    "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."

    Seems like it wouldn't be a problem in one vs one but would be a potential problem in multiplayer. Sounds like zoning won't be a viable tactic, especially in multiplayer. Really hoping level 3 supers are not unblockable. I'm not particularly excited about stages that damage characters, especially if they can literally kill them, hoping this is either an option you can turn off, or is very predictable. Very excited about this game, or should I say cautiously optimistic, that could really be legendary.

    Roster of 25 + DLC characters seems practical and I would be satisfied with that number.

    Still, it doesn't matter.

    It's gonna boil down to "Get a bar before anyone else, then use it on the person closest to getting theirs".

    Part of what makes Smash so fun is that you can score KOs (or be KOed) at any time. With this one, you know when someone's able to do you in, and means you can avoid them.

    Doesn't mean that there won't be tactics to beat that. The Lv1 and Lv2 attacks we saw were quick attacks - whose to say those attacks are unblockable? And even if they are, what if there's some wavedash-type movement (Sly seemed to have this ability in his trailer) that would allow those attacks to whiff?

    Raw supers could be just as reckless in this game as they are in practically any other fighting game.

    Yeah, we don't want to jump the gun too early or anything, I mean as far as we know, we can KO characters without using meter, right?

    There's no lifebars, but I suppose it could still be possible - using stage hazards and such.

    Or perhaps items, or who knows, I really am not crazy about the idea of needing meter to kill, however perhaps you can combo and gain enough meter to build a super and then knockout with it.

    I have a feeling you can knockout without supers, because there are level 1, 2, and 3 supers, which means they probably don't all KO, and if they don't all KO, there has to be a purpose for them (provided they aren't power up supers). I don't know, it's 4AM, I hope this is making sense.

    Yep it feels more like Battle Stadium DON than Smash Brothers.
    And that's alright, as DON is a pretty fun game.

    A Smash Bros clone developed by fighting game enthusiasts ? Now that is something I'm genuinely curious about ! I wonder how this game is going to fare as a competitive fighter, because honestly, it's something Smash Bros will never be again, as long as Sakurai stays in charge of the franchise.

    Behold a game that is superior in this subgenre of fighting. So superior it can be considered a fighter when you factor in the 1v1 cage match mode with full life bars!

    ANARCHY REIGNS developed by the new Capcom, Platinum Games! Former Okami devs from Capcom I might add!
    11 Minute gameplay footage:


    Many modes, here are a few! 0:36 cage match mode aka 1v1 fighter.


    16 characters I think? Maybe more in the future!



    Bayonetta is in the game!


    Looks like a much more technical game but at the same time they have brainless modes for fun as well. No disrespect to this new Sony game but AR needs the press. You will LOVE THIS GAME, LOVE THIS GAME, LOVE THIS GAME.

    Evo 2013?

    Example of juggles, looks like a training mode.

    Dude, you need to spoiler tag all those vids like immediately. That's way OD - not to mention completely off-topic.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward PS All-Stars. Looks like a lot of fun. Got a little hype when I saw Fat Princess. :woot:

    Apparently there was mention that third-party characters could/would appear also - so here's my wishlist:

    Drake, Nathan Hale (R1, R2), Cole (inFamous), Nariko (Heavenly Sword), Captain Qwark, Patapon Warrior, The Origami Killer (Heavy Rain), Snake, Lightning, Cloud, Glenn (Chrono Cross), Hayden Tenno (Dark Sector), Seifer (FF8), Sackboy, Tidus

    I am really hoping the game does well. This studio has cranked out Bayonetta and Vanquish but they ended up in top 5 when it comes to greatest games you have never played. AR is extremely close to a fighter but maybe belongs in this subgenre of Smash and Powerstone?

    Anyway on topic, Yakuza is a Sony exclusive franchise but developed by Sega. It would be nice if Kazuma Kiryu ended up being in the game. Sega licensed VF characters to DOA and Sonic to Smash so I don't see why Kazuma couldn't make it in. I think it is a bit of a stretch though....

    Mind as well play a SF game with 4 SF chars.

    It looks fun so far and they have 2 characters I really wanted from the start anyway.

    I think it's reasonable to expect 1 Tekken character considering how long it was a PS exclusive.

    I want someone from the Arc the Lad games. If I had to choose it would be Bebedora.

    Nathan, Cole, and Ratchet are guaranteed to be in this. I'd be surprised if Jak wasn't in either.

    If the items function even remotely like the items in Smash (i.e. they appear in random places at random times), then they won't be competitively viable. =/

    There does seem to be more ways to KO opponents other than using meter, though.

    Too bad SONY/it's studio was probably too stupid to even think about leveraging the obscure fact that the PS3 can support more than 4-players.

    I can't imagine this being any good. This is Japanese developer territory, imo. American developers don't seem to have the cultural quirk necessary to create something as fantastic (in the visionary sense) as Smash Bros. Also, Omar keeps harping about how he and his team are from a "fighting game background" - who cares? Ignoring the vagueness of the stated merit - who are you getting to test your game? Who are you listening to for feed back? That's what matters.

    Obviously, that's an appeal to people like us. I don't see the precision in controls (for one) that essentially makes a game like Melee as spectacular as it is.

    While all you folks are wishing for characters, I think it'd probably be most rational the consider that they'll likely limit it to 2-3 companies altogether. It's very unlikely they want too many hands in the pot.

    Activision is a must. They own Spyro and Crash. Also, Call of Duty.

    After them, Square Enix. Not only does Square Enix have Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, they also have Eidos now - which means Tomb Raider, Legacy of Kain, Deus Ex, Hitman: Codename 47, Fear Effect and many other PlayStation icons.

    Then, Konami. Metal Gear Solid, OBVIOUSLY, but also Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Silent Hill, Zone of the Enders, Contra, Frogger... also, Konami now owns Hudson Soft, which means Bomberman, Bonk, Bloody Roar and Adventure Island might be possibilities.
