"He also teased that the final boss for the game’s story mode will be a character that first appeared during the PlayStation 1 era.[Update: Looks like we jumped the gun a bit here and misquoted Kendall. What he actually said during the panel was "if you are big PlayStation fans, then you can probably figure out the last boss."]"
Hahahaha, this cant be true for 2 reasons
1. Negativitron is already featured in a map
2 superbot has already stated "old time fans of the playstation history, will recognize him"
so no... Its prolly polygon man
Mario kills turtles..... kratos kills gods.
looking for some art to look at! look no further!
Didnt they say recognisable to PS1 gamers on the Playstation Magazine interview scan - if anyone can dig it up ?
I don't know about an scan of the interview, but here's the thread where it was discussed: http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation
It can't be Negativitron because of the article in the most recent issue of PSM
I actually remember Omar SAYING,not in a typed interview,he is from the ps1 era & he is not necessarily evil,negativatron tried to make craft world dissapear,seems pretty evil to me & sackboy & his friends defeated negativatron either way
Bently: Don't say it!
Sly: That's how I roll!
We'll just have to wait and see until either SB tells us or Rumba puts up the VO for the final boss. Runba in the GameFaqs forum (I'm guessing most ppl on here didn't even look at it) he states that when he opened up the file for the final boss VO he said that it had a cliche normal final boss voice (or something like that) I'll try to find exactly what he said though.
Here's what Rumba says in the OP:
soooo it took me a while to figure out the thing because 1) i couldn't open the file with software, let alone convert it. but voila i just tried opening it with another software (after a week) and whaddayaknow it worked. and 2) i couldn't recognize the voice AND the lines from the dialogue for i never played the game.
the file is an audio file of the stage. stages have audios for its ambience. for example, Metropolis has the rain sounds, Rival Arena has that eerie sound, etc. etc. and luckily the Boss Arena also has one.
from what i have gathered, the final boss is The Negativitron (sic) from LBP2. for starters, it could be that this guy is just a "mash-up or the giant monster" of the stage, BUT Superbot has referred to the final boss as a singular entity, AND his/its limited dialogue suggests that you need to defeat him. also, it would make sense that he doesn't have his own dialogue-only file because he's not playable anyway. no dialogue needed for picking up items or succeeding in the Trials.
now, i do not know if this will be a multi-stage boss a la Marvel vs. Capcom 2's Abyss (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhtDoA7cjH8) because the Boss Arena music is originally 12 minutes long. the first 6 minutes is the Rival Arena music copy-pasted and the last 6 mins is the one that i put up. so take that with a grain of salt.
BUT, i took a look at Omar's EVO Q&A panel answer (for the very first question, i believe), and he talked about choosing a villain from the representative IPs and at the same time being recognizable by many, which further proved that it may very well be The Negativitron.
my thoughts on it? DISAPPOINTING.
