TPG - Some brand new character hints have been released from a credible source. Take a look at them as we list reasons as to who each image is referring to.
How did Paul manage to get those shots? he must be working with someone behind the scenes. Because it looks like it took a lot of effort to prepare those pictures.
He took these himself, as in went out and did everything to get these. I think it's safe to say that Paul has enough inside info to know what he's talking about. I'm sure he had a lot of help. Glad to see that the gun one he had was for Snake
Thanks. It's also worth noting that the 2nd pic have the cars facing each other, another hint at "Crash" Bandicoot being in the game. It's a dead giveaway because normally no one will park like that on a one way parking spot.
I agree Paul's a credible source, he knew loads about the game months ago, even stuff from last year.
Nice finds. I really hope Crash Bandicoot is in the game.
Same here as long as it's the old crash. I wouldn't mind the new crash, but the old crash would bring back some memories.
Ok this what I think so far: The first two are a Gran Turismo stage with day and night cycle and possibly a jungle"outdoor grill" mix with Uncharted or another game with jungles. The cars represent characters though. The first car might be Nariko for her hair. The second pic could represent Cloud facing Sephiroth. The third pic could also be The Last of Us, the two guns resemble those that Ellie and Joel are carrying in the game's cover.
Nice! I would like to see scorpion from MK. Since MK had Kratos why can't it have scorpion.
So far most of the characters associated with that 'Michael' commercial are coming to fruition. So PSAS version of Snake may be 'Old Snake'. His super can be him in the Metal Gear Rex firing a nuke killing everyone. I hope if Crash is in the game that his original form is the one that will be featured. I do not want his new look. XP
wow, thats some deep analysis O_O i would've never guess any of that from those pictures. seriously, how he got 'Little Big' from two guns with bullets spread everywhere perplexes me. good job dude.
David Hayter and Eric Ladin (The guy who did Cole) are on the game's IMDB page
IMDB is not an official source...it's like Wikipedia.
There is turning out to be quite a lot of third party characters in this game, which is good. I just thought that with so many great properties they would use mostly Sony characters.
I'm sure they're still going to use mostly Sony characters, heck from the list of hints the closest thing to a 3rd party character is snake, and if it's old snake then he's exclusive to playstation. I would much rather them keep it low on the 3rd party characters myself. Edit: You have a point, I'm just that used to thinking of crash and spyro as first party since once they became multiplatform, they just weren't the franchises they once were.
Snake is definitely third party, Big Daddy and that Tekken guy are also third party. If Crash is in the game or Spyro, those are both third party as well.
Sniper Wolf or Laura Croft
I highly doubt it's snake. I'm going to put my vote in for Raiden simply to change things up. I feel Snake would be the obvious choice, and he'd have far too many comparisons to his Smash Bros. appearance. Meanwhile, with Raiden's surge in popularity since his appearance in, not only MGS2, but more importantly MGS4 and the upcoming Rising, he'd make for a good weaponized character that, through the preorder costume swaps, would work for Vamp too!
Whos to say the game wont include BOTH! Snake & Raiden! Crash Bandicoot & ratchet/clank is no surprise at all. Chances are, there will be a character from every major 1st party game.
Because of fan backlash. There's no reason to support two 3rd Party characters from the same franshice. Dante...he has to be in the mix too!
Nah I find it hard to believe they would use raiden instead of snake. He may be more popular since mgs 4, but he is NOT as popular as Snake, and not near as big of an icon. I think a lot of fans would be upset if raiden was in there and not snake.
I hope crash is in this game, loved that series on the PS1.
This guy didn't figure this out by himself. He went on NeoGAF and took the research and theories that we posted and acted as if he did it. Also the first car in the picture is a Dodge Charger with a restaurant with no electricity? Get the connection? It's Cole.
They thanked the users from PaulGaleNetwork.... Also what do you mean the first image no electricity? The lights are clearly turned on. Also I'm not to much on cars or at least Dodges, care to share the connection?
"Charger" goes alot with electricity wouldn't you think? ;)
now thats some very nice find! im impressed on how they were able to find clues on those pics
I love teasers like this :D
me 2 btw the two cars can also be cloud strife and sephiroth from FFVII who knows
True! They seem like rivals facing each other!And the other car could be Nariko from Heavenly Sword!
The comment on that site makes sense about it possibly being for Cloud and Sephiroth because the cars match their hair colors and they are facing each other. I really hope it is for them and Crash Bandicoot. Snake would be good, too.
I want Big Boss as SSBB has Solid Snake.
If Big Boss was the final boss in the game, I'd shit myself out of pure joy and excitement.
I would love to have Crash Bandicoot, Ratchet & Clank, and Solid Snake in the game so this is amazing
If Snake makes it in this game than im definitely buying
i want snake, crash, and spyro the dragon please
lol at a Gran Turismo car. anyway, Tomba should be in the game.
I read the whole article and I couldn't seem to find what I was looking for but how exactly do those cars represent what characters will be in the game?
but a gamer like myself, with eccentric tastes in games as their favorite franchises, I would have to have wander(shadow of the colossus), Kat (from gravity rush) abe(from abes odyssey).
Snake Crash and Ratchet? It's getting better and better.
I love Snake and Raiden both so either would be awesome. Though I really really want Cloud and Sephiroth to be in it. Personally for me they define the PS1 era.
Well, judging from the Mosin Nagant, I would say Snake or Big Boss... But I don't know who uses a Walther P5... Any guesses people?
