I wouldn't be bothered by it, it would just be nice to have. The new Spike looks kind of better anyways, but you can't go wrong with the classics.

But haha, I think Jake is a better name than Buzz. Buzz reminds me of Buzz Lightyear. We'll see if Jake is in or not, it would be cool if he was. But I think Specter would be *bleep*ing awesome to have too.

I'd definitely like more than 1 playable character from each game. Especially from first party games. Allstars needs more first party characters - or at least characters that used to be exclusive - so that it it can prove it's capable of a good roster without third party characters. Not that I have a problem with third party, but it seems kind of pointless calling it Playstation Allstars when a lot of the characters aren't exclusive or don't have a strong to the PS3 in some way. Also:


Lol. I guess SCEE and SCEA didn't like each others voice actors.

It also needs more non-main characters. So far, most characters that have been announced are a main character from a series.

JacqueseVonRIP: The PAL/Europe acting/whatever for Jake and Spike sounds terrible. Buzz/Jake sounds like a girl to me. I dunno if I'm just saying this because I'm American, but damn.

But yeah, there needs to be more than one rep from each game, if they DO have more than one rep that would work. I would really love to see Crash and Spyro, but even if they aren't exclusive anymore they need to ask the companies for the rights and all of that. I don't believe Sony owns Crash/that company anymore does it? MICROSOFTTTTTT!!!!!

But yeah we need more first party characters. But a few third party characters isn't bad!

Yeah I'd at least like to see some of the "sidekicks" and whatever in the game. But of course they're gonna put the main characters in first, because well....they're the main character.

But like I said, they need some sidekicks and villains even.

True. Every game has it's characters that we like even if we don't play as them. It would be nice to have them in Allstars. As I said above though, I heard there are supposed to be companions in the game, so I assume certain characters will be reserved for those.

It's probably a regional thing. When I heard the US voice acting I thought it sounded really cheesy
I wonder why they needed different voice actors for 2 different english versions of the game though.

Crash and Spyro were huge on the Playstation though, so they'd fit perfectly with the concept. I'm not sure if Microsoft owns Crash, but Naughty Dog sold off Crash some years back I think.
I don't have a problem with third party characters. It's mainly that I would like to see more characters with a strong relationship with Playstation. No offence meant to new Dante or Big Daddy.

The game would be pretty dull if they didn't add villains. Perhaps they want to get most of the hero types out of the way first. Miju told me each character will have a rival, so I'd guess there will be villains soon enough... if they do get Crash and Spyro, they can really milk those franchises for characters (especially villains).

JacqueseVonRIP: Spikes voice isn't THAT bad, but Jake's is terrible. But tbh, the English voices aren't that great either to me, lol.

Also of course I know that Crash and Spyro were huge back then, I used to play all those games 24/7. I was just saying what happened to Naughty Dog selling Crash and stuff, and I'm not sure if it was to Microsoft or not. The Crash games still come out for Sony/Nintendo though. But eh, I think they will get Crash and Spyro in somehow, it wouldn't be right without them. But yeah there needs to be a lot more first party characters than third party characters. I don't mind third party characters at all, but there can't be like 20 of them I suppose.

But ah yes, that makes sense adding in all the heroes first, and that should of been obvious to me. They could add in soooo many villains. The roster could be REALLY big if they wanted it to be. I just hope they don't limit it to like one villain from each game, even though each game has like ONE main big villain a lot of other lesser villains in the games could work too. But of course they shouldn't over do it and put like 5 villains or heroes from the game in.

You know who I thought about? Croc and Death Jr.





I'm not sure about Croc, but Death Jr. would be *bleep*ing perfect for this game. I hope he gets in. @_@'

Also Razputin/Raz from Psychonauts as a third party character would be perfect too, I would LOVE if they put him in too. He is perfect for this kind of game. To be honest, I see him as more of a Sony rep than Xbox rep for some reason.



Razputin ^

I dunno if they want to be like Smash Bros. and make new games with a couple of new characters. But screw that, add everyone in this one game!

Edit: Also I don't know why, but I feel like a Jet Set Radio character would fit as a third party character too.

Beat:

Croc would be a great addition to the roster, but unfortunately I never played Psychonauts or Death Jr. They look right for the job though.

Edit:
No, never played that game either. Looks like I'm not as great a gamer as I thought.


Below, a concept. A little crude, but you get the idea. I don't have Photoshop.

I want to see Captain Quark, Lady/Mary and another Tekken character or two.

OMG I totally forgot about Croc. Those games were awesome. I would love to see him in but I really doubt it. I think there were only 2 Croc games, and he hasn't been around for ages.

Crash and Spyro will surely be in...

Not really characters I want/expect to see (since I never played any of their games), but I found a whole bunch of PS exclusive games. Here:







Oh I almost forgot

JacqueseVonRIP: OMG I FORGOT ALL ABOUT KINGSLEY'S ADVENTURE! I still have that game for PS1. Dang, now I want to play it haha.

He would definitely be cool to have in the game, Jersey Devil would be cool too (good game).

But I feel like most of the old characters we want in are forgotten about or weren't that popular. Which sucks because a lot of these characters would work so well.

I kind of want to see some lesser known characters get in though, it would bring in more people to buy the game. Because some people have played a lot of the lesser known games. Of course the most popular characters are going to get in first, but yeah.

Given the possibilities with DLC, I wouldn't be surprised if SuperBot set up polls or something in the future asking for people's suggestions on DLC.
