This Week On PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale: Free Avatars, Oh Kratos... you continue to goof.

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone who could help me with the Friendly Competition trophy? I need to play online with some friend in versus mode to unlock it and the only person that I know that has the game is currently busy with exams and can't play for a while.

My PSN name is Tmsp95.

Wow...Transformed, the very bad F1 Superstars, Angry Birds Trilogy, Black Ops: Declassified... even Book of Spells is beating Battle Royale at this point. This game just managed to scrape Top 40 too.

All goes to poor marketing and lack of well known characters. No Crash, no Spyro, no Snake...

I'm actually frightened that there may not be a sequel.

Yeah even if Crash isn't a "PlayStation character", he's got almost the kind of mascot power Mario or Sonic have, this game really needed someone as iconic as Crash.

It's bizarre it hasn't sold, was the marketing that bad?

Admittedly I didn't realise it was out til I asked about it here.

What really makes me cringe is that even the fucking Family Guy game topped this. Oh, and that Angry Birds thing.

The poor marketing I can understand, but the lack of well known characters? Yeah, I can see how Crash, Spyro, Snake and Cloud could have an impact on people, but most of the roster is already actually well known Playstation characters, you have Ratchet, Kratos, Nathan and Sackboy.

To tell the truth, I never saw anyone giving a fuck about Spyro or Cloud (and Crash to some point) before this game was announced. Me as a Playstation fan actually wanted those characters in, but most of the people just seem to complain about them not being in it because it is a "popular opinion" just like that "Sonic sucks" thing we all know.

But what is shocking me the most is Book of Spells. This is a PS3-Move only game, there is a very limited audience....it's not even a game, and it's beating Battle Royale.

Family Guy I understand, Family Guy's one of FOX's most viewed shows ever so their audience is big. The cashgrab games are being a non-cashgrab game...and it's a good game from what I'm seeing. Sony has to do something fast. Before they lose money creating this game more than actually earning.

Yeah but if you're going to make a PlayStation All-Stars game, no matter how well you put it, Crash and Spyro is kind of a must as they were PS1 icons. I admit I was a bit stupid saying this game has no "well known" characters as it has Nathan and Sackboy but these characters have yet to reach iconic status. For example, will we see Nathan Drake again after Uncharted 3?

Kratos is iconic only for the hardcores. Kids won't know who Kratos is because their moms will not let them get God of War.

Some member of Atlus talked about possible Persona characters in PSASBR.

Oh God, hold me if this gets somewhere! But fuck Teddie, give me either the Protagonist from P3 or P4.

If they manage to get one of those two this will be my favorite roster from a crossover game ever made.

To be honest, i will prefer a lot the protagonist of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, but Teddie is a really fun character, so why not?

Let's add Atlus in the "It's up to Superbot" list along with NIS Entertainment, Oddworld Inhabitants, Ed Boon and the others.

And someone ask something like this to SEGA for maybe Selvaria Bles or Kazuma Kiryu.

Say whatever you guys want, but the characters from P3 really grew on me unlike anyone from a game ever had, so P3 Protagonist would be perfect, at least for me. I can already see a Super being the All-Out Attack with Junpei, Yukari and Aegis.

I like Teddie, but sometimes I can't just bear him.

Talking about those companies saying that "It's up to Superbot" just makes me wonder why won't SB just work with them instead of trying to get Crash which seems impossible thanks to Activision. I would prefer all those characters instead of just one, even if it is Crash Bandicoot. I still want him though.

Of course we don't know anything about those characters situation, so this is just speculation.

Remember that final decisions are up to Sony: they are the big men that decides wich company Superbot can talk and wich not. We only have to hope that someone will be listened.

In the meantime, why not remind Omar or Seth about this on their PSBlog?

I'd be fine with sack boys stupid cake launcher having any amount of ap gain, as long as it was turned into a charge/wind up attack instead. The thing that makes it so cheap is the amount of distance it covers with a single button press, meaning the cheap asses can spam that shit without much risk. I don't mind it being retro active or anything like that, I just want its unfair range to be adressed.

The main issue with Sackboy wasn't really addressed. His level 3 is still incredibly strong and and you can net four to five kills with a single use of it. And that's in 2v2 not even FFA.
