About what I was expecting, low rent Smash Bros

After watching some of this, I think I prefer the smash bro's way of scoring points.

I think Jeff is totally right about, the percentage stuff being the good part of Smash Bro's, because this game looks really bad to me but, I love Smash Bro's.

Holy bad game batman!

I really wish Tomba would be included in the final roster. Dig deep Sony!

Edited by DarkbeatDK

I don't like it... It feels like the system isn't as flexible as Smash Bros with it's ability to knock you out of stages.

Someone as old as you and me, Jeff, will probably remember a time where FPS games were called "Doom clones"

The weird thing about this to me is still that its call Playstation All-Stars and it seems like half the characters are not even PS exclusive characters.

Yep. That's my biggest problem with this game. They stole everything but the most important thing. I would've been totally fine with a complete and total ripoff.

The mixed backgrounds are pretty a cool, but I imagine that gimmick gets stale real fast.

Me and you

And you and me

No matter how they tossed the dice

It had to be

The only one for me is you

And you for me

So happy together

No Pokeman No Dice

Could be good, I like the flavour and backgrounds but the systems don't look as fun as smash brothers

Posted by BluPotato

I find it odd that there is no onscreen point counter for each player during the match. Perhaps this will change in the final product.

I do want to like this game but the mechanics aren't too my liking. I really don't like the way you get kills.

Also, no falls is kind of lame, makes each stage feel more like a shoebox.

I guess I like the bombast hitting people so hard they fly off the screen and die lends.

I think I want this game to be way closer to Super Smash Bros. Like, almost exactly the same, except for the characters, levels, and items.

Yeah, the scoring system is really weird, and seems dumb on the surface.

Posted by two_socks

They should have dug deeper with characters. Damn shame.

Edited by Deathpooky

As someone who played a ton of Smash Brothers back in the day, this looks terrible. They would have been better off just copying Smash Brothers wholesale because the scoring system just seems random and not fun at all. The strange stage combinations look cool, but that's just about it.

What is wrong with PaRappa's voice?... What is wrong with the way he looks?

Posted by Moncole

THis wiill probably be like Homefront.

Trying to copy a popular game

made by new devs

lots of hype

Posted by BlackLagoon

So the peanut gallery is going from slamming the game because it's "obviously a complete rip-off" of Smash Brothers, to slamming the game for it not being identical enough to Smash Brothers... internets, sigh.

Posted by RoyCampbell

I sure hope they play some Sir Dan.

Posted by Hyperfludd

I've been playing since yesterday, and yeah it's pretty much smash brothers. It's fun though, so I'm glad they're taking the obvious bullet and doing what they can. The system could use a little tweaks, and the beta could definitely use more music (better music). As someone who played pretty much around 400 hours of brawl, the polish that game has over this one is overwhelming, but that would be unfair since this is a beta.

Posted by ShadowConqueror

Changing background are cool, but this game seems bad.

Posted by Majkiboy

Stages seem so static compared to Smash. And that is not a good thing!

Posted by Carousel

Not so sure about this anymore.

Posted by Nasar7

Wow such a weak attempt. Looks more alpha than beta, I really hope this isn't feature complete. No ring outs suck, the scoring system sucks, the menus look terrible. Does getting hit really have no effect at all? What about the controls? Are there normal/special attacks in every direction, rolls, sidesteps, smash attacks...? I was rooting for this game since I love smash bros. but this looks bad.

Onimusha Blade Warriors up in this.

Is the Pokemon franchise legally tied to Nintendo? I always thought it was its own entity.
Posted by Fearbeard

As someone who has no interest in Smash Brothers, this actually looks like it could be fun. Still not sure how I like all the systems, but the inclusion of online makes it much more accessible to me then the couch co-op of Smash Brothers.

Posted by zombie2011

This looks boring! Compared to SSB where you have so much shit going on all the time with power-ups and pokemon and just the insane stuff.

I think the whole thing kinda feels off in that regard because the top Playstation games were almost all Gran Turismo, Final Fantasy, and Grand Theft Auto.  Kratos and Nathan Drake are really the only guys that will come off as a Playstation "Star", everything else is kind of Sony's B-List.  A Nissan Skyline GT-R should totally be a playable character.
Posted by personz

This actually looks like... it wont be that good. I don't like the idea of NEEDING to use supers to kill at all.

Is Hulk Hogan in charge of video descriptions now?

Put in the car from DAYTONAAAAAAAA!!!!

Posted by SMTDante89

I think what interest I had in this game is gone, but I'll wait until I can play the beta later in the fall and make a final decision then.

Posted by Zanetsu

I actually like what they're doing with the system. The not showing of score is because they don't want someone in the lead to just run away until the match ends (at least I believe they said that at some point). I'd rather have this instead of just ring-outs all over again. However, I don't really care for timed modes at all, but I'm sure they'll include some sort of stock-equivalent in the final product.

As someone who has never owned a modern Nintendo console, I am stoked about this game, wanted to try out Smash Brothers for the longest time

Spyro, Sly, Ratchet and Clank, Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, Sackboy are pretty big playstation stars to me, characters I instantly associate with the platform, and whilst some aren't exclusive to it anymore, doesn't change it for me. Sure, it's not the lineup offered in Smash Bro's, but there are quite a few to pull from anyway.

Nintendo owns the majority of Pokemon.

Releasing a Vita version is just a waste of money. It's doing horribly in Japan and sold less than 50k in US last month.

Posted by SlightConfuse

Looks like a bad version of n64 smash bros

Posted by PAPI_D_187

If only there was a website that could explain the super moves to Jeff and Vinny. Oh well, I'm pretty sure someone will think of it one day.

This looks terribly forced and contrived, I dont think even Seth can save this one

This should be funny.
