IGN - Colin and Andrew have first impressions on PlayStation's new mascot brawler.
and i will be unbelievably broke.
Oh fo sho I am going top support the hell out of this game. I love SSB and it's by far my favorite fighting game. The only thing I have wanted from this secret Sony fighter since it was first rumored was that it was similar to Smahs and not just a side scrolling PvP fighter like MK or SF. I love the battle system, the characters and graphics and music. The world mash ups are great and unique. The gameplay is similar but very different than Smash and Sony has a great online community and will support this game big time. I hope to see more on moving/interactive stages, other characters, special items, maybe challenges a story mode or in-game trophies like SSB. The mash up on stages gives me a feeling they might have a cool story to go with the game. I wonder who is next? Nathan Drake...The 3D Dot Heroes Guy?
I hope they include Old or MGS2 Snake
@NukaCola The 3D dot heroe guy would be a nice idea.
Um ... you guys have amnesia or what ? ... You cant spell ignnorant without IGN. Remember ?
@Lachance I dont see why people always try to call some one out for some one else saying. Makes you look like the ignorant one. Just saying
I'd like to see Cyborg Ninja Raiden or Grey Fox
Looks a bit too casual for my taste.
Games like this exploit the hell out of DLC.
In this case, DLC might actually be a great thing. If the core game contains a strong main roster, it'll attract a robust community that request more of their favorites to be added to the roster through DLC, thus creating a stronger community and a stronger game. The same applies to levels, features, etc. As long as Sony and SBE don't pull a Capcom DLC stunt, this game will be great with DLC support.
*the PS2 sits up in it's seat and claps like Orson Welles*
Wait is this ign talking lol
If this game is anything close to super smash bros. Brawl, then it will be a success. Hell I bought my Nintindo Wii JUST for that game alone.
The game looks fantastic so far. The characters look nice, graphics and art style are very impressive. And the gameplay looks like it will take alot of my time from life.
I'm sure they'll do a great job, but something just seems off about it. I think it's the visual aspect. While Nintendo's characters all look great in smash bros since they share similar aesthetics across all the key Nintendo franchises, it looks a bit wrong having cartoony characters fighting Killzone characters on a God of War stage. It doesn't mesh as well and feels wrong adding characters from mature games to a game that's clearly aiming for a lower rating classification and trying to be more humourous. I guess the diversity of Sony's franchises doesn't really seem right when they're put together, and makes them seem a bit cheap and ridiculous to me...
Cant wait to kick the fat princess's ass with kratos definatly gonna have some fun with that
LOOL yeah that would be an interesting fight anyway the game looks GREAT! Sony just needs to try to keep these announcments quiet so its all the more satisfying when its revealed!...
I would of not read your comment if it wasn't for your profile pic :)
Can't wait for this game. Looks incredibly fun.
first move and now this, wow sony is full of nintendos ideas this gen I thrive on your hate
You thrive on hate?!? That's kinda pathetic.
You only have my pity.
Pretty much and as always sony makes them better.
You think this game is going to be better than Super Smash BrotherS?
The Wii and Nintendos motion controls are a rip off of Sony's Eyetoy plans 10 years ago
And Sony's Eyetoy was a rip off of Nintendo's Power Glove (1989).
oh you mean this Power Glove? The Power Glove was originally released in 1989. Though it was an officially licensed product, Nintendo was not involved in the design or release of this accessory. Rather, it was designed by Grant Goddard and Samuel Cooper Davis for Abrams Gentile Entertainment (AGE), made by Mattel in the United States. the one made and developed and produced by another company. which Nintendo was not involved in anyway to its design or release? yea that one...Lmao
@joeorc Wow. I haven't seen someone get owned that badly in over a year. Good work!
