Gamespot: "We get a demo for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale."
Nifty video, I'm surprised Nathan Drake wasn't a playable character in the demo. o_o Would think he'd be one of the first characters put into the game lol.
Same but the funny thing about that is. Paul Gale went into specifics with 7 characters on November last year and 6 of them of revealed, the last one was Nathan Drake. I just find that suspicious. Sony saw it and went with those but decided to hold Drake for E3? http://paulgalenetwork.com/... "Nathan Drake’s moves involve him punching up close, but for most of his attacks, he’s an all-range fighter: he uses a pistol, grenade, and rifle. He’ll probably be the character that most resembles Solid Snake from Brawl. His Level 1 bar attack is him pushing over a statue onto his opponents. His Level 3 super is turning enveryone into defenseless monsters where he can then beat them up. His recovery move is a zipline."
Yep looks like he was completely right about it all
saying that Nathan Drake is most like Snake from Smash Bros makes me think Snake won't be in Playstation All Stars. He seriously needs to be in it with like a super move where he starts off as old snake and he pulls out some regain and drinks it to become young snake.
Wow, He was actually correct. I guess next time he spills out info, it'll be in our best interest to trust it this time around.
this is based off the link afterlife put out- "If you fall/get knocked off a stage without recovering back onto it, you’ll die. On stages without ledges, you’ll die by a big enough attack or enough back-to-back damage (or environmental death)." Does that mean that there could possibly be other modes besides KO only wins? I hope so because I would be disappointed if the game only had matches where you need to KO someone with a super.
I love that the Buzz question popped up and where you stand is your answer. I wonder what you get if you answer it correctly? The time was counting down so I wonder if it was sort of skipped. I got to say the interaction of these levels are amazing. Just form what I saw, I am sold. I really am curious to see what they have in store for E3.
Agreed. Have you seen the Killzone jetpack part yet? Looks pretty cool, I think (hope) there is going to be a lot of cool little things in the game like that.
i want this game NOW sony TAKE MY MONEY looks awesome the only ting i dislike at this moment is the stupid stamina bar which you have to build up to get specials, and also the specials is the only way to get a kill yea thats pretty retarded i hope they change this
That's like saying "The only thing I don't like is the entire concept of the game we've seen so far"
Nathan Drake isn't exactly a legendary Playstation icon since he's only been on the Ps3. I'd pick Jak And Daxter, Raziel, Solid Snake, Spyro, Lara Croft before Nathan Drake.
But I'm saying... This is the PS3 gen, and Drake has been like the flagship character for Playstation during this generation. That's mainly why I would have thought he would be the first we'd see, or at least in the demo lol. Trust me, I hope we see Jak and Daxter, Raziel, Kain, Snake, Spyro, Lara, and plenty others as well.
Even Crash Bandicoot...hell he's the original mascot
Ah yes I see your point. I'm from the ps2/ps1 era so Nathan Drake doesn't really strike me as iconic playstation. I don't know any of these new era characters.
Parappa & Kratos were around long before Nathan Drake. Just sayin'.
Is it just me or did anyone else keep confusing Parappa's hat with Lucas's hair from Smash Bros?
Not at all http://images.wikia.com/ssb... http://images.wikia.com/par... lol
Wait a second. Did anyone else notice what I did? The white lines that people keep complaining about isn't around the players all the time. It must be some sort of effect that signifies something happening like a power up or something.Look carefully and especially at the characters at the beginning and during the match. The white outline comes and goes. See what I say about jumping to conclusions? @ Nitrowolf2. I guess some of us owe him an apology. Next time he says something I guess we can trust it to be true.
i noticed it too good eye man
The white lines are indicator that you have a special ready. Its not present when you have no special. More information at Neogaf. They compiled everything there. Just ignore the trolls of Sony and Ninty fanboys. Its funny that people complain about it before they read the preview. *Looking at Neogaf*
Probably has to do with those power balls that you can beat out of opponents
The white outline determines your super level. I think the higher your super level, the more you glow. No Super Level - No Glow
Also, the graphics looks good in this vid as well. There were several people complaining about the graphics being PS2/Wii like. And compared to other vids this one looked even less like a SSB game compared to the bits we've only been able to see before (not to say that it still doesn't look like a SSB clone). Like you said people need to stop jumping to conclusions and just wait for more roster and gamplay details to come out.
