Title: Sony's Smash Bros.

Are you guys ready for a fighting game with Drake, Kratos, Parappa, Sweet Tooth and other sony characters?

I have to say that I'm kind of skeptical about how well this will work.  The Sony characters just don't seem well-suited for this sort of thing.  I mean, Nathan Drake vs. Kratos in a fighting game?  One of them hangs off of ledges and says 'oh crap' while the other murders gods.

Not to mention that they certainly lack the universal recognition that Nintendo characters seem to enjoy.

Really? How is it any different from bringing nintendo characters into a fighting game? Did Princess Peach or the ice climbers strike you as good characters for a fighting game? Kratos fit like a glove into mortal kombat and Cole is looking just as good in SFxT, it works if people know what they're doing. It obviously wont be as cartoony as Smash Bros, what they have in common is mixing lots of characters from different games.
"Hanging from ledges"... lol, I suspect he will be punching and kicking other characters because that's what you do in a fighting game but what do I know.

Smash Bros. works because it's cartoony.  You can take a lot of liberties in a light-hearted cartoon style.  This game doesn't appear to be cartoony from the limted assets we have seen (which is probably a good thing for the characters in question), but if you try to have more realistic characters it's hard to take the same sort of liberties in balancing them.

And Kratos worked in Mortal Kombat because Mortal Kombat is already filled with violent over-the-top psychos.  He fit right in.

Eh, I think this is a lot more common than you think.  I just fought Phoenix Wright - a guy who yells "Objection!" against Iron Man in UMvC3.  It'll work as long as it's not supposed to be "realistic", which I'm sure it won't be.

Calling it "Sony's Smash Bros" is sure to doom it already. Much like any time someone has tried to launch a "Zelda killer" or "Final Fantasy killer".

In fact Sony has barely said anything about it at all.  It's pretty much all speculation at this point.

So it's real and official (http://ps3.ign.com/articles/122/1223840p1.html).  And it has the terrible name, "PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale".

OK, rereading this old thread I was clearly very down on this game.  And now that there's some video out there it looks even more like a carbon-copy of Smash Bros. than I feared.  Clearly it isn't winning any originality points.  But at least all the game journalists who have played it are claiming that it's pretty fun.  So it's a rip-off, but perhaps not a shitty rip-off.

I don't know what to think.
Title: Re: Sony's Smash Bros.
Post by: Ashton on April 27, 2012, 03:40:50 PM
Urgh, I still don't think Sony has enough memorable characters to pull this off. It'd be like if EA made a similar game.

(http://art.penny-arcade.com/photos/215497914_Q4CSY-L-2.jpg)

Plus Smash Bros. clones have never (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DreamMix_TV_World_Fighters) really (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jump_Ultimate_Stars) went (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onimusha_Blade_Warriors) that (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viewtiful_Joe:_Red_Hot_Rumble) well (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TMNT:_Smash_Up). I hope I'm wrong but I have some worries about this game.

http://www.siliconera.com/2012/04/27/how-playstation-all-stars-battle-royale-is-different-from-super-smash-bros/

So apparently it's Super Smash Bros. but instead of kicking people off the stage, throwing people off the stage, being a douche and holding the edge of the stage while dooming the other guy to fall off the stage, environmental hazards tossing people off the stage, and so on you only get to use final smashes to down an opponent.

Nice Sony. Very nice. Next you're going to be telling us that all stages will be like Final Destination, instead of just one or two.
Title: Re: Sony's Smash Bros.
Post by: Andrew on April 27, 2012, 06:58:32 PM
This makes me laugh. The reason Smash Bros work is because it uses (mostly) characters that have been adored by a wide range of gamers for two decades. Sony's version features a couple of memorable characters from the last 5 years followed by (what I've seen so far) a roster of crap.

Keep in mind you're saying this while being a writer for an RPG forum, featuring a Nintendo character as your avatar, and writing for quite a few J-games.

Yeah this. While some of the characters they introduced were kinda lame (That dude from Killzone? Really?), they still have way more to announce, and I'm sure there are plenty of characters that people have a fondness for. Sly Cooper is already in there, so throw in Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, and Kevin Butler and I for one will be sold. ;P

With that said, I was always under the impression the Smash Bros. did well because it was a good game that people enjoyed...

It also helped that you have A) characters people are familiar with, B) a large and diverse enough pool of resources to borrow from, and C) characters that people aren't so familiar with that open up new aspects of the company that people generally weren't aware of before.