You know there's video of the MOVE prototype being demoed prior to the Wii announcement. It just took the Wii to be successful for Sony to want to production
"You know there's video of the MOVE prototype being demoed prior to the Wii announcement. It just took the Wii to be successful for Sony to want to production" as i already pointed out, no matter how well the Wii was going to do, All three companies Microsoft included was going to do motion control. Sony and Microsoft had to wait they had no other choice..due to price of components at the time. think of how much the kinect would have cost to release back in 2005?. because the units could have been released than. the price of the xbox360 was $399.00+ the kinect released much later an was what? that's right $149.00 its not that Microsoft did not want to release it they had to wait..cost in components was too high of a cost. Sony the same thing. multi- colored LED's magnetic sensor to offset sensor drift. ARM 7 chip inside the Move, acc/gyroscope+ add in the cost of the Playstation Eye to boot+nav controller. now add up those components for a release back in 2006! ontop of the base price of the PS3 which was starting @ $500.00 which many gamers was upset about and adding Move to the above cost,what do people think is going to happen? Sony had no choice but to wait. you have many chuckle heads claiming: but..but they could have dropped BLU-Ray instead. yes lets just drop the investment an R&D COST'S THAT Sony was investing into since 1997, and that Sony already released Blu-Ray to the open market in 2003. example: The first Blu-ray Disc prototypes were unveiled in October 2000 Sony Shows First Blu-Ray Recorder Drive uses blue-laser technology to boost DVD storage to 27GB. By Martyn Williams, IDG News Mar 3, 2003 9:00 am http://www.pcworld.com/arti... also which had support from: The format is backed by Sony, Hitachi, LG Electronics, Matsushita Electric Industrial (Panasonic), Philips Electronics, Pioneer Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sharp, and Thomson Multimedia. all with movie production companies getting on board. with the above that Blu-Ray optical drives still played standard DVD's. Where a new format for a HD movies was being chosen, and yet the PS3 was designed to be a living room entertainment system. yea lets just drop all that cost in R&D AND ROLL OVER for another format that had only ONE manuf. at the Time Toshiba which made HD-dvd. While Sony an the main optical drive manuf. over 11 of them chose to support Blu-Ray over HD-DVD. silly to spend that money just to say oh well? GET REAL. many gamer's are not using common sense Nintendo even had to wait on motion plus for the WiiMotes because the added cost would have been increased even right now online cost's $8.00 back in 2006 what would the cost have been? more than $8.00 that's for sure
To be honest..it looks exactly like super smash bros.
Hey guys look captain obvious kicked open, a open door.. Doesnt mean it cant be fun dont see anyone complaining that the new tomb raider is heavily borrowing elements from uncharted. Or the fact that dante's inferno was inspired by god of war its how industries work.
dante inferno was burned to hell (pun non intended) by ps3 gamers for copying GOW III, and rightfully so, thats a shameful rip off. EDIT: forza? really? weak! how possibly you gonna differentiate yourself in a cars sim? try again. this is a fantasy fighting game. the possiblities are vast!
@dark-hollow Forza was never crucified for ripping off GT.
"Forza was never crucified for ripping off GT." Really dude ? Thats like saying football game A ripped off football game B, thats just stupid.
@dark-hollow : Forza isn't a sim, so you're right it's not a rip-off of GT. Changing real world tracks in the name of "fun" makes it an arcade/sim hybrid.
"Forza was never crucified for ripping off GT." I think you should do some research. Not did SONY fanboys only bashed Forza left and right for "ripping off" GT, but Nintendo also got bashed when there were rumors about a GT like game for the Wii U. Now that SONY is making a game pretty much identical to SSB, SONY fanboys start their Worship SONY fest. Go figure.
" dont see anyone complaining that the new tomb raider is heavily borrowing elements from uncharted. Or the fact that dante's inferno was inspired by god of war its how industries work." "Forza was never crucified for ripping off GT." What? WHAT!? All of those games have been heavily criticized on this site, no less, for copying elements from precursor games. Wow. The level of cognitive dissonance is amazing. All Stars Battle Royale looks way too much like SSB, and not only that, the first slew of Sony characters shown off are not interesting enough to be featured players. It's "Riiidge Racer" all over again. Fat Princess, General Radec, Parapa Rappa? Hahahaha. Kratos and Sweet Tooth are awesome. No problems with them being in this game. But where is Crash Bandicoot? If I buy this game it will be for the 3rd party characters that are rumored to be included. But the developer already mentioned DLC possibilities so I'm hesitant to get it on day one or month one or year one.
As much ambivalence as I hold toward Nintendo characters (mostly because of their broad excessive use over the last 20 years), they have quite a few iconic faces. Sony does as well, but hopefully General Radec and Fat Princess serve as the *least* well-known characters. Anything more obscure would suggest they're a little past scraping the bottom of the barrel.
Honestly it doesn't matter what style they would have come up with for this game it would be just like other fighters on the market since they're a million and one fighters made since the beginning of gaming. i say what's the big deal that this is like smash bros the gamers who love that will most likely love this game, and from what I've read of moat peoples comments they are happy about this announcement.
It has the elements of Super smash Bros. Bayonetta has all the elements of DMC. Dante's Inferno has all the elements of GOW. Uncharted has all the elements of Tomb Raider. Almost all FPS has the elements of COD! All with different coats and tweaks on it. Are they bad games? No, they were all enjoyable and fun to play. edit: I forgot the Gran Turismo and Forza Comparison.
Funny, people think CoD came up with most of its elements on its own. It too is an expansion of previously successful ideas.
