This game is really weird to me.

Don't take offence, but as a pro Smash player that's been playing since Smash64, this game seems really weird to me. A lot of these Sony characters, IMO, look like bootleg versions of Nintendo characters, and some of these characters seem a little too serious because of the fact that I consider Smash style gameplay/theme to be a lot more lighthearted/silly/not so serious (not saying these games can't have deep metagames, just that there's a lighter theme then other fighters like MK). Some of these characters, like Big Daddy, are slightly off putting given the mature theme that Bioshock games have going on (they're pretty much borderline horror games, it's like saying Freddy Kreuger is in the new Smash game). I know Snake is in Brawl, but look at that butt, do you really take that seriously?

Stop reading at the mention of Snake butt, got lost in sexy thoughts.

I agree, this game could use more silliness. I hope they address that in the story mode.

What's also weird is that this game has Sackboy, but doesn't have Spyro and Crash. Sackboy can eat my sack.

Agree.

Also, because SSB series is more light-hearted, this is a lil hardcore...so it caters to the more hardcore gamers...why not? Win-win situation there. Don't want seriousness, go SSB. Want a bit of seriousness, take PSASBR.

I didn't kill him. He seemed like a pretty decent guy.
But I did shoot him in the testicles.

That's just the difference in design choices; Nintendo always had more colorful, lighthearted characters while Sony always had more serious, mature-style characters. That's the way it's always been.

That still doesn't mean Sony characters don't fit in a game like this as good as Nintendo characters do.

What's also really weird is that there's a mix of light-hearted characters with mature characters. Is Kratos gonna rip off Sly Coopers leg, beat him to death with it and then have sex with Fat Princess or something?

Sounds like a good idea to me.

You have my permission to not say mean things about Sackboy anymore.

Seriously, why poop on the game for not being silly/light-hearted/fun and then complain about Sackboy being in it when he alone can do everything you just said and more?

There are also characters like Toro or Parappa who are really charming/adorable.

Don't forget that the audience for this game is people who buy Playstation games. That's a much more diverse array of people than people who buy Nintendo games, and those fans tend to have wildly different preferences between them. You can't just add only cutesy characters, or only violent ones, or only shooter characters.

If I haven't mentioned Kat in my post, it's because she is so beautiful and precarious that I just wanted to show her how much she means to me.
