Wow, a side-scrolling brawler with active backgrounds starring all of the characters in a company's library! Nobody's done that before!

I kid I kid: It might actually be kinda fun. And it already has two improvements over Brawl...better graphics and online that won't suck!

Parappa the Rapper and a Patapon level? Well played Sony, well played.

LOCO ROCO OR GTFO.

#3 Mesoian on 7 years ago

Not interested. Konami couldn't do it and they're smash-style game had Optimus fucking Prime vs. Barbie.

Honestly, I don't think Sony really has enough characters to call its own to justify having a Smash Bros clone. Its gameplay gimmick doesn't help it either; from what I've read somewhere, it seems the only way to kill someone is to do this game's version of a Final Smash. You know, because everybody loved the Smash Ball in Brawl and totally didn't disable it after a few matches. /sarcasm

I'll really consider getting this game if Nathan Drake, Cole McGrath, and/or Sackboy make it in. I just hope the gameplay isn't Dissidia Final Fantasy on a 2-D battlefield. I'm more hoping it plays like Super Smash Bros., but focusing on depleting your opponent's health, not knocking them off-screen.

It has Parappa and Fat Princess. I'm sold.

Stealing this post from another forum I frequent.

[quote]If you're that hung up over semantics despite the fact that All-Stars will also consist of third-party properties, then I don't know if the list that I got these games from is exhaustive, but these are some Sony-owned franchises/properties that I think could lend some characters/environments to the game:

Ape Escape
Arc the Lad
Dark Cloud
Dark Mist
Demon's Souls
Dead Nation
Discworld
Folklore
Fat Princess
Genji
God of War
Gravity Rush
Heavenly Sword
Ico
inFamous
Jak and Daxter
Jeanne d'Arc
Killzone
The Last Guardian
The Last of Us
The Legend of Dragoon
Legend of Legaia
Lemmings
LittleBigPlanet
The Mark of Kri / Rise of the Kasai
MediEvil
ModNation Racers
Okage: Shadow King
PaRappa the Rapper
Ratchet & Clank
Resistance
Rogue Galaxy
Shadow of the Colossus
Sly Cooper
Sorcery
Starhawk
Syphon Filter
Twisted Metal
Uncharted
Untold Legends
War of the Monsters
White Knight Chronicles
Wild Arms


The above games/series consist entirely of Sony Characters, and there are quite a few there. They may not be as iconic as Nintendo's, and some of them don't seem (to me) like they would fit in a fighting game. But to be so confused about the claim that a company has its own characters (especially when that company is as large as Sony is, and has been in the industry for as long as they have), is downright odd.

On top of that, we're talking about Sony-published, and third-party-published, characters, not -developed.

WHAT NO BLASTO? LIST FAIL!

[QUOTE=Arc_The_Lad;4374901]A very long list of terrible games no one liked[/QUOTE]

Oh man...AyaBreaLookingLikeCloud.tiff

I mean seriously Untold Legends? Syphon Filter? These are games sony are actively trying to get people to forget about. Genji? Fucking...really? Almost everything good on that list is already confirmed to be in the game, or the developer is COMPLETELY GONE. The world needs another Dark Cloud game but Level-5 cannot be fucked.

The only thing more hilarious than this list is the list people did for Microsoft which is 90% rare characters or games people actively hated. I think Blinx the time cat was at the top of that list.


HAHA, FOLKLORE! Oh god...SMFH Sony. Medieval....oh christ...

It's ok, you still have that Devil May Cry Revamp game coming soon.

[QUOTE=Arc_The_Lad;4375182]It's ok, you still have that Devil May Cry Revamp game coming soon.[/QUOTE]

HAHA! I KNOW RIGHT! EVERYTHING IS FINE! ugh....At least Anarchy Reigns is safe. Sega does one brilliant move announcing everything they needed to in order to get people interested in Sonic and Sega Racing 2, and then tries to brush this under the table. I just feel bad for Kamiya, he seems the most frustrated out of anyone over all of this.

I love Ninja Theory but...nope. Sony cancelled Heavenly Rain 2 last week too right? Geeze....

Honestly though, I think we all know what to expect character wise from this game, pretty much everything from their american 2nd party developers over the past 5 years, a smattering of PS1 classics that people care about (Parappa confirmed and......??? Maybe you can play as the car from GT ala fighters megamix) and whatever managed to get more than 1 franchise game on the PSP. It's not even all that interesting anymore. The real news surrounding this game will be systems and how it plays, because if it's going to be just a normal 4 player fighter with sony characters in it, it's going to fail, just like that 4 player onimusha game failed, just like the konami/matel party game failed, just like Rachet and Clank: 4 For all failed (god, remember when THAT game was this game?). Most of the characters in the confirmed lineup don't even have that required beloved status that made smash brothers work. Kratos fighting "The fat princess" (that doesn't even...) doesn't make sens- oh god it's recursive not making sense.

This game better be fun as hell...It just feels....embarrassing.

#12 Arc_The_Lad on 7 years ago

It's no different than Super Smash, just a big fighting fangasm. Give us your money, Daniel Fortesque is in it.

Also, it's Sony, the DLC will be rage inducing and on disc....

[QUOTE=Mesoian;4375161]*insert claims that no one liked any of those games and that they were all terrible here*[/QUOTE]

Uh... Are you high?

So according to you, no one likes Sly Cooper, Fat Princess, Ape Escape, Dark Cloud, inFamous, Jak and Daxter, Killzone, LBP, MediEvil, PaRappa, Ratchet and Clank, Shadow of the Colossus, Resistance, Uncharted or friggin' GOD OF WAR, nor are any of those games and franchises good. Yeah, okay.

MediEvil was terrible. Everyone else except for Ape Escape (Because that franchise is dead) and the team Ico stuff, which I do not expect to be in this game except as a background maybe, may as well be confirmed to be in the game already. I just found a giant list filled with the obvious inclusions and C to D tier games hilarious. It's one of those things were it feels like fans are scrapping the bottom of a very shallow barrel trying to make this game seem like a good idea.

Having Kratos fight "the fat princess" is not a good idea. It's a complete clash of styles that will be completely unable to stand the test of time (and by that I mean after an hour, everyone will be fucking over this hodgepodge of a mess). It feels like a giant Vita ad; as if Sony has to go out and remind people that the Vita exists and everyone in this game has a game that can be played on it. It's pretty gross, and I'm not confident in their ability to make this fun to play. At least Marvel is...fun (because it ain't good...), but you know what to expect there. As I said earlier, if this is merely a copy of smash brothers, this will tank, especially with this assortment of characters.

They should have gone a different direction. This seems like the easy cash-in tripe that only works on paper. With the exception of smash brothers, none of these "Multi-Franchise Party Fighting Games" have ever sold well. The handful that I can think of off the top of my head didn't even break 50,000.
