How much more retarded will the story get I wonder?

It looked like it was going to be passable in the game where they basically "rebooted" the series, trim away at all the cancerous growths in the plot that had accumulated after so many games (which seems like a valid plan) but then in about the final quarter of the game it took a dive into total MK retardation.

Fatalities are kind of boring me now after all these years, also the the X-ray attacks. It might be the original gimmick the series had going for it but the massive gore for the sake of gore and brutality of being explicitly stabbed through the eyeballs and being unaffected the rest of the match just hold little appeal anymore

Him being a gigantic whiney faggot aside he does make some good points. Japanese/ Nintendo devs (for the most part) tend to be extremely headstrong and unwilling to really listen to people. That said, Apparently at the best Buy events and E3, people have been taking notes, so maybe Nintendo's finally starting to get it.

Also; the game is 4 months away from launching. That's barely enough time to do anything of substance before submitting the final build.

I don't get him being Whiny. He sounded perfectly composed in his criticism of the game.

And I mean really "It's not well balanced it's going to be like Brawl" isn't something we should be mindbogglingly blown about. It's not like he's saying the game's got horrible game-crashing bugs or has lied about its roster or anything.

It's Smash! and it sounds like he's saying it has the problems associated with Smash. Nintendo aren't some infallible gods who're going to constantly correct their mistakes.

They fucked up a bit with Brawl in terms of competitive play and they're not succeeding with U either. Accept that and move on. Or just don't buy smash if you're THAT invested in it being super good at competitive play.

The thought of Amazon buying Capcom never crossed my mind. I think that may be too much for Amazon, but I never thought they would buy a game developer like Double Helix just to support Amazon Fire TV. The unannounced PS4 game by Ono signaling the Street Fighter series being exclusive to Sony is jumping the gun, but the thought of Sony and Nintendo sharing Capcom properties isn't so bad. Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, and Resident Evil goes to PlayStation, while Mega Man goes to Nintendo. Heck, the possibility of Microsoft buying the Dead Rising series is strong too.

I don't know how I would feel if Disney bought Capcom. So tired of Disney buying everything, but it would give us more Capcom vs. Marvel games and Disney cartoon games like DuckTales. It would also give them them more boy-driven franchise they desperately crave. However, I don't know how much Disney values the video game market. They seem content with only pushing the Disney Infinity line.

So, I bought PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale off of PSN for $5. The PS3 version was on sale, but it's a cross-buy title, so I played it on my Vita. After playing for a bit, I can see why this game never took off. On all technical levels, it's adequate. Graphics are good; characters controls well. . . and so on. But in regards to passion, the game is soulless. It honestly does feel like a cheap imitation of Super Smash Bros. However, where Super Smash Bros. succeeds in being a celebration of Nintendo and the classic age of video games, All Stars fails to explore any depth found in Sony's gaming library.

There were some cute moments, like the opening with all the PS characters fighting each other, or the Little Sister's interactions with Sackboy in the story campaign I played, but these moments are few. For the most part, the representation of the franchises owned or made famous by Sony are hollow. And speaking of the game's fighting roster, I don't know who decided to fill it up with third-party characters that had little to do with PlayStation. Big Daddy, DmC's Donte, and MGR's Raided have no place in this game. Okay, I understand Crash Bandicoot and Spyro are had to acquire, but surely there must have been better alternatives than those. In fact, there were.

http://www.vg247.com/2013/07/01/ps-all-stars-battle-royale-twitter-campaign-calls-for-abes-odysee-legend-of-dragoon-dlc/

Actually, to go back to All Stars' structure, the game never captures the frantic atmosphere of Smash Bros. It tries with hectic stages, randomly dropped items, and four-player fights, but executes them poorly. Two player battle came off more intense than four-player mode, which made me wish All Stars tried to be more like a regular fighter, than aping Smash Bros. I don't even know how the life meter works. I died and killed others, but I have no idea what triggered it.

You could blame the poor sales of All Stars on Sony overestimating the popularity of their characters--and there may be some truth to that--but I think for a company that's been involved with gaming since 1994, there's a rich history to explore. It's just a pity All Stars makes no attempt to do just that.

I decided to post this here and not the PS General because I wanted more of a opinion on All Stars' fighting structure. Sackboy's third special attacks seems too powerful. Any major differences with the game since Sony Santa Monica took over?

