All Star Battle Demo! Prepare for the Horses!
Games Radar posted a preview of the All Star Battle. We’re getting our first look at real gameplay instead of just style. He may not know the terms or be able to tell the difference between balls and yo-yos, but at least we get to see the game.
It’s looking all right. I’m no great judge of fighting games, so I can only make some preliminary judgments. I would have preferred straight 2D instead of 3D, but I can adapt. That guy kept using “2.5D,” but it looks like regular 3D from here.
The one thing I can say I’m absolutely not interested in is stage hazards. I guess the idea is to add an element of unpredictability to the game, but I don’t like the idea of not being able to rally or losing out on a good combo because I didn’t predict Wham wanting to go for a ride with his vampire horses. If this ever comes over officially or otherwise, I imagine any stage with hazards being banned from tournaments.
Nerf horses. Nerf, I say!
Assuming there is a stage without them, of course.
The only stage for real men.
I’m still very excited for the game. Even if it ends up being only, “Meh,” I’m still going to play it to pieces so I can horse people in the face as Gyro at all opportunities. So good luck CyberConnect2, and good luck JoJo’s fans.
