And it's about as bad as you expect. It literately rips off attack animations from Smash and looks like a F2P Chinese rip-off of Overwatch.

Professional players making games seems like the most horrible idea. It's never once worked well for them.

All the successful ones people love come about as games where the devs have an idea and do their best to impliment it, but the people who play it decide what's fun about it and how it should be played "properly". Pro players approach game design the other way around, and the results reflect it.

Pros:

>Plays like Smash, finally PM team can finally stretch further than just PM mods and updates

Cons

>The designs on this game looks like another generic Overwatch clone

Am I the only one who thinks this can actually look like a decent Smash clone? Rivals of Aether is fun but I hate the fucking furry shit. Brawlout is currently in Early Access and who knows what will happen for that game.

Nintendo doesn't give a rats ass about eSports. They have the bad outdated Grandpa syndrome not knowing what's currently trendy so they have zero support to the Smash community.

Knowing that the PM people are working on it and has positive praise behind it, how can anyone dislike it at this point? They've proven themselves time and time again they can make a successful Melee mod over Smash Bros. Brawl why give this one a negative look? I understand, the design on the game looks generic as fuck.

I'd say give it a chance. If Nintendo is not going to keep a Smash scene alive lets make it this one.

KH makes it work because SE and Disney have some special magic when it comes to aesthetics and production values. They also took the time to adapt character costumes to a more consistent look (simplified FF character designs for the most part) between the franchises while ALSO doing something entirely unique in regards to MC, the story, and the original areas. It wasn't a complete success- Disney and FF are an unholy combination no matter how palatable you make the experience, and the favoritism towards Disney in the deal is fucking awful. But they made it work in the end, and the rest is history.

Idol, however, is just melee fanboy wanking. They cribbed ideas for everything from everywhere and instead of making something unique out of them, it's obvious that they copied specific elements and changed them just enough to avoid getting some bloodthirsty lawyers on their asses. I bet Nintendo already knows about this is and is asking their legal department if they can send a C&D over the animations alone.

>>384225386
Did they not realize that the only reason people play Smash games in the first place is that they have Nintendo characters in them?

Smash without beloved characters from other games is basically just a really shit game. I mean seriously, very few people play Smash games for their "stunning gameplay". They play them because Mario can beat the shit out of Link.

Take away the recognizable, beloved characters and all that's left is a mediocre party game with fighting mechanics.
>>
>>384236284

Try to stay focused. EVO wouldn't be bowing to shit if Icons were released in 2001 instead of Melee. Whatever staying power these games have with the special interest contingent, we know what the overwhelming draw has always been.

The Ken combo is what really did me. I mean why the hell would you specifically want to include that shit unless you wanted to do nothing else but recreate Melee perfectly. I don't want combo into spike bullshit.

No. Project M is good at what it set out to do, it's just that what it set out to do is stupid and leads to too much jank.

If they wanted any kind of positive reception they should have just tightened the animations of 2 characters and went with that instead of making 4 half assed characters

>waah waaah knockoff

oh fuck you all. nintendo blatantly avoids making a smash that works in any resemblance to melee/PM, so for fuck's sake a smash clone that actually inherited the unique aspects of PM without having the ever-constant threat of C&D is what WE SHOULD WANT.

if you want to get mad at it, go after the uninspired name, the blizzard/lLoL/Chinese f2p knockoff artstyle, the character designs, the shitty LoL model they're trying to replicate or that at this stage, the animations look exactly like Melee (but holy shit guys, the Pre-Alpha label clearly means that they're placeholders).

i won't hate for them making a melee clone but fuck, they've played their hand way too early here.

I'll call it a knockoff when it does literally nothing new and doesn't use it's advantage of being a TOTALLY new game to do some fixes to the game's core mechanics that'll be useful, you know, for example, slow character being inherently useless in Melee.

>what is pre-alpha

don't get me wrong, i'm giving them the benefit of the doubt at this stage, but i'd like to think that they'd be capable of doing something like completely replicating Marth mechanically but changing every one of the animations, and that the current character just has placeholder animations identical to him for now. there's at least some effort put into doing it like that. if they keep to the shamelessly copy-pasted stuff like we've seen from the pre-alpha footage they've clearly shot themselves in the foot and deserve every bit of shit they get.
>>
>>384240046
>what is pre-alpha
A buzzword to justify your game looking like hot garbage despite not looking any different from release. You want a real "pre-alpha"? Look at UT4. The maps were fucking geometries only. There was like 1 character model.
>>
>>384240046
Animation bro here.

If they went through the issue of completely ripping a characters entire animation set for a specific set of combat animations chances are it's there to stay.

You don't really have "Placeholder" Animations. It costs way to much time.
>>
They're going to need something to make this stand out from Sm4sh. Even Overwatch had the large character roster and availability on multiple platforms to sell itself.

don't get me wrong, I get that, but all the same the animations that exist currently look astoundingly similar to the quality of the unfinished Sami/Lyn/Issac builds from the unreleased PM stuff. i wouldn't put it past them to keep them as uninspired as they are, but I won't rule out someone suddenly thinking that this is probably not the best idea and changing it up a bit.

If someone like that existed, it would have never gotten to this point. At most you can maybe pray that they'll eventually make new chars that aren't just clones from the smash games, but honestly I kind of doubt it.When making a trailer, you lead with your good foot, and if this is the best they can do then thats not showing promise.

I think smash 4 is fun, I just like playing melee more. This game has no style, no grace. And I hate the idea of taking away defensive options.

This game looks boring in every way and most definitely will not have characters streamkids think are "boring"

The character design is so bad that I literally want to volunteer despite having zero experience because I know I can do better than these guys, and that wouldn't salvage the fact the game is too derivative from a single source. I understand that Melee/Project M is the blueprint but why retread the same old ground when you could look at Arcade, Arena and other platform fighters to give it a competitive spin. There are so many different ways to do this but they chose such an aggressively Western way to do it.

I'm genuinely curious to see how this one works out. I don't want to play the game and I couldn't give less of a shit about the character designs but I really want to see if this game succeeds or not.

Because you have these guys who worked on a well renown and respected Brawl hack that believe they can make something bigger and better than their previous work (not talking about playerbase mind you). And all the people who will follow them and see how it goes.

But how many of those people are there? A lot of people play Smash because of the characters and the great crossover idea (not too different from Marvel, and why so many people are memeing the functions thing) but these people would be considered the "casuals". The ones who don't care enough for the depth of Melees combat and other comments you might find about it.

Then you have the turbo melee fans who think Project M is "not melee enough" and of course, won't follow the game because of its core is flawed to begin with.

I can see the pro smash players giving this game a try, and maybe they'll like it (a lot of them play both Melee and 4), but what I'm curious about is if the audience will follow. I'm sure that there are plenty that will because some unironically care not about the game and just love to see this one dude playing it. But will the numbers reach at the very least something that can be compared to Melee? Will there be as many tournament attendants?

This game could be used for some interesting arguments that are going around lately (again, functions).
>>
>>384246253
I think we'll know if these people are competent when we get our hands on Gun Man. Considering he's their only original character, whether or not he plays good will be telling.
>>
Didn't someone say some of the characters are specifically designed to look like a few of the Melee gods like Hungrybox, Mango and M2K?
>>
>>384246719
They really just need to sell it to casual gamers and get it on consoles as fast as they can. Putting it on Pro/Xbone-x would get it some spotlight.
