How can you call any of that bad when all you are going off of is a Stage Select image? They're all opinions anyway. Some people really like them and are looking forward to seeing them in action.

You're probably right, it's not worth criticizing the stages until they've been seen in motion and we can take into account what occurs in the background and what the mash-ups are.

But on a cursory level, those inFamous and Killzone levels look bland as fuck.

Those 3 should be in, I dont get why new Dante will be in the game, the new look is hated by the whole gaming community.
Because this game is aimed primarily at Western audiences, and that's the version of the character/franchise Capcom currently wants to push to Western audiences, like it or not. I doubt it was Superbot's decision.

I like:

Sly stage
Uncharted stage
LocoRoco stage

I am dying to play 2v2, Team Bodyguard, VIP, CTF, 2v2 Elimination

The customization of modes sounds great (Only circle, only triangle, blockable supers)

They put a ton of hard work into making this fun and supporting it with some awesome party features. But I just can't help but be upset with the lack of SoTC. We've all seen to have accepted the lack of Crash and Spyro and Cloud, but I guess Wanderer will be big for DLC.

Also, the Uncharted stage seems to be the only "Moving" stage, and even then, it's just a moving background with slightly moving trucks at best. I wonder if it's even technically possible to have a completely moving stage on something like a Colossi.

For DLC, I am really hoping we see multilayered stages. To me, it seems necessary for FFA that we dont have stages where we are always brawling on top of each other on a fairly flat plane.

The menu image (which have a 2011 date on it), that title fight image, the abscenece of Big Daddy in the roster list and the shoddy art of these different characters makes me think this is just early material which may not end up in the game. I just can't see them putting in Evil Cole when they clearly have a "one character from each franchise" approach, also why would Snake (David Hayter confirmed to be working on All-stars) not be in the roster or minion list if this was up to date?

Well, I think we'll be pleasantly surprised. Plus, the Infamous one is called Alden's Tower....

Can we leave this Dante business alone? If you think there won't be a classic skin you are fooling yourself. Though it would be funny if you had to play the whole story for Dante to unlock. Lol.

Dante's guaranteed an awesome stage at least. The city of Limbo morphing in and out of the demon realm is my guess.

Woah, I haven't seen any Uncharted stage. Are there others I've missed, 'cos I only seen 6 in the OP.

I'm glad I am not the only one that thinks this is all fishy. I may be right, superbot could be trolling all of us. I mean they are fighting game enthusiasts and they know people will mine data from the beta code like they have done in nearly every recent fighting game, so they could have stuffed a lot of early material that has since changed a lot. Remember this game has been in the works for about 3 years.

Do we have a list of these game modes somewhere that I missed?
The more I think about it, the less upset I am.

1.) I planned to main Cole, now there's 2 of him...that can't be bad I guess,
2.) A lot of characters I love are in! Spike, Sackboy, ColeX2, Ratchet, RADEC.
3.) From what I've seen, there looks to be a lot of content in the game that isn't characters, and that'll be the really fun stuff.
4.) We already know online is gonna be sweeet
5.) A lot of other characters seem to make appearances as "minions"
6.) Stages look great
7.) I'm 90 percent sure there's more stuff than the stuff here

I've slept on it, and really I'm okay with everything about this leak except for the character portraits.

The remaining character reveals were pretty reasonable guesses, with Raiden and Sir Dan being the big surprises, and welcome ones at that. It's my birthday today so Spike (the main character of my all-time favorite game) being revealed is wonderful news, even if I associate him more with his classic look. Evil Cole? Anyone who has played inFamous knows evil Cole is a necessary evil, because he's literally a different character with a different personality and fighting style.

Also, I'm by no means a DMC fanboy, but picking his new dark-haired look when the team already revealed that he'll have white hair in that game too, it just feels like a strange choice. Ideally that will be remedied ASAP with alt costumes.

Not much to say about the stages, other than they look nice, and I hope the Locoroco stage involves the stage constantly tilting. It will be exciting to see what kind of crossovers they do with the levels.

Someone should try to do the 2 slots in the upper right corner.

There might be chance for character silhouettes or something.
Yes please. There's no Konami rep is there? There's still hope. :I

I wonder if this includes the new batch of characters that were mentioned before e3.

That was the timestation stage from Ape Escape.

The uncharted stage was probably revised to Stovaway. It takes place on the Uncharted 3 airplane/carrier, so there's probably a decent chance to add Warhawk into the mix.

Recheck OP, Uncharted be there yo!
Oh thanks, looks like I just missed the update lol.

The good...



This is a great scenario for a stage. Probably the highlight set-piece of Uncharted 3. It would be cool if there was a free-fall segment a la Power Stone 2.



Ape Escape representation. Always good.

The bad...



MORE BROWN PALETTES! Eugh, spare me.

Were you just as disappointed for the lack of females in SSB? Or in video games in general?
(as a lead protagonist)
Lack of female representation in any genre but especially games where there can be multiple opportunities for representation (RPGs, fighting games for example.)

If anyone doesn't know who Mr. Zurkon is....

Wow, awesome!

GOD! Was Insomniac good with the comedy or what? They just had to make Resistance (and the lose direction with it) and then Overstrike. What happened to games like this and Spyro? It kills me that we don't have a new platformer by them in this fashion. Same for Naughty Dog. I really loved Spyro and Ratchet more.

You know who I REALLY want? Dr. Nefarious http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAk6E8PHK3E&feature=related

inFamous is rife with potential fighting stages. Alden's tower, the prison, the sewers, ground zero where you fight Kessler...

I hope they're all mashed into a single stage.

Wait, you know that there have been Ratchet and Clank games coming out recently, right? I can't imagine that it's just one development team over at Insomniac.

Dr. Nefarious is pretty great, hahaha. This isn't funny, Lawrence!

Expect more females as DLC or in a sequel. As the fist game in the series they were definitely going for all MAIN characters from video games and well known ones to boot (making the well to draw from quite small), so the time for sub characters is later.

So has superbot or clockwork make a statement yet?
No. I seriously doubt they will. Either way, we will either see characters we know or characters that surprise us at the reveals. We are going to see some kickass gameplay either way.

Those are the old character select portraits from E3. The beta has updated ones. Weird.

Yeah but they are co-op spin offs, not full fledged sequels to the Future series... Ratchet has a lot of games this gen and maybe should take a break, but what a sorely missed opportunity that they didn't add the awesome multiplayer from UYA to future iterations.

Was it you who mentioned scaling it? Cause that would make it awesome :3
Maybe so.



The upper platforms (red arrows durr) which you may jump up on clearly shows there's some space above and the there's an empty space below (blue arrow)

It's called Alden's Tower so it's not that far-fetched :p
