Just because he didn't like it doesnt mean he was a Smash fanboy. He even said he was excited for the game when it was announced
He said he was excited for it because he thought it would be exactly like Smash....
During one of the Sonic '06 playthrough videos I remembered Arin saying something about how he didn't like the Jak and Daxter games (I think), so I'm not surprised he'd feel the same way about this game. Ah, well. *shrug*
Yeah, Arin hates Jak & Daxter. He likes Ratchet and Clank though.
Hmmm. Actually, I'm pretty sure that Arin likes both Jak 1 and Jak 3. He made a comment once saying that Jak 2 was the worst, though. Jon is the one that likes Ratchet and Clank and considers it an underrated series. I've been waiting for a while for them to get around to one of the two. However, I'd moreover appreciate a Sly Cooper video series. :-)
Their criticism was not even constructive. It was mostly dislike. I wouldn't say hate since they didn't entirely dislike it. First (not really PSABR related) if your not over the new Dante by now, thats a bit sad. Dante has a classic costume as DLC. They gave you that, can you just get over it pl0x? They also shoudln't be allowed to judge the game when they clearly haven't played it long enough to get the full feel of it. Now lets look at their comparison of this game to SSB. They clearly expected this game to be a Smash clone in every way. If the game was like that, I honestly think I would've hated it a bit more. Its way more unique than Smash. Heres a comparison of the pros and cons of both games
- The combat system is generally better imo.
- Super system adds to the fun of the gameplay
- Each character is unique to themselves
- Fun local play
- The arcade mode was rushed and obviously not enough time was spent on it.
- The online modes are horribly laggy or unreliable at times (but fun anyway)
- Character imbalance causes spam and other irritating tactics online
- Game types lack. I wouldn't have mind if they stole a few of these from SSB. In specific, this game lacks a 1v1 mode, a stadium mode like in Smash would've been great, and event matches like the ones in Smash would've been beyond fun.
- Local play is superb
- Much more intricate arcade (by the 3rd game...)
- Tons of fun modes
- The percentage system and health modes are a huge advantage for this game
- While it has a larger roster, some characters are almost exact copies of each other. Fox, Wolf, and Falco are the exact same characters gameplay wise (they all have the same final smash too). Link and Toon Link are almost the same as well. Lucario and Mewtwo play the same too (even if they are in different games, they could've been made differently). You get my point?
In short, Smash has more going for it at this point. But its an established series on its 3rd game. To see that PSASBR is pretty much just as good, is saying something. Now I like both games, so this is coming from someone who has played all 3 smashes and has had PSASBR since day 1. Wow, did I just seriously rant on about that one video. I feel so silly nao . I was actually was gonna rant on Youtube, but I wouldn't be able to fit this all in one comment Anyways, feel free to counter my arguement as much as you would like and make me look idiotic starting..... NAOW!
I was just going to post this in here. I love Game Grumps. Honestly I think Egoraptor might be a little **bleep** because Tester dumped him for the stupidest reason you could ever dump anyone for in a show like that, I mean I would be. Literally they got rid of him for the stupidest reason ever. "You didn't help your teammates how to shoot melonnnsss ARINNNNN", that was kind of dumb. I know that he probably wouldn't have won, but they could of at least got rid of him in a better way...
But back on topic. I was a little excited about this video and a little scared at the same time before I saw it. I could see some actual points that they made though. The game did have a more potential.
