Persona 4 Arena wins Destructoid's best fighting game of 2012 award

Persona 4 Arena wins Destructoid's best fighting game of 2012 award In a awarding that came as a surprise, Persona 4 Arena took top honors in a community-run poll at Destructoid, one of the most popular gaming sites currently in action. The other fighting games competing against it were:

This is not the first award for Persona 4 Arena as it also won the best fighting game of 2012 at the Spike VGAs.

Since both of these awards have been samples of community polls, public opinion seems to have accepted that Persona 4 Arena is a truly standout fighting game.

SuperBot: We believe it’s important to give players enough time to explore the game and find their own counters to seemingly dominant strategies

SuperBot: We believe it’s important to give players enough time to explore the game and find their own counters to seemingly dominant strategies SuperBot Entertainment has posted a FAQ over on their Tumblr. This covers some of the important questions that have been coming up as of late from character balance, freezing glitches, arcade sticks not working and more.

Here is a small excerpt, check out the full story over on the Tumblr

—Kratos/PaRappa/Jak etc. are overpowered. Can you please nerf them?

Balance is hugely important to us, and we have spent a great deal of our development time balancing the gameplay between all of the characters. However, we also believe it’s important to give players enough time to explore the game and find their own counters to seemingly dominant strategies. Releasing balance patches too quickly can stifle that creativity, so we’re taking a more steady, patient approach when it comes to character tuning.

We shall continue to gather telemetry data from the millions of online matches being played. If any of the characters are shown to be greatly overpowered, it will be readily apparent, and we will make adjustments as needed.

—Fat Princess’ Villagers freeze in the air forever after laying a bomb.
—On Heihachi’s level 2 super, Kuma does his little dance then freezes after finishing the super.


This is a known issue with PAL and should be addressed in Patch 1.04.

Smash Bros. creator says fans need to wait awhile longer on the new game, will be worth it

Smash Bros. creator says fans need to wait awhile longer on the new game, will be worth it Things are going to be very quiet in regards to the new Smash Bros. game being developed for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, as according to series creator Masahiro Sakurai, fans are going to have to wait awhile longer for updates as he's hardly ever posting to Twitter, and he feels it's best if he could be forgotten by the gaming public for a bit so he can put his efforts into the game itself.

He wrote in his Famitsu column via Polygon and VG247:

"To put it succinctly, I'll need to have you guys wait a while longer. I hardly ever write anything on Twitter any longer, and that's because I think right now is the time to stop tweeting and start putting in a real effort here. If I could put it a really harsh way, I think it'd be better if I could be forgotten by gamers for a while."

"Instead of talking about what Smash Bros. will be like, I'm just going to say 'I'm making you wait for it!' and keep going along. I want to put my all into a full-on launch that really makes that wait worth it."

The new Smash Bros. title was announced at E3 2012, and there's been very little information put out there about the title since, besides a few random factoids and that Namco Bandai would have some involvement.

Unfortunately, it looks like this trend is going to continue for a good while.
