Last night was a lot of fun at the event in Los Angeles put on by Iam8bit and Capcom, to celebrate Street Fighter’s 25th anniversary with a great art exhibit. In addition to a great setup with lots to look at, there were many fans of PGN that shouted out, took pictures with, and had a good time. Amongst these people were also several of the exhibit’s artist and we too shared some laughs…not to mention me being flattered that they were supportive of my new book.

Street Fighter artists knew about Lisek’s Great Adventure? Awesome!

But it was getting called out by another group present that was a surprise: SuperBot Entertainment. We spoke on a few separate occasions and had quite a bit of fun.

What exactly did we talk about throughout the night? Some of it was regarding my hints and their appreciation that I handled them the way I did, by purposely making the latest batch a bit more difficult to decipher. They also were kind enough to thank me for not revealing Big Daddy right before E3 and gave me props for wanting their studio to have a surprise like that. We then spoke about the recent leaks and I assured them that I wasn’t responsible for that happening. I even told SuperBot straight out that just a couple of days before those leaks hit, I met with my own source and received all of that same information…and then some, which is why I said in my Q/A that it was highly ironic that the leak came out when it did. I assured Daniel Maniago, Dean Rymer, and the rest of the gang that regarding DLC characters and other final specifics, they will be kept close to my chest.

And with that, I told them the same thing I told Omar and that group of SuperBot that were at E3, “I respect you all greatly as a development studio and that’s why I never let all of the details out of the bag throughout all of this. I have three parties in mind when I put up news. The first is to the fans that want it. I try to give to them something that they won’t get anywhere else. The second is to my source, because it’s for the friendship we have, that enables me to even share the news in the first place. And finally, as a man, I have to respect your group, because you work hard at what you do. There’s money involved, stocks involved, other parties/investors, and so on, in which lives I do not wish to hurt. It’s not about getting more hits, because I certainly could. After a while, it’s finding a balance in making fans happy, making the source happy by revealing what I’m told I can, and making you happy by building hype at the same time as not spoiling too much.”

It’s what I said to them, almost word for word, and they really respected me for it. And almost every member that night told me that I was a big part in this game’s hype train, that a lot more attention came their way than it probably would have, otherwise, and that everything turned out for the best when I revealed things last October and ever since…despite how unexpected it might have been in the beginning. So yes, we’re totally cool. They’re an excellent group of men and women that have a lot of passion for what they do, they’re really nice people, and I’m happy we’re all friends.

I even joked with them about me possibly being in the game, based off of some of your own suggestions and they thought it was pretty funny. Maybe not as a character, lol, but it looks like the possibility of being mentioned in the credits in some capacity, exists. Either way, this whole thing has been a blast and Paul Gale Network will continue to cover PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale until the game comes out and well after. I wish the crew the best of success with this and all of their future endeavors.

The chapter isn’t fully closed on this game, but now is as good of a time as any to officially state that I’ve got a huge Xbox 360 exclusive as well. It’s still far too early to reveal anything (let alone a hint), but know that it’s of the same caliber as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale was. And as far as I know, I’m the only person outside of those directly involved with the project, that has the information…so it should be yet one more PGN first. But that’s all that I’ll say for now.

      1. Well, there are 3rd party xbox exclusives you missed, like Banjo/Kazzoie, Conker, a mecha from Steel Batallion and someone from The Last Remnant. Just sayin’.

  2. waoooooo it would be cool that you have a cameo in Playstation allstars battle royale or maybe as a playable character jajja πŸ˜‰ really and an special exclusive for the xbox-360 it would be an smash bros with the exclusives characters of microsoft maybe???? well thanks paul and is good to know that superbot and you are cool πŸ˜€

      1. Well what about that your normal moves are from differents martial arts
        Level 1: Paul do flying kick
        Level 2: Paul throw some gym weights
        Level 3: On the screen appers Ryu from street fighter and help paul to kill the others charactes (both use a shinkuu hadouken)
        well what do you think about this moves???? personally it made me laugh jajjaja πŸ˜€

  3. What was the point of this article? You literally said nothing, why should we care about pics of you and Superbot? Save that shit for Facebook or something

    1. hey men don’t be a jerk paul is doing everything to give us information about the game and also some of us want to hear about the jokes with superbot so relax because the information is on the way πŸ˜‰

  4. What do you mean by same caliber as PSASBR? They’re not making their own Microsoft All Stars are they? Cuz I’m pretty sure one of their guys said they’re not making one.

    1. Haha, that was quite a funny pic. I was joking with them that we should stage a photo of them choking me out or me laying on the ground with them kicking me, lol. We’re all friends though and it was great to talk and laugh together. They definitely have my full respect.

  5. Fantastic article, cool to see you’re still Choppin’ and Kickin’ with the Superbot and that you still believe :=)
    good luck with your book and that xbox exclusive.

  7. Paul Level 3 Super: Paul takes off a photo whith a hint on who will be the next character revealed the opponents starts speculating and then explode for thinking too much… Hope you know I’m just kiddin’! πŸ˜› I really appreciate the work you’re doing and I think you deserve a space at least in the credits of the game…

  8. Hey Paul! It’s nice to see that you and SuperBot are good friends!
    By the way, could you give us some hints for the character reveals at Gamescom? hahah
    Please, we would be so glad!
    Thanks!

  9. paul will you kindly answer some of these questions :p

    1) when you said there is more characters to be revealed other then the characters that were leaked was that not taking into account dlc characters or is that it for the disk.

    2) what your opinion on the crash and spyro hype can you say anything about them, I understand if you can not

  10. How about he summons Lisek as part of his moveset somewhere? Or a Paul Gale gym-like scenario as a good training stage? The list can go on forever… Stil trying to figure out who a good rival would be for him though (unless we see Kevin Butler in the fray)… xD I’m excited for PSASBR and if you were in it, I know I’d probably play as you 100% of the time.

    1. Those are some more fine additions, lol…thank you! And being a playable character in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale would definitely compete well against my appearance in Street Fighter IV as a guest in the European Cruise Ship Stage. If that happened…wow.

  11. well you have been ignoring my questions so I am prob getting on your nerves but this is an urgent matter as you may know for two min an updated psas site was up and people that were on got some things from it they will effect how many people view the game?
