This game just looks bad. Luckily I have to real fighting games on my 3ds that not only take advantage of the system but have online play as well. So subpar fighters like this and blazeblue 2 (I here it does not even support the circle pad) will not be getting my money.

Saw this.

I think they mean Punch-Time explosion is more responsive than Melee, because Brawl is really really responsive compared to Melee

I'm pretty content with DOAD. In my opinion, the appeal of games like this aren't going to do well because of the 3DS's more mature audience. It's not like the DS, which had the appeal of a toy; it's starting to shape into an actual system and is slowly shooing off the casual market. Other companies are appealing to the age demographic that's most likely to own a 3DS (teens to young adults) with games like MGS and the like. It's too expensive a system to gamble with shovelware or sub par material. But it's not bad, though. I'd pick it over Monkey Ball or Steel Driver.

So did everyone hear that Captain Planet is going to be playable? They are going all out with this one. Can't wait to hear more.

It has too many stupid juvenile comedy characters at the expense of the good action shows like Generator Rex and Sym-bionic Titan. Who wouldn't want to fight as Agent Six or Lance (in or out of his Manus armor)?

@11 Since when do the Super Smash Bros. games not appeal to hardcore gamers?



crazyj2312 said:

@BulbasaurusRex I like Smash Bros, and the concept does appeal to everyone, but I, personally, don't want to spend money on a clone project. As someone who grew up with games instead of cable television, the appeal of Smash Bros to me is higher than this game because I know the Smash Bros characters. But thats just my reason, so

I'm not saying that Punch Time Explosion is a bad game, just that it's on a system that pretty much prioritizes your purchases; it's costs too much to get something second rate, unlike the DS where this game might have only been 20 bucks. (I hope I'm being a bit clearer lol I hate misunderstandings...)

Does anyone else think this is replacing S.S.B.B. on 3DS...? Sure looks like it, but bloody hell, I like it.
