Top 5 Characters We Want in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

"It seems everyday we get more information about the upcoming brawler PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and personally, I can’t wait to get my hands on the finished product. Developer SuperBot has already revealed plenty of characters that will be featured in the game, and you have to wonder how many characters the company has yet to officially release to the public and if there will be any post launch characters added to the game. As far as the list goes currently, it’s a very impressive list that contains many great characters from both first and third party titles. Still, we can’t help but have nerd arguments about who’d we would like to see make the final cut for the entire game, so here are my Top 5 Characters We Want in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale!" -Amanda Dyar (Crash Bandicoot, Industry, Journey, Mass Effect 3, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3, Resident Evil 5, Retro, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure)

Out of all the RE characters to choose from and you choose the Executioner ¬¬
ABizzel1  +   1145d ago
WTF, wouldn't Pyramid Head be a better choice. WHile not Resident Evil he holds more PlayStation rights than Executioner.

Yeah this list kinda sucks tbh. Besides Crash and Spyro (obviously two great choices) the rest are not great. Hows about...
Lara Croft?
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1145d ago
I agree Blastoise, all of those characters would be a great addition to the game.
Would be cool to have Kain as well as Raziel and have a show down!

No Batman? :(
NyGiants7  +   1145d ago
Journey character would be pretty awesome. I'd also like to see some FF7 characters though. Zach, Cloud, Tifa, Barrett, Seph would all be cool.
DrRobotnik  +   1144d ago
I'd rather have the original tyrant or better yet, Pyramidhead from SH2.

Hold on a second while I just go and copy all the suggestions from the hundreds of other articles like this and paste them here.

I'm really surprised no one had mentioned "Claude" from GTA 3... That's who this fox wants to see in Playstation all stars
Relientk77  +   1145d ago
Definitely agree with Spyro and Crash
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1145d ago
Mate... I don't know anyone who disagrees with spyro and crash
LiViNgLeGaCY  +   1145d ago
I disagree about Spyro. I don't see how he would at all fit into a fighting game. Crash, yes.
FACTUAL evidence  +   1145d ago

Guess you didn't play mvc3, did you see how they got amaterasu to work? Spyro would be perfect.

BTW i didn't disagree.

If I see another list or person saying how much they want Crash and Spyro, I'll seriously slam my face into my palm.

People have cried to Superbot hundreds of times about those two chatacters. I think they get it, WE WANT THOSE TWO. Yeah well it's not their say... So please shut up about them.

I want Crash and Spyro too but god, it's getting annoying. We get it. Superbot gets it. There is no point to continue trolling the public about it.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1145d ago
It's just a list dude, chill out. Most people do want Spyro and Crash to join.
Reverent  +   1145d ago
I understand that. But why not use other characters less obvious than those two? I mean, EVERYONE knows that EVERYONE wants them. I just don't think it's worth reminding people things they already know, every moment of the day.

And sorry, my ranting isn't directed exclusively at this article. Just the idea in general.
Moby-Royale  +   1145d ago
I second that Wesker.

This brony needs to chill out.
Reverent  +   1145d ago
I am perfectly calm. I want Crash and Spyro just as much as the next guy. Let me just ask you this... When you click a list article for this game, do you really get excited to see Crash and Spyro on said list and read their reasons as to include them in the game? Even though you've read the exact same thing 20+ times in other lists that are 99% identical to the one you just read?

It just bothers me is all.

@below, that's fine and everything but if the purpose of posting these lists is to share you're opinion, what is the point of it being posted on a website that has already posted plenty of others identical to yours? Granted this list came up with a few other characters that aren't commonly seen in these lists, that usually isn't the case. All I'm asking for is a little creativity in these lists. Stop reusing the same characters you see in every other list. That's it.

Classic N4G though I guess.

Moby-Royale  +   1145d ago
I don't get excited, period.

It's just a list. It's not as if Ign has released list after list, all of which mention the same characters.

This is different people, with common opinions.

I can understand that you want peoples' list to be what you want. I suggest that you make your own list so that people can gripe at you about it.

Have a nice day man.
smashcrashbash  +   1145d ago
Thank you. Nice to see someone still has there head screwed on right here. After you say something a too many times people don't seem to realize it become annoying which is why developers start ignoring your questions after you have asked it a thousand times.
mewhy32  +   1145d ago
Lets face it. This is just a Smash Brothers clone. Just like little big planet kart racing is a mario kart clone.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1145d ago
IMO those are some odd choices except for Spyro and Crash. I mean Executioner would be out of place and what moves would robbed character do? Commander Shepard is not a bad choice though.
b163o1  +   1145d ago
I'd say bomber man only cause he's in both Nintendo and Playstation games. Gotta pay Nintendo a little homage
Parappa  +   1145d ago
I stopped reading at #5. Their other choices can only go downhill from there.
Rhezin  +   1145d ago
yup, definately add pyramid head. Would add the horror genre to the roster.
a411411  +   1145d ago
i wonder if people know that the license rights to Crash Bandicoot and Spyro are in Activision's hands since they were sold to them years ago. Just saying that could be one reason they are such a hassle for superbots.
Soldierone  +   1145d ago
I'm sure Sony is working on it, plus IF Crash is in the game I'd wait till the last minute to say so. The reason being how many articles and other things have you read saying people want crash in the game? You finally give it to them and it will explode for a while, but then people have nothing to talk about or wait for. You keep it under wraps and people pay close attention to every announcement you make, along with creating 50 more "where is Crash" articles lol

Activision isn't even using Crash at the moment. Their latest game flopped, and they didn't touch him since. Spyro on the other hand I could see issues, but not Crash.
carlocgc  +   1145d ago
not excited about vast majority of characters in this game as is, unless they throw in Final fantasy chars im not interested

crash and spyro suck PERIOD none of their games were good except crash karts... there i said it

they should add:

Cloud / Sephiroth / Moogle (personally id go with Moogle)

Razael / Kain (Soul Reaver) not PS exclusive but hey who cares

Grey Fox (MGS1) / Raiden (MGS4) not revengence cuz it looks so cheesy it makes me sick :S
Hudahudahuda  +   1145d ago
Id only want cloud and seph in this to kick thier ass with every other character in the game
superterabyte  +   1145d ago
sir daniel fortesque please if this happens i will guarentee i buy it
9thWonder  +   1145d ago
Commander Shepard is not needed, the game already has enough gun users
NeXXXuS  +   1145d ago
Needs Dart from Legend of Dragoon.
Just the battle system from the game alone is easy enough to make 3 super attacks from. And it's also an amazing and timeless RPG.

kain and raziel from soul reaver
NyGiants7  +   1145d ago
Why not Mega Man? He's had a few games on PS and I can easily see him being in one of these kind of games.
M_Prime  +   1145d ago
You forgot the major hitter from PSX era.. TINY TANK..
Muigi  +   1144d ago
How about sora...riku?
xXBlondieVanHarlowXx  +   1144d ago
Seeing the Executioner Vs. Sackboy would be LOL worthy. Still i'd rather no executioner. Now Pyramid head? maybe...