>I don't even know how the life meter works. I died and killed others, but I have no idea what triggered it.

The biggest reason the game fails to capture the chaos of Smash Bros. is the same thing that sets it apart from Smash Bros.: The way KOs are scored. Players damage each other to score AP orbs to build meter. Building enough meter allows the player to one of three levels of super moves, which are the only way to score KOS. In SuperBot's attempt to set the game apart from Smash Bros., it ends up worse. If your super attack misses, all that buildup of meter was for nothing. I think the game would have been better off aping Power Stone instead of Smash Bros.

As for Abe and Dart not appearing on the roster, development on them was canned specifically due to poor sales of previous DLC. I don't recall anyone clamoring or even wanting for Isaac Clarke and Zeus to join the roster.

As yes All-Stars, the game that touts "It's got combos!", but the combos don't really even do anything. Also the characters blend into the backgrounds which Nintendo somehow manages to avoid for most Smash characters and stages.

I think most Smash stages have a background that is primarily a certain color, though that color may change on some stages (battlefield going from day to night, for example). From what I remember in All Stars a lot of the stages were cluttered when it came to colors and foreground/background detail, though I could be wrong since it's been a long time. Coloring a stage like Smash does helps characters 'pop' against the backdrop. In addition, most Smash stages are easy on the eyes, which makes following characters a lot easier.

And by easy on the eyes I don't just mean that they're pretty. Halberd was a stage from Brawl that wasn't nice to look at imo because everything being some muddy shade of red puts a bit of strain on the eyes. In contrast there are lots of stages that are different shades of blue, which are easy to look at. I have the feeling All Stars doesn't really take this into consideration, but like I said it's been a while, so someone more well versed in the game can weigh in on if that's true or not.

Ok, so we know that characters are getting two variations of each of their special move, allowing you to pick from 12 different attacks in special mode and that you can "equip" items to change attributes such as speed and damage of your moves in special modes.

We also know that Paulina or whatever that Kid Icarus character is spelled like will be getting 12 unique moves to pick from, as will each of the Mii Fighter styles...

However someone was scanning the treehouse events and it looks like not only do you have to unlock these special move variations seemingly at random, but that things might be getting rather interesting for what moves we'll see where. Lets take a quick look:

Here's where it starts to get interesting.

I know things are still in Gama or whatever it is just before you launch the game so things can change, but take a look at this.

It was inevitable that Fox would get a charged version of his blaster, however make a note that this move takes the place of his Up B special "Fire Fox". Rather than replacing his Neutral B with the Charged Blaster, he replaces his directional recovery move allowing him to utilize two ranged attacks by sacrificing his recovery. This sort of stuff can and WILL drastically change how characters play and function in this mode. It's less "Oh I want Mario to have faster fireballs" and far more in depth with critical decisions having to be made.
With any luck, he'll be able to store this shot like Samus or Lucario.

Lastly we have Kirby. Like Fox Kirby can replace one of his other moves for a variation on a move assigned to a different input, effectively allowing him to have two of the same style of attack.

This confirms that this type of situation isn't unique to Fox and that we can expect to see things like this on multiple characters. How many, there's no way of knowing.

Lastly, take a look at the wording. "Hammer Bash". Kirby's Side B is his mallet, however a move with a name like this being assigned to Down B makes me thing we might actually see some custom animations with this custom moves; however that is simply baseless speculation.


And that's all for now!

It definitely seems that way.

Which hey, good for them. It may be a bit of clean up from things they've done in the past, but it shouldn't be entirely dismissed as just that.

The issue of "Git Gud" is a fascinating one to me.

Cause it's gotten to a point where the question becomes: when is a game badly designed and when is a game just testing you?

There are plenty of old school games that're hard. Hell they're fucking hard! Hard as fossilized dung. But we don't just appreciate them for that difficulty, in fact in some instances the difficulty is totally arbitrarily high. Nobody says "git gud" when you play Battle Toads even though in terms of fairness it's about on the same league as say Dark Souls.

And in Wonderful 101 there are missions that require you to perform random new mechanics and playstyles on the fly and getting them 100% perfect is a fucking nightmare because of this. But does that make that a bad game or those particular elements flawed? Well...