I guess so, but when Sly Cooper leaps down and lands on the ground in the beginning, his right foot disappears into the ground. And this particular level lacks a significant lighting source so the character shadows are simple and round and directly underneath the bodies for the most part. But I do think Sweeth Tooth's flames on his head cast shadows so that's impressive. Complex shadows are also cast by bright move effects like the bursts of light that occur during an attack. The art styles for Sony games are very diverse, which is good, but taking the players out of their natural elements and putting them in these types of arenas really seems strange. At least with Nintendo, a lot of their games have similar, cartoony styles so they seem to fit well with one another. Kratos and Parappa seem very unfitting together. And that damn LBP editor box needs to go. Stop taking up screen space for no reason.
I compared this to SSB... it looks way better than that game visual wise. I have no idea why people say such utter NONSENSE. Go on youtube and check them both side by side, clearly see the visuals on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal are significantly better than SSB. I hope Sony allows us to create our own levels in this game though. Play Create and share will work really well for this game.
This game will be on the PS Vita aswell. Omar has made mental corrections repeatedly when he speaks about this game. Sony has some great titles this year for everyone. Karting, Battle Royal and Last of us. I just hope that the Vita does not get left out even though there is MK and Burning skies this month the Gravity Rush next month but other than that Vita titles are scarce. Has LBP release date been announced or Killzone..........
makes me even more excited being able to hear kratos "Rawwwr!" as he kicks the shit out of the opponents
Yeah I was the same. Parappa looks really fun to play too lol his moves are funny.
Nice video, u see a title screen, part of the level select screen, and the screen after the game ends and u see all the scores and who got 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th places. Seeing more of the game then ever before :)
so this game actually has a health system as opposed to smash bros knock off stage system? have to wait and see.
No health. Best of my knowledge. It's a 1 hit KO system. It's more like you hit opponent and try to gain your super meter. The only way to get kills is by using your super. When the meter is full you gain level 1 super. You can choose to continue to build to level 2 and then level 3. When the super hit's, it's 1 hit KO. Every super can kill multiple opponents. The higher the level the better the super. Level 1 takes skill and level 3 takes less skill and can kill more. Apparently you cannot go to level 3 and decide to use 3x level 1 supers (I hope they fix this).
I don't understand what you want to fix.If you use a level 1 attack you can kill one person, not multiple ones as you think, and you keep fighting until you get another one. If you decide to use a level 3 one you will still get to kill multiple people at once. So why do you want 3 level one attacks when you could just use the big 3 level attack and kill just as many opponents? If you want you could just stick with using level one attacks throughout the whole game since they are the easiest to get and get the same result. Anyway their is nothing saying that isn't the case so I won't assume anything. @ Fez. I can't wait to see what other stages they combine. I wonder who will be together with Uncharted? What would be fun is fighting in front of a crowd with secondary charters in the stands .Just imaging Elena, Coco, Master Onion, Ashlin, Angela Cross,Sparx,Hunter the Cheetah, Carmileta all cheering you on. @ kaveti6616. Yes Snake, Samus and Marth were very cartoony characters and in MVC3 everyone fit so well together. Megaman, Roll, Pheonix Wright and Viewtiful Joe looked very well placed next to Magneto, Hulk and Wolverine. Talk about a killjoy hunting for problems.
@smashcrashbash "If you use a level 1 attack you can kill one person, not multiple ones as you think" Actually, you're completely wrong. You'll kill as many people as you hit with it. It's just harder to hit more opponents at once with lower-level supers. If you watch the video you'll see at one point Kratos uses a lvl 1 super and wipes out all 3 opponents. And other characters hit two people at once with their lvl 1 super in this vid.
