E3: Pac-Man sucks (Smash Files 37)

Posted by Voltex , in Smash Files Jun 13 2014 · 219 views

E3 2014 - Pac-Man Profile
Posted Image
Species: ???
Series: Pac-Man
First Appearance: Pac-Man (Arcade, 1980)

Favourite Appearance: Any arcade-style Pac-Man game
Party: 3rd
Known For: Revolutionizing gaming, not transferring to 3D well, being a terrible new addition to Smash.
Excitement Factor: 2/10 - I think we all knew (or suspected) that Pac-Man would end up in the game when it was announced that Namco was assisting in development. That does not mean that I like it, or that I even wanted it. I would take Agnes Oblige instead of this stupid person any day.

To be fair, if third party characters are going to be in this game, adding the most iconic ones from the history of gaming (Sonic, Megaman and Pac-Man) is the best way to go.

 

Far better than some weird obscure character from some weird third party game I've never played. That said, I might have preferred him if he was always in the form from that second screenshot.

 

Also, what do you make of the potential characters listed in the Gematsu character leak?

I think that leak had merit. If they can do chrom without him being a clone of the other sword characters I'm all for it.I could do without the choir boss though.

I don't know if I'd agree with the 'not transferring to 3D well' part... It might've taken a few games, but one of the PS2 Pacman World games was a pretty solid platformer; but I don't remember if it was 3 or 4. Haven't really played the PS1 games, though.

I thought the same about Pacman being a not-so-great addition at first, before the video released, but then I was cautiously optimistic... Even if I'll likely never use Pacman. =P

I was stoked when this was announced.

Pac-Man doesn't suck, he noms. 

 

(also I was kinda excited too, honestly. I really liked that old 3d pacman world that blade is talking about as a kid.)

I think the biggest problem is the same as Spyro; everyone thinks of his newest incarnation and, well, yeah. But, like Spyro, he did have a good incarnation at one point.

Absolutely true. Better than Solid Snake who was clearly a personal favor from one developer to another.

Plus, he's not "Pac-Man as Pac-Man," he's "Pac-Man as all of Namco," considering his attacks also reference Galaga at the least.

I totally understand the decision to add him in and it makes sense; I'm just not really a fan off the character to begin with.
