PSone characters are the Gem treasures to get more hardcore gamers that grew up with Playstation since the begining.
As i read fans comments such as Facebook, forums and Youtube, requesting characters that started from the 90s are the most i hear of and most have been saying they dont have the game and would get it if their wanted character is in.
One of the things I've noticed in All-Stars is how boring the pre-fight loading is. Just larger versions of the character select pics. Half the time the icons aren't even like the person is ready to duke it out! I feel like the loading screen needs to have a different feeling. One that basically makes you feel like you have to fight with whatever it takes to win.
At first I thought different pictures would be fine, but it got a different idea: instead of all four characters in a line, make it a 2 by 2 square. Then, maybe add some pics of the characters ready for battle, all facing the center of the square from their respective box (basically say P1 is Jak, he would be in the top-right corner. Maybe for that Jak would be aiming his Blaster towards the center of the entire box. But if he's P3 in the box below, maybe he'd aim his Peacemaker up towards the center, see?). I would really add of sense of actual battle to warm you up for the fight. Hope you like my idea
Just updated the OP with a few more community suggestions. Check em out!
And interesting idea digitalman. I totally agree that the pre-fight loading screens are boring, and your idea would definitely help spice it up. Only problem I could see is that this would mean that the developers would have to create at least 4 portraits per character, maybe even more for 1v1 and 3 player matches.
Glad you like it. I could see that being an issue, but if it's a 1v1 thing, they can use like the top left corner and bottom right, or vice versa, and they could probaby stay for 1v3. Glad to contribute!
Thanks! Glad more people are becoming aware of this thread and liking the ideas. Don't forget to discuss a few of your own!
How about what injustice did? Have four distinct character "Poses" that coincide with their position in the selection screen? And then have that show on the loading screen. Like, say, Radecs crouched and pointing a gun towards the center if he's player one, if he's player two, he's jumping towards the center with a knife slightly to the right, that sorta thing. Maybe drakes swinging in on his rope things, or Sackboys jumping in with his poppit. It would make the loading screen much more dynamic.
