I'm PRETTY sure many people would be upset if Skylanders Spyro and Crash of the Titans Crash were our characters instead of classic Spyro and Crash.
Skylanders Spyro looks awfull, I'll give you that. But both Crash of the Titans and The Legend of Spyro had a very nice transition design-wise. I would welcome both of em to AllStars.

I only checked the PS store recently and nothing's there. I guess it's not in the EU yet (or maybe it isn't coming here at all?)

Kratos is easy to counter, guys. His attacks have ridiculous frames and simply dodging, or even blocking his attacks leaves him wide open. It's nightmarish if there are 3 Kratoses (if that's a word), though; sometimes you'll get lost in how hectic the game is. I also found that a lot of his attacks actually throw you AWAY from him, which is a good thing; he's not a zoner.

Radec doesn't have much counters as of yet. If you see the boot-speed-pickup thing grab it and get up in his face. Side Triangle is really choreographed so if you play for an hour straight (like me) you'll get used to it. Thank god my friend is a Radec player, ranked matches would be nightmarish if he didn't train me to hop over the lazer sight.

Well I wouldn't expect anyone to know how to counter him that well yet, lol.

But yeah, once you look/try to play the game differently and not like Smash Brothers. it gets a lot more easier and stuff. I can tell where my character is more now, and someone else was just Parappa too. You're right about Kratos pushing you awhile with most moves too, you just have to hit him at the right times and not try to be an hero and get up close to him constantly. Also lol Kratoses I just said that to Neku not too long ago. One or two Kratoses is fine, but three? Oh God. Tbh this game is like Smash Brothers and a fighter put together, but it's hard to punish people and counter sometimes because other people are being chaotic too. 1 vs. 1 please. :3

I just won three matches in a row as Parappa and he is actually pretty good once you realize how to use him. You pretty much just have to try to punch the shit out of people to build your meter up, and you don't even need his level three to kill everybody because his skateboard super is pretty *bleep*ing good and fun to use. His level 1 is kind of lolwut, but it's good too.

Parappa's boom box is also really good, and if you can run and get away with it for a bit you can use it to build meter. I tried to block and stuff more and it helps and I dunno if the Krato's just sucked but I think I dodged stuff pretty well. I also used more level 1s with Parappa when I had a good chance to use it instead of waiting for the skateboard super. Sometimes using the first super is better if it's an easy kill or they're just all lined up perfectly. I still need to block more, but you never think of that much because it's too chaotic. I air dodge more now and it helps especially against supers. It's hard to not get killed sometimes though, like Krato's giant+armor super. :I Tbh I think he needs to get super slower, I called him cheap but I don't think his moves are the problem too much. He can just spam up the meter quickly lol. Radec > Kratos though I think, Radec is annoying. ;_________;'

Parappa still seems like he would be a bit above low tier, but I think some of the other characters would beat him up too. I want to main Spike because I *bleep*ing love Ape Escape but I want to check out Sackboy, Big Daddy and maybe somebody else too. I will probably use Fat Princess a lot too, and I'll keep using Parappa even if he is decent at best. Parappa the Rapper brings but good memories and is one of my favorite games on the PS1/just one of my favorite games overall, Parappa was a part of my childhood man! I don't use characters just because they're good or broken unless I'm trolling or just having fun. I like using bad characters though, that's always fun when you actually do good with them. A lot of people play bad characters because they actually like the character and won't change even if they suck and I respect that, especially when they beat a lot of people with that certain character or team that is considered "meh" or bad. Speaking of Fat Princess too, there are already combos for Fat Princess Sakuraba Neku told me but I'd rather wait for the full game and a training mode. The beta is pretty much just for the basics. I've just been doing stuff like forward circle and etc but I'm trying to string stuff together more like triangle square circle or whatever like it says on the loading screen thing lol. ~

Also ranked matches huh? I forgot about that.

Yeah, I'd like to see how the game plays out in a controlled 1v1 environment. The whole meter thing, if you ask me, is more suited for the all-out free for alls with four players only because you can catch a cluster of three people at once with a level 1. You'd probably have to actually save up for the level 3 in 1v1 games for the most part.

But yes, a lot of the characters are very interesting and I want to see how they all work in gameplay. I'm really interested in how Drake plays out.

Really excited for this beta. On the topic of the number of characters, I agree. 20 characters is just not enough. Even SSB Melee had more characters. I really hope they aren't saving characters for DLC, because that would probably unbalance the game. Plus, it's just a dick move.

What's your point? I already know about the lawsuit.

I'm ONLY buying this if Kat shows up either as an unlockable or DLC.

The only character I absolutely love from this tiny line-up is Big Daddy, and after playing the beta for a long while, it isn't my thing; I prefer the standard O.B KOs of the Smash Bros series.


C'mon, PUT IN KAT YOU BASTARDS.

Kat of gravity Rush, FYI

Yup, we need more characters definitely and that's what everyone is saying. So, I hope they aren't stupid and don't put only like two DLC characters in. .-.'

Also errr, I heard rumors that there will be a stock mode so yeah. I heard that they talked about it before (and I think I remember the article) but there is no videos of it and stuff. I hope if it's not in the game right away it could be DLC or something, stock as DLC....how funny. Only buying the game for one character, wtf?

From playing the beta this game is way different than Smash Brothers. like the fighting and such obviously. I think I tried to play it Smash Bros. style at first and that doesn't really work out too well, so I stopped and actually tried to learn the game better and stuff. Smashfags called it a totally copy just because of the look of it, and I thought it would be almost be an exact copy a bit too until I seen the videos of the supers and stuff. The playstyle is way different too like I already mentioned., so.......not really a copy! ~

Yeah, Kat should make it in. I loved Gravity Rush (if you read my review on it you'd see why *wink wink* ) and it's basically the poster boy game of the Vita at the moment. It would make perfect sense if SuperBot put her in, even as a DLC or even a Vita-purchase-bonus character.

I just wanted to post again and say "look at my awesome Spike avatar!", it even matches my red moderator stuff well. I actually like his new updated look, he DOES/DID look kind of bad in the first Ape Escape. Though he looks bit girly and gay now.

Anyways I still hope he is good or at least decent because I'm the most excited for him. I will probably still main him even if he does suck, but I don't think he will. I need to look at his trailer again.

I'm probably going to play the beta more today and get better at trying to combo into other moves and block and dodge on the ground more. Air dodging > ground dodging imo though, but it all depends of course. :3

Going to use more Parappa or Fat Princess, yay! Maybe even Sly Cooper some more. Parappa will probably be my second or third character anyways depending on the other characters. Fat Princess will always be my trololol/fun character to use too.

i just had to take this screencap from my Vita. Every 1/4 of the matches I fight are literally 3 kratos-es and with me as Sly and it's getting ridiculous, albeit hilarious at the same time. I really wonder who these guys will pick to play as when the full game comes out. My performance pretty much tells you how much I've been trained to fight Kratos at this point.

lol Parappa's a beast! I've been playing 2v2 with a friend (2 Parappas) and we'd do the square combo (fast punches) on an oppont at the same time. He's so fun to use
I also love Radec, Sly Cooper and Sweet Tooth the most. He's a beast, loving the shotgun and mines!
