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 would love for someone to re-release both Illbleed and Blue Stinger, maybe in a HD "Double Feature" pack of sorts.

Honestly I am just excited to hear the Director's Cut is still something in the works. It was one of the few things I would look forward to for either this or next year.

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.

Lego Racers.

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).

You Motherfacker!

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.

2) Isn't "mature and gritty" exactly the wrong direction to take that franchise? If they have to make another one, wouldn't it be more interesting to take it in the opposite direction and make the Saints Row 3 of military-inspired shooters?

I sort of agree with this thought. I walked into this series hoping for something a bit more strange and stylished than the average serious military shooter, what with the masked protagonist designs. The first game gave me something like that with those weird powered up modes (the super speed and super armor) but that was sadly removed in the sequel.

Personally I wouldn't like something quite as silly as Saints Row The Third, but definitely crazy.

I'll go on the record and say I may be one of the few who actually likes these games (along with the Kane and Lynch games), but I can certainly understand the majority's disinterest in it. I had actually enjoyed the story of the first one, but while the sequel played a little better everything else about it was just ho-hum, especially the story. Eh, I dunno.

Still hoping that Dart from Legend of Dragoon makes it in. I think it would add some nice "old-school" charm, and I'd love to throw down to its music. (or a remix of it) And as mentioned, they really gotta put more "POW" into those sound effects.

That Uncharted level though, I dunno. It looks kind of cool but it isn't the first location I'd think of when talking about Uncharted, or even 3 specifically. Plus if the scoring system was more like Smash Bros. I would have found it more appealing.

These rumored leaks are pretty interesting though.

Oh hey I love Dark Void I...wait thats not what this topic is about.

But seriously, the footage in that video looks absolutely unreal. Neat stuff.
