This week’s show has a rather combative focus, featuring thought-provoking interviews with two prominent fighting-game figures from EVO 2012. First, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Game Director Omar Kendall discusses his plans for the PS3 and PS Vita brawler, including the addition of Heihachi and Toro Inoue (with more to come this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con). Then, Injustice: Gods Among Us Creative Director Ed Boon walks us through the secrets of his 2013 DC fighter from the team behind Mortal Kombat. Boon’s chat contains some juicy hints at what’s next for NetherRealm Studios — it’s well worth a listen.

    “I don’t know how many people are gonna say ‘this game is 20% better than the last one'”. 20% cooler perhaps?

    Poor Sid.

    There were 4 of you then Rey went on assignment, Jeff is somewhere getting a tan, and now you’re only with Nick. Hmm…you’re lucky Nick came back from (Africa?) when he did or else you’d be doing the blogcast alone!

    And lets face it, that would be awkwarddd! I think…? =P

      On the upside, you’d get some really sound farming advice.

      Nothing new for now, but hopefully soon! You’ll be sure to hear when we do, as it’s very high on my list of most wanteds.

    Man no matter what kendal say… Heiachi was a horrible choice of character…. and even more since hes practically a betrayer of the PS brand by tekken going Multiplat.
    Anyways Im freaking exited about Smash Station Brawl!

    But for real… Add the Smash out of ring KO system just like Melee ok? PLS do that…. if not this game its going to fail badly… and i totally dont want that.

      Having gone hands-on many times with All-Stars, I can tell you that doing ring-outs would be totally lame. It’s super fun as-is, the Supers are a very interesting approach. Once you go hands-on (for more than 5-10 minutes), you’ll see what I mean. It’s way fun and addictive.

    For those of you that got a DYAD code and don’t want it, I have 4 words for you: GIVE IT TO ME!


    + triedallthem on July 12th, 2012 at 9:35 pm said:

    P.S. I was the one that guessed that it was the original TM because there is a song on there very similar to the one they played from Small brawl

    Hi there i got a vita tip: If you brought velocity and you cant dowload it from your vita i got good news for you there the game works on vita and here is how you can make it work,
    step 1:download velocity on your ps3 but dont install it
    step 2:connect your vita to your ps3 and go to content manager
    step 3 transfer velocity to your vita and you are good to go

    So any thoughts on the Spider-Man movie? We could use some more movie talk; there was only that one time with Prometheus & Avengers.

    Hey, Sid, I don’t know if it’s just me but the last couple episodes have a wierd echo chamber reverb. Did you change your equipment or location?

      Was it on the Ed Boon interview part? Might’ve been the room we were in. Thanks for the note, we’ll take a look.

    Sorry I was referring to comment #10.


    + Kchow23 on July 13th, 2012 at 11:25 am said:

    @Nick I think seeing the original ending for ME3 and then the Extended Cut is better since you can see the few things that the few plot holes that they addressed. It really depends how much of a Mass Effect fan that determines whether or not you will like the original ending since you have to know a bit of Mass Effect to understand the flaws (looking at you Sid!)

    I won a code from PSNSTORES and while I didn’t think much of DYAD when I first saw the videos. DYAD is actually is a pretty fun game once you go hands-on and you understand that how it is a game. It would’ve been really cool with 3D support if it was as good as Child of Eden’s.


    + Dubloon7 on July 13th, 2012 at 11:42 am said:

    If anyone has a Dyad code and doesn’t want it, I would LOVE to take it off of your hands (^_^).

    Emailed my response to the mystery theme already, I hope I win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    btw, I’ve owned both ICO and SotC for PS2 when they were first released. I’ve played thru them too many times to count, and sorta lost interest in playing them on the PS3. The trophies are the only incentive for me to purchase/play these games now.

    Is there any trade-in program of PS1/PS2 games for equal or discounted PS3/PSN equivalent games (i.e. ICO/SotC-PS2 for ICO/SotC-PS3)?

    I also own Xenogears on the PS1, and bought the PSN digital version of this classic the day I bought my first PS3. I think something like this would be more beneficial for the consumer, as I would gladly trade-in my old PS1 used copy for 1 new digital copy. Better to give Sony back the software purchased and used rather than send it to Gamestop/Craigslist/eBay/etc.

    anyone knows iwhere should i put the tip at? is in here or via email? also could anyone tell me the email ? Thnks ^_^

    O_O!!! by ur answer my worries went up that Smash Style wont be in this game…. Fo r the love of God dont let that happen… i mean i want this mode of supers but i want the traditional too…


    + D-Squad3 on July 13th, 2012 at 11:44 pm said:

    @24, you’re being ignorant. There is no “traditional” way to play a brawler. Go watch Superbot’s EVO Panel, they go in depth about the whole Super System. They want to make their own game and not copy everything from Smash Bros. you should play it for a good amount of time before judging its own mechanism.

    Here’s a link to the EVO panel.

    @26 Eventually, but you can download it on your PS3 and transfer it to your PS Vita for now.
