PS All-Stars Bosses we Want Instead of Polygon Man

Today Sony revealed that Polygon Man would reprise the role of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale’s big final boss. So what does the Daily Reaction crew of Seb and Dan make of the news, and who would we want instead? - PSLS (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

Sephiroth or Liquid Ocelot would have been my choice.
TrendyGamers  +   769d ago
Sephiroth would have been awesome.

Anyway, the boss was just announced and people are already complaining....
You DON'T have to know who Polygon Man was. Just like I didn't know wtf the hand I was fighting in SSB was, which didn't "represent" Nintendo games all that well either.
How many people even knew or remembered that hand from old Kirby game over screens?

it would be nice to have a character we all know be the final boss.
and no one knew what that hand was in smash brothers... plus smash brothers has nothing to do with how disappointed people are with having polygon man as final boss.
MaxXAttaxX  +   768d ago
Polygon Man has come with a vendetta against all PlayStation characters because he was once a short lived mascot who was forgotten. So now he's back with a vengeance.

Again, we DON'T really have to know who he was. No one would even be complaining if this was an entirely original character. But at least he's got a bit of a back story.

i always thought the hand was from any game with a hand for the cursor... like FF games, the start of 90% of every old game. i thought it was genius

Why though...they belong to a certain franchise, if Cloud was in it for example then the boss would be more personal to him but with Polygon Man it's personal to all of them because he's not from a franchise.

It's why the Master Hand in SSB is a great choice instead of just having someone like Bowser as the final boss.

Having Sephiroth without Cloud seems odd, but I can't say I don't agree that would be a better choice.
sinncross  +   769d ago
I agree with the idea that perhaps singling a certain IP for a boss may not be the best idea.

That said, I prefer Polygon Man over a completely brand new, unrelated to Sony, character.

You have to be the first person I've seen suggest him lol. Pretty crazy, considering how awesome fighting it was.

A Giant Miyamoto Head.

Because we all know who the true threat to Sony is.
GreenRanger  +   769d ago
They were going to make me the final boss but they changed it because they wanted people to be able to finish the game.
nevin1  +   769d ago
The Green Ranger is a boring character.
iMaim  +   768d ago
I don't see how having the ability to summon a robot Godzilla with a flute/knife is boring.

Dude, whenever you saw the Green Ranger show up in an episode, you knew someone's shit was going to get ruined. Like Goldor and Rita saw him show up and you could hear an "Uuugggh" and then you should see bad guys in the background cancelling hotel reservations because they knew they would not be at the beach this weekened, they would be in physical therapy re-learning how to walk.

Not only was Tommy was better at fighting than the other Power Rangers, but he summoned a huge fricking dragon with a FLUTE. That. Is. Bad. Ass.

It's like "Oh man guess i'm in trouble *flute*dododoo-dooo-doo~ OH SNAP THAT's A DRAGON. The Dragon has a drill for a tail. His TAIL is a DRILL, it's like holy crap how MUCH awesome could they cram into this guy?

You know how the other 5 had their wimpy robots combine into the Megazord? The Green Ranger's Dragon was roughly as powerful as the Megazord, so basically, he was equal to all of the other 5 combined. It's like a 5 Ninja Turtle showing up who rocks more than Donnie, Raph, Leo, and Mikey put together. The math is mind-blowing so don't try to get the exact figures; we don't need any more aneurisms in this thread.

Polygon Man may not be the 'FINAL' boss. Remember in almost every video game there is usually someone else pulling the strings. So maybe someone is pulling Polygon Man's strings....maybe.

ZeroChaos  +   769d ago
Honestly I believed for a while that Kevin Butler would be the final boss with his pew pew attack :P

But this sounds very well thought out as a main baddie and has purpose to what all the mascots are fighting together.

You know very well that who ever they choose as the final boss NO ONE would be satisfied. People would have complained and had contradicted it no matter who it was.Everyone would be 'You choose blank, why did you choose blank when blank would have been much better.
xursz  +   769d ago
No one? Polygon man fits the role perfect. He's the forgotten mascot who's been shoved to the darkest corner of playstation history. I would've been dissapointed if the final boss was a final boss from another game.
hkgamer  +   768d ago
for some reason i am really mad... but maybe its because I am not from US.
seems like I am missing out on the whole joke.

Y_5150  +   769d ago
What about we have the greatest choice for a boss...Crash Bandicoot! In the end, you'll be fighting the former mascot of Plastation. That would shock me if that's true.
Kingthrash360  +   769d ago
The infamous YELLOW LIGHT of DEATH or Kevin Butler
braydox21  +   766d ago
well it does look like polygon man has yellow eyes perhaps a yellow light of death beam attack that comes from his eyes. that would be cool

Polygon Man is a perfect final boss. Everyone can just shut up.

Um spoiler much? I even avoided this article on ign -_____-
Omar91  +   768d ago
it all makes sense now. But I just wished polygon man looked cooler lol
alecman  +   768d ago
The final boss should be Justin Beiber.
iHeartHelloKitty  +   768d ago
Xbox 360 would be Marcus and Master Chief vs the Red Ring of Death! Epic. As for Nintendo SSB the boss was a hand. I thought it was just the Power Glove idea going crazy on you!
Spacemagic  +   768d ago
Well, thats pretty fucking shitty that they revealed the boss in the title. I have avoided reading about it because I wanted to be surprised. Thanks a lot fucking dickhead website.
