Here's my message to SuperBot
Hello SuperBot. I know you guys are having a hard time dealing with the fans ranting about the characters. They're being foolish. The character roster is good, plus, hopefully, we'll get DLC in the future. However, the only complaint I have is the fact that you can't unlock characters.
In the interview with Omar Kendall at EB Games Expo, he stated that the team decided to have every character available from the get-go, but that ruins a huge chunk of excitement. Unlocking characters gives people something to look forward to when they play a story mode or any other mode. Having them available from the start will instantly kill the motivation of playing this game in a matter of weeks/months, (unless online has a leaderboard, then it might last a lot longer). They should have half of the characters available from the start so you can find out their story and unlock their rivals so you can find out their side of the story.
This game has a lot of potential, enough to become Game of the Year even, but the plot of content for the game as well as a major lack marketing and advertisement is destroying this game before it comes out. A majority of people from the PlayStation Official Forums have cancelled their pre-orders for this game already because of these reasons.
Please, for the sake of the fans, change your strategy, because it would suck to have your company shut down because no one bought your first game, that you have been working on for years, or due to a disappointingly low amount of sales. You have 1 month left. Please hurry.
I'm still getting this game on day one, but they have to change their strategy to make this game reappeal to the fans in general.
They're kinda taking this as a serious fighting game. I personally know that the fighter gamers hat are interested in this game want them all unlocked right then. My cousin and his friends do. They're hardcore fighters
eh so am i and my friends, but we all want unlockable characters xD oh well
Personally, Both PSAS and Smash bros need to do the following.
When you first create a profile, have an option to automatically unlock everything or not. that way gamers like me who just want to jump in and play around with everything can, but gamers like yourself who love unlocking things can still have their fun.
Such a simple compromise but of course, neither developer has had the common sense.
And another big complaint people, not you inpaticular, but others, have is a lack of content, which there is tons of. With the slew of online options and the lengthy single player options, combined with the trophy system and the amount of customization, you are looking at a game that is on par with Super Smash for overall content factor. The main difference being unlockables, but there is still TONS of content to explore and play with.
I was addressing another major complaint people are having, I know you did not bash that portion. lol
I edited the original post a bit to try and rectify the mistake.
But honestly even your complaint falls through, what do most fighting games have? Story, online multiplayer, and local multiplayer and training options.
And this title as well as Super Smash both beat out the average fighter in terms of story length and replayability. Plus there are more options for online and multiplayer in general to keep more fans interested longer. So no, it is not lacking in that respect either.
