I kind of just said that... It really blew me away that Geoff Keighley said nothing at the time though. I assume that was part of the deal to get the exclusive reveal though.

Also, that first picture in your article was actually a hint towards parappa I believe, which is why the dog treats are there.

the more you know

Omar - "what are you guys doing? Why did you get rid of crash!"
Game devs - "we wanted to put in evil Cole so we had to get rid of everyone else the fans wanted"
Omar- "Oh nice, good idea. I didn't think of that"

Pretty cool hint, actually!

Or a flimsy excuse to cover up that you eat dog bacon.

 

Tonester, way to miss the point of the article!

 

Cheesus crust this board needs a quote feature.

You hit "reply" on the message you want to quote, and then in the top right of the text box, there is a button that says "quote". you hit that and it quotes the message you hit "reply" on.

You can't do it on the mobile Site though, it's stupid.

Man that's needlessly complicated. Thanks though.

I actually agree about the characters. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like the characters on All-Stars roster, but there's not really any iconic characters of the past on there besides Parappa and Spike and I guess Jak & Daxter. But...where are the other characters that are REALLY huge icons for Sony like Kratos is?

The reason Nintendo characters/mascots seem so much more iconic/legendary/etc. is because they've been around like twice as long as PlayStation. Not to descredit them at all, seeing as I have some fond memories of the NES, but how long has Nintendo been around versus PlayStation? It's not really a fair fight to begin with. Having said that, AS A PS FAN, I love the characters I'm familiar with (Kratos, Drake, Cole, Sackboy, Raiden, etc.). As far as I'm concerned, this game doesn't have to be iconic to 'outsiders' because it's not geared towards them to begin with. For those that the game does appeal to (PS fans), this is a dream come true (at least for me).

Hello all,

 

I am the writer of the article being posted. First of all I would like to thank you all for the glowing compliments. Especially the guy that said I should "be punched in the stomach." Certainly a rational response to an editorial you didn't agree with.


If you get all the way through the article (which I'm SURE you all did before posting), you'd see that I compliment the game throughout the entire article. And even admit my own faults and biases at the end of it.

 

But I admit, I said "Smash Clone" so please throw all reason out the window and call it "the worst article I've ever read!" I'm sure Sony wouldn't want anyone to associate their fond memories of Smash Bros. with a game that clearly went out of its way not to mimic it.

 

Thank you for your time.

 

Love,

LaserLemming


I actually felt guilty about that comment, I was going to remove it due to my terrible morning grouchiness but other things got in the way. I apologize for my irrational behaviour. However, I did read your article from start to finish and I still don't agree with it, but hey, good show with not raging like most other journalists. =D
