Don't know if this has been posted or not but whatever.

NZGamer conducted an interview recently with Super Bot's Omar Kendall concerning Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. Kendall touches on many subjects including the fact that due to the Playstation Vita's screen size, characters will have larger icons over their heads in order for players to keep of their location, among other things.

 

Characters are pretty small on the Vita's screen; does that present any challenges for people playing on that platform?

We noticed that the screen size does create some unique challenges, and we are tackling those in some unique ways. It’s actually something I was working on almost right up until I got on the plane to come out here. We’re doing a bunch of different things, like player indicators that appear above characters heads which will be slightly larger on Vita. In particular, the one that’s above your head will be larger than the rest of the characters, and we’re doing a few different things with player call-outs to make it a little bit easier to find your character on the Vita.

The close proximity that players will hold your Vita screen to their faces does allow us to get away with some things, that playing on a PS3 doesn’t. We’re looking at a couple of unique Vita specific ways to tackle the issues associated with the characters being a little bit smaller.

Hit the jump to read about how Cole and Evil Cole began as one character that either became hero or infamous based on a player's actions.

What's the difference between Cole and Evil Cole?

We knew that we wanted Cole in the game, and we actually created a design that at one point had that neutral starting point and through your actions you turned hero or turned infamous. We also had a proposal for just one Cole. We just made a choice and said we’d have the hero version. But the IP holders felt really strongly that the way that the Cole character manifests, he really is two different guys, and they felt the character would be best served as two different and they really pushed for it. That’s how we ended up with it. 

They really did shape out to be really different characters; the nature of the power and abilities in inFamous blend themselves to very different styles of play. The Hero Cole uses primarily ice and electricity has a very specific play style, and it’s centered to isolating opponents, one on one, and he’s really a jack of all trades. The Evil Cole is more about destruction and throwing chaos into the play space, and really just about causing general havoc. They’re very different and different players will gravitate towards the different Coles.

I had seen someone suggest a similar idea for Cole back before he was announced, and at the time I had thought that it was a bit of a stretch. Turns out that SB did think of that... I only wish they had taken it. It would've been really fun, but then again, we would've just had 19 characters then. Maybe in the sequel.
