Rumor: Sony Smash Bros. Game Incoming [Update]
Posted on Tuesday, November 1 @ 08:48:27 Eastern by Anthony SeverinoOn the eve of the biggest reveal of the year -- tomorrow's GTAV trailer -- news is bound to be slow. I mean, who wants to announce anything right now? It's only going to be completely overshadowed by Grand Theft Auto V. But one man, a karate master, dares to go up against the juggernaut with a wild rumor that's backed up by asbolutely no facts or evidence.
Meet Paul Gale, the man, the myth, the mildly retarded. Part karate-master, part games journalist, he's worked on a number of esteemed media outlets like 1UP and EGM Magazine, as well as working on TV shows such as XPLAY. The wake of his punches are like a "Gale" force wind. He's so amazing, he even named an entire network after himself.
Today, Mr. Gale "is proud to reveal one of PlayStation 3's surprise games". And despite offering no pics or videos, and refusing to supply details on the "name of the game", "publisher", "developer", or "release date", Paul insists "this is real, and this is awesome".
It has to be awesome, it has Nathan Drake, Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Fat Princess and Parappa the Rapper in it, all duking it out to see who is the most smashing of Sony characters. Other characters outside of key Sony franchises are being considered. Paul Gale demonstrates one such character being considered by donning a 007 outfit (pictured right).
The next bit of information -- how virbant and colorful the backgrounds of the stages are -- can only be fully comprehended or appreciated by viewing Paul Gale in a Tron suit, set among a vibrant city backdrop.
I wish I could say this is a fake parody article featuring some pictures I found of some guy in various Halloween costumes - but I can't. This is a legit and true person, claiming all the things I've outlined above. I know it's hard to believe -- as is his baseless rumor -- but it's true (not the rumor, but him). So, sad - but true.
[Update] Confirmed. He lives with his mom. The tablecloth and placemats is all the evidence we need (see below). The Nintendo 64 kid shirt doesn't help his case, either.
