Cool stuff John I may have got to play maybe 12 or so matches enough time to get somewhat familiar with Jak since I used him the most. Good that you had a crowd I only got to play against the CPU since I happened to me at the Mall in the middle of the week, I am pretty sure this weekend I could expect much more people being there since that Mall gets super crowded.
12 matches at 3 minutes each? See you were there for more than 30minutes playing hahahaha. Its definitely got that "...just one more match" feel going. Especially with another player joining you.
Im actually going back with a couple more friends today to go let them try it out since a lot of them havent been able to get their hands on it yet.
And yeah Jak is definitely a good character right out of the gate. What I'm most excited about All Stars is the potential to get your friends into it and have them get good with you. Im somewhat big into fighting games but because of their learning curve its incredibly difficult to get a friend to put as much time and effort as you in order to get decent. So matches usually end with you winning by a landslide and them not wanting to play anymore.
With PSASBR it just feels so much more accessible. An easy to pick up yet difficult to master kind of game. This mixed with the "...just one more match" factor is going to create a whole bunch of friends who want to play and get good.
Ahhh so much potential!!!
Definitley has that just one more match feel, I remember I kept telling myself while I was playing "I am going to play one more match with Jak and another match with Big Daddy then I am going to go" but I couldn't stop, lol. If I hadn't eat yet I would have most likely stood there forever. But I hear you on it being very accessible just like SSBM one of the reasons why this game is so fun.
