Great news. Sucks Sony let them go but I guess Sony had to with poor sales.

showtimefolks1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

i think the game series will continue, and i wouldn't be surprised if this game sells atleast 1-2 million which is pretty good for a new IP. I am talking about lifetime sales

i am glad all comments till now are positive before Nintendo fanboys get here only to say SSB rip off only to not take credit away from Nintendo because they weren't the 1st ones to do Brawler type of games

anyone who has played all star battle royal(which i still believe is a bad name lol)know that its a very very good fighting game. I am hopeful sony santa monica will find another developer or do in house development for a sequel on PS4

the 1st one did a lot right but there is huge room for improvements


lol hopefully me bringing it up means others will leave the topic alone. what i don't get is one game is exclusive to sony or to nintendo so why can't we have 2 great games in a genre? why is it no one should ever copy or get inspiration from it and maybe improve on the idea or bring some fresh takes

Ripsta7th1774d ago

And yet you brought it up lmao

Skips1774d ago

PS All Stars Battle Royale 2 could be a brawler with the God Of War MP mechanics. 3D environments with lots of interactivity in the stage! That would be epic IMO.

Do it SSM!

"The other nominees were Persona 4 Arena, Soul Calibur V, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Street Fighter X Tekken"

And this game won, yea this is BS and you people know it.
This game won't even hold viewers during EVO.
Best fighter my ass.

Says who? You? Have you even played the game? Or you are just one of those typical "this is a Smash Bros clone and it sucks!" Kinda guy? I think you are so shut up!

I'm absolutely loving All Stars (I've got the PS3 and PS Vita cross play versions).

I have to be honest, my first hour with the game was: "OMG this is a button masher!" OMG I can't tell what's going on!" "OMG why is their life not going down?".

But once the game mechanics 'clicked' I realised I had approached the game from the totally wrong perspective. When I realised the game mechanics (not the mechanics I assumed on the game), I discovered an immensely fun and tactical fighting game.

Definately misunderstood, but brilliant.

Sure it's only winning cause it's the only fighting game out there lol. Sometimes copying Nintendo should be the last thing on P$ console.

chrispseuphoria1774d ago

Have you actually played the game, 007Bond? It isn't copying Nintendo.

badz1491774d ago

Did you see the list of games it has beaten for the award or you're just talking out of your back? The only game? Pfft...haters will always hate I guess!

HeroLv91774d ago

congrats Superbot! I enjoyed playing your game and hopefully you will be able to make another one!

Veneno1774d ago

The industry knows a brilliant fighting game when they see it. Gamers, not so much.

chrispseuphoria1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

I totally agree! If people actually played it rather than assuming it's just a Smash Bros clone, they would understand how great it really is.

Kevlar0091774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

I only played it once, but other than having a bunch of 1st party and special guest characters, and the fact it's part platforming you can't really compare them. I found SSB to be a little simpler and easier to understand from the get-go, picking up Smash you have better clues as to how you are doing and has easier to use controls, while in All-stars I couldn't quite figure how to win from picking it up

Obviously if I played it more I would understand All-Stars better. I feel like the Smash concept back on the 64 was more novel when it was created and has has more games to build upon (the idea of getting Mario, Link, Pikachu to fight each other was pretty big back in the day). One thing All-stars could use is a competitive scene, or at the very least time to grow.

andibandit1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

People should've just admitted that it was a SSB clone and then said they found it better than SSB, but instead die hard sony fans would point out ridicouless differences, in order to claim originality. So now all we talk about is whether it's a clone or not and not about if the game is good or not.

Wintersun6161774d ago

So true. I had my doubts about this game based on the discussions I had read here. But then I decided to go for it when it was on sale at PSN for 22€ a couple of weeks ago. And I'm glad I did.

The game has its pros and cons and while the cons such as lack of different game modes and widely wanted certain characters seem quite big, they never stopped me from enjoying this game.

I've had a good time with it and I'm just hoping for a sequel with a bigger roster, more game modes such as a health bar mode, more big name characters like Crash and Cloud.

garos821774d ago

well said bubble and agree however let that be a lesson to you NOT to form opinions on discussions bashing a game especially when said game hasnt sold much.

it goes to show how ignorant people base opinions on what the masses say and you can essentially miss out on some great games in the process.

bought the game day one and it certainly is great value for money in terms of how many hours ive sunk into it.Further hours shall be sunk in with the free dlc coming in 6 days!

axerated1774d ago

I know bro, so many people jump on the crapwagon for this game but if you ask anyone who actually owns it and plays it regularly they love it. Personally it's the best game I've played on my vita so far next to wipeout, great for gaming on the go and addictive as hell

kenshiro1001774d ago

SSB isn't original either. Your point?

No one claimed it was original, but there are differences when you compare the two games. Maybe if people stopped screaming 'ripoff' and played the game for what it is, it would have been received better.

ShugaCane1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

The game is fun but I think they should have made a proper fighting game, instead of a SSB-like. Just imagine Kratos Vs Nathan Drake with Soul Calibur graphics or gameplay, that would be epic.

Veneno1774d ago

That would have been awesome as well. Or like a marvel vs capcom like system where you play as 3 characters and come up with all sorts of sweet combinations.

But what they made is unique and stands out, amd it worked out to be come a great game. Im satisfied.

Kevlar0091774d ago

Then you realize there are a bunch of 1v1 stage fighters out there. I love the fighting system in Smash, it's really in a league of its own and a unique experience. Obviously Superbot tried to match that spirit, though the Sony fanbase might not be that kind of crowd. The future should be interesting, I see nothing wrong with imitation, Smash will always be special to me and other Nintendo players

dgonza401774d ago

I completely disagree. The art style of the different more cartoon characters would have clashed drastically with the graphics you're describing.

coppermek1774d ago

The problem is that PSAS wasn't a fighter, it was a brawler. Very similar genre, but it's like comparing Gears of War to Halo. Yes, you shoot things in both of them, but they're still 2 different games that are actually a part of different sub-genres.

Was it the best brawler that came out last year? Yes. Was a game with the word Tekken in it the best fighter to come out last year? Regrettably, yes.

SAE1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

No one can beat tekken. I would be glad to proven wrong :D. Gonna try dead or alive on vita then i will decide if i will buy it or not. Hope it's good ^^
