Will give one more day for our current jobs since there may have been some confusion for a bit.

Want to check in though for feedback on how the thread is being run. Can speak from experience that it can be frustrating to be working on a nominee to only get ninjad or have the thread move on before you finish & know D darkvortex just ran into that situation. Should i slow the thread down a little, have less categories at once for stage & assist jobs, or do you have any other ideas or things you want to see?

Job 35 - Same character job as last time, nominate a 1st & 3rd party fighter to be added to the roster as DLC but now in 2011
.

Doesnt need to be from 2011 but added a list so we know what may be getting a push around the timeframe.

Full House Poker
Fable III
Kinect Fun Labs
Ms. Splosion Man
Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet
Toy Soldiers Cold War
Crimson Alliance
The Gunstringer
Gears of War 3
Forza 4
Kinect Sports 2
Halo CE Anniversary Edition

My nominees

1st Party - Forza Driver

Has a stage but is a big series for Xbox that will also get a big spinoff soon. Kind of out there but can see it working using different car parts for attacks.

3rd Party - Faith Conners

HM to Commander Shepherd, wanted to go with one of the ea studios (bioware & dice) who had Microsoft published games in the past. Even though Mass Effect had a more recent entry I figured wed go with a brand new nominee instead.

Inphyy

The main character of the 2006 hack and slash game Ninety-Nine Nights. A Temple Knight with a vicious streak. She is a swordswoman of unparalleled skill, and can also use her wings to fly around. Her special gameplay gimmick is "Orb Attack" / "Orb Spark" . Attacking enemies with Inphyy brings out red orbs, collecting these orbs allowed you to fill up a meter. Once the bar is full, a player may press B to enter "Orb Attack" mode, where the character can use more powerful attacks for a brief moment. Once this is over, they can can unleash a super-devastating, screen-clearing "Orb Spark" attack.

Inphyy's game just got a sequel in 2010 so while she's not the protagonist of that game, I think she makes sense to include as a promotional character.

Frank West
Dead Rising was a pretty big exclusive title for the Xbox and we don't have a Capcom rep yet. it is another horror character so soon after Big Daddy but I think that's okay since they they are so different in so many ways. He would have an extremely fun moveset with all his weapon combos and wacky things he can pull out. He could have a crafting gimmick. Dead Rising just got a sequel in 2010, which was multi platform and didn't star Frank West but I still think it's a series that's well known for its Xbox ties.

Pacific City
From the game Crackdown. Fight in a city that is being destroyed as you fight. Buildings will fall apart and break and helicopters will crash into the stage. It's a pretty crazy stage and would be designed more for fun play than competitive.

Rapture is the perfect pick so I won't submit there. BTW Vooodo Vince and Blue Dragon's stages are missing from the front post.

My Nominees

Old West Theatre


Not familiar with the game, according to wikipedia it takes place at an old west theatre & is split into 4 areas (desert, bayou, valley, wasteland/underworld) which i guess can be traveled between. This stage will be used by default as no other nominees were submitted.

Wont compete with Willamette Parkview Mall, is the perfect rep for the series.

Biltmore Logging Camps


Havent played Alan Wake but does seem to have several interesting locations stage wise. Thought this could be an interesting stage & occurs relatively early in the game so most people probably at least saw it. Perhaps also could have a section at Stucky's Gas Station which was another consideration.

Garage


The hub of the JSR games. Good area to see & practice series mechanics & have stage cameos.

Vote for your top 2 JSR & Alan Wake stages, most votes for each gets added.

1 Cauldron Lake Lodge (Northsouthmap)
2 Biltmore Logging Camps (myself)

1 99th Street (Qwerty UIOP)
2 Shibuya-Cho Terminal (Northsouthmap)
HM Garage (myself)

I may be a little busier than usual after the weekend with the upcoming holidays for the next couple weeks so i may be a little less consistent here but will hopefully still be able update at least a couple times a week.

1. Cauldron Lake Lodge (Northsouthmap)
2. Biltmore Logging Camps (Nirvanafan)

1. 99th Street (Qwerty UIOP)
2. Shibuya-Cho Terminal (Northsouthmap)

Thanks again for another roster image, will add to op shortly.

I agree assists would be cool for our dlc. Anyone else have any thoughts? Thought about saving it for when these series are in the base game for a future entry but now that i think about it more why not take care of it now?

Darkvortex & I both had the same top votes so Cauldron Lake Lodge & 99th Street will be our final stages for the 360.

Have elected to include DLC assists now as well as suggested by darkvortex.

Job 38 - Nominate an assist for each of our 1st Party new series (see below).

Crackdown
Gunstinger
Alan Wake

Will submit my nominees later.

Here are my nominees, job will be open until tomorrow.

Crackdown - Dr. Baltazar Czernenko



Creator of the Freaks mob which appeared in Crackdown & served a bigger role in Crackdown 2. Could maybe use elements from them &/or the general evil dr. archetype.

Gunstringer - Oil Barron


The 1st antagonist of Gunstringer, not much else to say, thought an oil businessman could be an interesting, unique assist.

Alan Wake - Danny (Image)
Couldnt find a good image outside fandom that doesnt work on smashboards. Is a Taken which seems to be a big part of Alan Wake & has sledgehammer to attack with which made him stand out for me while looking into characters from the 1st game.

Danny

Brent Slappy Ernst

Wanted to go with a psychopath from DR2 which had been released the previous year & liked this idea.

Jack (art by Nyru180)

Since Big Daddy is our fighter though the 1st games protag would make sense as an assist.

Hayashi (think is concept)

Wanted to go with an antagonist & thought one of the police captains would work better than Goji Rokkaku. Went with JSRF character due to closer Xbox ties even though JSR is about to get a re-release.
