Power Stone 2 Is Everything I Want Super Smash Bros. to Be

GeekParty writes: "Technically speaking, Smash Bros. predates Power Stone 2. While the original Power Stone made its debut in 1999, the sequel wasn’t released until 2000, one year after the first Smash Bros. title. They were two similar games that happened to come out around the same time, and it’s unlikely that either title influenced the other in any way."

powerstone is in my top 3 as far as dreamcast games go. with that said i like my powerstone stoney and i like my smash bros smashy....

since sony has ps allstars and nintendo obviously has smash id like to see microsoft pay capcom for powersone 3 exclusive to xb1...id preorder it

wonderfulmonkeyman3616d ago

I'd prefer Powerstone 3 to hit all 3 consoles if possible, but I do see the logic in your statement since Microsoft doesn't really have anything like Smash or PSAS.[which I still believe is a Brawl clone with super meters, but w/e]

fatneal3616d ago

i say microsoft because nintendo has smash so hypothetically speaking if nintendo bought capcom they would never revive powerstone...and sony wouldnt either because they have PSAS

and yes PSAS is brawl lite...has great potential though...im sure the sequel on ps4 will be much better

frezhblunts3616d ago

Besides why would microsoft get that game, they got killer instinct so far

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory3616d ago

except SSB was originally a SNES game after Kirby Super Star. It then move to N64. But it was Dragon King the fighting game first before Nintendo mascots flooded Sakurai mind.

frezhblunts3616d ago

I loved Power Stone as a kid and power stone 2 made it all the better, I still have the first one and the sega dreamcast but I got to admit Super Smash bros is way better, I feel like I need a lot more skills in smash bros to win. Super Smash bros is just the better game and I hope they don't make it like power stone, don't ruin a good game ;0


Why Greninja Won Pokémon of the Year

In a relatively short time, Generation VI's Ninja Pokémon has become wildly popular, outpacing nearly 900 other Pokemon.


What Super Smash Bros. owes SNK and Terry Bogard

While some Smash fans may have hoped for a more recognizable character, Super Smash Bros. as a whole has borrowed so much from SNK games that Terry is a natural fit. In fact, an SNK character probably should have been included much earlier.

Super Smash Bros. didn’t just emerge, fully formed, as a way for Nintendo to keep contemporary characters in the front of our minds while introducing newer players to classic characters, games, and even music. The series owes a lot to SNK, and The King of Fighters.

Interesting how many elements of Fatal Fury and King of Fighters is in SSB


Japanese censors demanded panty checks for female SSB characters during development

When Super Smash Bros. Creator, Masahiro Sakurai, showcased Smash Ultimate's latest guest fighter, Terry Bogard, he brought up the fact that one of Fatal Fury's most popular characters, Mai Shiranui, would not be making an appearance in the game at all and alluded to her sexual nature as the main reason.

It turns out that Sakurai and his team had a bit of a back and forth with CERO during the development of Super Smash Bros. for Wii-U circa 2012 as the rating organization actually asked the Smash team to turn female characters upside down for panty shot angles.

Well now it makes sense why some of the character clothes in smash Bros was changed

Abriael1636d ago (Edited 1636d ago )

Censors? CERO isn't a censorship organization. It's a rating board and it's no more censors than the ESRB.

They don't ask you to censor your game. They give you a rating depending on its content, no more, no less. If you want a lower rating than what you're given, that's on you.

Teflon021635d ago

Stop playing dumb lol.
You know Nintendo is aiming for a low board rating so they have to censor to get it based on what the board deems reason to raise it

Abriael1635d ago (Edited 1635d ago )

@Teflon02: I'm well aware, but that's on Nintendo. They have the freedom to keep the content intact and accept a higher rating. It doesn't make CERO into "censors" in any shape or form.

That's simply not what a rating board is. Censors dictate content. A rating board does not. It assigns a rating based on the existing content.

TK-661635d ago

Then that's on Nintendo, and not the ratings board.

TK-661635d ago

Yeah, I'm not seeing the issue with them asking to see if characters actually have underwear modeled. That would actually be reason to give the game a higher age rating. If Sakurai included them and Nintendo then removed them to achieve a lower age rating that would've made Nintendo the censors.

A rating board has every right to ask for this to accurately rate the game.

bluefox7551635d ago

Let's be honest, a game won't be sold by retailers in the US if it has an AO rating, they have power over the industry, even if they're only a "rating board".

Abriael1635d ago

That's completely unrelated, and the rating board still does not require any change to the content. The developer has full freedom to distribute the game via other means.

Calling a rating board "censors" couldn't be less accurate. That's simply not their job.

annoyedgamer1635d ago

Ratings Org can shift around elements and the ratings they garner. Im not saying that was done here but it's heen done in the US feature films and the MPAA.

I hope they did not ask to check Dark Samus under that armour.

Tross1635d ago

That would be an interesting job duty, even if it’s in the name of censorship. Someone was literally paid to do a panty check on female characters, lulz.

Abriael1635d ago (Edited 1635d ago )

It's not in the name of censorship. It's in the name of not giving a CERO A rating (All ages) to a game that doesn't fit its content guidelines.

Tross1634d ago

It’s still dumb no matter what you call it. Equestria Girl dolls have panties. Are those not child-friendly? Besides, in talking about Japan, you don’t want to know what CoroCoro comics get away with. A panty shot or two might as well be CERO A.

Abriael1634d ago

@Tross: you're comparing entirely different industries with different rules.

ibrake4naps1635d ago

Games will show muscle men's nips, but God forbid a quick glimpse of princess Peach's vagina. Hypocrisy!!!
