Comes out tomorrow apparently, then on Friday I go pick up my copy of Bayonetta 2 that I fully paid off at Gamestop literally years ago, like when they not only announced it but it was then put up for pre order. Gonna pick up the Evil Within as well, rented it from a Redbox and played a couple chapters and I'm liking what I played so hell I'm gonna get it. Still in a bit of an artist drought right now, more focused on writing than drawing so I'm kind of unable to draw a damn thing right now....
Anyhoo I'm writing this just to vent and get out of a writing funk, another one of those "Terry writes random concept shit down for the lolz" journal entries that I haven't done very often as of late.
Y'know what I'd like to see? A Shonen Jump crossover game that basically starred Jojo, like everything regarding the story mode was basically like this- (X=SJ Franchise) (Y=SJ character from X that the player chooses to play as)The final battle of X is coming to a close. The villains employ a last ditch effort utilizing time and space distortion to win the war, it works but far from what the villains intended. Instead of merely recreating the world in their image this distortion merely brings something from another universe all together.....a massive stone pillar of which three seemingly dead beings come back to life when they get a hold of fresh blood.
The Pillar Men are reborn. Thanks to the time distortion the terrifying trio of Kars, Wamuu and Esidisi are once again alive and free to run amuck as they please. Their first order of business is to ravage the world of X, namely feed off as many of the heroes and villains of X as they possibly can before then going to find the Red Stone of Aja to complete a plan they started eons ago.
Y is the only one left, whether the only one able to stand or just the only one left alive is unclear, all that is known to Y is that they are the only one who was lucky enough to weather/survive the sudden storm of vampiric fury. And it is Y who is found by a mysterious stranger calling himself DIO. This stranger has come to draft Y, imploring Y to take responsibility for the utter folly his world has wrought and stop the Pillar Men from becoming "perfect beings" free to devour the now connected parallel universes at their leisure. Whether or not Y acceps this task willingly matters not for this DIO leaves them no other choice but to follow him, his strange charisma and deafening aura enough to control even the most dangerous villains of X. And thus the race is on for Y and DIO to hunt down the Pillar Men before it's too late....but one wonders what will happen if DIO does manage to bring the Pillar Men down, perhaps Y would only end up trading one dangerous threat to all the parallel universe for another.....
All the while, a group of five powerful psychic Crusaders following the trails of Stardust embark on the same mission to stop the Pillar Men. Their real target however is DIO himself.
This game would be called "Dio's World" since by all accounts Dio would actually be the main character.
I'd like to see Platimum make a game like this, take their expertise in action game systems and apply it to a dedicated one on one fighter. Like literally if Bayonetta was a fighting game, a far better outcome than all those recent Dragon Ball and Naruto "fighting games" that focus more on the "authentic Dragon Ball experience" than actually making a fun goddamn game. Super Mode would be much more streamlined and balanced compared to all other "anime fighters", all it would do is allow a character to access alternate movesets not too far removed from their standard layouts and give them entirely different Super Moves, no bullshit power buffs or unfair moves. And you can only have one Super Mode at a time, none of that crap where you can just transform from Super Saiyan One all the way up to Super Saiyan Gogeta, just pick one and stick with it. All characters would have one Super Mode by default with any additional ones available being unlockable. Roster would also be more balanced, not some insane hundred plus character bullshit like in the recent Ninja Storm games (I mean Jesus do we really need every fucking last character in Naruto in one game?) Each represented franchise would at most get nine characters tops, four from the start, four standard unlockable and one super secret unlockable. And aside from DLC only six highlight franchises (and two hidden franchises) would be showcased on the disc to keep things tight...JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTUREDio Brando-The World-Empowered DioJotaro Kujo-Star Platinum-Star Platinum the WorldOld Joseph Joestar-Hermit Purple-American CrackersJean Pierre Polnareff-Silver Chariot-AnubisNoriaki Kakyoin-Hierophant GreenMuhammad Abdol-Magician's RedIggy-The FoolHol Horse-J.Geil's the Hangman-Boingo's ThothCaesar Anthonio Zappeli-Bubble CutterDRAGON BALLSon Goku-Super Saiyan Goku-Super Saiyan 3-Super Saiyan 4-Super Saiyan GodPiccolo Junior-Great Namek-Fusion with KamiFrieza-Second Form Frieza-Third Form Frieza-Final Form FriezaCell-Semi-Perfect Cell-Perfect CellFuture Trunks-Super Saiyan Trunks-3rd Grade Super SaiyanKurillin-Unlockable Potential-Team Up with Kid Gohan-Team Up with Android 18Android 16-Power Core OverclockPrince Vegeta-Mighty Ooozaru-Super Saiyan Vegeta-Ascended Saiyan-Super Saiyan 4Beerus-Judgment Time!BLEACHIchigo Kurosaki-Tensa Zangetsu-Vizard Mask Ichigo-Hollow Ichigo (Hueco Mondo Arc)-Saigo No Getsuga TenshouOrihime Inoue-Team up with Sado Yasutora-Team Up with Rukia Kuchiki Kenpachi Zaraki-Eyepatch Removal-NozarashiGrimmjow Jaegerjaquez-Resurrección PanteraUryu Ishida-Ginrei Kojaku-Seele SchneiderYoruichi Shihoin-Shunpo-Anti-Hierro Armor-Team Up with Kisuke UraharaByakuya Kuchiki-Senbonzakura KageyoshiUlquiorra Cifer-Resurrección Murciélago-Resurrección Segunda EtapaSosuke Aizen-Hōgyoku Fourth Fusion-Hōgyoku Final FusionONE PIECEMonkey D.

Well that was fun while it lasted. Now to get back to what I'm suppose to be doing right now....
