Glad to see that I'm not the only one here who's thinking positive; I'm also glad to see that the amount of negative posts have calmed down.
Right now I can say from seeing this DLC, all I see is improvement in the future DLC. Gameplay wise, the DLC has been getting better and better despite if you enjoy the character's choice or origin. So when "your" dream character(s) make it in the game SSM will have more experience and a better chance to make that character a character of quality.
Also, why is it initialed SSM. Shouldn't it be SMS? Santa Monica Studios? Studio Santa Monica? Santa Studio Monica?
Did you watch the long gameplay video on ign ninja?
Yeah did you? What makes him like Cole? Just because he has lightning? The only same move they'd have is to shoot the tiny little bolts but other than that he doesn't really play like Cole at all.
