Friday Night Fights: Xbro Badasses Skirmish Extravaganza

The recent unveiling of two new characters for Sony’s upcoming take on Smash Bros, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, got me thinking: what would Microsoft’s version of this game look like? I’ll grant you that the Xbox brand has a much shorter history than that of Sony or Nintendo, but certainly they could come up with the 20 or so characters required for a game of this nature… right?

Hell, I’ve already done most of the work for them! (Hit the jump to see my awesome wish list.)

  • Master Chief (Halo series)
  • The Arbiter (Halo series)
  • Sergeant Johnson (Halo series)
  • The Flood — all of them (Halo series)
  • Kung-Fu Action Conjoined Twins Marcus and Dom (Gears of War series)
  • Zombified Maria (Gears of War series)
  • Sam Fisher (Splinter Cell series)
  • that sound effect Sam Fisher’s goggles makes (Splinter Cell series)
  • Joanna Dark (Perfect Dark series)
  • Banjo and Kazooie (Banjo Kazooie series)
  • Conker the Squirrel (Conker series)
  • Reaver, AKA Stephen God Damn Fry (Fable series)
  • Ms Splosion Man (Ms Splosion Man)
  • Captain Smiley (Comic Jumper)
  • The Gunstringer (The Gunstringer)
  • The Maw (The Maw)
  • Kameo (Kameo: Elements of Power)
  • Nathan Drake Zachary and his airplane (Crimson Skies)
  • Fulgore (Killer Instinct)
  • Cinder (Killer Instinct)
  • the entire cast of Brute Force (Brute Force)
  • the pinatas (Viva Pinata series)
  • a Trench (Iron Brigade)
  • one of those douchebags in the hamster balls (Fuzion Frenzy)
  • a car (Forza series)

And that was just off the top of my head!

As for the gameplay, we already know how that will work: it will be exactly like Smash Bros. Duh!

So what about you? Who or what would you add from the Xbox catalog? Once you’re done pondering, let’s play some actual videogames!

Friday Night Fights

New to FNF? Read this! Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It’s a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs followed by a recap post here on the front page for last-minute planning.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you’d rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below! We’ll see you online!
