Thoughts on a Powerstone like ipod game?

A game like powerstone or super smash bros with wifi online play would be a good idea to me
Maybe designed by Gamevil , since it seems in there area.
with gameplay like the online game rumble fighter

Powerstone is awesome, if you have a PSP you can get it on there.

Not sure why it would be Gamevils area though? What do you mean? Might just be something I'm missing.

Don't think I'd want Gamevil anywhere near this type of game, not a fan of that dev.

Power Stone would be awesome for the iDevice but sadly as SEGA hates the iDevice (or at least is too stupid to realize how powerful it is) we won't get it

And why Gamevil? I also do not understand why you threw their name out.

Powerstone is owned by Capcom not Sega
I like Gamevil's style of graphics, so I chose them
Only thing they fail at is actual online multiplayer

Gamevil's 2D cartoony graphics would make the game NOTHING like Power Stone. I played the game in an arcade one day and really liked it, but as much as I like Gamevil, I wouldn't put them in charge of a game like this. I'd give it to Gameloft, since you really don't need much story, but rather good controls and good 3D graphics, both of which GL can handle well.

And Gamevil doesn't fail at online MP. I actually had a ton of fun playing Zenonia 2 online.

I didn't say I wanted an EXACT port of powerstone, notice how in the title I said Powerstone-like not the exact game. I'm more of a fan of cartoony graphics when it comes to free roaming fighters, graphics like Rumble Fighter or Zenonia..

And on Zenonia you aren't ACTUALLY fighting someone in real life, it's more like a bot of their character, same with Baseball Superstars

Power Stone revolves around a free-roam movement system on a 3D engine, I don't think 2D would work well, I wouldn't want Gamevil to do it.

Graphics don't make a game

They don't realize how powerful the iDevice is (comparable to PSP and much better than a DS) so they only give us lackluster ports of some of their classic yet dated genisis games only with horrible controls and very often features of the games missing.

I never said graphics made the game -.- I just said I like their style of graphics, thus the reason why I would want them to make it
