Re: Oddworld Inhabitants wants Abe PlayStation All-Stars inclusion

I think Abe really has the potential to be an interesting fighter in this game, despite all of the complaining.

That is because I think, that Abe actually would have a good moveset:

(some moves already were mentioned)

- He can throw stones, grenades (think thats more powerfull than Sackboys jellyball)

- He can slap, fart and roll: these would be his melee skills...he could roll into other fighters quite like Sly and the fart is just epic

(since this is a fighting game, they surely would have to make Abe a bit more aggressiv, but I wouldn´t have a big problem seeing Abe slapping more than once or even kicking Kratos in the nuts)

-He could use the Bird Portal to either summon other Oddworld creatures or use it himself to teleport to an other spot on the map

-He could use landmines

-He can become invisible

-His super level 1 could be him drinking Soulstorm Brew and then killing others with an explosive fart

-He could ride the Elum in his super level 2, which could be quite like Fat Princess riding the chicken

-He can transform into the Shrykull in his super level 3, slaughtering everyone he touches

-An other option for a super level 3 could be Abe chanting and controlling a random player and use the controlled players

level 3 instead. When Abe´s super ends, the controlled player explodes/dies. 

These are just some ideas and I am sure Superbot and Oddworld Inhabitants would come up with more creative ideas, so I really see no reason Abe not being in this game.

Besides, it would just be awsome farting on an other player and hear Abe laughing afterwards Smiley Very Happy

Here's someone using some creativity

 

Plus who said Superbot couldn't add moves like a punch or a kick. It's all in the mind of the developers and how they want to portray the characters, I'm sure a balanced moveset for Abe could be figured out pretty quickly, especially by the people who are making the game

Just because a character isn't a strong fighter doesn't mean they can't be in a game like this. Someone mentioned Pheonix Wright, which is a great example. Abe could trip and stumble around for his melee attacks.

I find it stupid to be honest, that people say he isn't a fighter or doesn't have the moves etc.. That's plain bulls*it , because SuperBot has already proven that they can make a fighter out of every character! For example: Fat Princess is a flag in her game, but SB did a great job on making her a fighter. So yes, they can make a unique character out of Abe Smiley Wink

Another Zeo quote: ''They should really have chosen a different roster''

Wow, talk about showing a lack of imagination. If you'd been asked to come up with a roster for PSASBR before ever hearing about it, do you think you'd be able to come up with a moveset for Fat Princess? Do you think you'd have predicted that Sackboy would be performing german suplexes with Grabinators? I'm doubtful and even more than I would've been because of your attitude towards the idea of Abe in the game.

Let's think about all the things Abe could use in the Abe's Oddysee/Exoddus games. The slap. The explosive farts. The grenades. The meat to summon Paramites. Elum. The Shrykull! And, of course, possession. He doesn't even have to possess another player; imagine summoning a Slig to gun down and whack the other opponents and send Slogs after them. At a push, Abe could even set landmines or summon Scrabs. They were both in the game, even if Abe had no control over them himself. You could say the same about Sackboy summoning fans from midair, strictly speaking.

The attitude towards some characters on this board baffles me. Defending Big Daddy but ruling out Abe as "more of an XBox character towards the end anyway". He was in one game on the XBox, in spite of the fact that's where the series continued, but two games on the PS1. And Stranger's Wrath was just released on the Playstation Store anyway! And I noticed people dismissing Crash too, saying things like "oh, his games were never really that good anyway" ... yeah, everyone knows how sincere that statement is ... but then lobbying for characters like Dart who was never a significant figure in Playstation's history and would play like a second-rate FF character! Only using magic when in Dragoon form? Please no ...

The point is that turning your nose up at significant figures -- Abe, for example -- just comes across as immature. Are you that blinded by fanboyism that you don't think the roster would be improved by an actual Playstation All-Star?


AMEN! By god I think you and I could be best friends!

Re: Oddworld Inhabitants wants Abe PlayStation All-Stars inclusion

i hav a good moveswt for abe!
key:
s=square t=triangle o=circle x=x v=down >=direction ^=up
moveset:
s- slap
>s - run into someone like he does walls in oddysee
^s- i cant think of one..
vs- rolling slam (just rolls into someone)
t- rides elum and barges with him similar to fortesques shield slam
>t- slingshot (im pretty sure the forest guys had em so why cant he)
vt- fart followed by a prompt hehehe
^t- teleports upwards using his bats/doves/pidgeons. could be a third jump or a dodge
o- pulls lever and electric gate appears/activates infront of him. (causes a stun)
>o- throws little black grenade far, it bounces and explodes on contact
vo- activates one of those little green/red flashy mines that spins and always killed me...
^o- throws grenade high up and explodes upon landing (no bounce)
^x- high vertical jump
>x- running jump
x- small hop (what he does when u only press triangle in the other game)
and then for supers i was thinking a million different possibilities and combos for the first one but decided any of the following would be good.
super1: shouts "geddem" and a slog runs out and jumps on closest player(s)
OR
super1: the electric gate idea perhaps instead of it being on o
OR
super1: pulls a lever and a trapdoor opens infront of him and close players will fall thru an die
OR
super1: meat chomper kills someone. loved those meat chompers
for super2: i thought the shrykull would be a good idea and it could zap anyone nearby similar to how evilcoles lvl 2 works
for super3: i thought possession was in order. he could really instead of possessing someone could sort of "steal" the lvl 3 super o the person closest to him, sending out a clone of yhe character (eg. kratos) to run around with his sword of olympus killin everyone including the kratos abe copied. idk id have to explain it in person but i think itd be a good one. either that or abe just copies wveryones supers and runs around with the sword of olympus himself or does a parappa rap himself. thatd be sooo funny. especially if he farted. let me know what u think.
