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.

SuperBot looking into ranked 1v1, balancing Drake, Raiden and Kratos in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

SuperBot looking into ranked 1v1, balancing Drake, Raiden and Kratos in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale SuperBot's Omar Kendall and Daniel "Clockw0rk" Maniago recently held a chat session to take fan feedback and answer questions. DualShockers did a great job transcribing the dialogue and came away with some notable details, including:

• They're currently focused on Nathan Drake, Raiden and Kratos in regards to character balance.

• Sackboy's nerf was planned before the game went live, but the nerf isn't set in stone.

• Kratos is the most popular character while Fat Princess is by far the least.

• SuperBot mainly considers ranked match statistics in regards to character balance. They do plan on revealing some of these stats on which characters are the most successful.

• They’re investigating the possibility of adding 1v1 ranked matches and a timer option for stock/kill limit.

Job postings hint at PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale sequel

Job postings hint at PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale sequel A pair of job opportunities at SuperBot sprung up recently on Gamasutra which suggest that a sequel to PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale may be in the works. The first one, for a game designer, mentions finding someone with "a near encyclopedic knowledge of modern games, with emphasis on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale," and "knowledge of fighting games, their systems and mechanics."

The second ad is for an art director for "a project such as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, which by definition brings together elements ranging from an incredibly wide range of artistic styles, requires a strong and unifying vision to present a cohesive and polished product."

In that same posting, it notes candidates should have a "particular emphasis on the history of PlayStation titles and characters," which would fit the MO for another PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale game, as they'd be adding additional Sony characters to a new title.

If this logic holds up, this would be a bit of a shock to many people as the game was reported to have sold very poorly in the UK. On Sony's end though, they had said that sales numbers were "right on target" with their expectations.

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale details on Katt and Emmett - special moves, supers and more

SuperBot Game Director, Omar Kendall, posted an entry on the Playstation Blog recently giving a bit of detail on the newly announced Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC characters, Katt and Emmett. Kendall touches on different subjects including mobility, special moves, supers and this blog comes equipped with some great screen shots as well.

Below is a bit to get you started.

Gravity Rush landed on PlayStation Vita earlier this year, introducing us to Kat. Her tremendous gravity powers, combined with a really charming personality made her an instant fan favorite, and thus an obvious candidate for PlayStation All-Stars. When looking at Kat’s play style in Gravity Rush two things immediately stood out to us: her reliance on aerial mobility and her arsenal of powerful kick-based attacks. We felt it was important to use these two elements as the cornerstone of Kat’s play style, and as such, her move set in PlayStation All-Stars makes liberal use of both.

For example, Kat doesn’t have a double jump! Instead, she relies on her Gravity Dash, an eight-direction mini-flight mode to move through the air. This cancellable move affords Kat an unprecedented degree of air mobility and attack potential
