w00t! looking good. I seriously need this on my PSP

umair_s515434d ago

After reading gamespot's review, I am concerned about the value here. For some reason they've removed the arcade mode :( And the story mode i.e. the gauntlet is basically a practice mode with some story strings attached to it. But the game looks good and plays like Soul Calibur!

andron5434d ago (Edited 5434d ago )

Too bad I generally suck at fight games, but I enjoy them nonetheless.

Soul Calibur is just fast and fun whatever the system you play it on...

rCrysis5434d ago

well uh...this one is coming out on PSP only. or so Namco says so.

andron5434d ago

I just meant that I have played it on PS2 and PS3 before. And that it's great to have a hand held version now...

Don't care what anyone says, Smash isn't a traditional fighting game. May as well call Powerstone and Playstation All Stars fighting games. They're more of an arena fighter /party game.

NotoriousWhiz426d ago

You don't have to care what anyone says. It's not a traditional fighting game. But it is a fighting game.

I mean what makes them an arena fighter than say something like Tekken? Because there’s platforms?

NatsuXTheMaxspeed21426d ago

because theres a bunch of pokeballs and other random stupid stuff on stage that you can use at your advantage and flying ultra super power ball that you got to chase on the stage to get your ougi LMAO.

@NatsuXTheMaxspeed21

I mean what it sounds like is they took a fighting game and “added” unique mechanics to it to me.

When I think arena game I think of things like Spawn: In the Demon’s Hand or Virtual-On.

Smash to me is a fighting game, they have fighting game tournaments for it. It just doesn’t jive with me to call it “not a fighting game” because you have poke-balls and platforms or because it has 4 players at once duking it out.

Power Stone I’d consider a fighting game as well. Hell, if you google what it is everyone calls these games “fighting games”. So yea, they’re fighting games…

Immagaiden426d ago

What’s next, you gonna say Mario Kart isn’t a racing game?

NatsuXTheMaxspeed21426d ago

oh its a racer but its not a realistic one like GT or Forza. only kids check for mario kart and smash .

Immagaiden426d ago

I didn’t say it was realistic. I said racing game. Does Burnout not being realistic make it not a racing game?

What does a demographic have to do with a genre? Do kids playing CoD make it any less an FPS? You see how ridiculous bringing up that subject is?

repsahj425d ago

"Only kids and kids at heart check for mario kart and smash".

-fixed!

FallenAngel1984426d ago (Edited 426d ago )

Nobody said it was a traditional fighter. Everyone acknowledges it as a platform fighter

PSASBR & Power Stone are fighting games, the former being a platform fighter and the latter an arena fighter

gleepot425d ago

You're correct, it isn't traditional. It's a fighting game though.

repsahj425d ago

Because if cute and lovable characters are fighting it's not a fighting game? XD As long there's a versus fighting, it is a fighting game.

Including Smash Bros in a list of fighting games, is like including GTA in Racing games.

NotoriousWhiz426d ago

I hate to break it to you but smash bros has fighting game tournaments so it qualifies.

MrNinosan426d ago

"and here's how it competes against other fighters"

No, Mortal Kombat doesn't compete with games like Smash Bros? It's a different genre for a different audience.

NatsuXTheMaxspeed21426d ago

Anybody can host a tournament in their garage it doesnt mean it qualifies.

NotoriousWhiz426d ago

I'm going to assume you're not part of the FGC. However, I am, and I can tell you that there is a ton of overlap between people who play smash competitively and those who play other fighting games competitively.

Now for casuals, there is a lot less overlap between the two for sure.

PapaBop426d ago

While technically true, Leffen comes to mind, FGC and Smash community have always had a rocky relationship.

Thundercat77426d ago

And yet, If Smash Bros was over 80 million, you wouldn't be complaining. On the contrary, you would be bragging about it.
