Sackboy Changes In Upcoming PS All-Stars Patch

News Fighting PS Vita Playstation 3 Sony

Superbot Entertainment has announced that they will be bringing patch 1.02 to Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale in the near future. This brings several fixes, a new item and changes to LittleBigPlanet’s mascot, Sackboy. The new item will be Medusa’s Gaze, presumably an item from the God of War series. No details about the weapon from Superbot, but, if one is to divulge into the story of the mythical Medusa, the item would involve freezing the opponent since a glance at her eyes does turn the gazer into stone.

In addition, Sackboy’s Super Attacks are now going to take a little while longer to reach as the AP cost of all three have been increased. Jam Session, an attack where Sackboy throws a ball of jam, and Cakeinator, where Sackboy launches a piece of cake, have their AP gain reduced from their original figures. Changes to AI and the network are also part of the focus of this patch.

The full list of changes were announced on their Tumblr site (via Playstation Lifestyle):

  • A new item, Medusa’s Gaze, has been added to the game
  • View Invites has been added to the Party Bar Menu
  • Voice chat icon added to loading screens
  • AI logic enhancements
  • Network performance improvements
    • Issue where players were stuck with a different character than the one picked has been addressed
    • Issue with matchmaking in regards to player skill has been addressed
    • Overall improvements to network connectivity
  • Sackboy changes
    • Level 1 Super – Increase cost from 100 to 150 AP
    • Level 2 Super – Increase cost from 325 to 400 AP
    • Level 3 Super – Increase cost from 600 to 750 AP
    • Jam Session (Neutral Triangle) – Reduced AP generation from 25 down to 10 AP
    • Cakeinator (Neutral Circle) – Reduced AP generation from 25 down to 20 AP

Speaking of Sackboy receiving a nerfing, are there any characters in the current roster that need to be nerfed? What about character that need to be buffed? Shout out your thoughts below.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
