    What about Alkatras in Crysis 3 because i think he can be called upcoming because he didn't speak at all in Crysis 2 until the very end of the campaign

    Did you just say "lady protagonist"? Is that like lady doctor or lady lawyer or lady cop? Seriously... wow... Slap yourself for me please. Thank you.

    I was excited for Dishonored until I realized Bethesda was behind it. Name the last Bethesda game that came out with proper QA testing, and I'll name the last Bioware game that came out in the last few years that didn't have 3 or 4 cookie cutter endings.

    That's easy, Mass Effect 2. Don't pretend that the two "challenges" are equal. And if you don't understand how thousands and thousands of interlaced dependencies and create a Q&A nightmare far beyond most games, then, well, you'll never understand why Bethesda's gametesting actually *IS* decent. Sure, their games aren't technically perfect, but it's pretty close to impossible to do that.

    Can't wait for Dishonered.

    <Most gamers aren't too fond of escort missions, let alone an entire game built around that concept.> ICO!!!

    Yep, and frankly, I'm not very fond of that game either >>

    I couldn't really care about most of these protagonists. Nilin does seem interesting though. There aren't many black female protagonists in gaming and fewer again that have memory implantation devices. Her voice actor isn't so good though. Corvo is fairly cool as well. The rest seem a bit generic. They do look to appear in some good games though.

    Joel and Ellie seem to be fantastical characters. Seeing as I've fallen in love with both despite only hearing a few lines of non-important dialogue and 3 word banter between the two, most of which was gameplay contextual. Good writers can hit the small notes the best. I've never been more invested in a character, especially not one I haven't even gotten behind the wheel of.
  • gilgamesh310 - August 22, 2012 1:12 a.m.

    They seem okay. I never cared much for any previous Naughty Dog characters though.

    I'd add Oliver from Ni no Kuni, a chick from tokyo jungle (interesting because I'm curious as to how they'd survive) and the three new characters announced for Blazblue Chrono Phantasma, Amane Nishiki, Bullet and Azrael.
  • BladedFalcon - August 21, 2012 10:05 p.m.

    Have to disagree greatly with the BB new characters, at least based on a purely character design standpoint, in which all three are terrible and utterly stereotypical when it comes to anime archetypes.
  • taokaka - August 22, 2012 1:08 a.m.

    I see where you are coming from, each character certainly demonstrates some sort of visual stereotype but to me the characters seem quite intriguing due to how little has been revealed about them so far. For example one of Amane's moves traps Ragna in a flower then he breaks out as a child which certainly interested me. Also I didn't mention the weird thing at the end which looks like a mech cauldron, that certainly has me interested. But I suppose it could just be more curiosity induced by my high expectations than genuine interest that has me intrigued at this point.
  • BladedFalcon - August 22, 2012 1:02 p.m.

    Fair enough regarding the gameplay style of the characters. That being said, i don't think that was the aim of the article, as in, they were talking about characters that looked genuinely interesting character-wise, not necessarily gameplay-wise.
  • into the sound - August 22, 2012 6:57 a.m.

    if you're repulsed by anime archetypes, why are you playing BB?
  • BladedFalcon - August 22, 2012 12:52 p.m.

    First of all, you're putting words in my mouth. Never I said that I was repulsed by the characters, or anime archetypes. I simply find them clichéd and visually, not all that interesting. Secondly, BB is a fighting game, not an anime. And the fighting mechanics are incredibly polished and awesome regardless of what I actually think of the character's visual design. Thirdly, I actually like a good portion of the original cast from BlazBlue. Hazama is classy, and you can at least tell they tried to do something different with the design of rachael and his servants. The latest three characters aren't even trying.
