Excerpt: Back in the 90s, the pitch for Super Smash Bros will have been one of the oddest things to come through Nintendo’s doors in a long while. The thought of the company’s mascots battering seven shades of shit out of one-another in a scrappy cartoon brawler must have made about as much sense as… Well,...
Excerpt: One would have expected Sony to release a mascot brawler many years ago given the depth of its first-party line-up and large number of PlayStation exclusives. While it’s taken a while to come to fruition, the platform holder has finally produced a rival to Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros.
Excerpt: Impulse Gamer recently reviewed PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale on the PS3 which received a 8.5/10 and was basically Sony's answer to Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. Even with the weird and diverse roster, this fighter/brawler worked considerably well on the PS3.
