So you say this game failed?

7 replies 356 views Edited Feb 3, 2013

How do you know? Do you have the sales figures? Do you know how big the budget was? What was their break even? No. You don't know if it failed, flopped or anything that so just **bleep**. I've heard that it sold 500k units by the middle-end of January, so if my math is correct then they still made a good bit of money (average of $40-$50, taking into consideration the early price drop) . From where I'm standing, the game did not look like it had a big budget to begin with considering the size of the development team, the amount of characters and the little amount of content. If anything this game has done quite well.

 

So...yeah, **bleep**.

i would say that this game sold about adverage.. Sad as it may be, but there wasnt really anything groundbreaking about this game regarding the sales. Unlike smash bros. however.... Smiley Surprised

I'd say it could've been better and it SHOULD'VE been better. I understand it "takes two to tango" in in reference to third party characters, but that's a really crappy excuse for lack of characters/content. The fighting system is this game really IS not that complex, its not Marvel vs Capcom 3. If they had a problem getting third party characters how about make some more from the games already included? Being a sly cooper fan, I'd love to see Bentley or Murray be included as characters. I mean you DO play as them in their game. Or have chop chop master onion or one of the bad guys from uncharted, or have Daxter and clank be their own characters. Im really gonna be disappointed if these rumors about Zeus are true.. that's not a videogame character.. that's a **bleep** Greek god.

I think if you find the strategy in this game not to be complex, you have not seen proper 1v1 or 2v2 yet.

To plug my league like I always do... Smiley Tongue

But seriously, some of the fights I have seen rival certain fighting games. SuperBot made one heck of a game, just try to watch some really high level play and you'd see there is a lot more to this game then we have found thus far, you should hear about some of the tech we discover EVERY day at the leagues! The meta game is VERY interesting, and DLC just ads to it.

The 1 v 1 in this game is extremely broken I meant the fighting system is what I said is not complex. The only thing that's never been done before was that the only way to get kills is with supers, but the supers weren't even that creative compared to other games with supers and final smashes.
