ANNOUNCEMENT

This thread will be going on hiatus after finalizing these assists. Honestly got busy recently with other things & want to wait till i get caught up & things cool off before jumping into the final game so I give it more attention like i previously did.

Dont want to give a firm timeframe, was initially thinking id only be extra busy for a couple days but that has already turned into weeks. Maybe about a month but this subject to change to be shorter or longer.

Pirate Lord's my vote (HOW DID I FORGET ABOUT HIM) and also, in order,
  1. Mercy (Pretty obvious candidate on a mechanical level, makes a lot of sense to be honest. Plus, they're probably the game's best-known healer.)
  2. Reinhardt (This one's pretty fun, given his whole shield mechanic, even though I can see a little overlap on the "tank" archetype.)
  3. Tracer (She is the game's poster child, and having some kind of "reversal" mechanic if you manage to K.O. her could be a lot of fun.)
Also, take as much time as you need! This time of year can get pretty manic with a lot of stuff, so try not to overwork yourself, mkay? :)

  1. ClimaX (Hey, I'm a sucker for hiding thematically appropriate letters in stuff - and the name works pretty well too!)

  3. Universe (With so many characters already being space-faring, I think this is oddly fitting.)
Job #071
Character Name: Rathbone
Character Origin: Sea of Thieves (2018)




Rathbone's a unique case here in that while his game was included in the last title, he didn't actually exist yet... but I think he's perfectly-suited to inclusion in this game because of it. For context, he's a Skeleton Lord (a reoccuring boss type in the game) who's the leader of one of the in-game factions, the Gold Hoarders. In fact, his greed is powerful enough to have animated him after his own death - and for him to have replaced parts of his body with his treasures.

In terms of gameplay, we could easily pull elements from his boss fights. As well as using a shovel to bury holes and warp through the ground, he also fights with a pistol and cutlass, can summon massive bags of gold to create shockwaves with, or even summon additional skeletons to do his bidding.

I think we're in a good spot for a lot of the characters we've included thus far, and Rathbone - or, as he's become known, the Gold Hoarder - feels like a really fun inclusion alongside the others. There's a few characters I've considered submitting here (Atriox being one of them), but Rathbone specifically springs to mind as an obvious but fun character who could be really interesting to both play as and fight against.

Crash Bandicoot
Represents the more cartoony side of Activision and it helps that he's got an improvement in relevancy from the last game

Kait Diaz
Protagonist of the newer Gears of War games. Originaly introduced a member of the rebel group known as the Outsiders, in Gears 5 she joins COG and becomes a corporal. She'd be too slim to really be a Marcus clone and instead would be her own character who takes inspiration from him but is her own fighter with her own moves.

Senua (Hellblade)
A series that Xbox have really started to push around this time. I did debate on including her due to the games heavy subject matter and themes but I think you could do it. She would use her sword and tap into her focus power, kinda like Shulk in Smash where she could avoid players moves.

Captain John Price


Was originally kind of mixed on nominating an ABK rep since the acquisition announcement is about a year away but once again it is probably safe to assume the deal was going on in the background for a while beforehand which would hit our time frame. Regardless, the company has lots of characters but CoD is huge & is seeing a resurgence thanks to the new Modern Warfare games & the Warzone BR. Even without that it is still one of the biggest gaming series out there & would be a big deal to see added for many.

Newcomer Voting
Nominees

Atriox (Schnee117)
Lich King (DragonRobotKing26)
Rathbone (KneeOfJustice99)
Crash Bandicoot (Northsouthmap)
Kait Diaz (darkvortex)
Senua (TORNADO BUS DRIVER)
Cpt. Price (nirvanafan)

Vote for your top 4, self votes not in 1st, top 3 overall will be added.

Really like all our picks so did a little writeup of my thoughts on each, this is obviously not required though, is just for fun.

1 Senua - believe she was decently considered as dlc last time, makes alot of sense.

2 Atriox - only non-Bungie Halo i played was Infinite & was definitely able to see his influence on the world, like him repping Halo Wars & Brutes too. 2nd since i tend to prioritize new ip.

3 Cpt Price - self vote

4 Kait Diaz - can picture her as our Isabelle semi-clone rep. Not really into Gears of War but do think the series is big enough for a new rep & not sure if there are any better choices.

Crash Bandicoot - a series i grew up with & really enjoy, despite that think only adding 1 ABK for now makes the most sense & Cpt Price just seems more logical to me. Would fit better as DLC around the ABK acquisition announcement imo.

Lich King - same as above. Admittedly a bit more mixed on this one. Not aware of WoW or this character appearing on Xbox although series impact & popularity could let us overlook that.

Rathbone - An interesting idea. Honestly feel like one Sea of Thieves is perfect. Am sold & would even say he is my favorite choice for a potential new boss fight though.

1. Senua
2. Atriox
3. Kait
4. Price

The first three feel like sensible first party picks for a newcomer. Hellblade is being pushed around this time and would rep another buyout dev. Atriox and Kait are good picks for existing series, both being pretty big characters.

I feel we can hold off on more Activision right now. They've only just gotten Bethesda at this point in time. Love Crash but I think COD feels more Xbox to me.

God of Illusion, not alot of options, was between this & Surt the Fire Giant.

Bridge to Helheim

Perhaps similar to Bridge of Eldin, also considered Shipwreck Shore but thought theming would be too similar to something like Sea of Thieves.

Hellblade content can still be submitted through the weekend but if no other nominees by Monday then my content will be used.

Job 73 - Nominate a newcomer from the Bethesda/Zenimax buyout. Surprised no-one was nominated in our 1st set of newcomer nominees. Only fighter we have is Doom Slayer & with buyout being announced this same year company would probably get at least 1 newcomer.

My nominee will be submitted later.

Fallout is kind of a must for a game like this IMO. I know there's demand for Vault Boy but I honestly don't know if I'm super keen on that idea if him honest. I think using the Power Armor would be cool and it's super iconic. Considered a Vault Dweler but wasn't sure what could do there. There's a lot of crazy weapons you could play with.

Corvo (Dishonored)


Found myself leaning towards Arkane. Morgan Yu (Prey) was a close 2nd but felt like Corvo would stand out more on our roster & Deathloop was consider but probably too new. Dishonored is a spirtual successor to Thief & decently popular in its own right. Lots of good choices though with series like Wolfenstein, Quake, & Rage being notable but missing our nominee cut.

Voting Time
Nominees

Commander Keen (Qwerty UIOP)
Dragonborn/DovahKiin (Northsouthmap)
Encave Soldier (darkvortex)
Corvo (nirvanafan)

Vote for your top 2, self votes in second, top 2 overall will be added.

1 Dragonborn
2 Corvo

Encave Soldier - Fallout is a tough exclusion from our roster but with limited space i thought having our bethesda reps coming from different branches (main, id, & arkane) would work best & i felt like Elder Scrolls made more sense for our roster. Perhaps a Vault Boy or something else as an assist would still rep the series well.

Commander Keen - Similar to above would come from Id side of things where we already have Doom. Will say though this retro character is a fun, unexpected pick that i would like to also see like to make some sort of other appearance.
