Mock Character Select Screen and CSS Critisism

[ Edited ]
22 replies 940 views Edited Aug 22, 2012

Hey Guys, Today I looked at the official PSASBR Character Select Screen (as of the Gamescom Demo which can be seen in THIS video), and I really didn't like the look of it. I mean, it gets the job done, but it really doesn't do the game justice in my opinion. And again, I know this isn't the final product, and it's most likely going to change, so some critisism could possibly help. 

 

First of all, the boxes that represent players 1 through 4 are a little too big. There needs to be a good ratio between the player boxes and the section boxes. Another thing I REALLY, REALLY wanted but didn't see was a Random box. Third, I found that the character art in the Player boxes was too close up. Fourth of all, on the official CSS there things by each player that show a controller, and say Player 1, or Player 3, etc. It would be better if it had multiple PSN sign in ability, said the PSN ID, and showed their unique PSN Avatar. And finally, it just needed some more polish (not that I'm much of an artist myself).

 

So here we go. This is my attempt to show you all what I (mostly) want out of the character select screen for PSASBR.

What do you all think? Any suggestions on how to improve it, or what you think needs to be in the final official CSS would be great.

A quick update to my mock CSS. Added PSN avatars, and PSN IDs. 

Any thoughts?

This is really cool. And all the BEST characters are in there. I would love to see Lara, Crash, and Spyro in this game! And the hexagon thing is cool, but I can see it being difficult to navigate the menus so this probably won't be what they go for in the end.

 

 

You'd be going right and it would jump up and down between characters. Going diagonal would just be a mess lol. But cool concept.

Yeah, I wanted to make it feel unique with the whole hexagon thing, and keep it in the theme that they have been going with.

But I FULLY undersand how that would be a pain in the **bleep** to navigate. I'll experiment around, and see If I can keep the theme, but make it a little more traditional.

I'm not quite sure who the guy between Spike and Dante is...

Regardless, very good roster, I'd definitely buy this game! You'd just have to put Cloud and Sora in to please all the other fans Smiley Tongue Not that I really mind...

Nice touch on the avatars and such by the way. (Just promise me you'd make the Traveller from Journey DLC? Maybe Kat too Smiley Tongue )