I hope they have a few stages with hazard areas like that. It's funny seeing players flying off the edge of the screen.
Game just looks glorious in 60fps. This'll be a perfect stop gap while I wait for Super Smash Bros 4. It's a shame the character reveals are so spread out though. According to the official site the next character reveal(s) will be in 35 days, most likely to coincide with E3. Here's the list of characters I want to see: Nathan Drake Cole McGrath Jak & Daxter Ratchet & Clank Kat (Gravity Rush) Nariko Sackboy Spike (Ape Escape) Crash Bandicoot Spyro Old Snake Cloud Alundra I'll take anything else to be honest. If half of those are in there I'll be more than happy, plus the 6 characters already shown. I reckon a lot of the ones in my list will be in there anyway.
I like the fact they're spreading out the reveals, as frustrating the wait is, it naturally builds up hype. I know the character lineup is going to be amazing! You can bet they'll include as many characters as they can think of, especially the first party/exclusive ones. Nathan Drake, Cole McGrath, J&D, R&C, Nariko and Sackboy will definitely be there. In fact Nariko seems to be confirmed if this dev screen is her: https://cache.nebula.phx3.s... Then you have the Ape Escape monkeys (perhaps a background element like Patapon in the Hades level). Spyro and Crash really should be there, as long as they're licensed. Same with Cloud/Sephiroth and Snake. Characters such as: Wander and Ico (Shadow of the Colossus/Ico), Sir Daniel (MediEvil), Raiden (MGS2/4), Nathan Hale & Chimera (Resistance), Sev (Killzone), Welkin/Alicia (Valkyria Chronicles), Kazuma (Yakuza). A "WipEout" stage similar to the F-Zero one in Smash Bros. Then you have the purely third party stuff: James Bond, who's been confirmed by Paul Gale a while ago. Ezio/Altair (Assassin's Creed), Dante (Devil May Cry), Isaac (Dead Space), Resident Evil/Silent Hill characters, Prince of Persia, Rayman, Lara Croft (Tomb Raider), Big Daddy/Little Sister (BioShock). So definitely lots of potential appearances you've got there.
reminds me of the MKvsDC character reveals. Got us really hyped for a lack luster release. Doubt thats the case here.
nice list there, i want to see those as well
I love the KZ sound effects... the gun shots and especially grenade noises are brilliant.
Including Nathan Drake is simply a must. He is arguably a part of the best and most iconic series on the PS3.
Does anyone remember that 2d platform game hermie hopperhead? I think he would be a great character for this kinda game.
Mmmmm crap. Just like SSB.
your half right.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! It's obvious that Sony is infatuated with Nintendo!
It's obvious that some people are so infatuated with Nintendo that they post the same comment in every thread. That's the only thing obvious to me here.
I am surprised it actually looks like a smb clone. Looks cool but not creative much.
..yeah sure, like every new fight, cars, sports, etc etc games, they are "not so creative"..so, what ? real gamers just want the better games, with best graphics, and sony is giving both + creativity (more than nintendo and crosoft) on other ip.
looks boring. getting knocked around in a box....
oh please I love sony but I will not bow down and worship every game they slap their name on. All I did was give my point of view. I like maybe 70% of all ps3 exclusives so far.
@ Honky Kong, way to have no life and troll the hell out of an awesome looking game. kindly piss off.
