Allowing players to have multiple profiles offline would help this game's offline play value tremendously. It would give friends who play the game often more initiative to play it and rank up their favorite characters. The profiles could be regulated in the same way that offline Call of Duty profiles are regulated, through a small save file for each. Letting each player customize their set of characters individually would add an element of diversity to offline play that can currently only be experienced in online play. Mind you, this is no where near a necessity; the game is definitely great as is, and will see a ton of play from both me and my friends. But, the fact that I am the only one leveling up on screen and the only one able to customize my character in this way does annoy my friends. For simplicity's sake, if this feature were to be added, all that would be needed to be changed would be a moving of the "characters" option under 'customize' into the "profile" option. The "profile" option could be renamed "profiles" or "profile management" and upon selecting it, it would prompt you to choose from an already created profile or to create a new profile. If they wanted to give the "solo" portion of the game more replay value, they could also move the "goals" option into the "profile" option and allow multiple profiles to play through and complete the goals. Functionality could also be given to the versus match screen to create profiles while selecting characters (similar to the way brawl allows players to create names at character select). I just think that this would help attract friends, who would otherwise not touch the game past multiplayer offline, and have them come to like the game much more.
I hoep there is enough demand for this though.
Playstation God of War Stars Battle Bore y'all !!!
I bought this game specifically for the offline multiplayer, and the fact that only P1 gets to enjoy the benefits of leveling up is very annoying. I seriously hope this was just an oversight that will be patched very soon...
