Mythology All-Stars Battle Royale. A MaxP-S3 Rant.

7 replies 210 views Edited Feb 27, 2013
Hi again.

I've been absent from the forum for some time, but I'm back to rant! DLC Edition! (Disclaimer: I've yet to see IGN's preview and will probably edit this later)

So. The new characters. Let's start with Clarke.

Pretty neat. Pretty expected and I'm pretty excited to try him out.

But let's get to the big guy. Zeus.

Now I've been one to usually side with Superbot, especially when it came to character choice because I understood why they made the decisions they did. But this guy, I don't understand at all.

I do not see Zeus as a PlayStation AllStar... Also, this violates the "one character per franchise" claim.

There is a wealth of characters that would be a better choice for new DLC. There is almost no justification to have Zeus as a playable character.

The next inevitable batch of characters better be amazing to make up for this, Superbot...

As for the stage, I'm really excited for it. The Unfinished Swan was a phenomenal game and I love seeing it represented.

(And side note, the new costumes that just came out are overpriced in my opinion. They should cost a dollar, not two...)

I agree with you Max. I hate how they put in Zeus but I love how they got Issac, IMO I would have waited if they could've gotten someone better than Zeus (Resistance Rep anyone!!). I love the stage although it doesn't look as good as Fearless IMO but still worth it non the less.

Dead Space 2 had some PS3 exclusive content.

Kratos is a Playstation All Star. Zeus is at best a minion tier character as I don't consider "Zeus" a Playstation Icon or character. He's public domain.

We still haven't even gotten Gabriel Logan from Syphon Filter or a Resistance character.

Clarke is just as much an all-star to me as Dante. And he's much more of a PlayStation character for that matter than the freaking King of the Greek Gods.

Oh, I didn't know they were taking over production of the characters too...
My mistake.

(I'm on my phone so I can't edit my original post, but...)

After watching the video on IGN, I've gotten a better look at the characters.

My stance on Isaac stands that he's a pretty sweet character with really nice supers.

As for Zeus... I'm not denying that he's a cool character, I think he'd be really fun to play as (his supers are neat and his moves look sweet), but again, I still find it hard to believe that they couldn't get any other/better character to be a bruiser like Big Daddy.

Of course I'm gonna get them and have fun with them, but they honestly could have found a different bruiser from another game rather than resorting back to God of War.
