and all stars all look and play alike, gotcha
This game will be crushed by reviews and non PS3 owners, it wasn't a good idea to make it 2.5D, should have been 3D like PowerStome and no one would have any complain because PowerStone is dead IP (Capcom doesn't care), so the only comparition would have been Mascot Brawler and not Mascot Brawler copycat/ripoff of Smash Bros.
LBP and GoW are the only truly different games from this gen, Ratchet & Clank is mainly PS2, and Journey is more or less a PSN game.
the crap you are saying is ridiculous..... so let me get this right....heavy rain plays like Killzone???? nintendo barely has variety in its genres, Rpg and Platformer and a shooter, thats it, unless ur counting Super mario bad mitten. the game is about having your favorite characters fight each other. using a character like Cole vs Sackboy was originally unheard of, but now its not. what other game can you get Dante Vs Kratos, or Nariko Vs Raiden?
lack of vareity this gen what? What Major Franchise has nintendo got this gen apart from Zelda and Mario and the occasional Donkey Kong game huh?
EVERYONE, HOW do edit my comment, I didn't really type it well to be honest. I didn't mean to say heavy rain plays like killzone or anything, but rather, they all have that same, dark realistic feel sort of.
they only give u 15 minutes to hit edit, or the button dissapears. and dark and realistic? sooo Little big planet and uncharted are dark? Heavenly sword wasn't really dark. i sorta think you mean Most of Sony's IP's are geared towards gamers 13+ instead of E for everyone like nintendo. where nintendo doesnt have even one Dark and realistic character, sony has few Kiddy and cartoony characters, all i can think of for kiddy is LBP, Mod nation, fat princess, Ratchet, Jak and Daxter.....man there is enough listed there already lol. sony has both young and old audiances which is what makes sony so awesome. and the best thing PS allstars has over smash. all the characters play uniquely. instead of smash which has a bunch of clones with different skins. even in PSAS evil cole and normal cole have different animations and attacks
I guess this is one of the wonders of smoking weed
I played the closed beta a couple of times, it was really interesting and varied in the characters and if i remember correctly there were ony 5 or 6, i always used sweet tooth or fat princess, lol baby got BACK!
This would've been good if they didn't have to scrape the bottom of the barrel for characters and then use the game just to advertise games for 3rd party characters. It's still missing a ton of staple characters like Crash, Lara, Spyro, Cloud, Solid Snake, Kazuma, Raziel, & more.
Scraping the bottom of the barrel? The majority of characters announced so far are 1st/2nd party Sony owned characters. The only 3rd party characters out of 20 announced are Big Daddy, Dante, Raiden and Heihachi. FOUR... out of TWENTY. Now of course there will be more announced, but people like yourself are complaining about things that are unannounced. Kazuma will be in there, I'm pretty sure about that. Snake I'm sure too. Crash and Spyro I can see being a problem because of Activision and licensing, but I think they will make their way into the game in some way. Maybe Cloud will be announced at TGS, since Superbot have been announcing new characters/stages at all major gaming events. Lara is 3rd party and would be used to advertise the new Tomb Raider game, but Crystal Dynamics have said no to Lara being in the game. Having her in there would be okay for you, even though it would be advertising third party?
Kazuma? Raziel? Talk about scrapping the bottom... O_o
I am sorry how are they scraping the bottom of the barrel by using characters that are well known and belong to them? Drake, Ratchet, Jak, Parappa, Cole etc. are scraping the bottom of the barrel? And how are they third party characters. Most of the characters in PASBR are either first or second party so how is the game just being use to advertise for third party character if most of them belong to Sony? Do you read what you write after you write it or are you just high or something?
Wow @ some of these comments...
Yeah, I think some people are actually losing their s*** here.
I played this a few weeks ago and MY GOD is this game fun! I owned everyone as kratos, felt like a badass ;)
I cannot wait to play this game! CRASH needs to be in it
'the final versions will have way more levels than they expected.' Sounds promising
It already looked so awesome the way it was and now I am hearing it is even better then what we have been seeing and playing? Me likey.
Parappa is hated everywhere lol. The game is so far so good can't wait for Sept 20 for more characters revealed.What u want to have go play Master Chief vs Marcus Fenix also known as Xbox Mega Fighters!
Just got my beta key, hell yeah!
me too!!!! XD
