----------------------------------------
Gameplay Mechanics:
----------------------------------------

Supers
  • Supers are the ONLY way to earn points and win
  • You earn supers by accumulating AP in various ways
  • There are 3 levels of super, each level being more powerful than the last
  • Supers can’t be blocked, but there are various ways to defend against them.
  • Level 1 supers are not as easy to land. Level 2 supers are more combo-able.
  • Level 3 supers lockout all other supers. Example: While Kratos is in god-mode, no other super can be activated.

Defending against supers
  • You can only defend against level 1 and level 2 supers
  • Supers can be avoided, dodged, or countered
  • Some characters have their on way of dodging a super
  • Normals attacks can be used to interrupt most level 1 supers which require a charge up.
  • Supers can be countered with other supers
  • Supers can be block by picking up a shield

Throws
  • Throws can be used to eject, knockback, combo, and deplete meter

Combo system
  • With Infinite Avoidance System, characters don’t fall victim to infinite combos
  • Once you hit an AP threshold, your opponent gets ejected from the combo and placed into an invincible aerial state until they hit the ground.

----------------------------------------

  • Story Mode

Nice OP, Loudninja.

Is that leaked list confirmed or just credible leaks?

I think SuperBot recently basically confirmed them, or at the very least, acknowledged it. I think there's more in the comments?

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/08/02/playstation-all-stars-battle-royale-public-beta-this-fall/

In addition, there was an unexpected and unintended leak in our beta that allowed fans to be able to see some additional content. We’ve enjoyed reading all of the fan reaction and are thrilled that so many of you are excited to learn more about our character roster and level mash-ups, however we are still in development and the leaked content does not fully represent the final product nor the incredible efforts that were made to make these elements truly spectacular. This will be evident in the coming weeks as this content is officially revealed, beginning with our next character announcement at Gamescom in a couple of weeks.

Wouldn't have gone through so much trouble for the "leaked" characters yet due to Superbot's line of "the leaked content does not fully represent the final product", but that's just me.

Great OT

Haven't been following the game much. Do we have a release date? Or do we just know that it's 2012?

Nice OT, but my hype's been somewhat deflated. It could play fantastically, but the cast so far including the leaks is underwhelming imo.

I'll probably still get it though, but it seems a bit like an opportunity unfulfilled.

Fuck I don't know which version to get


Hopefully there is a bundle deal.

Me too, I'm already wanting a Vita for a couple games already (LBPVita, Snapshot, Gravity Rush). So if I do get one before this game comes out, I'd drop cash for the bundle instead of just getting the PS3 version.

I was kind of surprised some people found the leaks underwhleming.
For me the Leaks boosted my hype for the game higher than it was before it.
To the point where it's one of my most anticipated for the year. Also the mention that there's still charcaters that weren't in the beta files just excites me even more.

I would wait until we get the whole roster.

As a Nintendo fan, this literally makes me sick. SSB is a staple of Nintendo, and it's not right for another company to basically copy and paste the game and call it their own. Hopefully Nintendo will sue or something, because this is so wrong.

I always expected Ratchet and Clank and Sackboy.

Raiden is fine, but Snake was expected.

Don't really care about Spike. While Sir Daniel is an interesting inclusion.

Evil Cole is a waste of a slot to me. Likewise Nariko.

And DINO... Bleh.

I'm guessing Lightning will round out the third party offerings, and I'm ok with her, but overall they're lacklustre. Few heavy hitters (figuratively).

Hey, we got ourselves a new topic.

Here's to another 20,000 posts of speculations, fake leaks, real leaks, Kat begging, Jen Tate avatars, hint decryption, bullet counting, Smash Bros ripoff hate, and Half Life 3 levels of Crash Bandicoot conspiracy theories.

Edit: And here's the real wall of shame.


I expect a spot for everyone in the credits of this game.

I'm sad you left out JenTate begging. She's going to be in this I can feel it.

Could also mention the mashups for current stages! (Patapon for Hades, God of War for Metropolis, Buzz for Dreamscape, Hot Shots Golf for Sandover and Killzone for Dojo.) Then i'll be happy :).
Done!

I am excited to see the other 9 mash ups, because they are great so far.

So yeah I'm really liking those banners, and it will be really nice to have a go to reference for all those stages and characters.
