Am I the only one...?

28 replies 447 views Edited Nov 16, 2012

... Who thinks that the 'reasons' one character rivals another is stupid? The characters get mad at other characters over little tiny things... 

For instance (This is what I mean, i was probably unclear) - 

- Jak gets mad when Ratchet says he'd rather 'have the bolts' (Unless Ratchet is over-cocky, I don't know why he'd say that?) THEN, after Daxter hands Jak the gun, Clank replies, "Now, now, I am sure there is a reasonable solution we can arrive at.", and Ratchet replies, "I think this is plenty reasonable... Let's settle this..."

and

- Toro asks why Heihachi isn't old... Heihachi gets mad as he thinks they 'call him old'... He then decides, "Oh yeah, he called me old... I'm going to kill him..."

- Big Daddy gets 'mad' at Sackboy because Little Sister thinks he's cuter than Big Daddy... Big Daddy wouldn't get mad over that if he were taken directly from his game... That's ridiculous...


I mean, it's like... they just get overly mad and become rivals over silly, small name-calling, or a very VERY small action or something, which is ridiculous, and we all know that if they were real, they (especially 'heroic' characters like Ratchet) wouldn't fight someone over name-calling...


I just think that's a bit childish... then there's "SpaceFlix", which is a joke to "Netflix"... They really went all-out with the 'Dora the Explorer-esque-childish' dialogue as well.

There are many possibility's, it can be hard to pick one out of many.
Would players be more happy with interesting or typical rivalry's?

Whole point of the game, err...?

I'm just saying, those comments, "SpaceFlix", are like child-comedy. It's not funny. It's kinda of stupid...

And the characters get mad over something so small and decide to fight because they called them a 'jerk'? It's ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I'm so psyched for the game, but they really should had gone deeper with the sayings...

I mean they use the words "P-issed" and "Sh1111t" in this game, sooo why can't they stop cheesin' it up, you know?

I'd just think they'd need a LEGITIMATE reason to fight. It's like a grade-school thing here... "You're a meanie!" "I'll show you!" - Fight begins... ugh.

Lemme try to rationalize these for you. Most of these fights pray on characters emotional weaknesses. Like, Jak & Daxter aren't fans of being called worthless, as is Heihatchi with his age, and Big Daddy with his attachment to his Little Sister.

So when Kuro insults Heihatchis mental state or jokes about his age, it's going to upset him. Or when Big Daddy feels like the Little Sister is throwing him aside, it's going to upset it. It seems that most of the writing will be "straw that broke the camel's back" scenarios.

And as for the Spaceflix line, that's just the sense of humor that Rachet & Clank games have. It wouldn't be a Rachet & Clank story without a few silly puns or lame jokes.

Have you seen the rival matches in SF X Tekken? The reasons they fight are even more ridiculous than these. It's all in good fun.

I think every character has anger management.

1) Nobody would fight over being called "Worthless", let alone a protagonist of a game. 

2) Kuro doesn't exactly 'call him a name', but it really shows Heihachi's anger problems.
3) Big Daddy has no 'legitimate' emotions. He's a guy, sifted and spliced to a costume, with an all-new mind-set. If this were Bioshock, he wouldn't get 'mad', let alone at something as silly as that, you know?
