  Super Smash Bros. 3D / U
Posted by: ClaudeLv250 - 06-24-2012, 01:51 AM - Forum: The Arcade - Replies (6)

It's a thing. It's coming. We've known for awhile so it's time to stop pretending. SSB originally brought the community together, so it's only appropriate that a thread is made for the new set of games.

This is everything known so far about the next Smash Bros:

  • Development has JUST started
  • There are two games, one for 3DS and one for Wii U
  • Both are SEPARATE games with unique content and not the same game on two platforms
  • There will be some kind of connectivity feature between the two
  • Masahiro Sakurai is in charge again
  • Namco Bandai is a co-developer with Project Sora

We probably won't hear any news for awhile, so I guess from this point we can speculate or make a wishlist.

Must say I'm really impress with how many video game characters Disney was able to get for this movie.
Looks like its going to be pretty cool.

Just stopping by for a bit of nostalgia. I kinda gave up message boards awhile back, it's hard to find time to post any more. Curious how everyone is doing though.

Who all is still coming here?

  Super Sony Smash Bros AKA 'PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale' Announced
Posted by: Cap - 04-27-2012, 02:21 AM - Forum: The Arcade - Replies (3)

Quote:Sony Confirms New PS3 Fighting Game, Complete With Stupid Name
Sony has just confirmed on GTTV the worst-kept secret of 2012; namely, that it will be releasing a first-party PS3 fighting game, and that it'll actually be called PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

In addition to first-party characters, the game will also feature mascots from third-party outfits as well.

It's due on the PS3 this holiday season.

If you were thinking it might not actually be a Smash Bros. rip-off...the first footage of the game looks a lot like Smash Bros.

Video Here:

Saying that this is a Smash Bros rip-off is an understatement...

Hands On:
Kid Icarus Uprising (3DS) - Yeah I know its out already, but I haven't had a chance to play it until today. Only got to play the multiplayer, which was a lot of fun then I had expected. Also don't understand the big deal of the controls, I held it the whole time and didn't need to have it sitting on the table.

Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 (360) - They had a two level demo, Game feels just like the first one. The addition of Tails is pretty cool, you have the normal picks you up and carries you around just like the old version of Sonic and then you could do a joint Team spin attack which is Sonic and Tails together making a very large spin ball which can drill through items and pretty much kill anything in your way, feels a bit broken on how powerful it is.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy (3DS) - Think Elite Beat Agents with Final Fantasy music and a really crappy cartoon art style. The gameplay was fun, but the art style really kills it for me.

Devil May Cry HD Collection (360) - It plays like Devil May Cry, and it looks like the PS2 version, I don't know where this "HD" part comes from in the title, but the game looks no different then the PS2 version being upscaled by the PS3. So unless you want the achievements/trophies or have never played them and only own a Xbox or PS3 with no PS2 BC there is no point in getting this collection

Marvel VS Capcom 3 (Vita) - It's Marvel VS Capcom 3 on a handheld.

House of the Dead 4 (PS3) - Feels just like the old Xbox version, I think the Wii version is still more accurate.

Castle Crashers: Arcade Version (Arcade) - I think it was the 360 version but it was set up in a arcade cabinet, played just like the 360 version just with a joystick and not a controller.

Virtua Fighter Final Showdown (360) - Plays like other Virtua Fighter games this gen, still a lot of fun and its a XBLA game.

GamePlay Video:
X-COM: Squad Turned Based game, they said they are basing a lot of it off the original X-COM. Doesn't look like a game I would play on a console, but maybe would pick up on the cheap for the PC.

Assassin Creed III: OMG, This game looks awesome. I'm getting the same feeling when I first say the Original Assassin Creed. A lot of cool new features. Can't wait for its release.

Lollipop Chainsaw: Wanted to play it but the line was always maxed out and no one new was allowed to wait, was at least able to watch someone play and the game looks really awesome.

FarCry 3: Looked like a nicer version of the pervious FarCry games, nothing to impressive truth be told.

Borderland 2: Sadly was never able to get to play it, the wait was 3 hours to play. Was at least able to watch people play, Gameplay doesn't look to different from the first game, still and it looks Super Awesome!

  This is Not Itagaki Team Ninja
Posted by: Cap - 04-04-2012, 11:33 AM - Forum: The Arcade - No Replies

[Image: doa_art-2-212x300.jpg]

With the release of 'Ninja Gaiden 3' we finally got a look at what Team Ninja is going to be like with out Tomonobu Itagaki behind the wheel and so far I'm very divided...

Let's start with Ninja Gaiden 3, this game has been getting Really harped on by critics, and I can kind of see why, this doesn't feel like a Ninja Gaiden game it feels more like a Dynasty Warriors game. We have lost the insane difficulty which has been a staple in the franchise, the story is even weaker then before, the dialog is terrible, the graphics are a bit lack lust and the gameplay... Ugh the gameplay, while at first I didn't mind the mindless button mashing it grew very boring very quickly and the 'quick time events', please kill me now these have NEVER been a good gameplay element and Ninja Gaiden 3 WAY over uses them, they show up in the middle of combat for crying out loud.
Maybe had this game come out under a different name it might not have gotten as much heat but there are certain expectations put on the Ninja Gaiden name and Ninja Gaiden 3 falls very far and very flat, But is not an awful game, it is still fun and worth at least a rental or a $45 purchase.

Now onto the other glimpse we got thanks to Ninja Gaiden 3, bundled with each copy of the game was access to a early Alpha demo of 'Dead or Alive 5'. When I said I was divided on the New Team Ninja this is why. What we get to see in this demo has me more then excited for the release of Dead or Alive 5.
First off the graphics are stunning, the DoA girls (at least Ayane and Hitomi so far) look realistic, gone is the comic book insanely large boobs style that DoA had been known for (Fans of that style should not worry it looks like that torch has been passed on to Soul Calibur).
The environment we got to see was very cool the way the level changes and how it interacts with you reminds me a lot of what Super Smash Bros has done but on a much more intense, closer and personal scale.
The controls seems to be a lot more fluid then pervious DoAs, but still keeps the simplicity that the series in know for.

My verdict so far for Team Ninja: Version 2, On the Ninja Gaiden front a great deal of work needs to be done, Go back to what made Ninja Gaiden so bad ass cool and lets not try to force the fans into something new and aimed at a wider audience, Ninja Gaiden IS for a niche market and a large one at that, don't forget the fans who kept this series alive, Go back to what Itagaki did with the last two games.

And for Dead or Alive 5, OH MY GOD KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING! To me as a fan of the series, it looks like DoA is finally in the hands of someone who truly cares about it and wants to make it something more then just a T&A game, DoA has always had a very awesome universe and story but it was always overlooked because of the character designs, We now have someone in charge who seems to want to move pass that. Here is hoping that the Story that will be wrapped around DoA5 will be just as Solid and Amazing as the graphics we are seeing in the Alpha demo.
