Characters that should not have been

Now that we know who all the combatants are

which character inclusions were unecessary on such a tight roster (just because it's 20, otherwise cool to have 'em)

 

2 Coles (Evil cole should've been sequel or DLC) would've preffered a Kat instead

Fat Princess (really what the **bleep**)  Instead of the tomb raider

Emo Dante instead of regular Dante (Capcom's fault) no one likes that version over the old one

Raiden instead of Snake (again Kojima's fault) If you're gonna have 1 MG representative, it goes w/o saying

 

I'm cool with the rest (maybe a little shaky on big daddy, but it's fine)

I'm really happy Nariko made it though

 

My pre-order stands and won't be changed, there's always room for expansion/improvements

I'm just glad they kept the roster small and really made the characters unique as opposed to throw in a bunch of broken, uninspired, unpolished (fighting wise), repetitive, half-assed characters

 

 

I'm sure if they could they would've added more, but it takes work. So, just be grateful...I know I am

I could argue the Coles and FP, but you're not randomly bashing them for no reason, so there's no point to do so. Kudos to your last sentence.

Fat Princess is one of the highest selling PSN games of all time. And unlike Lara she is owned by Sony.
Owned Sony characters >>> Non Owned. This is pretty known logic by now

Raiden is not representative of the metal gear series. He is from revengance, comepletely separate from Solid. It was not Kojima who OKed it, it was platinum games.

Platinum is only a developer.  They have no say in whether somebody gets in or not.  The publisher, and the IP holder, which is Konami, has the say.  That's like saying Insomniac could've said no to R&C and then SuperBot couldn't've put them in the game.

Raiden is from revengance. Try harder? Really? If it was raiden how he looke in mgs2 sure. If he looked like he did in mgs4 sure. But he is revengance raiden. Platinum are the developers but they had a say on it. Hence te reason why the developer was **bleep** off after the supposed "leak".

Except they wouldn't've allowed Raiden in at all if they had a say.  Platinum expressed issues with the presentation of Raiden, but Kamiya called the game a flat-out ripoff and said he didn't want his characters in a rip-off.  Meanwhile, Raiden's in the game regardless of his opinion.

Yeah, its Revengeance Raiden, but he began on the PS2 with Metal Gear Solid 2.

 

Just because Platinum is making it doesn't mean his past is somehow completely negated. Jeezus, that's probably why you hate the new Dante and are sworn to killing off a company that can barely hold its own legs up with two titles that were actually quite amazing but overshadowed by pissdribble like Call of Duty.
