    Seems like this will be a way, way, way, way, way better version of Brawl. Just don't tell Nintendo fanboys. They're still in deni -- *trip*

    Sorry. Can't finish my thought now.

    Haha good one.

    Brawl is a very fun game, but a big part of the sell for me is playing characters from games I liked when I was younger.

    Most of the PS3 characters / games, I have 0 experience with. So as long as they ship Solid Snake over (I did play MGS4) I should be alright.

    I'd like to see how the competitive experience of Ed and MAJ help shape the game.

    Wait wait wait. I'd just like to offer a thought.

    A game doesn't have smash brothers gameplay if it doesn't have the blowback and off-screen KO's and shit. You bring health bars starting from 100% to 0 into a game and no blowback, it's not smash brothers.

    With that said, that's a good thing. I'd rather have a new 4 player chaos and potentially-good-1v1-fighting game over a Brawl/Melee clone anyday.

    Hey, will Spyro be in this game? Is he a playstation character? If so oohohhhhhhhhh mannnnnn

    EDIT: My bad, I watched more of the trailer, it has blowback. But no offscreen KO's. I just wonder how blowback is calculated then.

    Maybe you can still get offscreen KO'd. Who knows.

    They really gave Radec Snake's final smash haha. Question is will this be the fighter for smash fans who were not satisfied with brawl?

    Smash fans like Smash because of the Nintendo characters, not because of the game system

    They won't switch over to this

    I'm a Smash fan, and I'm getting this. That being said, I'm not a die-hard, but I do enjoy the series occassionally. I'm really looking forward to this, I think it might give Smash a run for its mon— *trips*

    During the interview it was said that there would be 3rd party characters, so both Crash & Spyro might be in if Activision allows Sony to use them again.

    I've a feeling that we might see Capcom characters.

    It doesn't really play anything like Smash though. There's no build up to higher percentages into being knocked off. It looks like it's a different thing to look into. Kinda hyped for it actually.

    It has the same kinds of controls so it plays at its core like Smash. Doesn't matter if it has a life bar or not.

    No I see the similarities but the objective is different. You don't get hit higher at higher percentages. You just die when you're out of health. Kinda like that lame "stamina" special mode.

    That functioned like a traditional fighting game. This Playstation thing seems to be trying to mesh the two styles more fluidly.

    I think because he's a nobody at this point outside of nostalgia he should be really easy to bring back so there's no excuse. Same with Spyro really, but I guess it depends if they feel they're worth it. If Sony has the choice of them or more popular characters they might be out of luck.

    He's the game's secret boss, who can only be fought by fulfilling the same conditions needed to fight Gouki in ST

    Who's to say that they don't also like Sony characters, though?

    I'm buying this not only because of the system, but because Sly and Parappa are in it. ^_^

    The only way to kill characters are with supers.

    Destructiod has an article about the game-
    http://www.destructoid.com/preview-playstation-all-stars-battle-royale-226561.phtml
    - The team consists of members with extensive backgrounds in fighting and combat titles

    - Either the left analog stick or the d-pad controls movement of your character.

    - The right stick will let you perform throws, with different ones assigned to each direction.

    - The X button jumps, and the other three face buttons are assigned to different attacks.

    - L1 blocks and R1 picks up items.

    - R2, executes a super move. While fighting, you'll build up a meter that lets you perform a super move that knocks out characters.

    - Also, some attacks knock AP (action points) out of opponents, letting others pick them up to fill up these meters. There are three levels of supers, each one stronger than the last, and each requiring another filling of this meter. If you can manage to land hits and survive long enough, a level three super can knock out all other players, earning you points.

    - Victory goes to the player with the highest number of KOs; knocking out a character adds to your score while being knocked out subtracts from it.

    - So, there's nothing in the way of health bars here, as health doesn't really matter in the long run.

    - Most of the matches I played were frantic free-for-alls that had us hitting each other in any way possible in an effort to get those meters filled up.

    - get excited about the control, because it's outstanding. SuperBot really nailed it. It's fast, super-responsive, and never gets in the way of the crazy action. The in-air stuff is not floaty at all; jumps do what you need them to, when you need them to. I never had a problem blocking, platforming or recovering.

    Neat. It really seems like they got the right team for this. What I really like is the game seems to have a slightly higher emphasis on competitive play compared to Smash.

    This is one of the few games I'd kill to work on.
