I would have written it as to improve balancing and more but whatever.

Sensu2252d ago

Good point. Should've done that instead...

greenpowerz2252d ago (Edited 2252d ago )

Not good balancing then?

Sometimes these translations come out in Engrish

i love when games are balanced

SolidStoner2252d ago

It depends on a game.. If its a simulation type game.. then it needs to be as real as possible, balancing would spoil the game.

But yes, games like "All-Stars Battle Royale" strongly needs good balancing!

toxic-inferno2251d ago

True, but then with these games, it's always important to have some characters which are easier to use than others. Some characters have to be more technically challenging to play as, and therefore harder to win with.

So the delay was to a) fix the network connectivity and get the online mode working well and b) better balance out the characters so one isn't super overpowered and the other is super lame?

That sounds like the two main problems I had with Super Smash Bros Brawl. Terrible online that takes forever to get a game and very poor balance. I'm happy they delayed it to fix those things, just means a better game. Besides, it's only an extra month, unlike most game delays which are much longer. Bioshock Infinite got a 5 month delay from it's original date.

im happy they delayed it also so they can work out the balancing issues
but i also did wish i could get my hands on it now
i currently have nothing to play=[

NBT912252d ago

Trust me, there is not much to do on there, six characters and even less stages as of now...
But they updated it today, so by the time it goes public there may be even more content! =)

MySwordIsHeavenly2252d ago

Even with six characters, it's a total BLAST to play! I just wish we could get some local multi-player going. :/

StrawberryDiesel4202251d ago

How could you have nothing to play?? There are so many games on PS3 that I bet you haven't played. Between PSN games and retail releases, there's always something to play.

princejb1342250d ago


yea theres a few but i prefer getting a game that i could play online that will the 60 dollar price tag is worth it for its replay ability

The game is delayed because, as I understood it, SB wanted to implement some of the feedback from the private beta testers gave.

This article is ludicrously worded, to say that the balance is bad is misleading and paints a wrong impression. I don't know if it's because of the translation, but it comes off all wrong

NBT912252d ago

Yeah, the balance issues were not a problem for me personally.
The problems were that, some of the supers fail to activate at times, or cause all other characters to permanently freeze (level 3 supers occasionally give out bugs)

Freezing at end of rounds occasionally, not being able to play with friends, no lobbies, just play with randomers and you have to find new players every game....

Granted its a beta, but with only like.... Three months is it to release? It is not entirely great. Even if they are only testing the networking itself, it needs work.

Sono4212251d ago

The online in Brawl yes I agree with, but the characters needing to be more balanced? Definitely not.

ChunkyLover532252d ago

Well better to be delayed then shipped broken.

CanadianTurtle2252d ago

Ya, its better to not get the angry Nintendo fanboys to be crazier than they already are about this game.

Sgt_Slaughter2252d ago

The only ones who are mad are the Xbox 360 fans who won't ever have a 4-player mash-up fighting game because they would only have like 6 characters.

Anyway, I hope I can get the Vita before the release date because this looks so much fun.

Nexgensensation2252d ago

actually thats all they need! M$ just need to draft a couple 3rd party characters

ZeroWil2251d ago

Why does everyone think 360 fans want a 4-player fighting game? I personally don't want one, especially since I could just play the SSB games. >_>

rezzah2252d ago

Makes me think of games shipped with a day one patch.

Ice cream, anyone? Nom nom nom
