Create your ideal NRS horror/monster roster
04/28/2016 05:05 AM EST
If they were to make a game similar to Terrordrome, who would you want?

For me:
1. Jason
2. Freddy
3. Ash
4. Pinhead

DLC: BloodRayne & Davy Jones. It would be highly unlikely but if Marvel and DC could work together: Blade.

Terrordrome pretty much has it perfect. Just add Ripley, Xenomorph and Predator.

I'm not familiar with Terrordome's roster, so I might suggest characters that are already in it.


Djinn (from the Wishmaster movies)

From the TCM series other than Leatherface: Chop Top, Hitchhiker, Sheriff Hoyt and Grandpa. Grandpa should be the weakest and the slowest character, a joke character, pretty much.

The Shining: Jack Torrance, and Wendy, who's armed with a baseball bat, a knife and is completely hysterical.

Hellraiser, other than Pinhead: Other Cenobites like Chatterer and Channard, and maybe Julia.

The Dentist, from the Dentist movies starring Corbin Bernsen. He should drill into his opponent's teeth for an attack.

Pumpkinhead

I agree with MacyG88 about Ripley, the Alien and the Predator. Ripley should have Vasquez, Hicks, Hudson, Apone and Ripley 8 as alts, and be armed with guns from Aliens such as the pulse rifle and the smartgun.

Horace Pinker (Shocker)

Leprechaun (from the movies named after it)

F13, other than Jason: His mom, Pamela.

A zombie from the "Return of the living dead" movies, that can talk and run.

Characters and creatures from horror games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill (who says only movies should be represented?).

The Winchester bros (Supernatural), and maybe some critters from that TV series, too.

Jigsaw (Saw), with trap-oriented gameplay.

I wouldn't mind MK characters, like Drahmin, Moloch, Havik, Baraka or Mileena, but we'd probably get borin' old Scorpion again, like there's anything horrifying about him other than his stale storyline.

Victim. Basically, the classic horror movie protagonist. The victim should have several horror movie protagonists as selectable skins, such as Laurie Strode (Halloween). Alternately, they could just be alts for Wendy. Players should also have the option to create their own skins for the victim.

You know who else such a game absolutely needs? The Kung Fu priest from Peter Jackson's Braindead/Dead Alive movie!

Oh, and Derek from Bad Taste, another horror gem from Peter Jackson.

No Chucky?
Carrie.

Christine, sure a car, why not. Aren't there other killer cars? So it's not unbalanced one off.

I would never have thought to add them in a million years. Great suggestion!

In reply to Detox

Thanks.

Since we're talking TV characters, I'd also add Mulder and Scully (X-Files, duh), as well as Ichabod Crane, Abbie Mills and the Headless Horseman from Sleepy Hollow, and Dexter Morgan (Why not? A lot of characters in such a game would be serial killers anyway, and Dexter was partially a horror show).


In reply to Tetra_Vega

Of course I'd like Chucky in. I just have too many picks for a single post.

About Christine, nice pick. Here's my own odd pick: Jaws, who'd swim in the air and in the ground a la Cyrax.


Some more picks:

D'Vorah

Isaac Clarke (Dead Space)

Pluto (The hills have eyes, with Michael Berryman's likeness)

Nosferatu (from the 1922 movie, complete with a black & white background)

Dracula (both the Christopher Lee and Gary Oldman versions, whether they're separate characters or alt skins).

CastleVania characters (that would easily be a list of it's own, so I'll only suggest Sypha and Shanoa)

Blade

Syngenor (from the Syngenor movies)

Critters, and Ug (from the Critters movies)

Sil (Species)


That's it for now.

Three other picks: Killer Klowns (from Killer Klowns from Outer Space), Buffy the vampire slayer, Angel and Spike (both Buffy characters).

Also, who here wouldn't mind if a horror-themed fighting game's gameplay was exactly like a MK game's? I'd have no problem with unique gameplay features, but I truly wouldn't mind if it literally was "Horror Kombat". MKX was a great game for the four guests to take on one another in.

Finally, should such a game get it's own story mode? I'd really love to see how NRS would handle a storyline featuring various horror icons.

All restrictions out the window, I'd love to see classic monsters square off against the new-wave horror baddies in an INJUSTICE style game.

Team Classic:

Dracula

The Mummy

The Wolfman

Frankenstein's Monster

The Monster's Bride

The Gillman

Mr. Hyde

Marya Zaleska



Team New:

Freddy Kreuger

Jason Voorhees

Pinhead

Michael Meyers

Carrie

Regan, from the Exorcist

A xenomorph

Chucky



DLC:

The Thing/From Another World (alternate costumes change it from the original to the John Carpenter version posessing a crew member)

Robby the Robot

Ashley J. Williams

Abraham Van Helsing

Ellen Ripley


All the classic characters and stages would appear in black and white while all the new characters and stages would be colorized. Each character would, upon ladder completion, recieve an alt costume designed in the opposite manner; Dracula gets a new 1980s designed alt in color while Chucky gets a 1930s doll costume in black and white, and so on.




And of course the ladder boss is Cthulhu

I can't believe I didn't think of Carrie and Regan. Great choice, coltess! Robby the robot and the Thing are also interesting choices.

Here are some more picks of my own:


House hag and Undead Ben (from the movie House)

The Blob (From, well, the Blob, a 50s movie remade in the 80s. I've only seen the latter so it's that version I have in mind).

Engineer (Prometheus)

Seth Brundle, from The Fly (Starring Jeff Goldblum).

I also had this horror-themed redesign of Mokap in mind, where instead of motion-capturing balls, he has those disgustingly large tumorous growths all over his body.

Hannibal Lecter, with an outro where he's hosting a party and feeding his opponent to his guests (who are unaware of what they're actually eating). One guest would ask where the meat is from, and Hannibal would reply by saying they don't want to know. Certain opponents would taste differently, which would result in different reactions from guests, and different answers from Hannibal himself.
