I wonder what will that Locoroco stage mash up will be? it should have been Loco roco X Patapon stage....

I swear if I see another God of war stage......

It will probably be something unfitting, despite what everyone says here (PixelJunk, etc). It's like Patapons invading Hades, and the Killzone MAWLR attacking the Chop Chop Master Onion Dojo stage.

I don't want stage mash ups that make sense. I like the complete randomness of the Patapons attacking Hades, or Buzz interrupting an LBP level.

If we did an Uncharted/Journey mash up, it just wouldn't feel fun, to me. Now, if Journey were mashed up with Motorstorm, that'd be a different story, because Journey is this peaceful, serene experience, then, suddenly, Motorstorm racers start bursting into the scene, wrecking shit.

LocoRoco/Patapon is a fun idea, but it fits together too well. I'd much rather have LocoRoco mash up with something like Uncharted or Ico/SOTC. It just seems more fun and unpredictable that way.
 
Reposting this because relevant:


Calling dibs if there are suicidal Motorstorm racers in the game.
 
This is Sir Daniel all over again. Why is everyone wanting to put in a Legend of Dragoon character in that only had 1 game in the franchise on the PSX, over a Wild Arms character which is a franchise that has 7 games with the latest one being released in 2008. Don't they own a little more to the fans that have followed the franchise so long and paying for the 7 games in the series?

Personally I think Wild Arms is the better game, and it seems like history says most people agree with me, and generally reviewed better to boot sans a review or two that loved LoD, but here I am seeing a Legend of Dragoon request on every single damn page while no one says anything about Wild Arms.

I agree, Wild Arms is a fantastic series and would be deserving of a spot, I even think the whole western theme would be awesome and would bring something unique to the entire mash up - I just figured LoD was a bigger name. I'd be all for both or either making it in honestly, just anyone but Lightning.

There are so many other RPG games (even older FF games as I mentioned) and series that are so much more deserving than her. You could even argue that the PS1 really hit it's RPG stride with FF VII, at least VII was the game that really made RPGs huge and mainstream. Wild Arms will always have a special place in my heart just like Arc the Lad, but who knows what RPG character they'll go with.

Hmm outside of Square Enix and Sony first party, what would be a good RPG representative? Namco already seems ok with doing things for this game looking at Heihachi, maybe Kos-mos or someone from one of the recent Tales of games would be a good choice.

I mean if Lightning is only the logical choice for both Sony and Square Enix for Square Enix characters...

anybody else getting messages like this?



Salty bro

No, but last time I played you, you just spammed radac sniper move and rolled away when ever anyone got close.

I don't play like poor unskilled trash, so maybe that's why I don't get messages calling me that.

Valkyria chronicles characters

Yeah I keep forgetting about Disgaea and the rest of Atlus because it seems so unlikely that Superbot would care about them. A good Atlus character would totally fill that jRPG role that so desperately needs filling if they can't get Square Enix. Valkyria Chronicles characters as well.

Disgaea

Valkyria Chronicles

Ys

Persona
 
^ Largo would be a great character from Valkyria (not the gun type, but a heavy with projectiles), as well as a Valkyria/Okami stage mix. Or, since we like chicks so much, that Valkyrie girl from, I think, the boxart of VC.

Do hope to see more JRPG stuff in the game.

I've come close to wanting to send hate mail to some players, but it's all in the name of fun. I appreciate that more players are going after Radec together now. He is still 3 move character predominantly-- sniper, triple burst, and sticky nading, but I like getting in close and fucking his shit up... unless he's good and evades the shit out of me while pistol blasting me. Very good fun, I like the anticipation, timing, and thinking ahead

Laharl, Etna, or a Prinny (Better yet Etna with Prinny servants)
Selvaria

...and ughh how could I forget Persona *facepalm*
 
No I will not take a breath. Honorable PSAS play is the most important thing in all of life.

Well I think I play honorably enough.
Just beat the same user using Parappa (made a point of going after him, I feel Parappa is the best for that) ended up winning. And before the kill screen even passed I received the exact same message from him...auto send?
I will give the guy credit, he utilizes the block a lot better than most people

Edit: But things were being done to make the block weaker or something right?

Basically the person attacking would still gain chip AP while you are blocking

I would kill for Prinny, he'd be perfect for this kind of game. Plus Disgaea is very close to the Playstation brand, and he's had a few games of his own!



Too bad it seems almost unlikely, GAF if you have a heart we'll push for Prinny along with Kat and Tate.

Now I'm going to go cry in a corner.

I've always found it funny how people make a note to insult the skills of the people that beat them. If the person that you just lost to is unskilled, what does that make you?

I want this this Alundra character in this game, tho I never play the games before are they any good?

Its a Zelda ripoff that's not quite as good as the game it is ripping off, but still very fun by itself.

Sort of like PSASBR.

Billboards, top dollar commericals, and of course a
Dojo like website with weekly updates.

Yes it was, and some of them where very difficult.



Airplanes that write messages in the sky!

Commercials? they're doing great by showing the game around E3, EVO, Gamescom, and TGS

I guess, meant less through WHAT means, and HOW.

Like... let's say you had to come up with a PSASBR commercial or print ad

Question received for podcast today, and curious to hear your answers

If you were Sony, how would you advertise PSASBR?

Magazine ads, commercials, and bundles. Strategy videos and character breakdowns on the PS Blog and PSASBR.com

In a perfect world there would be a digital bundle and both versions would be on PSN day one. A special page on the PS store for the game and it's content would be nice as well. They could also have sales on games that are represented in the game, maybe on a week by week basis.
