Really ? I brought my die hard Smash fan friends to play the game and although some were very sceptical & slow to ease up to the game (save for a few who are more open minded/own PS3s or Vitas & bought the game), they really enjoyed it. Had a huge tournament night with two monitors (two 4 player games running on each) and we had a blast learning the movesets, mastering the characters etc. I think we'll be playing the game just as much as SSBB & SSBM now if not more (until the next SSB entry releases).

I'm not saying they didn't have fun (even if not as much as with Brawl obviously, and they're not fans of neither of those, they're casual gamers), but they simply said it was much more easier to play. Yeah sure characters have more moves (not that much anyway) but all the rest is extremely simplified. And after an hour of play, we got bored and went back to Smash.

Hmm, fair enough. I think once you play one straight after the other, the differences seem way more apparent lol. It actually made me want to play with the lower tier characters of SSBB just for the sake of changing up the formula (usually just main 2 characters).

Quoted from Zeothedeathgod aka mr. Optimistic: ''i am a bit disappointed by the roster''
Another Zeo quote: ''They should really have chosen a different roster''

Re: Identity conflict the main cause for poor sales of PASBR

I never really found smash entertaining. Why? Because I don't like Nintendo's character roster. Nintendo's games have never held any interest to me. Every modern LoZ game is basically the same, with slightly updated graphics and a story that's basically "Link you're destined to save X". Mario 64 was the only mario game I enjoyed playing. And I enjoyed Star Fox, but I hate the feel of the characters' movesets in SSB. However, PSASBA has a very diverse character list from a lot of games I love playing.

 

I never played brawl competitively, so I can't really judge how PSASBA compares. But overall the flavor of All Stars is better. When you see a characters moveset, you can look back at the game they came from and see exactly where that move came from, save for a few characters (Toro, Fat Princess). I can only say that about a few characters in SSB, and all of them are main Nintendo characters. SSb also makes little effort to really diversify its movesets between characters from the same series (Mario/Luigi, Fox/Falco, Link/Young Link, Pikachu/Pichu), the only case that All stars does something similar is with Good/Evil cole.

 

But honestly, to call someone a casual gamer because they're having fun with a video game is kinda silly... After all Brawl is on the Wii...

Black Ops 2.
Too many video games were released around the same time and not everyone has the money or time to invest in multiple video games.

Sales aren't poor. They're okay.

My friends list is almost full, and I'm the only idiot playing this game. I even tried to give my brother my download code, and he refused. Sales are poor because the game is.