Im just using a popular example. I know COD is also using elements from FPS if you trace it back to the 90's PC era. Heck, many games were classified as Doom clones.
there is a big difference from being influenced by other games and just blatantly rip them off! dante inferno did the same with GOW III and a lot of gamers bashed them for that. why try hiding behind microsoft stole this or that? again, a HUGE difference from influence and blatantly copying.
...I've never said this to anyone but stuff it, seriously. If you want to scream ripoff, then maybe Microsoft ripping off of the toy comes to mind. Or ripping off of the GT series. Or popular games these days ripping off of past games. Pathetic. If you're not interested in this game, then why are you people here? EDIT: Call of Duty games ripped off of many ideas in the past. But of course they get a free pass.
My issue is that if you do a rip off , wich it is (dont mind) , why not at least have a gorgeous and polished looking one ? Upscaling dissidia in HD would even actually look better than this . Ths might be fun , but doesnt look great , and the gameplay doesnt even seems like some alternative to smash bros . It's basically the Stamina mode of smash bros , minus everything else . I'll pass , judging from what i've seen so far
So would you say Microsoft and Nintendo putting double joysticks on their controllers like Sony did or grafting a second joystick on the 3DS blatantly copying? I'll bet you don't. Bet you would never say that. @ Baka-akaB. So you have played it then? So far everyone who has played it has said how fun it is. So you are judging it on what you have seen on internet screens as opposed to the people who actually played it and had fun? I guess that makes you the expert right?
Uncharted doesn't have all the elements of the old, and best, Tomb Raider games (TR 1-4), but the new Tomb Raider may have all the elements of Uncharted. There was much more exploration and puzzle solving in the old Tomb Raiders. Better puzzles too.
the graphics and character choices are terrible, but the gameplay looks pretty fun. Hopefully we see some real quality sony characters revealed, though they are few and far between.
Do you and SuprLupe and others have nothing to do but complain about things you don't have any interest in? You're in every article about this game, bitching about something, knowing full well you won't buy it. Go find something better to do with your time.
You act like Nintendo has a whole bunch of amazing characters.
hah! hahahaha no longer will I get my ass handed to me in super smash bros...well I still will but not in this game. THIS will be the game I train and train and train and become master! I will laugh in their sad faces. hahahahaaahahaaaa
This game will end up being awesome and looking astounding bet that.
This was the big IGN reveal... ffs
Halo was a rip off of Unreal Tournament.
No. Halo was a rip-off of Tribes. ;)
This game is a rip off of SSB. You can back up against a corner and point fingers all you want, attacking your perceived enemies (Xbox/Halo fans, I gather?) but that doesn't make you seem any more intelligent. If you want a different perspective of this game (how other people feel about it), step out of the N4G bubble and head over to Neogaf. Here's a quote from a user that I thought made a fair point. "But no seriously, the problem I have is that there is a standard of quality in Smash that is automatically being attributed to this game merely by association when, in fact, there's no evidence to suggest that the developers are talented enough to pull off a Smash-like game that succeeds on its own merits. Basically, if the implicit selling point is "It's just like smash brothers!" that's an automatic red flag from the start."
The point is there is nothing wrong with having a game like this on psn. Why> because I could care less or even know what a kirby is. LIke someone on neogaf said. NES was great when I was a kid, but from teenager to adult, I grew up playing playstation characters. Therefore a similar game but with ps characters not nintendo characters are more exciting to me. Later on when ms gets mascots that don't have guns, and you all get your xbox smash game it will be exciting to those that grew up with xbox characters. No one complained that gears was a rip off of black. The hate here i'm sure is primarily just sony hate. I'm excited for this title.
Need.... more..... INFO want to know what characters .. levels etc I am watching EVERY video I see about this game lol
So far I've seen 6 characters in action, and can't wait to see more! Kratos Fat Princess Parappa the Rappa Sweet Tooth Sly Cooper and a Helghan Can only imagine how many others could be in there!
The helgan DFogz mentioned is Colonel Radec.
i think a lot of people are missing a key factor in this game. SONY can use this game to even market other games. I'm sure some people will be like this sweet tooth guy were is he from.. etc. remember most gamers don't buy/play every game, and go on gaming news websites.
i wonder if sony can bring in megaman.. one of most wanted characters for SB. do it!
It would seal the deal for me!
This looks awesome. It looks similar to SSB but who cares, Sony has a more diverse range of characters to pick from anyway. I love Parappa being in it.
Give meee Square Enix/squaresoft characters!!!
Hopefully they will include Play, Create and Share elements.
Agreed. I'm so glad SSBB did that, but they didn't go far enough. I want full control over level design!
Definitely getting this. Just hope it doesn't suffer from cheapness or cheaters online. If you can't play fair, then f*ck off!
A definite day 1 buy for me.
