Day 40: Media

14 replies 275 views Edited Oct 14, 2012

This one is going to be relatively short, as I've got a lot of work I have to do. For that matter, you may not see me on that often at all this coming week, because I'm going to be killed by schoolwork.

 

Today...err, yesterday...I feel like talking about the media's opinion of All-Stars. I've spoken of this before, and my opinion still stands: This game is getting big. It's not big yet, don't get me wrong. But it's on the path towards popularity among reviewers. A constant theme about this game has been the media's hesitation - about anything, be it gameplay, characters, you name it. However, that theme has seemed to fade as more people have gotten a hands-on shot at the game. The impressions have gotten increasingly positive as a whole, and that makes me hopeful that the overall reviews won't be tainted (or even helped) by Smash comparisons (I'm sure I've made my opinion on comparisons in professional reviews very well-known by now). The game is making a name for itself, by itself now, and that I like.

 

Now I'm obviously not sure if people will read these positive reviewer comments and think "hey maybe it's not so bad after all," but it'd be a safe assumption to make. If reviewers are positive, many people will at least give it a shot. And we can all agree that this game does deserve a fair shot as its own game, rather than shut out as a Smash clone.

 

Anyway, what do you guys think about the slowly-growing media attention PSAS is getting? Let me know below. And as of Day 40, we're only 37 days away from PSAS.

Can you do one about 3 minutes being enough for a standard match? I think 5 minutes would be a lot better.

And I think the media was skeptical at first, but have realized that it's insanely fun no matter how much it resembles Smash.

redsox, I might have to do that, actually. I'll definitely consider it for what should be today's thread.

Yeah this game is getting a lot of positive reception now (Excluding roster comments). All it needs is some advertising to get it out there.

Game sites that have actually played it are finally realizing that it's a really good game
