What this game needs

Recommended Posts

I'll just list them here:

(-- indicates idea itself, - indicates a feature explanation)

______________________________________________

-- A revamped combat system

-Use of the control pad to select commands like:

Attack(for basic attacks)

Skill(for skills, which should include at least 2 additional ones for each costume)

Item(Yes, items)

- A little more variety to basic attack commands

- More difference in stats for each costume

___________________________________________________

-- A second story

- Pretty much, after beating the game once, you get the ability to go into a part 2, which involves an extended ending in part 1 which,after the whole candy sequence at the very end, fast fowards to one year later.

This time, Big Bones starts kidnapping kids and sends a demand to the hero kids that they either give up their souls to him or he'll take the souls from the kidnapped kids instead. Hoping to maybe get another bargaining chip, they search for the necessary amount of candy to maybe change his mind. And their will be 4 endings, 1 for if you make it but don't have enough candy, and lose to big bones, 1 for if you make it with enough candy, but lose, 1 for if you don't get enough candy but win, and 1 if you get enough candy and win.

-You start in the same first town as part one but after that move on to the portal you see at the end of part 1 and go through at least 2 more areas from there.

- There will also be a level cap increase; to 20 or maybe even 30 at least.

- New game features like an entirely new set of cards, which will support a card battle system(still need to think of this), an online multi player battle arena, and equips, which are separate from stamps and go with specific costumes, which boost stats and sometimes give abilities like setting an enemy on fire.

_______________________________________________________

The first one should be an update, the second one really does belong in DLC though, which I don't mind.

This game has potential and I want to see it succeed, hence this thread.

If anything else comes up, I'll add to this.

A lot of changes wanted there, to a game that is designed for both youngsters, and us oldies. ( im in my 30's )

the picture on the front of the Doublefine site says it all:

It's a cop out though to only aim it at kids, and not really pay attention to the rest of us wanting another difficulty option at all (especially considering who buys Double Fine games, was it little kids buying Brutal Legend? Yikes.)

Revamped combat system - I wouldn't really say it NEEDS it. Not worth the money it would take to make the update, since the combat works fine at the moment. If you want a bit more difficulty, don't do the battle quicktime events.

But do many people like it much? From what I've read, not really.

As for the sequel... Sorry, but no. By far the best thing about Tim's and Double Fine's games are their variety and originality. I think a sequel, especially for a game like this which is, let's face it, pretty limited in its potential for variation, would be a waste of time, considering we could have a different, original game instead.

I'd consider it more of an extension than a sequel. As for the variation part, it's possible, just need to think on how to pull it off, that's all.

It’s a cop out though to only aim it at kids, and not really pay attention to the rest of us wanting another difficulty option at all (especially considering who buys Double Fine games, was it little kids buying Brutal Legend? Yikes.)

As stated above, not too many people like the overly simple combat, at least of the older group. Maybe having a Kid mode(with the simple combat already in place for younger ones), and a Normal mode(for the older group) could do?

I would say a lot of the humor is not aimed at kids. I don't think some added combat options would hurt it even if it were for kids. Heck, why not have a 'kids mode' and a normal mode. That would be the best of both worlds. See the 'Combat' thread for discussion on that in particular.
