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

Recommended Posts

So, I installed the new patch and guess what? My game doesn't fucking work! It crashes every time I try to load some menu, can't connect to the online servers and never loads if I choose to play offline.

If I reinstall the game and load it without the patch it works just like before. Seriously, did they even tested this shit?

Also, my pre order costumes just vanished, patch installed or not.

Yeah, the new patch has been causing a lot of problems in EU. Some people can't even get to the main menu before it crashes.

There's reports about it all over the place. You can also check the official message boards about it.

Just picked up the game myself and redeemed the vita cross-buy. My friend brought it over and I will admit I had my doubts but this game is fun in its own way, to the point where I have to stop comparing it to Smash.

My friend and I run team Ape May Cry and never looked back. Drake is fun to play as too.

Indeed, I thought I was the only one with this issue, but it only occurred when the new patch installed. Literally nothing works. No aracde mode, versus, online. What on earth were they thinking?

Whats going on Superbot?

Clearly it was a mistake. While it shouldn't have happened in the first damn place, there's at least 100 boat loads of possibilities of what could have went wrong. I'll give Superbot the benefit of the doubt this once since this is their very first game and whatnot.

What happened: program error due to most likely making it in the fastest time possible.

What people think (not referred to you guys): Superbot is evil and wants to destroy the product that took months and months of work and hate from other people before getting recognized. Oh, and steal 40 cakes btw.

The internet always suprise me for its creativity.

Some tiny bits of Kat and Emmett gameplay:

Kat looks great with those combos and her Level 3 is amazing.

Emmett also looks cool, but his supers look mediocre, the Level 1 is basically Radec's Level 2 and his own 2 looks like you need to be pretty precise. His normal moves will cause lots of chaos, that's for sure!

Edit: Well, looks like the video is private now.

Saw it on another site: Kat looks really fun to play a so does Emmett. Good thing that the free package can be downloadble even if there isn't the main game, since unfortunatly, my wallett right now is not in the mood for something (and considering i have to take even Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Okami HD, Zone of the Enders HD Collection, Under Defeat HD and the 2 Sonic Adventure, i really don't know when i will be able to get it).

Kat looks very fun to play as. I see she has a slide drill kick move that dodges firearms, that'll be useful against Radec and Drake players.

So I just downloaded patch 1.03

Some icons you can choose for your profiles have been changed from what I've noticed. So far Toro and Heihachi have the most changes for icons.

Well, looks like another stage was leaked:

I wonder what will be the mash-up. I gave some ideas about stages some time ago and one included a Gravity Rush x Final Fantasy stage, but yeah, I can't really see that happening right now.

A Gravity Rush level? Cool! I've played the game recently at my friend's house, he had Transformed too. For about 30 minutes of play-time, I can already say, it's a pretty good game, loved the concept and Kat's personality.

SuperBot seems to be hiring for another fighting game (more specifically, a new PSASBR)

It's... strangely very soon as i expected: i mean, there's nothing wrong with it, but the game is in store for less then a month and the developers (who hadn't even finished planning all the DLC) are hiring someone to work on a potential sequel?

Unless maybe it's something like a PS4 porting as a launch title: that will make sense (although i will be kinda against that since i know that if Superbot will do this, they will easily fill up the game with new characters that i will not be able to play since the console itself will cost like 700-800 €).

Well Smash Bros Melee similarly debuted 2 years after the N64 in a timely release for the Gamecube launch. I wouldn't doubt that Sony and SuperBot wouldn't be able to do the same thing if the PS4 would be launching for 2014, but I'm surprised that Sony are planning to put some stake into it since this game hasn't performed well at all.

Either way I'd welcome a sequel that improves upon itself. Unless this is just listings to work on some DLC stuff.

I'm glad Sony are backing this franchise, in spite of its lack of widespread success. The game is pretty good, but its pretty obvious it could be a whole of a lot better, and I'm guesses Sony and Superbot know it too.

Two things to note from that job post:

I) It doesn't say it has to be a sequel or even a fighting game. In fact, Omar has said before they could explore other genres keeping the character mish-mash concept.

I'd personally love a DotA-alike game, easy way to make all the characters keep their different playstyles, allows for constant updates and works well with a free to play model (dat LoL raking in the moneys).

II) They are also looking for an art director to unify all of the different artstyles. While the core game is good and they have more than enough talent on staff to keep it like so, the most prominent of all the valid complaints concerns the barebones presentation. A cohesive style and flashy UI will go a long way to make whatever they make next more attractive.

And that way they will have an easier time convincing IP holders to borrow characters.

Notes from a chat session Omar Kendall and Daniel "Clockw0rk" Maniago had.

• They're currently focused on Nathan Drake, Raiden and Kratos in regards to character balance.

• Sackboy's nerf was planned before the game went live, but the nerf isn't set in stone.

• Kratos is the most popular character while Fat Princess is by far the least.

• SuperBot mainly considers ranked match statistics in regards to character balance. They do plan on revealing some of these stats on which characters are the most successful.

• They’re investigating the possibility of adding 1v1 ranked matches and a timer option for stock/kill limit.
