Hey guys! It’s me, ThatDamnNarwhal. I do want to apologize for not being on recently and being super slow and late to new things and posts, but I’m trying to get back on the forums! And hello to you newer members who came since I left, I love how big this community is getting! So after my small break and playing the BETA I’ve decided to finally revive my older threads and make some newer ones but instead I’ll make one giant master post. Oh man this is going to take forever. Also on a side-note, I started making posts a while back when there was small hope of it going in the release so my current ideas will be for future DLC’s, patches, updates, ect. Starting time Wednesday, August 8th, 8:40 PM.
Edit: This is a suggestion/idea post, not official data/leaks.
I made this post awhile back wondering if they were going to have alternate skins in the game and then I threw out a few suggestions on what skins should apply to characters. Many did not have hope and figured that different colors for characters would be the only way to go. I was very pleased to see that alternate skins were confirmed for the pre-order. I hope to see some more added in, especially some on the large list I made. If there is anything I’d want to promote the most on skins is holiday / special event skins and more never before skins by Playstation All-Stars.
More Game Modes!
I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with the current game modes. I’m just one of those people who like variety in just about everything, so why not have a few different unique modes? Maybe some classic modes most fighting games have? Or things that have never seen before? It’l help break some of the “Super Smash copy” complaints.
This is another suggestion that isn’t as simple but would be amazing. Most console games never do much with events, just PC games. It would be cool to see PSABR offer exclusive skins for the holidays and events like Little Big Planet does. Like if it were Christmas then they all get these christmas based outfits with hats and candy canes and all. Or if it’s PSABR birthday and all the characters get this awesome Playstation exclusive looking outfit. Or maybe they can change things up like Killing Floor did for Christmas.
Speaking of events, it would be pretty cool to see some community events like if they had a contest for best skin design from a fan gets it turned into an official skin and they get it for free, or how like LBP used to give crowns exclusively. Or maybe some official Playstation All-Star competitions. Community events are always loved and appreciated and rarely seen in console games, usually just PCgaming. You know what can really support this factor? The fact that Superbot can update anytime they want without even you knowing. So you can wake up and, oh hey! Look everything has changed for the holidays, the hud and everything! New temporary modes! Woah this is amazing!
Okay this is a crazy idea but what if, instead of putting up character by character in DLC, why not just hold them all for major character DLC's consisting of 8-10 characters and a new story mode!? These Major DLCs, expansion packs, would be like an extension which would add more characters, levels, stories, unlockables and such. I'm not saying to throw off the idea of minor DLC, they can always sell characters skins and such and maybe some single characters here and there, but giant DLC packs would be awesome! What do you think? This could also add to my holiday and event idea.
Unlockables give players another reason to play and keep on playing. Unlockables allow players to have bragging rights over other players. Now what can unlockables include? Well we can all dream it’d be major things like PSclassic digital copies but thats asking a bit much.. Maybe PSN avatars and PS3 themes, because that would be amazing. But for some simpler things, the game would most likely have things like unlockable characters, character skins, character bio, soundtrack, artwork, modes, ect. For an example. After you play and beat the first appearance of the Dreamscape level in the story mode you unlock level creator. Or for a zombie survival mode you can unlock zombified skins once you hit a certain round, and the ability to make a custom zombie level. Characters like Juliet from Lollipop Chainsaw or Leon from Resident Evil could be unlockables for the zombie mode as well. As long as there is a challenge.
The best part! Benefits! As in, “Why my ideas would be good for us the fans and the developers”. Well a major benefit would be that these ideas would open up a lot more for DLC so there would be more things the developers could do to make a little extra cash. I’m sure that alternate skins are already going to be sold off as DLC. The zombie mode could open up DLC opportunity as well, such as more stages. The stage creation would allow the developers to sell more stage objects, music, backgrounds, textures, ect.
Now how would my ideas benefit the community? Well it would show some more love between the devs and the community if we started having some community events and if some more community ideas got in. But these ideas would also bring the community closer together and much more to do in the game and out of the game ( fanart wise and talking of the game ). I personally feel that the ideas I stated would put the game a little more above than Super Smash Brothers by offering never before seen things and much more to offer.
What do you guys think? Anything to add? Anything to say? Negative/Positive feedback? My original posts on these were much longer, but they were taken out when the forums updated.
Threads I enjoy and do not want to die or get hidden by massive amounts of useless and clone posts.
And the posts in the grey box in the main thread page.

Glad to be back guys! This post isn't as large as I wanted it to be like my original posts but it'll do for now. I feel like I am missing so much it's driving me crazy. But yeah, I'm back. Although I am going to have trouble posting since this weekend but don't think I'm gone again.

a game with 4 player cant do events like killing floor. if they do 2 superbot 2 player huh?
Why not? I don't mean an event exactly like killing floor, I mean like how Killing Floor did all of those sweet changes and events for holidays.
