To be honest, if they ever do continue this series, they should do so after the Smash Bros hype has died down.

Me: "Let me check the Playstation All Stars 2 rumor comment section. It's been sometime. I'm sure it will mention some cool mechanics or how much fun the original series :D"

~ reads first comments. All comments (except mine) allude to smash bros.

The game doesn't seem appealing to me.

I like the premise and potential it has, but when I look at the visual side of the game, it's just a mess. I think the characters are much too 'true to their original form' that they conflict with eachother. They don't belong in the same universe, so to speak.

Sony should take a look at that Disney Infinite game, and use that as an example about how to take very different characters from very different 'worlds', and coming up with a design/style where they all DO somehow seem to fit together. Suddenly, Captain Jack Sparrow DOES look like he belongs next to Mr. Incredible.

So Sony needs to go back into this game and come up with a visual style where all these characters will no longer 'conflict'.

.... and some less boring backgrounds would help a lot too.

Damn shame we prolly won't though, this games insanely fun. I still play to this day weekly tourny I'm my areas and casually. Def after smash hype dies down in about a year or two. Would be super nice if a bit more care and time went into this game.

ABizzel1664d ago

I don't think a Smash style game is best for PlayStation. Although I enjoyed it, I think a better game would be an ARPG in the style of Kingdom Hearts featuring characters from the PlayStation cast and 3rd parties.

A smash type game mode would be a great side part of that game, but a huge ARPG would be much better.

DualWielding664d ago

I think the opposite, it should have come right alongside smash so it'll get free publicity from hundreds of internet articles comparing the two, and get extra sell from hundreds of fanboys wanting it to outsell smash

ValKilmer665d ago

Personally, I'd like to see an Xbox All-Stars.

Eidolon665d ago (Edited 665d ago )

I can't think of a good list of characters for that roster.

frogman270665d ago

Master Chief, Marcus Fenix, Conker, Banjo Kazooie,
Splosion Man, Castle Crashers Character(s), Frank West, Kaim, Jade, Raz (Psychonauts), Agent(Crackdown), Shu, Joanna Dark, and throw in an avatar. Im pretty sure they have enough characters to make an Xbox All-Stars

@frogman270

Even though Microsoft bought Rare, I'll always associate Perfect Dark and Banjo Kazooie with N64 since that was their original console.

Other options off the top of my head:
Kameo, The arbiter (halo), someone from the Fable series, Jason Fleming (from Shadow Complex), someone from left for dead (maybe a zombie type), Somone/something from Prey, Super Meat Boy,

Eidolon664d ago

That's a good list and all, but I think most of those are non-exclusive and single-hit..While as with Smash Bro's and PS All stars... the characters have made a mark on the brands...

Eidolon665d ago

No, there is Marcus Fenix too.

Rimeskeem664d ago

I don't think xbox has enough exclusive characters to makes something like that.

Hopefully it will be the game we all wanted the first one to be

It must include characters we actually want, health bars and a lot of content to keep us going.

Th4Freak665d ago

I think the roster is ok but the lack of handicap/health killed the whole game for me because there was no strategy or skills, just spam buttons and gather bubbles.

-Foxtrot665d ago

It killed the game for me....the only way to kill your opponent is to use supers, I mean it just seemed it was done to separate it's self from Smash Bros.

jujubee88664d ago

Thank you for sharing your thoughts in a short and collective manner. However, I must disagree with your aim for the sequel to this IP (a spin off or different game with PS icons/idols, perhaps).

I liked the original games systems+mechanics and I'm able to express my rudimentary fighting game skills all while being competent against others in even the most highest skilled competitive environments.

As far as tastes go, to each their own.

jujubee88665d ago

Release it whenever. Just make it by a good groups of devs and designers.. and don't cut them shortly after (like the first). There's such a thing as balance patches!

BitbyDeath665d ago

Still think the game should have been 3D and not 2D.

WeAreLegion665d ago

Agreed. Many more possibilities.
