So the "final" initial roster for Sony's Smash Bros. wannabe, Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, has been released, and while more might be offered later as DLC, the roster is pretty terrible. Only 20 fighters? Good & Evil Cole? Random dude from Killzone? Fat Princess? Just for reference, Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii had nearly 40. Sure, some are palette-swaps but it also has those oh so iconic characters that have way more personality than 99% of Sony's roster. I love Nathan Drake & Ratchet & Clank, but pretty much everyone else on the list is devoid of anything resembling a compelling personality, including super angry all the time Kratos.
Also it's October, which pretty much starts the slate of big holiday releases. And while this year may no be ridiculously jam packed like previous ones, there are still a fairly solid number of big releases coming out this month alone. The first being the latest desperate attempt to breathe some life into the Resident Evil franchise with Resident Evil 6. The demo released a little while ago shows off several different styles of gameplay, all executed extremely poorly. Laugh at your useless A.I. companions. Or Leon karate kicking heads off zombies. The horrible Gears of War style levels don't fair much better, with it being nearly impossible to get behind cover AND shoot. I wouldn't be surprised if after this flops it's awhile before we see a Resident Evil title again, which might be a good idea seeing as there has been like 4 in the last year.
That;s really all for today, should have another post up in the next couple of days. Until then here's your FREE GAME OF THE WEEK: Snake Squad