Basically the way I see it is this: if a game wants you to Git Gud it should make the process of Gittin' Gud as intuitive and quick as possible. Wonderful 101 I'd argue is WAY BETTER at letting you Git Gud than Bayonetta because you can't retry missions or fights in Bayonetta, you literally need to quit the game then hit continue to do so and it sucks. Gittin' Gud is already meant to be a trial and error process and learning enemy patterns so making the process of learning and being exposed to those patterns more tedious and time consuming is an awful stance to take because you're already making things difficult, making things TEDIOUS on top of that is just going to shoot you in the foot.

Basically here's what I think: It's not the fact that old games were HARD that people hate, but that they started you back at the start of the level and told you "do it all over again". That feeling that you basically lost all of your lives and are kicked back to the start screen with no level select is much MUCH worse than simply having enemies with aggressive or difficult patterns.

Aside from the feet connector joints I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. There's a ton of cool stuff they can do with her they didn't get to explore with Fortune. Keep in mind that while the budget to make her is limited and she's coming last, she's not going to be just a reskin of Fortune and will have some unique moves; most likely similar to Fukua (but to the Nth degree) as to how she'll be handled.

Toon Link at least has the benefit of functioning a little differently with his quicker floater movement and less powerful attacks.

Lucina they just straight up admitted to being a 98% copy paste job, the only discernible difference is that "tipping" is gone from her smash attacks plus she's like two inches shorter.
If the team had spent a few extra hours on her to do something like have her fully charged Dolphin Slash stun or give her an extra rep on her sword dance, or make her counter send enemies up, she could have actually played differently than a brainless Marth.

The kicker is that I bet you all dollars to doughnuts that she has the exact same custom moves as Marth too so she's not even good "friends only" fodder.

If you watch the reveal trailer, the little screen time she has, you can see that her normals are also the same. She appears to be, as of now, exactly the same character as Marth but without tipping.

Roy played vastly different than Marth in melee. Roy was slower, fell faster, did more damage, and his N.B charged for longer and a fully charged one damaged him. It was a Ken/ Ryu situation.

Lucina and Marth however is a Ryu AE and Ryu AE: 2012 level of difference.

Nope:
"As said in the panel, they made several versions of Robo to check how much it would cost to animate her.
G is the desired design while C and E are quicker and thus cheaper variants. After they tested out altering some of Fortune's sprites LZ decided it actually didn't cost that much more to go with the more complex G, so that'll be design they're running with."

Little disappointed they didn't do something with the pouches though.

Additional information is that she'll have a Detonation Mode like Robo-Kai:
>Mike Z: "Detonation mode is the thing that Robo-Kai has where he pushes his little plunger and gets a countdown above his head for 10 seconds, during which he's sped up and automatically generates meter. At the end of that ten seconds he explodes, doing crazy damage to his opponent and decent damage to himself, losing all of his remaining meter afterwards. And I love it, and it's incredibly fun, AND-"


Also worthy of note is that she was not included in the DLC pack IndieGogo backers got with their Skullgirls keys.
She may end up being free, or she may end up being paid DLC if L0 runs out of money since she was only ever a road bump in the campaign and their series of unfortunate events most likely drained a lot of funds. (this is all speculation)

Eliza got the DIO color after all

Tournament mode now has a PS Home button lockout mid match.

Double Snaps now have a Hype Anime Action Time Music thing

Killing with a super now has an effect like killing someone with a super in Jojo HFTF

Linux guy is now PS4 guy (Linux still happening, but PS4 first since people are getting paid for it)

Beowulf reportedly has had his animations started on

Most of her normals are useless, her gimmick amounts to nothing but a situational combo extender, and her gameplan, at least from what I've played of her and have seen feels pretty bland and l almost want to say kind of close to Filias.

She could have been so much more, but right now she's just sort of there. What should have happened is that Eliza just uses the parasute for a few attacks, but it's never out on its own (because it is beyond shitty) or they should have dropped some of Elizas specials and gave them to the parasite along with slowing Elizas movement down a bit and increasing the parasite. This could have forced players to switch between the two and make tough calls when in combos. Right now there is little to no reason to burn meter with your parasite unless you're using the Blockbuster.

Looks like something out of Jet Set Radio to me. Anarchist skater/free-running kinda thing.

I really like Vega's oufit. Simple yet stylish, and the added glove on his non-clawed hand looks awesome. Really wondering what the other colors will be.

That doesn't sound like a good fit for Makoto, but it's awesome.

