I've been trying to pimp out the Axel Stone petition in a few places (to Streets of Rage fans mainly) since I feel that series should get some representation in the 3D era. There is no way he will get considered, which is disappointing, but I hope him and Blaze get enough votes to at least make them noticeable for something else.

I'm really sad Axel Stone isn't getting much love. If there is one character (and franchise) I'd like to see get represented here it's his. Especially when I realize that as a whole Streets of Rage gets almost zero reference in these games. (Aside from an achievement in the first one :/)
Anyways he got my vote.
Guess my yearly Deadly Premonition playthrough will continue for 3 more years. Personally I don't think much needed to be fixed (aside from that god-awful map), but I still look forward to the gameplay changes with excitement. I really wonder what those added scenarios will be.
Aw man and here I thought there was going to be an article about a sequel or re-release for ILLBLEED, or something with the developers of the game. I fell for that thumbnail, hook, line, and sinker.
Still, I am glad to see it getting some attention. I think it is worth checking out for anybody that likes strange games. (And owns a Dreamcast)
I may be the minority on this but that sounds terrible. (So far)
I don't really care for Superman Vs. Batman type plotlines, heck I don't really care much for when they are in the same room. That said I'm sure it will be presented well, since I really enjoyed what they did with MK9's story, but if this is true then I just lost more interest.
You know, Lego without licensed properties attached to it. Lego Island was good too.
Rocket Racer needs to return, and none of that Evil Knievel ish. Plus more representation of classic themes.
I suddenly feel the urge to play Outfoxies (1994).
And here I was thinking of being clever by saying that Smash Bros is a rip-off of The Outfoxies.
But in all seriousness, the more the merrier. As some have already said, the genre needs competition, simple as that. Sony All-Stars may be disappointing in the "personality" department or in really feeling like a celebration of "Playstation gaming" or whatever, but I admire that the guys at SuperBot are walking into this with a different gameplay mentality, which is enough for me to at least want to try it out and see how it plays. I firmly believe that everyone has to start somewhere, and that once you got your feet on the ground you can only get better so I would hope that if this game is any good, a sequel would add more charm to it. Though maybe I am too optimistic about that.
Either way, no one seems to be planning on making an other Jump Super Stars game, and I don't really care much for an other Nintendo Smash Bros so I don't have a whole lot of options for crazy, free for all fighters.
