Let's cut to the chase - the balance patch for All-Stars w/ Zeus & Isaac costumes is in Design & Testing RIGHT NOW (even this weekend) and is still on track to give this game the fresh update it's been yearning for.
I know you are anxious for a specific patch update with bulleted balance notes, I do not have that for you today.
Communication has been sparse simply because we don't want to give you an update that isn't an update at all (yes, I get this message is now a bit ironic considering I said that ;o). Your frustration is easily understood, and we accept that this patch is long delayed beyond our original timeline. For all intensive purposes, the original estimation with the resources we had during that time, was not accurate.
We have dedicated resources on this balance patch right now, and I will share more specific notes with you just as soon as I can. Design and Testing is still in the middle stages, so we're not on the cusp of an immediete release.
I say we get some great community tournaments continuing this month and start to rile up the core community. It is coming.
Thank you SO MUCH again for your patience and sustaining this community.
Here' s a FACT - the PlayStation All-Stars Forum, this one right here, is the #1 Most Active Forum in ALL of PlayStation. How about that? That's YOUR win, let's keep it going.
Thanks for the somewhat Update Tank. Also just wondering are you fixing some stages such as San Fran where even if you disable Hazards the platofrms will still blow up?
It's certainly not an unfounded emotion. If I were on the other side of the coin, I'd feel similar as well as a hardcore fan. THAT being said, it's amazing the continued life this game as shown over a year later, with a strong core community. That to me says with or without a balance patch, this game has the heart of a strong community who loves it.
We'll give it a shot in the arm.
Well I guess I have to eat my hat.
And everyone else's hat.
Guys, line up, I'll get the fork.