Lets look at it this way...... When Forza was created did anyone start going crazy.....I do not know. Sales would show why Forza was made..... GT sold bucket loads and combined sales of prologue and GT5 are still ridiculously high considering all the competition in that space now with Dirt and Forza. Look Capcom and Sega started this sort of thing and Nintendo had to respond to the lack of Capcom crossover and SNK for that matter on their system. Now they have the highest selling "fighting" game. Sony have an opportunity to please alot of gamers who think that SSB is too "childish". They have kid mascots and adult mascots and can get away with a E10 or Teen rating that will be perfect for a me. This is the first SSB type game that I will buy. I liked the Viewtiful Joe one but returned it because the characters were too samey. This could end up a really good game. Sony luckily has alot of first party games to draw from. Nintendo has more established icons like Link, Mario, Samus, Donkey Kong and Zelda but Sony has some really cool critically reviewed games like Shadow of the Colossus, Legend of Dragoon, Wild Arms, Rogue Galaxy where they can get really creative with their game and make it something special. I cannot wait for this game because it has serious potential. I will always need Nintendo for the kids but this game is great for everyone. Kratos, Sweet tooth and Radec out the gate M rated characters with the E rated Sly, Fat P and PARAPPA "the little man" rappa. Gotta love it.
"I will always need Nintendo for the kids but this game is great for everyone" Lol, Im playing Super Smash Bros since Nintendo 64....Its not just for kids, to me, its the most hardcore game. Just look at the tournaments.
Good point of view, I can't see the point of bashing it for being similar to SSB, which it is... I Love SSB and have always loved it, so for me this is great, I can play a similar game to SSB on my PS3 now,,, since the last Nintendo console I owned was the 64.......
Looks pretty good! :)
wow.... can anybody say how badly they ripped off nintendo? well thats no surprise it is sony we are talking about.
Dude, there's a huge difference.
This one uses Sony characters while SSB uses Nintendo characters.
C'mon now, don't be so ignorant.
Haha, I like how you think Sony rips people off. How many new ip's has Nintendo made in the last 10 years? 1-2? Never heard of any except "Generic Platformer *Insert Mario Here* Super Awesome Cool Blast". No offense to people with Nintendo consoles and people who like Nintendo stuff, but stop riding the d*ck of a company that doesn't know you exist. Sure it seems similar, but who gives a sh*t?
have you been gaming for at least 10 years?
Yes I have. And name at least 5new ips by nintendo please. Relevant, full-game ips, not downloadable things. Games that people actually know nad give an s about.
Man, don't you or strifeblade hear how you guys sound right now? People don't need to pick sides. Actually, this whole argument is silly. Think about it: Nintendo people bash Sony for copying Smash Bros, but Sony fans say "Who cares if they are? It's a good and fun formula for gameplay, and it's what the fans want." Meanwhile, Sony fans claim Ninty can do nothing but rehash their same franchises and never make new ip's. I could list a ton of great new Nintendo ip's in the last 10 years, and whether or not you consider them quality titles is a matter of opinion, but that's not the point. Nintendo makes use of their old standbys because they "offer a good and fun formula for gameplay and it's what the fans want. Ironic, isn't it?
Hey, newsflash! There were games before SSB's time! Going by your logic, Nintendo ripped off of those games too! Now run along and stop while you're at it. Devinchi33: I like Nintendo too but your argument is silly. First of all, we're only seeing ONE mode of the game. You cannot automatically assume Sony copied from Nintendo because going with that logic, Nintendo did the same thing. I don't see why this game is a threat...seriously. Sony fans wanted a game like this for a while. Let us have our fun, okay? And where are the new Nintendo IP's? You didn't list them.
You can`t be serious in this post. You just can`t.
Why would I not be serious? SSB isn't original because there were games that existed before it's time. People need to stop with this crap that Sony copied SSB. The truth must hurt, I know.
Why are you trolling? There was nothing like SSB before Nintendo 64. There was an article about 50 New Nintendo IPs Since Year 2000, for trolls like you. And yes, all of them were qualitative games.
I'm actually very excited for All-Stars. I'm a fan of SSB and it doesn't bother me that All-Stars is "inspired" by SSB in the least. Imitation is the highest form of flattery and all that. Honestly, I'm surprised it took them this long to do something like it.
Hmmmm, that ain't Kratos' voice :S
