Polygon Man as playable character, want it?

16 replies

Personally I say yes, why not..he is an interesting character from his looks alone. A floating head but hey...people request characters for DLC that are humans like Katamari so I think its a fair option to consider.

What about you all? Tell us why or why not. I wouldnt be bother he isnt tbh, cause I have other characters I want in so much lol

  • i prefer him as an unplayable boss...

  • Nah - I know people want more characters and all, but it just wouldn't fit very well in my opinion. Plus I find unlocking the boss really cheesy, it just undermines the experience. I want it to be an all powerful being you have an epic encounter with in the finale of each characters arcade, not someone I'll see multiple version of online.

    @S-o-h-a-i-l, yea but dont other fighters have playable bosses? MK, KOF xiii, etc. Maybe cheesy for this game you mean? Why would it have to be only this game?

    Yea I know what you mean it kind of undermines the boss feel I guess. He would have to be pretty equal to everyone else. Maybe he should have his own stage or something..

    Oh, on that note, I'm still glad he is the boss rather than someone else. At least for the first game make him the boss ya know? I think they did right with this.

  • Maybe for only arcade mode, you've seen how big he is in the recent trailer there's no way that dude can be taken to multiplayer, could you imagine 4 Polygon Men in a match?

    As a playable character I'll only accept him as playable only as a single player bonus, kind of like Galactus mode in UMVC3.

  • ^ Buzz is a Giant in the game. They could always size him down too. Just trying to think of both sides of the equation here

  • Buzz isn't even playable so I fail to see where you get at with that arguement however downsizing probably would be the case since Sackboy isn't his original hight nor is Kratos at his level 3 so I suppose.

  • I actually find it cheesy in all games - including the ones you listed, but then there is a difference in representation between the boss in mash ups and the boss in straight up fighters. Lets use MvC3 & MK as examples:

    In MK, the boss is pretty much designed as a normal playable fighter, so although the encounter is pretty tough, it's not a 'oh imagine playing as him' type of scenario, because its already built as that. In MvC3 however, the boss is designed differently and is supposed to be a one of encounter with a different play style tactic involved then there is for the other fights you have - in this case, it really is a matter of changing the character in the playable form to work as a regular fighter, and it changes the representation of it to really undermine him.
