With each of the PASBR characters having a unique playing style, picking who you're going to main may be a difficult task. What I want to do with this topic is look at how everyone here approaches playing a game like SSB or PASBR. That being said, I don't want this to become a "Who Will You Main" discussion, but WHY you will main them, or what you would like to see in a potential character to match your style of play.
Personally, I need a quick character who can get in and out of a situation immediately after doing some damage. I don't take the dodge/roll/dance around route, but instead I'm constantly jumping around trying to catch the other players off guard. In SSB, I primarily mained Pikachu (and Young Link in Melee). Pikachu is the epitome of what I like to do in a big brawler. Devastating, potentially stage-clearing attacks, and the ability to get out of a sticky situation immediately. Not a hige arsenal of mega attacks, but just one or two to compliment the little bits of damage he does here and there while zipping around the map.
When it comes to PASBR, at this point I think I'll be maining Sly. A lot of folks are turned off by the fact that he can't block, but that just makes him all the more exciting for me. He's fast, sneaky, and can bust up a group with a big attack and then promptly slip into the shadows. Of course, I have yet to play the game for myself, so all I'm going off of are gameplay videos.
So, let's hear it! What kind of a fighter are you?
My style has always been around high risk, high reward...
Ike from brawl...
Dudley from ssf4 ae
I like to get in and stay in then murder them up close for as long as possible.
I tend to main the slow characters that can seem quick. I have eyes on sir dan but i'm afraid of his weak super 1 and super 2.
I'm also looking at nariko.
fast in and out character with lots of mxups and z good zomning character... was snake/sonic/marth in brawl... also if you dont block/dodge sometimes ur a scrub lol... even the most offensive characters need to.... dont just throw out attacks cuz u can... sometimes its not safe to and u need to block... fif u cant see that plz u need to learn... no offense
I'm a quickster who likes to attack at the right time and is able to get out of the way when needed, I'm a fan of stealth, therefore Sly and if Snake is in the game, those are my main guys.
My Mains: Sly Cooper & Sackboy
My Subs: Ratchet & Clank, Sir Daniel, & Parappa
