Playstation All-Star Battle Royale Doesn’t Even Look Awesome, Promise

A blatant, low-down, unabashed Super Smash Bros. clone looms on the horizon, aiming to steal Nintendo’s flagship series and make it into a Sony affair.   I will not stand idly by as Sakurai himself is disparaged and picked over like a dead possum (I love him, man!).   It’s called Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale (previously rumored as Title Fight)and it’s not going to get my support.   No sir.


Even if it does look like incredible fun and is going to be overseen by the flawless Sony Santa Monica and developed by SuperBot Entertainment.   So what?


Maybe it will showcase some of my favorite characters on levels that are directly and artfully inspired by a large stable of Sony titles.   Hrmph.   You know what?  I don’t even care if it will launch with online and local support, with a promised, robust single-player campaign!


Luckily, I won’t even bat an eyelash when the unannounced release date is finally given to us and I most-certainly will not mark it on my calendar.   That’s something that just wont happen.   I mean, I’ve never even once enjoyed a PaRappa, Sly Cooper, God of War, Killzone, Twisted Metal or Fat Princess game.   So, why would I enjoy watching these presumably beloved characters go toe-to-toe?   Yeah.   Another thing you shouldn’t do is head over to IGN and watch the very first reveal footage of Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale.   It’s not a good idea.   At all.  I wouldn’t lie to you.

Just to show how little I want to play this game, here is another video of the game in motion and brief talk from game director, Omar Kendall.

  • Your sarcasm summarizes my emotions in the best of ways. I want to hate this game so hard. My memorable nights spent with pizza, soda,and the best of friends in a cutthroat series of Smashes should not be stolen by a Sony ripoff. How bloody dare they. I cast aside the rumors by justifying that there’s no way the company can be that stupid. I whined to anyone who would listen (myself only, obviously) about how much of a trainwreck the now-confirmed title is. Not even obscure 3rd party Wii minigame mashups dare to entitle anything with that many ridiculous words.


    But then I heard everyone talking about it, from IGN to the rest of the professional Internet…and they love it. By George, they can’t get enough of it. And that means I’m going to love it, regardless of whether or not a want to.

    Frak it, I’m still never saying PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale out loud again, at least. Serves them right.

    I love Sony, but they blatantly copy things left and right.
