The more I think about it the more upset I get (cool story bro)

10 replies 260 views Edited Feb 5, 2013

I don't think I've ever been this upset about something regarding video games. Maybe it's because I was waiting for a game like this for about a decade just like many other people. The roster wasn't great, but it was decent, the gameplay wasn't perfect but it was manageable. I thought this was a franchise that was going to last for a long time. As of right now, we don't really know how much more support this game will get, I was hoping this game would be continuing to get patched to get better throughout the years and HOPEFULLY warrant a sequel. 

 

AS OF RIGHT NOW, I feel like Sony will eventually abandon this ip and move on, basically killing off the game that had SO MUCH potential. The thoughts of Snake fighting Cloud actually never happening just irritates me when this was basically the game that was suppose to let the fans see it happen.

 

I'm not trying to make anyone feel sad for me, I am particularly sad that the FANS may in fact never get the game we were all hoping for.

 

This is of course assuming that Sony will abandon this franchise within this year because I honestly think that Santa Monica couldn't care less about this game. :smileysad:

Unfortunately yeah..they might just abandon the series despite the fact is great game, flawed,but great. It just did not sell well, let's hope the sales pick up with DLCs, that is it's last hope..

Well Kat and Emmett are free so they won't count, the only thing that could probably save it would be 3rd party DLC characters such as Cloud, Snake, Lightning and Sora but the chances of them being in this game just got slimmer.

People need to relax lol, whether this game sees new content is up to Sony, not Santa Monica. They seemingly dropped the ball on those other projects because Sony told them to. Sony has said that DLC is still planned so take their word for it.

Why would the chances of getting 3rd party characters be slimmer?? Assuming Sony does want to continue with DLC, which they said is in fact the plan, than Santa Monica is waaay more likely to get support in comparison to Superbot. Santa Monica has a proven track record of releasing phenomenal, polished products. Whereas Superbot put out one fun yet severely unpolished game. If I was Square Enix or Activision I would much rather have my precious characters in the charge of someone who actually knows what they are doing as opposed to a brand new studio.

Well SuperBot had people who know how fighting games generally work, besides Seth Killian, who does SM have? Can they and will they continue to balance this game? I highly doubt it but I hope they prove me wrong.

I think a big part of it has to do with how many projects they get handed.  For the most part, whenever Sony severs ties with a company, their game seems to go to santa monica.  They can only keep so many going.  As long as enough people keep supporting PSASBR, we have nothing to worry about

It's all pretty depressing honestly. I might just play Uncharted 3, TF2 or CS:GO for my online multiplayer fix.

That being said, I'm happy to have it in my collection to play when friends are over... that is, if we just don't instinctively go for Brawl or Melee...
