I'm glad they took this more light-hearted route. Cross over fighters that try and have serious rivalries tend to over do it in a horrible way since each side has no relation and no real reason to be upset with one another.
Taking a funny approach makes the entire concept an enjoyable gag more than a rivalry while also getting to enjoy the concept of a rivalry.
I'm not not all of the rivarly reasons are going to be anger related. There has to be comedy of course. Maybe Spike vs Parappa will offer that and Toro vs Heihachi half offers that. FP and Evil Cole...what would be the reason~?
... 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..."
- 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.
Welll... i mean for a rivalry so hyped up as Jak's and Ratchet's, i can agree that the reason tehy are fighting should be a bit more...well good.
reminds me of Mortal Komabt when Jax and Johny Cage fought just because Johnny Cage made a sarcastic remark
I'll agree that the Jak & Ratchet rival cut scene is pretty cringe worthy. Hopefully the others will actually have a reason to battle it out. But just expect all of them to suck.
Well Jak and Daxter, manily Daxter likes competion and are always fast to jump into one. So does Ratchet actually. Just look at the intro to Playstation move heroes.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSjrP-HuiRA
Like someone said its a brawler how much detail do you need to make the fight believable.
Its just to have fun and the story with the characters itself are funny, I see no problem here.
