Edit: Apparently MAJ is working on it too. High hopes.

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.


#3

This looks more similar to Smash than I imagined. Pretty hype for this.


#4

Looks fun so far…


#5

lol this looks like shit.


#6

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.


#7

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


#8

Wait, Radec as the Killzone 2 villain?

Autobuy. I didn’t even know Sony acknowledged he existed


#9

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.


#10

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?


#11

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

They won’t switch over to this


#12

I’m thinking the cats will make it in with Cole.

Also, LBP and Jak better represent. Is Crash considered a PS character even though he went cross platform?


#13

Hopefully they keep their SFxT moves.


#14

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

Shucks, it happened again.


#15

Sony should put Megaman in this game just to mindfuck everyone.


#16

I don’t see why Sony won’t put this on the Vita as well with cross-platform support…


#17

Only buying if they get Crash Badicoot in.


#18

No Jak = no buys

Some Smash fans try to get in on games that play similar to it. TMNT: Smash-up and Cartoon Network game being examples


#19

looks fun. i wonder how it would play on an arcade stick tho


#20

Good point.

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.