Also the Vega costume looks cool too. Like if he didn't have the mask and claw he'd look like he was going yachting or something.

2 questions.

1. Even though Street Fighter IV is "done" for the foreseeable future, would you like to have 6 more characters to bump up to roster to a nice round 50?

2. Would anyone terribly mind if I made a big long dumb post about the new costumes?

1.) No. Let Ultra SFIV be the end. SFV should go in the direction SFIII did: give us a whole bunch of new characters and bring back a handful of SFII/III/IV characters.

2.) I say go right ahead.

Alright. I didn't hate all of them but some of them were a bit awful. I would have liked to see the Udon sketches of these to see what they were going for.

Abel:Kinda looks like a JoJo character. I like it.
Adon:He's got that Persian nightclub guy thing going for him. They should have did something with the hair though.
Akuma:I don't think Akuma would wear Bermuda shorts and a tank top but the rope fists work.
Balrog:It works but he needs better colors. Also could have donr without the flowers.
Blanka:Kinda boring but not offensive. It works.
C.Viper:No idea what the fuck they were going for here. Best I could guess is a gliding suit or something. Either way the colors clash too much. Hair's fine though.
Cammy:Perfect
Chun Li:I don't think Chun Li is a cluber girl. It's neat but doesn't really suit her.
Cody:Construction worker/Community Service Cody is fine. Pants legs need to be the same length though.
Dan:Golf Dan is best Dan
Decapre:This was not very thought out and seems really lame. They should have ditched the high tech stuff or at the very least did something better with the shoes.
Dhalsim:It's the turban. They should get rid of the turban. Maybe longer sleeves.
DeeJay:This is an embarrassment. His first two were fine. This is horrible.
Dudley:Yuppie Dudley is fine. I have no issue with it.
E.Honda:They kinda just gave up with him didn't they?
Elena:It looks more like a neglige than a sundress or maybe it's something to wear over her bikini. Loos the arm and leg guards and take two layers off the necklace and it 's fine.
El Fuerte:It's fairly in offensive. Pretty basic. It works.
Evil Ryu:Maybe it's just a bad angle but the shoulder things aren't working.
Fei Long:I guess the excuse is he's making a movie or something. Either way it's fine. The suit is still better.
Gen:I like the hat but he needs a shirt.
Gouken:King of the fucking Sea. Doesn't make a lick of sense. Fucking hilarious.
Guile: Nice D.Dark reference.
Guy:The hoodie is fine. The knee-braces aren't. Should have just wore pants or shorts.
Hakan:Surfing Hakan? That's fine I guess.
Hugo:Pretty cool casual look. The gloves are a bit much though.
Ibuki:To be fair that's a terrible shot of her. That being said it still doesn't excuse what they put on her head. It's too distracting.
Juri:This is a neat concept. I don't like the head band though.
Ken:Probably would have been better with longer pants. It's fine overall.
M.Bison:I don't know what they were going for with this one. Yakuza boss or something? It's not terrible.
Makoto:Kick ass. I have no idea why she's wearing it though.
Oni:Kinda lazy but get's the job done. Probably could have lost the shoulder pad.
Poison:Classy.
Rolento:More like Brolento. I like it.
Rose:You know I would buy her wearing some sort of fancy swimsuit but it's the shoes that ruin it. She hasn't had a great run of costumes.
Rufus:They wanted scuba Rufus they got scuba Rufus. I can't complain.
Ryu:He looks like Ken dressed him. It works but the sunglasses are a bit much.
Sagat:The hat should be solid color. Otherwise it's pretty cool. Reminds me of C.Jack.
Sakura:Nice if a bit boring. Don't think she had a terrible one yet.
Seth:I don't hate it. Just wasn't expecting it.
T.Hawk:3 for 3 in garbage costumes. The could have salvaged it if they had gave him long pants and got rid of the face paint.
Vega:Nice. If he didn't have the mask and claws he'd look normal.
Yang:Not terrible. Probably could have lost the gloves.
Yun:The jacket and pants did not have the be the same color or at the very least nor that shade or orange. Let's hope he has better color choices.
Zangief:He looks like the hazmat guys from Monsters Inc. I love it.

Pretty sure Origins is still on sale on PS3 and 360. Could be wrong. I do remember they pulled MvC2 as well as MvC3's DLC... which was then banned due to its now limited access which torpedoed my Rocket/Shuma/Jill team
