    How's the actual gameplay? Is it a copypasta of Smash Bros. with having to knock your opponent off stage?

    It's some gimmicky crap of being able to kill with special moves only, I can't see it being as good as Smash brothers.

    As good won't mean not as enjoyable mind ya, Fraz. Though I certainly agree.

    That aside I'm far more interested in whether or not the game has any competitive viability in terms of 1v1 (can ya even control the amount of fighters in matches?). 4 player Free-For-Alls look like even more of a mash fest than Smash Bros. does, so I certainly fear for the 1v1's competitive potential.

    Idunno but if you guys have a ps3 download the beta like I am and test it out.
    I'm not planning on getting this game regardless though.

    Sony is full of **** clowning all these Ninty things onto the bitchstation 3 that it's irritating for me as a Ninty gamer.
    Yeah sure game looks decent but without a doubt it's a straight up smash bros rip off with a few different "twists" which for the most part suck ass.

    Well that depends on your classification of "fun". I don't see it as very appealing at all. If it was a competitive game 1v1 it would be purely based around tiers, that what it feels it'll end up being once the "fun" value has worn off and some people want to go competitive.

    Your view on competitive fighters is quite skewed, bro. :lol:

    Tier imbalance does not dominate a properly developed fightin' game. You've played Brawl for too long my friend, as not every game is as such. Take Soul Calibur 5 for example; literally the only non-viable tournament character in the game is Zwei, and even then there're some godlike players who bring honor to this poor character.

    Add onto the existence of DLC, and patches can be released to help balance really poor players and really broken tactics. SC5 is, again, a brilliant example of a competitive fighter bein' very balanced and characters not bein' a bunch of clones of each other due to the process of balancing. Any character is wholly viable, match-ups aren't indomitable unless it's a lower tier character against their worst enemy, and no one character is ass-broken.

    Solid competitive games are not based around tiers. Tiers are based 'round good competitive games. Get it right. :p

    That's pretty bad, even for a beta. :lol: Foreboding, but I'm sure this ain't a warning that it'l have utter **** online play or nothin'.

    Wow, I have the Playstation Vita version and I did not have a problem like that.

    Controls to the game:
    *Additional Info at bottom
    *L = Shielding | R = Powerup (You can roll to shield similar to that in SSB)
    *D-pad = Attack in Direction (Left/Right = Move)
    *Left Joystick = Attack in Direction (Left/Right = Move)
    [ ] = Attack Set 1
    ^ = Attack Set 2
    O = Attack Set 3
    X = Jump
    Start = N/A
    Select = Taunt

    Vita Specialties: Front Screen - Pick Up times Via Touch | Rear Touch - N/A

    +Note: Some [ ],^, O, Attacks require you to be idle (Just hit the button without direction)

    *Left Button - Okay, I do not like shielding with the left button. I am right handed, so I'm uncomfortable with that for the moment. I wish that would have been thought out a little bit better.
    *D-pad/Left Joystick - The one issue I have is, with Smash Bros., it was very comfortable to control your character on the basis that it was fluid. In this game, it isn't on the basis that I have to remember, you need to hit the button. That also causes some issues when trying to attack in the air because I'm not used to the characters attack plus having to switch to addition control.

    Another issue for me, on the Playstation Vita, is that I cannot recognize where my character is sometimes on the... small screen. The character size is just fine, but having all 1, 2, 3, 4... why not just have only your number and that's it. I would never get lost only seeing my number.
