Running Down a Dream: Microsoft’s Exclusive Crossover Fighter

Crossover Fighters are becoming commonplace with Sony's rumored "Title Fight" project in development. Microsoft may be the new kid on the block, but do their waters run deep enough to field a fighting franchise? For your consideration: Microsoft's Exclusive Crossover Fighter and the roster you'll probably never see in your lifetime. (Culture, Fable, Gears of War 3, Halo Series, Monday Night Combat, Shadow Complex, Xbox 360)

You should read this. Yes, you. If only to call me delusional for considering such a premise.

Haha! I tried to so hard to work in the Brad Copter to Capt. Smiley's description, but it was running long. Good additions.

The Aprentace will be cool to see in it with his attitude and awesome powers. Orcs Mist Die is an amazing game, I put 10 hours into it with out playing the DLC

Oh I totally agree.. I perfected it (with regard to achievements) because the gameplay was addictive and the personality of The Apprentice actually made me laugh multiple times. I haven't bought the DLC yet but I'm looking forward to the sequel.

It not an exclusive if you can play it elsewhere
Orcs Must Die (Steam)
Alan Wake (Steam)
Monday Night Combat (Steam)
Fable (Steam)
Jade Empire (Steam)

The point of a "Microsoft Exclusive" fighter would be to have "EXCLUSIVE" characters. So far, half the roster you have would be GUEST CHARACTERS, since the games they're from aren't owned by Microsoft and exist on other platforms.
OH, AND WE NEED MORE HALO CHARACTERS, AMIRITE?
IAmNotAMonster  +   1267d ago
Microsoft Exclusive does not mean "first party" intellectual properties. It means these characters (that may have been developed by third party developers) are available on Microsoft platforms. Yes, Windows PC is a Microsoft platform in the same way the PSP is a Sony Platform. No, Steam is not a platform, it's a digital distribution service that exists on a platform. I can run ROM's of God of War on my PC, but that's not Sony's fault - it's still Sony exclusive IP.

Oh, and more Halo characters? Sure: 343 Guilty Spark, Prophet of Truth, Proto-Flood, Miranda Keyes, Tartarus. There you go. I actually might have included more in the article if they were up to quality, but I had a feeling I would get comments like yours, so I capped it at four.

Are you daft? The point of a "Microsoft Exclusive Crossover fighter" would be to have characters from franchises that are OWNED BY MICROSOFT. Your logic is heavily FLAWED; the PC is NOT Microsoft's platform, and its not the same as the Sony PSP. Sony owns the rights, licenses, hardware, OS, and everything regarding the PSP. Remember that regulations regarding console & PC market are vastly different. Microsoft only makes the operating system, but that doesn't give them ownership of my PERSONAL COMPUTER. Microsoft made the operating system for the Dreamcast, so that means Microsoft owned it, right? =)
Steam IS a platform, you kumquat! Its a platform that exists on a platform.
ROMs aren't legal, you idiot, but that point you made was moronic. XD DUR HUR, I CAN RUN SNES GAMES ON MAH PC, BUT ITS NOT NINTENDO'S FAULT - ITS STILL NINTENDO EXCLUSIVE IP. HUR DUR

Uh they don't have characters to make a Smash Bros style game....and the one they do have don't fit well in that kind of game.

Honestly, wouldn't be too awesome of a roster. Maybe if the billboards had Master Chief's head facing Marcus Fenix with a big VS, it'd sell millions alone.
