The games itself weren't a bad idea, although I'm not leaning towards Pain so much. Like I said, I see levels more than characters out of them but maybe they'll surprise us by taking characters you would not expect to fight at all.
Yea I was thinking of the downtown level in PAIN and I though o this would be a really kool level in the game. Lots of distructable things kinda reminds me of Onett from Brawl and could easily play the same.Then I thought o so how would Javis fit in there, well how did Fat princess fit? Well he definenly a high flyer character and his "gliding moves" would have to be good like the cannon ball, or the axe spry thing. He could have a can of axe on him a he sparys it. his fighting skills would have to be not to good because he obviously is a more clummsy character. Or having flinging grab moves or falling attacks. But hes really fun to watch get hurt lol
I agree that PAIN could make a great level theme, complete with characters from the game being flung at you from a distance. Personally, I think Jarvis, Hung Lo, Cookie, Scurvy Dogg, and all the other Pain characters would do much better as stage obstacles than as game characters. That way you would still get to watch Jarvis get hurt, but without having him to take up an extra character slot that could be filled with, let's say Dante, instead.
As for the stage itself, I imagine Downtown with a slingshot in the far distance flinging characters at you. As with the Metropolis stage, it'll start off sunny, but as the game progresses, the weather illens, and the town gets sieged by either Helghast soldiers or Resistance Chimeras, turning the stage into a crumbling battlefield.
For a Pain level, I can see everything you guys listed off so far. I can also see the giant bowling ball come in or maybe the train going in here and there. I can just see destruction. But if we are talking about destruction. One level with just complete madness and destruction I'd love to see is MotorStorm: Apocalypse. That would probably be the craziest most intense level but I feel as if asking for that is too much considering the time that would have to be spent making it and loading it up... A simple level to suggest would be LocoRoco, right? xD
Heres my list of characters that i think should be added to the list:
Kain- Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain
Jersey Devil- Jersey Devil
Squall Leonhart- Final Fantasy VIII
Volnutt- Mega Man Legends
Asura- Asura's Wrath
Suezo- Monster Rancher
I'm not sure about adding characters from well known fighting franchises to the game. I guess getting one character to represent Tekken, one to represent Mortal Kombat, and so forth, could work - but why bother? I don't really have any winning arguments, but to me, it just feels wrong.
I've called the discussion "Characters WE Would Like to See Included", so hey, I'll add him to the list.
Ppl need to think about more sony exclusive characters then going third party crazy.
We need to stay rational.
