A rip-off? Well perhaps it is too early to tell if it is an inferior product but a clone yes, as the game is far to similar to Smash Bros at the moment to be called anything else. It isn't like say Jump Super/Ultimate Stars which has some fundamental gameplay differences despite the general idea being similar. That said I can assume the other main reason why people are so sour about it may also have to do with the fact that Sony doesn't have much attachment to people as Nintendo does. Its characters aren't as "beloved" as Nintendo's, and thus makes this seem less impressive from the start.

So this game will have to do a lot to impress and get past that stigma, but don't expect it to. I felt Blur was a far better game than Mario Kart will ever be but quite often I hear people refer to it dismissively as "Mario Kart with licensed cars" and nothing more.

I'm not one of those people thankfully. What I enjoyed about Melee was that it allowed for the option of more substantially different styles of gameplay, which I felt Brawl didn't do well with. I don't play with items turned off, but somethings I like to have simple one on one stock match with friends as pure tests of skill and I felt that Brawl had a lot of oddities that helped get in the way of that. That and my favorite character was unusually lousy in that game.

Honestly, the Smash Bros styled fighting game is something I would have figured to have been copied far more than it really has. And on that note, I have no problem with this game being so similar because I wasn't satisfied with Brawl, and I would love to play a Smash Bros styled game developed by a team who has a different design vision and theory than Masashiro Sakurai. (Because the more I read on his feelings regarding competitive games, I realized I never want to play a future Smash Bros game with him involved)

That said Sony doesn't really have too many characters I am interested in, but then again it wouldn't be the first time I play a crossover with a small interest percentage when it comes to the character roster.

Dark Void.

It needs a sequel that goes all out with the concepts the first one laid out, both gameplay and story. Especially the crazy shit mentioned in the journals. (Like talking teleporting rocks, fucked up day/night cycles and "Letters Day eve" celebrations)

Streets of Rage Remake released officially so more people could bask in its glory.

So yeah vote with your wallet, but not on polls am I right?

But more importantly, has this oh so important and stinging poll ever made companies change in any significant way? And if this poll was meant to even remotely be taken serious why did the Consumerist even bother to humor the "entitled" masses of nerd and gamers.

Also I noticed Bank of America has been on that poll since 2007, would finally winning this dubious award really matter at this point? You'd figure they had gotten the hint by now, that is if they actually give a damn about this poll.

More of a sub-genre to racing but I'd love to see more games like Wave Race or Hydro Thunder.

Hydro Thunder Hurricane was awesome and I really hope they make an other sometime. Also 3D "collect-a-thon" platformers.

It is about 8-9 hours long (leaning more towards 9), with some scene/roster alterations (especially during the final moments) depending on how much trust you gain with your comrades. So that might add some replay to it.

It definitely is a game worth checking out, and while the quick look seemed to focus more on ironic enjoyment, the game goes past that with some actually enjoyable characters and story moments.

The Kinnikuman Muscle Grand Prix games are very good fighting games that stick to more traditional 3D fighter mechanics instead of gimmicks and cutscene triggers like in most anime fighters. And it helps that the source material is pretty awesome.

The wrestling games for the series are also pretty good.

Very impressive animation, it looks quite legit. I am a bit curious as to why you chose it to be based on F-Zero though.

I for one am glad it isn't "real". I am not going to settle for a portable version of F-Zero (With the exception of Climax, which is my second favorite in the series after X) after waiting for so long, especially on a machine I don't own or plan on buying.

After the direction the Dead Rising games have been taking and stuff like Rearmed 2 and Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, I'm going to keep my distance from Capcom for now. Thankfully none of the games they have announced so far have caught my interest, heck I think at this point the only thing that could make me drop my guard for a bit would be a sequel to Dark Void. (I loved that game, and I feel there is SO much they can do with it)
