Sony Santa Monica to All-Stars Fans – “We Are Absolutely Not Giving Up”

PlayStation Euphoria: Scheduled for this Fall, a new patch is set to fix what fans have complained about for a long time. However, the crew at Sony Santa Monica, made fans worry as a previous update that was supposed to be shared a few weeks ago with the community was postponed. While no news has been shared on what this patch covers yet, Tank has reassured fans of the game that they “are absolutely not giving up.” (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

Kind of late, but at least I got it for a good deal for Cyber Monday.

$20 for both PS3 and Vita versions. Still a fun game to play if you're tired of all the AAA games and want to play something a little different than Smash.

I love this game, I will play it again when patch drops! I hope for an allstars2 for ps4!!! New kill mechanics please.

"descent"

Never was there a more fitting typo.

I kinda want a MvC3 / Tatsunoko vs Capcom style PS All Stars fighting game.

You stole the words right out of my mouth. On one hand it seems positive spin but it is a bit wee too late.
sinncross  +   798d ago
I dunno...

new balance patch... add Knack, iota (Teraway),finish Dart and some other character, and give the game a PS4 release (plus lower PSN price for all 3 versions) and I think something could work out.

community might be small, but I am surprised how quickly I can get into games at times.

Good, because All-Stars is a really fun game with friends. People were just mad that it wasn't a Smash Bros. clone, or were mad that it 'was' a clone (those that never actually played it). It had its own style, and was really fun when you got into it. It's a shame people didn't give it much time to grown on them.

Here's hoping for an All-Stars 2, or at least some new characters as DLC.
PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt  +   798d ago
i never played the first one bc of no stage knockouts. but i hope they announce a number 2 with stage knockouts..

and I'm hoping for a Modnation Racers 2 real fun with friends

It doesn't need stage knockouts because its not Smash Bros. Does it need killstreaks and perks too?
Nicaragua  +   798d ago
If you want smash bros go buy smash bros. To have written off this game because its not identical to another game is completely dumb.

On a separate note i never played Modnation Racers because it didn't have pikmin.
Inception  +   798d ago
"People were just mad that it wasn't a Smash Bros. clone, or were mad that it 'was' a clone (those that never actually played it)."

It proves that devs can't satisfied both camp. Some people like it (or hate it) because it different from Smash Bros. But some people hate it (especially the Nintendo fanboys) because it tried to follow Smash Bros concept for cross over fighting games. When in fact, Smash Bros IS NOT the pioneer of cross-over fighting games.
Snookies12  +   798d ago
Yeah, it's unfortunate that they couldn't please everyone. It wasn't close enough to Smash Bros. to please those people, and it wasn't different enough to pull in people who didn't like Smash Bros. It was stuck in the middle, and it pushed people away unfortunately. :\

Regardless, I really enjoy the game. It's a lot of crazy fun, especially when you can get into 4x overtime with friends. So fun, and so stressful lol.
guitarded77  +   798d ago
I pre-ordered, and have had fun with it, but All-Stars NEEDS more game modes. It has a good roster, it has good (dynamic) maps, but it's missing the depth of a Smash Bros. Not saying to clone it, but it's pretty thin on game modes. My only complaint.
Veneno  +   796d ago
Good comment. They could have easily added a "King of the Hill" mode where the 4 players comepete to stand in a specific "territory" for the longest time to win a match. There's so many ideas like this that they could have come up with but didn't.
SpiralTear  +   797d ago
I personally was very impressed that Superbot didn't just make a clone of Smash Bros. and actually tried something different instead.

I wasn't a fan, however, of the unbalanced roster and constant overtimes, just because the fighting system was one bigger rubber-band effect.
trenso1  +   797d ago
i have to agree with you i played the game at events, and the sony store in the city and didn't like it cause it wasnt a smash bros clone. I would often lose track of my character and it felt unresponsive at times. I was playing a sly. I also didnt like there style of winning the game, (i didnt like super smash in brawl) and it was like there whole system of winning was based on a version of that. If they had ab HP mode i would have probably bought the game.

SkippyPaccino  +   798d ago
Now actually copy smash brother instead of reinventing the wheel and everyone will be happy...
Hicken  +   798d ago
No, everyone would NOT be. I enjoy SSB, but I don't want All Stars to be the same. I like that it was different, and I want it to stay that way.

