That's your opinion, bro.

[QUOTE]Having Kratos fight "the fat princess" is not a good idea. It's a complete clash of styles that will be completely unable to stand the test of time (and by that I mean after an hour, everyone will be fucking over this hodgepodge of a mess).[/QUOTE]

Yeah, people said the exact same thing about Snake in Brawl {ZOMG HE'S TOO REALISTIC TOTALLY UNLIKE THE OTHER REALISTIC HUMANS IN THIS GAME GET HIM THE HELL OUT} AND Amaterasu in MvC3 {ZOMG WHAT THE FUCK IS A DOG DOING IN THERE GET HER THE HELL OUT}, and those turned out fine and dandy.

Well....sort of.

IMO - Snake in brawl was pretty dumb, it's an extreme tonal shift from EVERYONE else in that game. But...kids love the snake, so...sure, mines, rocket launcher, Metal Gear Ray. I feel like the absurdness of MGS, it's almost inherent cartoony nature, allows it to be a stretch in that cast, but still work.

Amateratsu works. She is not the most outlandish character to ever be in a Vs game. Hell, Marvel 2 had a giant walking talking cactus. That game is designed to be crazy. HOWEVER, what is the BIGGEST COMPLAINT about the MvsC3 cast (that isn't that megaman isn't in it)? It's that there's too many characters who's special ability is whipping out a gun and shooting the other person. Wesker, Chris, Jill, Dante, Deadpool, Rocket Racoon, their base gameplay centers around guns, predominantly in most cases.

Now that being said, look at the people who are already announced or who that you know will be announced. Nathan Drake, Story Hellgast, Jak, Rachet, Whoever they decide to put in from resistance, guns, guns, guns, gunsgunsguns. Hell! Look at Smash Brothers. Who wasn't bummed when Star Fox, Star Wolf and Falco all had pretty much the same moveset? And even then, it was guns guns guns guns guns LANDMASTER.

I don't buy it. I don't think the people who are being put in charge of this game have the nostalgia necessary to make the move lists interesting. Yes, fat princess using cake as a power up is hilarious, if not obvious, but when it comes down to the less whimsical, more realistic characters who are just, in the end, dudes with guns, I doubt they're going to be able to keep that sort of imagination up.

And yes, it is my opinion, but Medievil was terrible. Could never figure out why anyone would want to play Medievil when you could play Maximo. Or...fuckin' Ghouls and Ghosts.

It just kills me, we barely know ANYTHING about this game, literally six characters have been revealed, it's already been shown that things are being done to ensure that the game isn't just a Smash Bros. knockoff... And people are still bitching.

Oh, and I forgot to touch on this earlier...

[QUOTE=Mesoian;4375972]It feels like a giant Vita ad; as if Sony has to go out and remind people that the Vita exists and everyone in this game has a game that can be played on it.[/QUOTE]

Uh... No, pretty sure that's not entirely true, and no, it was made because so many Sony fanboys for so long were all "Sony should make a Smash Bros.-type game! They'd do it way better then Nintendork!"

I agree that an overkill in firearms will kill this game.

Hm. Not sure if want.

The Smash Brothers works because there are very few M rated characters there. Snake. That's it. There's no watering down of the "adult" characters for the sake of the kiddy ones. Here I think it's a little too much of a clash of styles to see Sweet Tooth vs Krytos vs Parapper vs Fat Princess.

At least no one in Brawl was known for dismembering their enemies to bloody chunks. . .then again what Mario does to those poor Goombas is pretty nasty.

[QUOTE=Mesoian;4371437]Not interested. Konami couldn't do it and they're smash-style game had Optimus fucking Prime vs. Barbie.[/QUOTE]

Whoa, time out... You didn't like World Dream Smash TV or whatever it was called? I felt the health bar system was quite ingenious. (each hit you land expands your HP bar and reduces your opponent's into nothingness, IIRC?)

Battle Arena D.O.N did it better.