If Sony could bring something obscure to the table rather than just their latest and greatest like a Legacy of Kain or Legend of Dragoon character or two it'd help tremendously in diversifying the roster.
Title: Re: Sony's Smash Bros.
Post by: Kevadu on April 28, 2012, 07:26:51 PM
Sony actually has quite a few IPs to draw on, but I think their biggest problem is that none of them have the same nostalgia and familiarity as Nintendo's characters.  Part of the problem is that Sony just hasn't been in the business as long, but also they were not initially focused on building persistent franchises and brands (something I think they're trying to change).  I was thinking about what properties they're likely to include and was kind of shocked by how many of them were only from this console generation.  A lot of others didn't start until the PS2.  Here's a list of properties I would be surprised if they weren't in the game (not counting what has already been announced):
Infamous
Jak and Daxter (actually I would almost put this as confirmed since there's a Jak and Daxter stage, but they haven't confirmed any of the characters yet...)
LittleBigPlanet
Ratchet and Clank
Resistance (they did Killzone, so...)
Uncharted

Less likely but still possible:
Ape Escape
Folklore
Gravity Daze (yeah it's super-new and only has one game, but it has a lot of people talking...and gravity-controlling powers would rock in a game like this)
Heavenly Sword
LocoRoco
Syphon Filter
Team Ico's stuff
Warhawk
White Knight Chronicles (yes it's Level-5 but Sony owns the IP)

Long-shots:
Dark Cloud
Demon's Souls
Everquest (not really sure how you would do MMORPG characters...)
Legend of Dragoon
Rogue Galaxy
Wild Arms

(Funny how all the RPGs ended up on that list...I didn't do that on purpose, I swear)

Potentially for stages/items but not necessarily characters:
Gran Turismo (yeah, I don't know how that would work either but it's one of their biggest franchises...)
Hot Shots Golf
Motorstorm
thatgamecompany's stuff (come on, you know a Flower or Journey stage would be awesome)
Wipeout

Sony has also said that there will be third-party franchises in the game.  They haven't said who but presumably they're going to focus on third parties that have traditionally been Playstation-centric.  Even so, this really opens the doors to a lot of potential franchises...

So there's lot's of stuff to drawn on, but it's mostly pretty new stuff.

Post by: Kevadu on April 28, 2012, 10:57:36 PM
Well, they already said they're working with third parties, just not who.

I was just pointing out that they weren't on my list because I was only listing stuff Sony owns.  And there are no guarantees with licensing deals, since the licensor may or may not be on board with the idea.

Wow. That is a tremendous ripoff. I'm kind of shocked, but not shocked at the same time considering the PS Move. Regardless, I don't really like Brawl all that much; I still prefer Melee. I know a lot of SSB fans think the same, so maybe Sony is trying to get their foot in the door with a party fighting game of their own? Ok, probably not.

It REALLY hinges on their roster at this point. They've got the catalog and so long as they avoid retarded shit like the RIIIIIIIIDGE RACER! car or limit themselves to mostly things that have been released or will be released soon I could get behind this.

At this point I'm on the lookout for entries from things like White Knight Chronicles, Heavenly Sword, or Legend of Dragoon before I'll start deciding on whether to get this or not.

Well yeah, it is a ripoff with a lineup that's been determined more by what needs the publicity than what was actually meaningful for Sony but if it can get some competition going for Smash Bros. it might just be worth it.

I suspect that it's going to end up being current gen console warriors looking for another way to say "Sony does what Nintendon't." and grade schoolers looking to put their money where their mouths are by actually being able to pit Kratos against other characters because he's the 'bestest, coolest, and most badass character evar'.

:facepalm:

Parappa the Rappa and Sly Cooper are both pretty Japanese. So too is Raiden (and due to various leaks Solid Snake is all but confirmed as well). Norioko (or whatever that chick from Heavenly Sword's name was) has also been all but confirmed. Plus there's Tekken's Heihachi is another that's been all but confirmed.

So yeah, I don't think there's been any significant white-washing going on.

Now if only 90% of the female cast weren't delegated to assist trophy status....(but I guess that can't be helped given that there weren't that many female leads to begin with).

Still need a loooot more in there for me to be interested. Essentially, a roster that can make you forget that this is such a blatant Smash Bros clone and like "Holy fuck ______ is in it!!!!"
Some Lara Croft would be dandy (I'm surprised no mention on that one), Soul Reaver dude (Kane, Cain, Kain? Eugh, whatevs), at least one FF wankwad, hell, get Joel in there to promote Last of Us.  I'm surprised Capcom isn't making a deal for some extra pesos to get Ryu in there or anyone.

Truthfully I think if they included a Wild Arms character, you'd be unhappy with who they included. It's obvious characters like Kanon, Raquel, or Anastasia won't be included. Besides, Wild Arms has too many mains to be represented solely by one of them, I think.

Hell, not even Virgina from WAs3 has much of a chance to get in outside of a strictly support role. I'd say either the mains from WAs1 or 2 have the best chance and the female support is also going to be from those games.

you have an interesting impression about me. would you be surprised to know that in smash bros i main king dedee. and last night in P4A i played Yu for 3 hours in ranked matches and the 1st character i beat story with was yosuke? i only play females because they are female in rpg's because you can lvl up and become stronger to some extent.

If this is true, then I apologize. Some of the implications I got from your posts were wrongly construed.

Nice choice. Can't deny however that I was sort of hoping for the impossible, Mario, to be the final boss.

I will be picking it up so I can have it on Vita and PS3. I enjoyed the beta and couldn't give a shit less that it's a Smash Bros clone.