If you want SSB, there's one coming for the Wii U sometime next year.
SkippyPaccino  +   798d ago
Well you might of liked it but... The sells weren't exactly positive... Everyone complaints were that it tried to be ssb but didn't quite do it...The more Sony exclusives the better... As long as the quality is there. :-)
Hicken  +   797d ago
Sales were decent. Not blockbuster, but then they were never expected to be so. And the quality was present, as well, though perhaps the game was a little low on content.

That aside, there were just as many people who complained that the game was TOO MUCH like SSB. People took both approaches to the game- too much like SSB, and not enough like SSB- and criticized it for both these things.

Therefore, while you may decrease the number of those who say it wasn't enough of an SSB clone, you'll increase the number of people who say it's too much of an SSB clone.

There was no desire or attempt to reinvent the wheel, as you say, but there WAS the intent to make the game unique. Making it more like the competition would take away from that. And I think most people would prefer that didn't happen.
Gabenbrah  +   798d ago
This time do it right by allowing stage knockouts
Mr_Writer85  +   798d ago
Stage knockouts are cheap and only those who can't play fighting games want them.
Gabenbrah  +   798d ago
But allowing 1 hit kill moves is more skilful... *Logic*
Mr_Writer85  +   798d ago
Where did I say that?

Please point it out as I can't see it and I sure don't remember writing it...

Thanks.
Gabenbrah  +   798d ago
In order to get a kill in All Stars, you need to build your meter to use a 1 hit auto kill move... Did you even play All Stars?
Mr_Writer85  +   798d ago
Yes I did

But I'm asking you where did I say 1 hit kills was more skillfull?

I didn't as you are making stuff up, because I never claimed it was more skillful you are just trying to deflect from the fact that I am right and stage knockouts are cheap.

wait so we are gonna see a PS4 version soon?
Platinum_k  +   798d ago
I hope its PS3 and PS4 versions.

I'm usually not the type of guy to like these childish looking games, but I found it to be really fun.

Brings back the Super Smash Brothers feeling =)
Snookies12  +   798d ago
How was it 'childish-looking' exactly? There are game aimed toward children with their art direction, but this certainly was not one of them.

definitely not aimed for the younger audience but it is fun to play nonetheless

hope fully the new patch doesn't take up 3/4 of your memory card as opposed to the 1/2 it already takes up.

"Childish looking"*

dont get your panties in the bunch
Soldierone  +   798d ago
Next time create a game with universal game modes. The new idea could have easily just been a mode, while having the standard SSB knockoff as another mode. That alone would have enhanced the game miles.
Veneno  +   796d ago
yes, this. the more modes the merrier.
Darkfist  +   798d ago
the least they can do is add more content, sony still has more 1st party character they didn't put, i already got sir dan and spike, now waiting for darth and and that gravity rush stage.
Veneno  +   796d ago
Sony should make a new rule: Any game's characters that are on PS4 must be available for use in the next Allstars game.
Soldierone  +   796d ago
Let alone NIS openly said they wouldn't mind Disgaea characters in the game, yet we never got any.... Would have been epic to use Mao in All-Stars.
RavageX  +   798d ago
I wanted to like it, but it just wasn't for me. That definitely doesn't mean it wasn't a good game though.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   798d ago
I agree with this.
I tried to like it, but I just couldn't do it.
At least it wasn't as bad as TMNT Smash-Up, though...

I love ps all stars, i hope we get some free characters or they make Zues and the other DLC characters free, i still play it offline with friends every weekend, i can never get in an online match tho for some reason..

If they can support this game, why don't they support Starhawk?
Veneno  +   796d ago
I think because fans choose Warhawk over Starhawk. I know I do.

i dnt see the big fuss i love playing this with friends i have a blast. like ppl are saying its not smash bros it has its own style and i like it.
TheLastGuardian  +   797d ago
This game was my shit. I must've put at least 200 hours into it. Bring on All-Stars 2!
spektical  +   797d ago
all stars was fun until it was lame that the only way to score kills was through power moves. Very disappointed. Became boring, skill wise it was too easy. R&C 1 power up was OP.

they really shouldve just copied a knockout game mode ala smash brothers. now that wouldve been awesome. All stars became a game where you can only win with certain characters.
lifeordeath617  +   797d ago
the game was fun until sackboy got nerf
